Conversations at the Kitchen Table: Episode 3 – Combining Holiday Traditions

Holidays – some of us get warm fuzzies when we think of the holidays…. some not so much. Join us as we talk about how traditions have changed, evolved, and the power of just saying ‘no’ to traditions that aren’t working.  Just a heads up – we’re talking about some aspects of the holidays that might ruin the magic of Christmas for the little elves in your life. 

At the table: Erin, Jennelle, Amanda G., Taylor, Rosalinda, Meghann, Maria, Danielle, and Christine





A fifth-generation San Antonionian - who happened to spend her formative years in Austin - Amanda loves the SAT from the confetti in her hair to the bluebonnets under her feet. Never one to miss a reason to host a party or decorate for a theme, Amanda revels in the 'mas Fiesta' attitude of the city. She's mom to Vivi (2012) aka #HurricaneVivi, Mac (2020) and wife to Francois, whom she met at Texas A&M (FTAC '05). She has a Masters in Early Childhood Education and a Doctorate in Making it Up As She Goes - which means she's a sometimes-fun-mom. You can find her on Instagram . She loves confetti, croissants, and a cold Ranch Water. Favorite Restaurant: Piatti's Favorite Landmark: Johnson Street footbridge in King William Favorite San Antonio Tradition: Fiesta Medals
