Mexican shrimp cocktail

Couldn't let summer go by without making this

It's easy peasy and so


I just made some fresh pico de gallo, added some avocado, drizzled some lime juice, sprinkled some hot cocktail sauce, and tossed in shrimp.

Nothing to it.

Back-yard make-over Part 2

Although I'm not done, I wanted to share some of the pictures of the landscaping I have done.  I can't wait for these trees and bushes to grow. I still want to add a water feature somewhere, more plants and perhaps some type of brick edging or pavers.  But, I had to stop.  With triple digit temperatures there is no way I could continue.

Believe me when I say It's been HOT and DRY here.

And keeping the grass from getting crunchy has been a challenge.

My water bill is ginormous I cringe every time I see it

I pray for rain daily.
at this point a weak tropical depression would be nice.
This project will just have to wait till the fall...

To be continued....

New Cannon Rebel Camera

I got my husband new Cannon a while back and it has been so much fun taking candid pictures of Tealyn  like a real "pro".  At first I have to say it was a little intimidating with so many different settings and options to choose from but, I think I'm learning really fast. If I do say so myself.

Here are some of my shots.

I wanted to capture her sweet chubby arms..

Okay okay, I also take pictures of other stuff too. ha ha

I love, love love this camera. Definitely worth every penny.
