Life with Music (During Christmas)

Seeing as I’m such a strict follower of the “Zero Christmas before Thanksgiving” I like to think I cherish the sounds of the season a little more! In fact, I plan out my After Turkey Christmas Music All The Time playlist weeks days in advance. It’s a sickness, really.

But honestly, there are a few songs that internally make me cringe.

Life in the Future

If you’ve been around here long enough, you know that I’m an Olympic nut.

Apparently, I’m able to predict the future as well.



I would like to think that I’m personally responsible for this.  You’re welcome.

Life on Thanksgiving

Imagine, if you will, a beautiful Texas fall day. The sky is clear. The air is warm. The Thanksgiving food is ready to be enjoyed.


The beer is, of course, cold. The outfit is adorable, if I do say so myself.

The only thing missing is a screeching smoke detector, right?

Oh and some firefighters, because who doesn’t have firefighters at Thanksgiving!


Oh, FYI. If your smoke and house alarms are connected, the alarm company will call the fire department. And if it happens to be a false alarm on a holiday, the firefighters will be angry. No question.

Life on the Weekend

Linking up for This Weekend I…

Ah Monday, we meet again!

Sometimes you need to stock up on everything at the same time.


Jumps on my bed.


Treats for the Bindles


Just couldn’t pass up BOGO S-Bucks.


Notice the sandals. Texas weather is weird sometimes.


86 degrees in November calls for some back porch sittin’.

Life Lessons: Spice Up Your Life (If you’re having a good time!)


During my two hour round trip commute I am afforded plenty of opportunities to ponder life and all it’s intricacies.

I’ve been feeling the need to shake things up lately and being the good 90’s girl that I am I turn to the fount of all knowledge. 

Sporty, Ginger, Posh, Scary, and Baby

Because who doesn’t, am I right?


Eat your heart out Posh!

That’s right, inspiration can hit while listening to 90’s solid gold!

Let’s dive a little deeper into the lyrical snack that is Spice Up Your Life.

When you're feelin' sad and low
We will take you where you gotta go
Smiling dancing everything is free
All you need is positivity

*If you’re feeling down, grab some of your friends, dance, smile, and have a good time!*

Bonus points if some adult beverages are consumed.

Colors of the world
Spice up your life
Every boy and every girl
Spice up your life
People of the world
Spice up your life, aahh

*Pretty self explanatory: Don’t discriminate and don’t leave your best guy friend at home.*

Slam it to the left
If you're havin' a good time
Shake it to the right
If you know that you feel fine
Chicas to the front Huh huh and go round

*When in doubt, slam it and shake it.*

Yellow man in timbucktoo
Color for both me and you
Kung Fu fighting dancing queen
Tribal spaceman and all that's in between

*Dress up and go crazy, obviously.*

Flamenco, lambada, but hip hop is harder
We moonwalk the foxtrot, then polka the salsa
Shake it shake it shake it haka
Shake it shake it shake it haka
Arriba ahaa

*Don’t limit your dance choices.*

Life on the Weekend

Ahh, I love a good weekend! Too bad I’m at work today. Do ya feel me?!

I honestly don’t know what I’m going to do when I move out of my family’s house. My life weekends will be pretty boring.


Coffee/shopping/selfies with the middle one. (She’s pretty great!)


Froyo is my love language.


Sunday Sunset


Texas and your snails.

Oh, PS, I’m thinking of starting a Youtube Channel. Would you watch my videos if I did?

Life Lately

Well, that was a long break!

I’ve always been obsessed with initials. After a friend or family member has a baby, mentally I’m putting together the kid’s monogram to see if it makes anything ridiculous. I have a cousin whose initials are IMP. No joke. My initials happen to be RTS. I always thought it was so cool that they’re almost in alphabetical order. (There is a point to this story, I promise!)

Life lately hasn’t been easy. The growing pains of a new school, the driving back and forth, adjusting to life in a new state, and all that goes with, well, life.

However, I don’t back down from a challenge. Because I Refuse To Sink. (See what I did there?)


I’ve been clinging to this truth while being anchored by the One who holds me.

We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. Hebrews 6:19

I refuse to let my circumstances dictate my behavior.

I refuse to be limited by my circumstances.

I refuse to be ruled by my attitude.

I Refuse to Sink.
