Pack ’em up

6 Jun

And move ’em out!  It’s time to move to a brand new house!  err… apartment.

Every time I move, I get this song stuck in my head.  It is from my most favorite Strawberry Shortcake episode ever when I was little.  It’s the best.



We’re moving to New Braunfels!

Billy got an awesome new job in Austin!   He’s just straight crushing it at BigCommerce and is absolutely loving it.

Since the commute for Billy from San Antonio to Austin is pretty long every day, we are moving to middle ground so I can go south to San Antonio and he can go north to Austin.

New Braunfels is a really cute, super country town and holds the little historic village of Gruene.  You may remember a previous post where I talk about tubing and Gruene Hall.  Our new apartment will be less than a mile from Gruene so we will be spending most of our time in town and floating down the river!

The best part about our new apartment is that it has an extra bedroom… so bring on the visitors!

Doesn’t that look like fun?  And you will have your option of hanging out in Austin or San Antonio, since we will be in the middle of the two!

We’ll be ready for you in July!


More visitors!

14 Nov

Billy and I have been loving all the visitors lately!  First my parents, then my sister, then Billy’s parents and we even got a bonus to have lunch with my aunt and uncle who were in town for a work conference.

When Billy’s parents and brother came, we had a beautiful morning and rode bikes up and down the river.  The next day, it was cloudy and rainy but that did not stop Billy and Trevor from going tubing.  It was too cold and gross for me but they said they had a blast, especially since they were the ONLY people on the river!

While they did that, Billy’s parents and I ventured to Gruene, the cute little town I took my parents to when they came and visited.  We did a little wine tasting…

And browsed the fun country stores.  I even got a cowboy hat that I can wear to my Texas themed work Christmas party.

My Aunt Lori and Uncle Robert were in town this past weekend and we took them to the greatest fajita place known to man.  I know, bold statement, but this place is awesome.

Their slogan?

Yes, yes it is.

Who’s next to visit?!
