Tech Tots

When I was invited to the Microsoft store opening at La Cantera, I was excited to see what they’d be offering our city and I have yet to be dissapointed!

On top of offering a community theater with a 103″ touch screen to be used by the public (I took my sons CubScout pack there; more on that later!) and technology teaching classes, they have something called tech tots.


A free interactive class targeted at children aged 2-5, tech tots offers a hands on learning environment for your littlest ones. Click here for full details of the event, which will be held in store from 10-11 am.

I’ll be there with the 2 smallest of my small letting them explore the world of technology.


Hope to see you there! Be sure and say hi!

Getting insane….again

I’m starting the insanity workout. Again.


The first time I tried the program, I probably made it through about a month, skipping a day here and there.

I think a 60 day challenge of this kind just really intimidated me and I completely lost motivation, especially when the hubbs got lazy and wouldn’t do the workouts with me anymore.

I really need to be held accountable for working out because exercise is not my thing! I haven’t set foot in a gym in probably 6 years!

This time around, I’m re-focusing myself and making smaller goals. I’m taking it a week at a time.


Day 1 done! Sweaty and feeling beat up. That’s how I know I’ve done it right!

PLEASE help keep me in line! Leave motivational comments, check in to make sure I’m meeting my goals and hold me accountable! I’ll be posting weekly updates.

Day 1 measurements
Waist: 27.5″
Hips: 36″
Thigh: 21.5″

Waist: 25″ (pre baby #3 size)

Microsoft store preview

Fellow San Antonio bloggers and I got a sneak peek into the new Microsoft store at La Cantera today; a day before the official opening.


I’ll just say that I was pleasantly surprised! I don’t think I’ve ever been in a Microsoft store, so I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it was so much better than I could have imagined!

There are interactive tablet, cell phone and laptop displays on top of the Xbox 360 gaming stations that my minis will never leave when I take them to visit the store.




San Antonio is lucky to have Microsoft in our community! They partner with many different local charitable organizations and donate to and support them!

They even offer the use of their conference space, complete with a 103″ touch screen display screen, free of charge! I’m currently working with them to take my Cub Scout and his pack to use the space and educate the boys about technology and earn a new badge!

Attend the grand opening tomorrow morning starting at 10:30 A.M. to check it out for yourself!
