5 Things We Love to Do as a Couple

For the fun of it, we thought we'd share 5 things we enjoy doing as a couple. These aren't necessarily in any order, neither are the exhaustive, but they make for a pretty good summary. Drum roll please . . . .

1. CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. We've been officially following the CSI: gang since Season Four, Episode 406 "Fur and Loathing." (Too much detail? maybe . . .) Whit had seen a few episodes prior to this one, but this is the first one we watched together and botta-bing botta-boom, we where hooked. We have since bought seasons 1 through 4 and are working towards collecting the entire series . . . kinda difficult, though, at $70 bucks a pop!

2. Movies. Nearly every weekend, we sit down to a rented movie. Ironically, we only rarely go to the theatre to see a film. It's not so much that we don't like going out to a movie, there's just something 'special' about watching a movie in the confines of our own hacienda.
Our favorite types of movies are romantic comedies, but the occasional action film satisfies us as well.

Whit's most recent favorite Romantic Comedy: The Holiday

Bryan's most recent favorite Romantic Comedy: Hitch

3. Friends. In our life, there's not much more that satisfies us than being home with each other. EVEN SO, we really love hanging out with our friends. There's something great about being with other couples . . . can't put our finger on it, but there's just something about the whole deal that is a blast! Friends are great!

4. COFFEE!!!!! We both love our nightly cup/s of coffee. Starbucks hardly suffices, so when it comes to indulging in a warming, choice cup of coffee, Dunkin' Donuts does the trick! As of now, of the 5 or so flavors Dunkin' Donuts offers, the Cinnamon Spice is where its at!

5. Church. We love our church. Travis Avenue Baptist Church has been our home church for the past 2+ years. We have been a part of a fantastic community of faith, heard excellent teaching and preaching, had opportunity to do ministry with kids from a local apartment complex.

These are a few things we enjoy doing week to week, hope you enjoyed . . .

Grace to You,


"Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God." Romans 5:2

A Fun Weekend In Review

We had such a busy weekend, but what a great weekend it was!

Friday night, Whit went out with some friends from Sunday School for dinner, movie, and dessert . . . mmmmmm!! Everybody needs to see "Bride Wars" and try out Simply Fondue in downtown Fort Worth in Sundance Square!

Friday afternoon, Bryan set out for a long weekend of Disciple Now. He was a Dnow leader of the 8th Grade boys . . . yeah, that's right, 8th grade boys . . . let's just say, no amount of Starbucks coffee could suffice for the amount of energy needed to keep up with them! In the end, he really felt like he connected with the guys and he and they had a great time!

Saturday, Whit went to lunch with her great friend Kayla (whose husband was also leading a group of guys at Dnow) and had a great time of catching up and what not. (P.S. During this time, Bryan was getting "The Beatdown" in dodgeball from Kayla's husband, Brian!! He throws a wicked-mean curving dodgeball!)

Sunday we both met back up together after being apart all weekend and enjoyed some R&R before heading back out "on the town" as we joined some friends in watching the AFC Championship game (wait, was there even a game then?) and played cards as well. Thanks Gentry's for opening your home up for a great time!!!

Monday, MLK day, we continued in our training for the Cowtown 5K . . . ouch, it only hurts a little . . . . and when we say a little, we're lying!!!!

This evening (Monday) we met Bryan's folks for a nice dinner at Abuelo's on their way in from Atlanta, GA. It was a great dinner and great to see his 'rents.

A New Blog

With all of what we fill our time with, we figured we'd just add another blog onto the end of the list. Come back in the coming days to see what we've got to share!
