I’m Going on A Royal Caribbean Cruise to Cozumel #SeasTheDay


I feel like such a dud because I live on the Gulf Coast, less than an hour from the Galveston TX cruise port and I have never ever been on a cruise. My husband and I actually talked about taking Leandra and Tevin (my last  kiddos at home) on a cruise instead of having a Christmas celebration this year. That's all still up in the air, so when I had the opportunity to join Brandcation for a cruise, I was all in for it. Especially since its the day after my … [Read more...]

Health Tracking Argus iPhone App Review


At the beginning of this year I explained how I did not want to really make resolutions, but I did want to make some life changes. Most of those changes had to do with living healthier.

On top of eating healthier, I have been trying to be more active. I don't want to lose weight, but gain muscle and … [Read more...]

Varsity Cheerleading… Again


This past year Leandra as a junior in high school, had been on the varsity cheerleading team. I am happy to announce that last weekend cheerleader tryouts were held for the 2014-2015 school year. Of course Leandra tried out again. I can remember when she was a little girl no more than 6 years old. She told me that she wanted to be the girl they throw in the air on a cheerleading team. Being a super young mom and not very financially stable, I was not able to … [Read more...]

Refreshing Youthful Smoothie


I am loving my NutriBullet and creating healthy smoothies has become a snap. I love finding smoothie recipes online and finding fruit and vegetable combinations that I enjoy. This smoothie combo came inspired by the seedless watermelons that I found at HEB, my local grocery store. We all know watermelon is juicy and refreshing. Even though watermelon is mostly water and sugar, there are many hidden health benefits. Watermelon are sources of vitamin C and vitamin … [Read more...]
