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…

Twelve Things Tuesday: 05/05/2015

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…

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…

Grilled Cheese, Wine & Rain

Grilled Cheese, Wine & Rain

Happy Belated National Sandwich Day! That’s right, yesterday was the big day for bread and whatever you may fill between it. Such a special day for the carb nation, I suppose! It’s a good thing I am such a strong supporter of everything sandwich, otherwise, I may be tempted to not blog at all about this occasion. But not to worry, sandwiches play such an important role in my life that I will gladly cover the big day. You may be surprised but yesterday morning was the first I had…

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…

Phone a Relative? ~ My Favorite Lifeline

Phone a Relative? ~ My Favorite Lifeline

Do you remember oh I don’t know, 8-10 years back, when Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? was one of the hottest shows around? I watched the show, played the board game and even had the PlayStation game! Nerd much? One of the most interesting aspects of the game, is the three available lifelines: phone a friend, ask the audience and 50/50. I use “ask the audience” quite frequently when I think about my daily routine. I mean isn’t that what a google search is after all? Especially if you…

It’s Tuesday, Let’s Dance!

It’s Tuesday, Let’s Dance!

Sometimes you just hear a song and not only gets stuck in your head for the next 17 days, but you also can’t stop shimmying to the beat everywhere you go! Ok maybe that’s just me being strange, which in no way do I deny, but it seriously becomes a “problem” for me. Not a bad problem, per say, but I’m sure I look pretty darn goofy while I’m working at my desk, snapping my fingers, tapping my feet and swaying back and forth. But let’s be real. This sort…

More than Worth It: Chocolate Ice Cream

More than Worth It: Chocolate Ice Cream

Am I not the best coworker in the world? Not only do I bring vanilla ice cream and even cookies and cream to work, I bring chocolate too! It’s been awhile since I made chocolate so I let my coworkers know they would be my guinea pigs before I decided to post this recipe or not. And after one day, the ice cream is about gone and their opinions of it was a resounding “yum”. Yes, this recipe is a tad more challenging than my Grandpa’s Vanilla Ice Cream, but…

Sometimes the radio is brilliant.

Sometimes the radio is brilliant.

You have got to love those mornings when you are driving down the road headed wherever you are headed, and the radio is dialed into your current mood. This morning was one of those glorious drives! First, a Tim McGraw classic, a blast from my childhood, came on. This is just one of those songs that gets your foot stompin’ and your head bobbin’. I remember having this poor CD on repeat in our old stereo. However, I must admit it probably took me a good five years to know…
