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…

@ the Moment

@ the Moment

It’s been almost two months since I updated my @ the Moment playlist, so I figured while I had the time to kill this evening I ought to try to give you a few songs for you to listen to! Headed here in a little while to a free Adam Hood show at County Line BBQ. Can’t wait! Seven Year Drought — Jamie Lin Wilson Let’s start this playlist off with a song I’ve had stuck in my head ever since I bought the CD. Mr. Tambourine — Bob Dylan…

Twelve Things Tuesday: 06/09/2015

Happy, happy Tuesday! Last week I was convinced it would be a long week after coming off of a wonderfully productive weekend at home with the family. However, it felt like right after I posted, it was Friday before I knew it! Earlier today I posted a May Favorites post of sorts. Since everyone is doing them these days, I figured I would participate as well! But on to my weekly, for the most part, post: ONE Oh Aggies. Why do I look so tired today? Maybe it had something…

First off, I’m cheating, it’s Wednesday morning and I am posting this but hey, it’s all good. Happy Wednesday people! Whoa it’s June, folks! May pretty much disappeared faster than you could shake a leg. But it was a pretty darn good month. Sh!t got done in the month of May. And we closed out the month with the landscaping of my yard! Can’t wait for it to start growing! Ok now to the list: ONE Aggies win. AGGIES win. AGGIES WIN!!!!!!!! We’re headed to Super Regionals in Fort Worth next weekend. As…

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…

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Here in San Antonio, it’s not the prettiest of days to celebrate, but I’m sure people will find a way! But to the list: ONE: Since this will be the third week, that something A&M will not only be included on this list, but at the top, I guess it needs to be made into a tradition! But really, this deserves to be at the top because of how amazing and important it is to highlight. For the 39th year, the Corps of Cadets at Texas…

Twelve Things Tuesday: 04/21/2015

For the 2nd week in a row, something A&M will lead this list. Rightfully so, as Aggie Muster Is one of the Aggie traditions I am most proud of. A few times a year, whether it be in church, with my family or just a random moment, I am overwhelmed with emotions for one reason or another, for good and bad alike. But year after year, ever since the first Muster I ever attended in 2009, I can count on being overcome by a sense of pride, comradeship, sorrow, joy…

@ the Moment: Playlist Update

@ the Moment: Playlist Update

Back in February, I did my first musical-related post in quite sometime. I concluded that post with one of my Spotify playlists called “@ the Moment”. I keep this playlist towards the top of my list of playlists. More often than not, it’s where I throw new songs that I really have been loving, old songs that I hadn’t heard in a long time but need more of in my life and then random ones I stumble across while browsing through Spotify that I can’t imagine my day without! It’s…

Song Request Please

Song Request Please

Do you sometimes randomly start thinking about a song, then listen to it several times in a row? And later in day do you hear it on the radio? Oh my goodness, this has been happening to me so often! I can understand this happening with newer music, but the kinds of songs that usually pop in my head randomly are the country gold kind of oldies. Most recently, this was the case with “From a Jack to a King”. Yesterday, on my way to work the catchy little chorus started rolling off the…

A Voodoo Queen and Old Country Music

A Voodoo Queen and Old Country Music

This might be the most crazy, old country song I have ever heard. This is not my first time hearing this interesting tune, but I’m not lying or over-exaggerating when I say that it has come on at least four times this week. Ever since I happened to play it when I was looking for a Bobby Bare song, it has come up several times. But I guess that’s how it always happens. Down in Lou´siana where the black trees grow, lives a voodoo lady named Marie Laveau. She got…
