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

When you stop blogging for a while it is amazingly hard to catch back up. I looked through our May memories and this is what I came up with. Sorry if this page takes longer than normal to load but it will be worth it. This is our month in .gif files! We spend a lot […]


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 […]

This morning JP had meetings in the morning but a few hours to spare in the afternoon. Before he left this morning he asked what I wanted to do today. The marketing from the 80’s and 90’s must have worked because I asked him where Golden, CO is. He told me to look into it […]

Today I went to the Anheuser-Busch Brewery in St Louis, MO. I am pretty sure this is the first brewery I have ever been to. There is so much to see. And so much to learn about their history. The tour is free but I spent $10 to take the Beermaster Class. They spent about […]

What is the BBQ Cookoff? I took this directly from the website: The San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo Bar-B-Que Cookoff is an annual event that occurs prior to the start of the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo. Nearly 300 teams of the world’s best Barbequers compete in this championship event. There is live music throughout the day, […]

I almost got attacked by a bucket!

One of our favorite things to do when we have a long weekend is to head down to the Gulf of Mexico and spend some time in the sand. Lily was with her dad for the holiday weekend so this is the first time we have ever gone without bringing someone else along. It turned […]

I have always been a fan of vodka martinis. I like drinking out of the martini glasses, the vodka and the olives. If I order one in a restaurant I always ask for it slightly dirty. Any time I have one at home I always have JP make it because he seems to make the […]


I play sports 3 times a week. Friday I play softball with Beer-Riffic, Sunday softball with Not Them Again… Again, and Tuesday kickball with Kicking Balls. I don’t show up as often as I used to because sometimes I am out of town but when I do I always have a blast. I was going […]

Last night before we went to bed Angela told me that her mom was taking the day off of work today to hang out with us. Our plan was to hit the beach. This is my second trip here and until today we had’nt spent any time just beachin it. Our first stop was at […]

Usually I play softball on Tuesdays but the season ended a couple weeks ago. As you know my Sunday softball has also ended so you won’t hear me talking about softball again until the spring. Luckily JP is in town this whole week so he has been able to keep me entertained. We don’t usually […]

The entire time I have lived in San Antonio I have heard people talk about Wurstfest every November. I guess I always kinda assumed German festivals would be in September/October because of Oktoberfest but this one isn’t. You can read the history of this festival if you click HERE. As you already know I am […]

Today I had a pretty perfect day! It started with Lily wanting JP to help her make me breakfast in bed. But since the fridge was pretty empty they had to get creative. JP brewed some coffee and Lily cut the cake. I mean coffee + birthday cake = coffee cake, right? Then as I […]


It is no secret that the Mariner’s are having about as good of a season as Seattle is a summer. But regardless of that how could a trip to Seattle be complete without a baseball game? Here are 4 of the 13 tickets that got my group into tonights game.! Even JP’s parents Marlene and Bob joined […]


Every once in awhile something happens. I can’t really explain it. And I don’t usually know that it is happening. Then the sun sets and as I lay snug in my bed a thought occurs to me. I DIDN’T TAKE A PICTURE OF ANYTHING TODAY! In my head I recapped my day and I totally did things […]


Today Sarah’s childhood friend Kris drove down from Dallas to spend the evening with us. It has been a long time coming but I finally found a girl who is more sarcastic than I am. If you can’t take a joke we are not the people you want to hang out with. I loved it! […]


You know how I am always preaching to you guys about keeping your digital pictures safe by archiving them by sending them up to the sky? Well let me tell you a little story and give you another example why it is fun to be able to go back and walk down memory lane! I have blogged about my […]


I have a tendancy to find something that I like then do it over and over and over again until I am completely tired of it. Right now crawfish is my thing. Remember we had it last week when we took Amanda to Willie’s to try it for the first time? Well I am at it again only this […]


Yesterday we took Stephanie and David to the airport and they headed back to Seattle. Amanda has decided to stay a little longer and spend some time making decisions. I haven’t taken many pictures in the last two days but when I looked back at the photos from this weekend I realize just how much I […]


I love it when people come to our softball games so naturally I was thrilled that Amanda, Stephanie and David were coming with me this week! They were playing but I knew that would be up in the stands cheering us on. It was actually the perfect game for them to come to because we […]


Today my other bff Stephanie and her boyfriend David came to spend the weekend with us.  By the time I got home from work JP had already picked them up from the airport and they were at my house waiting for me. These are three of my favorite girls! Amanda, Stephanie and Lily. Since Stephanie doesn’t […]


Today we took Amanda out to dinner so that she could try crawfish for the first time. For anyone who hasn’t tried it it’s pretty freakin good. One very important thing is to order beer along with it because they are spicy! We ordered the family order that came with crawfish, sausage, potatoes and corn. Amanda says “Eat […]
