You Don’t Look Like Me

I’ll never forget my first cheer camp. We spent the night away from home for two nights and spent our days learning stunts, chants, and tumbling. Yes siree, life was good. Until it wasn’t. The camp ended with the requisite exhibition for the parents. I was back-row material at best so this performance made me nervous […]

Date Night is Doable

Before we had kids, Date Night wasn’t a phrase in our couple lingo—hanging out together in the evening happened every evening because it was just…us. Once upon that unscheduled time, we had date nights more frequently, rarely going out simply because it’s ‘been too long’ since we ‘had time to ourselves.’ Evenings out were often […]

Some Mama Appreciation

As I’m writing this, I am diligently preparing for an upcoming 2 week trial, knowing I have more trials set in the weeks immediately following. The last time I had a slew of trials back to back like this, I was not yet married and hadn’t “acquired” my stepkids. I ate takeout every night, bought […]

The Japanese Tea Garden, a Midtown Oasis

  The Japanese Tea Garden is one of the best local attractions that you probably aren’t visiting.  It’s located in Brackenridge Park, along Saint Mary’s Street, southwest of the Zoo.  If you have not heard of it, I’m not surprised.  I have a theory as to why many San Antonians–even natives–are not aware of it. But first, […]

Making Mornings Easier for Moms

We are now a week into school in San Antonio, and the back to school excitement has definitely faded at my house (that tends to happen with the first homework assignment!). Usually during the first week of school I don’t have too much trouble getting everyone up and out the door, but as time goes […]

Christie Hoese ~ Nerium International {Sponsored}

Have you ever sat at the circus and watched the tight rope walkers?  They glide along a tiny rope with such ease and skill, hundreds of feet above the ground. The intensity of the show only increases as they add challenges to test their abilities – weights, juggling, even carrying other performers on their backs, walking from one […]

Hometown Tourist

I’m not a true San Antonian. I wasn’t born and raised here, and the Alamo City doesn’t lay claim to being my home town. But I have lived here for 5 years now, and I’ve still yet to do or see some of the most basic things that San Antonio is famous for. I have […]

New Kids on the Block: Our Move to Boerne

I grew up in a small town in Oklahoma, so my move to San Antonio felt very fish-out-of-water. Although I was far from a farm kid, San Antonio felt much like a bustling city to me. It was all very exciting: tons of restaurants, shopping to beat the band, and traffic. Lots and lots of […]
