Once upon a time there was a young girl who grew up on a farm in Brenham, Texas. This was a magical place and time for this young girl as this was the place where she learned to garden, care for animals, cook and bake for others, and learned the necessary skills of self-sufficiency. She applied her love and fondness of music to touring, performing and recording a few years with her sisters in a vocal harmony group. They even were able to sing on the Grand Ole Opry Gospel Hour in Tennessee! She later studied business and graduated from St. Edward’s University. She managed private Child Development Schools for twelve years and assisted in the opening of the University of Texas Child Development Center as well. She put her love of plants (all things flowering and green) into a Vice President’s position of a lovely interiorscape/ horticultural company for almost ten years. She left the life of plants to pursue her dream of Entrepreneurship! She started a Home Care and Concierges company, Back to Basics Home Care & Concierge LLC and helped the elderly in Williamson County Texas for ten years.
During these years she also married, had a child, had grandchildren and settled on a little farm in Liberty Hill, Texas. This is when she began to be lovingly called, Mimi and where she spends quite a few days on her front porch with her grandsons, five dogs, two cats, other farm animals and her puppet characters from Mimi’s Country Porch, where her dog, Leopard Girl, her sisters and Mimi teach you how wonderfully easy it is to get back to the basics of living a wholesome and simple life. Kids today are used to being handed everything to them instantly. On demand this. Netflix that. They will soon be labeled the Instant Generation, to their detriment. Mimi not only emphasizes patience and empowers children to learn and lead, but her ulterior goal is to impart traditional values such as kindness, respect, patriotism, family rituals, and general healthy living habits. There is lots of “getting back to the basics” with life activities and lessons!
Hello, I’m Lisa Sellers Roberts and I am Mimi! I would like to introduce you to Mimi’s Country Porch LLC and to the dog treat company that Mimi and Friends have created , Bonyappetit Pet Treats & More LLC.
My sisters and I were having a good time teaching children how to care for and be responsible for their pets via the Mimi’s Country Porch puppet shows. After listening to stories about how their family dogs and pets were having trouble with certain ingredients found in their dog/pet food. I decided to do my own research on the dog and cat food manufacturing of today. I even went as far to obtain a certification in Pet Food Nutrition and became a Pet Food Specialist through the “Dog Naturally” Magazine/company program. After four years of research and preparation, this 58 year old Mimi has truly created and started the company of her dreams. Come along on this healthy and productive journey with us, as our Leopard Girl would howl, “Woohoo!” and “Bonyappetit Y’all!”.
