“L” is for Father’s Day

0 Permalink 0

Ladies, I took the sacrificial "L" for you all today. I completely forgot about Father's Day. ? I blame the lack of media really. I didn't watch television all weekend, so there were no reminders to let me know that it was Father's Day. (It may sound like a weak excuse, but I'm sticking to it. ...

And Grace Will Lead Her Home

2 Permalink 0

It has been such a crazy year for me. I told you I had my second son, and when I was on maternity leave, we had workers in and out of our house for different maintenance items (roof, air conditioner, punctured pipe from the roof repair which left us with a hole in our ceiling ...

Transparency Will Set You Free

I haven't written in a year... talk about hiatus! I finally figured out what my problem is. When life happens and the going gets tough, I tend to buckle down and "get 'er done," and at no time do I think of documenting it. (I'll do better...) So my year at a glance: I still ...

Another Year Wiser

I could act like it hasn't been months since I last wrote, but that would just be weird. So let me address the elephant in the room. Yes, I've been on hiatus. No, I didn't realize that it's been so long. Yes, I'm doing fine. No, I still haven't revealed what's keeping me so busy. ...

As the Plot Thickens (A Family Saga)

"You won't be needing THIS anymore..." This may be the shortest post I ever do, but I'm so short on time. While I was having dinner today, I realized something—it's so hard to eat when you have a one year old. I don't know if Jayden is going through a growth spurt or what, but this ...

Failing to Plan? Plan to Fail

0 Permalink 0

As I get older, I realize that I have to literally plan everything if I'm going to do it. I never thought I'd have to be the "planner book" type of person. I usually wing it and play things by ear. But slowly, I'm letting things slip through the cracks. Not a good look. Case and ...

Why Mexican Food is Overrated

5 Permalink 0

I don't get the fascination with Mexican food. Well, let me not condemn the whole culture. I'm really just talking about Tex-Mex food. That seems to be the "no-brainer" favorite for most Texas natives. (For those of you who don't know, Tex-Mex is Mexican food with an American twist. I guess Americans don't want to ...
