At first I wasn’t going to post about it, but then I thought, “Jen, this was KINDA a really big little moment in your life.” If you know me, you know these 2 things: First: I believe that all the wrong turns led me to the right place, and second, […]
WWE Summer Slam the Fiend – Fire Fly Fun House – this is my confession.
Fiend or friend, maybe both. I grew up NOT watching WWE Wrestling… and I HAVE BEEN MISSING OUT! Now, let me tell you, I grew up in St. Petersburg, Fl and lived in the Tampa Bay Area for nearly 40 years. I had numerous “sightings” of wrestlers, heck, I even […]
Summer is nearing an end…
This summer, we took it easy, REALLY EASY, and the kiddo thanked me. Since we homeschool, I usually attempt to schedule some schoolwork during the summer. Nothing too crazy, just a bit of reading, and math. My usual goal is to have 20-30 lessons complete by the end go July, […]
Good financial advice – The Benefits of renting a house.
Say it with me, “Renting is not your forever home.” When we moved to Austin Texas just over three years ago, we knew we weren’t going to buy a house. We had just read the Dave Ramsey book, Total Money Makeover, and we were looking to budget our money, manage […]
A very merry unbirthday!

3 years in Texas, it’s starting to feel like home.
The kiddo was at camp last week. She had such a great time. Making new friends, trying new things, cool and exciting experiences, and making memories. This week she’s at rock band camp. Hard to believe that we’ve been in Texas for 3 years now. THREE YEARS! I miss the […]
Universal Yums! Subscription Snack Service
Since we homeschool, I try to find creative ways to make pretty much EVERYTHING a learning opportunity. Sure, it might get tiresome for the rest of the family, because there’s always something to learn about, but sometimes… it’s FUN! Right? Other times, learning can be- YUMMY. We’ve recently ordered a […]
Homeschooling and summertime.
It’s almost the end of the year for school kids all over the United States. I’ve heard some moms and dads complain about what to do with their kids while they have off for the summertime. Sure there might be a family vacation or two, but that won’t keep the […]
Elephants in TEXAS!
I’ve always loved elephants. They were featured in a few Disney animated classics, and are part of my childhood. As a kid, I got to ride an elephant at Busch Gardens, in Florida. It was the 70’s and we weren’t as well informed as we are now. Elephants also happen […]
