Ren Fest 2016

We had the best time with new friends at the annual Texas Renaissance Festival. We celebrated Lexi’s fifth birthday with turkey legs, frozen ice and cotton candy! Her parents, Patrick and Melissa are pros at dressing up for Ren Fest. Patrick’s family was also in attendance in full costume as well. Ryan and I were…

Jagged Ridge Park- The Woodlands, Texas

My family and I love the outdoors. We would rather be outside than anywhere else in the world. My daughters have become very spoiled by the parks in our area. The Woodlands is known for their master planned community surrounded by trees and water systems. Their attention to outdoor spaces, hiking trails and community make The Woodlands…

Letters to Mia

November 11, 2016 Dear Mia, Oh My little pumpkin nugget! I am so fortunate that you are a big sister superstar. I cannot believe how much you have grown even since the summer. Today we went to the zoo. You me and Maddy, the three musketeers. It was such an amazing day. It has been…

Stopping to savor the moments

2016 was an amazing year for my family. I have so much to be thankful for that I could burst. My husband and I have grown so much as leaders in our family and as followers of Christ. Our success is attributed to our faith in something bigger than ourselves. I know it seems cliche…

Autumn Blooms

Pumpkins and Fall Festivals

I love October. Not only does the cooler weather pick up my spirits, but the Fall festivals and activities are amazing ways to make memories. The girls just turned 5 and 3 and I swear time keeps passing by faster and faster. At the first of the month we visited our home town and attended…

Zootopia and Shakira saved me

“Try Anything” is the theme song to Disney’s newest movie Zootopia. Shakira sings, and it has me completely hooked. It is on repeat in our house and the girls and I dance and sing to the top of our lungs! Honestly, at first I didn’t think I wanted the girls to like this song…. I…

Learn Positivity

What I wanted was a nice neighborhood with nice neighbors and maybe a pool and park. What I found was so much more. A mastermind group is a collection of like-minded individuals to keep one accountable and motivated. The idea of the “mastermind group” is that surrounding yourself with people of common interests and goals…

Growing up and moving forward.

We are currently in a stage of change and transition. We decided to sell our house in order to keep growing our at home businesses. I have been caught up in all the changes and I wanted to reflect on what has actually motivated us to get to this point. My family has always been…

Motivating my kids, motivating myself 

I get overrun with emotions all day. It can be mentally exhausting to take care of business at home with questions from my two and four year old every three seconds. I know how to get my kids excited about situations. It is what I have to do as a mother to motivate them to…
