  • Whole New Year – Whole30?!

    Whole New Year – Whole30?!

    Whole New Year – Whole30?! While resolutions were off the table this year, per se, making changes to be better was the goal.  Part of that is the one task us moms have a really hard time with – taking care of ourselves.  Since I carried my 9+ lb. baby, this body has had a whole slew of aches and pains and a general feeling of “what now?!”   In an attempt to rectify some of this and get back to movement and maybe some (ahem, all) of my clothes being tight I’ll be hopping on the Whole30 bandwagon of change and empowerment. It’s just 30 days.

    Book Club: Winter Reading List 2018 (a.k.a. 6 Excuses to Stay Home!)

    “Nothing burns like the cold.” ― George R. R. Martin, A Game of Thrones It’s cold – as if I needed another excuse to stay in and read! This winter in Houston is being especially wintery (excuse my technical jargon).  It is so cold. My nose is cold. My toeses are cold. I’m so cold.  If my family would let me I would just sit right here in my comfy house until summer.  Remember summer?  Ahh, heat, I miss you.  And, for good measure, humidity, I miss you too. My hair looks great but, dang, I don’t want to go anywhere!  Good news, here areRead More →Read More »

    Happy New Year! Did you have a great New Year’s Eve? Whether partying in Vegas with the Chippendales of more of a Netflix and chill night I hope it was a good one! Are you a resolution setter? I am…on and off. This year is a veritable off.  This is one of those years where I am starting with a million things on “the list” so I am not going to burden myself with one more. Unless it should be to not ever have a list of more than five things?  Inconceivable! What I will strive for is just to simply be better.  If I need downtime,Read More →Read More »

    Mom’s Guide to Dinosaur Valley State Park

    Brrrrrr, It’s Cold! But, it’s Texas so Winter Camping is a Thing! Recently, we did some family camping at Dinosaur Valley State Park.  The forecast was lows in the 40s. They lied!  It got down to 29 degrees. It was cooooooold! However, this park is amazing and we still had a great time. Dinosaur Valley SP is located near Glen Rose, TX (Glen Rose is about an hour southwest of Fort Worth).  It is a great little town that is big enough for a Dairy Queen and a Holiday Inn Express – so, if the camping doesn’t go according to plan there is a Plan BRead More →Read More »
