Bulls, grapes, and basketball

Can you believe it….3 blog posts in a row!  I’m on a roll!  But, I should stop before I jinx myself.

So, in the last post I mentioned how behind I am in our October and Halloween pictures.  Well, don’t worry, I’m here to post those today.

First, {d&k} went to a Mavs game last weekend and had a great time.  I’ve never been to an NBA game before and it was a lot of fun!  The arena was huge and very nice.  It was a pre-season game so it wasn’t very busy so we were able to wander around without the craziness of a large crowd.  And, I sort of wish we wouldn’t have eaten dinner before.  There was so much good food there!  Oh well, next time.


Next up, Halloween!
So, in Texas, there are no specified times for trick-or-treating. That is weird to us because in Ohio, there are designated times per city and sometimes even neighborhood. For example, trick-or-treating might be held from 6:30-8 or 7-8:30. Here, nothing. It’s just a free for all. I was a little worried that 1, we would run out of candy early since our neighborhood is centered around an elementary school and the majority of kids that go there live in the neighborhood and 2, since there were no designated times I was worried we’d be handing out candy all night.

The trick-or-treaters started coming to the house around 7 and didn’t stop (well, we stopped because we were out of candy) at 9:30! Some of the kids were so tired. The parents were literally dragging them from house to house. That’s too late for those little ones to be out trick-or-treating. I think the parents just wanted more candy.

Despite that, we had a great Halloween. We had friends over for dinner and they helped pass out candy. It was beautiful out, around 80, so we sat on the front porch eating our dessert and passing out candy. While we were eating dinner, we were in the dining room and we’d get up to pass out candy when a kid knocked on the door. There were a lot of kids dressed as werewolves this Halloween and 2 in particular were very scary. Our front door has a window at the top that just happened to be the perfect height for these werewolf heads. We heard the knock and went to answer the door and as soon as we turned the corner all four of us stopped because there was a very frightening werewolf staring at us through the window! Haha. This happened again later that night when a kid was wearing a Scream mask. Haha.

We also dressed the pups up for a little bit. Mostly just to get a laugh and a few pictures.

Elvis is a bull, complete with bull rider on his back that moves when he runs! Hilarious! And poor, grumpy, old Oskar is a bunch of grapes. Doesn’t he look adorable?! I love that these guys don’t mind being dressed up to humor their mom. I’m a great parent like that!


I hope you had a great Halloween and a fantastic October.  Now, let’s see what kind of adventures {d&k} can get themselves into this November!

Enjoy your day,


A little late

Hey there!  So, I’m a little late for posting our Halloween and end of October adventures, but better late than never.  So, here you go!

We took a little trip to the Arboretum last weekend with some friends to see the Chihuly glass exhibit.  And, to our surprise, they had a pumpkin exhibit too.  Bonus!  Here’s what we saw:

The Arboretum was beautiful! Since we had never been there, I didn’t realize what part of town it was in. I had no idea that it overlooked one of our favorite places, White Rock Lake. We will definitely be going back there. And, I just heard that they decorate for Christmas. Eep! Looks like a trip back will be sooner than we thought.

I have more to share with you about our Halloween and other adventures, so stay tuned! Thanks for stopping by!

Enjoy your day,

What You Missed

Hello friends!

I have a treat for you….I actually took a lot of pictures over the weekend.  Aren’t you proud?!  And happy?!  Of course you are.

Well, let’s not delay.  Here you go….

We went to the Fort Worth Music Fest on Friday night. We had a great time, even though it was raining! And, we got to see quite a few bands and really liked 2 of them. Check out Sons of Fathers and The Wheeler Brothers. You’re welcome.

There were food trucks everywhere! I love food trucks! And, these had fantastic food choices. But, I’m not good at eating while standing up and holding an umbrella (and Princess k with his paw in a cast can’t hold anything) so we decided not to get any food. They also had an ice cream food truck AND a 7-Eleven Slurpie truck! Heaven. Again, I couldn’t balance everything, so no Slurpie for me. Next time.

This was take 435. K kept making goofy faces. Way to go, k. I think he does this to me on purpose.

{d&k} were out running errands and stumbled upon these gems. K’s head was too big for his headband, haha. People were staring. It was awesome. If you can’t stop in the middle of the store, throw on awesome Halloween ears, and pose for a photo, we can.not be friends.

We also found Halloween costumes for the cats. Now, we do not dress them up. Normally. The dogs, yes. Cats, no. Until now. And, may I add, that k was okay with it!

I though Charlie should have the black and white bow tie because he’s already wearing a tuxedo. Then, k chimed in with, “Yea, and the blue tie will look great with Sebastian’s gray fur suit.” Wow. K is now a cat stylist. Bring your kitties over and k will send them home with a fabulous new outfit.

We also had to go to Target. Had.to. Damn you, Target and your cute items.

AND…guess what time it is?! CANDY CORN time!

Damn you, Target and your delicious candy corn, in many different shapes, sizes, and flavors. I just had to get them all.


It definitely felt like we did a lot more over the weekend, but the pictures don’t show that.  Hah.  I guess I didn’t take pictures of me doing laundry, walking the pups, cooking, and all those other “fun” things.  You’re welcome for that!


Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your day,
