Yes, we’re ready. A HUGE thank you to my dad for buying us so many treats on Sunday.  New backpacks, (repeat after me, they will last 3 years), new shirts for the season, a new book, basketball, reading lights for the night time nerds, (I say that as a former flashlight reader), a monster truck… […]

Goose’s team lost tonight, the Saints, (actually his second favorite team) and he started crying.  Again.  And we’re smiling.  Again. I was talking with a friend whose son loves football as well and started crying several weeks ago when the Texans we’re playing to make it into the playoffs.  I have to admit that both […]

I could go on about how grateful I am for my faith, my family and food.  But let’s be real…it’s after 11.  There is one thing I’m happy about right now. We Won! I won’t rub it in, that’s being taken care of on Twitter as I type.  The joys of social media.  I need […]

From the second my children come home from the hospital, everyone knows they are Longhorns.  Baby Z was our first baby leaving the hospital in a pink Longhorn onesie. Baby Z arrived after football season ended for the Longhorns.  She was lucky to miss the disaster that was Longhorn football last year. It’s a new […]

Hahahahhahaha! Before football season started, I was reading Sports Illustrated and they made this huge deal about Nebraska posting ONE SECOND in the locker room. It was to remind them how close they came to beating Texas last year during the Big 12 championship game. That was their inspiration during the Spring. Guess they should […]

We took the boys to the UT game on Saturday. We had been planning this family event all summer. It would be the Baby Hulk’s first football game. Then Lance didn’t get tickets. I was so upset, but not so upset that I was willing to pay for these tickets. Not to be a total […]
