How To :: Create Spooktacular Halloween Family Fun

Halloween has always been somewhat of a national holiday around our house. We go full throttle on the spooky décor, our Far North Dallas neighborhood turns into “Scare City Central,” and we always get slammed with nearly 100 trick-or-treaters seeking all varieties of “fun size” candy bars every October 31.

Always Be the Best Dressed Mom in the Room

I once had a girlfriend tell me “it’s always better to be overdressed than under dressed.”  Over the years I’ve had the chance to be both on many occasions, and thinking back – she’s absolutely right.  I much prefer being overdressed in any situation.  As a SAHM who also homeschools, there are plenty of days […]

It’s Football Season – High Five The Coaches’ Kids

Last year I wrote the post It’s Football Season–Hug a Coach’s Wife. At last check it had almost 200,000 Facebook shares! I never expected it would touch so many coaching families, but I guess sometimes we just need to know someone out there, even if it’s in internet land, gets us. Coaches’ wives have a unique […]

Mom Confessions :: On Raising Middle Schoolers

I lived through those newborn days where my baby was confused about night/day and I felt like I could never sleep, it actually felt like it would never end. Then I lived through the terrible twos when they started at the age of one, not at two like the parenting book said! I also lived through […]
