January Favorites // 2018

January Favorites // 2018 - sheerheart.org

Is it ever too late to do a favorites post? I sure hope not, because even though we are already seven days into February, I’ve got a handful of January Favorites that are still worth sharing. The first month of the year was, for the most part, a blast. Full of family time, ranch time and lots of time with the cows. To my amazement, I haven’t accidentally wrote 2017 on any of my journal entries or work documents! How long does it normally take you to adjust to writing…

Hot Reads – What Am I Reading Now? / 2017 Recap

Hot Reads - 2017 Recap / What Am I Reading Now

Hello! Welcome to a new year, my friends. Per my new and old self, I figured the best kind of post to start the new year on the blog would be one of the Hot Reads variety! So much reading has been done since my last Hot Reads update. A bunch to get to, so I’ll cut to the chase. And then I’ll give y’all a sneak peek at what my 2018 Goodreads Reading Challenge looks like! FYI, this post may contain affiliate links, please see my Disclosures page for more information. Thank…

Thanksgiving Recipe Roundup 2017

So if you haven’t decided what you are making for Thanksgiving, maybe this will help you. And shoot, if you’re reading this years from now in the spring, these recipes still would be a yummy addition to your table! To get started, I do want to share with you three cookbooks I have been enjoying the heck out of…

Fall Reading Challenge 2017

Fall Reading Challenge 2017 - sheerheart.org

Fall reading challenge, I’m ready, are you? September 22nd means fall is officially here. Beings that summer is my favorite time of the year, fall doesn’t get me quite as excited as it does everyone else. All I have been hearing about this week is pumpkin spice latte, blah, blah, blah. I’m not a cool weather person, so the longer I have temps in the high 70s to low 90s the better. I’m assuming I’m in the minority on this one, but I digress. After enjoying my Summer Reading Challenge…

Whiskey Cake - Weekend Recap 9.18.2017 - sheerheart.org

When you have a hell of a weekend, a recap is in order. All summed up, our weekend went like this: our favorite restaurant, high school football, hard work, evening mass, slow dancing, brunch, naptime, chores, baking, sleep. Weekend Recap – 9.18.2017 Friday It’s 4:30 and I’m walking out of the office. Already I’m getting texts asking where I am at. Apparently, he’s hungry and ready to go get supper. Yeah we’re that couple eating dinner with all of the old folks at our favorite restaurant, Julianna’s. As soon as…

Not My Mother’s Chicken Salad

Not Your Mother's Chicken Salad - sheerheart.org

From leftovers to chicken salad. Today, I’m sharing one of my favorite ways to turn leftovers into a practical meal that doesn’t feel like leftovers. Holidays are great for fun, family and food. But sometimes you find yourself left when a heaping amount of leftovers. Labor day, yes it has almost been two weeks since, and yes, I have been MIA on the blog since, but we’ll discuss that later… Anyhow, on the Sunday of Labor day weekend, we had a cookout. Beef and chicken fajitas, rice, beans, guacamole, homemade…

August Favorites

August Favorites 2017 - sheerheart.org

Whew August was wonderful, and this post is about to be full of my August favorites! Being my birthday month, August is always one to look forward to, even though it marks the endish of summer. Not only did I have many favorite things, but I also had a blast making memories. Whether it was spending the weekends at the lake with family and friends, working and hauling cows from sunup to sundown, or hanging out with the family and “old peeps”, August brought me so much to be thankful…

Weekend Recap – 8.28.2017

Weekend Recap 8.28.2017 - sheerheart.org

It’s time for a little weekend recap action on the blog today. Hurricane Harvey has made its impact across Texas. However, it didn’t impact me quite as much as we thought/hoped for. Nonetheless, I’m sending up my prayers for all affected. As terrible as it has been to see the damage and pain caused, it has also been a beautiful thing to watch people helping others no matter who they are. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to see all of these good deeds and efforts publicized for weeks, months and years…

About Me 2.0 / 27 for Twenty-seven

About Me 2.0 / 27 for Twenty-seven - sheerheart.org

It has been way too long since I worked on my About Me page. Today I was reminded of a post I did two years ago called 25 for Twenty-five. It was such a fun way to share more about myself without just babbling on. Therefore, I found it fitting to update my About Me during my birthday week. So here goes a little Q&A session: 27 for Twenty-seven: About Me What is my favorite movie, song and book? Movie: Sabrina (1954) Song: Silver Wings by Merle Haggard Book: The…
