The Abilene Farmer’s Market

After living in Abilene since 2008 (give or take a year away), I finally visited the Abilene Farmer’s Market. I had always driven by the covered area with the big sign out front, but I had never been up and about early enough to catch it. For those who are interested, it’s on the corner … Continue reading

Bits of the Weekend, and Too Many Toss Pillows

Bits of the Weekend, and Too Many Toss Pillows

What a great weekend it’s been! It’s the beginning of spring break for a lot of folks (but not for me until Thursday), so there’s been some excitement in the air. I was disappointed at first because we had been planning to go rock climbing on Saturday, but my Weather Channel app was predicting thunderstorms … Continue reading

Resolutions Check-Up and Feminist Zumba

Resolutions Check-Up and Feminist Zumba

The title of this post may be a bit misleading. The Zumba class I attended was not specifically “feminist,” but I’ll get to that later. How have I been doing with keeping up with my new year’s resolutions, you ask? Well honey, 3 1/4 out of 5 ain’t bad. 1. Read Books – 1 point. … Continue reading

Hello 2013!

Hello 2013!

2012. What a year. Logan and I started the year living in my hometown and working for the family business. We had just flown back from Scotland a couple of months before, and we were still trying to get our feet under us. Those few months of peace and quiet were much needed. In February, … Continue reading

Halloween and My Cooking Skills

Halloween and My Cooking Skills

I wish I could start this post with a picture of my awesome Halloween costume. Unfortunately, that’s not going to happen because I don’t have one. Actually, I don’t think I’ve had one Logan was a cult leader and I was a nun (his virgin sacrifice)–in 2008. Here’s a picture of that. You can’t see … Continue reading

Daydreams

Daydreams

  Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about where I want to “end up” one day. Most of the time, I consider my profession: Maybe I’ll be an Old Testament and Hebrew professor, who spends time teaching, grading, making lessons plans, serving on committees, and researching for my next article or book review. I’ll say … Continue reading

Summer Lovin’

Summer Lovin’

There were some yummy Sunday dinners: The United Supermarkets Summer Game (I won five dollars by the way…NO BIG DEAL OR ANYTHING): Healthier eating… Chocolate eating… Playing with Miss Mona’s furry kitty belly (and trying to get her to stop chewing electrical cords): Bought a new couch (and finally got it delivered 2 1/2 months … Continue reading

Meet Me, the Job-Getter

Meet Me, the Job-Getter

As you may have inferred from my subtle and eloquent title, I GOT A JOB! And it’s actually one I’m pretty excited about! An hour or so after the interview, I got the phone call while at Schlotzsky’s. Which I am also proud of, because they make a good sandwich. I’ll be an admissions consultant/recruiter for … Continue reading

Living the Single Life

Living the Single Life

While Logan was away on his camping trip to Big Bend National Park with all of his boyfriends (Grant, Jon, Trevor, Bronson, Matt, Kyle… I don’t think I forgot any), I was living the single life of luxury. Observe: Now that’s what I call a good night. The only thing that could have made it … Continue reading
