Whew are we tired!

We just got in from a wedding. This girl was our daughters first babysitter, other than family. She started babysitting for us when she was about 13 or 14 years old and darling daughter was 3. Now she has grown up and gotten married! Boy do I feel old!

It was an outdoor wedding which I was really dreading because "Hello....South TX almost June.....people it is hot here!" but we got there early, snagged a seat in the semi shade and it was not too bad. They had a really nice reception. They served a meat and cheese tray for appetizers and so we all had something to do (and eat) while we waited for them to take the pictures. They even had a candy buffet, which the kids loved! Prime Rib for the main course and Italian Cream Cake! Yummy!

We are home now, all pooped out and stuffed silly! Congratulations to the Newlyweds and Good Night Everybody!

Good to know I guess! Nothing happening that I want to share today so I thought I would fill in with this, so the two or three people who actually read this blog would know I was still among the living!

You Are a Realist

You don't see the glass as half empty or half full. You see what's exactly in the glass.

You never try to make a bad situation seem better than it is...

But you also never sabotage any good things you have going on.

You are brutally honest in your assessments of situations - and this always seems to help you cope.

Just for Fun......
LogoThere are
people with my name
in the U.S.A.

How many have your name?

I did my husband's name and found that there are only 167 people with his name which is strange to me since I have come across guys with his name but never anyone with mine! Maybe it is because it goes by names on birth certificates and my name is very popular as a middle name? My daughter only shares her name with 8 other people so that is pretty unique since there is nothing different about her name, it is not like we named her "moonunit" or something weird.



I just went back to the site and noticed that there were some not so Christian advertizing links, so don't let your kids do this by themselves and don't click on the links. I still think this is interesting info but don't like the links.

Mother's Day

I hope this finds you all enjoying a very happy Mother's Day weekend. I want to take just a moment to say how thankful I am that God allowed me to have 43 wonderful Mother's Days with my Mom. I have been blessed with 10 (as of tomorrow) with my own daughter. Please take a moment to say a prayer of thanksgiving for your mothers. If you are blessed to still have them in your lives, go hug them and tell them how much they mean to you!

Color Me?


You surround yourself with art and music and are constantly driven to express yourself. You often daydream. You prefer honesty in your relationships and believe strongly in your personal morals.

Find out your color at!

I am not sure this is exactly me but I do love the color purple so it has got at least part of it correct!

Funny Thing Is.....

This week has included a new purchase with a broken mirror so the purchase had to be exchanged, a stubbed toe, a huge mug of coffee dropped and broken, sending coffee all over a recliner, carpet, table and lamp. Bright red fingernail polish on my soaking tub. A piece of cake dropped icing side down at church on Weds., a bite of salad with Italian dressing dropped down the front of my brand new shirt (again at church on Weds), I found a big scratch on my new car. My hubby has been working late every night this week and will have to work this weekend too. I have picked up a hundred pieces of shredded paper from the dogs paper habit. I was attacked by biting gnats at the pool. AND I have had some type of stomach bug for the last couple of days!

BUT THE AMAZING THING IS----This has been a great week compared to the one I had last week!!!!

Much Better Week--So Far!

These pictures remind me of Hawaii, I think it is time to plan another trip!

Darling Daughter finished up her TAKS test this week! Yeah, so glad to be done with that! She is going to be performing with her school choir next week, so I have been given the job of making her a pink poodle skirt for the performance! I will try to remember to post a picture of it if it comes out okay.

Well 6 AM comes early, I better get to bed! Hope you are all having a most excellent week! Blessings!
