All opinions are mine alone. #BackToSchoolReady #CollectiveBias This school year I will have a kindergartner, a child starting 4th grade and a child starting middle school. Two of my girls will be in dance and I am not sure what to expect from my oldest child, but I am sure that middle school will be quite an adventure.

Pack the Perfect On the Go Lunch

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and The Coca-Cola Company. All opinions are mine alone. #tastehydration #CollectiveBias Over 10 years ago my husband left his office job and began a career that required driving most of the day.  When he started his new job I would always suggest to him that he should pack his lunch along with some snacks instead of going through fast food drive-thrus and spending unnecessary money. Having been married to my husband for over 18 years, I should have known that he would not take my advice and pack his own lunch, so a few years later, I began to pack his lunch for him. If you or your spouse is constantly on the go for work, I'd love to share with you how to Pack the Perfect On … [Read more...]

Cookie Fruit Cups

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #mixinmoments #CollectiveBias With one month of summer left at the House of Fauci's my girls are starting to get anxious and bored. One way that I entertain my girls is by getting them in the kitchen. I am a big believer in teaching kids of all ages kitchen skills and simple cooking techniques. Since their favorite treat to make in the kitchen are sweets I decided to teach them how to make Cookie Fruit Cups. Lately, I have seen a lot of amazing recipes for Cookie Cups and since they looked simple enough to make, I grabbed my girls and went to HEB to gather all of the ingredients. As I was walking down the Baking Aisle, I … [Read more...]

Flagstop Cafe in Boerne Texas

When we first moved to San Antonio it was like we were on a permanent vacation. There were so many amazing places to eat and we wanted to try them all. Since we lived in San Antonio, which in my opinion is the heart of the best Mexican food around, often times we'd eat at little Mexican food establishments and devour breakfast tacos and beans, eggs, and tortillas. One morning for breakfast, we decided to venture outside of San Antonio into Boerne, Texas. As we drove, we saw an Exxon gas station that had a cafe inside. In my opinion, these are normally the best places that serve breakfast so we decided to stop and check out the Flagstop Cafe in Boerne Texas, which my 9-year-old has renamed The Boerne Cafe. One thing that I love about … [Read more...]
