Currently


Watching – The snow falling outside my window.  Right now it is in the 20s, and by Tuesday it will be 75.  I love Texas.

Eating – Asparagus, quinoa, and egg whites with a touch of ketchup.  I am also drinking a green machine by NAKED.

Doing – typing this while 300 Rise of an Empire plays in the background.

Dreaming – Not a big dreamer.

Planning – Possible summer vacay at the beach.  Possibly applying to school, or maybe just an art class.

Pinning – This is probably my favorite board.

Reading – I am Half – Sick of Shadows by Alan Bradley.  It is a part of my 2015 reading challenge.

Listening – to James Taylor’s Greatest Hits Volume 1.  Perfect music for today.

What are you doing?

Whatever you are doing, I hope you have a great day!

 

Ice & Snow


Well, it wouldn’t be a normal February in Texas without a little sleet and ice.  So here I sit with my girls hoping that school is back on tomorrow so I can go to the gym and work some of this funk out.

I really wish the pizza man or Chinese restaurants were delivering today.

I would really like to cheat on my MS diet.

Instead I will look at this picture of a rustic pear tart I made a couple of weeks ago.

I would like to report that it was super good, and had everything in it I should avoid, minus the pears.

P.S.  It is supposed to snow here tonight.  I think I will have the husband pick me up Coke on the way home.

It Just Keeps Getting Better


I thought the makers of all the super hero movies outdid themselves when they made Thor into a movie.  Big, strong, lots of muscles.

Then they went and did this…..

Now they are bringing Aqua man to the big screen and there is just one thing to say.

Thank you!

Happy Friday!

My Reading List For 2015.


I have not read a book since November, and I did not even finish it.

Pathetic!

I love to read, and I let that love go to the wayside.

Then a friend from work posted this on her Facebook page.

Ummmmm, how cool is this?  I think my brain went into overdrive just thinking about what I was going to read.

I figure this list will give me something to talk about on the blog.

My choices, if I liked them, etc.

I do not plan to go in order, because I plan to avoid the book that is greater than 500 pages for as long as I can.

I have already started researching books that were published in 1976.

I am going to start with these three books.

016e4d9191edd793bf8b69826638ef964a82701072This is a book they made into a movie.  I have already read this book, but it spoke to me.

01cbb9ad3f371ec9ae4e8ad428c34a761ae061e4a2This is my one word title book.  I have made the executive decision that a compound word would suffice.

0176bc3acd93bd81ddb8b3322ddccc913bc20425cbThis is a book of short stories.

All of these books I had at home, and thought that was a good place to start.

What are you reading?

P.S.  I am thinking about creating a newsletter.  When I was young I wanted to be the fashion editor for Vogue.  It will be like a little mini magazine.  If you are interested, please fill out the contact form below!

Where To Start?

Lets face it folks.  I am no longer in my 20s.  I can no longer go on fast food binges, drink tons of soda, stay up all night, and not take care of my skin.

I am going to be 39.

That is a 3 and a 9 people.

This is the last year I will be in my thirties.

While my 30s have most certainly been better than my 20s, I really hope for some stellar days to come in my 40s.

With that being said, I do not necessarily want to look like I am 50 when I am 40.

I eat better than ever….CHECK!

I exercise….CHECK!

I work on controlling stress….CHECK!

I wash my face, moisturize, and all that stuff….NOPE!

If I actually took the time to take care of my skin, my eyes might not fold up when I smile. lol

For example, I have not washed my face since Tuesday night.

So it is time to start shopping for what I like to call old lady cream.

I wash my face with this.  I just started using this.  I sometimes will put this on at night.

The magazines tell me I need a night cream with retinol, and something for my eyes.

There is only 9 million products to choose from. That makes it so easy.

So my question is where to start?

Signed Seriously Sassy with wrinkles.

PS, I earned those wrinkles from being happy and laughing alot.  That does not mean I want them to pop out of my face.

That Time Yesterday When My Husband Was Too Lazy To Get Off The Couch


I have been looking for wall art for our living room.  I am thinking a cool picture of a moose, deer, or bison.  Something cool and manly.  Nothing to artsy.

I found a picture on Society 6 and I asked him to walk a few steps from the living room to the dining room.  My computer battery is kaput, so it has to stay plugged in to the wall.

Anywhoo….

I had to resort to doing the laziest thing ever.

I totally took a picture with my phone and texted it to him.

Next I will be texting him from bed when I need a glass of water.

Wait, I already do that.
