It's Summer in Houston!

Summer sure got her quick this year. The weather is still relatively gorgeous for Houston, so not complaining YET. We started out the summer by taking a Memorial Weekend trip to Concan, Texas with our good friends, Pat and Tanyia. Their condo proved to be a relaxing place to hang out away from the kids. Just minutes from Garner State Park and the Frio River, there is a lot of fun to be had there.

The rest of the summer will involve a July 4th backyard party--Texas Style, a couples bridal shower at the end of July and a September wedding of my son and Katy on September 8 in Las Vegas. Two destination weddings in one year...OUCH! Kaden has decided he wants to be a "for-hire" ring bearer because he is just so darn good at it and what a cutie pie. He has done two weddings already this year.

For Cousin Danielle

For Aunt Lindsay

I hope everyone has a SAFE and FUN summer, I know we will sure be trying!

28 Years With the ONE I LOVE!

I can't believe it's May already! Every month this year has been full and busy with so many different things and lots of love in the air (5 family weddings this year). We celebrated Mother's Day with 30 family members for brunch at Pappasitos and Lindsay and Matt gave me the most precious book of their it! Katy and Anthony brought me beautiful roses and paid for my brunch!! I've been taking fondant cake decorating classes this month and look out Ace of Cakes, there's a new gal in'll never be a career for sure, but it is loads of FUN! May has been a month of sickness....everyone seems to have some variation of the flu, with my sweet hubby having the worst case. But, he is well and just in time to celebrate our 28th Wedding Anniversary, which is this Saturday, May 23!! AFTER ALL THESE YEARS, HE IS STILL THE ONE I LOVE!! We are celebrating it with our oldest friends, Pat and Tanyia Conner in Concan, Texas near Garner State will be the first time in forever that we have actually gone anywhere with no children or grandson so I'm having that bittersweet feeling--glad to have time away, but will miss little Kaden immensley!!

Looking forward to June when we celebrate my grandson's 4th birthday on the 10th....hubby and me are making him a 3D Monster Truck cake for his party....or that's the plan...stay tuned for pics of what we end up with.
