I have not been on the blog for sometime now. I'm going to try to start back or start all together. I've decided I want to try to make these yard covered hangers that my grandmother use to make. So I'm going to try this and give them has gifts for Christmas (maybe) if I don't give up out of frustration. I found this blog and I'm going to give it a try.

Wish me luck and I'll keep you posted!

January Jam at JJ's

I love January in Rocky Point, Mexico! I'm headed down for the January Jam at JJ’s Cantina in Cholla Bay. Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers will be performing. Its one weekend a year that I go down and stay with my brother. It's just Rick and I together for the weekend. Its a party for three days and nights. Going from house to house that sit on the cliffs with million dollar views. Great people that have become my friends. I'm not known as Mary Ann, I'm known as Rick's sister and thats okay with me. I hear that Roger has some new songs that I can't wait to hear. But I know he'll play on of my favorites, Your Name on a Gain of Rice.

I hope Rick and I can keep this going for many years to come.

Chicken Tortilla Soup

I just love The Pioneer Woman. I want to make her Chicken Tortilla Soup. Here is the link for it.

New Year!

I've decided to start the new year out a little different. I want to do things and go places and just have some fun!

What I'm I going to do with my 25 year old daughter?

I think to myself "what am I going to do with my daughter"

My 25 year old calls me on the phone and this is how the conversation goes.

"Mom, I need you to come down to PetSmart and adopt this dog for me. It looks just like Rooster and I want him." (Rooster is a dog that we had when she was little) "Why do I need to adopt the dog for you?" "Well, I told them about Moose (roommates' dog) and they want to meet him to see if they'll get along" "Wait a minute, why do I have to do this? We have three dogs" Her response "Well you can lie about the dogs, they won't know" My reply "First off I will not lie for you about the dog. Second, honey you need to think about this. You work full-time, go to school at night, your trying to get into the nursing program plus trying to get a new job at the hospital. You need to stop and think about what is fare to you and the dog."

I did not adopt the dog. I didn't teach her to lie either.

I know I broke her heart and she was disappointed that I wouldn't do this for her. When she bought her house last year I promised her that when I thought she was ready for a dog I would get it for her. I have know problem sticking to that. But, if she was honest with herself she'd realize that I'm saving her from a huge headache.

Now tell me what 25 year old that owns her own home and has two roommates, one that came with a dog would want to take this on with her schedule?

So I guess I'm the worst mom on the block today!

I'll keep you posted on the out come of the dog...

A BIG thank you goes out to my friend Jenn (Mama Schell) for helping me get my blog started! I couldn't have done it without all you help. We really need to go have those drinks.
Thank you so much, MA

Las Vegas here we come...

Well tomorrow morning Eddie and I leave for Las Vegas. Some friends of ours are getting married. It's hot in Phoenix and its just as hot there. Our friends are getting married in the desert, a place called Valley of Fire. So okay... I'm going from one hot place to another. One of the highlights is I'm going to see one of my best friends since grade school. I can't wait to see her. I'll post more about my trip later.
By for now!
