WHAT I TELL MY KIDS EVERY NIGHT.

By Jenna Winegeart / March 21, 2019 /

Growing up, the word sensitive & I became synonymous. I had sensitive feelings and sensitive skin. What a combo! Anyone else have to wear prescription sunscreen growing up that never absorbed into your body but made you look like Casper for the next eight hours? Other words were given to me, too, but sensitive stood…

DREAM VACATION

By Jenna Winegeart / March 19, 2019 /

If I could be a professional traveler, I’d do it in a heartbeat. The list of places I want to explore around the world is infinite, & even if I live to be 107, I don’t know that I can expect to visit them all. But maybe!

TODDLER TANTRUMS

By Jenna Winegeart / March 14, 2019 /

We’ve all been there, you guys. You gave him the wrong granola bar. You wouldn’t let her wear her swimsuit to school. He took her Chapstick. You said no to coloring with Mommy’s permanent markers. Obviously, these are all valid reasons for prostrating oneself on the floor & crying all the tears while simultaneously producing…

SOMEONE BROKE OUR WINDOW

By Jenna Winegeart / February 25, 2019 /

If you follow along on my Instagram stories, you know that several weeks ago, Blake & I woke up at 5:30 on a Saturday morning to the sound of glass shattering. I had taken NyQuil the night before, so I was completely out of it. I thought Blake had knocked a water glass off his…

WHEN TEXAS BRINGS THE RAINY & COLD.

By Jenna Winegeart / February 18, 2019 /

People up north must surely have a system. For starters, everyone owns a true winter coat because they’re guaranteed long-term cold weather (unlike us Texans who are all, “Well it’s 75 today so we dug out t-shirts for everyone, but the forecast is saying the high is 31 tomorrow so I guess we’ll just keep…

DO PEOPLE EVEN CELEBRATE VALENTINE’S DAY?

By Jenna Winegeart / February 11, 2019 /

In honor of Valentine’s Day this week, let’s talk about L-O-V-E. I feel like this holiday is a love/hate affair. Some people are all about it, especially now that Galentines parties are a real thing, while some see it as nothing but losing a hundred bucks to a dozen fancy flowers that die in 10…

SAVORING THESE MOMENTS.

By Jenna Winegeart / February 4, 2019 /

I wrote these posts about my kids on different days, but I keep going back to them individually to re-read because they’re all just in such sweet parts of their lives. So I thought I’d combine them here. People say the days go by slow, but to me, the days seem to be flying, especially…

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…

ADOPTION Q&A

By Jenna Winegeart / December 13, 2018 /

A couple of days ago, I had the awesome opportunity to talk to a group of high school senior girls about our adoption story & how we’ve chosen to raise our three kids. These girls are all planning to pursue child development either through nursing or education, so this was a way for them to…

THE RED CHEVY

By Jenna Winegeart / December 3, 2018 /

My first boyfriend & I broke up. I was fifteen, he was sixteen, & we dated for about six months. He drove an old red Chevy truck, & it didn’t have a middle console so I could sit right next to him. We never went out on dates, but he came to all of my…
