Not able to make any of these events but still want to participate? Supporting our cause HERE. Like the varieties of breast sizes, all donations, big or small, make an impact in breast cancer research. [PS - Our March raffle is going on as well - $10 gets you in!]

Two night stay in a luxury tower suite at La Toretta Lake Resort and Spa on Lake Conroe

$50 = 5 “tickets”
$100 = 10 “tickets”

I am currently at 78% of my $2,500 goal – I appreciate the support from all of my friends and family, near and far.

With your help, we will be one step closer to helping women and men get the treatment that is much needed and help fund research. We are In It to End It, Are You?

St. Patrick's Day Crescent Cinnamon Rolls

I was on Pinterest [it's kind of like "What had happened was..." of the blogger/crafter world].

I was on Pinterest and saw a yummy picture of crescent cinnamon rolls, however, it was not linked to the recipe so I did some digging around the interwebs and found it here and repinned it for future use… today!

As you can see, I added 1-2 tablespoons of green powder tint to the icing to make it extra special for St. Patrick’s Day. I also used salted butter and reduced fat crescents, you have to give a little and take a little ;)

C loved them, I believe she would have scooped all 8 crescents up if we had left the kitchen for even a second after they were ready to eat. If she loves something, you know it’s good!

I hope you are having and EXTRA lucky day today! Happy St. Patrick’s Day from the H Family!

Austin 2012

This past weekend we headed over to Austin and San Antonio for a fantastic two days of activities; it’s spring break!

Our itenerary was filled with fun and food, two of our families favorite things, like cave tours, cruising around on segways and zip lining.

Natural Bridge Caverns, San Antonio, Tx We took the Discovery Tour, the Passages was sold out when we got there, it was really cool to listen to the kids [guides] explain the different geological forms and how the caves were made; it was VERY fun and educational. It ws really steep and tight in some areas that we went through and the natural spring waters flow freely from the roof onto the floors, I would not recommend this for families requiring walking assistance or toting babies in strollers.

Gliding Revolution, Austin, Tx Holy Cow, have you done a segway tour yet? It is pretty awesome, however, it took me the longest to get used to the machine. We toured Austin while SxSW and the Girl Scouts 100 year celebration was happening, so we were right in the middle of hundreds of big and little people at many points; we survived. Our tour guide was borderline amazing, you have to give them a call and take a tour if you are EVER in Austin!

Cypress Valley Canopy Tours, Spicewood, Tx This place is pretty pricey, but C loved it SO much, so it was definitely worth the dollars to create memories with her. Our tour guides Bailey and Eric were super cool and knew a lot about the cypress trees we were flying through. There were about 6 zip lines and two sky bridges to cross, the tour took almost two hours. They have a pond to swim in afterwards if you desire, picnic tables, tether ball and a relaxing hammock. They book relatively small groups so all this is available with little interruption to your families plans.

Luling Barbque, Luling, Tx Yum, C and I had the chopped beef sandwich and B had the sliced beef sandwich, I’d say these are pretty much their best items on the menu because they were delicious. Umm, their sweet tea just about had me hopped up for the rest of the day, that’s good tea right there.

Ritas on the River, San Antonio, Tx Cold drinks, hot queso, tasty mexican food and PLENTY of people watching, need I say more?

Milto’s Medeterranian Cafe, Austin, Tx Talk about good pizza, salad and service! I had a Greek salad and Spanikopita served with a cool tjatzeekee sauce, if you like spinach, cheese and egg, you will love this dish. My two compadres, however, had cheese pizza and salad… live a little people ;)  Our friends from Gliding Revolution suggested we try this place out, so thanks for the love GR, much appreciated!

What did your Spring Break 2012 look like? Were you able to squeeze in a moment of fun and relaxation?

Conversations With C

Yesterday it took us 2 hours and 24 minutes to get home from we were driving home from C’s place of scholastic business [we live 50 miles apart]. It was the looongest drive home EVER in the sense of our booties being in one place for a lot longer than we had prepared them for. Stinkin’ rain. 

Experts say long trips are when you have captive audience, so without further ado: 

[Just coming in to traffic, about 14 miles from school, 36 miles from home]
C: I’m going to take a nap.

A: Me too. [ I shut my right eye and keep the left eye open and coast with traffic]

C: HEY! You can’t sleep and drive.

[I turn my face so she sees I have one eye open]

C: Oh, hah.

C: Chinese fire drill?


C: Ok!

A: No, what if one of us slips and falls on the wet concrete and we cant drive to the house? Then all these people around us would have to wait on us.

C: I’ll drive.

A: You can’t drive, it’s raining.

C: I can’t drive because its raining? Continue reading »
