This past weekend we made a trip to San Diego to watch my nephew, Aaron Sanchez, play in the AFLAC All American Baseball Game between the East and the West. We stayed at the Hilton Bayside on the 25th floor. The views were outstanding! We decided to have dinner at Fred's Mexican Cafe in the Gaslamp Quarter. My hubby and I shared a chicken/steak fajita plate and was it ever good! We walked back to the Hilton and sat around the pool chatting. Saturday we took a trip to Pt. Loma, a place a used to go ALOT when my husband was stationed in San Diego years ago. From the point, you can see all the ships entering and leaving the harbor. There were a few times I was surprised to see the ship my husband was on, the USS Bainbridge, coming in early. This ship has now been scrapped but it was impressive in it's day!
Saturday was the day I figured out the game was Sunday, not Saturday. Umm, yeah, how could I have missed THAT! But heck, we were having the time of our lives so why worry about that. We would just have to stay another day (in paradise!!!). Lynn and her husband had a dinner to attend so we ventured out on our own looking for a place for dinner. Ended up at an Olive Garden in the Grossmont center. The food was good but the Berry Sangria was THE BEST. I think I should have made that my dinner. HERE'S a recipe if you want to try your hand at making some.


Our plans for Sunday included a trip to the
94th Aero Squadron Restaurant for brunch. Hands down this is the happening place for brunch. The food and atmosphere were awesome. We had a couple of pilots in our presence and they were in 7th heaven. We arrived at Petco park around 3 in the afternoon to get good seats and were surprised by our niece, Carla and her son Zack. It was just amazing to me to see my nephew, Aaron Sanchez, playing ball at such a big park, but I think this is just the beginning of such events. He is in the top 40 High School players in United States!!! Be sure to check out the link for him above and fish around for all the others.....and remember that name 'cause he's going to be FAMOUS!!! The following are just a few of the pictures we took while vacationing.

Grave's Disease

The Picture - Half Empty or Half Full? Many of you who know me know I've been fighting a battle with Graves' Disease for about a year and a half. It was diagnosed in February of 2007. I was so very sick back then I actually thought I was going to die! One of the main symptoms was a rapid heartbeat and mine was probably 110 beats a minute. I was put on Methimazole, about 40 mg. per day to knock down the worst of the symptoms. That has gradually been reduced until now my dose is 5 mg. a day. Then I got some really bad news this week, my numbers are beginning to rise again. My Dr. called on Wednesday and told me he wanted to do the radioactive iodine treatment. I just don't feel ready for that at all. He gave me until the 7th of November, my next appointment, to "see the numbers change". He says to take the medicine every other day and in two weeks go off it all together. Yeah, the numbers will change and it won't be for the better I'm sure. So, I went on the

Baby Shower Busy-ness

Ok, you probably thought I fell off the face of the earth right? Nope, there is just alot happening around here. The next event is Beckie's Baby Shower this Sunday. Decided to make my very first Diaper Cake and these are just a few of the pictures. The first thing I did was watch about 20 YouTube videos describing how to do it. Then I bought my supplies and put it together roughly first then more refined about a day later. This is a close up of the baby sock roses with mitten leaves. Yes, that video DOES exist! Next is a close up of wrist rattles and a little caterpiller radio that makes soothing sounds for baby. Background ribbon is from WalMart and the blanket set is from the Jungle Adventure Collection at K-mart. The topper for our "Jungle" themed cake is a Silver Back Ganz Gorilla . These little links slipped easily over the ribbon and added a little extra bling to the sides of the cake. Each layer consists of diapers along with extras like washcloths, bu

Patriotic Book Bag

My daughters and I love a challenge. So, back in late May we decided to take each other on in a $5 Dollar Store Challenge. We found inspiration over at Lindsay's Blog , Living With Lindsay. This is how this challenge goes. You shop your local Dollar Store spending no more than $5 on supplies. Then you put your purchases together, in a different way and make something brand new. You CAN use SOME supplies that you have on hand at your house already to complete it. For our challenge, we decided to put in that it would have to be something patriotic, red, white and blue, or something using 4 th of July type supplies, knowing that the completion date would be right around the first of July. I walked in the door of the store about a month ago and found some really nice, thick placemats like these. The ones I picked up were red and white stripes with a blue star pattern. I was already thinking a purse of some kind so I knew I would need about 3; one for each side and one to cut up for
