Car Shopping the Right Way

Car Shopping the Right Way**Sponsored Post** Some of you might remember that fateful New Year's Eve when, while on my way in to work, a semi ran me off the road. Ok maybe not - but I do. It was terrifying. And everything kinda happened all at once and in slow motion at the same time. The semi swerved into my lane... my tank of a car started spinning out of control... Thank goodness that the streets were mostly empty that {keep reading}

The things we hang on to

It is a feeling of liberation mixed with sadness as I swept the last dead cricket out of my storage unit... a 10x30 space once filled to the brink with things I loved is now empty. Four years I've been hanging on to that storage unit and the things left inside. Four years that I've been holding on to "someday I'm going to need these again."   I'm glad that so many of those things went to people who needed them- most {keep reading}

Life Lessons - Part 1

Life Lessons - Part 1Lately I've been avoiding the blinking cursor on a blank page.  Y'all know I go through spells of silence so that's not really new... but lately, I've been seeing life lessons in the strangest of places.. and the thought occurred to me that I could share. Last week... maybe the week before actually, my Facebook feed BLEW UP.  Not with political rantings - although those were there.  Not with horrible news stories that incite anger and emotions from all over the {keep reading}

Captain America: Civil War - {A Slightly off kilter review}

Captain America: Civil War - {A Slightly off kilter review}It is no surprise that I'm a Marvel fan girl.  Definitely not as hard core as some, but a fan nonetheless.  So, when I was offered an opportunity to check out the latest installment in the Marvel Universe, Captain America: Civil War, I jumped at the chance.  Did I care that I had to drive through downtown Austin, during rush hour, taking roughly an hour an a half to drive 23 miles?  Nope.  Did I hesitate to rearrange my evening {keep reading}

Thoughts from the train

Most of y'all know that I've got a new gig that I LOVE.  It does mean that I am working downtown... which has it's upsides... Like working from the rooftop patio during nice weather... And my view from my office space: It does have it's downsides too... But I'm not fighting traffic at least because, as you know if you FaceStalk me, I take the train.  And the train commute is nothing if not entertaining. So over the last few weeks, I've jotted down a {keep reading}

Time for me

I shared a bit the other day about an amazing women's retreat at camp connect and the revelations from that weekend will continue to unfold here periodically.  One of the things I realized during some of those quiet moments of contemplation was … [Read more...]

Camping on a whole new level

I never went to a traditional sleep away camp growing up. I mean I went to dance camp and I remember that being at SMU for a week away from the parents but camp CAMP? Never happened. I think a lot of that is because it wasn't really needed. Mom was home … [Read more...]

Welcome to the Dark Side

The last time I bought a laptop, it was 2007. I was in marriage #2... Just started a new job... I bought a HUGE HP because it had 10-key keypad and ran Windows Vista. A lot of things have changed since then. That lappy was so big it was't exactly … [Read more...]

Running late

Last night we decided to run to a newly vacated duplex to evaluate its condition and schedule all the turn around activities since the new tenant is scheduled to move in next weekend. We were all going to go, and the plan was to be there by 9:30am … [Read more...]

Four Words

I don't recall the first time I saw the image below but it has stuck with me ever since. Actually... it wasn't the image. The image I just googled for, but the words I read years ago.  It was the imagery that stuck... and the idea that an … [Read more...]
