All Work...A Little Play

I haven't blogged in a while because work has been so incredibly crazy.  Attorneys shoot for 2000 billable hours in a given year...that's pretty much the "good" year mark.  That equates to roughly 167 hours per month.  I billed 250 hours in September, so I was incredibly busy.  As a result, everything else fell by the wayside.  This case I'm currently working on has been a great experience though, and I'm glad for that.  Things have finally slowed down, and I've been able to get some much needed rest and relaxation.

Even though I have been so crazy, Michael and I did manage to squeeze in a couple of Aggie football games.  We went down to College Station for the UAB game, which was a ton of fun.

We also went to the Arkansas game at the new Cowboy Stadium, aka "Jerry World."  We had a ton of fun tailgating before hand with Burgess,' although the game didn't turn out so well for the Ags.

I had lunch with an old friend from high school on Friday and it was great to catch up with her.  She's having a baby in April!!  So many of my girlfriends are preggers right now.  It is very exciting.

We have a busy week ahead, starting with U2 on Monday, Mary Poppins on Wednesday and a happy hour for some coworkers on Thursday.  Should be fun and I'm glad my schedule has eased up enough to give me some free time!

Dallas Dinner Club - Inaugural Dinner

So, I've decided to start a Blog, mainly because it seems like everyone is doing it, I enjoy reading them, and I think it will be a great way to record what's happening in our lives to look back on later...a virtual memory book.  I've never been good at journaling, but hopefully this will stick!

After a busy week at work and a physics test for Michael as part of his board exams, we were really looking forward to our first ever dinner club meeting on Thursday night.  Michael and I decided to get a group together to have dinner once a month and try new restaurants.  We gathered together a group consisting of close friends, colleagues, and friends of friends so we can all meet new people.  We have 14 members (7 couples) total, and its a great, fun group.  We met at Park on Henderson, and had a delicious meal and great conversation.  Mussels, mac n cheese, halibut and chicken friend steak, all with a comfy but upscale twist, were among the highlights.  Overall it was a great evening and just what we needed after this crazy week.

This weekend is looking pretty rainy...perfect for just hanging out and recharging.  We're planning on heading to friends' houses tonight and tomorrow, so it will be the perfect mix of activity and relaxation.  Yay for weekends with no work!
