My Funny Valentine

Wow, guys….. What. A. Week. It’s been one for the record books. There were Valentine’s Day school parties, Garen on the road two days, getting ready for helping with decorations for the school dance, and more “real work” than I can shake a stick at. And then the weekend full of laundry, washing and puttingContinue reading “My Funny Valentine”

Photo Friday: Willy P, Basketball Star

Will started playing basketball. He’s having a blast. He’s got a great coach and assistant coach and I think he enjoys playing with his teammates even though none of them go to his school. We signed up through the YMCA and I have to say that I’m been pretty impressed with the organization and howContinue reading “Photo Friday: Willy P, Basketball Star”

Whoooooo are you?

Figure out who you are and then do it on purpose. – Dolly Parton Such a fantastic quote.  It is tomorrow’s quote of the day for Tuesday in my planner.  I just recently watched the popular Netflix movie, Duplin’.  It was fantastic.  I’m not going to say much more because I hate spoilers but thisContinue reading “Whoooooo are you?”

Photo Friday: Liz VS. Granite Counter-top

Liz VS Granite Counter-top. Spoiler alert: the counter-top won. I know that technically it’s Saturday but the internet gods were mad at me and wouldn’t upload it last night.  It is what it is. Two days before we left for our family vacation, I was delivering some tools to of my best and biggest customer’s offices.Continue reading “Photo Friday: Liz VS. Granite Counter-top”

Photo Friday: Family Cruise Vacation 2018 Highlights

As I write this today, I’m recovering (and doing loads and loads of laundry) from our family vacation.  It was fantastic and exhausting.  We started out last Friday roadtripping down to Galveston with the littles (stay tuned for a post on road trips with toddlers), followed by an afternoon at Schlitterbahn in Galveston.  Saturday, weContinue reading “Photo Friday: Family Cruise Vacation 2018 Highlights”

Mommy Review Monday: Panera Bread App

It’s been a while since I’ve written a Mommy Review Monday but was spurred into thinking of it today because this app is something I feel I should share.

Mommy Review Monday: Full Focus Planner

I have mentioned in a few of my previous posts that I use the Full Focus Planner.  I happened upon this wonderful thing on one of the many podcasts that I listen to.  It’s been wonderful for me. Here’s what I like about it: It’s black and non-discrete.  There’s a lot of flashy journals outContinue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Full Focus Planner”

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”

Snacking Healthy: Salted Chocolate Coconut DeLight

My adventure on Noom and my new healthy lifestyle continues. (if I was saying this out loud I would’ve used air quotes around healthy lifestyle) And as I continue to Noom right along, I’m learning how to better use my very limited calories to the ensure I’m satisfied from not only a hunger standpoint butContinue reading “Snacking Healthy: Salted Chocolate Coconut DeLight”

(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”
