Let Ye Olde Merriment Begin

This Thanksgiving weekend, we made merriment at the Texas Renaissance Festival with DP2.

Yes, the nerds in costume were out in force. Let's just say this sign did not apply:

Sadly, most of the costumes we saw were not Renaissance per se. We saw these guys, for instance:

And there were lots of these guys.

The good news was that we got to do (and throw) lots of Renaissance-y things.

We even took in some real live (fake) jousting.

We were ye olde wiped out when we got home!

The Small Big Birthday

We planned a small birthday for Eddy this year since we are both working hard to finish up with work and school responsibilities before we head off to the wedding this weekend. So we had our quiet breakfast at home. I made Eddy some French toast and he made himself a coffee beverage.

and I gave him his small present--we're planning an fancy dinner out when we get back from St. Louis.

We planned a small dinner out that night and a drink at the Ginger Man to round out the day. But when we spotted a tandem bike for sale, the small quiet birthday got bigger. We headed out after work to take a look at the bike and we fell in love. We packed it into the car and hauled it home just in time to head back out to dinner just before they closed! Whew!

When we get back from St. Louis, we'll say goodbye to our much loved vintage Columbia tandem.

Angela and Bo's Wedding

But with the new bike, we are planning to take on the Houston --> Austin MS 150 with DP2 this spring!

Housewife Sauce

It's the weekend before our wedding! What should we do? Last minute arrangements? Nah, we don't really have any. Projects and crafts? We already did all of those. How about a trip to our favorite Asian grocery store to get some delicious delicacies for our short work week before we head out for the wedding!? Here are a few of our favorite finds.
