Here's a little bit of what's been going on since I last met with you....
I went to an Aggie game. Yes, I can hear you all saying "WTH" out loud. My cousin Shari is an Aggie alumni and has season tickets to all the home games. She had three tickets available one weekend and invited my brother, Bella and I to join her. They had to talk me into it. What ultimately convinced me was there was food, drinks, family and football. Even if it was Aggie football, I couldn't argue with the food, drinks and family part of it. I did not go to school at the University of Texas but I am a Longhorn fan forever. Aggieland has a very different atmosphere and that's all I'm going to say. I also wore my longhorn bracelet that day. You can see it on my wrist below. I had my horns up!
This was the only piece of clothing I took with me...my BURGUNDY scarf! LOL!!
As I told my niece, brother and cousin. I don't have a problem with the color, its the logo you put on it that I turn my nose up to. Here is me and Toot at the game. We made it through halftime and then went back to the camp to tailgate and watch the Astros. Ok, everyone else finished watching the Aggies but this girl watched the Astros. Hahaha
The following Monday, the Port hosted its Annual Golf Tournament.
That's me, Nick and Lauren putting out sponsor signs at each hole.
The next day was Halloween!!
Here's my Day of the Dead Cat (that's what she called herself)
She was the cutest! Everyone LOVED her mask.
I watched the World Series and lost tons of sleep like every other Astros and Dodgers fan out there.
Of course the best part was watching the Astros bring home that championship!!
Veterans Day Bella and I went to the parade to see two of our favorite Veterans in their very first parade...my daddy and my brother. Lena's brother-in-law Thomas rode in the parade with Daddy and Tony as well. He served in the Air Force, while both Daddy and Tony served in the Navy.
Here's Daddy and Thomas....
Tony was at the end of the float....
Here are all three of our Veterans ....
There was a ceremony at the stadium after the parade so we walked over for that. It was amazing. The parade was amazing. I have never cried that much through a parade before. So proud of all our men and women. We all stood for the entire parade and cheered as everyone drove by us. It was awesome!!
I don't think I've mentioned that Christopher is taking a floral design class this year. This momma is reaping the benefits of it. He has done two "holiday" projects and I have been the lucky recipient.
Here was October's project...
That was a real pumpkin! It held up for so long.
Here is November's project. A turkey!! Isn't he adorable!!
I love that he is taking this class and also a little bit envious. For many years, my dream was to have my own flower shop. Love, love, love that he is doing this and that I get to enjoy his class projects.
Last but not least, its Thanksgiving week so I am working a couple days and then taking off the remaining week. We are celebrating at Daddy and Lena's house Thursday. I am making dressing and double-layer pumpkin pie, plus anything else I feel like making. I am going to slowly de-fall my house this week and get ready to put Christmas up. I do want to show you the turkey I finally broke down and purchased a couple weeks ago. I have been drooling over this guy since I first saw him way back in July when Hobby Lobby put all their fall decor out. Bella and I had to run in there for crafts for a project she was doing for school so I told myself if he was still there, I would get him. I lucked out because there were only two left. I love him. He fits right in.
So that's what I have been doing.
I have made progress on Christmas shopping but not enough. Hoping to change that this week.
Happy Turkey Leg Week to y'all!!
