Make New Friends but Keep the Old

So it's been about 3 months since we have lived here and I am finally meeting new people and making new friends.  Unfortunately every time I have the chance to go out with new people Jon has to work, but we are trying to plan something when he can go too!  
On Halloween I was invited to go to Jessica's (she works at Cook on the 4th floor and went to college with Amanda and Gina, two girls I work with) house for a party before going out downtown.  We had a lot of fun!  We played a few drinking games which had us laughing all night.  We learned how to do the "stinky leg" and saw a bunch of promiscuously dressed girls out on the town.  Overall we had a really good time!

This past Monday when I got off of work I went to eat breakfast with a few co-workers.  I had always heard them talking about breakfast at Esperanza's, but I always doubted how good mexican food would be at 7 in the morning.  We all decided to go, and I quickly found out that mexican food at 7 AM is pretty good after all.  They had a few strange things on the menu,
 including cow's head meat and tongue meat, but I stayed away from those! I ordered something I could not pronounce that had chorizo in it, which I was told was mexican sausage.  I assumed it was patty sausage crumbled, but it was actually somewhat like chili mixed in with my eggs.  It didn't sound or look that great, but I really enjoyed it!  The dish is apparently one of the best things on the menu because 90% of the table ordered it.  

This past weekend I went out with Sommer and Tiffany from work, and a few friends of Sommer's.  Before we went out, Tiffany and I went shopping at Northpark Mall in Dallas.  It was a mad house!  There were so many people there that it made shopping not so enjoyable.  I did find some jeans, which I desperately needed, and Tiffany finally found a shirt right before we left.  So we met out later at Bone Daddy's to eat dinner and then went out downtown.  We first started at the Library, which was fun, although it was very crowded.  We then made our way to Houston St Club (I think that was the name of it), where they have a camera at the bathroom waiting line and a huge TV in the bar for all to be entertained.  You would be surprised how many girls go into the guy's bathroom, alone usually, because the girl's take so long in the bathroom!  It was fun to get out of the house and meet some new people!  I had a really good time!

I'm very glad that I have accepted the invitations to go out with the new people I am meeting.  I have enjoyed getting to know them and meeting their friends.  I look forward to hanging out more often, especially when Jon can come and have a good time too!
