Almost four months have passed since I have seen my beautiful daughter Megan :( Even though we chit chat, text & email daily ... It's just not the same as being together in person! Oh how I envy all you Mothers that live near your daughters! I'm looking forward to four exciting days with Megan!

The old one was getting really blurry.... so much so that we thought we needed to have our eyes checked!

We finally got rid of our GIANT box TV and replaced it with this slim 3D sony! We also picked up a blue ray DVD, amplifier & speakers for surround sound :)
Once Stephen had seen a football game in 3D he was hooked!
I can't wait to watch The Royal Wedding on our new viewing apparatus ...wouldn't it be so totally cool if the United Kingdom would broadcast the wedding in 3D?


Our Oklahoma climate simply adores ferns of any kind.... humidity!

We had a HAIL storm late night before Easter morning! We actually woke up scared from the bombardment ...It felt like we were being bombed! Between the thunder & lightning and the large marble size hail ...We heard glass breaking! But atlas, it must have been our neighbors because we were still intact when Stephen checked! Of course, we were worried about hail damage to our cars (We unfortunately have no garage).... but all was well when we awoke at sunrise on Easter!

Within a few days, all of our Knock Out Roses bloomed and the contrast with the new lush springtime green seems just beautiful to behold to our eyes! I would estimate that we have well over two trillion roses in bl00m :) All over the back yard!

I haven't really started my spring/summer planting as of yet.... the pansies are burgeoning so majestically from their sleep! They labored through the winter! Why should I replace them with a summer annual so soon? I will let them live until the hot summer sun calls them back!
After I get back from visiting my sweet daughter Megan in Los Angeles, that's when I will happily start digging in the dirt!
Dillan's spending the night and I have some packing to do.... a mani/pedi appt and a big time hairdo appt.... just gotta go to California at my best! I'm really looking forward to seeing Zach and his parents, Meg's friends and anyone and everyone I meet on my adventure!

What Could Be Sweeter?

Than cuddling on the big bed with your iphones? Stephen got a new iphone and was happy to give Dillan his old one! It still has all the apps that she loves! Perfect!

Our New Car Is ...


The trip to Dallas to get the car went smoothly! We are still marveling at all the special features this new Land Rover has compared to our old one!
L3 Lux ....yes!

Going To A Birthday Party :)

Last Saturday we took Dillan to Sophie & Connors birthday party! We first stopped at PBK for gifts and some hip sunglasses for Dillan!

Lady Ga Ga Tonight!

I've been listening to Lady Ga Ga music all day and watching her videos! I've been resting up for the big night with Chickie Baby by my side! We have dinner reservations at The Chaulkboard! I just can't figure out what to wear?????

Ahhhh ....Springtime!

There Is Nothing Sweeter Than Seeing....

The sweetest Grandpa in the world sitting next to his Grand Daughter eating Gummy Bears! It's true!

Giraffe... Having a coat patterned with brown patches separated by lighter lines!

A giraffe sofa walked into our living room on Friday morning April 1st, April Fool's Day! A Joke?

When looking for fabric to reupholster our down sofa in the living room I didn't look long! I brought home this sample of a giraffe pattern and Stephen and I both laughed out loud and smiled and said, "Why Not?" !!!!

We are probably a professional interior designer's nightmare! But our home is full of all sorts of crazy fun things that somehow come together because? Well because..... it's our happy stuff!
Success to a happy marriage... agree!

This was a decision that "Both Of Us" agreed upon.... a funny "Giraffe" sofa! A very tiny two year old came over today (Dillan) and Abuelo asked her what she thought of the new sofa and she replied, "It's very stylish Abuelo!" That did it for us.... it's definitely the coolest sofa in all of Fashionable Utica Square!

New Hats Off To Stephen!

It has been said of Eric Javits that he does not just design accessories, he celebrates women. The Eric Javits look is instantly recognizable for its down to earth glamour. His trademark is elegance with gentility married to function. Eric's use of advanced fibers and his creative talent have made Hat wearing viable for the 21st. Century!

Stephen and I did lunch up in Fashionable Utica and then we dropped off my fur coat at Miss Jackson's for summer storage ... coming down the elevator to the first floor we just magically appeared in front of some of Eric Javits new springtime hats! I just couldn't resist trying some of them on and then lo and behold.... my handsome husband offered to buy me one! I LOVE it :)

Silver Metallic Land Rover LRS LUX

Stephen is flying down to Dallas Texas this week to pick up his new car :)
