20 ways to keep kids busy during spring break

This year is flying by at a scary rate… We’re now only a few weeks away from Spring Break and I’m already starting to plan it out… because no one wants to go into a week long vacation with the kids home without a plan. To keep the sanity (and them out of your hair), you’ve got to exhaust all […]

My First 5K Experience

My First 5k Experience

Between 80 degree days, 40 degree nights, a weather forecast that included thunder and hail storms, and some impromptu tornadoes- the weather has been absolutely crazy around here.

Wine of the Week: Cherry Blossom Pinot Noir

When I went to Trader Joe’s to peruse their “affordable” wines (as recommended by an AWESOME wine-loving friend), I found myself running through the aisle like a kid in a candy store, picking up bottles left and right.

Getting Kids to Listen

The Resolution Challenge: Losing Traction

So it happened. I fell off the resolution wagon. I lost traction, slipped and fell. I’ve just been so involved in the blog and seriously slacking on finding a good balance between blog, brood, and life. Now don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love what I do, but it has consumed me in both good and bad ways. In a good […]

The Peking Acrobats San Antonio

Nowadays, we have access to the world from the comfort of our palms. From a 5-inch screen, we can be whisked away to distant lands and experience different people, languages and cultures. This is truly a remarkable thing! The only downside is that all that you see and hear through your pocket-sized gadget has a filter on it. What you’re seeing […]
