Father's Day


I am such a Daddy's Girl. He's always supported me and loved me unconditionally (no matter how bad I ever messed up). He's let me make my own decisions and helped me along with consequences, whether they be good or bad. I'm so lucky to have such a wonderful man in my life and I'm so thankful everyday that I get talk to him and text him and beat him in Words With With Friends ^_^

I love my Daddy!

Manske Love

During our trip to Texas, one of our first stops was Gil's Broiler in San Marcos. I used to go here all the time with my family when we would visit my Grandmother and it's still as wonderful as ever. If you're ever there...for the love of God...get a Manske Roll.

My parents use to come here in their college days.

The interior has changed a few times in the years we've been coming here, but the hanging rocks have always been there.

Old menu. Their hotdogs used to be too franks cut in half on a hamburger bun! So good.

So excited for Manske Rolls!

They have cheesy postcards from the 70's (I'm assuming) at the front so I got one to write a note home. Telling my family about my Gil's adventure and wishing them love from Deep in the Heart of Texas.

Tada! The Manske Roll! It's like a giant cinnamon roll just unapologetically slathered in butter and wonderful. You can cut it with the fork and it just melts in your mouth. The last bite of the center is like heaven.

Right after this we tootled down the road the Paper Bear...aka the best shop ever in the history of shops. I have tons of pictures that I'm having a hard time uploading right now, or I'd get it all in one post. But I guess Paper Bear deserves it's own story. The moral of the story is, go to Texas, go to Gil's and eat a Manske Roll. That is all.

All Terrain - Scout Transport

There's been lots of Star Wars Legos popping up at our place lately. Andy got me an AT-ST because he knew it was my favorite ^_^ I put it together and made sure it was commandeered by Chewie.

I love an AT-ST.

Sprinkles, like the AT-AT behind her, brings only destruction to our cause.

Things got a little silly with the Hoth set.

I love Pinterest

I forget how I found out about Pinterest. I wanna say it was a tweet from Joy Cho that got me hooked. But as soon as I got on there, I got lost and had to create my own account. It's a great way to share projects and products and just things that you love, and be able to link back to their source. I use it kind of selfishly...more of a giant bookmark to projects I want to do and shoes I want to buy, that I don't want to forget about. Check it:

I clearly need to find more geeky things and stuff to do with my garden. The board of mine that's seeing the most action lately is Our Wedding. It's being used as an inspiration board / idea dump for all the cool wedding stuff I see on the bajillion wedding blogs I follow ^_^

How great are those giant flowers? Ugh! So good. A couple of my favorite people on there are also twitter friends of mine, too and they pin the best stuff! Sherisa and I love all the same things. Her jewelry is so great! I want these really bad. And Melissa has a great blog that I've been following for a long time and finds such great things.

Anyway. The moral of the story is: use Pinterest and we can be friends and find awesome stuff on the interwebs. Also, their app for the iphone is pretty cool. You can snap pictures wherever and upload them right to your boards.

New Products and Case of the Growing To-Do List

So my phone straps finally came and this is my first charm! Tubcat is ready for action...and texting. I'll be setting aside some time this week to photograph the rest of my charms and add some new stud earrings the shop. Along with expanding the magnet selection, as those seem to be pretty popular right now. All of these things are keeping my Teux Deux list full! But I love being busy and creative, so it's fine with me ^_^ Here's a quick list of what's going on:
  1. Design sticker sheets
  2. List more magnets
  3. Email caterer for wedding
  4. Keep working on Save the Dates
  5. Print out photos of venue for designing the space
  6. Get orders ready to ship
  7. Do the dishes Ā» totally done!
  8. Make cell phone charms
  9. Photograph everything!
  10. Play Words With Friends and get shamelessly beaten
Oh! And repaint my nails. No topcoat this weekend meant chips first thing Monday morning. It'll be a busy week...we're heading to meet a friend for dinner tomorrow and hopefully stop by Ikea as well. So much fun! What's on everyone else's To-Do list this week?

So Andy and I took a trip to Texas in the beginning of May. It was the first time he'd really visited (not counting driving through on a road trip from Albuquerque to DC) and my first real vacation in a few years. I wanted to show him where I grew up and give him more of insight as to why I am the way that I am. I'm a full blooded Texan and I love my home state so hard! I even got a giant tattoo while we were there...but that's for another post ^_^

At the end of one of my favorite days there, we hiked up Mount Baldy in Woodcreek so I could show him the most gorgeous view of the Texas Hill Country. The most beautiful place on Earth, imo. We went up at sunset and were all by ourselves (after the German family that was in front of us on the way up had me take a picture haha) and it was just perfect.

On the way up. I use the term "hike" loosely since there were stairs.

Checkin' out the view...

The sun started to set behind the Mount Baldy's twin sister.

There were chalk rocks everywhere, so I drew a Pnut ^_^

Ok! So here's where it gets serious. We were sitting on the rocks and just watching the sun set over miles and miles of Hill Country, just taking it all in and being so glad that we were right there. And then Andy asks me to stand up. We were standing there and he told me how much he loved me and asked me to marry him! He said he didn't have the ring yet, but he took out the pen that he's always got in his pocket and drew a ring on my finger.

My first engagement ring! He kept a sharpie with him every day till my real ring came, just in case it washed off.

Our first picture as fiances!

And this was the view before we hiked back down.

It was such a wonderful day, full of so much fun and food and exploration (more stories and pictures to come) and it's just been typical to every day we spend together. I've never had so much fun before and I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with him. BTW, we're going to look at a potential venue on Sunday! So exciting!
