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

I am very proud to announce that I had a grocery shopping milestone today. When I started making my shopping list I knew that I needed enough food to get us from today at lunch until at least Wednesday morning. We learned the hard way a couple of years ago that even though we live […]


For the last year every time we drive past the Target near our house we would wonder what was going in next door to it. Big building, lots of construction… what could it be? Then a couple of months ago the signs went up. We were so happy to see that we were getting a […]


I have always find it odd how much paper the grocery store uses for their receipts. Here is a really good example. I bought 7 items and look how long my receipt is. My purchase is circled in red. And this isn’t to mention the stupid coupons they print out and hand to you as […]


I have been asked a few times in the last couple months what it is like to not have a job. Sure I might not have a “job” but that does not mean I don’t “work”. The big difference between my old job and new job is that I love love love the new one. […]


Today we packed up our stuff and headed to the beach for a long weekend of fun in the sun. We are renting a condo down on the Gulf of Mexico on Mustang Island in Port Aransas, TX. Our condo is full water view and only steps from the beach! We are sharing the condo with my dear friend […]


Lily wore hanging earrings for the first time in her life today. Every time we go into a store that has earrings she always wants to get the big ol hoops but I keep telling her she has to wait until she gets older. We got her the pair she wore for Valentine’s Day this […]


I have told you before that we named my car MSW, do you remember what it stands for? Today I have a prime example of why maybe getting this car was not my best choice as far as practicality goes. When I got out of work today it was warm and sunny so I put the […]


I had the day off of work today so I had a little more time to prepare dinner than usual. We had another beautiful 75°+ day so I decided BBQ is the way to for todays dinner. At the grocery store today I bought a new marinade that the chef recommended. The HEB that we shop at […]


Today we were in line at the grocery store. I was talking to the girl ringing up our grocerys and Lily was talking to the girl working in the next isle. Lily said “I like your pin” the girl said “Thank you” Lily said “Where did you get it?” the girl said “From my boss, […]


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 […]


Today is Earth Day 2010! When we were at HEB getting food for dinner they gave us a free reusable grocery bag. I told Lily to Ta-Da and this is what I get. Very typical. Ta-Da take two!


Today I was in the grocery store buying things for dinner. I was so excited when I saw that haas avacados were selling for $0.44 since each. I looked at the label and learned that they are a product of Chile. I’m guessing its the height of the growing season? Then I noticed some much […]
