Rising Stars Fell on Alabama Last Night

I wasn’t the only Austin belle ringing and rocking in Alabama last night. The red-hot Austin band, The Trishas, stopped in Mobile on their southeast tour and I couldn’t believe my luck to actually be in my Hometown#2 at the right time. This young group of four uber-talented chicks is all the talk of the [...]

Let Me Get Straight To The Punta

Words fail to capture how much fun we had on our girls trip to Punta Mita! Gorgeous weather, beautiful sandy beaches, hours on end drinking Mexican cervezas and colorful tropical drinks, delicious meals that started at sunset and lasted long into the night. And the laughing. My ribs are bruised we laughed so hard. This trip [...]

Santa Fe and The Faraway

Little Chick and I have just returned from a long weekend in Santa Fe celebrating Mother’s Day with my mother’s side of the family. We had four generations represented: my grandmother, my mom, my mom’s two sisters, my two Santa Fe cousins, my Colorado cousin and her two sons. We had several churches outside our [...]

Conspiracy to Cover Up

reflections of a man

When I first planned this girls trip to Mexico waaay back in January, I had grand plans to bikini bootcamp my way through the spring months and melt away in time for a tropical reveal.

It’s been a red-hot week here in Mobile, reading, speaking and selling copies of ‘Paddlefish’ at a whole host of book events. On Friday I had my first ever signing in a bookstore. I was at a fantastic independent bookshop called Page & Palette in Fairhope, Alabama. They are known for scheduling topnotch authors and [...]

What’s Old Is New Again

To be clear, I am not saying we are old (quelle horreur!) but I believe it is a safe claim to say that all the chicks on my recent girls’ trip are enjoying a sense of rejuvenation after five days together on the New River in Virginia.   Yall may remember the inaugural Chicks Trip [...]

Shut Your Key Lime Pie Hole

When I went to Belize in January on the Girls Trip we had homemade key lime pie that was so good it brought a tear to the eye. The only downside about peeling off to bonefish for two days was that I was missing out on the key lime pie back at the house. We [...]

Don’t Stop Beliezing

As you may recall I went to Belize last month with a group of college girlfriends to collectively celebrate our 40th birthdays. I have been dying to give you all a detailed fishing report of my two days chasing bonefish but life has me going a thousand directions. Mommy-mode, wife-mode, and of course…working on writing [...]

Let Them Eat Trout. Cake.

My parents hosted a post-wedding celebration for us a few days ago and instead of going with traditional holiday fare for dessert, my mom surprised us with this incredibly life-like trout cake. It was unbelievable.My dad measured it with a tape measure then challenged the Professor to guess how big the trout was, and I [...]
