Vintage Market Days

Over the weekend the hubby and I enjoyed an antiques and crafts show. I never thought I’d say this, but the show was poppin! There were lines to get in the door, a live band, food trucks, and crazy amounts of people! Who knew it would be the hottest place in town? I have toContinue reading “Vintage Market Days”

Purple Heart Tomatoes

I’m pretty new to this whole gardening thing. Green, if you will. last year, like a lot of people, because of the pandemic, the hubby and I decided to start a garden. In fact, I have something embarrassing to admit… We thought our mint plant was tomatoes and vice versa 😂. We couldn’t understand whyContinue reading “Purple Heart Tomatoes”

Newest Additions

Please welcome the newest additions to my flower family! All bee and butterfly pollinator plants. I couldn’t help but be(e) drawn to the purple flowers in particular (although I did allow the hubby one choice 😉). To me it is important to find plants that are a source of food for bees. They help toContinue reading “Newest Additions”

Red Eared Slider

As I looked out my window this morning I saw a movement. I had to do a double take! Is that a turtle??? Ok so there is a pond across the street, and I’ve seen turtles there before, but never have I once witnessed one on this side of the road. I was both curiousContinue reading “Red Eared Slider”

We ended up visiting two places during the week, both inContinue reading “Breweries ( & Distilleries) Galore”

Michelin Style Food

The hubby and I enjoy binge watching Hells Kitchen and it has influenced us many times. From learning certain techniques to trying different meals. Recently we’ve made ratatouille and risotto. Well, the hubby is at it again! He’s decided he wants to up his cooking game, especially since he wants to impress the in-laws (Continue reading “Michelin Style Food”

Texan Wildflowers

Before I moved here, images of tumbleweed blowing in the streets and ranches with cows used to fill my head when I thought of Texas. While cow-filled ranches are certainly a common sight here, what I didn’t expect to see was greenery and lots of wildflowers. In fact, the state flower is a bluebonnet, whichContinue reading “Texan Wildflowers”

Planning a trip!

Is there anything more delicious than planning a trip right now? The hubby and I have been talking for a while about going somewhere. Anywhere. We’ve been married a year and have barely left our house. We didn’t even get to go on our honeymoon. We were supposed to go to Portugal for a beautifulContinue reading “Planning a trip!”

A Little Walk with My Little Love

If you come to my house on any given day, you might find a black and white cat sitting in the living room ( and whining) at the back door. This would be my fur baby, Max. Max has been an indoor kitty his whole life. Once we moved to Texas, he had the opportunityContinue reading “A Little Walk with My Little Love”
