Laundry Room of My Dreams

These are the laundry rooms of my dreams...

Well, this one is actually a kitchen, but you get the general idea...

My laundry room doesn't even come close to these, but that's all about to change...I can't wait!

Pictures I Love...

Jacob on the Pitcher's Mound

Tim Smith, surrounded by the Ramirez & Smith boys

Jacob giving Kyson a bottle while Kadyn patiently
waits for him to finish so they can play.

Yep, we finally made it to Disney World!

My niece Holly, Me, one of my BFFs Terri, and my SIL Cathy

My cousin Kim, My (pregnant) sister Sarah, Me and my cousin Debby

On the Disney shuttle, headed to the Magic Kingdom.
Our hearts were racing!
It was all we could do to sit still.

We believe!

Anything can happen at Disney!

I Surprised my sister by showing up unexpectedly at her ASU graduation party in 12/08. I hid in the back of my brother's SUV and this is the picture I snapped of Sarah when she saw me.

Adam loves to make sugar cookies with frosting...almost as much as he loves eating them!

Celebrated my good friend Jennifer's 40th birthday in May '09 with dinner and dancing.

Turtle Rescue

I found this cute little guy trying to cross the road today. Naturally, I pulled over, got out and put the turtle in a plastic container that I just happen to carry around in the event that I need to rescue a turtle. I think he's a box turtle, but what do I know?

My Arizona-dwelling sister, Sarah and brother-in-law, Bret have a pet desert tortoise. A few weeks ago, while my sister was on vacation, her turtle somehow flipped itself over onto its back and had a close brush with death as a result. Apparently there is actually a difference between turtles and tortoises.

For instance, a desert tortoise can't do this....

Is that cool or what?!!

No turtles (or tortoises) were harmed in the making of this video. The above-mentioned turtle has been safely released into the woods behind our house.

And yes, Casey, one of my birthday wishes did come true. I found the Christopher Lowell desk, matching shelf and small filing cabinet on craigslist!!! When my office is cleaned up, I'll take a photo and share my exciting find. I'm still waiting for the Lexus, however.

Mother's Day/Birthday Wish List...continued

The Christopher Lowell Shore Home Collection would be the perfect complement to my coastal inspired office. Willie, just in case you're reading, you can find it here.

One more thing, as long as I'm calling this a wish list...

from here.
Of course, my husband would have to actually read my blog for this to work...

How to celebrate a new year Ramirez style

I've waited so long to complete this post that I don't want to procrastinate a minute longer even though it lacks captions and stories. So, enjoy the picture (and video) show of our new year's trip to Ruidoso, NM to visit family and ski Apache.

Things I love about Kansas City (the seasons)

Kansas City really is the perfect place to live if you want to experience a change in seasons without being miserably hot in the summer or buried in snow all winter. It's hard for me to say whether I enjoy spring or fall more. Watching the leaves change colors, a slight nip in the air and roasting marshmallows over backyard firepits are something I look forward to each October. This past fall, I took a series of pictures of the same tree in our backyard over a period of two and a half weeks so I could share what we experience here with our friends and family who live in the Southwest.

Admittedly, when the trees are bare and brown, the grass is dormant and all the flowers are dead, it's not very pretty here...until the first snowfall.
