The 8th Wonder of the World!

Today's spontaneous photo...meaning I literally pulled into the center median (typically for emergencies only) to snap this picture, then immediately got back into the flow of lunch time traffic...is of Houston's Astrodome!

This spectacular structure is considered "The Eigth Wonder of the World", and was the first ballpark to have a roof over the playing field.

This facility used to be home to the Houston Oilers ("American" Football), and the Houston Astros (Baseball).

Since then, the Reliant Stadium (Home of the Houston Texans) and Minute Maid Park (Home of the Houston Astros) have been built.

Currently, the beloved Astrodome stands vacant, with it's future unknown. Recently, I received an email via the Greater Houston Preservation Alliance requesting help Saving Our Astrodome! Check it out!

*By the way, this Saturday the Houston Texans Cheerleaders are holding try-outs if anyone is interested! ;-)

Supporting Our Rockets!

Well, it has been quite a long time since I've uploaded any pictures...and I have missed it terribly! I can't promise that I will be able to post a picture everyday, but I will do my best to update regularly.

So much has happened since we've last seen you! Megan graduated from high school on June 6, 2008 and is going to school full-time at a local community college. She is getting her basics out of the way now, and will study Marine Biology. I graduated at UHCL with a Double Bachelor's of Business Administration in Management & Marketing on December 14, 2007. Now I am working on a state certification in Commercial Real Estate Appraisals. I've been with my company for almost four years and really enjoy it!

Also, I got engaged this past Christmas Eve and am soooo excited! The BIG DAY is May 30, 2009...so needless to say we have been crazy busy with all the planning! Lu and I have been together for 4 years this coming August 8th, and I can't wait for us to start the next chapter!

Last night, the
Houston Rockets played their last game in the regular season. We lost to the Dallas Mavericks, but are set to play Portland in Game 1, Round 1 of the Playoffs on Saturday, April 18th. I took this picture of Yao Ming playing Poker with my iPhone. The Rockets held a party this past December at Toyota Center for Season Ticket Holders. (I only wish we had Season Tickets! One day...) Anyway, we love our Rockets here in Houston and will be cheering them on through the Playoffs!

Thanks for stopping by as always! Feels great to be back!
