Now, all that in mind, yesterday I went to Luke's Locker to find my first pair of nice running shoes. I'm sort of getting into this running thing, and so I decided I needed a good pair of shoes and to have someone check out how my foot looks when I run (and not to mention the current shoes are giving me some massive shin splints). I get my foot measured and he watches me walk. Now comes the awkward moment (more for him, than me) but he (he being the sales guy) leans in and whispers in my ear "I think you need a size 12"...then looks around in case anyone overheard him tell me that I need that big of a size. I calmly smile at him and nonchalantly state "It's okay, I know I have big feet, I've come to terms with it" to which he graciously and awkwardly smiles back and says "ok, I'll go see if we have any size twelves". He brought out...drum roll please....4 boxes of shoes (the entire collection of size 12 woman running shoes in their inventory). He apologized for this fact and I told him it was okay, atleast he had 4. Luckily a pair of asics fit perfectly and helped my bad arches. Anyways, the point of the story is - I'm okay with my shoe size, but I am not okay that stores/designers refuse to carry size 11s.

(That's what I call the copy service man who delivers Kolaches to us on random days to lure us to his copy business, its a tight market out there for copy services, Lawyers produce a lot of documents). It's always a surprise when you make your random appearances. Take for example today, all I had to eat for breakfast this morning (which I generally eat at my desk because I always run behind in the morning) was a plastic cup of Raisin Bran Crunch (the normal choice) that I bought from Rumi downstairs (Rumi runs the little convenience store in my building, he slips me free things most days - like a biscotti this morning). But lo and behold, you appeared, with the most delicious, buttery kolaches known to man. I'm not sure where you buy these delicious creations, but they taste wonderful in my mouth. So thank you Mr. Kolache Fairy for the tasty treats you randomly bring to my law firm's breakroom. Maybe one of these days I'll send over some documents for you to copy for me!

I went to see Mary Poppins with my sis, Erin, and Alisa. Before the musical we had a tasty dinner at Sambuca! The musical was great. Very entertaining. Then I met up with Patrick at his firm party, and we had a late night meal at 59 diner.
On Saturday night, we had our halloween party! It was a success. So much fun to get dressed up as a 50s glam Housewife with Alisa. It was a late night filled with dance parties and lots of laughter. Can't wait till next years party!! Posted below are some pics from the night.
With our rhinestone cowgirl.
My co-worker Justin went as "The Most Interesting Man in the World"
Being a good housewife.
The sister and I! (we had a fog machine, courtesy of a random purchase by the boyfriend)

Us on the riverwalk (the sun is apparently in his eyes).
At our "anniversary" dinner at a yummy italian food place on the Riverwalk. It was a perfect night!
We arrived on Friday night, and went to a wine and champagne bar. The next day we relaxed and then had lunch at a mexican food place on the riverwalk. Then we went shopping and ended up heading to the San Marcos outlets where he bought me my anniversary present (a new purse/wallet). We went to dinner at this italian food place and we were able to sit on the patio and people watch and enjoy good conversation. Afterwards, we went to this pub called "Dirty Nelly's". It was an irish pub with a piano singer and peanut shells on the floor. It was awesome. Sunday we picked up some breakfast tacos and headed come. I had a wonderful trip and it was fun getting to spend the whole weekend together!
