A good portion of my life has been spent playing the piano for everyone else's diva moments. Now it's my turn. I invite you to accompany ME through my life's diva and, well, not so diva-like moments. It'll be entertaining. Promise.

Delores, The Garden Queen


Every Saturday Kaylee and I weed the garden, and on Monday, Delores the Garden Queen comes while Kaylee's at school and leaves a note and a dollar for our bags of weeds. (Don't think I'm clever enough to think this up - I found it in Family Circle). Well, today Kaylee decided to write Delores a note and leave it for her to pick on Monday. Ah, the world of a child...!

Vote for Kaylee!

Well, in case you've been wondering why I haven't been posting lately, it's because I have become a bargain freak. Now I'm trying to get a gift certificate for Great American Cookies from KRIS missing tooth contest. So here's the link - paste it in your browser then click on one of the stars to vote for her. http://www.kristv.com/Global/story.asp?S=9153197&nav=menu192_7_4 You can only vote once from the same computer.

In other bargain news, I have found a new website thanks to the Oprah show called Couponmom.com, and let me tell you, it is FABULOUS! Bargains, bargains, bargains! I am learning so much about how to save and I am loving it! Now, I know there are those of you out there who will say, "Coupons, oh please, I just end up spending more buying stuff I didn't need to begin with." Good point; HOWEVER, if you are someone who has self discipline when it comes to shopping, you really can save! I love getting a deal - just love it!

Happy bargain hunting!

Yes, Leaves DO Change Color in Corpus!


I was so excited to walk out in the backyard last night and see these beautiful colors on our tree! It almost made me feel like I live in a place where there is a fall season! Almost... :)

Hurricane Ike Photos from Galveston


Last Saturday my schweetie went to Galveston to help with the clean-up effort from Hurricane Ike. He went with about 5 guys from our ward, who were part of a larger stake organization from the Corpus area. He left about 4 in the morning and got back around 10 or so that night. Long day of hard work. They got to the Stake Center in Galveston and he said the cultural hall was so organized. On one wall they had bottles of water stacked, on another wall tools you could check out, on another something else...Anyway, they gave them an area to go to and they were just supposed to look for someone who needed help. So they drove to the area and found a lady about our age outside of her home and asked if she needed help. She said she was pulling down drywall and after they said they were there to help with that sort of stuff she got this really suprised look on her face and accepted the help. They spent all day at her home pulling all the drywall out - the water had come to the ceiling. They also moved furniture out of the home. These pictures are from 4 hours away from us, so we really lucked out this time.
