Birthday! :)

On to my birthday! It was absolutely amazing. It started off with breakfast and presents in bed. Thomas is SO good to me. Then he got a hot bath ready for me and told me to get ready for my day. So I get all ready and wonder whats going to be next and then there is a knock at the door annnnnd its my mom and siblings! I was so surprised I had no idea that they were coming over! My mom said we had to leave immediately. So along with all my sisters we went to get pedicures. It was so nice. Just what I needed. We then went back to the apartment to "go out to lunch" but when we got back the apartment was all decorated with streamers, balloons and a lunch with all my favorite foods were on the table. Then we had some cake that my sister homemade and decorated! It was perfect. We all hung out until my family had to go back home. Tom took me out to my favorite food for dinner.. Mexican! It was a great birthday to say the least. And Thomas spoiled me lots of course. Now I have to figure out how to make his birthday equally as amazing..its going to be pretty difficult.
Here is the cake chef Emily made-
The super cute table decorations( I love the movie Tangled)-
And my new favorite t-shirt from Emily-

All in all it was a great day! Thanks to Mom, Alex, Emily, Bethany, Kailey, Dad (for letting them come to Beaumont) and of course Thomas! Love you all.

Beginning of Summer

So..I've been REALLY bad about blogging and I have SO much time right now. It's pretty embarrassing. So I'm going to do some catch up today :) I'm going to start off at the beginning of summer with the visit of James (Tom's brother) and Lauren. It was a blast having them here even though it wasn't quite as exciting as it should have been. Tom was unfortunately really busy with try outs at work so we were stuck in the ever exciting Beaumont for 2 weeks. So, I've only lived in Beaumont since we got married (7 months) and I've been busy with school and work. I had not looked into anything fun to do so right before they got here I decided to search it and see if there was anything fun to do in Beaumont. Let me tell was a sad search..basically we had to choose between an energy museum and an oil museum. Or both if we were really daring. So that sums up Beaumont for those of you who don't know much about it. It's nothing exciting..but has everything we need. I'm not complaining..I do like it but it's no tourist destination. So I felt awful that they paid so much money to vacation in Beaumont,Texas. However, it turned out to be very nice. It was a very relaxed time. We did make it up to Austin for a weekend to hang out in the city and then over to Schlitterbahn. We picked an interesting weekend to go to Austin...It turned out to be a motorcycle/biker festival that weekend. So at night they closed down more streets than normal and motorcycles lined every street. All I will say is that it was a bit interesting walking down the streets of downtown Austin at 10 pm..But it was definitely an experience. Here's a picture of what it looked like!
Then to finish off their visit we were lucky enough to get a suite box at the new Dynamo Stadium for a game. It was so much fun and the stadium is SO nice! All of us before the game :)
It was so good to have James and Lauren here and I hope they had as much fun as we did having them here! Can't wait till our trip back to England in December!!
