2017 Reading List

The Aviator’s Wife Melanie Benjamin Goodreads: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Portia Bridgewood: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ I must admit this book was fantastic. I was hooked from page one. I took this book everywhere I went in hopes that I could get a few pages read in the spare moments of my day. The Aviator’s Wife is all about Charles Lindbergh’s…

2017 Goals: A New Year’s Resolution Story told 5 months late

I want to spend more time with Jesus. I have tried to turn off the T.V. and music more throughout my day. I think our society has become scared of silence and doesn’t spend enough time emotionally recharging. Part of my silent time is spent strengthening my relationship with Christ and part of it is…

The Adventures of an Ad Grad in KDG

Hey, all! It’s me. I’m back. (el oh el, how many times can I say this on the blog before I actually buckle down and post on a regular basis?) This time, readers, I have some pretty exciting news to share with you since we last chatted. I’ve made five blankets, graduated from college, said RIP to…

PSA

This message is brought to you by Portia Bridgewood. I need to ask a favor of you all during this December stretch of festivity. Why, you ask? It’s all for a good cause, I can promise you that! The other day, I was pondering my post-grad life over a cookie Mama Hays made for me….

Summer Was Helpful

As the summer comes to an end *cries enough tears to fill up a pool. Tears are not caused from lack of excitement for school starting, but because starting class means 9 months closer to becoming a grown-up and I’m not ready for that*, I spent some time reflecting on all I did this summer….

April Showers Bring May Dates.

Yeah, I bet you thought this was going to be a post about all the hot dates I’ll be going on in the month of May, didn’t you? HA. Don’t get your hopes up, people. These May dates are bigger and better than those hot dates (I bet my mom disagrees with this statement) and…

Letters from #NRFR

School starts tomorrow. C’mon. Could we not & say we did? I have still have things on my Christmas Break to-do list that haven’t been done yet! Like 5 seasons of “Friends” & pinning things I’ll never do & thinking about blogging & not actually doing it (lol) & have I mentioned I’ve only watched half of…

HEY HEY HEY HEY #16

College took over. Again. So sorry about that! Big things have happen here in MHK. For starters, I haven’t listened to the new T.Swift CD. Ha, take that. I’m not impressed by your repetitive teenage-girl lyrics you’re STILL writing at 24. Get your life together, girl. Sheesh. BREAKING: A.Hammack just paused out my T.Swift negativity to resume…

Junior Year

A few weeks ago, I started my junior year at the Happiest College on Earth. Wait, what? Junior year? While I was syllabus-ing (aka struggle-busing) my way through the first week of class, I finally realized what college professors and instructors are good for…Teaching humans with high school educations things! (Har de har har, I’ve got…

Today, while I was browsing through the “home decor” section of Pinterest, I came to a pretty fantastic realization. I want a house. Not just any house, though. I want a house you buy cheap and gut the entire inside. A house that would make HGTV jealous. Here’s where Pinterest comes in handy. What did…

Tryin’ hard now, gettin’ strong now…

Did you hear that? That’s the sound of 5 months whizzing past. Gulp. I did do some pretty cool things in the time I spent away from da blog. I took a ceramics class and wrote a few stories (not papers) and learned quite a few new facts about myself (like I’m a writer, not…

My Current Motto

Oh hey there, friends. Remember when I said I was making my big comeback? LOL @ LIFE. To keep me truckin’ through the chaos, I’ve decided to create a motto (and by create, of course I mean steal from Pinterest) that has gotten me through a couple of tight scheduling issues and through simple day-to-day…
