We’re back, and recouping from theme parks and miniature golf. There are more photos on my flickr. These were all taken by Jered, Garth’s brother. So much fun coming this week! xoxo moi.

I’m a play at home wife. I don’t really deserve a vacation, but I guess that Garth does, so off we go this morning to Orlando for a few days. It should be super great fun (even though when I checked he weather last night it looks like it’s going to be in the 90’s […]


they’re called camellias

These are blooming like crazy in our backyard. The landlord said that they were planted by the original owner who was a member of the Pensacola Camellia Club in the 1950’s. They are amazing. It took me an hour to find them on the web- these are what they are not: camilla, chamila, and camillia. […]

Here’s a quick summation of the fun that was had. We went sledding. We celebrated Christmas in Spokane, WA. We celebrated Abraham’s […]

I am being seduced by this city. I moved here in October. I have yet to visit the beach, or the art museum…but I can tell you where all of the Wal*Marts are. Screwy. It’s a testament to me that I need to prioritize a little better and in doing so this week I tasked […]

December 19th, 2007 No Comments

Garth and I were wandering around festive downtown Pensacola the other night and spotted several little angels, cardboard wings and sparkly pipe-cleaner halo included, headed towards a church with open doors. We decided to peek inside, and found St. Michael Interparochial School’s Christmas Pageant. It was adorable. The church was beautiful, and the parents were […]

Shopping carts here are called “buggies” 55 degrees F is “frigid” Men shy away from shaking my hand (I AM a woman, after all) The coolest hangout around is your own front porch When it rains, it really does pour Two or more people are referred to as “ya’ll” Parades are really just an excuse […]

One of my photos was recently published by an online city guide, Schmaps. It’s of my favorite street in San Diego, the Laurel Street Bridge that leads right into Balboa Park, also called La Prado. It’s so beautiful! Here’s a widget provided to me by the site. =) and yeah, Tzenni-Bah- that’s your arm! You’re […]

Yesterday Garth returned home from work before I was even out of bed (relax folks, it was like 8 in the morning) and he brought me breakfast in bed (cocoa crispies topped off with whipped cream and a hershey’s kiss). He’s amazing. He’s more than I expected…and I’m often told that my expectations are too […]
