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”

A Happy Walk

For a while, the hubby and I had been exploring new trails around the area every weekend, but over time we got a little lazy and just went back to our closest park ( which is super lovely). This past weekend we decided to try someplace new again. And we were rewarded! It was anContinue reading “A Happy Walk”

My First Scarf

I am Soo thrilled to show off my very first scarf! I recently took up knitting again after several unsuccessful attempts over the years. It’s a big ol’ heavy and thick scarf that is totally unnecessary for Texas 😂 but I love it all the same and will try to find some uses for it.Continue reading “My First Scarf”

Plants planted!

I am excited to share with you that our little seedlings have left the nest! Sam ( my husband) built an absolutely humongous wooden planter box. It has been glued, nailed, drilled, lined and stapled. There was some hard work that went in to it but it looks pretty awesome! We carried it out ofContinue reading “Plants planted!”

A Texas Winter Wonderful

It’s snowing! In Texas! Since I moved to Texas six years ago, it has only snowed one or two other times. The first time it snowed here, I thought, huh, interesting. But as I drove, I saw people pulling over in their cars and staring at the sky incredulously. I came in to school theContinue reading “A Texas Winter Wonderful”

Ah, Sunshine

I realize it’s getting colder and darker around the country, even here in Texas it’s started having it’s cool and rainy days. So how do you appreciate the sun when it’s so cold? In my house there are two windows in the bedroom that let in daytime sun just above a little two person sofa.Continue reading “Ah, Sunshine”

A Little Discovery

About half way through the summer we started getting tired of walking around our neighborhood and the same parks all the time. We enjoy getting outside and exercising now that we spend so much time inside the house, but boredom began setting in. So we decided that every weekend we would try to explore aContinue reading “A Little Discovery”
