Good Evening TXK

Remember last summer when I wrote in this very magazine that Sonic milkshakes were the best part of my summers? Boy, have things changed! This summer I’m (unfortunately) trying to lose weight… What a joy. I’m not just doing it for appearance’s sake; health matters too. But I’d be straight lying if I said appearance had nothing to do with it. … I know for a fact that I am not the only one who has been in the water with their shirt on, whether that be at the pool, the lake, even the ocean!

Summer is here, and for a lot of us, lake days are what it is all about. Whether you are spending the weekend with family or with friends, summers at the lake make for some great memories, especially when you are speeding across the water being pulled behind a boat on a tube, a knee board, or skis. Tubing and knee boarding are both thrilling and can be physically demanding, but they require little skill. Skiing, however, requires balance and practice and can challenge your body with significant cardio and strength training.

The Outdoors Are Open

Ten things to do within a one-hour drive.

… • Visit three states at once. 1930 U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey stone marks the spot where Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana meet. The exact location, appropriately known as Three States, is in Cass County, Texas.The marker can be found on Texas Highway 77 and Louisiana State Highway 1.You can also visit two states at once at the newly renovated Photographer’s Island in downtown Texarkana, USA.

I remember exactly where I was in March, 2006, when the very first episode of Hannah Montana aired on Disney Channel. I was sitting in my Granny’s bedroom, laid out on her bed, anxiously awaiting the start of the show, to watch a then-unknown Miley Cyrus become a star right in front of the world’s eyes. Of course, I did not realize at the time just how massive an impact she (and Hannah Montana) would have. … For me, nostalgia is everything. I bathe in it almost daily—meaning probably too much.

Raising the Parenting White Flag

For the few of you that don’t know, I am a mom of three precious kiddos, ages nine, seven and three. As their schedules go, the two older kiddos have the same school breaks, but the baby (don’t tell her I called her that... she’s a big girl!) is on a different schedule. … We were only three quarters of the way through the first day of her spring break when I posted to my Instagram story that I had already ordered two parenting books. Vigorously waving the white flag in surrender, I searched:

Baseball is America’s favorite pastime. Generations of young athletes have grown up spending their summers sliding through the dirt and grass or enjoying a ballpark hotdog with family cheering on their favorite team. Dating back as far as the 1700s, baseball has endured through many economic endeavors and national hardships, including the Industrial Revolution and The Cold War, and it is still a favorite for players and fans around the country.

Imagine you just spent your VERY last dime on a totally-worth-it, scrumptious, mouth-watering honey butter chicken biscuit from Whataburger, and you don’t get paid for another three days. Every bill under the sun is due RIGHT NOW!

All But My Life

April 23 is World Book Day and while my goal is to always encourage you to read a book, I am taking this opportunity and a world holiday to say it a little louder for the people in the back. … Texarkana is a treasure trove of interesting people and one of my new friends suggested I read her grandmother’s memoir about surviving the Holocaust and falling in love with the soldier who liberated her. Your grandma did what? My mind was blown. I was in close proximity to someone whose grandmother had survived the Holocaust and gone on to write about it.

April is International Guitar Month which is something I never would have known had I never started playing guitar because it would not have interested me. How cool is it that there’s an entire month dedicated to an instrument? … The Guitar & Accessories Marketing Association (GAMA) and the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) founded International Guitar Day in 1987 to promote guitar sales around the world.

Would you believe bowling dates back to 5200 BC? The ancient Egyptians rolled stones at objects aiming to knock them over. Over time, other bowling variations emerged from the original ancient Egyptian game. Today, besides the mainstream version of bowling, two different forms of the game continue to be played, including lawn bowling and Bocce. Several historical figures that have enjoyed the sport are King Henry VIII and Martin Luther. Francis Drake is rumored to have been engrossed in a game at the arrival of the Spanish armada.
