I am, missing. Always. 

Like I said on the last post from 2 almost 3months ago, "I can't believe its been this long since i've posted"... Well here I am again, being lazy with my blog that I like to document things on, no matter if you read or not :) I'm content with documenting for myself. 

Let's start with my birthday, New Year's Eve. :) 
 This is the "take a picture of me taking a picture of you" ever do that? NO? Okay, maybe i'm strange.
 Mark, he is a friend from High School...jeesh from 8years ago. Time flies
 "Wait Jo, didn't you see we weren't ready"- Brit & Sis
Me, Mark, Michelle & Lewis

We pretty much just hung out @ Mi Familias until 11ish & went somewhere else & did the count did for the new years with some champagne!!  I HATE champage, YUCK!
Needless to say, it was definitely a fun night. There isn't many pictures because of  you know.. we drank some and forgot about the camera!!

Anywho, its Wednesday and my second day off work. You may wonder why? BECAUSE OF ICE & SNOW!!!! In Texas? Work gets cancelled if it rains 2inches because everyone is use to 100degree weather :) Dontcha love us Texans?!

Gah! I didn't realize its been a couple of months since I last blogged. I'm sure I don't have readers BUT that's okay. This is just for me to document my life! I haven't been up to much anywho, just working & trying to stay healthy! That's my main goal. 

I can't believe Thanksgiving is around the corner! 2010 has definitely gone by so quickly, makes me older! I like the food that comes with holidays! ;) Does anyone have a good recipe for pies?? I would like to try something different this year, let me know!

So this past weekend, I met my Godmother. :) I know 24years later! I was born in Verden, Germany (Military brat) and my mom's BEST BEST FRIEND's husband was in the Military also. Well, her friend which is my Nina(godmother) left Germany, and they lost contact!!! So Janie (my Nina) found my mom on Facebook last Tuesday and her family treated us in San Antonio this past weekend and it was awesome! 
 This is Janie ( Nina) & myself.
 Mom, Janie, Myself & little sister Vicky
US girls on our way to see Janie!

 Such a small world huh? It was very exciting & she treated us sooo well. Such nice hospitality! Thank you Nina!!!!

San Antonio

KC & I absolutely love the riverwalk and the historic buildings in San Antonio. It is definitely a great place to tour. Not my style to live there, but definitely a neat place to go hang out on the weekends! Well we did go visit that place for Labor Day weekend, did we have a blast or what! Here are a few pictures from some of the missions we went to visit. 
 The above picture is almost my favorite. I love how vibrant the flowers were, very hardy plant. :)

 KC took the picture above, I think he did a fantastic job. He was down low to the ground and shot this picture. There was a storm coming in that day, it totally just fit picture taking of the old historic mission buildings. We really enjoyed our time.

We like each other, a lot. It's a good thing right? ;)
Enjoy y'alls week ahead!


I remember when I was a kid, I didn't want to go to the carnivals. I see why now. No offense to ANYONE out there, but really? The ones that do it here, I think are from up North... and they are insane. No kids want to go "shoot the gun" "win a prize" "toss rings"...etc. because they are, well you know. I didn't even wanna look at most of them because they would totally try and coax me to "come here". I'm out on that! But me and my mom did take my nephew Logan to go ride a few rides today. $25 wrist bands for 2hrs. =\ what a deal steal.
He is in the middle
In the blue, enjoying life.

Well, hello friends! I haven't posted in a little over two months! I didn't realize it was there long, but I guess so! It was a good summer, very hot here in Texas!
We were out on a friends boat for Memorial day weekend and used their RV while they went to Virginia for some type of national cheerleading deal :)

We have done quite a few cool things since I last posted. But I don't want to post it all at once. One day this summer, I came home to KC & Scotty planting this!!!! :)

I loved it, but too bad it sooo hott in Texas it just went CAPLUNK! Anywho, im going to get off of here and ill post more about our San Antonio trip another day :)

So, we totally had a blast camping. Some people don't like camping the "real" way, but I love it. I can be super girly, but then I have moments where I just want to forget about it and sweat... and IT'S OKAY! I promise.Don't freak out on me because i like to camp, okay? It's okay to sweat. It's okay to not sleep SUPER comfy. We had a 3 man tent and a blow up queen mattress, I think that's pretty good. It's a total blast. I can't wait to do it again. What's the next holiday, July 4th? ;)

*blogger is NOT letting me type in between my pictures at the moment*
So.. the orange cone- that greeted us as we pulled up to Lot #10. :) It was well reserved for us! How exciting is that. I loved it. I can't wait until we go camping it, it was such great fun. We hiked up to Gorman Falls. That's BEAUTIFUL!
This picture is of Colorado River (left) and the Gorman Falls-water- (right)
Look at the dramatic difference... do you see the line where the current is pushing the river water out? It's awesome. I love how it never mixes because of the current from the falls!!

That's our weekend getaway! Hope ya'll had a great one too!

Memorial Day weekend...

It is finally close to Memorial Day! We are excited about this, you know getting an extra day off. We get Monday off, of course. But, we are excited because KC, never gets off. If his boss could work him 24/7 7days a week, of course he would. But the good news is we are going to Gorman Falls (Colorado Bend State Park)- talk about STOKED!

These are just a couple of the pictures from the State Park. Doesn't it just seems so peaceful? We are "roughin'" it too!!! Camping, tent, out house toilets, COLD water to shower, 14miles of trails, hiking, fishing... it just sounds fun!

Enough of that! What have ya'll been up to lately? It seems like the economy around here has picked up quite a bit and i like it. I don't like sitting still at work and doing nothing, I would rather be busy!

This is all random, sorry! But a few weeks ago, we went to a guys place where he has like 30something old cars/trucks... but look at this SUV!!! WE love old trucks and cars.

I'm outta here, it's late and there is no supper here yet!!!

Spring 2011

I haven't really been keeping a secret because I really haven't mentioned much of this. But I am excited to announce: My huge news is we are saying " I DO!" next spring :) I am absolutely stoked. So I wanted to share some inspiration photos I have ran across recently...
So obviously, i'm shootin' for outside & Spring-ish. Where can a girl get those awesome aqua blue "Ball" mason jars? I have ONE! I want like 30. Maybe 40. There is a antique shop 15miles from here, but an 85 year-old-man owns it and knows the value of them... therefore they are priced for 18.95-20.00 dollars. This girl is NOT paying that much! So if you know, let ME know!

all the photos source is StylemePretty

 Oh, gosh. I love this! I love planning a once in a lifetime party. Crisp, lovely, romantic, vintage, bright, beautiful, cheerful party! I will be posting more. But if ya'll know of where I can find those mason jars, LET ME KNOW!

I can say I haven't posted in FOR-EVER! I have been so busy with work, church, visiting, hanging out... regular 'ol life. Let's see, since I logged on last, I have probably gained 15lbs. UGH! Got bugs in my house recently, and it's horrible!!! Had Mr. D come spray the house and now we are BUG-FREE!!! Doing some planning... I will have to show you some ideas I have come up with for my "planning". :)

I had to post this of Brightyn and I in the SUPER messy 2nd bedroom. The lighting is awful...everything in there!!! But I love her in this picture.. this is her "hug", and i'm okay with her stepping on my fabric to hug me! :)
My sister graduated TBI (Texas Bible Institue) May 1st! YAY! I'm so proud of my sister. Now she will continue HPU here, locally.
That's really been it lately. I just haven't taken pictures so much. I haven't done crafts, kinda lazy. But i'll be back! Take care ya'll!
