Nuber Comes to Texas!

My little sister, Julie Ann Tymn-Harrison, came to visit us in Dallas this past week. We had such a blast! She is a go-go-goer, so we went! Enjoy this slide of the cool stuff we did!

PS-I miss my family!!!

OMG!!! Where have I been??

Ahhh life. It just doesn't slow down, does it? Here are a few things we've been doing....

Swimming EVERY DAY

Everything really IS bigger in Texas. We didn't just have a school carnival to end the year, we had a school Renassaince Festival. Hello! School functions of this magnitude here actually profit in the tens of thousands of dollars. Who'd a thunk it? Addy was a awarded a special honor for her entry in the Blanton Renfest writing competition. She got to be a member of the royal court, serving the Queen of Renfest as a Lady in Waiting. She was even knighted! Go Lady Addison!

Just over a month to go!!!'s true. I am an insatiable Harry Potter geek and I am totally counting the days until movie 6 comes out (July 15th for those of you wanting to mark your calendars!!!). John makes fun of me on a regular basis so I haven't yet told him that I've officially joined the fan club AND purchased tickets for the London premier. I'm so dressing up in my Gryffindor cape and I'll be flashing my hand whittled replica Harry Potter wand as well. I haven't decided whether or not to wear my radish earrings or lightening bolts...but I'm definitely going with the snitch necklace and trademark Harry Potter glasses. If I can get my hands on a realistic looking Firebolt, I'm definitley going to pack that, too.

Ok, not that big of a Harry Potter geek. But I am excited about the movie! I've loaded my playlist with tracks by this hilarious band called "Harry and the Potters" and I'm going to leave it up for awhile. You don't have to be a fan to enjoy the music cuz it's dang funny.
