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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

A Day In My Life…

I am a single mom again this week, so that makes me responsible for getting the kids to school on time and changing my work hours to later hours (ie rush hour traffic). The traffic is worse than I’ve ever seen it before on the later drive into work. I truly don’t get it because […]

Technology: My Nemesis

In less than one week I have managed to crash virtually every program on my work computer, crash my work email (twice), talk to 5 different people in the IT department for help (some who finally had to give up), break the biggest printer in my department, spend 2 weeks trying to follow instructions to […]

Name Calling

With a name like Stephanie, I have had my fair share of nicknames in the past. From the obvious, “Steph” or “Stephy”, to the childish playground ones, “Step-On-Me”. I’ve always had sort of a strange view of nicknames. I’ve thought about this many times in the past and I always notice that the people who […]

Going Back Again?

I was cleaning out my desk the other day and I found all my old journals from elementary, junior high, high school and college. And I remembered how much I used to love to write. I literally wrote all the time. Actually, I was always much better with written words than I was at speaking […]

Holiday Happenings

HAPPY DECEMBER! First, I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I know we did and I know we have so much to be thankful for. It’s sometimes easy to take blessings for granted and this season is always good to make a point to be truly grateful. I feel like a lot has gone on […]

Oh Houston…

How I love thee! Let me count the ways… Yes, we are back home after our holiday trip to Arizona to visit the in-laws. Whenever I travel, no matter where I seem to go, I am always ready to go home. I’m not sure if this is because I am older and just like being […]
