Tables and Chairs

Thursday, August 27, 2009

Tomorrow we are taking our first excursion out of San Antonio to the great neighboring city of AUSTIN where we will hopefully bring a new table into our little family. San Antonio seems to have everything except an Ikea... which is unfortunately an essential store for a newly married couple lacking on monetary funds. I guess anything would be an upgrade from the table we have been dining on, as seen below:

Anyway, it's going to be a fun day and we're pretty excited to explore more of the lone star state.

And as an addendum to our table happenings (which I'm sure is incredibly thrilling), Russ and I ate at a restaurant called "Flying Star" while we were in Albuquerque last weekend. It defines the "cutesy cafe" that every girl longs to go to and every admirable guy happily tags along. It was such a fun place and you got to read magazines while waiting for your food. I found this quote while browsing:

Nothing
great has been and
nothing great can be accomplished
without passion

- G.W.F. Hegel

don't worry.. we didn't have a table for the first 2 years of marriage. We either ate on our breakfast bar, on the ground or with tv trays!

And I can sympathize about the IKEA.. it wasn't open in UTAH when we got married.

Good luck though, these are such fun times...ENJOY THEM!

I love flying Star, I love that you married Russ, and most of all I love(d) being your roomate.
