Time for a change

It was December 9, 2017 and the family was all decked out in their best. The boys in boots & ties, our daughter in her lace evening dress and the hubby in his leather vest and cowboy hat. We were down to the last five minutes of “we need to get on the road now!” The family was patiently waiting in the truck while I was still inside. My hair was done, makeup set but I was still in my slip.

A new year

Ah, it’s that time again….

Once the count down is over, the kisses have landed and the champagne has run dry, it’s time to once again set unrealistic goals.

country kids, country living

There are many tales of how children differ when raised in the city vs country. While there are pros & cons to both, my personal experience proves that the country life is a far richer experience than any concrete jungle can provide.

The pre-school edition

The fun and much anticipated pre-school stage. Or as I like to call it, the horrible 3’s.

I love Hunter and I adore his personality. I wouldn’t change anything about him because I know who he is right now will change soon and I will look back and miss those days with him. Sometimes though, he’s a tough cookie to handle. He is not only defiant, he is fearless and outspoken.

The Romance Package

I adore my three littles very much, but every once in a while it’s good to get away and dedicate a little time & fun to yourself and your spouse.

As much as we love the ranch and spending time outdoors, I need a city night or two in my life every now and then. I love San Antonio and all it’s features. Since the city is a two hour drive for us, we pack a bag and spend the weekend. If we can a get a weekend alone, sans kids, we plan for romance. Read More

Cherry Cream Cheese Cobbler Dump Cake

My children are notorious for last minute notices when it comes to school projects and also for signing me up for everything! I have had phone calls to cook 6 pounds of beans for a fall festival, bake a million cupcakes and donate double snacks for class parties. I love my children!

The beginning

I can close my eyes & remember every detail of our first meeting. 1996 and I was a freshman at La Pryor High School.  I was shy, awkward and lacked style (my mother picked out my rocky jeans). There I was sitting in Mrs. Blair’s English class when all the girls began to giggle and whisper. And there he was, this boy, a new student to the district. He was athletic & chiseled to say the least. His hair was dark just like his eyes. He smelled heavenly but manly. He was everything a young farmer’s daughter could dream of. I couldn’t help but stare often at him. We had almost every class together and he was the center of attention in each. I caught myself day dreaming about talking to him but hadn’t worked up the courage. Read More
