A Little Sassy Update

I wanted to give y'all a little update about what's been going on in my personal life. It seems like I've been blogging here and there and not really letting my readers know what I've been up to lately. No one really prepares you for the grief you feel when you lose your momma.  It's gut wrenching, lonely, and no one really wants to talk about it that much. At first, I wanted to gloss it over like everything was just fine; always the pollyanna.  It didn't help much. You can't run away from grief, trust me, Lord knows I tried. You have to take it like a big girl. And one day, if you are … [Read more...]

I Guess it Was a Half Marathon

Have you ever walked a half marathon with a stomach virus? Well, I don't recommend that you try it anytime soon! I trained this summer and fall with a group of ladies from my neighborhood. We all have kids of various ages and tried our best to carve out a little time for exercise. There is nothing better than getting up early on Saturday mornings and walking along the Museum Reach of the Riverwalk and beyond.  We would be done in time to buy some fresh goods from the Farmer's Market. It was heavenly! And then school started and everyone's schedules got a little too busy. There were … [Read more...]

When Did You Stop Dancing?

I went to a wedding this past weekend. It was held in the Dallas area where I lived for over twelve years. I made lots of friendships over that amount of time. It started out as a family trip. We booked a hotel room in Frisco that had an indoor pool. And two of our kids ended up getting a virus and stayed behind with my husband. It was just me and one of my 8 year old twin daughters, Savannah. She couldn't believe that it was going to be the two of us. It is pretty rare to spend so much time with one child when you have three children. The weather forecast called for heavy … [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...]

Joli Boutique

I met my friend Monica for lunch the other day. I couldn't wait to sit down and talk to her about all the new things going on in her life. Her kids go to the same school as mine, but we usually only have time to wave at each other in the car pool lane! I first met her when her husband Tommy coached my then 5 year son old's flag football team at the YMCA. And they would eventually figure out that my husband and Tommy actually played against each other in college football. They had to have tackled each other while Tommy was at Sul Ross and Steve was playing for Austin College. They … [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. It showcases San Antonio's diverse and rich culture through over 100 events beginning Thursday, April 19th until Sunday, April 29th. Those are fancy words for "It's a party!" And a very fun party.
