Brother’s Engagment Ceremony Trip

A few weeks ago the Hubby and I took a trip up to Chicago for my brother’s engagement ceremony.  His fiancee is Vietnamese and comes from a very traditional family.  So, our whole immediate family went to Chicago to participate in the ceremony. Continue reading


South Padre Island

Ahhhhhh!  Vacation.  Was there ever a nicer, more relaxing, word?  Since we had a three day weekend, the Hubby and I decided to take a spur of the moment trip down to South Padre Island, TX.  We had never been before, and I was missing the beach after 3 years of living in Texas.

Commencement Trip

Wow, oh wow. What a trip.  Just the thing I needed before starting my new job.  I was so proud to see my Hubby walk across the stage and get his Ph.D.  *sniff sniff.  They grow up so fast. Continue reading
