In the begining…Flashback Friday

Filed under: family, flashback friday, me — Jana @ 6:00 am

In honor of our Anniversary two weeks ago, I thought I would do a little flashback post.

Here we are before we got married.
Picture 072

Here is an actual wedding picture, not taken by Wendy.  I know I have already posted this picture but it’s the only one we have scanned on the computer right now and I am too lazy to go find another.


Soon after we got married, we moved down to San Diego. We ran out of money fast so Lee took a job he got offered in Houston, TX.

We packed up and moved down there. Lee loved it because he played tennis everyday with our neighbors. They were a Colombian couple with two little kids. They were as sweet as could be but didn’t speak much English. So I was never really apart of the conversations (Lee is fluent in Spanish). I also didn’t really like Houston very much because it was so hot and humid. The beach sucked. There was nothing for me to do. Let’s face it you can only really go to NASA once. There are tornadoes there and yes we did get caught in a small one in our car.  We were fine but we did have to pull a huge sign post out of our engine from underneath the car.  And there were horrendous rain storms almost every weekend. Here is one Lee got caught in but luckily he drove an SUV. The guy he caught in this picture was not so lucky:

One good thing did come out of Houston. Our little tex-mex dog Tiger.
Picture 094



  1. Lee looks so different back then. Maybe it’s his hair. Marriage definetly does him good. He looks so much better filled out more. I hardly recognized you in the picture with Tiger too. I thought you were way skinny when you married Lee and now your even skinnier. I need to follow your example and get myself on a better eating regimen!! This baby weight is killing me!!!!

  3. It is weird to think that Tiger was even littlier than he is now! He was a cute puppy. :-)

  4. I forgot how beautiful your wedding dress was and still is. I hate mine now. You guys are so cute together. Congrats on the 4 years together.

  5. Who the crap is that in the last picture… certainly not Jana.

  6. Why…because I look hideous?

    We went to the beach all that day, so my makeup was smeared under my eyes and my lips got sunburnt and really dry. not to mention I was 10 lbs heavier before I had Carmen.

    I know it’s a bad picture but tiger looked so tiny and cute I had to post it.

  7. I have never seen a time when you’ve looked hideous. You on the the other hand have seen me on film as a child. I am sorry for that! :) I had no idea you had so many crazy adventures in Houston! I love the rain, but that’s nuts.
    Tiger is so delicously cute in that picture.
