you bring a sack lunch? it's going to be a long read (interpretation - this is a long blog)

So, it's been a while. I'm not going to lie - I know you've missed me.
To be honest - life has been awesome lately. This is my favorite time of the year.
You have Thanksgiving, cold weather, Christmas, fun times with family, giving gifts, etc.

I'll catch you up on what's been going on if you don't want to read this long blog.
Arlington, Cabellas, Mavs, Purse, Texas De Brazil, Cowboys, sleep, Oklahoma, family, observation of deer cleaining, food, sleep, food, food, food, football, football, football, snow, auction, and I'm spent.

You get the point.

So, Julie's bday weekend was a lot of fun. Cabella's was awesome as usual. I went with my father in law and we had a great time - though we got lost from each other for about 30 minutes.
I bought me some camo - yeehaw!
We had a lot of fun at the mavs game - though drunk people spewing beer on me was not the highlight - even if it was Justin Bobby - 2 first names - reminds me of Ricky Bobby
Sunday was great - my bride woke me up by jumping on the bed and yelling - guess what my parents got me?! She got a purse - it was too early for me to get excited about a purse but I'm now happy for her (primarily for the fact that there's just so much a man can handle when it comes to purse talk.)
After church we went to Texas De Brazil - amazing - last time I was there, Jon and I basically ate them out of business and I swore I wouldn't eat that much again this time - especially since Jon wasn't with us - and I was actually proud of myself....I ate way too much but could still breathe by when we walked out of there (unlike last time - needless to say, I'm gaining weight and my britches don't fit like they used too...what are you gonna do?)

After feeling miserable and very sleepy, Cody, Mike, Ken (Uncle in law), and myself trucked off to the Cowboys game. We had so much fun - it was actually Cody's first time at a pro football game so that was a lot of fun.

Driving home was great - Julie drove and I slept for a bit.

Thanksgiving was awesome. It's been a long time since I've seen her family and we had a great time. It snowed a whole heck of a lot. Wednesday night I watched as Julie's cousin and grandpa cleaned a deer - always enjoyable (hopefully I'll be cleaning a deer this weekend - right Mike and Barbara;)) We had a great meal for Thanksgiving followed by football and another lovely meal. Friday - food, football, Auction, and fondue night!! The auction is a cool deal - everyone buys random stuff and Julie's grandpa is the auctioneer - he's pretty awesome at it - hilarious!!
We each got 1,000 bucks....here's what I bought - a Gamma Alumni hoodie that Julie's mom made - 265 bucks, 5 packets of beef jerky - 150 bucks (julie ate 1 bag before the auction is over - she owes me like 40 bucks for that), tie downs - 300 bucks - and a 5 dollar sonic gift card for about 200 bucks. high rollin'
Champ was funny running in the snow - he absolutely loved it. Julie will post pics later but here's a preview - the snow froze to the fur on his feet like crazy bad and he basically looked like he was wearing fluffy white socks.

And that basically brings us to today.

some pics

So - about the gay prince thing. Julie didn't say specifically - Hey, I want you to be a gay prince. but, she did however give me a "cape thingy" that's velvety purple and the collar was furry white with black spots (looked like a Dalmatian) No lie. So, I in turn was a bad sport about it and turned it into a gay prince. Here is a scary pic of the tragic evening. It's pretty funny - hope no one is offended...:)

No worries, I actually had a shirt on - just thought this would be funny and help me get in the halloween spirit:)
