We have had a pretty random week. Because of the explosion in the attic JP stayed home instead of flying to Portland. We did a lot of work with that… sorry no pictures. But here are a few of the pictures that I pulled off of my phone. When JP went to buy fans to […]

It was my birthday yesterday and my wish was to go to the beach. So yesterday morning we packed up the truck. The hardest decision I had to make was what sunglasses to wear. Then we hit the highway and headed to the Gulf of Mexico. Once we hit Corpus Christi we dropped by Justin […]

This morning Lily and I met a few friends at Six Flag Fiesta Texas here in San Antonio. We haven’t been there in a few years so Lily was super excited. We rode a few roller coasters but it was 100°+ day so we headed over to White Water Bay which is the water park […]

Today after dinner JP, Lily and I went for a swim. Sometimes pictures don’t turn out like you want them to. For example look at this one. My phone wanted to be in the picture. Or this one… the lighting isn’t quite right. Then I am not sure why JP keeps putting up with us […]

We have lots of insects in our backyard but I think my favorite are the blue dragonflies. Check out this dude that we saved from drowning in the pool. Here are some fun facts that I found about Dragonflies. 1 ) Dragonflies were some of the first winged insects to evolve, some 300 million years […]

Today is our un-anniversary. Is that even a word? Well it is now. I am obviously not married to Bryan anymore but I will still always remember our anniversary… umm I mean our un-anniversary. Today date is also JP’s un-anniversary with “she who shall not be named”. Is this just coincidence or a sign? Sometimes […]

I am so glad to be back in the Texas sunshine. And to be able to swim outside even when it is getting dark. I am totally fine with the blazing heat of San Antonio.

This morning Lily and I woke up and went down to the hotel restaurant for breakfast. Lily loves pancakes. Luckily low tide was around 9:30 AM so we were able to look for more sea creatures. And the sun was finally coming out so it was nice and warm. We found lots of crab both […]

This morning Lily and I slept in a little bit and then checked out of our hotel and hit the road. Our first stop was Forks, WA because Lily is a big fan of the Twilight movies. While most of the movies were not actually filmed there that is where they are said to live. […]

This morning Lily and I woke up while Stephanie was making us breakfast. I am not sure if I have ever told you this before but Stephanie is a woman of many talents and cooking is definitely one of them. After breakfast we played beauty shop with Stephanie’s waxing kit. Then Lily and I hit […]

This morning Lily and I woke up early and headed up to Everett, WA to spend some time with my friend Shauna and her family. I feel like I have known Shauna forever and I see her periodically (you can find her in earlier posts if you search her name) but I haven’t seen her […]

Lily woke me up early this morning crying telling me that her hamster Butterscotch escaped sometime last night. I calmed her down and asked her how it happened. At first she tried to accuse JP and/or me of leaving the cage door open. Really? First of all JP refers to Butterscotch as “The Vermin”. And […]

Back on 12/30/2009 Lily and I went to Build-A-Bear with some gift cards that we got in our Christmas stocking. That was when I adopted Daisy. Here is her picture from back then. That was the last outfit I bought for Daisy until the other day. I saw a Seattle Seahawks outfit on Ebay that […]

Not much happened today but I do have two funny pictures to show you. We got this in the mail today from someone in Seattle. We love love love Grumpy Cat. And I sent this SnapChat. I didn’t have enough room to type “Yes another reason not to wear long dresses”.

My niece Ayla came to visit us here in Texas for a few days from the Portland, OR area. The weather here and the weather there are two completely different things… she described it as HOT. We spent a lot of time in the pool. Her friend Pam drove down from Austin and joined in […]

Today is the day! JP was out of town this week but he got back late last night just in time to celebrate his birthday. He opened a few cards. And the sign that we bought him. And of course we had cake. Happy Birthday JP!
