Hot Reads – Part 3 / What I am Reading

Hot Reads Part 3 / What I am Reading - sheerheart.org

Eighteen weeks ago I shared what I had read, was reading, and what I was wanting to read. Since then, many books have come and gone. Going to update you on my Goodreads Reading Challenge. If you are a lover of books, or just want to motivate yourself back into the reading habit, check out Goodreads.com and their Reading Challenges. It’s easy to set up and you pick your challenge. In 2015, I set my goal at 30 books; 2016 at 35 books; and 2017’s goal is 40 books. This…

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…

Birthday Fun / Turning Twenty-seven

Birthday Fun / Turning Twenty-seven - sheerheart.org

With the birthday fun had yesterday, I felt the urge to share some of my happiness. After all, I’m trying to milk my birthday week for all it’s got. Spent last weekend at the lake, had supper cooked for me on Monday evening, birthday celebrations at work and home yesterday. What more happiness will this week bring me?!? Goodness, the lake was absolutely beautiful this past weekend. With school almost back in session and football/volleyball started, their absence was noticeable. In just a couple of days, we’ll be back out there making…

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…
