When you combine a mammogram, a day off, 3 children, and a trip to Wal-mart, you are only asking for trouble.

What makes my Friday (aka my day off) so very special?  Well, I discovered that it certainly does not include waking up at 6am,  a mammogram, and going to Wallyworld (aka Wal-mart) with all three of my children (that I allowed to have soda at lunch before our shopping adventure).   Not only did I have the […]

A change

Today my husband’s sweet grandmother signed over this house to its new owners.                                        I just happened to be in the neighborhood and could not resist taking a photo for nostalgia purposes.    I love the look of this house.  It makes me sad that in a few weeks it will be bulldozed and construction will start on a […]

Photo Meme

Musings of a Housewife tagged all of her readers for this fun little meme.  Sincerely Anna did the same thing.  I took it as a sign I should participate. If you want to play, just answer the question in your head, google an image of it, then choose one of the pics from the first […]

Post-Thanksgiving thankfulness

As I was addressing my Christmas cards tonight I was thankful.  I was thankful for the 100 plus people who I still send Christmas cards to yearly.  I am thankful for the impact they have had on my life.  I am thankful that they invested in our family.  I have a little “picture” in my […]

Here is the promised picture

Here is my promise I made to you to take a picture of the twins at church this morning. I most certainly marched back into the nursery, snagged my nephews and had a friend snap this shot.  You know, the more I look at the two together, the more I see how much they do […]

7 Random Things Meme

I have never been personally tagged before but thanks to Blog in my Eye, I am now it.  And just like her, I am getting awfully close to my 100th post so we can consider this a preview of my random 100 list.  And this can’t be hard.  It just can’t.  You see, I am one […]

It just isn’t Thanksgiving weekend without Southlake Carroll football

That is, the Dragons winning of course. As a highschooler living in the initial start of the Dragons’ victory streak, we NEVER left town over the Thanksgiving holiday.  It was a rule that we attended the playoff games, and one being of upmost importance held at Texas Stadium.  Over the years I continued to go […]

The polls are open…we need your vote!

Well, the photo session went without a meltdown.  The kids handled it well too. The Lad was resistant but quickly discovered that he could have fun in front of the camera.  And fun he had.  A lot of fun.  I might not have snapped the perfect picture for our Christmas card but we laughed … […]

The Events of Turkey Day

The day actually began the night before when we spent the night at Nana and Papa’s (aka my parents’) house.  (Thus the turkey bath episode from my previous blog.  And you thought pet spas were ridiculous).  After days of 80 degree weather, the temperature took a nose dive and dropped to almost 40 degrees by […]

My mother got confused – very, very confused

Now my mother is a good ole southern lady.  Not only can she love you to pieces but she can cook.  Boy, can she cook.  Just like her Momma.  And she is a very faithful woman too.  Especially to my Dad, to whom she has been married for 39 years. So imagine how astounded I […]
