Hey friend!

i'm amy.

I’m a small-town Oklahoma girl living the big city life in Houston, Texas, with even BIGGER dreams. I was previously an elementary school teacher turned marriage and family therapist with a passion for helping families live their best lives. I’m known for keeping it real and maybe a little too blunt at times. I definitely live in the real world with real world problems and real world people. 

 I am a wife of twenty-one years, mama to three kids and four fur-babies. I’m in love, like embarrassingly in love, with my labradoodle Mollie and obsessed with peanut butter cups! I am a professional taco-eater, for real. Okay, I just really think I am, but not for real. Is there a competition for that? I'm a definite overachiever every day of the week, and have been known to bust out an awkward dance move.

Okay, sometimes this beats #1!
Ssshhh, don't tell the hubs

Mr. Bubble


The funkier, the quirkier, the better, I have shoes that I don't even have clothes to match.



My hubby and I have a really awesome patio where we love to spend evenings. Mornings aren't so bad either

 The sounds, the water, the feel of the sand. I can be found listening to ocean sounds via Alexa, every now & again.

The football life is the life for me. Love spending football days with my two favorite boys.

I haven't traveled near enough, but I love to explore new places and cultures.

There is not much better than a middle of the day nap! Yawn!



My Top Ten

things I'm crazy about

love at first sight for me, maybe! love at first sign of football tickets for him. yep!

I was 19, he was 27. I LIED ABOUT MY AGE; 22 just came out without a thought. Yep, great start! LOL!

It all started...

Imagine a man walks off the elevator where you work, has gorgeous green eyes, an olive suit, and a lovely smile. Your first thought is, "That is the man I'm going to marry!" Second thought, "You've completely lost your mind." 

That was how it started for me. For him, I was simply a cute girl with OU vs Texas tickets, and he wanted to go to the game. Note: I did NOT take him to the game. ;-)

8 years later we were married. 21 years later, with lots of ups and downs, we have 3 children and 4 doggies.
