Wow, this is great news for the city of Austin. Apple is like a mile from my apt, Google will be downtown and Dell has impacted Austin like Microsoft impacted Seattle.

I love living here. Now if we only had an ocean 🙂 Oh well.

Google signs lease in Austin.

Austin Film Festival is this weekend…And I just found out. DARN! How did I miss this? Anybody going?

My friends Ryan & Holly will be playing tonight at Oak Grove Abbey. Necole and I will heading down tonight. Feel free to join us.

Ryan & Holly’s music is raw, spiritual and thought-provoking. Not sure if Holly will have her art, but if so bring some cash because you will want to purchase some pieces. I wonder if they have a lay-away plan 🙂

Come hang tonight. It’s going to be great. Also, donations at the door.

My buddy Jonathon has started a new blog Church Planting Novice. Check it out and follow hos church planting journey. He’s a great writer/thinker and I’m looking forward to watching his church make an impact here in Austin.

The past few months have seemed like one big blur. It’s Friday night and it seems hard to imagine the week is gone.

Some thoughts:

  • Necole and I both picked up iPhone’s. Basically we pretty much got them for free. I sold my Blackberry tonight. Craigslist rocks.
  • We had a great time with Steven and Amy. Can’t wait to see them in Cape Town in November.
  • Necole heads off to Dallas tomorrow night.
  • Belle is getting huge. I love that pup.
  • I went to a “teddy bear parade” today for Kenzie.
  • ACL is one week from today.
  • I really need a productive week next week.
  • I love the folks at Vista. Such a great community.
  • We had a blast at “Stories From Africa” last night.

Now it’s time to chill out. Girls are in bed, Necole is with friends and I have HD TV. Woo Hoo!

Tonight we will be hosting an event called Stories From Africa. Click the link for details.

Steven & Amy will be sharing a bit of their experiences while in Africa the past two years. Looking forward to that.

Also, Kyle Lent will be performing after the conversation. You won’t want to miss him.

Props to Charles and Crestview for hosting the event. They have one of the best “church” coffee shops around.

If you live in Austin, feel free to come and hang out.

So the past few years have been brutal at Austin City Limits. Last year it was 108 degrees. The year before was the “dust-bowl.” So everyone has been hoping for a “cool’ ACL this year. Cool for Texas in Sept would be 92-93 ish. But not this year. Today it’s 85. Woo Hoo!

So…Here is the forecast according to Accuweather. Let’s hope they are right.

Next Thursday we will be hosting an event called Stories From Africa. Click the link for details.

Steven & Amy will be sharing a bit of their experiences while in Africa the past two years. Looking forward to that.

Can’t wait for this event.

My friends Steven & Amy will be hanging with us in Austin next week. They are missionaries (he may kill me for using that title) in Africa and they work with Servlife.

They are doing some great stuff in Sub-Sahara Africa. Anyhow, I’m trying to set up some meetings-it will be a great time to hear what God is doing in Africa and maybe find some practical ways that you and your church/ministry can help.

So if you have time to hang and grab some coffee/lunch-please let me know.

Last night we dropped off the girls at the in-laws and headed downtown to get some grub at Shady Grove. We had an unusually cool night. Which is rare in these parts this time of the year. So hanging outside was great. After Shady we headed to Spider House Patio Bar and Cafe. They had two DJ’s and the atmosphere was simply awesome. Lot’s of conversation, music, drinks and food.

I’ve got to hit the gym hard next month. My “healthy” eating has been flushed down the toilet the past few weeks. So many great places to grub-it’s ridiculous.

BTW-Football starts soon. WOO HOO!
