Val Learns to Ride

For the 4th of July Val learned how to learn a motorcycle, I started my own business, and we made pasties for dinner. Might have been the best 4th ever!

This will be the summer of Many Pounds.

I made this today for dessert. Super easy, turned out quite yummy too.

Strawberry Pie

1 1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons corn starch
1 cup sugar
1/4 strawberry jello
~4 cups strawberries
cooked pie crust

Bring water, corn starch, and sugar to a boil and boil for 1 minute while constantly stirring. Remove from heat, add jello. Cool for 1 hour.

Wash and slice strawberries, throw them in pie crust. Pour gelatinous mixture over the berries, cool for 2 hours.

Great for a hot summer day!

Do you know what these are?

Those are the marbles from two Ramune drinks. I'm going to start collecting them.

Sweet Tomato!


My first tomato has shown up on our patio! This is the beginning of a beautiful relationship.

Brief Update!


So in the mist of our cruise ship excitement, I forgot to share with you an interesting event that transpired.

Val got his hair cut!

I had set up an appointment for my birthday to visit a private hair studio (hairbyjoey.com) and Val tagged along. The guy did such an awesome job on my hair that Val was brave enough to sit down in the hot seat. And voila!

So here's a pic of him rocking his new hair-do in Mexico, right by La Bufadora. Rock it, honey!

Also, I was having a bit of a rough day on Monday so I decided to become an ordained minister. It's now Reverend Julie to you, buddy! So if any of you need to get married in a pinch, you know who to go to. I'm also legally available to do exorcisms, but I promise you that all I'll do is throw nail polish remover and to chant in Latin.
