@ the Moment: Start 2016

@ the Moment: Start 2016

January! Where have you gone? Before we know it, we’ll be doing the Christmas shopping and working on our 2017 resolutions! Okay, a bit of sarcasm and exaggeration there, but these days sure are flying by. This month has been busy, but the good kind of busy for the most part. Plenty of days and nights spent with family, several days of working cows and music! I’m going to share my latest and greatest playlist that has been streaming through my ear buds most of this month. It’s been far…

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…

@ 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…

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…

I think I am in Love….with a new band!

I think I am in Love….with a new band!

Ok in no way, shape, or form, would you call them a new band. But oh they are new to me! How ever did I live my life without knowing of them???? A pure shame my 23 years of life have been up until now. Yes overstatement of the day I am sure, but I’m being serious when I say I L-O-V-E this band. And this said band is………………Drum-roll, ladies and gents………………….. The Mavericks See I told you they weren’t really a new band, but humor me, please. This whole…

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…

Blue Ain’t the Word for the Way I Feel

Blue Ain’t the Word for the Way I Feel

Another weekend is in the books for 2013. We sure are getting awfully close to some important holidays, aren’t we? This post is for Grandpa… and well any other person out there who enjoys and appreciates good, honest music. I would say specifically country music but the artist I am featuring is known for some great crossover tunes. A long time ago, Grandpa told me that Ray Price was his favorite singer. Naturally since then, he’s been one of mine too. Such an honest voice. His songs are magic to…

Top 7 Old Country Songs**

Top 7 Old Country Songs**

** that will be sung at my family’s Christmas Christmas really is right around the corner! Scary, huh? This Monday I had a meeting about our Christmas charity event. Yes, Halloween is over and now it’s onto Christmas. It is seriously the first week of November! Let me enjoy the fall weather first before I think about snowmen, elves, Santa Claus, and nativities! But that got me thinking about how much I love getting together for Christmas with my family, well actually any holiday or reason in general! When the…
