Benjamin, Native Texan, speaks his mind and only a few more hours left for books

If you get the Carrots newsletter (you can sign up on the right hand side bar), you know that we’ve been on a long family trip to New Orleans and Texas for a friend’s wedding. We have had the most wonderful time enjoying friends and being together as a family. The kids are loving having Daddy off work.

In Waco, where we used to live, we’ve gone to the amazing Cameron Park Zoo which is beautiful and such a huge variety of animals. Benjamin particularly liked hanging out with the Komodo Dragon.


Lucy was more of a Orangutan kind of girl.


Then the kids took a two hour nap. Win!

We also took them to the children’s museum on our alma mater, Baylor’s campus and walked around the university.

We’ve been staying with sweet friends in one of Waco’s amazing Victorian houses.

And we’ve been checking out the new additions to the Waco scene since we moved away like the INCREDIBLE new coffee place, Dichotomy.


And the Waco Downtown Farmer’s Market:

Benjamin was born in Waco and  he has had so much fun that he is distraught at the idea of leaving his home state. “I don’t want to go back home. Waco is too great!” He’s been telling us.

It’s particularly great if you’re eating Sorghum Kettle Corn from the Farmer’s Market, right?

We’re heading home today, so we’ll see if our little Texan can transition back to life in Florida. But I wanted to remind you all that tomorrow (Monday, April 28th) is the last day the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle of ebooks (including ours!) is available and then it is gone gone gone

I know I’ve mentioned the bundle a lot in the past week. I don’t typically promote products on my blog other than the occasional giveaway for my readers, but I just hate for anyone to miss this deal! It’s an amazing library of books that will never be available again (especially not at 95% off!) and having checked out the books and purchased an ultimate homemaking bundle in the past, I really believe that it’s an incredible deal.

I’ve already heard back from readers who purchased thanking me for telling them about the bundle because they love it so much and even bought extra bundles to give as gifts for friends!

And don’t forget that if you purchase the bundle through my affiliate link, I’ll send you Daniel’s super secret recipes as a thank you gift (watch my vlog to find out how it works).

And you can also enter the giveaway for an iPad Mini that some of the other authors and I put together for our readers!


Thanks to everyone who has purchased a bundle through our link! Each purchase helps support our family and we really appreciate it. I’ve had fun emailing Daniel Super Secret Recipes thank you gift to many of you and if you haven’t received an email response from me, yet, it’s probably just because we are on the road and I’ll get to it first thing when we get home!

    I want to live somewhere cool. A place where the locals know what sorghum is. Then again, we have the nicest people in the universe so I kind of love that.

    I just want a Costco. But nice people > the warehouse shopping experience.

    Your hair. I want it. I mean, I don’t want to take it away from you, just to click command C and command P, you know what I’m saying?
    Also, your ability to wear bright lipstick and look good doing it. I think you really should do a hair and makeup post one of these days. You just always look adorable!

    Well, this post brought back memories! I am also a Baylor alum (BA ’00, JD ’04), and I haven’t been back in almost ten years. Sounds like there’s a lot to see, both on- and off-campus. I loved running in Cameron Park. 🙂 Thanks for the blast from the past!

    Whaat?! I got my JD at Baylor 2 years ago. Dichotomy was not there and I do not remember a farmer’s market! Looks like I should’ve stuck around longer!
