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 I made fajitas for dinner from a delicious recipe that my sister Vanessa taught me. It was a total hit. JP, Lily, Lynette and I loved it. Since we were having fajitas I served tortilla chips and salsa on the side. Lily doesn’t usually eat the salsa but she loves the chips. I am […]

A couple of weeks ago Lily brought home a permission slip that said “Your child has been selected to participate in the NEISD (North East Independent School District) Elementary Track & Field Day”. The rest of the page talked about where to be, what to wear, what time to be there, etc. This is her […]

Every Thursday for the last two years Lily has met with a reading specialist that is a private tutor. She meets with her for one hour just a few miles from our house. It is only a few miles from our house but it takes us about 15 minutes to get there. At first I […]

This week is Lily’s Spring Break. We originally had plans to head to Cannon Beach, OR to hang out with JP’s parents for a few days but those plans fell through due to the price of tickets. SWA wanted about $900 per person… ummm, no thanks. Then JP found out a few days later that […]

Today Lily and I were at the airport waiting for JP when I realized that the t-shirt she was wearing used to be a night-shirt. When she first got it as a gift in May of 2008 it was really big on her. I went back into my archives and found pictures of her wearing […]

When I was a kid, we loved to make friendship bracelets out of embroidery floss. We would weave different designs and give them to each other. It was so much fun. We even took it a step further and started weaving them into pieces in the back of our hair. Oh the memories. A couple […]


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 […]

It is no secret that Lily is Barbie crazy. It is always Barbie this and Barbie that. Sometimes she comes downstairs and asks to borrow the big camera for a Barbie photo shoot. Check out these pictures from today. Barbie is a beautician. I love how the other Barbie is surfing the web while getting […]


Late last year Lily started going to Stone Oak Orthodontics. I did a post back in April about her getting the appliance put in her mouth. You can click here to see the pictures from back then. Today she went back again and had her braces put on. She is in so much pain… and […]

It is a cold cold cold day in San Antonio. I am not okay with this. I told Lily to go get dressed so that we could go run some errands and this is what he put on. Please note what is on her feet… the only pair of warm boots that I own. UGG! […]


Lily and I were driving through the neighborhood today when she said “Mom, why are those signs all of the neighborhood?” I told her it was for the neighborhood watch. Then she said “I know that but why is there a pirate ship on the sign?” Do you see it? I told her it was […]

Today is Lily’s 11th birthday! Time sure does go by fast. Since I didn’t start blogging until a few years ago I want to share a few of my favorite pictures of her when she was younger. To celebrate her birthday I took doughnuts to her classroom. Once we passed out all the doughnuts she […]

When Lily told me this morning that she was hungry I told her I didn’t feel like making breakfast. She said that she would make it. She ran upstairs to grab her American Girl Doll Lilly and their matching aprons. Are they the cutest things ever? I thought she was going to make pancakes but […]


It is officially hot hot hot summer time in San Antonio. You know it is hot outside when both Lily and I agree that it is too hot to hang out by the pool. Sounds crazy but it’s true. Lily suggested that we go for a walk. How does that make any sense? It doesn’t […]

I have told you guys before that one of my jobs at home is to keep the pool clean. JP calls me Miss Sexy Pants Pool Girl or MSPPG for short. I haven’t vacuumed it in a few weeks so it really needed some attention. After breakfast I put on my bikini and headed out. […]

Lily has been on vacation with her dad for the last few weeks but as of today she is back. They took a long trip to Destin, FL for some fun in the sun. As soon as he dropped her off she was blah, blah, blah non-stop (remind you of anyone). I told her we […]

Lily had her first official swim meet of the season today. They had a time trial meet last weekend but this is the first time this year that they are competing against another neighborhood. After a month of practicing four days a week Lily was ready for some action. The average swim meet lasts from […]

A couple of weeks ago Lily told us that she was gonna enter the school talent show this year. Right away I assumed she would be singing. If you have spent any amount of time with Lily you will know that she is a singer. She is always singing to herself and occasionally she will […]
