Practice Makes Perfect

  A few years ago, my oldest son decided he wanted to be the next great saxophone player.  Actually, what he really wanted was the end of the year reward trip that all of the band kids got to take to the awesome water park–but to get there…he needed an instrument.  So…with the incentive of a $25 admission ticket, our entire household was subjected to a beginning band student’s attempts […]

The Blonde Monster

  The original title of my blog was supposed to be The Happy Housewife Diaries.  Did you know that?  No.  Probably not.  I thought it was funny and quirky, and gave the illusion that I was somehow Donna Reed and June Cleaver all rolled into one.  But, sadly between two different publicists and my husband–that idea hit the cutting room floor, and voila! DallasLouis.com was born.  Now, I told you […]

Time Warp. . .

  Do you ever get the feeling that you have fallen through some sort of deep-space-dark-matter-worm-hole?  That’s where I have recently found myself.  Floating in Deep Space.  It was brought to my attention a few days ago that my website had been absorbed into Cyberspace.  Sad face. Check that.  Extreme sad face. I realize that I have been somewhat negligent in feeding my blog.  Somewhat negligent might be the understatement […]

Mother’s Day

Happy Late Mother’s Day to all the Mommas out there in Blogland! I hope yesterday was a true day of rest for y’all. My Mother’s Day started on Saturday night. My sweet husband took me out to one of THE BEST restaurants I have ever eaten at in my life. Considering that my dad is a chef, I do not throw statements like that around on a whim. We ate […]

A Busted Bird

I know that my Faithful Five have been sitting on pins and needles ALL DAY waiting for me to post about my near-air disastrous experience this past December in which the ever-so-polite Sky Goddess asked my mortified husband and hysterical self to deplane. It all started with my husband’s new job. He’s now gainfully employed in the Oil & Gas business. This type of business requires frequent trips out to […]

So, I Have This Friend….

So, I have this friend who is a professional blogger. In fact, she is so amazing that she blogs on TWO sites. She has three kids, a husband, a house, she speaks at conferences all over the country and has about a million other things to do, and yet she manages to keep up with BOTH blog sites. She also has perfect hair. I hate her. That’s not true. I […]

Round One

Well, I’ve lost an argument…technically, it wasn’t really an argument. It was more of a discussion with sarcasm, eye-rolling, metaphors (that went undetected) and one extremely forceful click of the disconnect button ending the Skype conversation. I felt sorry for my laptop. Truth be told, this discussion is not over. I merely conceded Round One. Round Two shall commence soon. Here’s the skinny: I got a phone call the other […]
