Working Women Wednesday #274: Allow MORE Time Than Anticipated For Tasks.
Working Wonder Woman Wednesday Tip #274
We've all found ourselves over committed and overwhelmed as a result of trying to fit too much onto our plate for work, family, others, and life in a single day. We can only physically and mentally handle so much in a 24 hour period and sleep needs to be allotted in there somewhere as well. When planning your day, be sure to allow MORE time than needed per task to avoid running out of time or being late. Constant interruptions...

Beautiful Pantry Poetry
I saw a post on a pantry make-over using what you have around the house and it motivated me to do my own! I can do so well and stay on top of the kids to keep it tidy and then someway, somehow life goes at the speed of light, my nagging fades, and I'm left with this: It's not the worst pantry I've ever seen but it's most certainly not the best either. It's hard for me to find...

Working wonder woman tip #357: Ask for help!
The most successful women in business and life surround themselves with a team and support system. One can't do it all...ALONE. As women, we often think we can go in, conquer the world, and make a natural, organic, non-GMO yet delicious dinner the same evening and with a smile. While great as a goal to aim for, reality hits and we've barely scratched the surface of the day's to do list. So what's a Working Wonder Woman to do? Call...

The Flu Cured My Family
The flu cured my family
My eyes became itchier and itchier as a familiar yet unwelcome feeling gradually encompassed my body from head to toe. "Nooooo. This can't be happening to me! Not now. I don't have time to be sick right now. This is not the right time!" I was sitting in a high school cafeteria for my daughter's chess tournament surrounded by 480 plus students, their parents, and some siblings. I changed purses that morning before rushing across the Houston highways and didn't...

My Word for 2016 is LIVE!
word for 2016 is live
I've seen many posts about choosing one word for 2016 and decided to choose my word: LIVE! This past year posed many changes: moving full-time to a home on the lake in a quaint town outside of the city limits, transitioning from homeschooling my 3 girls to placing them in public school, oil industry, family and parenting challenges and more. My view is serene and allows me to sit still and focus while I'm at home alone at times during...

Goals for 2016

The new year is upon us and we want to have a happy and healthy beginning. Resolutions are great and give us a goal but often times we overextend ourselves and end up feeling overwhelmed and defeated. We begin January excited and pumped with all our proper equipment, food and techie goodies then hit a plateau in month or so when reality and busy schedules creep up on us. Choose to make this new year your happiest yet. Set realistic...

San Diego & LaJolla California Trip
San Diego & LaJolla California Trip
We FINALLY got away for a belated anniversary trip (better late than never) and chose San Diego as our destination after a quick consult with my girlfriends who travel much more than me!  My hubby’s been on a few golf trips there and loved the weather so I had to experience it firsthand. Hotel De Coronado was our original destination but my friend who lived in La Jolla suggested we stay at La Valencia since we would be sans kids...

7 Tips For An Organized Pantry
7 Tips For An Organized Pantry
After seeing posts on pantry organization and ideas on Pinterest I was motivated to do my own. I can do so well and remind the kids to keep it tidy and then someway, somehow life goes at the speed of light, my nagging fades, and I’m left with this: Before Pantry: [su_row][su_column size="1/2"][/su_column] [su_column size="1/2"][/su_column][/su_row] It’s not the worst pantry I’ve ever seen but not the best either.

Wanna save your green drink? Seal it!
Wanna Save Your Green Drink? Seal It!
Wanna save your juice? Seal it! Juicing is a great way to work in more greens and fruit into your daily diet. What's not so great is the amount of time spent on juicing, especially during week days mornings when time is a precious.  Some of our juice recipes contain 11 different ingredients and that takes up to a pretty good chunk of my morning routine time! I heard about a sealer that removes the oxygen from the container and...
