Not For Sale

Four hundred twenty-five dollars. If handed $425 right now, what would you want to spend it on? A pair of jeans? If you have watched the news or been on Facebook of late, you will most likely know of the story I am referring to. If not check out this article. Or better yet, read the blog post from Mike Rowe, host of the television show “Dirty Jobs”. I had to laugh. As silly as it is to think of someone paying $425 for a pair of jeans that have…

March Favorites

Where has March gone? I couldn’t wait for March. Promises of baseball, good weather and free weekends to play with cows. For the most part, March did not let me down! Well Aggie baseball did, going 1-2, the first weekend of March in the Shriner Baseball Classic in Houston, but nonetheless, it was a great month and the Aggies shutting out lsu last night was a cherry on top. April is looking just as promising. Engagement pictures to be taken of my sister and her fiance! My cousin’s wedding! Fish Fry,…

Moo Cow Moo

Some days, you just need to look at cute pictures of cows to get you going. Something is in the air, my allergies are on overdrive and medicine is wearing off. Figured it was as good of a time as ever to share with y’all some pictures I took last week, with my new lens. These cows and calves sure look happy to be on a fresh pasture! And of course I had to make a stop up at Grandma and Grandpa’s to see what I could find there. Well hope…

The Goings: Filling My Days with the Four-leggeds

It sure has been a busy June. Already halfway through 2016. Unbelievable. But can’t complain too much about that. Halfway through just means I have had plenty of weekends so far in 2016 to have fun and toe the line with trouble! :) Figured it has been a hot minute since I shared pictures of cows with y’all. So today is the day, you’ll get to see lots of pictures. Disclaimer: not all pictures include four-legged mammals. Some contain no mammals at all. Also there may be a picture of…

Sunburnt in October

Occasionally weekends come around and I have no extensive plans. This is becoming less and less often, but when they do come around, I welcome them with open arms and try my damnedest to make the most of it! It was only a couple of weeks ago, I shared some pictures and happenings from the Commercial Heifer Validation. That was a fun day but a bit different from the usual working cow events. Like I summarized in that post and many prior, it doesn’t matter how many years I grow…

Things Tuesday: 07/14/2015

Knock, knock. Who’s there? The middle of July. Yep, July 15th is right around the corner, a couple of hours from now! I would say where has the time gone, but I know the answer: work, play, Aggie things, family, sleep. ONE My dear grandpa turned 82 yesterday!!! Even though I think almost daily about how much time has flown, it is accentuated when you look back on how much time has passed since various milestones. It feels like yesterday that all 100+ family and friends gathered at our house to celebrate…

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…

Came, Saw, Conquered

Just a headsup, we are only a few weeks away from being halfway through 2015. How is that even possible? Does anyone not feel like time keeps flying by faster and faster? Oh the days when summer vacation seemed to last an eternity. Now a whole month flies by and in a blink. In all though, May was one heck of a month. I accomplished a lot both professionally and personally. Life has been pretty much a blast. Like I’ve said countless times, I live an extremely blessed life but…

Twelve Things Tuesday: 05/12/2015

So two days down, three more to go! Last weekend went by way, way too fast so this week has been a drag thus far. But I am extremely happy to get this done and posted on the right day! Let’s get this started!! ONE TODAY, marks 3 years since I graduated from my beloved university! Seriously, how in the world is it possible to have time feel like it has flown by, yet at the same time, college feels like yesterday. There are so many things I dearly miss about…
