Mota-Vational Quotes

  • "Life isn't about how to survive the storm but how to dance in the rain!"
  • "The happiest people don't always have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have."
  • "Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."

Time for Some Rest and Relaxation

As most of you know, Stephen and I are always on the go. This last weekend we did something that I'm not sure we've ever done before. We stayed home all weekend and watched 4 different movies! Let's just say before this last weekend, I'm not sure we've watched 4 movies all year! It was great! We were lazy and loved it! All four movies were fantastic. We did manage to get in our house and lawn work, so we weren't completely worthless, but what an amazing feeling to take some time for ourselves and each other to just relax!

It was a weekend of celebrations!

We started the weekend celebrating Stephen's dad's 65th birthday! We all ate dinner at Pasados and went back to their house for gifts and cake.

Saturday we met up with some friends to celebrate Z's 28th birthday. We went to dinner at Gloria's and then headed for Uptown Pub for some after dinner fun.

Good times with great people! Happy Birthday guys!

The Wait...

So yes, Stephen and I are some of the crazy people who decided to stand in line and wait for 3 hours to purchase the new I-Phones. I have to say, it was worth the wait! We love them and actually had a good time in line and met all kinds of characters. I would post the picture of the line that was wrapped around the entire building, but when I took it some loser decided that he would need royalties if it was posted anywhere. Better safe than sorry. And yes, he was serious. We got a good laugh out of it anyway.

Quick Visit

Since it's summer, lucky Shelly is off with the kiddos. For a fun summer getaway, they decided to take a trip to see nana last week. While they were with nana she decided to make a quick trip through Dallas last Wednesday to go to the Aquarium. Unfortunately I had to work, but I was able to meet them for dinner and a fun carriage ride after I got off. Even though it was a short visit, it was great seeing everyone. I miss you guys lot's!

4th of July 2008

We had a fabulous long weekend at the lakehouse with great friends this year for the 4th of July! Amanda, Candace, Greg, Matt, Christie, Steph, Gene, Steve and I all headed to PK Lake for some fun in the sun.

Time flies when you're having fun, but we managed to get in various card games, volleyball, washers, horseshoes, jet skiing, water skiing, wake boarding, anchoring down in Hell's Gate, floating by the dock, BBQing, fireworks and more fireworks throughout the weekend!

It was lot's of fun! We are so thankful to have such great friends and family to share our fun holiday weekend with!

I Hear Wedding Bells!

This past weekend we headed to San Antonio with Steph, Gene and mom Mota to see Stephen's cousin Clarissa get married to Brad Corbett. It was a beautiful wedding at Los Patios.

We got the chance to see a bunch of family that we hadn't seen in a while. This is mom Mota's side of the family. Brother Jerry with daughters Clarissa and Kristina and Sister Mel with daughter Pam and son Jeff.

It was great seeing everyone! Hope to see you all again soon!
