I live in the grand state of Texas! I' love Texas!! I've learned it's hotter than the devils tongue...more beautiful than a fresh baked cup cake....and friendlier than the high school counselor that gave you the creeps. Come share my adventures in life. I'm a mother of three beautiful one's & two hairy ones (my doggies). I must also mention that I'm the CEO of the family. I've learned that life is more than 'my fine shirt just got soaked' bath times, 'hey we are so running fashionable late again' swimming lessons, your most recent 'break down' in the laundry room (yes I'm talking to you; now put down the dryer lint slowly), the latest 'does my butt look big' moment, or even that rock awesome meal you cooked last night. Life is random, sexy, unbelievable, predictable and darn cool. Lets get crafty, create, explore Texas, and have some pretty sweet experiences!

Helping to light up your holiday…

The turkey’s been gobbled, the pie plate’s been licked, and I’m guessing that most of you have hung the stockings rather close to a roaring fire (or wherever you can get them to hang)…what to do next?  There are several very fun things you can do while enjoying this joyous holiday season!

The first thing I recommend is heading over to BYU for Christmas Around the World.  I have been to this.  It is stinking amazing.  It has folk dancing, singing, musicians, and lots of sense stimulating action from 17 countries.  Tickets for this event are available through the Marriott Center Ticket Office .  For more info click HERE!

Another singing sensation to catch is One Magic Christmas @ the SCERA Center for the Arts.  It’s the SCERA’s Youth Theater holiday revue.
