Dear Isaac, Taylor, and Zac Hanson: Thank you!

Dear Isaac, Taylor and Zac (aka Hanson) – I am writing this letter to say thank you!
On October 2, 2007, I went to your concert at the House of Blues in Dallas. I was meeting some friends who drove in from College Station to see you on The Walk Tour. I danced to your music and sang along to the songs I knew. Read More! […]

Hipster Ariel costume

Geeky Halloween: Hipster Ariel

You know I love a geeky Halloween costume! This Halloween I spent the day dressed as Ariel the Little Mermaid, and some of the day as The Little Mermaid’s alternately-imagined persona, Hipster Ariel.

My Oak Forest Neighborhood Favorites

We are in the process of buying our first home and will be moving to northeast Houston next month! We’re BEYOND excited, but it will be a big change. Our new neighborhood is essentially the other side of the world from our current digs in Oak Forest, in northwest Houston just outside the loop from the Heights. We have lived Heights-adjacent for the past 4 1/2 years, and there are lots of things I will miss. Read More! […]

What would you do if you were not afraid? Lean In

Highly Recommend: “Lean In” by Sheryl Sandberg

Over the last few months I have been slowly but surely reading the book “Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead” by Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook.

The book is all about the reality women face in the workplace – not only the challenges handed to us by society, but the things we are doing to ourselves to make our own lives harder. This includes not sitting at the table, undercutting our own self confidence, and placing unfair expectations on ourselves in the workplace and at home. Read More! […]
