We Sort of Just Bought a House…WHAT?!

Most people plan their lives and goals and dreams. Most people plan to buy a home, have a baby, buy a new car, change jobs, go on vacation, etc. Most people are not me and Tim. Let’s recap to give you some idea of where we’re coming from: Our first house we decided to buy […]

Southern Girl: Confirmed!

First, let me preface this post by saying that I was born, raised and currently reside in the South. I have never lived in a climate in which I have not been able to swim in a pool for at least 7-8 months out of the year. I have never known winter to last more […]

That Time I Hit A Bus

Oh, right. That was TODAY! Yep, you read that right, I hit a Metro bus today. In my Brand. New. Car. In my defense, the buses in Downtown Houston are terrible drivers and will run you off the road. And also it was really foggy this morning, though that actually didn’t play into this incident […]

Irrational Fear: The Elevator

I’ll admit I have an irrational fear of elevators.  And getting sucked out my window by a huge storm, but that’s an entirely different subject. Working on the 28th floor in one of the largest buildings downtown though, it is a necessity to use them.  Also working downtown, nearly everyone you know has a story […]

Hair Confession

I hate washing my hair.  Like I literally despise washing my hair. In an effort to cut back on washing it, I tried cutting it off.  By cutting it off, I meant 7 inches off the length.  I thought maybe less hair would be less wash time.  Nope. Then I tried the “No Poo” method. […]

The Cheer Mom (aka THAT MOM)

If you are “that” cheer mom, you may not want to read any further….. Last chance, click away from this blog…. Okay, let’s get started. We’ve all read the stories over the years about the over zealous mother of a cheerleader and their competitions.  I can honestly say I wondered if these mothers really did […]


After many hours spent searching for the “perfect” theme and deciding what I wanted, Krystyn at Krizzy Designs was able to put together something that was exactly what I envisioned.  She is insanely talented so if anyone wants a makeover, I suggest heading her way!  Plus I’ve known her since high school so I knew […]

Getting a Makeover

If you know me at all, you know I thrive on change.  Change is exciting and daring and I’m always changing something – my hair cut or color, new house projects, habits, meals, events, etc.  I like to think that’s what keeps my darling husband on his toes because he never quite knows what he […]


Hello, my name is Stephanie and I’m a recovering Diet Coke addict. Recently I decided to give up my deeply rooted Diet Coke habit and stop with soft drinks all together.  Most days this is not a problem and I’m only drinking water aside from my morning coffee. It also helps that Tim and Karys […]
