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...

No More Crib!!

Dean loves beds. As in nice mattresses and big fluffy pillows. He gets on beds and rolls around, laughing and is just generally hilarious. Every night we put him in his crib. And you know how cribs are…firm, flat mattress, nothing allowed in the crib other than baby. So every night he would wake up in his crib and want to come to bed...

Migraines Suck.

If you don’t want any whine with your cheese today, this probably isn’t the post to read.  You’ve been forewarned. Today is the first day I’ve woken up without a migraine. Yay for that, I guess…kinda, in a weird, twisted way. It didn’t set in until about 10:30am. I’d forgotten what it was like to not have my head hurt around the clock. It...

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...

We’re going on vacation in just a few days, so if you happen to stop in, that’s where we’ll be 🙂 Dh’s trip to Texas went well….he brought back plenty of chili and I’ve already eaten some of it. Yes, it’s as good as I remember.

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...

Soccer Registration Today!

Today is registration for fall soccer. Gab missed the deadline last year but she played the 2 years before. She’s excited to get back in the game. And the extra-exciting part is, Pierce is old enough to play!! He made the age cut off by 6 days…we were so close to not getting him in this year. Good thing he was born 2 weeks...

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...
