Weekend Recap


So I just got home for having lunch at Panera with a friend and realized I had left our garage door slightly open (the actual garage door was shut, but the door to our apartment was open). And I immediately freaked. Hello- Texas has like, MASSIVE bugs. And cockroaches. HUGGEEEEEEE cockroaches. We actually saw one the second week we were here and I'm not exagerating, I seriously have had nightmares about it. It was literally 3 inches long at LEAST. And I just left our door open a crack- nooooooooo! What is in our house now??? Sorry I posted that photo, now y'all are going to have nightmares too. You'd think it wouldn't bother me after I brought back cockroaches from Panama in high school for my advanced bio bug collection, huh?

So this is a weekend recap and back on track. . . it was a GREAT weekend! Friday night I went to theMet Women's Holiday Dinner. It was at the Berry Center and was gorgeous with super good food.

Saturday, we woke up early and went garage sale-ing in the neighborhood we live in (Coles Crossing). We got some great deals- lots of toys for Brennan (we've hardly bought him any), a backpack carrier, food processor, serving tray, clothes for Brennan, etc. For dinner, we met friends and went to the Woodlands which is the nations #1 master planned community (master planned communities are big down here). We walked through the Market Street and went to Target because I forgot a bottle from Brennan. Sweet. Sunday, after church, I went with a friend to the Nutracker Market in downtown Houston. It's at the Reliant Center and is booth and booth of Christmas decor, boutiques selling clothing, homemade salsa, furniture- basically everything you can think of. It was awesome! Too bad I couldn't figure out how to work the GPS and we drove 25 minutes out of our way. At least I got to see where George H. W. lives!

Yep!! I guess they spray for the buys at our apartment complex (and most people get their houses sprayed), so it's usually not a problem. But hello, I am still worried!

Sounds like you're enjoying it there...except for the bugs:) I never got used to the roaches. We had them in our house maybe 5 times i 3 years...I screamed like a little girl every time as I ran around jumping up on furniture, spraying it to death with bug spray. Yuck!

I just want to clear this up. Chaeli would never have held a roach, the picture is from Google... Although I have seen them that big, we have never had one in our apartment, thank God. Chaeli would have called me home from work....

Thanks for showing that picture! I'll let you know if I have nightmares. :D

It sounds like you had a great weekend. I wish I would have known you were going to the Nutcracker Market. I wanted to go, but didn't have anyone to go with.
