Schmorgasbord with Bling

And she thinks she has no bling.


1 Hello Kitty flashlight
1 angel dress costume tied up into a rockin' top
1 wig (on loan from a neighbor)

1 inner star unleashed - priceless


The kids made a quick, 2- act Star Wars skit for us way back on Father's Day.  Guess who Little Man was?

I thought that was pretty darn creative!


I had purchased these two books to read over our vacation.

I didn't read either of them!

Since we've been back, I have started  Dr. Meeker's.  I thought it would be a good one as we prepare for the upcoming school year.

Mamarazzi.  I swear the kids think I'm stalking them most of the time!  LOL



Took the kids to "lunch" the other day.   A celebration to kick off the first day of school on Monday.  Hell, when it's this hot, what else is there to do?!

Okay.  Not completely healthy.

Mine is on the bottom right - Belgium chocolate and New York cheesecake flavored yogurts with granola, yogurt chips and itty-bitty pieces of cheesecake sprinkled on top.

Yes.  It was very good!!!


New TLC show on Monday 9pm CST, Surprise Homecoming hosted by Billy Ray Cyrus.  What an amazing (and emotional) show honoring not just our troops arriving home but the families who sacrifice so much waiting on the home front for them!


David took me out for a delicious lunch to celebrate our anniversary.

(Picture - compliments of Ester.)

We arrived home to find a scrumptious chocolate cake cooling on the counter and smelling the house up in the most yummy way!

Candles and all!

They can drive us absolutely insane....but we love them to the moon and back!


Weather.  Okay.  I'm going to complain.  July and August are miserable for us like your January winter is for you all up in the Midwest. Darn right miserable.

This summer, the heat was bad by mid-June. 

Drought.  You may have heard what a horrible drought the state of Texas is in...the third worst drought in history (since record keeping started.)

Watching the weather report....

Cotton crops are ruined.  (Watch for the cotton prices to jump.)  Cattle are being sold.  (Beef prices will drop dramatically and then rise sharply do to a shortage.)

The only thing that will knock the drought/heat out...a tropical storm!  Yes, people are actually hoping for a tropical storm to hit Texas.


Stay cool.  Rock your weekend.  And don't your ice cream!  When I raise my spoon let's all charge for our freezers!

 (Spoon now raised :)
