Mom’s Work is Never Done – Kids and their Birthdays

Having 3 kids, we’ve planned a few birthday parties. For some, we have gone all out and for a few it has just been a small dinner with close family.

My daughter’s birthday is on Christmas Eve so it’s always tricky to try and plan her party. Do we do it before Christmas or after Christmas? Do we invite all her classmates even though it’s so close to Christmas? One year she decided she wanted a luau themed party complete with swimming. That year we did a ‘half’ birthday. She had a party in June at a swimming pool. While that was a lot of fun, come December, she wanted another party!

I Really Need Some Outback!

I have been craving the Outback Steakhouse lately.  It is my favorite place to eat.  I actually used to work at a Outback.  I was a fry cook, I made salads and desserts, and was placed on grill once in awhile, and I helped out with dishes when they were getting stomped

Facebook – What You Can Learn

Facebook is the largest social network. I mean, is there really any others out there? And we all wonder what we did before it. Some of us update our status, some people pretend not to look at Facebook and won’t admit that they really do, all the time... stalking. And some us are actually using it as a tool to keep up to date with folks we wouldn’t otherwise have time to chat with on the phone as often as we’d like.

We will all admit we learn things about others. Sometimes, it's things we didn’t really want to know.

5 Things About Kenny Chesney That Might Surprise You

As our Kenny Chesney contest continues on Facebook – sign up for a chance to win a flight to Green Bay to meet Chesney and see him play on June 11 at Lambeau Field – we're running down some of the highlights of Chesney's prolific career. In his nearly two-decade run at the top of the country charts, Chesney's produced over 30 top 10 hits (not to mention his four Entertainer of the Year nods from the CMA), and his recent achievements are nothing to sneeze at, either – among them his current 'Goin' Coastal Tour' and the release of 'Kenny Chesney: Summer in 3-D.'

Despite all those successes, there are things even Chesney's fans don't know about the star - so we've put together this list of five things about the country star that would probably surprise you.

Kids Say (And Do) The Darnedest Things

As a mom, you love your kids unconditionally, but they sure can embarrass you sometimes! Just the other day, standing in line at the checkout at HEB, my Bowen, who is 2, pointed to a bearded man standing behind us and YELLED, “That man looks like a billy goat! That billy goat STINKS!”

Talk about wanting to run away! I was so embarrassed and couldn’t even turn and walk in the other direction because I had all my groceries laid out on the belt and was ready to check out. To add salt to the mortified wound, Bowen then asked to have a chocolate bunny at the checkout. I told him no and that too much candy would put holes in his teeth. He pointed to the checker and said, rather loudly, “She has holes in her teeth!” I couldn’t get out of there fast enough! To the man with the beard and the checker, I am so sorry that my 2 year old has not learned better manners!

Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner on the Cheap in Victoria

One day, three meals, and a 20 dollar bill

Breakfast:
I live 10 minutes from work. This typically means that on any given day I roll out of bed about 20 minutes before it’s time to be at work. My breakfast generally consists of a cup of coffee with a side of coffee. I’m just not a breakfast/morning person.

However, for the sake of journalism and for you, dear reader, I made the sacrifice of getting up a whole 15 minutes early.

To paraphrase that beer swilling, most interesting man guy, I don’t always eat breakfast but when I do, it’s a breakfast taco. With the goal of cheap *and* tasty in mind, I jumped in my car and headed for Taqueria El Rodeo.

A Bet, a BBQ, a Bunch of Bald Heads

A bet is a bet, right?

The Nasty Cookers BBQ Team entered a BBQ cook off at Colet Inn this past weekend. The cook off benefited LJ Chumchal, who is battling Hodgkins Lymphoma. The bet was that if the Nasty Cookers won, they would allow LJ to shave their heads.
