This Plain Vanilla Box is Nothing Short of Amazing

Freshly cut grass. A deep inhale. I began to feel better. Why does simply stepping outside for a moment do that to us? We missed our plane to Chicago yesterday. We are officially 2 for 2. We attempted to go "home" from Christmas, but sadly Juliet got RSV and couldn't travel. We wanted to go "home"... Sign in to see full entry.

If You Are Up For It...A Hidden Gem In The Most Unlikely Of Places

75S was bottle necked at its usual 2 spots on Saturday afternoon. I knew what should've been a 25 minute drive would be about 1 hour, but isn't our destination always worth the sometimes troubled journey? A quick exit onto Mockingbird had the Parrott girls resting in more weekend traffic. We were... Sign in to see full entry.

When The Doorbell Rang

So right before noon the doorbell rang. The usual routine of hoisting up the 30 lb. untrained pug and putting her into the laundry room began. If not, she'll be out the door and I'll get my mile in for the day waving a box of Cheerios in my hand to coax her home. It was the UPS man in his neatly... Sign in to see full entry.

A Tempting Prescription For Making New Friends

Warm Saturday nights in San Antonio occasionally found us at Retama Park. Once a month the city horse racing venue held a kids night where parents could exercise their passion for gambling while children dined on delicacies such as hot dogs, nachos and if they were lucky, a stick of cotton candy --...

Out With The Old...In With?

It's the next afternoon and I can still somewhat feel the comfortable silence in the house. Kids down to sleep, husband sent off on an errand. I settled into my most inviting chair with a snack and hit DVR. Unfairly, but that's always the case around here, Jason was immediately and quite vocally... Sign in to see full entry.

My Previously Unrecorded Biggest Regret

In a rare moment this morning our ipod silenced itself from The Sound of Music Soundtrack and Simon and Garfunkel filled the room with the sweet sounds of The Boxer. Sophia, slightly infatuated with Julie Andrews stopped in the middle of a delicate spin and tried to switch genres. Tuesday, July 5,... Sign in to see full entry.

The Financial Impact of Personification

I personify most things. The other day I was enjoying an afternoon conversation with my new neighbor and friend. She was sharing with me how they had chosen their home. We were discussing the various spec homes available in our community and upon mention of one that I enjoyed I interjected how... Sign in to see full entry.

At The CrossRoads

Sophia and I had a rare morning to spend together today. We did a few errands in preparation for our big trip to Disney World on Monday. After we completed them, I wanted to stop by Hobby Lobby to get Juliet's picture framed. I had chosen it with the utmost care. It's the portrait that will hang... Sign in to see full entry.

The Stereotypical Sorority Girl

We have had a pleasurable few weeks visiting friends in San Antonio and having my Dad and sister spend a week with us in Dallas. This has created quite a list of potential writing material. San Antonio was having their annual 3 day cold front during our visit. It was actually nice to be "snowed" in... Sign in to see full entry.
