Here is a little preview until the real ones arrive!

So, our professional pictures are in the works, so I thought I'd post the only decent pictures captured on the family camera... the quality isn't good, but atleast you get the jist of what an beautiful day it was. Until the REAL ones arrive... here they are.

the drive to our new home...

The last few hours before arriving in Houston... What a LONG LONG DRIVE!!! It took us about 28 hours to drive here. I'm not really looking forward to the drive home to Cali in 3 months!

A few more shots of the riverwalk and the Alamo in downtown San Antonio...

THE ALAMO (In San Antonio) interesting story... apparently they don't like people with dogs, they threaghtened to have me put in jail if I didn't remove myself immediately from the premises. Guess we'll never be going back there!

Pictures Galore!!!

Here are just a few snapshots of some of the things we have been up to since arriving in houston... as soon as life slows down again for five minutes I will be sure to post pictures from the road trip here to Houston!

the entrance to our apartment complex...

A day in the life of Northstar... :) (Cinco De Mayo festivities to be exact)

AN AFTERNOON IN GALVESTON... cruisin, on a sunday afternoon. :)

A couple remnants from HURRICANE IKE... (you know... just half a pier missing with a random truck slammed in to the side, and the paneling on a house ripped away. Nothing big)

EVERYTHING is built on stilts now... (thanks to hurricane IKE)

The Gulf Coast... ugh! (I'm sorry, but NOTHING compares to southern california's beaches)

Just about the only two nice houses in Galveston...

Eww... fuzzy for a reason, we didn't want to get any closer 'cuz we thought we'd barf!!! I have NEVER in my life seen such disgusting people as we did yesterday in Galvseton!! too bad, the place had so much potential!!

Welp! Here is what we have been up to the past few weeks, I'll be sure to update the blog as often as time permits... just so everyone is clear, I went from working MAYBE 25 hours a week, to working 70 hours a week. Now do you understand why I have been TOO BUSY TO TALK!!!!! :) xoxxo love you all

Too busy to talk!!!

Hi everyone, just wanted to let you that we have safely arrived here in Houston. We've been here just about two weeks and in that time have battled a wicked rain storm/ mini hurricane, a beyond hectic first week of summer sales, and an even crazier week of life in general. :) All this aside, I'm happy to report that we are happy and busier then ever... give me another week or two and I should be back on the blogging band wagon with pictures and stories galore... until then, just know that Frank and I love you all and are thinking of you even though we are too busy to talk to you.
til then,
