Who doesn’t love watching reality TV? Seems like every single channel has some sort of “reality based” show to serve up to the masses, who religiously tune in weekly. I remember some of the first reality TV shows. I loved the first season of the Real World, there was the […]
Breaking up with your closet.
Ever stare at the clothes hanging in your closet or folded in your dresser drawers and say out loud to yourself, “I have nothing to wear!” Yeah, me too… When this happens, it might be time to break up; and I’ve done this a few times over the years, however […]
I’ve been busy, homeschooling the kiddo- and well, most days we’ve been rather busy with schooling, outings, extra curricular and social engagements. What does this have to do with Veteran’s Day? Simply put, in America I’m free to educate my child in a manner I deem correct. I source our […]
I actually met Robert Smith of the Cure at LAX!
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 […]
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 […]

Bees, save the bees… please! Open a BEE BAR!
If I had a bit of land, I think I’d want to have an apiary. Just a small one, nothing commercial size. I’d want to surround my hypothetical property with a decent variety of flowering trees, bushes, herbs, and plants. Build a lovely little bee friendly kingdom. However, I live […]
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 […]
Prytania Cottage at the Creole Gardens in New Orleans, Louisiana
I’ve been to NOLA more than a couple of handfuls of times. It’s the kind of city that lures my family toward it with good food, interesting architecture, a colored history, and music filling the air. New Orleans has so much more to offer than “stumbling around the streets with […]
