Beach Bound

First week back to work is almost done! It's so hard to get back into the swing when you've been off work for 2 weeks! It was wonderful and I find myself wishing for more free time. Some day I will have it! These are photos of our short trip to Port "A". A quick get-away weekend. This weekend I will be attending another baby shower. This one is for my daughter-in-laws cousin and his wife. They are expecting a baby boy. Hubby and I did manage to get away for a few days at Port Aransas. Here are a few photos I took. Have a wonderful rest of the week!

Grandparents Day and Baby Showers

Today is Grandparents day and I spent the day with my number one granddaughter, Ashley Rose, (of course she has my middle name!) We went to my daughter's (Jennifer) house for a baby shower, which was for one of her best friends, who's name is Jennie. It was a very nice day to spend with my granddaughter and my daughter. The shower was a hugh success and Jennie received lots of nice things for her new baby. She will be having a girl sometime in October. Her name will be Avery. Very cute! My daughter did a lovely job with her table. So I'm posting it here. Happy Grandparents Day to all!

Julie & Julia

Saw the movie! Loved it! I will definitely try my hand at making Beef Bourguignon.


I just found out that the HGTV Dream Home for 2010 will be in New Mexico. It is located in Sandia Park located off the Turquoise Trail, which is between Albuquerque and Santa Fe! We have family and friends in both places, so this would be a great home to win! I will be logging in to HGTV website alot for my chances to win. Can wait to see the finished product!

Labor Day of Love

Today is Monday, and Labor Day. Time to hang out the flag and get to work in the garden. Yesterday hubby and I cleaned out all our flower beds. Whew! What a task. We also are re-doing the flowerbed along the back end of the house. Today we are off to purchase some mulch and other goodies. So, I'm calling today our labor of love. We both love to be outdoors and working in our yard. Hopefully you will be doing something productive today and have your own Labor of Love day! Even if it's just relaxing by the pool and enjoy family and friends. Photos are of our yard last year. Before the drought. We removed the old white rock from this bed and have new plants. Also, we have added some new plants to the other large garden. Will post after pictures when we are done. Have a wonderful day!

Trip to the RiverWalk in San Antonio

Jean and I went downtown, to the Riverwalk. We wanted to see the new addition to the river, but we were told you can't walk to it from the river! How sad that was. Why have an extension to the Riverwalk if you can't get to it from the original Riverwalk! We did find out the new area is 2 miles away. To far to walk it for my mother-in-law, and too hot for us today. Downtown temperature was near 97 degrees. So, we went to Casa Rio for a light lunch. I had the Taco salad, which was very delicious, water with a slice of lemon (to cool us off). Here are a few photos I took. Sept 2, 2009.
