So now that it is Spring time, I am taking every opportunity I can to be outside! I have been working out in the yard at least one day every weekend and boy do I have some wicked tan lines. Oh well, I just love being outside!! This weekend, the weather was perfect so we went to Kemah with Kellen and Megan and went for a stroll on the boardwalk and then out on the boat! It was wonderful but I may have had one too many bloody mary's because when we got home, I was sick! Anyways, I can't wait to go back to Kemah and ride some of the rides. I love that stuff. Below are some pics....

Earlier this week, Chris and I went to an Astros game! It was fun to get out during the week but it makes me so tired the next day. But who am I kidding, I'm always tired! 

Hmmm...what else to talk about? 

Oh! I think I finally have Chris talked in to buying our dining room set! It's taken me forever but I think I may have won him over. SO this prob sounds a little dumb but let me give you some background info on the situation.  When we moved into this house, his parents gave us all of this furniture/etc. to use until we got our own. Well....that translates into : Ashleigh hates all of this old furniture and wants it to be replaced as soon as possible! I would rather the dining room be empty than have what is in it now! Trust me...You would too! Maybe I'll post a pic of this ugly table later. So, how did I finally get Chris to break in? We were on the boat and I was telling Kellen and Megan about this horrific table when Kellen said, "Just get a new one Chris so you don't have to hear about it anymore and you can buy a boat!" Works for me! So our compromise is that he is allowed a boat after I get my dining room set!!!!! We'll see how soon this happens! But seriously, we have all this China and Crystal and it's all stored in a closet. That's no fun!

Well....I gotta get ready for the week but one last thought! I went to the grocery store this morning and saved $37.76 with coupons! I have gotten into the extreme coupon show and so I tried couponing  just to see if I could save enough to make it worth it and I did! Almost 40 bucks!!! The girl at the store said to me, "Go head, gurfriend". Now can I do the extreme couponing, NO! I would have to quit my job for that but I'm all for the $37.76 I saved! Whoop Whoop! :)

Around Houston

So since I'm not traveling back and forth to Mississippi near as much anymore, Chris and I have been able to enjoy Houston a little more and actually do things! Where do I begin?

Amy and Lane got married 2 weekends ago and I got to go back to MS! It was fun going back even though Chris had to stay in Houston :(. Seems like we always have to separate for weddings. Anyways, the wedding was beautiful and very sweet. Everything was so dainty and pretty and Amy was gorge!!!

Then it was back to Houston and back to work. The next weekend my Mom finally came to visit! It was so great having her here and see how we live. It is a totally different world here and it was fun to take Mom around to see it all. I think she was overwhelmed by all the highways and interstates. Houston is definitely a concrete jungle! Oh, did I mention that in between all this Chris has been making me patio furniture and I have been painting it? He made 2 adirondack chairs, a table, and a bench! He's getting so handy! Here are some pics of our patio...I'm still working on pillows for the chairs so it's not completely finished.

Today we went to the Houston Zoo. It was part of Chris' birthday present so we spent the day there! So much fun and I loved going downtown and exploring! Here are some pics from the Zoo expedition!

This little girls name is Tupelo!

All for now!!! Have a great week!
