We had an exciting day today. The first thing that was cool is that I discovered a new cheese. Next time your wanting something new try Heini’s Greek Yogurt Cheese. Next we headed to La Cantera to look at winter coats. Why winter coats? Because I want something more stylish for my next trip to […]


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 […]

This morning when I woke up and looked outside it was snowing!! I went back in my picture archives and I am pretty sure that last time that I saw snow falling from the sky was in March 1998. Our apartment is up on the 19th floor and it was snowing up there but I […]

We went to the mall today… on Black Friday. Crazy, right? Well it wasn’t to shop. North Star Mall has a parade every Black Friday and most of the stores have children wearing clothing from their stores and walking in the mall parade. Lily was wearing clothing from Naartjie and was in the parade because […]

The other day Lily told me that she wanted a new pair of dress shoes. She said she wanted them to be black with a strap across the front. Then she said “I think they are called Mary’s”. How cute is that? She was asking for a pair of mary janes. Since she had early […]

Don’t you love days when you get exciting stuff in the mail? Today was one of them for me. A couple of days ago I ordered a Tie-Not to help fill water balloons tomorrow. I have no idea if this really works but tomorrow we are going to find out! You can check out their […]

This morning I asked Lily “What are we gonna do today?”. Without hesitation she said “School shopping at La Cantera”. I have mixed feelings about school clothing shopping. The thing is that Lily gets new clothing all the time so it seems silly to me that she should need anything at all. But every year […]


Today we met JP’s mom Marlene in Lynnwood at Alderwood Mall for a little shopping. Specifically we were headed to the American Girl store. I have told you about her doll before and that there are only a few of the American Doll stores in the United States so we had to take advantage of […]

After school today Lily and I headed over to The Shops at La Cantera. I went back in the archives and discovered that this is my 13th time talking about this shopping mall. Needless to say we LOVE it. We bought wall plug refills at Bath and Body, a kitchen tool at Williams Sonoma and […]

I laughed when I saw this packaging in the grocery store. I think I would prefer not to think of my food as born or raised. I would never buy beef that is packaged like this. Weird!

I think I’ve told you guys before about Groomer’s Seafood in San Antonio. Earlier this week they posted a message on facebook about pre-ordering crawfish for the Superbowl. This is the first shipment of crawfish they were getting this season so we were all over it. The only downfall was when I called to pre-order […]

Today Corey and I headed to The Shops at La Cantera to walk around and buy a few things. My main reason for going was to go to Sur La Table for some new kitchen supplies. I ended up getting a few fun things and as I was walking through the store I spotted this. […]


When I woke up this morning I went up to the office and told JP that I had a case of cabin fever and needed to get out of the house for awhile. I told him I was gonna go walk around Artisans Alley . It’s a pretty cool place not too far from our […]

After I picked up Lily from school today we had a few things that we had to get done before we went to bed. We needed to go shopping and buy her a new winter coat and we had to pack our bags for our last minute trip to Seattle. Check out this super cute […]

For Lily’s birthday last year I took her to get her ears pierced. She wore her earrings for a few months but then one day her ears became a little bit infected. I took her earrings out to medicate them and let them rest. I am sure you can guess what happened next. Yup. About […]


I told you about my adventures in Old Town Spring yesterday so today I am gonna tell you about what I bought! There is a store named Crossroads Collection that makes tea and aromatherapy. My first thought was to look for a tea that I have been wanted for quite a while now. I asked the store owner […]


I don’t think I have mentioned this yet but JP went to work for a different company. Since he has started with them his traveling has increased and will continue to increase. He had to be in Houston, TX today for work so last night I drove with him and we stayed the night at […]


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. […]


We woke up this morning around 8:00am in our room on the 22nd floor of the hotel.  Last night when we checked in they informed us that the continental breakfast would be on the club level on the 23 floor. So after we showered and got ready we headed upstairs for breakfast. Lily gave the breakfast rave reviews. […]


Lily hasn’t gotten a new pair of flip flops since last summer so most of hers and pretty beat up. She has been asking for a new pair for a few weeks now. Today we had a couple hours to kill between when I picked her up and volleyball practice so we headed to the […]


I read not to long ago that there are people who don’t wear deodorant. Can you believe it? I can’t imagine going one day without deodorant much less never wearing it. I have been trying a few different deodorants over the last year or so and these are the ones that I wear the most. The […]
