Seriously guys?

When it rains it pours. Isn't that how the saying goes? Well, it's true. It seems like the men in my family and Jacob's family are determined to hurt themselves before the wedding. Here are a few things that have been happening around here.

1. The father of the bride breaks his neck waterskiing while daughter is vacationing in China.

2. The great-grandfather of the groom starts a house fire by putting a bowl of sugar in the microwave to dry it out. I know what you're thinking, why'd he do that? The answer: because he's Pappy.

2a. The great-grandfather of the groom is informed that he has blisters/burns on his head from the fire. He is hospitalized that day.

3. The grandfather of the bride begins to experience extreme pain in his back while at a wedding. He lands in the ER that night. The back pain turns into knee pain. He can no longer straighten his legs. They begin to become swollen since he can not lay down. He has been sitting in a chair all day and night for weeks.

4. The father of the groom/best man decides he is superman and can roll hay in the Texas heat all day. He is admitted to the hospital 2 days later with pneumonia.

5. The groom is away from home for 7 weeks. Well, he's not hurt, but it's sad.

Delicious and Nutritious!

Angel Food cake with sugared strawberries. Delish! I made this cake out of an HEB box mix and it turned out perfectly!

Happy birthday Katie!

Missin my honey

Well I am missing Jacob, but he'll be back before I know it. This is his ride out to the rig off the coast of Namibia, Africa. He's now sailing around the coastline of Brazil with a destination of Trinidad. They'll make a short stop there and then head to Curacao. Hopefully he'll get some play time in both of those beautiful destinations.

I was a busy lady last Saturday! I think I sweat enough to fill two wheelbarrows. OK that makes me sound gross, but it was so HOT! First thing Saturday morning, I mowed the lawn. Next, I began digging a hole to plant this beautiful avacado tree that Vishal and Poonam gave me. It's doing so well. :)

Next, I dug up two shrubs in the front yard that I wanted to move. Here's one of them that I moved to the backyard to hide the electrical box. Digging this hole was a monster. My poor little sharp shooter and shovel almost bit the dust. This was the last thing I did on Saturday and I almost passed out from heat exhaustion multiple times. There were many water and Gatorade breaks that day.
