A Not So Daily Dose of Daisy
Master of living a random, unpredictable life.

Every holiday JP’s mom sends Lily a package. And every time Lily is super excited to open it up. For the last few weeks I have helped my friend Liz go through all of her things in preparation for her move across the country. She gave us three of the signs that she had at […]


For us Valentine’s Day is not really a grand affair. We aren’t really chocolate, cards and flowers kinda people. This year for Valentine’s Day we went to the store and picked out a few trees to add to our backyard. Not just any trees we bought fruit bearing trees. We were so excited to bring […]


Happy Valentine’s Day! Have you ever walked outside and found it to be a lot warmer than you expected? Today was one of those days for us. Check out this temperature! I looked it up and according to the weather history it hit 92° today which was a record. The average temperature for February 14th […]


When I checked the mail yesterday I pulled a package out that was addressed to Lily from JP’s parents Bob and Marlene. Assuming it was for Valentine’s Day I told her that she couldn’t open it until Valentine’s Day. Today I told her that if she calls Marlene and asks for permission to open it […]


Rose’s are red Violet’s are blue Our Skeleton is gonna make a Valentine out of you!


You know those days when you get out of the shower and you just can’t decide what to wear? Our skeleton is having that problem. It is a little to early to get dressed for Valentine’s Day… so what should she wear?


I will never forget the day that I saw them for the first time. I opened up an envelope and a bunch of vintage Valentines came falling out. They were kinda hidden among stacks of printer paper and other office supplies. I remember that I spread them out on the floor and looked at each […]


It is no secret that we love holidays around here. Any excuse to decorate and celebrate and we are all over it. I was walking through the grocery store today and I saw that they have the Valentine decorations out. I grabbed a couple pages of window clings for Lily to decorate the kitchen windows […]


If you had to guess what would you say ValEaster is? Or maybe EasterTine sounds better? For us it is somewhere between Valentine’s Day and Easter and even a few weeks beyond Easter. I guess it has to do with the fact that I park my car in the garage. When I get home I […]


Remember those heart shaped balloons I told you about a few times last month? They are still floating all in lots of different cubicles at my work. Today I decided it was time to take down the ones at my desk. They were all floating and I felt bad just popping them and throwing them […]


Since Lily always goes back to her Dad on Saturday evenings we decided to do our Valentine gifts today. Here is our pile of loot. The gift bags are from JP and the yellow package came in the mail from JP’s parents. Lily got an awesome bracelet from JP’s parents and some jewelry from us. I think […]


I have mentioned before that I am a member of the employee club at my work. I was the lead for the Valentine’s Day event. I told you about it in my February 1st posting. Today was the day that we picked up the balloons and then delivered them to people desks. Here I am […]


We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.  ~Author Unknown Today is a very cold day in San Antonio. When my alarm went off it was like […]


Today Lily had her two best friends Adeline and Cameron over for a Valentine Themed sleep-over. I pre-planned a few things to make sure they would have lots of fun. I told them they were all my Valentines. I have mentioned that I love Department 56 stuff. Remember my posting about the Snowbabies and about […]


There are only 13 shopping days left until Valentine’s Day! At work the employee club is going to be starting the Valentine pre-sale tomorrow through Friday. For just $2.00 you can send your favorite co-worker a heart shapped mylar balloon, a valentine and a piece of chocolate. Not to bad, right? Well today I had […]


If you love to shop then next time you are in San Antonio make sure to ask me to take you to The Shops at La Cantera. It is an outdoor shopping mall with pretty much every store you can think of inside of it. When I go there I usually park at Macys but today I had […]


Today is a company holiday for me thanks to Martin Luther King! I didn’t have to wake up to the alarm, heck I didn’t even have to wake up at all. JP brought me a cup of coffee and a bagel in bed around 7:30am and said “I thought you were gonna sleep in today”. […]


Back on Feburary 2nd of this year I bought the most candy I had ever bought at any one time in my life… until today! I had to pick up candy for a work thing next week so we headed to Costco. The picture doesn’t do a very good job of showing just how much is in there but just keep in mind that […]
