Uncorked Texas: The New Kid On the Block

I love to blog, and hopefully by now that’s clear. I especially love hearing that my blogging has influenced others to start their own blogs. Case in point: BF! Now, he hasn’t admitted that he started his blog because of me, but I know I had to have inspired him 😉 Right…. right?!

It’s Raining, It’s Pouring

It’s not raining here quite yet, but the forecast predicts storms later this afternoon and into Sunday. I figured that since Texas weather is so darn unpredictable I should help persuade the rain to come. Unlike Winnie the Pooh, I want to see little black rain clouds hovering over my trees. I’ve compiled a list […]

My Favorite Reads: September Edition

It’s September’s edition of “My Favorite Reads”. I’m still in the process of reading Beneath the Marble Sky and I am loving it! It’s taken me a little while to get through it only because I haven’t had much time to read lately, not because it is bad. I’ll most likely suggest this book in […]

A Split-Second Decision

It was Labor Day and I decided that before my family came over for a little pool and food action I’d go get a quick manicure. I had $15 left on a gift card that I was itching to use up. (Have I mentioned that I’ve just been dying to spend money lately? I’m having one of […]

Labor Day Fun Facts

I haven’t written a ‘fun facts’ post in FOR-EV-ER (said in the slo-mo voice of the Sandlot kid). Today seems like a great day to pick it back up again 1) because it’s a holiday and 2) because it’s a holiday that I know nothing about other than I get a day off from work. […]

Teen Commandments

We had a topic on Great Day SA Wednesday about the ‘Teen Commandments”, ten rules to live by when raising or living with a teenager. Reading through the commandments made me reminisce over my teen years. Some of the commandments, I thought, made sense now having looked back. Others didn’t really apply to me. But […]

Eavesdropping: We All Do It

Don’t freak out, but I’m sitting in a hospital waiting room writing this post. I’m waiting on a family member who underwent minor surgery this morning. No big deal. The doctor already told me it went perfectly. Good stuff. While I’ve been waiting, families have come and gone, content with the news they’ve heard from […]

Explain Your Middle Name

This morning at breakfast my sister, brother-in-law (BIL) and BF got on the topic of middle names. Sister and BIL asked what BF’s middle name was. A conversation ensued which got me thinking.And of course when I think, I tend to want other’s think with me. So, I asked them why they think we give […]

“Slow Down” Saturdays

There is nothing better than sleeping in on a Saturday. Unfortunately, my “sleeping in” is waking up at 7 AM. It’s beats waking up at 6 AM on weekdays, though. I’m a routine gal and it definitely shows when the weekends roll around. I love weekend mornings because I actually have time to make myself […]

Happy Hump Day

It’s Wednesday and my energy is starting to wane. I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely in need of a pick-me-up.
