Overnight Stay Sweepstakes Giveaway!

Well just like doing my taxes, I have procrastinating in having a Livin' Sassy sweepstakes giveaway for my readers! Can y'all forgive me? Does it help to know that the  winner of a random drawing will be able to spend a night at the elegant and recently totally renovated Emily Morgan Hotel in downtown San Antonio? I went to an event there a few months ago and just fell in love all over again with this hotel. Since the renovations, the lobby has a real hip and trendy vibe while reminding you that you are in one of a kind historic location. And the Alamo is literally right next … [Read more...]

Forties are Fabulous

Our Sassy Mom models are back and this edition features my friends that are all mothers of twins who just so happen to all be over forty and fabulous!   We were finally able to find time to meet and pick out clothes to model and take pictures for Livin' Sassy.             It is so hard to schedule busy moms who are on vacation, have swim team practice and play dates and family in town and not to mention kids home from school for the summer.  We finally found a window of opportunity this past Saturday morning to meet and take … [Read more...]

Fiesta Fashions at Market Square

Fiesta is almost here! For my non-San Antonio readers, Fiesta is 11 days worth of events that San Antonio's local non-profits as well as military units put on to help raise money for our community. The proceeds are targeted towards education and scholarships to help our local youth.

The Bright Shawl-A Tea Room and So Much More

I met a friend at the Bright Shawl for lunch recently. I haven't been in awhile so I was excited to see if anything had changed since my last visit. I spent a lot of time in that beautiful building. I was a member of the Junior League of San Antonio for years and I am currently a sustainer. A sustainer is basically a "retired" member that still pays dues to support the League. I love this organization. I knew exactly four people in San Antonio when we moved here over 14 years ago. I had given up my career to be a stay at home Mom and had a 4 month old baby and a husband that worked all the … [Read more...]
