Blast From Seven Years Past

Granny and Mother

As I was checking in on this website, I happened to come across an old blog I used for a while in 2010. Had me laughing out of both entertainment and embarrassment. But one post had me reminiscing back to that time and place. Funny how even though almost seven years have passed, the message rings true. Therefore, I thought I would literally copy and paste that post from September 2010 and share it with y’all today. Hope y’all enjoy taking this adventure into the past with me for a…

The Goings: Filling My Days with the Four-leggeds

Weaning Calves June 2016 - Cows - sheerheart.org

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…

Graduation 2016: Maycee and Taylor

Lordy, lordy. Where has the time flown to? Another baby sister of mine, and a cousin too, are a couple of months shy of setting off for Texas A&M! Am I ready for this? No. First off, how can it already be four years since I graduated from that beloved institution? Secondly, how can Maycee already be 18 and leaving home? Even with all of my disbelief at how quick the years have gone, I am more than a little excited for the journey the two of them are about…

A Weekend in Aggieland

What does 416 miles and 36 hours equal? A mighty quick weekend to my second homeland, College Station, Texas. Thanks to my Dad, I had the chance to take two of my sisters and a cousin up to Aggieland for a game day. As I got closer to College Station on Friday evening, it dawned on me how long it had been since my last visit. Maybe five months isn’t a long time to you, but for someone who lived up there for over five years, it has seemed like…

Twelve Things Tuesday: 04/21/2015

SA Rough Riders

For the 2nd week in a row, something A&M will lead this list. Rightfully so, as Aggie Muster Is one of the Aggie traditions I am most proud of. A few times a year, whether it be in church, with my family or just a random moment, I am overwhelmed with emotions for one reason or another, for good and bad alike. But year after year, ever since the first Muster I ever attended in 2009, I can count on being overcome by a sense of pride, comradeship, sorrow, joy…

@ the Moment: Playlist Update

Playlist

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…

Still Not an Artist.

Young Aggie Paint Party

Newsflash: I am, still, not an artist. In middle school, I elected to take Art. I thought it would be fun. I thought I would come across a hidden talent/passion of mine and my world would forever be changed! Haha I was so optimistic. The truth is I pulled off a “B” in the class mostly thanks to participation grades. The End of the Year project could be anything using the techniques learned over the course of 36 weeks. OR you could choose to write a 10-pg paper over a period of…

Dear Mr. Johnson & Park,

First off, THANK YOU for coming to San Antonio! But really, ever since I left good ole College Station, there has been a void in my life. And that void would be live Texas Country music. Sure, there are some shows, but not near the amount as compared to College Station. It’s really almost a tragedy. A bit of an exaggeration, but live Texas Country, is usually an inexpensive form of entertainment that involves beer and a dance floor. If that’s not a perfect night out, I don’t know what…

Weekend Part 2: Beer and the Rain >>>

So after the eventful Saturday I had, how could Sunday and Monday top that?!? OH but never doubt or fear the power of a little countrified entertainment. Party in D’Hanis + rain, yeah that’s about all I need to make a weekend wonderful. If you have never heard of, let alone been to D’Hanis, you aren’t alone. It’s a tiny 1A town just west of Hondo on Highway 90. Even though it’s small and there really aren’t many establishments in town, I have met more wonderful people from that tiny…

I like my coffee black.

My dad should feel proud today. I have officially weaned myself off of creamers and any additives to my coffee. Well at least at home. Thanks to HEB’s amazingly yummy and aromatic Pecan coffee. If you haven’t tried it, you must! After the weekend I have had, 4, yes four, cups of coffee were needed prior to leaving my apartment. What a wonderful weekend it was spending time with both family and friends. I made a long-overdue trip to College Station on Friday. And of course visited one of my…
