Mary Jo Peckham Park In Katy, TX Has Affordable Swim Lessons

I wanted to pass this along before it is too late.  Mary Jo Peckham Park in Katy, TX offers Red Cross swimming lessons for kids and everyone.  The slots fill up pretty quick.  Last year I had to physically drive over to the community center and sign up for the lessons.  Here

This is not the Peckham pool.  Just a generic pool.

My kids had a great time since it is an indoor pool.  Pretty much all the Houston parks have Red Cross swimming lessons but I live in Katy and that is what I know about.  More about the facility later.

Hurry and call before all the slots are gone.


Payless Halloween Shoes And My Fabulous 41 year old legs

Gwen Stefani Payless Shoes

Gwen Stefani Payless Shoes

Today, I bought some cheap summer canvas shoes for the kids and me at Payless.  My daughter pointed these out and told me to try them out.

Who would buy these shoes?  Where would you be going?

I am 5’7″ and I was feeling like a giant girl.  These are the type of shoes you wear in a music video for about 5 minutes with a Harajuku girl.  They would be cute as part of a Halloween costume but I have never had to wear any type of costume that matches that kind of shoe.

You should have seen the Giraffe flats.  They were so cute but I have nowhere to wear them plus they are not practical for cutting the yard and killing fire ants.
