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”

Mommy Review Monday: Batiste Dry Shampoo, Dark & Deep Brown

It took me a long time to break down and try dry shampoo, mostly because I always assumed it only worked for blondes. As I was getting my hospital bag ready for delivering the twins, one of the things I kept seeing on many new moms lists was dry shampoo. So I figured it wasContinue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Batiste Dry Shampoo, Dark & Deep Brown”

Dashboard Randomness: Sunrises and Bluebonnets

Today I had a golf tournament for one of the regional associations I’m part of in San Antonio. Usually, when I go to San Antonio I will drive down the night before but I have been on the go so much lately I decided to just wake up early and drive this morning. And, boy,Continue reading “Dashboard Randomness: Sunrises and Bluebonnets”

Carry On

Driving down (actually up but I always want to say I’m driving down somewhere for some reason) 35N on my way home today Carry On by Pat Green came on. It’s a Texas Country classic, in my mind. Honestly, I’ve not ever put much thought into it besides that it reminds me of driving theContinue reading “Carry On”

Photo Friday: Mr. Chairman, My Dad

My dad doesn’t often read this. And it’s a good thing because he’s a very humble man and may not approve of me bragging on him so much. However, I’m going to brag about him anyway. Last night he was “inaugurated” as the Chairman (equivalent of President) of the Mason Contractors of America (MCAA). He’sContinue reading “Photo Friday: Mr. Chairman, My Dad”

Photo Friday: Fossil Rim

Garen took the bigs to Fossil Rim a few weeks back on his way back from Hamilton. Despite Will almost losing a thumb while feeding a very greedy Oestrich, they had a fantastic time. If you’ve never been to Fossil Rim in Glen Rose, it’s absolutely a Texas bucket list item! It was a greatContinue reading “Photo Friday: Fossil Rim”

Photo Friday: Colorado- Where the Wild Things Live- Part 1

Garen and I had the MCAA Midyear Meeting in Steamboat, CO in August and we decided to take a few days off before it to go to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park. Of course, we had a great time and, of course, Garen took some awesome photos. These are only a few becauseContinue reading “Photo Friday: Colorado- Where the Wild Things Live- Part 1”

Makita Training and Pheasant Hunting in Utah

I was fortunate enough to be invited to attend a training and pheasant hunt in Utah with Makita this weekend. It was a great time and I got to learn a ton about the Makita tools we carry. I’m still constantly amazed that they have soooo many battery operated tools available. A few of theContinue reading “Makita Training and Pheasant Hunting in Utah”

Mommy Review Monday: Starbucks App

Before I start I’m going to go ahead and admit that this post makes me seem super-spoiled. I’ll refute that by saying that:  I work hard for my over-priced caffeinated beverages  I use them to treat myself or wake myself up (whichever type of day it might be) I don’t have a daily habit (mostContinue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Starbucks App”

Photo Friday: New England Favs

Here are a few from our girls’ trip to New England- Newport, Boston, and Salem.  There’s MUCH more content to come, including our itinerary, but these are some of my favorites, not just because of the quality but because of the memories.  House of Seven Gables…can I be honest and say I don’t remember theContinue reading “Photo Friday: New England Favs”
