Little Havana

I realized that I am woefully behind in sharing photos from our trip to South Florida over Fourth of July weekend. And since it is almost the 1st of August, I figured I’d better get on it. Of course, being the shutterbug I am now I decided I’d better break the posts up since I […]

Week in Photos

7/19/09 – 7/25/09 So the week didn’t start out so good. Saturday I went and did my normal 3 mile walk. Saturday afternoon we went to Lone Star park, and by the time we got home I had really horrible horrible blisters on the backs of my heels. So bad in fact, I could really […]

Summer’s Bounty – Tomato Tart

Several years ago, I spent a lot of time watching Martha Stewart’s show on tv and had a subscription to Living that I poured through every month. This was all pre-jail time, not that the jail rigamarole had anything to do with my falling a little bit out of love with Ms. Martha. But, one […]

Random Tuesday Thoughts

      On several of the blogs I read, I’ve noticed that there has been an interest in creating a gallery wall to showcase photos and/or art. I wanted to share our gallery wall with you too. When Eric and I first got married and moved into this house, we came to a bit […]

A Day at the Races

For the past few years we’ve gone out to Lone Star Park to see the races. Every year we have a great time and this year was no exception. We get seats inside where it’s nice and air conditioned and we have a good view of the track. We have lunch and get ready for […]

A Week in Photos

7/12/09 – 7/18/09 I am so in love with our gallery wall. In fact I did a post on it here. And the map I gave Eric for a wedding present to mark our travels together. I eat salads pretty often for lunch which can get old. But let me tell you, the salad I […]


Ok, so I’ve been thinking lately (never a good thing, probably). In my mental wanderings two things have come to my attention. 1) I cannot stand misspellings (typos we all make, granted) and 2) I need to be selective in what I choose to read. So, as far as the misspellings go, Blue-Eyed Bride already […]

Dallas After Dark

At the end of June, Eric invited me to go on a photo walk around Dallas with a group of Photographers (actual real live Photographers). Although it was hot as anything, I do think it was worth going for the few good shots I got (even with my point and shoot camera). We started off […]

Week in Photos

7/5/09 – 7/11/09 7/5 was part of the Miami trip, see last week’s post for links. Tomato Tart photos here. Nothing else to show this week. (Sad, isn’t it?)

A Passion for Polish

We are back from our trip and it was wonderful. I haven’t yet had the chance to go through my photos though, so I have nothing beach-worthy to share. In the meantime though, I thought I’d blather on about something near and dear to my heart…nail polish. I can’t tell you how grateful I am […]

A Week in Photos

6/28/09 – 7/4/09 All photos from this week can be seen here here here Miami!!

Sunday Night Cocktail – Mumsicle

I’ve been remiss with posting the Sunday Night Cocktail (aka what’s in the liquor cabinet?), so I thought I’d rectify that right now. This is one we’d never heard of, but we had all the ingredients, so why not. Allow me to present the Mumsicle. I surfed around the web but didn’t find any tidbits […]
