All opinions are mine alone. #YoursandMine #CollectiveBias My husband and I met online.  We talked for about a month before I decided he was probably not a psycho and agreed to meet him at a coffee shop.  About three months after we met face-to-face, we got married. We’ve been married for almost 12 years and it’s been a quite the rollercoaster ride.  We’ve definitely had more good moments than bad and I wouldn’t trade it for anything! Valentine’s Day is special to me because I married the least romantic guy on the planet.  He can handle sweet gestures for one day - but not every day.  So we put a little more emphasis on the sentimental holiday.  I enjoy making Valentine’s Day baskets for my husband but a few years ago I started a new tradition - a His + Hers Valentine’s Day Basket!  On February 13, I set a basket out on the table and on the 14th, we each fill the basket with … [Continue]

Restaurants in San Antonio | SensiblySara.com

My husband and I really enjoy dining out - and we are not very romantically inclined - so we tend to eat at the same few (chain) restaurants over and over again.  Coming up with this list of 10 delicious restaurants in San Antonio was a little more difficult than I'd imagined it would be so I asked my friends to weigh in. 10 Delicious Restaurants in San Antonio: Yaghi's Pizza Stone baked, authentic New York Style Pizza.  Reasonably priced and delicious! Guenther House Southern Living honors The Guenther House as one of the top 5 breakfast picks in Texas!  Only open for breakfast and lunch.

**Full Disclosure:  I received the Samsung Galaxy S5 for review purposes.  No other compensation was received.  All opinions are my own. What age is the 'right' age to give your child a phone? I wanted to hold off until James was at least 14 - but the necessity of him being able to reach my husband or I is what drove us to change our minds.  The fact that we don't have a house phone and that James will attend a device-friendly middle school were the biggies. While the Samsung Galaxy … [Continue]

Kids in the Kitchen: Making Burgers

Burgers made by Colin | SensiblySara.com

My husband is a hunter so we have a freezer full of deer meat.  When we made our meal list last weekend, he suggested burgers for MLK day.  He pulled out a package of deer burger meat. Monday evening the hubs started the grill and I asked James to shape the patties.  James flat out refused to shape the patties, but Colin piped up and said he'd do it. I didn't touch the meat at all - I only told Colin how to do what he needed to do. Colin did an AWESOME job! Note: I … [Continue]

10 Ways to Practice Gratitude

Gratitude | SensiblySara.com

I try to be positive, happy, thankful and grateful all the time but I don't always succeed.  In fact, I probably fail more often than I'd like to admit and I probably don't show my gratitude as often as I think I do. I don't want to say that being more grateful is my goal or resolution for the new year because I want to be more grateful for the rest of my life (not just 6 months or a year).  In an effort to be more mindful about gratitude, I came up with a list of 10 Ways to Practice … [Continue]
