Yee-Haw, Baby!

Cowboy rules for: Arizona, Texas , Colorado , Oklahoma , New Mexico , Wyoming , Montana , Utah , Idaho, Nevada and the rest of the Wild West are as follows: 1. Pull your pants up. You look like an idiot. 2. Turn your cap right, your head ain’t crooked. 3. Let’s get this straight: it’s called a ‘gravel road.’ I drive a pickup...

Garden’s Producing :)

Yesterday I was finally able to pick food out of the garden! We got a zucchini and a cucumber. We’ve been getting a couple green beans a day, but this is the first big stuff. So today is zucchini bread-making day. Two loaves…one in the freezer, one to keep out and eat. And that’s what I do with every batch of bread or pie...

Back From Vacay!

It’s amazing how quickly 2 weeks and a few days can go by! It seemed like every day was over before it began. We stayed in Wyoming with my parents for a few days first. They have 2 llamas, 2 mini horses and 2 big horses and a bunch of sheep. And a few dogs and cats. Pierce was terrified of the horses at...

Honey’s Leaving. Jealous.

Sunday my dh is going to Texas for a week. I was very jealous. But after I made him promise to bring back a few things, I think I’ll be ok 🙂 Sunday is also his birthday, poor guy. So tonight we did the steaks on the grill and birthday cake thing for him. Tomorrow night we have a friend’s daughter’s graduation party. Kinda...

To Triathlon or to Chicken Out?

One of my sisters called me today…she was wondering if I want to do a triathlon with her when we go out there (to UT) this summer.  She tried to convince me it would be lots of fun. *sigh* So now I have to decide. I’m not worried about the biking or running. It’s the swimming. I used to be a good swimmer, but...

Memorial Day Fun.

So Monday was Memorial Day. We had great weather. Slightly overcast but warm, but not too hot.  Just a bit of sun and breeze. Every year our church has it’s annual picnic at a nearby Nat’l Park, complete with lake, boats, tables, etc.  Always lots of fun. One of the teen girls came over to talk to me…she was trying to figure out a...

Middle School Orientation!

Last night was middle school orientation for our dd. It was nice to see the school and her classrooms. But dh and I had a big problem with the presentations. They really focused on pushing trades instead of college. They had a 10 minute video on how great trades are, how much money you can make, and that college is over rated. So why...

Baby Shower

A friend at church is pregnant, due the first week of June. Our Girl’s Night group decided we would throw her a diaper shower, complete with big diaper cake. We thought of this back in January or February. Someone else (that doesn’t come to Girl’s Night ‘cuz she chooses not to, not b/c she’s not been invited) threw her one before ours. So today...

Everyone knows I have 2 little boys at home all day. Dean will be turning ONE in a few weeks and Pierce will be 4 in July. This leaves me with limited time on the computer each day. And unfortunately I’ve been distracted by Facebook. Which is why I haven’t been doing my duty upkeeping this blog like I had in the past.  If...

New Cut & Color!!

Yesterday I had my highly anticipated appointment at my favorite salon. I wanted to lighten it up a bit and get some fun new color in for summer and my stylist did a great job! She razored the top layers shorter, keeping the long layers.  Then she put in some nice blonde streaks and some nice coppery-red highlights. So my hair is now brown,...
