For the last few weeks I have meant to put the hummingbird feeders out. I’m not sure why but I just never got around to it. Then the other day I was sitting out on the back deck and a hummingbird fluttered in my face and squeaked at me. I am pretty sure it was […]

Happy Easter everyone! We don’t really do much for Easter around here. Actually we never even have Lily on Easter Sunday because she spends it with her grandparents. They take her to church and have a nice family party. This year we did dye eggs though. I am not a big fan of hard-boiled eggs […]

A few months ago I subscribed to the magazine Cooking Light. We love our home cooked meals and it is nice to get ideas from other places. The recipe for pork chops with fennel, orange and olive salad caught my eye.  This was my first time cooking with fennel. I had no idea that it smells […]


My dearest friend Angela was in town this weekend. We never fail to have a good time together. Usually we just chill out by the pool and hang out with friends. But this time we headed downtown with Nicole and did the CityScape Adventures Scavenger Hunt.  We didn’t come in first… or last place. But […]


My sister and her family escaped the cold of the Ann Arbor-ish Michigan area to spend the week with us here in San Antonio. I love having visitors and they are no exception. I love the sound of a busy house. Over the past week we spent a lot of time in the pool, hot […]

I have declared this year as the Summer of Strapless. Over the last few weeks I have gotten my first suntan of the season and I realized something. I am wearing a strapless wedding dress in the fall. STRAPLESS! This means that I have about six months to get rid of those tan lines on […]

Lily had her first volleyball game of the season with her new team. I am so glad that I bumped her up an age group. The difference is amazing.  We feel like we are watching a volleyball game instead of a jungleball game.  Like this:Like Loading…


Man I am horrible about updating lately. I guess I don’t really have all that much to say. Here are a few things that were on my mind this week. Have you ever looked at your weather app and wondered what the symbol meant? I have no idea what Thursday’s symbol is for. But then […]

We spent a few days in San Diego, CA for Lily’s spring break this year. It wasn’t very warm but it also wasn’t very cold. Here are some silly pictures that I took this week. We found this huge burger at Slater’s 50/50. And this snake warning sign in Point Loma at Cabrillo National Monument. […]

Our friends Colin and Devlin had a Seahawks themed birthday party at ThinAir Extreme Air Sports today.  This was my first time going to a place like this. It’s a cool place and it wears the kids out pretty quickly. Leslie had a few extra wristbands so we jumped off a few times. It’s a lot […]

We have had a tough winter here in San Antonio. It’s been way colder this year than any other year that I remember. I mean it was below freezing all day today. ALL DAY! Thankfully I noticed it yesterday. I went outside and covered all of our citrus babies in C9 Christmas lights. Then after […]


I know you’re probably tired of the squirrel talk but I have some breaking news. The entire time we have lived here we have only seen Fox Squirrels in our yard. But now over the last few days I have seen a different color squirrel. He’s pretty fast though so I haven’t been able to […]


Have you ever considered not drinking for one month? I did. And I did it. I spent the entire month of February without a drop of alcohol. I came up with the idea and JP played along. I did it mostly as an experiment just to see what it is like. I read a few […]

Last July we came up with an idea on how to stop the squirrels from eating out of the bird feeder. It took them a few weeks but they figured it out. Today I filled the feeder for the first time since last fall. The squirrels noticed right away but they haven’t quite figured out […]

Lily’s volleyball team The Fireballs had their last game of the season today.  A new season starts sometime toward the end of March and this time when I signed her up I bumped her up an age group. Like this:Like Loading…

I am so excited to tell you about what we did today. Lily and I went to the rodeo at the AT&T Center here in San Antonio. The rodeo around here is a really big deal. It goes on for over three weeks and each night after the rodeo there is a concert. Which night to […]
