Concert Tonight

We're going to go see Mat Kearney's concert tonight downtown. It should be pretty cool. For those of you that haven't heard of him you can check him out at His music is great! He just has one of those voices and does some really awesome things musically. Matt Wertz is opening for him. I have only heard a couple of his songs, but I like what I've heard so far. So, if you are looking for someone new to listen to, check these guys out!

Oh, and congrats to my friends, Becky and Adam, on their new arrival on Tuesday. A cute baby girl!

First Serious Thoughts

I want to share a few thoughts I have had the last couple days. I saw a bumper sticker the other day stating, "Proud member of the religious left wing." I thought to myself, " What religion is this guy that he can be left wing? Obviously not a Christian." If this guy is a Christian, what a terrible witness. I don't see how you can be left wing and a Christian believing and holding true to the Word of God. If anything, I would consider myself 'religiously centered'. I believe that God holds us to a high standard politically and the vote in a way that would honor Him. Most people consider me to be very conservative. I guess I am for the most part. I pray for all presidents and leaders to be guided by God and to make wise decisions. I agree with most of what republicans believe, but sometimes the cheesiness of any politician will get to me. I don't want to go down a road of raking politicians over the coals because they are people just like you and me. Overall, I just want people to think about what corner you want to stand in. As for me, I'm want to be in God's.

For those of you that don't know, I have a bunny. We got her a couple months ago and she is just like a member of our family. Kami, our bunny, loves to hop around our apartment and kick up her heals. Her new favorite thing is hiding under the couch. She is even litter box trained. Hopefully we can get a better picture of her soon. Kami is a little camera shy, even though she will do anything for a carrot.

It is Friday! I love Fridays! For some reason, Friday is almost everyone's favorite day. Maybe it has to do with not having to face work for a whole two days. I have always felt bad for those that have to work on the weekends. They have to work when the rest of us get to play. This weekend, I am looking forward to relaxing and getting rid of whatever crud has settled itself into my lungs.

I know in most parts of the country, spring is about to sprout. But, here in Texas, we are about 90 degrees today and that feels like summer to me. I would love to spend the weekend outside sitting in the grass.....oh wait, the fire ants. Texans do not ever go into the grass because the Texas-sized fire ants.

Back to spring....the weather is wonderful. Jonathan even went swimming in our pool yesterday. Summer is on the way....

The Alamo

Looking into the bright sun on the Riverwalk

Mom and Dad

My parents visited us this weekend and we had a blast. We went to San Antonio Riverwalk and the Alamo. Then, on Monday, we went to Fredericksburg. It is a neat little German town that is known for the wild flowers and peaches. It is too early for peaches, but we went to Wild Seed Farm where the bluebonnets and poppies were blooming. It was beautiful! We also went to many of the little shops along Main Street. If you ever get a chance to visit the area, these would be a great places to go.
