Athletes & Dating

ImageBeing single, I’ve adapted a few good and/or bad “single girl habits” that I don’t really see myself changing anytime soon. But let’s say a professional athlete and I started talking. Do I go all Kim Kardashian on him or stick with my stubborn dating ways?

Throughout my dating tenure (I went there), I’ve never really been the one to initially pursue someone, call or text them first, or coordinate a date. Yes, I’m aware that that’s most likely the reason for my tenure, but I’m old school.

Not to sound cliché, but I believe in southern hospitality, serendipity, and God’s plan. I don’t feel the need to take desperate measures to be with someone; if it’s meant to be, it will be. I wish more girls had this mind set because it would make things a lot less complicated, especially with this guy.

I’m not oblivious. I am SURE he is texting at least 20 other girls while he’s texting me. That doesn’t bother me, that’s what dating is… kind of. I just know that those 20 other girls ARE going Kim Kardashian on him to get his attention and that’s not me. He should already have your attention and text you.

Is this when I start to refine my dating rules? Nah… Maybe I’ll just break a few. 😉




Sayonara 2011, Bring it on 2012!

Looking at 2011 in hindsight, it was a good year! Dallas Mavericks won their first ever championship, Texas Rangers got pretty damn close to winning the World Series, something is happening with the Dallas Stars, Charlie Sheen entertained most of us with his tigerblood and winning rants, planking gave people the excuse to lay horizontally on random things in random places, Occupy Dallas gave homeless people a place to live for a short amount of time, and Kim Kardashian taught us you can make a fortune on getting married AND divorced!

My year tops off all of that! I’ve never been one to make new year’s resolutions, but a little over a year ago I decided I was going to be completely selfish for the year. Some people need a week or even six months to be selfish; I needed the whole year. I wanted to focus solely on being a mom, my career goals, my finances, and doing what I wanted when I wanted to! It felt and still feels damn good, so I wanted to share some of my 2011 personal highlights with you!


My main squeeze turned 3.


Dallas sees snow, the pretty kind!



I experienced my first Spring Break trip with my best friends in Panama City Beach. Talk about an experience…




Country concerts are my life; I didn’t go to enough this year. This is Josh Abbott Band, Chad McBride and the Drifters (from my hometown. Shout out!), and Randy Rogers band. If you like country, you need to download some tracks from these bands. Well worth your dollar or two.



First trip to Austin with best friends leads to an unforgettable night on the famous 6th street. Austin is probably my new favorite city besides Dallas!



Sea World and Riverwalk in San Antonio.




I couldn’t resist putting a few pics of our nights out in Uptown Dallas. Our favorite Uptown spots include: Sfuzzi’s, Renfeild’s, Den Bar, Trophy room, Nick and Sam’s, Prime Bar, McKinney Avenue Tavern, and Coal Vines.

Unfortunately, I don’t have pictures of my career achievements; I had a very successful year all because I pushed myself and worked my butt off!

I hope you make the best of your 2012. Set goals for yourself, be you and be spontaneous, love who you love, speak up, have faith in the plan God has for you, and live YOUR life.
