Hey y'all!  I hope you had a GREAT Labor Day Weekend!  Now it's time to get in the swing of Fall and I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this time of year!!! Why??? I love the cooler weather, the color of the leaves, the holidays (especially Halloween) and most of all...

I just finished reading the Slight Edge, by Jeff Olson (I highly recommend it!) and one of the things that resonated with me the most was this: "If you want success, you need to double your rate of failure."   Kind of seems counterintuitive doesn't it?  But...

Hey y'all!  I know I usually post recipes on Sunday or Monday so I'm a little late to the game this week...

At some point in your life (if it hasn't happened already which I find very doubtful) people are going to talk about you...

Hey y'all!!!! FINALLY, I have gotten all the technical difficulties straightened out!!  Don't ask me what that was all about because I really have no idea (my husband always says I don't deserve technology) BUT the point is we are Rockin' and Rollin'!!   I don't know when school starts for y'all, but here in Kansas (yup, that's right, we moved to Kansas while I was MIA) it has already started!  And I know with all of the craziness that comes along with this time of year, you and your family could...

I know, crazy right?  I'm from Texas and that just isn't an option there but here, in the Pacific Northwest, it is a rare thing to find air conditioning in someone's house. So, not only do we flock outside and try to find a hint of shade, we go to Target or to the movie theatre where there's air conditioning because they aren't insane.  Also, we don't cook!  We avoid it as...

I know I am a bit behind with these weekly recipes but the holiday weekend threw me off a bit. We spent our Memorial Day running 3 miles with Wear Blue, Run to Remember, remembering soldiers who have given the ultimate sacrifice, followed by having a BBQ with friends and family and we finished the day off by playing with our kids outside in the sun. My husband was explaining Memorial Day to our 4 year old and what he said was this: We go to Run to Remember to honor the Soldiers who...

It is Memorial Day weekend!  For many of you, that means time off of work, family time, road trips, sunshine, barbecues and parties...

Vulnerability. Shame.  Fear.  Failure.  Disappointment.  Heartbreak. We have ALL experienced it. If you are alive, you have felt it.  If you are alive, you have been through it. This does NOT mean you are weak or frail or insignificant. Just the opposite!!! It means you have LIVED. It means you have LOVED.  It means you have TRIED.  It means you have DREAMED. Brene Brown says that this is how you measure COURAGE. Courage does NOT belong to those who hide behind the veil of perfectionism.  Courage does NOT belong to those who...
