Wow, guys….. What. A. Week. It’s been one for the record books. There were Valentine’s Day school parties, Garen on the road two days, getting ready for helping with decorations for the school dance, and more “real work” than I can shake a stick at. And then the weekend full of laundry, washing and puttingContinue reading “My Funny Valentine”
A few years back, right after we moved into this house, my sweet mother-in-law gave us this frame. It was another color and didn’t have anything behind it. We debated between using it to hang wreaths or other stuff in it or get a large picture printed for it. But I had wanted a bigContinue reading “Chalkboard Quotes: Be the Reason Someone Smiles Today”
I love blueberries….any way you fix them. Growing up, my Grammy made a lot of blueberry muffins, blueberry cobblers, and, occasionally, a blueberry pie. For quite a few summers in a row, one of my Uncle Mo’s good friends provided a steady supply of fresh blueberries. Grammy always froze them and we had (almost) freshContinue reading “Blueberry Crumble Pie with Shortbread Crust”
My Grandad (my dad’s dad) is my last living grandparent. He’s had a couple of strokes in the last year or so and has had a rough time in general since my Granny has passed. It’s to be expected when you’ve lived a good, long life and lost your wife of 65 years. Currently, he’sContinue reading “Adventures with Four: Roadtrip to See Grandad at the Blowin’ O”
As I write this today, I’m recovering (and doing loads and loads of laundry) from our family vacation. It was fantastic and exhausting. We started out last Friday roadtripping down to Galveston with the littles (stay tuned for a post on road trips with toddlers), followed by an afternoon at Schlitterbahn in Galveston. Saturday, weContinue reading “Photo Friday: Family Cruise Vacation 2018 Highlights”
Since today is officially the beginning of summer in our household, it seems appropriate that I should post these photos from our adventures at the pool last weekend. Summer means swimming, right?!? As you can tell, we had a blast in Mammy and Yaya’s pool. Our little fish loooooove to swim! And Clara almost refusedContinue reading “Photo Friday: Just Keep Swimming”
We got Anna her first American Doll for her birthday. She loves it. Garen got this photo of us “doing hair.” I love it. So real. So special. Here’s another great one that Garen took. Happy Photo Friday!
Driving down (actually up but I always want to say I’m driving down somewhere for some reason) 35N on my way home today Carry On by Pat Green came on. It’s a Texas Country classic, in my mind. Honestly, I’ve not ever put much thought into it besides that it reminds me of driving theContinue reading “Carry On”
A few weeks ago Anna and I enjoyed a day just one on one. We got our nails and toenails done- both in red. Then, after her beauty sleep, I took her to get her hair done. I felt like the coolest Mom ever (even though I know lots of other moms do this onContinue reading “Sweet Saturday: Daughter Day”
In case you need some entertainment this chilly evening, this should do the trick. So glad Garen caught this. Future superstars, right?!?
