Tonight's episode was sad, but I am super happy she didn't get rid of Jason. Her breakup with Jeremy was very sad though. Poor guy. He lives in Dallas-one of you single ladies should look him up! :) Ha ha.
The Bachelorette has really been our only consistent show this summer...although we have watched one hour of Wipeout. If you haven't watched Wipeout you should watch it tomorrow night (Tuesdays at 7 or 8...not sure). I don't think that this is a show we will watch weekly, but it is definitely good enough to watch every once in a while. Last week there were some hilarious spills.
Anyway, back to the Bachelorette...I cannot wait to see the interaction between DeAnna and Graham on the Men Tell All part of the show. The previews look good. I cannot express to you enough how much I want DeAnna to pick Jason. I think he is an awesome guy, and I love his little boy. They would be a cute family :) I know there has been much speculation about Jeremy, but I still like him, too. My only problem with him is that there doesn't seem to be much fun, laughing times with him. They are either serious or romantic. Jason has the fun factor. That is why he is my pick. GO JASON!

We went to Maguire's off of the Dallas North Tollway. Neither of us had ever been there, and we both thoroughly enjoyed it! We shared an excellent appetizer that was kind of like a tostada, but it was made of flat bread topped with cheese, pico de gallo, and really good grilled chicken. Casey even liked it and that's saying something! For our entree we both ordered the Cajun Chicken Penne Pasta that was also great!
At dinner Casey asked me what things I most liked about our marriage thus far. I said that I liked the fact that he got up with me in the mornings during student teaching and had breakfast with me before I left for school! I know that he didn't have to be at work until a good hour and a half after I did, so it meant a lot that he would get out of bed early to start his day with me. I also said I liked decorating our condo together, ie. hanging pictures, putting together furniture, etc. Casey said that he just liked living together everyday and being around each other (after having a long distance relationship it means a lot to be around each other)! He also said that he enjoyed our trip to Galveston--I would've said this as well, but I thought vacations were off limits for this question. After dinner Casey gave me a gift card to Massage Envy for a 90 minute massage! I am so stoked about that! Isn't he thoughtful?
On our way home we stopped at Blockbuster to rent a movie. We then headed over to Starbucks where I used a gift card (from graduation) to get a Green Tea Frappucino (yum!)--that delicious coffee drink is probably a big reason why I am still up at this hour when I know I have to get up early for church!
Anyway, here is a picture commemorating our 6 month anniversary celebration!
Thank you for a wonderful 6 months together ~ I love you!

They have never lit the chocolate on fire before so this was my first time to roast marshmallows over fondue!
I caught mine on fire-it tasted good! :)

Casey and I were at youth camp all week--it was awesome! The theme was "Addicted," and the kids loved it. When we got off of the bus, we handed them all bracelets that said, "What happens at camp, doesn't stay at camp." It is just to remind them to tell their friends about what happened at camp and not just let it be a memory, but a real change in their lives. Casey and I were absolutely exhausted, and the first thing we did when we got home was take a long and very needed nap! We went to Snuffer's afterwards for some good ole cheese fries. Since then, we've been just as busy as before! Saturday we had two weddings to attend, one of which, we were the videographers! This was the first time we have done this. Casey is the mastermind--he can do all of the cool editing. I am excited to see how it turns out! After the weddings we went out to eat with his parents, sister, brother-in-law, and their little boy Caleb! It is always fun to see him because he just gets cuter & more talkative every time! Before they left, I carried him out to the car, and he pointed up and said, "goodnight moon!" It was so cute. :)Sunday we went to church and then had our usual naptime afterward. Casey is always sleepy on Sundays because he gets up really early to set up! We asked a bunch of youth and college kids to play some volleyball last night and had a great turnout! It was a lot of fun! I actually did okay due to my crash course with Casey...he is determined to make me good enough to play with him. Ha ha.
Here are a few pics from camp and the weddings!
