Top 5 Friday: Audrey Hepburn

Top 5 Friday: Audrey Hepburn

Years and years ago, shoot getting close to at least 15 years, Sydney and I made the trip down to Grandma and Grandpa’s house to spend the night. A quarter-mile trip may not seem far, but I’m sure it felt far enough for my parents to get us kids out of the house for the night or if they were lucky, the weekend! Anyhow, we took our toothbrushes and a change of clothes and headed out. Once at their house, we put our things away in one of the bedrooms…

Most-Loved: January 2016

Most-Loved: January 2016

Did someone forget to tell January that it was supposed to feel like the longest month ever following the back-to-back holiday seasons? January sure did fly by. I’m not too sad to see it go though, and look forward to February being nice to me! After stewing over some of my favorite things from the month, I figured I’d share with you! To begin, of course we’ll start with the books I read in January, for my Reading Challenge 2016, and which were my favorites! 10 Lb. Penalty by Dick…

Twelve Things Tuesday: 06/16/2015

Twelve Things Tuesday: 06/16/2015

ONE 81 DAYS. 81 DAYS. 81 DAYS until Aggie football starts up again. I have plenty of things to enjoy and keep me busy this summer, but really and truly can’t wait for this coming season. TWO If you asked me which recipes I have made the most in my life, I’d have to say #1 vanilla ice cream and then #2 would have something related to breakfast, either egg bread (aka French toast), chorizo potato and egg tacos, or biscuits. Well this past Saturday, I went ahead and walked…

Twelve Things Tuesday: 04/14/2015

Halfway through April?!?! Holy smokes, what happened to the 1st QTR of 2015? Well if there is one thing that stays constant in my life, it’s that time always flies by, whether I’m having fun or not! But not to worry, only fun to be had with this new series. Twenty Things Tuesday will be a weekly series that lists things I’ve been loving, or just simply things that have been on my mind of late. So here we go: ONE: Tomorrow, April 15th, marks 4 years since I received my…

Movie Spree in Order

Movie Spree in Order

Many apologies! It has been since the middle of December since I last posted! Just can’t believe how the time flies. So much has been had over the past month. The good, the bad, and the interesting. But so happy that 2015 is here. A lot of things to be looking forward to in this upcoming year. A handful of resolutions on my mind that I will post shortly. Last year I had a pretty general list of resolutions and I feel like I kept up with most of them pretty…

My Dogs

My Dogs

For as long as I can remember I’ve had a dog in my life. It started way back when, I was less than four years old and we got our first dog, a dalmatian, named Chance after the dog in Homeward Bound. Yep I had combined my two favorite movies to create a pet perfect for me. Unfortunately Chance didn’t last very long out in the country living near a county road. He had been hit by a truck :( But not to worry, I would be granted with another…

I like my coffee black.

I like my coffee black.

My dad should feel proud today. I have officially weaned myself off of creamers and any additives to my coffee. Well at least at home. Thanks to HEB’s amazingly yummy and aromatic Pecan coffee. If you haven’t tried it, you must! After the weekend I have had, 4, yes four, cups of coffee were needed prior to leaving my apartment. What a wonderful weekend it was spending time with both family and friends. I made a long-overdue trip to College Station on Friday. And of course visited one of my…

Woke Up Dreaming of Cows?!?

Woke Up Dreaming of Cows?!?

Really! This is no exaggeration or lie. I woke up this morning, in the happiest of moods I must add, dreaming of cattle. Now if I could pick and choose what I dream about this would be near the top of my list. You see here of late, I have been having myself a string of nightmares. Strange, that they are. They were almost like episodes to a TV show, in which I was on a sniper team of all things. Never in my life would I ever think I…

**A Book to Read: Lonesome Gods**

**A Book to Read: Lonesome Gods**

There are some books you’ll buy/rent/borrow in your lifetime, that you just never want to finish. For me I want to know how it ends but I know I will feel so sorry to have the story be over with. These sorts of books I will never get rid of. It’s selfish, really. But I guess I am just nerdy that way. There are literally a handful of books that I have learned a lot from and enjoyed so very much I don’t want to ever part with them. The…
