Mother's Day Gift Guide


We began our weekend on Friday by taking Lucy and her Mama out to lunch.  We went to Bistro 31, one of my favorites.  The day was picture-perfect, and we sat out on the covered patio.  It worked out to be the ideal location because it held a direct escape route in case things hit the fan.

The Friday Files


I hope you had a great week.  No big news around here.  We are headed to Dallas this morning to take our #1 and Lucy to lunch.  This is Adorable Jonathon's first week back to work.  Our #1 tells us that there were some touch-and-go moments, but all is well in their nest.

M is for Monogram


I hope that you had a good weekend.  Did you see the eclipse? It got very dark here.  At the sky's darkest point,  the Mister celebrated the big moment by running out to pick up his dry cleaning.

I hope that you had a good week. The weather has been picture-perfect.  My two favorite seasons in Texas are Spring and Fall.

I am happy to report that Computergate has concluded.  My weapon of choice is now a product from Dell.  It is off to a good start.  It arrived within 24 hours.

Prime Time


I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Ours got off to a rough start.  Good Friday turned into Bad Friday when my computer crashed on Friday morning.

I hope that you had a good week.  I am happy to say that I checked off everything on my to-do list.  I even helped the Mister check off one important item on his list.

Designer of the Day: Whitney McGregor

I hope you had a good weekend.  The highlight of ours was lunch with our friends, who also happen to be Adorable Jonathon's parents.  While the guys chatted about tools and cars, Mrs. A and I concentrated on one subject—Lucy, Lucy, Lucy!

Spring Things


I hope you had a good weekend. I met two of my friends, Paige and Cynthia, for lunch at Joey's, my latest favorite restaurant.  It was their inaugural visit and I have a feeling that they will be back.

I hope that you had a good week.  All is well here.  Thank you for your feedback on pet insurance.  We decided to get it and are still researching which lucky company will get our business.

A Piece of the Hodgepodge Pi

How was your weekend? We kicked ours off at a lovely birthday party at one of the most beautiful homes in the village. The guest of honor and her hubby are so darling. Our accomplished hostess with the mostess outdid herself.

The Friday Files

I hope you had a good week. We stopped in a couple of times to get a little Lucy lovin'. We dropped off some of the Mister's cooking one day and picked up lunch on another.  It's amazing how much an infant changes with each day. You can tell I haven't been around babies for a while.

Prime Time

Did you have a good weekend? Ours was productive. We ran some errands, and the Mister did a lot of cooking. We are bringing some meals down to our girls and AJ. And while we're at it... I'm going to squeeze in some Lovey time with Lucy and Lemmy.

Lights, Camera, Lucy!


Lucy has arrived! The new Mama's water broke at 1:30AM on Wednesday morning, and we all sang Hallelujah!

Pillow Talk


In case you are wondering, we are still on baby watch.  Every morning, we get up at 5AM, and the first thing we do is check our Mama-to-be's location.  We talk to her every evening, and she is feeling great.  She told me that she loves being pregnant, but she can't wait to meet Lucy.

It has been warm enough to spend some time out on the patio.  Nobody is happier than Miss Millie.

I hope that you had a good week.  All is well here.  We are still on baby watch.  While our Mama-to-be is getting restless, our little Lucy seems to be getting more comfy in her little nest.

Speaking of nests, I took some pics of the nursery last weekend.  Coco from Beck Interiors helped our Mama-to-be design this darling room.

My Favorite Reader Tanya

I hope that you had a good weekend.  We met our dear friends, Miss Deb and Sir Rex, at my new favorite restaurant, Joey's

They enjoyed our favorite appetizer, hummus and tzatziki, with crispy pita chips, as much as we did.  As always, it was great fun catching up.

Did you have a good Valentine's Day week?  The Mister and I celebrated at one of our favorite hotspots, R&D Kitchen.  Thirty-four years ago today, the Mister became the luckiest guy in the world when he popped the question in NYC.  I played hard to get - it took me half a millisecond to say yes.

After lunch, we stopped by to see #2 and check in on Lemmy, who had been spayed last week.  I am happy to report she is healing nicely, is back to her old self,  and is cone-free during the day.

What We've Been Watching


I hope that you had a wonderful weekend.  Did your team win?  We met our dear friends, The Adorables, for lunch on Saturday.  On Sunday, we laid low and spent most of the day reading our books and watching a little bit of the Super Bowl.

I don't know about you, but this week just whipped by.  That usually doesn't happen during my least favorite month of the year.

I played pickleball for the first time in 3 months!  I took some time off so that my fellow picklers could catch up to my razor-sharp skills and state-of-the-art form.

Evidently, they spent their extra practice time honing their cheating skills.

I am thrilled to welcome Shannon back to this series.  You can read her first post here.  I met Shannon through my dear friend, Annie, who is her aunt.  Annie also contributed to this series.  You can read her post here
