Week 3

January 15, 2011 - Today Jack spent all day at Black Belt Nationals in downtown Dallas. He competed yesterday and won third places in forms and weapons, and today he got to bow in and out at the Master's table. Wild.

January 16, 2011 - Today was completely low-key. Even the dogs were lazy. Jack and I spent the day watching the Food Network and wishing we had more food in the house. Neither of us even got dressed. It was awesome.

January 17, 2011 - Jack got another picture of the school build-out today. It's wild how fast everything is going up! His office, the bathrooms, and the storage room are all framed out and sheet-rocked. It's coming along very nicely!

January 18, 2011 - Today, after Jack got home from work, he told me he wanted to go to Starbucks. I was already in my pajamas, but I put on a coat over them and we went through the drive thru together with Maggie. After we got back, we had homemade meatball subs (which Jack LOVED) and worked on his taekwondo

January 19, 2011 - Today we had a video shoot with our Australian field pastor. I'm not going to lie, that was a fun accent to listen to.

January 20, 2011 - Today was yet another video shoot, but this time I was the model! Hand model, mostly. It was just for a product promo.

January 21, 2011 - Today was my off Friday, and Jack's dad came in to help us paint the cubbies that he built for the school. Today we primed them!

Week 2

January 8, 2011 - Tonight Jack and I went out to dinner at Rick's Steakhouse with our parents and Jack's Uncle Jack and Chrissy. It was such a fun evening! And it was so nice for Uncle Jack and Chrissy to take us out!!

January 9, 2011 - It snowed today! It was so beautiful, and Jack and I spent most of the day enjoying it outside the window from under our blankets! It was lovely. I did have to go for a walk though, so my parents and I took Maggie and Filbert out for a walk in the snow. Maggie got to the park and was DONE. She had ice and snow tangled in her fur and I had to carry her most of the way home. We thawed her out with a space heater when she got home and gave her a haircut later that night.

January 10, 2011 - I thought we'd have a snow day today after yesterday's "blizzard," but it was just a delayed opening. It was nice to sleep in though, and the drive to work was so strange and beautiful with all the snow!!

January 11, 2011 - I got me some boots! These are just a little (okay, a lot) out of my comfort zone, but they are pretty cute. They're 3.5" heels! YIKES!

January 12, 2011 - Yesterday, Jack got a brand spankin' new iPhone, complete with super amazing apps to organize his whole life! And yet, last night, when he was going to bed, he asked me for a pad of paper to write his to-do list on. A PAD OF PAPER! iPhone user FAIL.

January 13, 2011 - This school build-out is really getting started! I don't know what these big old round tubes are for, but I think they go in the ceiling. Woot!

January 14, 2011 - Today my high school friend Alan sent me a message on Facebook to see whether I wanted to go to a hockey game with him and his wife while they were in town. We had a great time at the Allen Americans game, and it was so nice to see him again!

Week 1

January 1, 2011 - Happy New Year! I can't think of anybody better to start it with. Also - this is year four of master bathroom remodeling (currently at a stand-still). Classy.

January 2, 2011 - This pretty much summed up our day. Jack and I barely even left our places on the recliner and the couch. It's was actually pretty awesome. We really needed the rest.

January 3, 2011 - Today Jack had to work but I didn't, so I spent another day being lazy on the computer and cleaning the house a little, but he was home for lunch and we got to visit a little bit then. Maggie is officially spoiled - we have been allowing her up on the couch when called lately.

January 4, 2011 - This is what I've been working on since the beginning of the year! I finally got my official Hornbuckle Designs digital scrapbooking store up and running, and it actually works! My brother Shane was actually my very first order - he bought templates to test it all out!

January 5, 2011 - This morning, Jack got up a little while after I did, but was so tired that he laid down on the bathroom floor. When he complained about being cold, I brought him a blanket and pillow, and he and Maggie spent the morning cuddling on the floor while I got ready. They were really cute, and I was pretty jealous I couldn't join them.

January 6, 2011 - The build-out has officially begun at the Murphy Taekwondo school! Today they put in plumbing, and the sheetrock will go in within a few days. We are so excited about this new location and the purchase of the school!

January 7, 2011 - Today was supposed to be my day off, but hey, what's that these days? We had a video recording at work, and I borrowed a whole bunch of tools and things from my dad and Jack to build a set for this particular video. It really did end up looking great - Chuck was so impressed with it that he sent Cynthia (his wife and our CEO) and the whole Special Events team into the studio after he was done so they could check it out too.
