Insert Clever Title Here

This past weekend was a good balance of activity and relaxation. Ally and I laid low Friday night with a Lover's Pizza and a DVD. We watched Club Dread which was good for a couple of laughs, but overall pretty lame. Super Troopers is definitely the better Broken Lizard movie. Brittany Daniel was there to make sure it wasn't a complete waste of time though.

Saturday we hit Burger House for a scrumptous lunch before taking Northpark by storm. The mission...weekend shoes and cute, expensive jeans! Al struck out on the shoes, but the jeans hunt was a total success! As she modeled them for me, the slightly light-in-the-loafers sales guy wanted to know what her husband thought. I looked around, but appearently he had stayed home. HA! So she bought the jeans and we booked it outta there before her husband caught us together. I got a shirt at Gap...just in case anyone cares. We shopped till we dropped...literally. We got home from the mall and collapsed. After a 2 hour coma we arose to the sound of my cell phone. It was my long, lost brother inviting us to dinner at the Iron Cactus downtown. We gladly obliged and headed that way. The food was pretty mediocre, the drinks were good, and the company was great. After dinner we strolled up to the 3rd floor outdoor bar for more drinks. The weather was perfect and there was definitely an interesting crowd which made for good people watching. Overall, I would recommend the Iron Cactus, not for the food but for the atmosphere. Ally's ameretto sours kicked in as we left and she giggled the whole way home in the car. She's so cute when she's toasted (especially in her new jeans...mmm mmm good).

Sunday was a typical Sunday. Went to work, went home, watched the Cowboys blow a game they should have won...you know, the usual. Al came over later and showed me all the new stuff she had bought on shopping trip number 2 with her newly-married sister. We played with the puppies and then made a late night trip to Club Bell for some tacos, nachos, enchiritos and other tasty bastardizations of authentic mexican food. That was pretty much the end of the weekend.

    duh, i meant end zone, not infield (a girlie slip). btw, do you and ally eat anything besides mexican? ;) i notice ever now and then you throw in a burger joint or something to prove you're caucasian, but mostly it's tacos and enchiladas, salsa and chips. i think it may have something to do with us being texans (virtually mexicans) with so many great mexican food places everywhere. anyway, i'm the exact same way. god bless tex mex.

    Nburritotown(nice nick btw) - They are a cross between a yorkie momma and a chihuahua daddy. They are the sweetest, cutest little critters you ever did see.

    Texas Gurl - Yeah I noticed the gurlie slip, but I was a nice guy and didn't say anything. :) And yes we do eat other things besides Mexican! I did mentioned we ate PIZZA! I would like to say, however, that I am as far from being Mexican as white boys come. God bless Tex-Mex food though.

    You like? It took me a while, but it definitely fits with my new home. BTW, our store idea: Tacos, Lawns, Gynecology y Mas is going to kick ass.
