I recently went to Kerrville Texas for the first time ever. I was born and raised in Texas, so there are no excuses why I shouldn’t have visited before. Kerrville is a charming town, and so is the quaint airbnb we stayed at. If you haven’t been to Kerrville I highly suggest visiting. A friend of mine Lauren from Toast From The Host invited me out along with some other blogger friends, Hurried Hostess, and Hello There Love.
Have you every wanted something so bad and it just doesn’t work out? Has there been a time that a situation occurred and you have no idea how it turned out the way it did? You probably have heard the saying that “things happen for a reason.” Well, I believe it’s very true.
I am a new fan of the color red. I’ve said this before, but I didn’t think red looked that great on me. I love the color red now. I like to wear things that are classy and red is a great color to portray that. We are at the beginning stage of changing seasons and also changing our wardrobe to spring. Although, it’s been that crazy weather in Texas where one day it’s nice and somewhat warm weather, and the next week it’s rainy and cold. Who can’t wait for spring weather? Me! Unfortunately, it’s still “pants weather” so I’m showing off a cute look that you can get right now and for a great affordable price.
Homeschooling can be scary! Just saying “homeschooling” freaks me out and that is what I’m doing. I’m still in shock that I’m now saying I’m a homeschooling mom. I’m not going to lie, but I’m relieved that I’m homeschooling especially with all of the shootings that have been going on in schools all over. Homeschooling allows me to be in control on what my child is learning. I also have control over whom my child associates with. Honestly, there are a lot of positives but it’s not easy. The short amount of time I have homeschooled I’ve learned a lot about what is helpful and what doesn’t work. Every child and parent is different but this is what I’ve learned so far in our homeschooling journey.
It has been on my heart to spend some real time with God for quite some time now. What I mean by “real time” is a full day devoted to God like a retreat. That means no phone, no social media, no work, and leaving all responsibilities for a day. Leaving work and my responsibilities for a day means more work for me when I come back. The willingness was there, but I couldn’t ever find the time. Life would always get in the way. The truth is that we will always have things to do. Being busy is not of the spirit but of the flesh. I have written about how being busy is not how God intended us to live our lives. Busy is another word for distraction. Distraction is what will keep us from God.

Valentine’s day is coming up next week. What colors will you be wearing? The colors red, maroon, pink, and black are some typical colors to wear. Although, you can make any color look great with the right accessories.
I think we would all love to meet our fitness Goals? I know that I would! How many of you have a hard time staying on track? I definitely do. It never fails that life gets in the way. It’s difficult to stay accountable and to continue to stay in a routine. When I see can see the results, like gaining muscle tone or losing pounds, it’s easier for me to keep moving forward. It doesn’t always work out that way though. Sometimes you are making progress, but you can’t see it on the scale or on your body. What if there was something to help you track your progress? Great news, there is a body analyzer scale that not only shows your weight, but your bone mass, water, muscle, and fat mass. Oh, and it even tells you the weather!
You wouldn’t believe how many kids lack the basic knowledge of life skills. You have eighteen year olds that have no idea how to cook, load a dishwasher, iron, do their laundry, check the oil in the car, have basic organizational skills, budgeting skills, and etc. The list goes on and on. The public school doesn’t do a good job in teaching life skills, although I’ve seen some schools trying to improve in this area. These are some of the skills that our kids will need to know for the rest of their life. Here is a list of skills to get started on.
