We're loving 2014!
Shortly after my awesome Christmas present beach artwork, Blake created this for Lainey.
I want it for the living room now!
We recently got new chairs and we're ready to deep clean and store this piece.
Lainey committed to a 2 day vigil and refused to leave it.
"It was in this family before me!!!!!!!!! How dare you!!!!!!"
(She has attachment issues.)
We celebrated Blake's 39th!
With the chocolate cake I create for each birthday and sometimes, like a few nights ago, at 8pm for no reason at all.
We put the chair on the patio.
Next move, to the garage.
New Year's Eve brought out a lot of recipes. This new one HERE is divine.
Ham....cheese....on King's Hawaiian rolls......covered with a Dijon/butter/Worcestershire/dried onion....and left to marinate.
Then, cook for 15 minutes at 350.
We paused for a moment on NYE to think back 15 years:
On the Eve of the Millennium, I drove my Corolla from Baton Rouge to Austin packed with most of what I owned, except for furniture. From that night on, Blake has been a permanent place in my life and in my heart. From those first few months where we could not breathe without each other....lunches on my breaks at Pier 1 because 8 hours seemed too long to be apart.....kid-free life on 6th Street....to getting married in San Fran....to Carter....building our first home in Keller, TX.....to Jack....Colorado....Lainey
We watched LSU beat Iowa!
And, visited the San Diego Zoo for Jingle Bells.
I feel so grateful to have passes. (Thanks, Uncle Chris!)
Look at one day admission:
I feel the same as Lainey on the Skyfari.
The goons were out to play.
The lights are beautiful and the weather is chilly.
Always a fun night each year.
These three are really good friends. I love it. They play together (basketball, Wii, Playstation, XBox, rainbow loom, tag, hide-n-seek, Littlest Pet Shop, MineCraft, and more). They fight. They argue. And, they work together to overthrow the reigning government in our house and I love that.
They won't win, but I love that they try.
And, finally......Lainey is dreaming of the runway each and every day.
This girl loves fashion.
More news possibly coming.......I'm doing a trial run with another freelance writing assignment.....which could turn into something awesome. I'll share when I can.
