This ain't our first rodeo (August 2010)!
Here are some pictures from Jeff's second (and Amy's umpteenth) rodeo ... in this case, the small Bastrop fair and rodeo held in early August.

It's still spring, right?
We recently realized that we hadn't posted to our livejournal in quite awhile. This is most likely due to the ease with which one can share photos on facebook. We'd like to keep our livejournal "alive" though, so here are some fairly-recent pictures.

A Journey Through New Year's Eve 2009
We celebrated New Year's Eve at three different places in Austin: a Japanese restaurant called Mikado Ryotei, a pub called the Draughthouse, and a club called the Shangri-La that was having a "Soul Happening."

Since we haven't posted in approximately half a year, here are a couple of blurry pictures taken after we began decorating for Christmas ....

Happy Howlidays!Collapse )

We got MARRIED!!!
As most of our readers know, we got married on July 3rd. So far we have non-pro and semi-pro pictures back, but not the ones we paid the big bucks for. But our livejournal is prettymuch full of cobwebs or tumbleweeds or whatever right now, so I (Amy) decided to go ahead and put up a couple of pictures, so those who didn't attend/aren't facebook friends can at least see us in a couple of nice outfits. One or both of us may post other wedding pics at a later date.

In other news, most of you also know that we are moving to Bastrop soon (soon in this case means "in 4 days"). We are definitely looking forward to being closer to Austin and the people that we know there.

in case you haven't already seen this stuff, or want a refresherCollapse )

Just Checking in . . . .
I'm sure everybody already knows, but of course, our place in Galveston WASN'T okay (it was getting kind of annoying seeing that last entry when logging into livejournal). It burned down and we lost virtually everything (when we went back we were able to salvage a small bag of things from the garage and the very front of the house - a dustpan, a couple of books, some stuff from the fireplace mantle). We were lucky enough to get a new place on the island, though it is basically half the square feet for the same price, and right now, a 5th floor walk-up as the elevators aren't yet functioning. We have been living here without furniture (using an air mattress, sitting on the floor to watch TV, etc.) for a couple of weeks, but will be moving in at least some furniture this weekend with the help of movers. But a lot of Galvestonians are still in tents or hotels, so complaints should probably be kept to a minimum. We did upload a couple of pictures of our old place - these were first put up on Amy's myspace blog so you may have seen them there.

We are okay . . .
. . . not so sure about our place in Galveston, however.

We are staying with Amy's mom in Bastrop (just east of Austin) for the time being. We left early Thursday afternoon (after boarding up doors and windows) with our cats and dog, a few changes of clothes, Amy's laptop (which we're currently using at a coffee shop in Bastrop), and tupperware full of paella that Amy made for Jeff's birthday.

When it's declared relatively safe, we will be returning to the island to see what's happened to our townhouse. We dunno when we'll be going back to work, but are worried that we might be expected back before power goes back on since Amy works for the school district and Jeff works for the health district.

We'll keep you posted.

Playing catch-Up, more early summer 2008
Obviously we haven't been doing a good job of either posting from our backlog of pictures, or putting up new pictures as we take them. But as they say, "every little bit helps," so here are two pictures from early summer.

We're back . . . and now we have a dog!
Here are two pictures of our schipperke puppy, Potemkin. These pictures are a couple of weeks old, but they're better than nothing, right?

Here, boyCollapse )

First (possibly last) livejournal meme
Generally, these things don't work because we type so little in our entries, but this one was kind of interesting so I thought I'd share it.

2007 Holiday Redux
This year we didn't have any "traditional" holiday pictures that we really liked, so here are some recent pictures that are tangentially related to holidays.

House of Pies, the first hour of 2008
Sorry for the long absence from livejournal, things got crazy near the end of the semester as Amy was juggling school and jobs and both of us (well, mostly Jeff) were making preparations for our move to Galveston (which was December 15th).

We definitely have a backlog of pictures to post, and will try to get caught up soon, but for now, here are two pictures from yesterday, New Year's Eve. We celebrated in Houston, first we went to the Proletariat to hear local DJs and hip-hop, then we left right after midnight to beat the crowd at the House of Pies.

Day trip to Albany, 10/6/07
A couple of weeks ago, we paid a second visit to Albany, a small town about 30 minutes away from Abilene. Albany is tiny (population is less than 2,000), but it has a great art museum (The Old Jail Art Center), some good places to shop, and at least one good restaurant (The Ice House).

Incognito Pics from the Rangers-Athletics game, 9/8/07
For Jeff's birthday, we went to the ballpark in Arlington to see the Rangers play. Here are two pictures of us from that night, in which you can't really see our faces (though we didn't plan it that way).

Fort Worth: Visits and Re-visits (November 2003 and June 2007)
Recently we took a mini-vacation in Fort Worth, and took some pictures at the modern art museum there. When we got back, we compared them to the pictures we took during our first visit to the museum in November 2003.

Non-golf Myrtle Beach, May 22nd, 24th, and 26th
Here are some other (probably less amusing) pictures of the two of us from our Myrtle Beach trip. We promise, this is the end of the pictures from our vacation (unless you go to Amy's myspace, that is).
