As Good As Advertised: Vaquero by Aaron Watson

As Good As Advertised: Vaquero by Aaron Watson

Let’s let the cat out of the bag right now, it’s tired of being stuck in this ole sack: Aaron Watson blew me away with this album. Last month we loaded up and made our way to the San Antonio Livestock Show and Rodeo for Xtreme Bulls and Aaron Watson’s performance. After a solid two hours of rodeo action, the tractors entered the arena preparing the dirt for the stage and additional seating to be set up. I couldn’t imagine the show being able to top Xtreme Bulls. There was…

I’ve Been Eating Well Lately

I’ve Been Eating Well Lately

In previous posts, I have spoken a lot about how fortunate I am to live in a family and a place where good food is not hard to find. In recent years, I have branched out and opened my palette up to new experiences. But sometimes the oldies will always remain the goodies. So I figured I would show off a little and toot my mother’s horn a bit, of course. Actually let’s start with that. Last weekend, all of my other sisters were one place or another, so I was…

Things Tuesday: 06/30/2015

Oh hey, June. Wait. Goodbye? How in the world do these months go by so fast. I’d understand it if I was jet-setting around the world every weekend, but unfortunately that is not the case. I guess splitting my time between work and play is catching up to me. Then again, maybe this is just a side-effect of growing up that I have to just learn to deal with. On to my little list of randomness on this Tuesday. You may have noticed that this is not a Twelve Things…

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…

Howdy to Another Monday

Howdy to Another Monday

Happy happy Monday! Looking like another beautiful Monday here in San Antonio. After such a gorgeous weekend, it was awfully hard to want to go to work this morning. Of course I’ll have to post later about my shenanigans this weekend, but that will have to wait for now. Because, right now is my Musical Monday feature! I have been working on trying to come up with a calendar for this blog so that I can stay focused and not go so long between posts. Last week my post was…

At Thirteen: I was Reading in Church and She Was #6 on the Charts

At Thirteen: I was Reading in Church and She Was #6 on the Charts

And to think I felt nervous standing up at the lectern in church reading to two hundred or so parishioners a couple of readings?!? Its marbles compared to what she accomplished at 13! “Who is she?” You may ask.  Well I am referring to the- Tanya Tucker, hailing from the great state of Texas. What an artist. At 13, she passed on the opportunity to record “The Happiest Girl in the Whole U.S.A.” in order to record “Delta Dawn.” I think this gamble worked out in her favor in the…

Our Dad, Our Everything

Our Dad, Our Everything

To say I love you is one hell of an understatement, Dad. But it’s one that works all of the same. To be fair, love can mean many things: It’s all of those dances I stole out at Quihi or all of the family weddings. It’s that tremendous example you set for your four daughters that inspires me daily to want to give more, learn more and be more. It’s the coutless hugs you have given away so freely to your girls even when we didn’t know we needed one….

Making Mends.. Sorry Dad

Making Mends.. Sorry Dad

Good morning Friday! You look so good. You really should come around quicker ever week, you know? But seriously. I am beyond excited that the week is over. My sister is coming to town and a great weekend is promised. Well, well, well. Back to making mends. It seems I have gravely upset my father. You see last Thursday when I posted my Top 7 Old Country Songs I thought long and hard on my picks. I tried to pick different songs so that I would have a great variety…
