For a few years I have thought about getting a cool sticker for my laptop. I finally ordered a few and they came in the mail today. Check out my new sticker! And I let Lily pick which one she wanted for hers. Naturally she picked the camera.

JP and I had a day or two to kill so we drove down to the coast to soak up some rays. As usual we picked up some food from our favorite place before we hit the beach. I love this man. I love the beach. Life was pretty perfect. Doesn’t he look comfortable? The […]


Lily and her dad went on summer vacation so I am in charge of her hamster and her fish. I’ve told you about Butterscotch before. She was here last summer and pulled off a big escape from her cage. You can read about that here.  Lily has worked with her a lot since then and […]


I bought 500 popsicles today. I saw this idea years ago and today I finally got around to doing it.   JP says that they aren’t called popsicles. He said that popsicles are on sticks. We argued about it but then we couldn’t decide what to call them. It was all worth it just to […]

We see the squirrels do this all the time but it still makes us laugh. Check out this dude chillin on the back porch today. I looked back in the archives and I’ve mentioned this at least two other times. In 2011 I mentioned it here and it 2013 here.  And speaking of strange squirrel […]

Yesterday Lily told me that she wanted to have a few friends over for a pool party. So pool party we did. These kids were so much fun!

We see this guy pretty much daily in our backyard. He drinks out of the hummingbird feeder by tipping it slightly. He eats out of the peanut feeder and he eats out of the regular feeder. I think the funniest thing about him is that he flys around like a secret agent. He moves really […]

Like two months before the event I was invited to the Facebook location in Austin, TX to be part of a panel. I was allowed to bring one friend with me so I brought Liz. They gave us a tour of their office, feed us lunch, and asked us lots of questions. I am so […]


When you stop blogging for a while it is amazingly hard to catch back up. I looked through our May memories and this is what I came up with. Sorry if this page takes longer than normal to load but it will be worth it. This is our month in .gif files! We spend a lot […]

For the last few weeks I have meant to put the hummingbird feeders out. I’m not sure why but I just never got around to it. Then the other day I was sitting out on the back deck and a hummingbird fluttered in my face and squeaked at me. I am pretty sure it was […]

Happy Easter everyone! We don’t really do much for Easter around here. Actually we never even have Lily on Easter Sunday because she spends it with her grandparents. They take her to church and have a nice family party. This year we did dye eggs though. I am not a big fan of hard-boiled eggs […]

A few months ago I subscribed to the magazine Cooking Light. We love our home cooked meals and it is nice to get ideas from other places. The recipe for pork chops with fennel, orange and olive salad caught my eye.  This was my first time cooking with fennel. I had no idea that it smells […]


My dearest friend Angela was in town this weekend. We never fail to have a good time together. Usually we just chill out by the pool and hang out with friends. But this time we headed downtown with Nicole and did the CityScape Adventures Scavenger Hunt.  We didn’t come in first… or last place. But […]


My sister and her family escaped the cold of the Ann Arbor-ish Michigan area to spend the week with us here in San Antonio. I love having visitors and they are no exception. I love the sound of a busy house. Over the past week we spent a lot of time in the pool, hot […]

I have declared this year as the Summer of Strapless. Over the last few weeks I have gotten my first suntan of the season and I realized something. I am wearing a strapless wedding dress in the fall. STRAPLESS! This means that I have about six months to get rid of those tan lines on […]

Lily had her first volleyball game of the season with her new team. I am so glad that I bumped her up an age group. The difference is amazing.  We feel like we are watching a volleyball game instead of a jungleball game. 


Man I am horrible about updating lately. I guess I don’t really have all that much to say. Here are a few things that were on my mind this week. Have you ever looked at your weather app and wondered what the symbol meant? I have no idea what Thursday’s symbol is for. But then […]

We spent a few days in San Diego, CA for Lily’s spring break this year. It wasn’t very warm but it also wasn’t very cold. Here are some silly pictures that I took this week. We found this huge burger at Slater’s 50/50. And this snake warning sign in Point Loma at Cabrillo National Monument. […]
