california summer

This past weekend was a quintessential summer weekend, and I loved every minute of it. It has been hot here (I know, coming from a Texas girl), but we don’t have AC, so there’s no escaping it. After a busy couple of months of traveling and having visitors, we are so grateful for some weekend […]

take me out to the ball game

This past weekend we made it to a baseball game for our friend Oscar’s birthday. The Houston Astros were playing the Angels, and it was perfect weather for an afternoon ballgame. We of course got the baseball game necessities (nachos, hotdogs, bratwursts), and we got to see four home runs. We had the biggest little […]

Happy Friday!

Every week I eagerly await for Friday at 1pm to come around because then I am FREE! Well, I’m free for a couple of days at least. I know I shouldn’t live life wishing it to constantly move faster, but I can’t help it! This afternoon I finally got around to cleaning my room (there […]

walkin’ on sunshine

This weekend I was finally awarded the sunshine I’ve been craving. But perhaps I should have listened to the old adage, “Be careful what you wish for.” I was able to make my first UT baseball game of the season, and boy did I pay for it. I disregarded the fact that it was midday, […]
