I’m sure you’ve noticed the lack of updates here. Aside from merging A Cowboy’s Wife into My Wooden Spoon, I’ve just been trying to catch-up, gather my thoughts, and create a plan. I think I’ve finally found my mojo and it’s refreshing. Merging and letting one blog go has taken a huge weight off of me and I feel somewhat free.
SO WHAT’S GOING ON WITH ME?
I’m actually sitting in San Francisco as I write this. I had the opportunity to hang out with the folks from Blurb and I have to say, I walked away with inspiration and creative ideas for me, you, and my local community. Blurb allows you to create books - Photo books, Text books, or Photo & Text books. The quality is OUTSTANDING! I’ve always wanted to make one with our cowboy photos but today, I knew that creating a cookbook with all my family’s recipes would take priority of wants. How cool is that to self publish your own cookbook? Anyways, I’ll get into more Blurb later on because they are coming out with some more fun things and innovative apps that I can’t wait to share. And just to keep in full disclosure – I was asked to be an ambassador or Blurbarian and proudly accepted. They flew me out (at their expense) and shared their story and it’s pretty great I have to say. I think you’ll love the ideas I came up with for creating a book!!
Easter was great! Truett had a blast hunting eggs with friends and came away with tons of candy and fun toys. I love seeing their excitement. We went to my friend Sheri’s house, who is a great cook! She had so much food that I left feeling like a stuffed pig.
How was your Easter?
My 17 year old had prom recently and looked absolutely handsome. I can’t believe he turns 18 this year and will be a senior. I FEEL OLD!! Truett starts Pre-K this year and I have to say, I’m COMPLETELY EXCITED!! I love him to death but my goodness, he’s a handful right now and really needs physical & mental stimulation that school can provide. Socializing & playing with kids, learning all sorts of new things, and just being around others will be great for him.
My weight is going okay. Because I’ve missed several sessions due to a busy life and travel, I’m not where I want to be but I’m still on track and will reach my goal. I’ll get you a more detailed update soon.
I leave to Chicago on Sunday to meet with the folks from Gatorade. I’m really excited because I’m sure many of you already know how much I love sports. I think it’s the perfect company to get to know! I believe we even get to meet NBA Kevin Durant’s Mom! How fun! Although, I must admit that I don’t watch basketball so much. My boys are super excited about me hooking up with Gatorade so I’m the cool Mom of course…and that makes me squeal! It’s hard to look cool to your kids when they’re 15 and 17.
So that’s what’s happening with me. What’s happening with YOU? I want to hear! I want to know what you’ve been doing and what you have planned. SHARE WITH ME!!! I want comments! My new goal is to comment back!!!
Until next time……..
