During high school and my first few years of college, my dream was to work in television. I wanted to be a news reporter. I was going to be the next Dianne Sawyer, and create world changing broadcasts. I soon got a job at a television station as a world news editor, and videographer (sounds pretty ritzy, but believe me it's not). During that time, September 11th occurred. I remember sitting in the newsroom, working with the anchors, and feeling like there was nothing we could do. Television was an amazingly fun job, but I experienced seeing everyone else's sadness everyday. I think I am a little wussy in that area. I wanted to do something else to help others. At the same time, I decided I wanted to go back to Texas (those Texans and their pride). I brought (future) Coach along with me, and decided to go to school to study speech pathology and try to make a difference somehow. Long story short, I married Coach, went to college and grad school, had three babies, and began the amazing journey I am on today.

upcoming season of Friday Night Lights!
I write about how I cope with being a mom of 3, doing a lot on my own, working full time, and keeping my sanity. It is a crazy busy life, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. It may be hectic, but for some reason I love being busy.
I have a quick meals section, featuring ideas and recipes to help you make it through dinnertime when you have to do it in a cinch. (More recipes will be added following basketball season!) Crying babies seem to have helped me figure out ways to speed it up. I try to keep it as healthy as possible, but no promises. I am from the south :)
I write a make up post every Monday which includes reviews of financially friendly cosmetics and products as well as hair styling tips and ideas.
I will also include posts where I discuss crafts I create and use in my school as well as at home with my own children to keep them entertained. Craftiness was passed down to me from my mom. She taught me all I know.
Along with my discussions about my family's everyday adventures, I'm sure there will be a few posts about my crazy cats Kiki and Sleevy. Kiki is the closest thing you can get to having a pet dog and never fails to surprise me while Sleevy is a spaz and plays hard to get. I work so hard to make friends with her.
I love writing, and having a way to share my everyday adventures of being a coach's widow with others. I am new to blogging, so bear with me on the technical stuff. I'm sure it will be a breeze. Not! I will do my best :)
