Southern Girl: Confirmed!

First, let me preface this post by saying that I was born, raised and currently reside in the South. I have never lived in a climate in which I have not been able to swim in a pool for at least 7-8 months out of the year. I have never known winter to last more […]

New Orleans Trip

Our trip to New Orleans was wonderful! Karys did really great in the car (much to my pleasant surprise!) and we had a fabulous time with our family there. Poor Tim had to work the entire time so we didn’t get to see him much. But us girls spent the days hanging out, eating and […]

The Big Easy

We’re on the move yet again… We’re heading out tomorrow morning for New Orleans, LA until next Wednesday! We are taking the 5 hour drive because after our Arizona flight, I vowed never to fly with my toddler again (or until she is older in any case). So when you are wondering why I’m not […]

Happy Anniversaries!

What a very special day today is – with two anniversaries to celebrate! The most important one being the 10 year (dating) anniversary with my husband. It was this very day 10 years ago that he first kissed me. And I am very pleased to say, he has not stopped since! Nor would I ever […]

Oh Houston…

How I love thee! Let me count the ways… Yes, we are back home after our holiday trip to Arizona to visit the in-laws. Whenever I travel, no matter where I seem to go, I am always ready to go home. I’m not sure if this is because I am older and just like being […]

A Bit of Randomness

I know I have not been around much. And luckily, during my hiatus with Edward, not much has been going on anyway. But just so you have it, here is the uninteresting scoop: ~ Finished Twilight Series and restarted them. I now have about 9 or 10 people that I have gotten to read these […]

Cheers to Us!(Tracy, Julie, Me, Mandie, Faith & Pat) The GirlsSaw a girl who looked like she was from Pulp Fiction: Then there was this guy on the street. So Molly posed with him: […]

Flights All Around!

Well, I am starting to feel like a well seasoned traveler here! Today I booked not one, but TWO flights! I will be flying to Ohio next weekend to spend a fun weekend with the girls. Many, many thanks to Frequent Flyer miles & a free place to stay or else I totally could not […]

Thursday 13

13 Things We Learned on Our Trip to Chicago 1. Spring (in the North) involves snow 2. People all tend to drive the posted speed limit (a bit frustrating for us Houstonians) 3. Their downtown is FABULOUS! And ours sucks in comparison. 4. Staying on Michigan Ave is THE place to stay! 5. Flying with […]

From the Windy City

We are in Chicago and…..it’s freaking FREEZING! No really, I’m talking freezing temps here. I think they must have missed the memo that’s almost April and that it’s now SPRING. I left my 80 degree weather only to have to bundle up again. Oh my… I don’t know how you Northerners deal with this cold […]
