swing your partner

Something I've wanted to do since moving to Texas is go country dancing at an old Texas dance hall. Something TJ has wanted to avoid doing since moving to Texas is go country dancing at an old Texas dance hall.

This year for my birthday, TJ found a restored dance hall that's been open since the 1890's and got us tickets to go dancing. I can't wait. June 12th if anyone's interested...we'd love some company!

this is how 27 looks

my birthday came this week. i was thoroughly spoiled and it was fantastic!

How you can tell

The way you can tell for sure if your husband loves you? He lets you put pictures of rusty silverware up on the dining room wall, even though he thinks its ridiculous.

The Great Debaters

The Houston Young Lawyers Assocation was looking for volunteers to judge at the Urban Debate League. In a burst of public spirit, I signed myself (and TJ) up. It never ocurred to me that knowing anything about debate would be a prerequisite.

I showed up expecting to receive some training, but instead was giving a score sheet and a room number, and TJ and I were sent in opposite directions. When I found the room I realized that there was no one else coming - I was it. And as far as I could tell, the score sheet was written in another language.

Luckily my debaters were beginners too, and were too busy being nervous to notice I had no idea what was going on. My feedback was definitely lacking in the technicalities of it all, but overall I hope think the right person won!
