Busy Bee

For someone who doesn't have a job this summer, I sure have been a busy little bee!
I've been trying to write more than one post a week, but it's tough...
I've been driving back and forth between Austin and College Station for 3 weeks now and next weekend will be the fourth one straight.

It started out with a trip to College Station to go to Zach's cousin's wedding and to see his other cousin that moved back down from Georgia.
His cousin Dustin married sweet little miss Ashley, whom he's been with for several years.
The ceremony/reception took place at the beautiful 7F Lodge which is hidden among live oaks and yaupon thickets.
It's gorgeous - especially at sunset!
I just love the little chapel there.
I took tons of pictures of it. Just a warning!

The next weekend I drove back down to CS to spend some time with my dad and work on my car again, which you can read about here.
I also had to get an inspection sticker - which was funny because the guys who did the inspection, didn't check ANYTHING on my car.
They literally drove it, wrote down some numbers, took my money and I was outta there!
Quickest inspection I've ever had!
This last weekend, I drove down again to do some more preventative maintenance on my Tiburon and hang out some more with my dad and sister.

We spent all day Saturday watching Breaking Bad. Like, literally ALL DAY.
We watched back-to-back-to-back episodes and finished the entire first season.
It was nice to take a day off from doing stuff to just relax on the couch and watch a new show.
Well, new show to us {my sister has seen most of the episodes, but my dad and I are catching up}.
Don't you just love watching a bunch of episodes in a row?
It sure does beat having to wait a whole week to see a new one!
Love it! :)

Sunday, me and dad got back on the grind and spent the entire day finishing up the port matching.
We worked all day until after 9pm.
Uhhhhh, it was so exhausting.
The heat literally takes all the energy out of you!
We were pooped, but no matter how tired, there's always just enough energy to watch the latest episode of True Blood!

Monday, my dad got rained out at work,
so he drove back to CS and we did some more work on my car.
My fuel tank sensor is malfunctioning for some reason, so we're trying to figure out why.
It could be a ground wire, or the sensor just crapped {I just hit 100,000 miles so I'm thinking it probably just crapped}.
Hopefully we'll get it figured out this coming weekend!

Tuesday, my sister treated me to a movie!
We went to see The Dark Knight Rises.

Ah, I love that movie!
Christian Bale is such a great Batman and I loved Anne Hathaway as Catwoman too!
And of course Joseph Gordon-Levitt rocked my socks off.
He doesn't have a major role in the movie, but he's such a great actor... I love everything he's in!
Especially Inception with Leonardo DiCaprio.
If you haven't seen either movie... you need to get out from under that rock you've been livin' in and see them now, crazy!
Like, right now!
Sorry I called you crazy.
But trust me.
You will not be disappointed. I pinky promise. :)

So now, I'm back in Austin and caught up on the latest episodes of RHOC, NJ, and NY!
Can you tell I love my shows?!
I know, TV turns your brain into mush.
But don't worry, I read lots and I'm getting an edumuhkashon. I promise!
Don't judge me and my guilty pleasures!

Tonight, I'm enjoying some of the left over candy from the movies.
We snuck in sodas and candy.
$4 for a coke and $8 for sweets at the movies theater?
Psssssh, that's crazy talk!
So I'm a rule-breaker, what of it?
Paying that much for what should cost under $5... well that's just bonkers and I ain't doin' it!
Pigs will fly before that ever happens!
Do you guys ever sneak stuff in?
I won't snitch on ya. :)

I'm also thinking about the upcoming weekend.
I've got a baby shower to attend, more car stuff to work on, and hopefully some swimming to do. :)
And lot's of blogging!
Hope y'all have a great week/weekend.
I know I will.

Goodnight, friends!
