New Hampshire Motor Speedway Gift of Lights #giftoflights #NH

The family packed up the van and headed out to enjoy The Gift of Lights at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway a few weekends ago. I was so happy when a friend posted pictures from when she visited in past years The Gift of Lights in Texas. Never had I heard of The Gift of Lights being in New Hampshire, so once I saw that it was, we knew we had to take our children there. We all love Christmas Lights so much and this Gift of Lights event is happening through January 5, 2014. There’s still time to go […]

I Have Compassion, But Really?

I have complete compassion and love as well as prayers for those who are hurt by any tragedy in this world, lately there seems to be a lot more than I recall being around when I was a child. I could just have been in the child state of mind where the world revolves around me, which means I wasn’t up to par on media news, but seriously, are there not more and more tragedies these days? While I am sad for families who have lost loved ones, best friends and pets I also am a realistic person who firmly […]

If Only the Big Bad Wolf Was Real…

My three year old son is obsessed with the big bad wolf, if you ask him he will tell you he “isn’t scared of anything, not even the big bad wolf”. Then he will proceed to tell you that he will just punch him in the face. This kid has a mouth on him the size of Texas, no joke. Since he will be in preschool soon, hopefully, I am working on figuring out how to properly redirect his amazing imagination with a less mouthy touch. It’s. not. working. yet. The other night I needed to cook dinner because the […]

Daycare

Contribution by German Flowers My sister and I have decided to open up a daycare. We want it to be fun and educational; a step above other day cares. We have already bought a small building with a warehouse behind it. Our plan is to use the warehouse and have a room dedicated to indoor play. That way, if the weather outside is too cold or wet, the kids will still be able to release some energy. The indoor play area will have huge inflatables and a plastic play set off to the side. For smaller children, we plan to […]

The Love Story of @IgboSwag and @DaRealChrisReed

I love telling this story, people always ask “How the hell did the two of you… one from Detroit, the other Lagos, Nigeria, manage to find each other in San Antonio, TX?” Records show that @IgboSwag started following me, @DaRealChrisReed on twitter sometime in July … he answered a blind tweet that I sent out in August. I had just made the decision to re-launch my boutique PR firm and was going to do a twitpic tour of my day. He’d obviously been amused and invited me to happy hour at a bar here in San Antonio. Coming from Detroit […]

Who is a Sports Fanatic?

I don’t have any sports fanatics in my life, however, I am trying to introduce my four year old son to sports because he seems like someone who would love sports, heck he already tries to watch hockey when I am flicking the channels. It’s funny to watch my son get right into the game that is on tv, he has a competitive nature for sure! I was thinking that there are all sorts of live sports events around for everyone and I wasn’t sure if anyone of you have a sports fanatic in your life or maybe you are […]

Tiffany’s Story

I wanted to share this story with you because I read about it over on one of my fave blog sites and well this is very important information to share! This story and details are all taken from Tiffany’s own story website and are not something I have personally adjusted in anyway. Tiffany was diagnosed in August 2009 with a rare form of cancer called Ocular Melanoma. This is a very rare type of cancer of the eye. Doctors told her at the time that due to the size of the tumor the best course of action was enucleation, or […]

Who’s Looking For My Texas Friend?

I don’t normally check into what searches people are doing to get to my blog nor do I always check with Lijit Stats to see what people are searching when they are on my blog but the other day when the Lijit Stats email hit my inbox I figured I would take a peek and here are the only two searches that were completed on my blog and done within the past 2-3 days “texas friend” and “best friend“. So the only person who comes to mind here is my friend MommaDJane who spent a few days with me last […]
