Our 2015 (and beyond) Goals for Our Son

This post isn't about me, but about my son. I have been overweight for so many years.  Even in my younger years, I wasn't 'fat' but was bigger than the other girls.  I know first hand how cruel and unhealthy being fat is.  I do NOT want that for my son.  Anyone that sees Truett, doesn't think of him as fat but as a second grade 8 year old ...

Reaching 19 Years with the Help of Love and Vows

When you meet and marry your husband the way I did, nobody expects you to stay married. Nobody.  And when you marry a cowboy, it makes for an interesting ride full of ups, downs, and even a few "bucked off" moments.  Through it all though, you remember why you married and how love & vows played the biggest roles in keeping you ...

2011 Little Moments

While I didn't do much in the blogosphere in 2011, it was one of my most cherished years.  I was there for my kids.  I was there for every single moment that was important to them and me.  A few 'little moments' that meant the world to me throughout 2011 include: Seeing my son be crowned football king and fall festival king all their sports ...

Cars 2, Mater’s Mission, and Fun Prizes!

I'm so bummed that the fire has kept me from taking Truett to see the opening for Cars 2 in our town.  I plan to take him soon but in the mean time, we can have fun with Mater's Secret Mission, by sending codes messages and winning prizes. Walmart has launched Mater's Secret Mission on their Facebook page and movie vouchers, exclusive ... Continue Reading

Finding My Mojo, Finally

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 ... Continue Reading

As One Goes In, One Will Go Out

It's hard to believe that I'll be 35 this month.  Even harder to believe that I have a son who will graduate next year, with another son who will be in Pre-K that same school year.  Where has all the time gone.......Tyler got his senior ring the other day and it's one of those small things that makes you realize just how old your son is.    I love ...

Rodeo, Cheesecake, and Our Flag

Every year, we are given tickets to attend the San Angelo PRCA Rodeo.  It's always a great rodeo but this year, it was much more for me.  They added a couple of things that gave me goosebumps and a new appreciation of the Flag.  It started with this man here, the rodeo announcer, who is there every year and has a lovely voice to say the ...

A Whole Bunch of Handsome

What a beautiful day it was here in Texas!  We were in the 60's and took advantage by cooking outside.  All the boys were around so it was the perfect time to be with family.  Truett posed for photos, Tyler played with Truett, my man was cooking up a storm and making silly faces, and Toby sat around being being a typical 14 year old ...

Six Flag San Antonio

Glued at the Hip

I can remember Tyler when he was little, before Toby came along, doing everything with his Dad.  It was just them two, all the time. Now it's Truett and his Dad. No matter what we're doing, where we're at, them two are glued to each other.  It makes me happy to see that bond.  I'm so blessed to live the life that I live and have the family that I ...
