I'm now searching for absolutely anything that will help me to avoid unpacking and repacking a suitcase for the fourth time this month. Searching so hard that I'm updating a blog I haven't touched in a handful of months. I must say, though - in my absence you all have been very generous to continue to click in and check on me. Thanks for your support!

Is it strange that I am singing 'procrastination' to the tune of Carly Simon's 'anticipation'?! You really should here the soundtrack that plays up there - it may just scare you! And cue - 'rythym is gonna' get ya'. ......And I digress.....

I have found gainful employment since my last entry. The pros of this outweigh the cons, so I'll save my "money doesn't buy hapiness" diatribe for another day. Said employment also has me traveling on a regular basis. This sounds exciting, but it's really far from glamorous. Consider the unpack/repack situation I'm avoiding, or my 2:30 am alarm that will go off as I prepare for a 5:30am flight. Said employment has also kept my schedule and flexibility held hostage so that I haven't been able to see mi familia as often as I had grown accustomed to. Which is why I enjoy little nuggets of goodness like these when I can. Silly girly!

Festivus for the rest of us!

It was my goal to get this done on Monday proper, in true celebratory fashion. But my computer clock is staring at me saying 11:59 pm, so I don't think that's going to happen! Fear not - there is still reason to rejoice. The first day of my new blog, and Opening Day for these cuties....How's that for a Monday kick off?! Baseball is huge in our family, and just to hear the play by play on the radio takes me to a special place. I think any of my sisters would say the same. Here's to hoping that tonight's game against the Cubs was just par for the beginning of the season course for our Houston boys.

If you know anything about my favorite team, then you'll know that my blog title is in honor of the one and only, Lance Berkman. Fear not all you girlies who were just looking for cake ball recipes and hairbow hanger designs, this space will not be dedicated to baseball updates. I do, however, have the right to post pictures of The Big Puma as often and as prevelantly as I like. :-)

Speaking of cuties - while #17 left Kissimme, FL this weekend, another one of my favorite cuties was arriving. My niece, Riley, and her entourage (Josh, Kari, Hayden, Nana, Pops, Nani) touched down in the Sunshine State to partake in some Disney magic and soak up some fun. I've been blessed with excited updates and a few phone pics along the way. So fun, I couldn't not share! Is that the cutest Minnie you've ever seen, or what?!

Come back and visit often, and keep track of how I'm trotting the bases - sneaky fast!
