Perseid Meteor Shower… With Kids!

Posted by in Adventure

Last night I decided to brave the outdoors… but this time with KIDS! DUN DUN DAAAAAAA! Last year I went to Cooper Lake State Park with a few friends to watch the Perseid Meteor Shower. And it was a highlight of my year and really kickstarted my need to be more adventurous in my life. This time I thought I would share that passion with a few kids I taught last year in my woodworking class. It honestly started with me telling one of my friends and snowballed from there….read more

The Adventures of Coco and the Danger Noodle

Posted by in Hiking

Today, my friends and I decided to go on a hike. I was somewhat worried… because it would be Coco’s first hiking expedition. We met up around 4pm at Rockledge Park in Grapevine, Texas. It was a truly glorious day. The wind was high and the sky was bright blue. It was really spectacular. The park borders Grapevine Lake and happens to be 10 min away from where I live. Once my friends got there we started out. The trail has been eroded due to the amount of flooding we have…read more

Fun News

As some of you know I am on YouTube. I actually have two YouTube Channels. One I’ve had for 6 years and the other is 2 years old. My older channel was made while I was still married and its branding reflected it. My channel was called ILoveElhassan. And due to YouTube’s Url policy I couldn’t change it. Which was a huge bummer for a freshly divorced chica, because lets face it I no longer loved Elhassan. Thus the reason for starting a brand new channel. Flash forward two years…read more

Skin Issues

Posted by in Product Review

I have talked about my skin and scalp conditions over the years in a few of my YouTube Videos. And I know some people have similar issues and I thought a nice blog post about it might be a good idea. I used to feel such shame in even acknowledging the fact that I had a problem. I used to shampoo my hair multiple times a day, because I hated people thinking I was dirty. Little did I know that it made things worse. The shame I felt for something…read more

Earth Day Weekend

Posted by in Adventure, Tiny House

This past weekend I attended the Earth Day Event in Dallas. It is the largest Earth Day celebration in the nation. I covers over 1 million square feet. Inside and outside venues. It was insane. I loved it. Growing up we went to many Earth Day celebrations, but nothing like this. It was absolutely massive. This year it became the largest Earth Day initiative in the entire world. If you missed out, sadly you will have to wait another year. It is hard to explain the crowd that was there… think…read more

New Sidekick

Two years ago my Uncle Rob passed away suddenly. He was only in his sixties and he had recently got his life right where he wanted it. An exciting business and a new wife. His death left a grieving widow and so many loose ends. It was a crazy time. Flash forward 2 years later and his wife dies with even more loose ends and a stunned family. She never got over the death of my uncle and it makes me very sad. Some of the loose ends are their…read more

The Best Hiking Socks

Posted by in Clothing

My Uncle Mark owns a shop called Mark’s Outfitters in Hugesville, Pa. And over the years I have gotten some pretty amazing things. Any time I needed anything outdoorsy over the year I have picked it up here. My love of Birkenstocks, Red Wing, and Charhartt run in the blood apparently. And my Uncle Mark was the one that introduced me to SmartWool socks. I have been on the wool sock band wagon for years now because of them. I have had some pairs last through years and years of hard use. Sadly,…read more
