heading for the hills

Last week Nate and I evacuated from CC for the first time. It looked like Ike was headed strait for us so we packed up and headed to Austin to stay with Rachel for a few days. Fortunately, the storm took a sharp turn North and we didn't get any of the bad weather down here...I'm not even sure that it rained. We feel pretty lucky though. I just got an email from an acquaintance in the Houston area who's house didn't make it through the storm. Pretty sad.

The pups took the trip with us also. :) No way would we leave them to fend for themselves during the storm!! They LOVE Rachel. And even though they're glad to be home, I think they miss her...especially Bean. Someday we'll be closer. Nate and I love the Austin area. We visited the bakery Rachel's working at. They have some delicious food, and the desserts are pretty amazing. I took some pictures. Check out the rose cupcake things. Holy cow. The pictures are all from my new and AWESOME phone. I don't have a flash, so some of them are pretty dark. But they'll do.

This is where Rachel makes delicious cookies and such. Mmm.

Yeah. That's all frosting. And so pretty. 

Some cookies Rachel made. So cute! :) And yummy. I ate a ghost. Shh.

Mmm some tall cakes.

Nate and Rachel downtown.

Evacuation buddies.

The view from on top of a hill where some super nice apartments are.

These are them.

The driveway of the apartments. LOVE this area of town.

Some boats and a cute tiny cafe on lake Austin.

Our apt all boarded up. A lot of the city looks like this.

DACHSHUND PICS OF LAST WEEK (whops, didn't have internet in Austin)
Izzy and Bean taking a nap together. Well, they were asleep until I got off the couch.

Me and Izzy getting ready for some zzzzzz's.

Cutest dog ever.

club in the car, cont.

I know I already uploaded some pics from The One Kick Off party, but we just got the professional pictures back last week so I wanted to post some of them too. HUGE thank you to New Wave Photography (thanks Rob and Amanda!) for these pictures. If you're in the coastal bend and need a photographer check them out. Nicest people ever.

There are a couple of other pictures from last week. Nate painted our sunroom...and the dogs and I watched.. :) 

Yeah, the title of this one's pretty uncreative. Forgive me. I'm tired...

Me and Nate. Thanks Rob for the first decent pic of us in a long while. :)

The best looking design/sales/PR team in town! 

Yes. We arrived in a limo.  And it was awesome. This is the beautiful Karina's paparazzi shot.

Our fabulous boss, Monica, back from Europe in style.

I swear I really do have 2 legs...the other one is just still in limo ha.

"Club in the car" Catherine. She's pretty fantastic. Buy an ad from her. Do it. 

Havana Club provided some cigar guys. Love the white suits. 

All of us arriving at the party.

A delicious cake by Simply Elegant. Coconut frosting with pineapple filling. Mmmm.

Some beautiful centerpieces by the Blossom Shop. 

Nate painted our sunroom a lovely red color. And they put our fan up! Yay for cool air!

Bean babe. 

Izzy and her favorite bone.
