If only life was more exciting

There really isn't much going on in our life these days so I am stretching to find something to blog about that anyone would actually care to read.

A quick Favorites Friday:
My mom and one of her friends came to visit Brian and I last weekend. It was such a great time to see her. We spent lots of time shopping and eating. It was tax-free weekend so the malls and stores were packed. I figured mom would last maybe 10 minutes because not only does she hates crowds, but she isn't the biggest fan of shopping all together, but she was a total trooper! We made our way all the way around the Allen Premium outdoor Outlet Mall, which took us close to 3 hours!
We also went up to the North Texas State Fair and Rodeo in Denton. It was a small fair, but we had a good time wandering around. And I convinced everyone to stop at the vintage shops, which I loved but had to shop fast because no one else was enjoying it.

Happy Wedding Day Alexis and Dan!

Today our great friends Dan and Alexis got married. Unfortunately we were not able to be at the wedding since it was up in New Hampshire. We met Dan and Alexis when they moved from Boston down here to Dallas. They were in our same situation, Dan got a job here and Alexis moved with him for the adventure. Dan's company did work with Brian's old company and Brian offered to take them to dinner as we knew how they felt being new to the city.
Little did we know that it was going to turn into such a great friendship. Unfortunately about 2 months after we met them, Dan's company moved them to Chicago. This was more than a year ago, and Alexis and I have talked every week if not every day since then.
We got engaged 3 days apart and married 3 months apart so we were eachother's support systems through the planning process. We all came to the agreement that since we were all going through the wedding process and planning weddings in far-away towns, we would not attend eachother's weddings but plan a trip where we could spend a few days together shortly after.
Hopefully we can plan this trip soon because we really miss them and CAN'T wait to see them again.
They are that one couple that you only find once. We have more in common with them than any other couple we know and every time with them is a guaranteed good time. And you gotta love their Boston accents and their constant use of "wicked" and misproununciation of "idea" and "draw"
So congratulations Dan and Alexis. I know your day was beautiful and have fun on your honeymoon. The good times are just beginning. Can't wait to celebrate with you soon!

Maybe we will make it a bi-weekly or monthly post

So some how 2 weeks flew by and I realized I missed a Friday post (thank you for the reminder Jan!), or any post for that matter. I should probably update the blog more often, but we just haven't been doing anything that exciting lately. So here is a quick post for the time being.

My favorite things about the past 2 weeks are:
Booking our plane tickets to go up to Seattle for a weekend in September.
Brian getting a call we had been waiting on for quite a while now (more to come on that later).

I told you we aren't doing anything too exciting these days. More to come soon.
