Happy New Year’s Eve!

Today has been a great day so far, and it’s only going to get better!  First… a bump shot.  (I know that I really need to get someone else to take these pictures, and I will start doing that just as soon as Amazon ships me my camera charger.  My nice camera has been collecting […]

Lola plans for Baby Poppyseed!

Well, I said I’d wait until I was 6 months pregnant, and past the holidays, before I’d begin on Poppyseed’s nursery.  Meaning… the time has (almost) come! So… for my next post, I’m going to post some things that have caught my eye over the past 6 months or so.  Today, however, I have to […]

Why Lola and Oatmeal may spend Christmas overseas next year.

Happy holidays everyone… I genuinely hope that all of you had a very happy, low key, loving Christmas with your families and loved ones.  We certainly did. When I started dating Oatmeal, it was the week of Halloween.  After a few weeks, I asked him what his plans were for Christmas.  I was really just […]

Lola always has enjoyed making Christmas lists.

I used to LOVE making my Christmas list for Santa.  I believed in Santa Claus until I was about 16.  (I’m actually not exaggerating TOO much.)  I was definitely sad to find out that he wasn’t really making the rounds around the world in one night.  I can’t wait to continue this tradition with Poppyseed […]

23 weeks pregnant… and what we’ve been up to.

Well hello there. How was your day?  Mine was just dandy.  I got up at 5am and left my house by 6am.  I drove to a far corner of my territory and took one of my favorite customers some breakfast tacos.  Which I ate one of.  This is against my primal/paleo diet (because the flour […]

The Trishas first offical music video!

The Trishas first offical music video! I’m so excited for my SIL, Jamie Wilson.  Jamie is Oatmeal’s little sister, the youngest of the Griffin clan.  She (like the rest of her siblings) went to A&M, and while in college she bought a guitar and starting teaching herself to play it.  She wrote some songs and […]

1 year down…. infinity to go!

Sunday was Lola and Oatmeal’s 1 year anniversary.  I truly can’t believe it. It’s gone by SOOOOO fast.  We actually did not plan anything to celebrate, because we are waiting until Friday to go on a little mini-trip.  I have never been to the Alamo (gasp!) and so we decided to go to San Antonio […]

This time last year….

I was about to get married. It was December 10, 2010. I took the day off. I finished decorating the Cat Spring Ag Hall. I picked up my wedding gown. My family, friends, and soon-to-be husband met at the church, and we “rehearsed.”  I wore a white satin dress, which I already regret, but it […]

21 weeks, 3 days. The all black, loose flowy clothes make it look a lot more slim than it really is.

No Problems Here! And Lola apologizes.

I just ran into my doctor’s office between calls and got to hear good news. Absolutely nothing showed up on my culture. No bacterial growth at all. So what’s the verdict? Probably a popped blood vessel in the bladder, or maybe some microscopic kidney stones that are simply too small to feel. So…. I’m good […]
