What's been going on...

It has been a while since I have updated, so I am going to try to condense things as best I can.
Starting where I left off...
Jon's parents came in the last weekend in February to help celebrate his birthday (which was February 28th).  We had a great time! Friday night we went to eat dinner with his parents, his uncle Jeff and his wife Mandy and their daughter Maddie, and also his uncle Jimmy.  We spent the rest of the weekend with his parents and had so much fun.  On Monday I took Jon to eat at Texas de Brazil.  We could hardly walk out of the restaurant because we were so full.  I think Jon had a great 27th birthday!

The following weekend we went to "Texas Mardi Gras."  It was basically a texas country music festival in a huge warehouse.  We had fun, but it was very crowded!  We found some new bands we like, and of course Jon came home and downloaded some of their music!  One thing that was similar to Mardi Gras in Louisiana was the fact that girls were flashing left and right for beads.  It was worse than actual Mardi Gras in New Orleans! I was a little shocked and annoyed at the same time!  Sommer and Michael met us there to watch the Eli Young Band.

My granny turned 100 this year!  She is a Jehovah's Witness so she does not celebrate holidays, including birthdays, so we had a "family reunion" in order to celebrate the milestone.  It was great to see all of my family, especially my granny.  Happy 100th Birthday Granny!

Jon and I have become pretty good friends with a girl I work with, Adrianne, and her husband, Ruben.  They actually just got married on March 21st here in Fort Worth.  It was a beautiful ceremony and reception and Adrianne looked gorgeous.  I am so happy for them!

Jon and I went to our first pro-basketball game this month.  It was so much fun!  Jon's uncle set us up with a man he knows and we got some pretty awesome tickets to the Dallas Mavericks vs Miami Heat game!  It was a great game and the Mavs pulled off a win right at the end!
This was definitely shortened, but I am going to try to stay on top of updating more.  We are headed to New York in 2 days, so I will definitely be posting a blog about our trip!
