Top 5 Friday: Brownie Recipes

Top 5 Friday: Brownie Recipes

Other than ice cream, brownies have to be my next favorite thing to make. And making them at the same time, is usually the best idea ever. But really, is there anything better than a warm brownie with a scoop of soft vanilla ice cream right on top? Anyhow, I have been paging through recipes trying to decide what I am going to make for our Rihn family Easter celebration this weekend. It’s been very tempting to rush out to HEB and get three baskets full of ingredients to make them…

Blast From Seven Years Past

Blast From Seven Years Past

As I was checking in on this website, I happened to come across an old blog I used for a while in 2010. Had me laughing out of both entertainment and embarrassment. But one post had me reminiscing back to that time and place. Funny how even though almost seven years have passed, the message rings true. Therefore, I thought I would literally copy and paste that post from September 2010 and share it with y’all today. Hope y’all enjoy taking this adventure into the past with me for a…

Time Flies

Time Flies

Lordy, lordy. Where has the time flown to? Another baby sister of mine, and a cousin too, are a couple of months shy of setting off for Texas A&M! Am I ready for this? No. First off, how can it already be four years since I graduated from that beloved institution? Secondly, how can Maycee already be 18 and leaving home? Even with all of my disbelief at how quick the years have gone, I am more than a little excited for the journey the two of them are about…

A Weekend in Aggieland

A Weekend in Aggieland

What does 416 miles and 36 hours equal? A mighty quick weekend to my second homeland, College Station, Texas. Thanks to my Dad, I had the chance to take two of my sisters and a cousin up to Aggieland for a game day. As I got closer to College Station on Friday evening, it dawned on me how long it had been since my last visit. Maybe five months isn’t a long time to you, but for someone who lived up there for over five years, it has seemed like…

Things Tuesday: 09/01/2015

Tuesday, Wednesday, August, 2015, where have you gone? With so much going on, Things Tuesday will have to be two whole days late. But that’s okay because I have brought you a pretty darn good list. So let’s get things started. ONE This will make you laugh. I promise. TWO And if you appreciate the actual game of baseball (not just the entertainment!) this video will make you say, “Wow.” STRAIGHT STEAL OF HOME! Oh my, @ElvisandrusSS1: http://t.co/dLlz2o7mlV #StealAHome pic.twitter.com/qSZKALoHqq — MLB (@MLB) September 2, 2015 THREE After winning another…

25 for Twenty-five

25 for Twenty-five

In many ways, I am still a child at heart even though I have a full-time job, live on my own, buy my own groceries and so on like an adult. I find humor in the smallest of things and at enjoy the immaturity I can don when around my younger sisters. This past week, I had a birthday. Now I am now twenty-five, and I’m not sure what to think of it. A number doesn’t have to dictate your actions or opinions; however, with this being a milestone of sorts,…

Things Tuesday: 07/28/2015

It’s been a little while since I did a Things Tuesday post, but I’m back now and I have a few quality, or so I think, things to share with y’all! ONE It’s been a little while since I last shared anything Aggie-related. But this will make you smile and maybe even tear up, especially if you’re an Aggie! Tom “Ike” Morris, Class of 1933, is turning 105 years old on August 1, 2015. He is the oldest living Aggie. He graduated over 82 years ago. Let that sink in….

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: 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…

Twelve Things Tuesday: 05/19/2015

And just like that we are only 12 days away from June and the middle of 2015! ONE Aggie Baseball finished up its regular season, going 43-10! What a fantastic year. But now on to the hard part. Tomorrow they kick off the SEC Tournament, playing Alabama. The conference tournament will wrap up this Sunday, May 24th, hopefully with an Aggie SEC Tournament Championship! Gig’Em Aggies! TWO Just about all day on Sunday, I flipped back-and-forth between all of my ESPN channels trying to catch some good softball games. So on Monday…
