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

JP and I spent the last few days on the Oregon Coast with some of his family. Marlene wanted to rent a house on the coast for a few days to celebrate her birthday. We rented a beautiful house on the ocean just outside of Seaside, OR. JP and I flew in on the last […]

Every once in a while JP and I get the urge to make something. This is what we have been up to for the last few days. JP came up with the idea and the design. The idea was to make a shelf for all of his toy cars. Since this is was my first time […]


A couple of years ago we went to our first Tamale Festival here in San Antonio. To see the picture from a few years ago click here. We went again this year and had a lot of fun. Surprisingly I didn’t take that many pictures. Actually I took 10 of them and half of them […]


My sister Vanessa has been a blogger since February 2008 and I have followed her since probably her first post. Now that I am thinking about it she might have been my blogging inspiration… who knows? If you go to Robertson Family Update you can check out what she has been up to. Vanessa and […]

Today started out like a usual Sunday for me. I woke up and took JP to the airport. After having him home and hanging out with me for the last two weeks it was really hard to see him go. When I got back home I was sitting on the porch when I noticed this […]

We don’t usually travel to Portland on Saturday’s but Lily has other plans this weekend so we took off a day early. After being on so many airplanes now I kinda wonder what other people do to amuse themselves during the flight. I usually listen to music, read or sleep. If I am able to […]


Our week-long vacation came to an end today. I think we were all ready to get home and back into our normal routine. We left Palm Desert around 7:00 am because the drive to LAX was about 2 hours. We didn’t need to leave that early but we wanted to stop in Santa Monica before […]

San Marcos River Don's Dons Fish Camp 2012 tubing tubeing toobing I35 I-35

Because I grew up in the north when I hear the word tubing I think of a cold sport. Kinda like in this picture of me tubing at The Summit at Snoqualmie Pass. But now that I live in the south it has taken on a completely different meaning. It is a warm sport around […]

When I woke up this morning the sun was shinning and the pool was calling my name. I checked the temperature and the water was up to 72°. Pretty good considering that 2 days ago it was only 70°. I decided that today was definitely a lay around and be lazy kinda day. But you […]

This morning we had a direct flight from San Antonio, TX to Denver, CO. Direct flights are awesome and a real treat because there are not to many cool places you can fly directly to from San Antonio. And the best part? The flight was less than 2 hours so we were on the ground […]

I skipped out of blogging for the last few days but now I am back! I have a really good reason for being gone so long… actually I have 3 of them. JP had to be up in Austin for the SXSW festival and I went to join him I didn’t bring my camera (all […]


When Marlene first invited us to join them in Palm Springs she told me that there was a car auction that Bob was planning on going to. This morning when we got up we met them at a small diner for breakfast. After breakfast Bob and JP headed for the car auction and Marlene and […]

Nothing is better than a nice fun Saturday adventure. Lily, JP and Corey were all game so we hopped in the truck and left home to find some fun. Our first stop was for lunch at Henry’s Puffy Tacos. If you are ever in San Antonio be sure that we take you here for lunch. […]

A couple years ago my sister Vanessa called me on the phone and told me about a show she saw on TV about puffy tacos. I told her I had never had one but that I will be sure to try one. Every time I talked to her over the next few months she would […]


My eyes popped open at about 8:30 this morning. I layed there listening but I didn’t hear the kids. My first thought that they were still asleep… yeah right. I went upstairs and found them quietly playing Barbie dolls. I told them to get dressed because it was pinata time! Lily was totally ready and […]

My eyes popped open at 8:00am this morning. Even though JP wasn’t up yet, I got up and took a shower and I was ready to go. I didn’t realize why I was up so early until I remembered the time zone change… it was 10:00am in my mind. The first thing we did when […]

I had a early morning flight to meet JP out in San Francisco, CA for a couple days. As you know there are barely any direct flights to anywhere from San Antonio so I had to lay-over in Las Vegas, NV. Everything was going well until about 10 minutes before we were suppose to board. […]

Today I had a pretty perfect day! It started with Lily wanting JP to help her make me breakfast in bed. But since the fridge was pretty empty they had to get creative. JP brewed some coffee and Lily cut the cake. I mean coffee + birthday cake = coffee cake, right? Then as I […]


The whole reason we were all together these past few days is because of Pauly and Katie. For those of you that don’t know Pauly is my youngest brother, the youngest of 10 siblings. It is kinda weird to think that I won’t ever be going to any more of my siblings weddings, because everyone […]


Today I went to Katie’s shower/bachlorette party. Here is Katie with her Mom and her sister Sara. This is my sister-in-law Kelli and my neice Erica. Here is Katie opening her first gift. And her last gift that came from me. I think every girl knows what comes in pink boxes! After the party at […]


There is no better way to end a hot day then to hang out in the pool at home with your friends. Everybody say CHEESE! It never fails. The kids always love playing with the water proof camera. I had to show everyone my best… err, cannon ball? And after telling him it could NOT be […]
