Welcome to the Queen in Between blog!  I am just a girl from Texas with a passion for making a positive influence. While I'm lucky enough to be a wife and mom to four amazing kids, I also work outside the home in higher education as a Financial Analyst.  I enjoy the challenge of designing my life with style while focusing on feeling more blessed and less stressed.

Now, let me introduce you to the family behind the blog! 

I hooked up with this hunk (can you say dimples for days) when I was "in between" my first marriage and figuring out what direction I wanted my life to turn.  I am his dream girl and that works for me! {interested in more read How We Met & Got Engaged here} He loves our children, mine as much as ours, and I could not have asked for a better dad and stepdad for my babies. Our marriage is not perfect but at the end of every day I know there is no one else I'd rather be rocking on the front porch with when I'm old!

The Bigs

My first born is 26...that's right 26!  She is a rule following, hard working, Fightin' Texas Aggie Class of 2013 graduating, beautiful inside and out young woman. How I'm old enough to have a daughter that is already out on her own I do not know!  Jordan pretty much showed up just in time to save my life when I was 21 and I am so blessed to be her mom.
My 2nd born at 23 has probably given me the biggest run for my money.  He is funny, and sarcastic and has the biggest heart....but also just a tad hard headed. Riley played baseball for Texas Christian University where he pitched for 3 seasons.  As if that wasn't exciting enough he was drafted 79th overall by the Houston Astros in June 2015{read about his journey here}.  

The Littles 

This not so little man is 14 and growing oh so quickly.   He is funny and smart and has the sweetest smile.  I love his hugs and his easy going personality. Dillon loves to hunt and fish and play baseball, basketball and football....but would be equally satisfied to lay on the couch and watch TV all day.
And last, but certainly not least, is our little firecracker, Carly Jo.  She is spunky and witty and she loves me...oh how much she still loves me!!  At 11 years old she truly sucks every ounce out of life every day.  She is compassionate and cares so much for her family and friends.  She definitely rounds out our little family perfectly. 

These are my peeps and I just don't know what I'd do without them!  They have all made me who I am today and I feel so blessed they are mine!


  1. What a beautiful family you have! You are truly blessed. I read your bio and thought; oh we share the same problem, I'm way too honest. And yes, I think I scare my relatives!

    1. Thank you so much! I definitely feel like they are more than I ever deserve.
