Dear Darla, I hate your stinking guts…

We interrupt the never-ending Texan Adventure to bring you some Valentine greetings on this the week of Valentine’s Day. I think I’ve stated this before… I’m not a huge fan of V-Day but I am a fan of seasonal decorating and what else are you supposed to do during those cold and bitter months following the holidays? Once those Christmas decorations come down the place just looks depressing. As a side note… why is it I’m perfectly happy with my every day home decor all throughout the year but once I un-deck the halls in January I feel I have nothing to fill all those empty spaces with? Where did all that stuff go? Did I just forget where everything went? It’s a mystery. Anyway, since it’s still a little too early to start digging out the Easter eggs I’ve resorted to hearts, well not too many hearts.


Mexican Fiesta

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015


Well, here I am again, ready to report on Day Four of our Texan Adventure. I had really planned on getting us all out of Texas before the end of January but once again I have failed miserably. It’s been a month, I do believe we have overstayed our welcome at the Newman Hacienda.

So, without further ado, Day Four. In case you hadn’t noticed, the title of this post is once again food related. No traditional German delicacies this time around, this time we went south of the border. Practically the minute we walked in the house a request was made for my brother-in-law Steve’s famous enchiladas. We knew when we planned out the week that Steve would need the majority of a day to prepare our Mexican Fiesta so we didn’t really plan any major outings. But that doesn’t mean we didn’t go on any outings. Once again we divided up Mennonite style, the boys headed off to deal with some vehicle issues and we of course headed off for some more shopping.
