Libraries & Magnolias

This week, the Senator and I did a really fun thing.  We got together with my parents and hosted a little get together for a dear friend of ours, Sean Burrage, who is the President of a University in the Southeastern part of our…

Bringing it up to speed

Can’t believe it’s been almost six months to the day since I have posted here but it certainly wasn’t for lack of something to say.  Quite the opposite actually.  So much has happened since March that I thought I would do a brief re-cap…

Summer.

This summer has flown by much to quickly.  When the roofers showed up at dawn this morning (because our poor roof has been pummeled repeatedly by recent hail storms), it reminded me of just how early my day begins when the school bell rings….

Here’s to the Men!

Thankful today for the incredible men in my life! I thought about writing a little bit about each one, but really was at a loss for just how awesome these guys are and how much they mean to me.  SO, I decided to jot…

Bringing It Up To Speed

So much has happened since my last post…back in, uh…. February.  Not in any particular order…. 1. There is a new driver in our family. I can not describe the plethora of emotions I am feeling right now. I would love to hear the…

This Lady

Today is my birthday.  I have never been one to want to celebrate getting older, although lately I have found myself celebrating life.  But, today….. Today, I am going to celebrate this lady. My momma. ….because I entered the world weighing 10lbs and 2…

Peace

Can’t believe a month or more has passed since I last posted here.  Life is busy.  My children our busy.  The Senator is busier…especially since we are heading into the Legislative season soon. We took a breather from the busy last month and hightailed…

Road Trip

A few weeks ago we went down to Dallas to watch the OU-Texas football game. The kids went with us as has been our family tradition for the past few years, and this year was no exception. We stayed at a really fun hotel…

Fifteen Minutes

So, I took a visual tour of my own, dormant blog the other day and loved re-reading some of my older posts.  Not because they were some brilliant masterpiece or anything, but because it was a brief record of the past few years and…

Southern Comfort

We have just returned home from a road trip through the deep South and I must confess, it exceeded all my expectations. I am not one to like car rides, but to see this lush country-side, their historic points of interest, and major universities combined…

Twins

Recently we took the Senator’s 85 year old mother to Colorado to see her 6 month old great grandchildren. It was really neat watching them all interact and even more fun when the Senator and I babysat the twins.  You talk about hard work….

Feel free to jump in…

The Senator’s daughter wants a trampoline.  She has wanted one for as long as I can remember.   In fact, the word trampoline has been included on every Christmas and Birthday wish list for as long as she has been able to write…. Yet,…
