Back to Homeschool 2013-14 : First Week Update

9568758942_5f16a1f579

I knew it was going to take a few days to warm up to the heavy load around here with my sophomores and these tiny, wild preschoolish toddlers that haven’t ever been school-tamed before. I was RIGHT. Day 1 was slow on the academic front. Day 2 was busy, but not much better. Day 3 […]

Eating My Way Through BlogHer Food Conference in Austin

5121018301_b92ac4ca46

Normally I’m the photographer at conferences. This time, I’ll be eating – and live-blogging – and mic wrangling – and snacking – and watching – and listening – and learning – and eating some more. This blog conference is going to be different… because it’s for FOOD bloggers. WARNING: I apologize to my twitter followers […]

Fed Up 2 Fit: Week 10 Update and 4 Things On My Diet

8543331614_440e7e2467

In the spirit of “keepin’ it real” here at Sprittibee’s blog… I will admit to not tackling the first 7 days of the 17 Day Diet at 100% commitment level. We have had people visit, dinners out, and distractions – which all lead to cave-ins. BUT. I have been good enough to make some really […]

I’ve been tired enough to take a nap today since 2PM. The only reason why I didn’t is because I had too much to get done. This week has been much the same… Monday we crammed homeschool in a condensed pile of assignments and tried to dig out of last weekend’s laundry pile. Tuesday we […]

We went to the Houston Downtown Aquarium last year as one of the add-on field trips during THSC’s Woodlands Homeschool Convention. I love a good field trip; especially if they make it educational. This one was fantastic, because there was something for everyone – the adults, the teens, and the toddlers. My three year old […]

Fed Up 2 Fit Update: Week 6

8460877062_8891be4f31

I seem to be stuck on my weight loss. Can’t get past that 7 pound mark. The scale is stuck on one number – and fluctuating a pound up, then a pound down – in a relentless circle. It doesn’t help that I have dined at La Madeleine’s… but oh, that mushroom cream sauce. Hey. […]

First Experience with Isis Mobile Wallet

I mentioned a week ago that I got a new phone – an android phone – from AT&T. They wanted to let a few bloggers try the wallet-free payment system called Isis that is being advertised all over town. Apparently Austin and Salt Lake City are the start-up cities, and we live relatively close to […]
