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."

Another Fun Weekend and Live Music

This weekend we didn't have much planned so we were excited to have a nice relaxing couple of days off. Friday night we went to Hanks to see Cory Morrow play. Cory Morrow sang the song "Always & Forever" that Stephen and I had our first dance to at our wedding reception, so we had to go see him! Once we got to Hanks we found out that the band opening the show was Dean Seltzer (the band that played at my brother and Shelly's wedding). I guess it was just a good night to reminisce on family weddings. Dean Seltzer opened the show and did a great job. Then came Cory Morrow with another fantastic show! It was so much fun! Stephen and I had a great date night!

Saturday we relaxed and really enjoyed the day. We actually took some time to enjoy being at home. I noticed the leaves on our trees beginning to change. I just love the Fall when all the trees start changing. It was beautiful, so I had to capture it.

Saturday night we went out with Stephanie and Gene. We headed to San Miguels for some yummy Mexican food and then had an improptu stop at Delaney's Irish Pub where we got to see the 8 Tracks live in concert! hahaha These guys were a 70's cover band and were hilarious! Stephen and I actually felt young for once! It was great people watching. We laughed a lot and then came home for some more fun and games.

Sunday was another day of rest, errands and chores. We're not ready for another work week, but we had a fun weekend! =)

Family Time + Cowboys= A GREAT WEEKEND

Last weekend mom and a friend of hers came down to spend some time with us. Friday night we went to dinner at Cafe Malaga (delicious tapas place in downtown McKinney). After a great meal we headed to Hanks to see an old family friend perform in Brandon Jenkins Band. Jonathan has been a friend of ours since he was in pre-school and is now a great Bass guitarist in this excellent band. I highly recommend you pull them up on ITunes.

After a fun evening of music and dancing we went home and spent most of the day Saturday relaxing/recovering from the late night. We managed to get in a quick shopping trip with mom Saturday afternoon (always fun). Then we headed home to get dressed up and hand out candy to our trick-or-treaters Halloween night. We went out and hung with our neighbors for a while which was fun as well. Always fun to play a little dress up. Stephen was a jailbird and I was a little devil. We had fun!

Sunday we met up with Stephen's family and we all went to the Dallas Cowboys game. Cowboys vs. Seahawks in their inaugural season in the new stadium. It was our first Cowboys game to attend and we had great seats! Cowboys won which made it even that much more exciting! We had so much fun!

It was a great weekend with family, can't beat that!
