The Fastest Year

Posted by on Apr 18, 2014 in Life & Adventures | 0 comments

It’s hard to believe that on April 15th Chris and I hit our first year of living in Texas. We haven’t lived in a home for a full year since 2011! Not only have we been here for a year but it’s been one of the fastest years of my life. I think this feeling has a lot to do with me being in school. Between the non-stop studying, taking a class over Christmas break, and some blogging, I just kinda woke up and it was a year later! What were you doing a year ago? Were you living in the same place? My sister Tara, keeps a really neat, daily journal; all she does is write one or two sentences on what she did for the day. She told me she was looking through her journal and saw, by coincidence, she ate at the same restaurant on the exact same day, a year apart.  She also said, she never would have realized it had she not been keeping her journal.

On another note… What are you up to this weekend? Today is Good Friday, so Chris and I have the day off of school and we are actually going to take the day off from studying (you just gasped, right). We are driving to a small town to look at 4 year college. I want to get my bachelors, and Chris wants to get his masters. Now, notice I say “want”, we still have another year to go, and as you all know, life happens and things change. Chris will get his bachelors in May of 2015, and I will continue to take classes at the community college. However, we will both have to put in our applications in the fall of 2014. Anyway we thought it would be fun to take a little drive and see the college. Last night before I went to bed, I thought to myself “I was never one of those kids who got to go look at colleges with their parents, and I thought I never would be. Now I am! well not with my parents, but who better to go with than the love of my life?!”

Our sweet friends, we’ve made while living in TX. They both are looking for a lovely lady, you know anyone?

Have a beautiful little weekend, and here are some fun things from around the web…

These would go with so many outfits, and add some height too!

 

Cute little romper.

 

Sweet little hearts.

 

Fun ways to wear a scarf in your hair.

Broken Glass

Take listen to this beautiful song called Broken Glass by Jack Savoretti. Also is it just me, or does every signal song on YouTube now have a commercial before hand?

Lyrics to Broken Glass by Jack Savoretti

Broken glass on the floor by my bed
Lying next to books
I’ve never even read
Wide awake, all the mess that I made
Everything I’ve taken
you’re the one who paid

Forget what I have done
Sometimes I’ve lost you
Sometimes I’ve won

Just let me do
Everything I can
‘Cause everything I do is for you

There’s a darkness to my shadow on the wall
Everytime I try to stand
That’s when I fall

There’s a fever burning deep in my bones
Even when I’m with you
I’m on my own

Forget what I have done
Sometimes I’ve lost you
Sometimes I’ve won

Just let me do
Everything I can
‘Cause everything I do is for you

Mmm, I do it all for you

You’re the lighthouse when I’m lost at sea
You’re my band-aid when I bleed
Am I hypnotizing you, like you’re hypnotizing me

Forget what I have done
Sometimes I’ve lost you
Sometimes I’ve won

Just let me do
Everything I can
‘Cause everything I do is for you

I do it all for you

Broken glass on the floor by my bed
Lying next to books
I’ve never even read

Wide awake, all the mess that I made
Everything I’ve taken
you’re the one who paid

It’s Converse Kind Of Day

Posted by on Apr 16, 2014 in Fashion & Popular Products | 0 comments

Today  felt like a Converse kind of day….

Chuck Taylor Washed Shore line from the canvas Slip on collection.

 

Converse All Star ’70, I would wear these with a pair of highrise shorts and a tucked in tank.

 

Who doesn’t want a pair of the Hi Chuck Taylor classics?! (Yes they spell it Hi) I’ve always wanted a red pair of these!

 

And if your looking for a low-profile tennis-shoe here is the Chuck Taylor Dainty.  This shoe has a little less material then the Converse All Star ’70.

Do It Anyway

Posted by on Apr 15, 2014 in Books Music & Movies | 4 comments

Anyway by Mother Teresa

People are often unreasonable, and self centered;
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are honest, people may cheat you;
Be honest anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.

If you find happiness, people may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, may be forgotten tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give your best anyway.

For you see, in the end, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

 

I love love these powerful words. No matter where you are in your life, I pray you find the strength and courage  to do it anyway!

<3

Don’t Whine By The Pool, Wine By The Pool

Posted by on Apr 14, 2014 in Good Ideas & How To's | 0 comments

Last Friday Chris and I found two hours to lay out by our pool. That two hours was wonderful, relaxing, and even came with a three minute show. There were some younger or should I say normal aged college students, drinking beer out of glass bottles. This happens to be a big “no-no”, not to mention there’s a very large and in charge sign, that reads “NO glass bottles by poolside, Thank you”. One of the gentlemen who works at our complex, nicely came out from the clubhouse (which opens up to the pool, you can see a pic of our pool here), with plastic cups in hand. He asked the people drinking out of glass bottles, if they would please pour the beer into the plastic cups. The way these college students/kids/brats were acting you would have thought the man had asked them to go and pick up dog poop. I felt so bad for the man. You just know one of the higher-ups told him “Hey Greg, you need to tell those people out there they can’t have glass bottles by the pool, and bring them some plastic cups too.” Anyway “Greg” I don’t know his name, was super nice, and the people he talked to whined and acted extremely put- out. So this little drama got me to thinking “what kind of poolside cups are there?” Here are a few I found…

How cool is this silicone wine glass!!!

 

Even though this wine glass may not look like it, it’s made from a shatter-resistant material!

 

I though this was pretty cool because, not only is it made out of plastic, it’s tip-over-proofed too! FYI this cup comes in lots of fun colors!

 

And Last but not least the plastic beer mug.
