This is how our morning weather has been for the last few days. The sky looks angry then it rains for about ohh 30 seconds. Then it dries up and the blue sky appears. Then the sky looks angry again and it rains for about ohh 30 seconds. The same thing over and over again. […]

It was a rainy day in Portland, OR today. But that didn’t stop me from walking to my all time favorite food cart. The Whole Bowl is vegetarian and only serves one item. If you are ever in the mood for a vegetarian rice bowl then this place is a MUST. I think the Tali […]

This morning JP and I hopped on a flight from St Louis to Portland with a short layover in Denver. After we boarded our flight in Denver they told us that because of severe weather in Portland there is a chance our flight might get diverted to another city. I really wanted them to send […]

Very early this morning I was packing and getting ready to leave for the airport when I heard something outside hitting the windows. I assumed it was rain so I didn’t really think anything of it right away. Then when I looked outside I saw this. Holy crap it is snowing in San Antonio, TX! […]

We had summer for a day here in San Antonio. It was warm enough to put on a bikini and vacuum the pool. I even talked JP into taking a break from working for an hour or so to soak up a little Vitamin D with me. Yup! Our tan lines are back… sorta.

This picture is from last weekend but it makes me laugh when I see it. Can you guess which one is use to temperatures in the north and which one is use to temperatures in the south? And here is a picture of Lily in a tree… that’s it.

This morning we woke up bright and early to catch our flight from Portland back home to San Antonio. On the way to the airport I received a notification on my phone that the schools in San Antonio are closed today due to severe weather. What? Check out what it said on my weather app […]

Everyone is talking about the polar vortex that is on its way to the US. Meanwhile here in San Antonio, TX today it was 80° so I put on my bikini and vacuumed the pool. Life was good for a day!

While we had a beautiful 70° day today here in San Antonio my friends in Seattle were not so lucky. Early this morning a dear friend of mine sent me this picture with the caption “I am gonna be late to work today”. Then she sent this one. And this one. And this one. Before […]

We woke up early this morning and when we got into the rental car the dashboard said 3°. I really have no idea how people live through this day after day. This just confirms the multiple conversations that JP and I have had about living in a warm climate for the rest of our lives. […]

JP and I flew to St Louis, MO today and encountered our first snow of the year. I did not add that falling snow to this picture… googles picasa did. I really wish we were in Florida with Angela instead. Well played Florida.. well played.

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!

All night last night I kept waking up because I could hear loud thunder and I could hear rain beating against the windows. Finally at like 8:00 am even though I was tired I just couldn’t sleep so I got out of bed. Not to long later Lily came downstairs and asked why I was […]

Last night I was in dreamland when all of a sudden something woke me up. I laid in bed and looked out the window at the hard rain hitting the glass. I could also hear thunder and see lightning. Then as I was drifting back to sleep the rain started hitting the glass on the […]

how to make shrimp tacos southwest

I was pleasantly surprised when I stepped outside to go grocery shopping this morning. Yes… this is the winter that I know and love! While I was shopping and trying to decide what to make for lunch I walked past the seafood counter. This made me start thinking about shrimp. There are so many things […]

Today at 11:35 am JP and I are getting on a flight to Portland, OR. The last few times we have flown there we have been leaving later in the morning and I like it so much better than the 6:00 am flights we used to take. Since we leave later we don’t get there […]

JP is in Portland this week and he sent me this picture that he took today from our apartment balcony. Look at that color change! Most of you guys are probably thinking “Yeah, so what’s the big deal? All of the trees are doing that right now”. Well the big deal is that living down […]

So just the other day I was bragging about how warm it is. Today Mother Nature put me in check. It was rainy and cold when I woke up this morning. I had some places I needed to go so all morning I waited for the rain to stop… because around here it doesn’t usually […]

Our daytime temperatures are still in the 80’s but since the night-time temps are falling into the 50’s (and starting tomorrow night the 40’s) the pool temperature is dropping like crazy. Sadly there are only going to be a few more days of swimming until next year. Today I took advantage of swimming in the […]

It has been raining on and off for a few days now. The temperatures are in the 90’s but it is pretty wet outside. I got a text from Selena bright and early this morning asking what we were up to day. Naturally it seemed like today was meant to be girls day. So we […]
