Linda sent me flowers today to say thank you for the other day. Is that not the sweetest thing ever? Inside the card it says that the teddy bear is for Lily. Thank you Linda!!

I am trying to figure out if all of my settings are working. And I am wondering about this new feedback form.. feedback anyone? The feedback goes to my email instead of being published on the webstie… I think!!


Ever since this whole experience with my gallbladder I have been asked the same question over and over again “How are you feeling?”. I will tell you how I am feeling. I feel like I was stabbed in my stomach a bunch of times. It hurts to laugh and I have to walk really slow […]

I am sure that you have heard that the state flower of Texas is the Bluebonnet, right? Well did you know that Texas actually has 5 state flowers? They are 5 different types of Bluebonnets. The two predominant species of bluebonnets are found growing naturally only in Texas and at no other location in the […]

This morning I was laying in bed and I could hear birds chirping like crazy outside the window. It made me start thinking about the warm warm San Antonio that I love. Sure I will totally take our 60-80° winter days that we currently have, but I really want some super hot 90° days. I […]

For the last few days I have been hoping to hear a knock on the door from the UPS driver. Last weekend I ordered one of my Halloween costumes online and I have been patiently waiting for it to get here. I used 2 day delivery but since I ordered it on Saturday I think […]


The whole reason we were all together these past few days is because of Pauly and Katie. For those of you that don’t know Pauly is my youngest brother, the youngest of 10 siblings. It is kinda weird to think that I won’t ever be going to any more of my siblings weddings, because everyone […]

I totally took this picture from Beth’s blog today! How can you not love it! The message that daisies bring are of innocence, purity, and gentleness on behalf of both the giver and the receiver. The daisy’s message is, “You have as many virtues as this plant has petals,” or, “I will consider your request.” […]


This morning our big plan was to drive over to Whidbey Island and take the ferry over to Port Townsend which is on the Olympic Peninsula. Our first stop was in Anacortes, WA to see a little place called Mt Erie. Oh and evidently you have to beware of owls and dusk at dawn. The […]


We woke up this morning at JP’s parents house on Camano Island. The first thing Lily said to me after I got up was “Mom, did you look outside?”. It was late and dark when we got there last night so she had no idea that we were right on a cliff  looking over the water. Camano Island […]


Today was a really good day! I picked Lily up from camp and we headed home to hang out in the pool. I am not sure if I have ever told you guys this but we have lots of flowers in our backyard. Not flowers that I planted but thing that were there when we […]


Remember those plants I told you we planted a few weeks ago? They are growing like crazy! I took some pictures today when I was watering them. I don’t think I told you before but in a big planter in the yard we are attempting to grow tomatoes, strawberries and cilantro. They were very small when we started. Here is […]


We have gotten some quotes from landscapers to do our backyard because it is so big and crazy. There are leaves and pollen all over the place. There are also way overgrown trees and plants that need to be trimmed back. Well two quotes from landscapers later we have decided that we should keep the $1,500 and do it ourselves. […]


I have told you guys a bunch of times that in May it will be one year since I quit smoking. There are so many great things about quitting. I could make a huge list of the pros but you never hear anyone talk about the cons. When I smoked I would always go out […]


My besties sent me flowers today! Thanks Amanda & Stephanie!


This is what I did today!


Today is day 30 of my new smoke free lifestyle! JP sent flowers and balloons to my work to remind me of how proud he is! As usual he knows exactly what kind of flowers to send! Thanks JP!!


When we pulled up to the house today I noticed these flowers growing on a tree in the front yard. I have no idea what they are but they are beautiful! They are growing upside down on the tree like that. While me and Amanda were admiring the flowers Lily found a snail. And another And […]


I told Stephanie that someone told me that the golden fruit growing on the trees in the backyard was edible. She immediately grabbed one and took a bite. Cathy told us what it is called and we can’t remember what she said but we think it was “Gyabba”?. She said that was the spanish word for […]

We have these beautiful flowers growing on the side of the house all over the fence. I didn’t notice them until the other day but I love them! There are tons of them! Does anyone know what they are called?
