The Goings: Filling My Days with the Four-leggeds

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…

Oh How Beautiful

Oh How Beautiful

Well it should be no surprise that this South Texas girl doesn’t prefer temperatures below 60° F, let alone those in the 30s! However, even I must admit the winter season has the ability to create some of the most gorgeous sunrises. Monday morning, I was ready to get out of the door and off to work before 7. But I looking out the window above our kitchen sink I saw the beginnings of what looked like a decently pretty sunrise. As I started the car to warm it up,…

I Won’t Be a Liar

I Won’t Be a Liar

Dramatic? Yes. Click-bait? Yes, guilty as charged. But now that you are here, by the end of the year, I won’t be a liar. At the beginning of 2015, I had set myself up with the lofty goal to read 30 books before the end of the year. What was a I thinking/smoking/drinking? During the first few months I read quite a bit, but then somewhere between then and a little over a month ago I forgot all about reading and was too hooked on Spotify and podcasts to look…

Road Trip Reads

Road Trip Reads

A number of good things came about on my trip to the mountains this past weekend. One of those was being getting back into another book. Last month while on vacation with my family, I lost myself in the pages of a book called “Hill Country,” written by Janice Woods Windle. I found myself more interested than usual in a book of this type. I wasn’t sure if it was actual interest or due to reading at such a high elevation. Nonetheless, this historical fiction novel lured me in and…

What a Great July

What a Great July

August is the best month of the year. However, I am biased since it’s my “birthday month.” What’s better than feeling pretty close to 100% sure that it will be hot enough outside to drink a cold one on my birthday, a guarantee that sits just fine with me. But to be fair, July treated me well both personally and my blog too. So with that in mind, I thought I’d be kind enough to share with y’all some highlights. Seven posts were posted: One Fish, Two Fish   ** Highest…

One Fish, Two Fish

One Fish, Two Fish

One fish. Two fish. No red fish. But some blue-ish fish. Ha there you go, some Dr. Seuss for you today! In general, that’s how our fishing excursion last Friday went. First off, I knew I was with the right guy, when he said we weren’t going out at the crack of dawn. Even though, I usually consider myself a morning person, leaving the house before the sun starts coming up is crazy talk to me. Anyhow, after being out on the water for six hours or so, hard head…

Twelve Things Tuesday: 06/02/2015

Twelve Things Tuesday: 06/02/2015

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…

@ 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…

Kindergarten 101: Naptime & Reading Logs

Kindergarten 101: Naptime & Reading Logs

Crap! It’s the second to last day of July. Where the heck has my summer gone?!? While in college I remember realizing how fast semesters would fly by. Then later after I graduated and realized this only got worse. While in elementary, middle and high school, I wanted the time to fly by so fast. I wanted it to be summer again or I wanted to hurry up and be older. Now I realize that there is no slowing it down. However, yesterday afternoon I felt like a kindergartner again!…

Walking on the Fightin’ Side of Me

Walking on the Fightin’ Side of Me

This year I participated in a scholarship committee for an Aggie organization I am apart of here in San Antonio. Anyhow, this committee consists of 15 or so Aggies, classes spanning from 2012 (me :)) all the way back to class of 1958. That a 54 year spread. Pretty impressive at that. When we were conducting interviews a few weeks back, it was our job to ask questions to get to know these candidates a bit more beyond what grades, test scores and a résumé will tell you. These questions…
