Treat Mom to a Solo Staycay for Mother’s Day

Tuesday, April 12, 2022 2:00 PM by Lori Sirmen

Mom, Momma, Mother, Mommy, Mama, Mamacita, Mummy, Mum, Madre, Ma - Each and every one of them deserves a solo staycation! Seriously, there’s no “paid time off” for being a mom - especially after a year of parenting during a global pandemic - a year when Mum has not been just a parent, but a teacher, chef, housekeeper, coach, activity director, entertainer, referee, and so on. And some mamas have been juggling all those roles … in addition to working from home. That’s why this Mother’s Day you need to gift the moms in your life a “momcation” - otherwise known as a staycation sans sig other and kids. That’s right, dads, your credit card gets to go, but you don’t! You’ll get your day in June. 

Fluffy & Fido's Irving Staycation

Monday, January 31, 2022 9:00 AM by Lori Sirmen

My Bear is the absolute love of my life! My Bear is not really a bear, of course,  but actually, a dog that looks like a bear, a teddy bear to be exact, and he’s got me wrapped around his fluffy paw. He knows how to pull the puppy-dog eyes to tug at my heart when he sees me packing my suitcase, like these guys...

We don’t usually celebrate Valentine’s Day, because well…I’m just not into anything cheesy and lovey-dovey like that (ever since I was a teenager, true story!). So when I noticed that Valentine’s Day was like two weeks away from last weekend, I thought, hey, why not do a little staycation around my city of Las Colinas and have a little getaway with my little family. Any excuse to have a little getaway, right?

All for Golf & Golf for All in Irving

Friday, October 1, 2021 11:00 AM by Lori Sirmen

Golf is on the upswing and with good reason. Golf's inherent social distancing and outdoor setting make it a safer activity than many others. Plus, golf is truly a game that (almost) everyone can play. It is a sport for all ages and all levels of ability. It doesn’t matter if you are particularly tall or strong, all body types can succeed. Even a lack of flexibility or athleticism can be counteracted with savvy and skill around the greens.
