I am a bit of an old soul and tend to rail against modernity, all while surfing the web, drinking coffee (sourced thousands of miles away) in my air conditioned office. Yes, I am spoiled. I complain about the ills of society, yet I […]
Character has many definitions There are two definitions that I would like to talk about that I think gets confused today… at least one definition seems to dominate over the other. When we talk about building Character, what I believe we are referring […]
If you go by the idea that 10,000 hours of practice makes you an expert, then my wife and I qualify as child rearing experts, right? Wrong. Maybe it would if kids did not change the rules every 24 hours. My wife and […]
Let’s talk about something controversial today What is up with male fashion? Before I go too far I have to make a disclosure, If you peruse through my wardrobe you would undoubtedly say, “this man is not allowed to have an opinion on the subject […]
Who does not like a good motivational quote? A one sentence line that sums up an abstract idea of how we can excel. Well, there is always that guy, you know the one, (or in my family, 7 different ones 😉 ) who […]
Unlike most folks I do not make New Year resolutions Not because I don’t believe in resolutions, but because I know me and after Christmas I am not going to be hitting the gym every day, nor will I be likely to skip Netflix […]
Having trained hundreds of people I found the most fun you can have at the gym comes from the least productive activity. People Watching. Yes, you are being watched and probably judged every time you work out. 😉
My laptop has finally bitten the dust… I am writing this on a portable keyboard and my phone. This is proving to be an exercise in patience…. So, this entry is my 2 cents about general fitness. A recent survey found that most […]

Hi! We are so glad you’re here! My husband and I started this site to share the little adventures of our growing family!
I’m just a mom of three adorable little Critters. I have a charming husband who inspired me to go way out of my comfort zone to meet new people and challenge myself to try something new and adventurous every week. What better way than to make a website and share it with everyone, yikes! Yes, my husband is the adventurous one….and I am not. BUT! Stick around, cuz I’m really trying to explore new ways of staying healthy, being frugal and finding clothes that perfectly fit a 6’2″ Texas mama. All that and simultaneously trying to raise 3 kidlets under the age of 3... More coffee, anyone?
Anyway, we live in the suburbs of the beautiful Lone Star State! We are always trying to find better ways to live a little healthier and become a better people every day. Our ultimate goal is to get a small farm, with a chicken or two and maybe a small goat, because, you know, we’ve never had animals before and that would be cool and exciting.
So, please join us and learn together as we travel outside our comfort zone to make our families a little healthier and a little happier!
