Not-So-Sunday Find!

Art Description:
The Good News of Salvation! “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me,Because the LORD has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are bound Isaiah 61:1

So I stumbled upon this artist today. He is amazing! I love abstract art, but his has Biblical inspirations behind each peace! He is an amazing witness to the art community! Just thought I'd share!

The Pressures of Blogging

You know when something happens, or you have an amazing moment either where you begin to understand a situation you are in, or there is an incredible amount of emotion that needs to pour out?

No words... No eloquent way of describing this moment... Just me understanding the thoughts that have raced through my mind, the things that have weighed so heavy on my heart... and until I put them into words, I feel disconnected and still uneasy...

This is my problem. I yearn to write... to get things off my chest... to be completely honest with myself and God... but I sit down to share, and I hit a dead end.

Maybe I don't have enough time to write everything I am feeling...
Maybe I am overwhelmed with all the emotions I want to share, and don't know where to begin...
Maybe I feel I wont give justice to what I am writing about, the subject deserving more than just random thoughts from Tami...
Maybe I feel I don't have it completely figured out...

Whatever the reason, the hesitation, I have been writing "easy" posts if you will. No depth, no emotion...

That's why I love posting pictures! It's easy!

This is a start! I will make an effort to blog about things that are actually meaningful to at least me, that is why I started a blog in the first place!

Just don't expect more than one a week! (you know who you are!)

The Zoo

The Zoo Was Fabulous!

It totally lived up to my expecatations except for a few slow walkers and too many heat complaints! We are in Houston, yeah, it's hot!

For some reason I remember it bigger, I'm glad its not, but crazy enough I kinda felt like "that's it"? I know Addison on the other hand was totally overwhelmed with every moment being filled with a new experience! We started off in the Aquarium, she was so excited staring into the glass as fish passed by! She screamed and ran in place to show her enthusiasm!

Next, it was onto the birds... not so cool... and the hooved animals... again not real exciting, but Addison pressed on intently, like she new there was something amazing ahead!

We got to the Childrens' Zoo which was probably the best part! They have a small water park Addison would have enjoyed if we had her bathing suit, and they have a petting zoo full of sheep. There is a little covered park area and other random animals in this part as well.

So, below is Addison checking out one of God's other beautiful creechers!

"How you doin'?"

They were both totally flirting with each other! Daddy didn't see it, thank goodness!

We were sure to see the elephants and giraffes. The monkeys were okay, but anything you have to try to find in a cage, loses our attention pretty quickly!

BTW- the gift shop is great too!!

We were all exhausted and ready for a nap by noon! Josh and I have decided to make this a yearly tradition!

~Thanks Ashlee~

Oh Yeah, I meant to personally thank Ashlee for helping me get out of the mundane! I am sorry if any of you are still there, but try to spice up your page! Ask Ashlee if you need help!

It's the Weekend!

I am so excited the weekend is here! Not that I had a bad week, just a full one! Saturday we are going to the Houston zoo! That's right, Addison's first time at the zoo! Are we crazy for taking her at such a young age? She is only 16 months, but she is so observant and interested in the world around (except for when it comes to learning her countries)! She loves animals (she calls most of them puppy) and she has been learning names and sounds, so what a perfect weekend event, especially since the weather is supposed to be wonderful (still hot, but no rain) and she gets to share this new experience with her Mimi, Abuelita and Papa Joe! Can't wait to share the pictures! Have a great Memorial day weekend!

The Office

I love my job! There are so many cool things about what I do, I plan on sharing them periodically! Today, you are going to get a look into where I work! Yes, about 1/3 of the time I am out on job sites or meeting with vendors, but the other 2/3's I am here... in the building shown below!

This is not your typical office building! That is why I love it! It is an old warehouse conversion, there is a residence, architect's office and another office that I have not fgured out exactly what they do... and Croix Custom Homes! We are right off of Main street just past the Univeristy of Houston downtown Campus (Just in case someone wants to bring lunch!!!). About 3 minutes from Minute Maid Park.

This is kinda embarassing, but its' my desk! Guess I was busy the day I took the picture! Excuse the mess! We actually just put another little table behind my desk to give me some more work space... I promise it's not always like this. Half the time I am in the showroom (not pictured) with buyers or putting together the Spec houses.
Later, I will post some pictures of our current projects!
I know you can't wait! Thanks for acting interested!
