Post image for Las Vegas. A Video & Some Facts*

Operation Tally Ho rolled into Las Vegas in May this year. This is our 4th stay here, and our longest yet! Seeing as we are “locals” for several weeks each year, I thought I’d throw out some little known facts* for the uninitiated. Here ya go: 1. LV has THE MOST vanity plates in the […]


Post image for Siena’s First Blog Post (and a selfie)

Hello!  Welcome to Siena’s first ever blog post!!  How exciting, right?   So this first part is where she actually typed out what she wanted to say (I assume).  Below that is where I typed as she dictated.  She finished this post by explaining what she really meant by all of this. We all hope […]

I moved to Texas for a boy.  Not the boy I’m married to, so don’t get all “awwwww” on me. I actually never intended to live in TX.  I had broken up with said boy and moved to sunny San Diego to lick my emotional wounds (he had cheated–the bastard!).  The boy and I began […]


Post image for The Magical Land of Yiyi & Yoyo

Well, we have concluded our time in the Austin, TX area.  We spent our time in a very special place where dinosaurs, mermaids, cheetahs and unicorns exist and co-exist: The Magical Land of Yiyi and Yoyo.   It wouldn’t be a trip to TX without thunderstorm and hail. Check! PS. If you think Matt sounds […]


The Bluebonnets seemed to have bloomed early for my birthday. I had such an unbelievably beautiful day with my beautiful family. How can one (young and youthful looking) woman be so lucky?!? ;) That’s a question for the ages, but in the mean time I’ll just keep being the beneficiary of this lucky, fun, fantastic […]

Tally Ho begins in basically the same way each year. We leave San Diego, pop in the CD that our good friend Blythe made us (a new one each year) and set our wheels toward AZ. The first official stop of Operation Tally Ho 2014 was Tubac, AZ. My Nana lives there and we go […]

Post image for An Old Timey Colorado Slideshow

Since we were in Colorado for over a month, I thought the best way to capture so many of our adventures would be to Animoto it!  I haven’t Animoto’d in a while, so here you go. May I present: Colorado 2013.  Enjoy!

I miss you. I miss you and think about you often. At first I didn’t. At first you hardly crossed my mind as we crossed the state lines. Plus, I found ways to replace you. I have 9 months of adorable love lay snuggled up sleeping beside me.  This may have something to do with […]


Post image for 3 Things I (Re-)Learned in Allen, TX

Living, learning and remembering with our Allen, TX family We often note how surreal it is that we cruise into peoples lives, click in and then click out when it’s time to Tally Ho.  Sometimes not very much has changed for those that we visit, sometimes lives have changed drastically, and some things just NEVER […]
