Last week I was outside talking to my neighbor and she asked if we were going to the Battle of Flowers parade. Then she told me that she knows someone on the committee and can get us tickets. Since Lily has the day off school for Battle of Flowers I said we would love to […]

My sister put a comment on my last blog post asking “What is in the carton of eggs?”. She means the carton of eggs that you can see in Lily’s Easter Basket. Those are Cascarones. In my opinion they are the most annoying thing about the Easter holiday. Every time we go somewhere that has […]

This morning Lily came running into our room at like 7:00am screaming “The Easter Bunny came last night, The Easter Bunny came last night”. I told her that I guess the bunny knew that she was going to her dad’s tonight so he came a day early. Check out her cool basket loaded full of […]

Last week when I was picking up Lily from school her teacher approached me and asked if I would be willing to volunteer to help with their class Easter party. Of course I said yes. Last time I helped at the school was on a field trip this time it was actually in the class. […]

The other day I found more Easter decorations in a plastic bin in the garage. Now we have some bunnies in our house. This bunny over by the fireplace. And this bunny hanging on the back door. And of course a few bunny stickers for the windows. I think the creepiest bunny we have is […]

I almost forgot to mention that we decorated for Easter today. We don’t have a lot of Easter decorations but we do have stuff up on the windows. Check out the awesome job that Lily did with the letters. Oh and we bought some Easter candy. As we were eating them Lily said she hopes […]

What is Pi Day? If you don’t know what Pi Day is click here. If you do know what Pi Day is then you will know that the only logical thing to do is make a pie! Lily and I decided to try our hand at making a Lemon Meringue Pie. This is what you […]

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 […]

Today has been one of the laziest days I have had in awhile and I love it. I was so tired when I went to sleep last night that my eyes didn’t pop open until like 11:30am-ish. We don’t have a lot of food on hand and we were not going to anyone’s house to […]

Even though Lily is only in 3rd grade she still comes home with homework every single day. It is always math and reading. We have the perfect after school routine. I pick her up from school. And when we get home we relax a bit then when I am ready to start cooking dinner it […]

Today was day 2 of our beach adventures. Shauna and the babies had too much sun the day before so Lily, Gage, JP and I headed down to the beach without them. Here is the sweetest picture of the day. Lily and Gage are both big talkers either one can talk you ear off about pretty much […]

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 […]

I always joke around and say “Mother’s Day is the one day of the year that JP gets up with Lily and I get to sleep in”. But now that I think about it I seriously don’t think I am joking. JP, Lily and Gage woke up and made a yummy breakfast for Shauna and […]

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 […]

This morning Lily discovered Easter baskets near the front door. So exciting! There where lots of goodies in each basket but I think everyones favorite things where either the bathings suits or the personalized towels. Look mine says Daisy on it! Once the baskets were picked through Lily looked at us and said “I wonder […]

What would an Easter weekend be without dyeing some eggs? Remember that dye I showed you the other day? Today was the day! While I was at work Lily and Amanda boiled up every egg that I had in the house. She made a comment that was something like “This is the least amount of […]

Me and Amanda went to The Quarry Mall to go Easter Bunny shopping today. I can’t tell you what I bought because I think someone might read this before Saturday morning. While we were out shopping I told Amanda that I don’t think we own any Easter decorations. Amazing considering all the other other holiday stuff we have! I picked […]
