Fun in Texas

Well, we have been in Texas for little over a month now and we're still loving it. We have been able to do SO many things here, it's been a lot of fun. Above is a picture of when we went to the Maverick's basketball game. The stadium, or rather outside of the stadium, is awesome. I am standing just in front of the entrance but what was cool was that there are 4 HUGE TV screens that move back and forth along both sides of the walls that I am standing in between; the place was really cool.

This picture above is of us, Keith, and Natasha. We were able to go down to Austin 2 weekends ago and stay with them. The pizza restaurant that we are at in this pic was SO good! The place was crazy cause it appeared to be like any other small pizza place but we waited an hour and 30 minutes to get in, but once we did it was well worth the wait (the wait which we spent scoping out the Reggae Fest and looking in various shops). Austin is beautiful, but to be honest I am glad we are in Dallas, I really love Dallas. Ben and I had really hoped to go to Austin when he was applying for jobs but I really believe we are where we are suppose to be and Dallas is perfect for us, not to mention sooo beautiful as well.

Well that's all for now. Hope all of you are doing well. We love and miss you all.

Hello from Texas!

Well, we're in Texas now and loving it. Ben is loving his work, something I am so grateful for, and I have been keeping busy exercising in our apartment complex gym, cleaning house, making dinners from the Lion House Cook Book, going to the temple, and apply for multiple jobs (I have an internet interview this evening for a job I would love, so keep your fingers crossed!). This Saturday evening we are going to the Maverick's game (compliments of Frito Lay), so that should be a lot of fun.

Thank you so much to all of those who cooked us dinners, breakfast, brought us farewell tokens, and took the time to come and say farewell. We are both so grateful for all of you and your friendship, we really miss all of you; there's nothing like going away that makes you grateful for the people in your life.

A HUGE thank you to my Dad and Mom who came down to help us move. There is no way we would have been able to get everything into that UHaul truck without my Dad's mad skills, and my Mom saved my bacon helping me clean the house so that we could get out of there when we did.

This is what we had to look forward to when we got it all off of the truck and into our apartment. A HUGE thanks to Sarah (my cousin) for coming to help us move in and also to the guys in our new ward who showed up just in time to help Ben carry all of the heavy stuff up to our 2nd floor apartment.

Our living room.

One of my favorite parts of our apartment, our walk in closet. Love it!

This is a cool museum in Dallas, we didn't go in but it looked cool from the outside! :)
