Tonight is my last night in Texas for awhile. I have had such a good time here so I am a little bit sad to leave, but I am really looking forward to being with Ed again. Skype is great but nothing beats being with someone in person. So, here's a look back at my past few weeks:
I love cupcakes so much that mom and I decided to make a batch....then I was allowed to attempt to decorate them. Found out it's more difficult than it looks haha
|ugliest cupcakes ever. They tasted good though|
I met up with Jennifer, my friend from middle school, to have dinner...Nothings really changed between us except that we are older, married and maybe wiser :)
Scout went to the vet at Shepherd AFB to have his traveling paperwork filled out. My parents were expecting to witness the 'tan terror' that Ed and I know in the car but apparently he wanted to impress his 'grandparents'
Again, the huge zucchini...
I went to see my friend Spring play her recital...She was amazing!
Spring's sister Autumn--One of my best friends. She too had to pose with the baby-sized zucch.

I finally had a ride on the 'secret' motorcycle that my parents tried to hide from Ed and I (yes, they never told us that they had bought a motorcycle...they owned it for months before my grandma accidently mentioned that she had been on it over the phone)
Tonight, my parents and I went to the State Fair of Texas. I thought that we went a lot when I was younger but I guess I was remembering stock shows and other livestock/fried food events I attended growing up in this area. I suppose we never went because it is so expensive. $16 dollars a person adds up quickly. Thankfully, we found out that on Tuesdays, an empty Dr. Pepper can will get you a $4 ticket. We all had a Dr. Pepper before heading in
I felt bad for this Longhorn. His horns were about as wide as the pen
Mom and I waiting for the 'amazing doberman' show. I wouldn't say it was amazing but it was pretty cool. Alot of dogs hopping on their back legs and hurdle-jumping dobermans.
A pinwheel park.
Mom and I on the ferris wheel

We found the fried bubblegum too late. This is the hot item at the TX state fair this year...
Well, I worked on one other project the entire time I was here--I refinished (with the help of both my parents) a chair and a bench that sit out in my parents yard. They are not finished yet but almost! I guess I will have to put a picture up later
And that about covers it! Next time I write, I will be writing from my own computer, in my own (rented) house! Until then, farvel!
