Around The House

Hello! I seem to be on a blogging kick lately. :) First off, a little tiger update. Remember my post about the tiger roaming around the Houston area neighborhood? They were able to locate her owner and he surrendered her to the city. They're going to try and find a tiger sanctuary that will take her. The shelter workers said she is very well behaved, in great health, and sweet as can be, so I hope she finds a great home soon. And just to clarify, the tiger wasn't roaming around my neighborhood. It was pretty far from where we live, thank goodness. It was neat to see it on the local news though. :)

I thought y'all might like to see what some of the bathroom signs look like, here in Space City...

Love the astronaut bathroom signs! It can definitely be interesting living in an area so close to the space industry. My youngest went to preschool with an astronaut's son and there are several kids in our schools who have parents as astronauts. And yes, I watched every episode of The Astronaut Wives Club last summer. :) 

Let's talk food, shall we? I bought these butter rum muffins at HEB last week and they were so good! Everyone liked them, which is rare. The bad part is that they were on sale, buy one 3 pack, get one free, so I ended up with SIX of them in the house. Thank goodness for treadmills. ;) 

Do y'all have a Schlotzsky's in your area? I was pretty much raised on their sandwiches and their pizzas are equally good. Just look at this BBQ chicken and jalapeno one...

Again...thank goodness for treadmills. Lol!

As I was vacuuming the cat hair off the dining room chairs for the umpteenth time, I started contemplating recovering them in a fabric that matches Holly's fur. Ha!

Don't you love it when you make a purchase and you know it's something you'll continue to love for years to come? That's how I feel about this clover mirror below. I got it at a great price and still love what it adds to the dining room. 

After cleaning the house this morning, I plan on propping my feet up on this pouf and catching up with some books on my Kindle. I think there's also a new Hallmark movie waiting for me on my DVR. :) 

Hope y'all have a great day!



  1. I'm glad to hear the tiger is fine and going to a sanctuary. I can't even imagine looking out the window and seeing a tiger roaming the street?!?! LOL...We eat at Schlotzskys but I have never had their pizza. I am going to have to order that next time we eat there now. I love your clover mirror, very pretty! I need to go clean my house......

  2. Lisa, My problem is I have never met a muffin I didn't like. LOL. I love the lady bug cup. My daughter used to get so many lady bugs, well let's just say she called them many things and lady wasn't one of the name. LOL. I hope the tiger isn't put in with mean ones. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  3. I feel sorry for the tiger!!

    We love Schlotzky's and yes their pizzas are great!

    Enjoy your Me day. :)

  4. I had no idea there was a tiger roaming around the Houston area!! I haven't had time to catch up on my favorite blogs- yours included! Glad they got everything under control :)
    Your day sounds perfect- cleaning then relaxing...enjoy!!

  5. I've never heard of Schlotzky's, but their pizza looks very good! I feel bad for the tiger. I know it was cruel to keep her in captivity at all and she belongs in the wild, but it sounds as if she was very well trained and cared makes me wonder if she will miss her owner...

  6. I didnt hear about the tiger but i am sure on the news yesterday or today they showed a bear running through a neighborhood somewhere! Not sure what happened with that one! We dont have that pizza here but my goodness it sure looks GOOD!!!

  7. Ooh, that pizza looks so good! I've only had sandwiches at Schlosky's!

  8. Hi Lisa,
    Yum on the pizza. I am glad they were able to catch the Tiger and will find him a good place to live. I cannot even imagine what it costs to feed that guy every day!!!! Glad it all turned out ok for him. Have a great rest of the week.

  9. I remember eating at a Schlotzky's deli many many years ago. It was near where I worked. There aren't any around where I live though. They had good sandwiches on sour dough bread. Their pizza sure looks good!

  10. Schlotzskys is a place that could eat at daily! I love their sandwiches and must try their pizza now! I don't eat there often, but I could!
    I'm so happy they found that tiger! I found your blog while at Nana Diana Takes a Break blog, I'm crazy about that lady!
    I'll be back!

  11. Fun update, Lisa! Wow, and a tiger roaming around! Crazy! Those muffins sounds soo good! Yes, thank goodness for treadmills! Hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day, friend! xo
