I read this book years ago and really fell in love with it. It is a wonderful read with intricate characters, most of whom are strong women. This book still sits on a shelf in my home and I have recommended to many people.
Day 24~ something you wish you could change
being so far apart from part of my family, my grandfather, aunts, uncles, cousins...all live in Alabama, a 12 hour drive from my house in Texas. I miss them so much.
|This was last July...we had a blast!|
My day so far would be a picture of my coffee and my 4 year old's uneaten cereal on the table. But tonight, my step mom and I are taking my daughter and a friend to the rodeo. For all of you who are NOT in Texas....Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo rocks!!! We go every year, thanks to my dad and step-mom and their spectacular tickets they give us each year. These are great seats...50 yard line and very close.
I am by no means a country girl....the only pair of boots I own are the ones I wear with skinny jeans....and they are by no means "cowgirl boots". But I love it when it is rodeo time! You will not see me slipping on a short denim skirt, boots and a tied button up shirt (thank God)...that is what 90% of the girls wear there....but you will see me with my t-shirt of choice, a comfy pair of jeans and probably my Chucks on heading out to watch the whole shebang. I like all of it....from the barrel racing to the bull riding and especially the concerts. I have been lucky enough to see some amazing performers in my years as a Texan. Garth Brooks, Reba, Brad Paisley, Black Eyed Peas, Maroon 5.....tonight is Miranda Lambert. Tomorrow, my hubby and T are heading to Zac Brown Band and on Sunday my little cowboy is going to his absolute favorite....Jason Aldean. G can sing Big, Green Tractor verbatim so I can't wait for that. I'll dig up a pic of the rodeo from last year or the year before now.....
|This is my niece and daughter headed out to Justin Bieber last year at the Rodeo. Good times!|
some of these are starting to feel a bit repetitive.....of course, my family means a lot to me....so let me think of something that hasn't been mentioned yet....
This is the view from my aunt and uncle's lake house on Compass Lake in Florida. I have so many memories there from when I was a kid and this past summer, we went as a family and created some more memories. We only stayed for the day. This summer I hope to go again and spend a few days. I would love for my kiddos to have the same love for the lake house as I do.
