This is how we Spring Break

Our vacation of choice is to head to Colorado.  And it’s not to ski, however we like to do that too.  Andy calls it the “motherland” because that’s where he was born and raised.  I’m that evil person who somehow lured him to the desolate state of Oklahoma.  But we won’t go there today.  I’ll…

Coconut Sugar – It just might change your life

I’m going to get informational on you today.  Don’t be scared.  Just stick with me and have an open mind. I went on this 30 day detox where I eliminated almost everything I loved from my diet.  Things like refined sugar, coffee, and gluten.  I seem to be that person who needs to prove things…

In Defense of the Mom Blogger

I accompanied the owner of OKC Moms Blog to an  OKC Influencer “networking breakfast” today.  And it was your typical corporate breakfast.  A lot of suits around, a lot of card swapping and a lot of industry talk going on.  It took me back to my corporate years.  Some people love corporate life.  I did…

Things I learned at the middle school banquet

Let’s see, Carson is 14 and this is the fist time I’ve helped at an extra curricular event for school in maybe, 8 years?  It was time to pay my dues, I know.  #Momfessional.  I don’t love helping at school events.  Some people are cut out for that stuff.  They are gifted.  Me – I’m…

Monday…you came out fists flying

I don’t usually blame days of the week.  But today it has to be done.  I mean, who else can I blame for the chaos of my morning?  Let me recap. I puuuuuuullllllllleeeeeeedddddd myself out of bed at the rousing hour of 6:30am ready to tackle the day.  I don’t know about you but my…

Double Digits

  It’s official as of today.  I no longer have any children the age of single digits.  Today Karly hits the milestone.  I don’t know if I’ve told this story here but when I figured out I was pregnant with Karly it was the day of Neely’s first birthday party.  And I cried.  And they…

Love

It’s love month!  Do you care?  Do you not care?  People’s feelings are all over the board this month.  I like Valentine’s day.  I’m not one who requires a lot of celebrating.  I did in my early years.  I thought Andy needed to go big or go home.  But now its like I don’t want…

A quick trip to Virginia

We just got back from a quick trip to Virginia.  I had an event I was hosting in Washington D.C. and Andy tagged a long for a weekend away.  My sis lives in Virginia so we mini vacayed it. It started off rough with a 5 hour delay before we even left.  It cut a…

Chia Pudding – your new favorite breakfast

I decided to embark on a 30 day detox to begin the year 2017.   I decided to do this for a couple of reasons. I’m a sugar addict.  I’m a coffee addict.  I wanted to see if I would feel better because that’s what I read I wanted to see if I could actually…

Christmas Traditions: Cinnamon Roll Edition

I am a sucker for Christmas traditions.  So I thought I’d share one of ours with you.  Because I steal others traditions from their blogs sometimes. We’re starting off with cinnamon roll making with Bethany. I have a short cut cinnamon roll I make all year long.  But that’s not this one.  Now we didn’t…
