Quick Update

Just a quick Sunday post!

I watched the Oprah on Friday... the one about the dogs. It was so awful I'm not even going to talk about it. I can say that I was completely surprised that I ended up curled into a ball at the foot of the couch in loud, wrenching sobs. It was horrible. Oprah of course was doing the same thing. She cried through that entire show... I just cried at the really terrible part, but my eyes were swollen when I got up yesterday morning. It was something we all needed to see, but something I would rather have not seen.

The Houston shower was FABULOUS! That was yesterday... it was really really nice and big thanks to my boss Angela for hosting. We had this macaroni and cheese she got off Food Network- it was a Throwdown with Bobby Flay one- that had 2000 calories per serviing. YUM-O. We also had beef short ribs, chips and hot sauce, cream cheese dip with crackers, and big muffaletta sandwiches and a great white cake with whipped cream icing from HEB. I think they have the BEST cakes. I got to take the leftovers home. I had some cake for a snack yesterday when I got home and also for breakfast this morning. Not acting much like a bride, huh?!

Anyway, we got some really nice gifts. A lot of entertaining type stuff, a nice bagless vaccum, some great cookbooks (one for dogs!), a Texas A&M heirloom quilt which Conrad LOVES, bowls, zesters, and these polka dot mugs I had my heart set on and HAD TO HAVE!!! I was hoping and hoping I would get those and I did, with a coffee mug tree ... so those are now happily displayed!!! I also got this beautiful paisley bowl and matching platter... isn't this delicious?!

It was a really nice time and now we are less than three weeks away. We can't wait ... we're excited and happy and nervous.... and ready for it all to be over with. :)


Here are FABULOUS new mugs. Don't you just want to come over and have coffee with me?

Go check out for her post on the puppy mill show. Don't worry, it is not too sad - but she does post pictures of her reaction.

I LOVE the mugs. LOVE THEM. They are exactly like our entire china pattern except that ours is purple instead of being all different colors. We have similar taste!
