I need lessons on applying sunscreen

Hello everyone!!

Well I fell behind in the photo a day challenge and gave up. Surprise surprise!

Saturday, my friend Karen and I went swimming. It was good to have girl time. I mostly hang out with my guy friends, all of my girl friends are either married or they don’t live here… I had been needing girl time!


I put sunscreen on THREE times, Karen can back that up… I don’t know how this happened.


Really?!?! My poor pale skin.


A couple of months ago my Iphone broke and I wasn’t up for an upgrade, a friend let me borrow his until I could get a new one. I ended up getting the Samsung Galaxy S4. I.LOVE.IT!!!! I posted on Facebook asking if I should get the iphone 5 or the Galaxy. Almost everyone commented back saying Iphone. I am SO glad I didn’t listen to them! I think people are just afraid of change, something new. They are all on the iphone bandwagon and afraid to switch. I’m glad I switched to an android! The camera is SO much better on the galaxy, my pictures on the iphone were always really grainy and I hated that!


Still going strong on eating healthier. I’m down 7lbs. I haven’t had a coke since May 5th!! I’ve only had fast food maybe 2 or 3 times since then.
I did cheat the other day and got a Taco Villa burrito… I used to eat Taco Villa at least twice a week ( a lot of times it would be more!) so that’s pretty good!

Well that’s all I have for now. I will be taking a lot more pictures now that I have a better phone with a better camera!



Day 7: Bright


Day 8: Animal


Day 9: From Down Low

Saturday I went fishing again. It was a lot of fun. We caught several fish and then back to Zach’s house and he made a pizza that was really good!








I haven’t been working out at all….. That is going to change SOON! I’m down 6 lbs. I’m sure that is from not drinking cokes. It’s been over a month! I’m pretty proud of myself.

Texas Summer Nights


Day 5: Environment

Lastnight I went to Zach’s house. We decided to go to the lake by his house to go fishing. We didn’t catch anything but we (me, Zach & Kevin) had fun just sitting out there talking. We stayed past dark, people were posting all over Facebook about not being ready for the bad weather, being scared, parking cars at car washes and we kept saying “Do these people know something we don’t?” “Why are they freaking out? We never get storms” etc. Not 10 minutes after we got back to Zach’s the storm hit us. It was INSANE! It seriously looked like a hurricane outside. The trees looked like they were going to bend in half. It poured, hailed etc. I’m glad we left the park when we did!
My sister, Kayla, said their power was out for awhile. We lost power at Zach’s house but it came right back on.

While at Zach’s I was standing at the back door with it open, watching the storm. The wind slammed the door shut and it went right over my foot! OUCH! My big toe hurts so bad now, It hurts to wear shoes!

This is another picture I took while we were at the park




Day 4: After Dark

I am determined to stick with this photo challenge this month! So far so good.

If only I could say the same thing for the Shred….. I just can’t get motivated to get off my butt and do it. Although, I watched Extreme weight loss lastnight and that always gets me motivated but it was too late by the time I got done watching it. This girl lastnight started out weighing 314lbs (she was 400lbs at her heaviest but lost 100lbs on her own), at the end she weighed 155lbs! Wow! Talk about inspiring! I know I don’t have anywhere near that much to lose, I just want to lose 10-15 lbs and get in shape. If she can do it so can I! I’m thinking of joining a gym.
I’m still eating healthy. I made a porkchop and asparagus for dinner lastnight, I still haven’t had a coke…. although the other day I told my sister I wanted a Cherry Limeade and she brought me one from Sonic and it did not agree with me! No more of those for me! That’s just proof that I don’t need any of that in my body.

I’m currently reading


Karen Kingsbury’s The Chance.

I’m not too far into it yet but so far so good! I love her books! The thing with her books though is, she usually writes series. I don’t like series, I like stand alone books. This is the first stand alone book she has written in awhile so I’m excited to get further into it!


Saturday evening, Kayla, Sherilyn and I helped mom plant her garden. We planted 16 tomato plants (we are going to have a TON of tomatoes), okra, corn, squash, zucchini and cucumbers. Mom had already planted collard greens peppers a couple of weeks ago. We are going to have a great garden this year (if the storm lastnight didn’t mess it up). I’m excited, we will be getting fresh (FREE!) vegetables! I hate spending a lot of money on produce. Eating healthy sure is expensive!

I stole these pictures from my sister’s blog…. hope she doesn’t mind!










Who knew you could have so much fun planting a garden? When us girls get together we are always laughing and having fun no matter what we are doing.

Yesterday after lunch with the family, I went to Zach’s house and we went fishing. We didn’t have as good of luck as last time. Zach caught 1 fish and I didn’t catch anything, but hey, I remembered to wear sunscreen this time!

While we were there there were 3 boys that weren’t too far from us. I’m going to guess they were about 12-14years old. One of the boys was trying to be “cool” in front of his friends. Every other word out of his mouth was a cuss word. His mother must be so proud. I heard one of the boys say “hey watch your language” but that didn’t stop him. At one point we heard him say to his friend “You wouldn’t understand because you aren’t a redneck like me” HAHAHAHA. Zach and I just looked at each other and laughed.


I haven’t done the Shred since Thursday night. AUGH! I’m such a slacker. I WILL do it every day this week. I have to. I want to get in shape! You can’t get in shape just sitting on the couch and watching Dr. Phil! (I LOVE Dr. Phil!).

My goals for this week are :
1. Do the Shred everyday
2. Drink more water
3. Try to go to sleep at a decent time (that’s hard because I’m a night owl and when I go to bed early I lay there for HOURS!)
4. Take more pictures! This has nothing to do with getting healthy, I just haven’t taken very many pictures lately!

That’s it for now, I hope y’all have a great week!

Gone Fishin!

My good friend Zach has been telling me for a long time to get my fishing license. I finally did yesterday and we went fishing!! We had so much fun! We caught 8. There were these 2 guys that were fishing a little ways away from us and they didn’t catch any. At the very beginning Zach said “we are going to have a competition”… we totally beat them, they just didn’t know we were having a competition.









After we went fishing, we went to our friend Jared’s house for a cook out.



For some reason I had a brain lapse and didn’t think about putting sunscreen on…. I’m pasty and very white, why would I ever forget sunscreen???


This is a pasty white girls bestfriend!!


Very painful! I will not make that mistake again. I’m going to have to buy several bottles of suncreen, we will be out in the sun a lot this summer with fishing, swimming, going to the lake etc.

Bowling :)

Last Friday night the family went bowling for Kelbey’s Birthday party. I think we had more fun than the kids did!
We bowled regular the first game and then the second game we did “Funky Bowl”

My phone takes crap pictures and I think the pictures are out of order but you’ll get the idea 🙂

I’ve said this time and time again but, I LOVE my family 🙂













Sunday I babysat for my coworker’s small group at his church. I had 5 babies in my class. I had a teenager help me. I think I got my baby fix for a LONG time.

Lastnight, I babysat Jake (my coworkers son). We always have a lot of fun together, he loves “Miss Brynne” 🙂 Next to Jude, he’s my favorite little boy.
