Review: Influenster Posh VoxBox

Review: Influenster Posh VoxBox - sheerheart.org

Almost two months ago, a Posh VoxBox greeted me at my doorstep full of goods to test out and review. I get these on occasion through Influenster and have found some great products in the process. If you haven’t heard of Influenster you should take a few minutes to check it out. On almost a daily basis, I find myself giving my opinion of products and places, whether it be person-to-person or online somewhere. Being an online shopper, I have learned to rely on feedback from other buyers to help…

Top 5 Friday: Marty Robbins

Top 5 Friday: Marty Robbins curated by sheerheart.org

Marty Robbins. What a singer, comedian, and performer. Like I have said countless times before, I am a lover of old country music. Growing up Marty Robbins was constantly on, and lately that has only increased. He has one of my most favorite albums, Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs. Top to bottom, his music is entertaining, comforting and a joy to listen to. Oddly enough, I don’t find myself dancing to too many of his songs. They are more the type to sit around a fire and listen to together, if…

Beef Stir Fry – A Weeknight Dinner

Beef Stir Fry - Weeknight Dinners - sheerheart.org

Beef Stir Fry ended up on my menu a couple of weeks ago after lengthy discussion about our weeknight dinners. As many of you could relate to, I felt like I was in a rut when it came to dinnertime during the week. One can only take baked chicken and veggies for so long! After growing up surrounded by beef cattle, I have always worked it in to my menu more than perhaps the average girl in her 20s. Beef is tasty. And knowing where it came from makes it…

Out in West Texas

Out in West Texas - pictures and stories by sheerheart.org

Holy smokes, it has been almost two years since I took a trip to West Texas. If you are fond of breath-taking sunrises and sunsets, wide open spaces and limited internet access, add West Texas to your vacation list asap. While writing my Top 5 Friday: Western Novels post, I realized I hadn’t shared many of the pictures I took on my long weekend out in Alpine and Marfa. Who knows why I didn’t get back and immediately overload y’all with them. Nonetheless, I’m here now with a couple handfuls…

HAPPY AUGUST! One of my most favorite months out of the year, I wonder why ;) But before we get deep into August, here are my July favorites! This post may contain affiliate links, please see my Disclosures page for more information. Thank you for your support!

I blame that on the book I was reading at the time, but now I’m…

Book Review: A Gentleman in Moscow

Book Review: A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles - sheerheart.org

A Gentleman in Moscow has been downloaded through my Audible app for quite some time. Well before I posted my Summer Reading List. After finishing Since We Fell so quick, I wasn’t quite sure which to start on next. But having A Gentleman in Moscow handy, I started reading/listening to it June 21st and it took me exactly a month to get through. A Gentleman in Moscow By: Amor Towles   amortowles.com 480 pages, published September 6, 2016. Available on Amazon and at other stores, click here. Initially, I was intrigued by…

Time to Celebrate: National Ice Cream Month

Time to Celebrate: National Ice Cream Month - sheerheart.org

Hip-hip-hooray, it is National Ice Cream Month! As many of you may know, I not only love ice cream, but I love to make ice cream. Years ago for Christmas or my birthday, I can’t quite remember, I was gifted an ice cream maker. It was one that looked like a wooden bucket that required ice and rock salt to thorough chill the ice cream mixture inside the canister. Needless to say, I wore that sucker out in a year. Being in college, proves the perfect atmosphere for ice cream…

Baking Cookies Like a Pro

Baking Cookies Like a Pro - Tips from sheerheart.org

Baking cookies has never been one of my hobbies per say, that is until lately. Over the last several weeks I have really been busy baking in the kitchen. Although not unusual considering how many desserts he can go through, I have been stepping outside the ole comfort zone and trying my hand at some new recipes. Once I have done a bit more testing, I’ll reveal my thoughts on my new cookbooks I have been breaking in. So far, LOVING them! But during this time, I have come to…

Grandpa’s Girl

Grandpa's Girl - sheerheart.org

Someone once said, “A grandfather is someone with silver in his hair and gold in his heart.” Eighty-four years young, and my grandpa embodies that statement to a T. If you ever wonder how I got my affinity for old country music, paperback westerns and sawdust covered dance floors, look no further than Gramps. The love he shows to all around him is admirable. So much to look up to. A dancing machine. He can stay up way longer than me, or you I’d bet. No better way to spend an…

Lake Bound: Fun at Medina Lake

Lake Bound: Fun at Medina Lake - sheerheart.org

Before this time last year, I had gone to Medina Lake a whopping two times! Fast-forward a year and I wouldn’t be able to count as high as the times I’ve been since. Over this past year, I have come to love the lake in all its glory. Mornings at Medina Lake are by far my favorite. As I have mentioned before, sunrises are my proof that God exists. Both sunrises and sunsets at the lake are exceptional. Calm waters, fresh air, peace. On good weeks this time of year,…
