I decided for my Sweet Tea Social I would recap my past week (so basically, it's just another Mobile Monday!) :)
Last week I was kinda lazy. After work I pretty much went home, worked out, then watched TV (mainly Rangers games). I had Pei Wei one night for dinner and this was my fortune. I don't really buy into fortune cookies, but we shall see if this one comes true. I'll keep you posted. :)
|I hope he's tall, good looking, and like baseball. :)|
I made up for doing nothing all week on Friday. This past weekend I drove to Lubbock for my nephew James' graduation from Texas Tech University. If you have never made the drive out to Lubbock, I'm not going to lie, it's a beating. But despite the long trip, I wasn't going to miss James' graduation!!
|365 miles one way from Dallas to Lubbock. Thank goodness he didn't go to school in El Paso (that's 655 miles from Dallas)!|
I broke up the 6 hour car trip up by making a stop in Abilene to see my brother and his family on Friday. My niece Rebecca had a baby boy
recently six months ago, and this was my first time to meet him!
|Aunt Rachel and JT. He wasn't sure what to think about seeing himself in my iPhone camera.|
|Me and my sister-in-law (JT's grandma)!|
|My brother Mark. Not sure why the men in my family don't like to smile in pictures!|
After you get onto Highway 84 to Lubbock, you don't see much. It's about two and a half hours of nothing but wind farms and a dead cow. I took a picture out the window (of the wind farms, not the dead cow).
|The best shot I could get out my car window|
|Picture stolen from Google. This is what a wind farm looks like up close. These farms went on for miles! For more info on them, click here. It's kinda interesting.|
|For all of those complaining two weeks ago it was "too cold" for May, thanks a lot! It's only going to get worse people!|
I got to Lubbock a little before 7 pm and spent time with my sisters and parents. We got up early Saturday to be at graduation by 9 am. Thankfully Texas Tech has multiple graduation ceremonies (divided by degrees) so we were only there two hours (it could have been a LOT longer). I'm so proud of my nephew James. He's going to start law school in the fall. Hopefully he will give his aunt a
family discount free advice if I need his services. :)
|Me and my nephew Jake (James' brother). He's graduating high school this year and plans to attend Texas Tech in the fall. I told him I'm flying to Lubbock for his graduation.|
|I'm so proud of my Red Raider!! Guns Up! Wreck 'em!|
|This lovely lady is marrying James. Just over a month until she is officially my niece!|
|James with his grandparents.|
|James was named after my dad's father. My dad said it meant a lot to him to hear his father's name called out.|
|My sister with her "baby boys". They get their height from their dad's side.|
|My sweet boys!|
|This sign at Tech made me laugh, I had to take a picture!|
I left Lubbock about noon on Saturday and made the drive back to Dallas. I had tickets to the Rangers game Saturday night (yes, I know, I'm crazy for driving 6 hours then going out). I was exhausted, BUT I went anyways (and I'm so glad I did!) :) Rangers won! My record is 8-2 when attending Rangers games this season. :)
|721.4 miles is how much I drove in a 24 hour time period going to and from Lubbock.|
|Me and Monica at our tenth game of the season!|
|We met up with beks!|
|Got to see my friend Eric for a bit!|
|It was Girls Night Out at the Ballpark!|
So yeah, it was a busy weekend. I'm still exhausted, BUT that's okay. So, how was your weekend?
