I walked out in the garage today and this guy was just standing there. He didn’t really move the entire time I was out there. Like this:Like Loading…


A few years ago I was reading about Houston when I found out about the National Museum of Funeral History. Anytime anyone has said anything about Houston for the last few years I have mentioned that I wanted to go check out that museum. Today I finally had a chance. I was not disappointed at […]

We have a pair of Cardinals that hang out in our backyard pretty much year round. I believe they are a pair because one of them is almost completely red. The other one is more of a brownish red color like in the picture below. They don’t let me get very close so I had to […]


Every holiday JP’s mom sends Lily a package. And every time Lily is super excited to open it up. For the last few weeks I have helped my friend Liz go through all of her things in preparation for her move across the country. She gave us three of the signs that she had at […]


For us Valentine’s Day is not really a grand affair. We aren’t really chocolate, cards and flowers kinda people. This year for Valentine’s Day we went to the store and picked out a few trees to add to our backyard. Not just any trees we bought fruit bearing trees. We were so excited to bring […]

Check out this picture of my sister and I from early 1980 something.  Typing that last line reminds me of a country song by Mark Wills named 19 Somethin’. If you haven’t hear it then here you go.   Like this:Like Loading…

One of the best things about having years and years of photos archived is that you can go back and look at things that you otherwise may have forgotten. The best part is sometime in 2008 they started getting sorted in date order. Now I can do things like this. Do you know what I […]

We spent the last few days preparing for our Super Bowl XLIX Party.  At the beginning of January when we were talking down the outside Christmas lights we left the green ones up. I told JP that if the Seahawks go to the Super Bowl that we can turn them on during Super Bowl Week. […]

Check out what they found out by the hot tub today.  This is the first rattlesnake that we’ve ever seen in our yard. We’ve seen other types but never a rattler. Check out those fangs. Raul was the bravest of us all.  Like this:Like Loading…

I feel like I have waited for a day like today for a long time. I was thrilled this morning when I saw the forecast. I dedicated the whole day to outside work. First up was vacuuming the pool. It felt so good to put on a bikini and sunscreen. I wear sunscreen on my […]

This morning I got down the box of Super Bowl decor from the garage rafters. As I was going through the container I realized that don’t really have anything good to put on the mantel.   I brainstormed for a little while and came up with an idea for a cool decoration. For less than […]

We’ve waited a long time for crawfish to come back in season. Today Groomer’s Seafood had their first shipment of these delicious little crustaceans.  Of course we had to play with our food before we cooked it. Lily is the one who likes to purge them. I think it’s mostly because she gets to play […]
