halloween in july?

So, I've been using my ipod to take pictures now which proves a bit more difficult to upload to my blog. Get ready for an influx of posts.

grilling out poolside

Lauren and Austin, buffalo burgers, and a new summer flavor for Shiner- Ruby Redbird, what's not to love?!

I can taste you summer, you are SO close!!

gotta love her!

shrimp boil on the beach

I often forget how close Houston is to the beach, really should try to remember these things...

A group of us headed on down to Surfside (not too far from Galveston) for a day in the sun and water. The weather was absolutely perfect, we even got in the water. Later in the afternoon we had a shrimp boil, and what's a boil without some beer and sangria?!

We had an absolute blast!

lone star stampede

This is the second year that Lauren and I have run the Lone Star Stampede, put on in Houston by the Texas Exes. Last year was the first timed race I ever ran, which began a spark for more races (including another 5K, 10K, and half marathon!)

This year we beat our overall time by 4:09, so we were very pleased. It was also cool to see everyone in their UT gear!
