Day 23-26....30 Day Photo Challenge

Day 23~favorite book
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!

Day 25~my day

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!
Day 26~something that means a lot to you
some of these are starting to feel a bit repetitive.....of course, my family means a lot to 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.

  1. I've read the "Red Tent" so many times. I love Anita Diamant. It's amazing. I love how she took one Bible passage and created an entire story around it. It's amazingly good. The strength of women is phenomenal. I recommend it to everyone too.



Thanks so much for stopping by!
