Photo Friday: Just Keep Swimming

Since today is officially the beginning of summer in our household, it seems appropriate that I should post these photos from our adventures at the pool last weekend. Summer means swimming, right?!? As you can tell, we had a blast in Mammy and Yaya’s pool. Our little fish loooooove to swim! And Clara almost refusedContinue reading “Photo Friday: Just Keep Swimming”

Photo Friday: Brownies

Our Girl Scout troop advanced from Daisies to Brownies on Tuesday night with a great bridging ceremony. We’ve got such a fun and unique group of girls and awesome leaders! We’re looking forward to another great year as Brownies! Here’s a few photos I got from Tuesday’s fun. Unfortunately Garen had to stay home withContinue reading “Photo Friday: Brownies”

Sprinkler Saturday

What do you do when it’s hot outside and you need to keep the troops entertained??? Go outside and play in the sprinkler!!! And Garen got out his fancy lenses to capture a few quick photos. I think they turned out pretty cool, don’t you?!?

Wellness Wednesday: Eating Healthy on the Road

I’m on the road a lot for work. Eating healthy on the road is hard. Extra hard when you love food and you use food as a way to keep you entertained and/or you have a 3-4 hour drive. Here’s what I’ve been doing lately to make it work: Pack my lunch and snacks when IContinue reading “Wellness Wednesday: Eating Healthy on the Road”

Photo Friday: Longhorn Love

Garen took these photos last week on this way through Hamilton from Marble Falls.  I’ll admit, I love longhorns.  To my fellow Aggies- sorry, not sorry.  They’re beautiful animals and I love these photos Garen caught….. Even if they are UT’s mascot.   Happy Photo Friday everyone! Photo credits to Garen Graves Photography.  Check out theContinue reading “Photo Friday: Longhorn Love”

Wellness Wednesday: Still Nooming Along

Yes, folks, yesterday marked one solid week of tracking everything in Noom (see my last post about starting this adventure.)  I have to say, the first few days were pretty rough.  Imagine going from eating pretty much everything in sight to eating 1,200 calories a day.  Yup, that’s right.  1,200 calories a day.  Craziness. What’sContinue reading “Wellness Wednesday: Still Nooming Along”

(Not So) Tall Tale Tuesday: Bringing Joy in the Midst of Sorrow

Today’s (Not So) Tall Tale Tuesday prompt: Write about a childhood memory that changed your perspective. I could probably write quite a few stories about childhood memories that changed my perspective but for now, I’m going to go back to a memory from a long, long time ago that I barely even remember. I amContinue reading “(Not So) Tall Tale Tuesday: Bringing Joy in the Midst of Sorrow”

Photo Friday: Easter at the Blowin’ O

We celebrated Easter with the Odom side of the family on the Saturday before Easter.  The kids had a great time getting to play and explore the Blowin’ O, what we affectionately call Aunt Karen and Uncle Lee Roy’s place out by Aleman, TX, which is right outside of Hamilton.  It was Granny and Grandad’sContinue reading “Photo Friday: Easter at the Blowin’ O”

My Dad turns 60

Growing up, and even in the recent past, my mom has told me, “You are just like your Dad….” Man, what a compliment. My Dad is one of my heroes.  It’s no secret that I adore him.  I’m proud of his accomplishments throughout his career, but I’m even more proud of the man he isContinue reading “My Dad turns 60”
