First Day of School

This is my oldest daughter. Yesterday was the beginning of major change......My baby begin her first day of her Senior Year of High school. I didn't show it in front of her or let her know "I Cried". Most parents are happy, it's the beginning of the end. But for me, it is only the beginning of a hugh change that I am in no way ready for. I keep prayin' God please prepare me, I have raised her to the best of my ability. This child has brought me so much joy in my life. I admire and respect her so much.

Peace, Love & Seniors.....don't you just love how creative they are?

Of course, her first day of school she had to let all the under classmen know who the Seniors are.....

My challege to her is this......find out what her Blue Flame is.....
Pick three talents and three passion......where they intersect........You have Your Blue Flame!

My youngest baby girl.....her first day of 8th grade. She is my passionate one......she is always worried about everyone else. She is the happiest young lady. She is truly my miracle from God. He has great things in store for her. I can't wait to see what God does with her. She will be my rock in the months to come. I look up to her so much and glad she has the best character and is a women of God.

Tuna Does Vegas!

Last night my mom treated all us girls to a night out at The Grand 1894 Opera House in Galveston to see "Tuna Does Vegas". Joe Sears and Jaston Williams does a outstanding job at portraying 11 different characters each. Both of these gentleman have won numerous award for their acting and co-authoring of several plays. This play is a belly rolling of a good time. If you have the chance to see it in your area, take the time. It is well worth the money and time.
It has been a long time since my mom, sister-in-law, nieces, cousins and daughters have taken the time to do a girls night out. We had fun being together and laughing til we cried. I hope we can take the time in the near future to do some fun things together. Life seems to be so busy, we all are caught up in life going full blast ahead. I pray we don't look back with regrets.

Materialistic.......Mom is that me?

I received a phone call on my cell phone.....Mom, am I materialistic? Shocked....I asked, Who said you are materialistic?
Thinking about that question, I pondered, who isn't materialistic? Don't we all like certain things. My husband only wears Wrangler, I prefer Nike tennis shoes, D1 likes Hollister collared shirts. How many people do you know that only wears or wants certain brands. Weather it is brand name food, clothes, purses or cars we all have things we like more than the other. My question would be to the person that asked her that questions.....Aren't you materialistic as well? We should all think about what statements or acquisitions we make before we say them. When my husband and I got married his mother gave us one peace of advice that I wish we would have listened to more closely. Don't ever go to bed mad. And, Words are like feathers, once they have been scattered they can't be gathered. So, my answer to my D1.....yes we are all materialistic to some degree. Is that bad? Maybe or maybe not. God knows your heart....don't ever let anyone convince you of something you know not to be the truth.

This is my all time favorite player! I love watching the Astros especially when Brad Ausmus is playing. Although he is not the starting catcher this season I still remain an committed Astros fan. I love going to Minute Maid Park and watching the game from the stands. My husband bought us tickets to go see the Astros on Brad Ausmus night which is August 29th. I can't wait! I will be taking my camera so I can get some pictures of Brad up close. Our seats are behind home plate. We will leave early so that I can get to Minute Maid Park early......maybe I can have my picture taken with Brad in my Ausmus Jersey. Hopefully he will sign it. Anyway, I will post all the details after the big game. By the way.....the Astros are doing much better now. I pray they can keep winning and playing one inning at a time.
