5 On Friday: A Sweet Week

5 on Friday is my weekly post about five random things. Things on my mind, things that happened to make the week special, maybe even five fun things you need to know about. It was a busy week, you know the kind where your schedule is so jam packed you just roll from one thing to the next without [...]

How To Throw A Pineapple Party

When you have a birthday days before Christmas day it’s hard to get people together for a celebration. As a kid, my mom made sure my birthday presents were wrapped in birthday themed wrapping. Whether big or small she always ensured I had something special to unwrap on my big day. Some of my [...]

Today. Tomorrow. Gratitude & Goals.

If I had one word to sum up the summer so far, it’d have to be adventure. June was full of unexpected happenings under the guise of a bucket list. I was able to check off a few things on the list with some great memories to show for it too. June was also marked by an incredible gift from [...]

5 On Friday: Praying for Peace

It’s difficult today to think about anything else but our community and our country. In the wake of the Dallas sniper ambush, and the fatal police shootings in Louisiana and Minnesota, I wonder just where that breaking point is that we’ll finally take action, any kind of action.

Magnolia Market at the Silos: My Visit in Photos

My first trip to Waco to visit Magnolia Market at the Silos, in search of Joanna and Chip Gaines. It was really a cool place with so much more than housewares and decor. When in Waco you must stop by! Sadly, I did not run into the HGTV stars! This is the church you’ll want to park at. If [...]

My First ATX Blogger Mixer

The gremlin chatter began days before I attended my first blogger’s event. Will I belong there? I’m twice the age of these girls I thought. Am I gonna be dressed fashionably enough? My mind began playing games with me like I was on an episode of the Price Is Right. Questions reconsidering my [...]

Can We Please Not Move On

On the heels of one of the worst displays of hatred I’ve ever seen in my brief lifetime, I struggle to think about anything else. And at the risk of sounding trite, my words are just that. Words. My confusion, my sorrow, my hurt, and my disbelief pale in comparison to what the mothers, fathers, [...]
