Yup, you guessed it... Another Mavs game:)

Wow, that was a great game! We went to the Dallas Mavericks vs. Minnesota Timberwolves game tonight. The Mavs had a large lead but the Twolves crawled back into it in the 4th quarter. They actually came within 2 points in the final few seconds before one of our big players had a blocked shot and the Twolves had to foul us and we made our freethrows to win.

Josh really wanted to go to the game because one of my cousins really likes the Twolves and Josh wanted to buy a basketball and get it signed by the Twolve players so he could give it to Matt as a Christmas gift when we go back in December. He got 10 autographs on it which was really cool!!!

Lukes getting married!!!

Very nice rehearsal dinner tonight. Luke and all of the guys in the wedding are so much fun. I can tell Josh really misses getting to hang out with those guys. I guess it is just another reason we will have to move back to Iowa in the future. The food we had was great! I really miss the great food in Iowa! The beef in Iowa is SO much better than in Texas.

I better get to bed since we have to get up early to go to the Church.. long day tomorrow.

Thanksgiving at Josh's Parents

Only 1 day until the wedding, and we leave for the rehearsal dinner after lunch. We had a great meal at Josh's parents last night, the 2nd great meal this week. Sure beats the dining center food back in Texas. We will be staying in a hotel tonight with Ryan and Stephanie so that we don't have to drive to the rehearsal, drive back to Josh's parents, and then drive back for the wedding tomorrow. It will be fun to hang out with Ryan and Stephanie tonight and stay in a hotel:)

Thanksgiving Day!!!

It's Thanksgiving, and that means GREAT food! We had ham, turkey, mashed potatoes, and gravy! Not to mention all of the great snacks everyone always makes:)

Tonight we are leaving for Josh's parents house for the rest of the week since it is closer to where the wedding (that Josh is in) is going to be held.

Being Home Makes Me Miss Home

It seems every time Josh and I come back to Iowa we end up realizing how much we miss it. Don't get me wrong, we love Texas and wouldn't change our time there for anything, but there is nothing quite like Iowa.

Today we got to hang out with my Grandparents and my Uncle and Aunt. We had a lot of fun with them and it just made Josh and I miss being close to them.

We Made it!

Well, we made it to Iowa! It was a pretty long ride, but it went fast having 4 drivers. My parents left us a car at a family members along the way so when we got to Iowa Ryan could drop us off and we would have a car for the final 2 hours of the drive (since we were going seperate places in Iowa than Ryan and Stephanie). We arrived at 6am and passed out as soon as we walked in the house. We had an early morning today as my family wanted to hang out and catch up.

Tomorrow my uncle and grandparents are coming over which will be a lot of fun.

Driving Home!

I'm soooo excited! Josh and I are going to be driving back to Iowa tomorrow for Thanksgiving. We are going to be carpooling with our friends Ryan and Stephanie. The drive is about 13 hours so we will have a lot of time to catch up with Ryan and Stephanie, which will be a lot of fun. We are really excited about getting to go home and see family.

Josh will be in his friend Lukes wedding while we are at home, which will be a lot of fun as well.

Well, I'll write more about it when we get to Iowa:)

Josh loves the Dallas Mavericks

Well, Josh went to another Mavs game last night:) He loves the mavericks and a lot of the kids living in the building like the NBA too, but haven't ever gotten to go to a game before. So, Josh found some pretty cheap tickets and took them to their first game. I believe they played the Chicago Bulls who even I have heard of. I am not a huge sports fan but I enjoy going to the games from time to time as they are pretty exciting.
