HEALTHY YOU.

MORNING ROUTINE

By Jenna Winegeart / April 11, 2019 /

I’ve always considered myself a morning person– maybe it’s because I’ve never ever been able to stay up late so the morning was my only option. Even so, babies change everything. Now, I still love my mornings, but they look different. First of all, they are completely dependent on how well I prepare the night…

IF IT’S MEANT TO BE, YOU’LL DO THE WORK & MAKE IT HAPPEN.

By Jenna Winegeart / January 17, 2019 /

When I was little, I thought it would be cool to have a brother. My best friend, Shane, was a boy, & he had three brothers. My cousin, Sara, had three brothers. While I’m sure the whole boy thing got old to her really fast, I thought it was funny when they charged in her…

DREAMS & GOALS (become your days–becomes your life)

By Jenna Winegeart / January 7, 2019 /

I’ve mentioned the new year being a favorite time for me. Being an Enneagram 3, the achiever*, I thrive with society taking a collective time period to reflect & plan new goals for the fresh, wide open year. I take all the dreams that have been swirling around in my brain & put them down…

QUADS & GAZELLES.

By Jenna Winegeart / December 31, 2018 /

Family Christmas on my mom’s side wrapped in Arkansas yesterday. It’s an event that’s been part of my regularly scheduled Christmas programming every year since my arrival in 1988. If your family ever needs lessons on how to conduct a proper game of Texas Christmas — more commonly (& possibly offensively) known as Chinese Christmas,…

DEAR GIRL, IT’S CHRISTMASTIME

By Jenna Winegeart / December 24, 2018 /

Dear Girl, It’s Christmastime. How are you? Are you spending the next couple of days with people who love you, or is this year finding you feeling alone, even if you are with people? Did anybody ask what you wanted to find under the tree this year? Did you have fun shopping for people you’re…

FEMALES, MAN.

By Jenna Winegeart / December 17, 2018 /

In middle/high school, I adored my volleyball coach, Coach Cooper. She was short, about 5’1″, with short, blonde hair. On the court, she had high expectations & could be scary if she thought you weren’t meeting them. One time in ninth grade, she called a time out after I missed a ball, & she stomped…

MY BFF, THE ENNEAGRAM

By Jenna Winegeart / December 10, 2018 /

The Supper Club I’m part of has been meeting over dinner once a month for just over three years. There are four couples, & we take turns hosting. The hosting couple takes care of everything– the menu, the prepping, & the cleaning (We started using paper plates a few months ago). The other three couples…

MARSHMALLOW FLUFF AINT GOT NOTHING ON ME.

By Jenna Winegeart / November 8, 2018 /

Growing up, my family went to Luby’s a lot on Sundays after church. It was a guarantee we’d be in line with at least one group of ladies wearing giant hats & bright suits. I love a good buffet & seeing all the choices. First up were the salads, & I always went with a…

A+ Chameleon

By Jenna Winegeart / November 5, 2018 /

Growing up, I was such the chameleon. I could blend in at miraculous speed into any situation with any group of people. A people pleaser at my core, I wanted to belong more than anything. By belonging, I thought, I was enough. With my teachers who I respected more than life, I was an impeccable…

MY DAD, A THERAPIST, & THE LIE

By Jenna Winegeart / November 1, 2018 /

My dad is one of the most generous people I’ve ever known. And the thing is, I probably don’t know the half of it. But I do remember seeing him push a tv on a cart down my elementary school hallway & learning he was donating one to every classroom. I remember he’s the one…
