Sassy in San Antonio with Sarah

Here is another edition to our  "Sassy in San Antonio"  series. It's where I ask friends to tell their things around town that make them feel sassy! This week we are hearing from Sarah. She is a very good friend of my twin mom friend Erin.  Do y'all remember her?  She is the former news anchor and reporter who I met in my SAAMOM group.  She's been posting on her Facebook page how much she loved going to her pilates class. She said it was the best workout she had ever had in her life and she had become really good friends with the owner. Well, I wanted to get to know her a little better, so … [Read more...]

Model Home Design Inspiration

Where do you get your home design inspiration? Pinterest? Magazines like Southern Living or House Beautiful? HGTV or websites like Houzz? Well, if you are like most of my girlfriends, it's a combination of all of them. And of course, the thing they love the most is seeing designs in person at a new model home! When we were talking about this topic the other day at lunch, they all agreed that there's nothing like seeing designs inside a home. There is just something about all of these ideas and trends coming together. And we all thought that feeling the textures in the … [Read more...]

Sassy in San Antonio with Kaycie

We have week two of "Sassy in San Antonio." It's a little series on the blog that finds out what my girlfriend's favorite things are to do in town. This week, I asked Kaycie to share her thoughts on San Antonio. I first met her at playgroup when my son was about four or five and her daughters were about the same age.  I can't remember exactly but I knew the minute I met her that we would get along nicely! She's laid back and doesn't take things too seriously, and then there's that mutual love of wine! I thought it would be great to get her perspective on SA since she has moved … [Read more...]

A Day at the Home and Garden Show

I went to the Home and Garden Show on Sunday.  I took only one of my three kids with me since she was the only one that likes crowds.  Let's say she's sassy like that! I had a feeling that the spring version of the H&G Show was going to have a huge attendance. I knew people would be out in force to get ideas to spruce up their dwellings after this long, cold winter.  And boy was I right! It was crowded. If you are used to having three kids out and about with you, and you just happen to have only one of them with you, then you might as well be on vacation! The wall to wall … [Read more...]

One Sassy Lady of the Lake

Last week when I attended the opening performance of Monty Python’s Spamalot at the Woodlawn Theatre, I was looking forward to a night of great laughs. I had no idea that I would spend most of the drive home talking about the singing! We met my friend and fellow blogger, Jen Eskridge and her husband Rob for a night out on the town. She had never been to the Woodlawn Theatre and was looking forward to seeing the Deco District where it is located. And I was still gushing over seeing the Producers a few months ago. In short, we were ready to be entertained! Spamalot is a musical that is … [Read more...]
