I realize I'm running about one holiday behind schedule, but here's my softball crew at our Halloween game. Yes, I am riding an ostrich. Enjoy!

#50: create photo book of trip to Ireland/London

Thank you, Oprah!

A friend sent me a code for a free photo book for all Oprah fans from Snapfish. While I ended up going way over the standard 20 pages, the $30 credit sure did come in handy! It was fun to look through all our pictures again and remember just how amazing that trip really was. I can't wait to get the book!

If you have a snapfish account, you can view the book here.

Now to make our China one!

Nice Catch--#39!

As my cousin pointed out to me today, the Thriller event definitely counts as going dancing with my husband! It wasn't exactly what I had in mind for that task, but I guess that's part of the beauty of our relationship: while it's not always what I expect, it's always fun and different!

We Voted (#88)

Because Alex's voter registration didn't kick in until after early voting had closed, we had to wait until the day of to cast our ballots in the election. We arrived at our polling place--the elementary school by our house--at 7 a.m. sharp, and after waiting in line about 30 minutes, signed in and dialed in our votes!

We watched all the debates, and all the Saturday Night Live skits, so we felt like we were well informed on the issues at hand. (I even researched the different propositions that were up for voting, only to realize in the booth that they were all Austin propositions and weren't on the ballot in Pflugerville. Oh well!)

I was so excited for Alex--from Little Communist to active participant in the Democratic process! Although now he feels like he's personally vested in the outcome and will be so mad if his guy doesn't win!

I hope you all took part. What a great day to be an American. :-)

Medical Bills...Done and Done! (#67)

It's true. Thanks to a sweet deal Alex worked out with his company, all of my medical bills are officially paid off! I can't believe it!! Just one more reason to add to the million why we love love love Alex's job.

Hope everyone had a happy Halloween!
