Texas Rangers Vs. Oakland A's

At least once a year Chad and I make an attempt to head out to Arlington to catch up on our good old Texas Rangers.  This year we've been fortunate enough to make it out there twice.  The first time being on the 4th of July and this time to watch them play the Oakland A's with my brother.  :)  Thank you Cara and your future hubs for providing the great tickets, we had a great time...too bad the Rangers didn't.  (insert sad face here :(

Texas Rangers vs. The Oakland A's

Four tickets:  Section 131, Row 39, Seats 9-12  :)

The walk up.. Isn't it PURDY?! :)

Directly to our right... Cowboys Stadium in all its glory. 

Catching my hubby making yet another funny face  :) 
I love my Goober-Head!

Awesome view from our AWESOME SEATS! :)

Awww.... So much love in the air! 

I think the Rangers were down and nearly out by this point...

So we decided to walk around... and caught the view from a different, equally awesome angle! 

Hey batter, batter, batter....

View of the stadium as we walked to our car parked out in BFE! :)

"Suerte" by Jason Mraz & Ximena Sarinana

I don't really know what made me look up this song again.. it's been a while since I've really heard it... but everytime I do, my heart swells up.  I don't think Chad and I could've picked a better song for our first dance at our wedding.  The mix of english and spanish...the words.. the meaning.. the fact that I just LOVE Jason Mraz.  It's a perfect fit and I'm so glad we found it in time for our wedding.  So here's to a beautiful song to commemorate a beautiful day, just over nine months ago.

Roadtrip to San Antonio - Munchkin Time :)

It doesn't take much convincing to get me to go just about anywhere to see Addie.  After realizing that she wouldn't be coming on the already scheduled Maldonado trip to Dallas at the end of August, I jumped at the chance to see her...even if it meant driving five hours down to San Antonio to meet up with the family.  While my brother met up with his friends to sort out their fantasy football stuff, Christi, Addie and I headed to do some shopping for the day.  :)  But before we headed out... lunch! 

My...what BIG EYES you have!

Addie, wanting me to take a picture of her menu.. :)

Taking a rest after a long and SUCCESSFUL day of shopping!

Showing me her Dora "bakapak"  :)

Fox - Good Day; Shrimp and Grits Cooking Demo

Here's to the the making of a bonafide STAR-  Today was round two of Chad's morning appearances on the news!  On July 27th, it was for Good Morning Texas.... this time it was on Fox's Good Day morning show and he couldn't have been more poised, more collected, or more NATURAL on tv.  It was as if he'd been doing cooking demo's all his life.  :)  He's such a natural on camera!  Now I just have to keep trying to convince him that The Next Food Network Star is his next step.  ;) Wish Good Morning Texas had a link to the demo he did on their morning show last week.  Boo... guess we'll just have to write up a nasty email about THAT!  ;)  Til then, happy viewing!
