34th Annual Home and Garden Show

Did you know that the Home and Garden show is next weekend? Not only is it the 34th time it has returned, it’s the biggest show in all of Texas! Now, that’s big! It takes place next weekend from Friday, February 21st until Sunday the 23rd. I love to go and get new ideas for my house. I usually end up going with my girlfriends because my husband is afraid that his “honey do” list might get bigger if goes with me. Here of some highlights of the upcoming show: *Wine tasting and an international food court (I had to mention that first for my sassy readers!) *Pete Nelson of … [Read more...]

MW Blingy T-Shirt Give Away

I met some friends at Morgan's Wonderland this morning. My family has been so many times that I can't count. The twins even had their 5th birthday party there. This  was our  first time to go to their Mom's group program. It is held on the first and third Friday of each month.                 If you aren't familiar with Morgan's Wonderland, it is a theme park in San Antonio that was built for accessibility for everyone. For instance, the merry go round and train are designed specifically for wheelchairs. For guests with … [Read more...]

Magnolia Giveaway

I have the most marvelous magnolia tree in my front yard. It is full of flowers. I can't remember the last time it bloomed so much. A few years ago, I didn't think this tree was going to survive the drought. I am so happy it did. The tree is resilient, like so many wonderful Southern women I know and love. The scent when the wind blows just a little is incredible! It has been way too long so I am having a little give away! In order to enter to win a $25.00 gift card to La Madeleine, comment on this post about your favorite Steel Magnolia character. It can be the one that you are … [Read more...]

Giveaway Winners

Here is the list of winners of the Big Family Small Town Giveaway! Thank you all who entered. What wonderful testaments for growing up in a small town. I am a big city girl now but I love to go back home as often as I can. Some of my friends recently got together for a night out in Kilgore. They posted this on Facebook and I asked them if I could use it to announce the winners. The bunny is not one of my friends. I am pretty sure he had no idea what he was in for in the taking of this picture! Nice bunny! Amazing ladies! Love ya'll. Taste,Trade & Music Fest tickets-Carol I. Gift … [Read more...]

A Genius Giveaway!

I have been having horrible problems with my iMAC this week. I finally made an appointment to take it into the Genius Bar at the Apple Store this afternoon. I was dreading it. After backing up 980,621 items (the actual number) on my new portable drive that holds a gazillion megabytes (I made that up) I unplugged everything and headed to LaCantera. I never realized how much one item meant to me. I was so scared that I was going to drop that thing on the sidewalk right there in front of Chico's. (they have some darling shirts in the window by the way) Every time I walk in the Apple Store, I get … [Read more...]

Gift card winner and my new shirt!

One of my six year old daughters took this picture. The girls wouldn't pose for me after they pulled out the name of our CATO gift card winner. They wanted to take my picture instead. The dog wouldn't quit licking me. She likes my lotion! Congratulations to Norma G. I put it in the mail for you! Don't you love this shirt? It makes me smile. Maybe because I am so far from one of those other real housewives. I am not blonde or skinny.  I don't drive a fancy car or have a big house.  I tend to not throw tables upside down in a crowded restaurant. You know, pretty boring! Send me a note if you … [Read more...]

Ugly Christmas sweater winner announced

I am fairly certain that when I asked for a website for Christmas, the big Stud had no idea what he was in for....like modeling the ugly Christmas sweater winner. I have no idea why it was still hanging in my closet. Actually, it was hanging in the guest room closet where the clothes are stored that I have high hopes of fitting into again. You know, the BK clothes. Before Kids. I find it rather enjoyable to stroll down memory lane with each piece and dream about the times I could actually wear a white linen suit. Now the risk of juice box straw squirting is just too high. The new owner of this … [Read more...]
