31summerblog

Well.. I know that no one comments on my posts so there really isn't any point for me to put a picture up and ask ya'll to caption it is there ? lol. I don't really get comments even on instagram, even though I generally do get tons of likes or well by my standard tons would be 5 so yeah :) I actually found this really nifty hashtag thing for instagram (an article) and the gal didn't have ANY followers she just used various tags and she got tons of followers and likes on her pics in a weeks time! I wish she had a printable version or something.. I am going to have to print that page out as a reference and use it in the future. I know I have got behind not only with these prompts but with my instagram challenge for this month too - granted it had a few repeats! I hope to get it all caught up though :) When I start using it I will let ya'll know if it works for me with followers/likes and maybe even comments- i know comments slack off even on blog posts anymore- which is fine because … [Read more...]

31 days of summer day # 16 Green Thumb #verifiedmomBCN

31summerblog

I honestly do NOT know if I personally have a green thumb or not! I haven't really ever had so much as a house plant that was my own! I have pretty much always had a cat since I was married so I don't like keeping them around , especially with sam because any time that David even gets me a flower he tries to eat them, and we have to keep them in the bathroom with the door shut! As far as gardening in general we have always had an apartment with no where to really do that sort of thing. Even though at the back of the apartments here there is a community garden - or there was last year with greenhouses and everything- but there is never any information that goes out about using it so I haven't bothered even though I am interested! You may remember the post I did for Fresh Preserving store a few weeks back - Gardening is a big thing for most of my family because obviously back in "the day" of you didn't grow your own and preserve it you didn't likely have the option to run out to … [Read more...]

Short Rambles from the Short Girl

DRlogofor AR

Hey everyone! it must be thursday because I have a headache AND they are mowing/weed eating outside and it doesn't help lol. It seems like this is my thursday tradition. I had planned to go over to moms today but since David had something he needed to do this evening I am going to go tomorrow I suppose. I had hoped for an early morning and what not but.. no dice! It isn't a BAD headache and if they would get off the sidwalk directly under my window/the breezeway with the leaf blower it would be great! I think they have been at it since like 8 or so it is nearly 11! I want to catch up on my posts for the 31 days of summer- Days 13/14 are likely going to be a combined freebie post- I know 13 is def a freebie and I honestly don't feel like hunting pics down for 14 but we will see. I need to do pics for my instagram challenge too. I knew about half way through i'd loose steam..but a few of them are repeat topics so thats kinda meh too! I need to seriously perk it up and get a few … [Read more...]

zonked but powering through!

DRlogofor AR

  Phew. I AM ZONKED.. I think I am the equivelent of tired that I was after going to carowinds 3 days in a row!  I'm pushing through though- thank you coffee! Honestly my girly time is killing me big time this go around plus I stayed up late several nights on the weekend and yeah.. its catching up! last night I was ready to go well before David got home at 6- and he sat here for an hour and a half before we ever went to go eat and get a couple things at the store. I was like um.. seriously? because if I hadn't been ready he would have been more than ready to go lol. That is the way it always goes- he wasn't even doing anything that was important just playing that stupid war game he plays- which I could write you a whole rant on that but I won't! Anyways I had hoped we could even maybe go eat like the pizza buffet or even somewhere over in H-vile because I need to take something back to the store over there that has a hole in it- but by that time there wasn't really any … [Read more...]

31 Days of Summer Day 15- Summer Music #verifiedmomBCN

31summerblog

I don't think my music mood really changes with the seasons- but then again last year my end of the year spotify thing where it does the year kinda broke it down by seasons-so I don't know lol. I think that it was because it had to do with when certain cd's had came out and that was what I was listening to and why! I am a very picky person about music in general.. I mean I like a WIDE variety but I don't really leave any wiggle room for new stuff at all. I think I might be the MOST picky when it comes to country. I like OLD country like Keith Whitley and stuff from the 90's and early 2000's but then- I start narrowing it down to like Rascal Flatts, Eric Church, Jason Aldean and .. yeah.. it kinda is limited I cannot name anyone NEWER that I like. David and I were out eating and they were playing country radio a couple weeks back and I was sitting there like WHAT IS THIS CRAP? lol I think I am getting old. Pretty much the only thing I have been listening to lately is Wake up The … [Read more...]

Evening Rambles.. Why not?

DRlogofor AR

Hey Everyone I am doing a second ramblings post in one day -- watch out! I don't really know why I just felt the need to sit here and write a little more. I did get up till yesterdays blog prompt done- and yesterday will end up being a freebie day for me- it was a pic post of what i did yesterday and I honestly didn't do anything yesterday worth taking a pic of lol. Todays prompt involves sunrises and sunsets and I will scare up some of my pics and put them up but this will all likely be late tonight or tomorrow :) I really don't have any oomph for today! I know that whenever David gets home we will need to find something to do for dinner/scoot off to walmart for a few things. Don't get me wrong I need like an epic grocery store trip but I am going to have to make due a few more days until I can get to Aldi, which will likely be the weekend. I don't have a debit card for where we switched banks and really the only way to do that would also be on the weekend (saturday ) and I … [Read more...]
