Happy Friday, y’all! How was your week? I guess I should say weeks, since I missed last week. Sorry, I was so busy playing catch up from the cruise, and I was barely on the computer at all! We have been playing with some delicious recipes, though. Cookies, cakes, and stir fry oh my!!!!
There are so many things bringing me happiness, I can’t wait to share them with y’all. Are you ready?
- Have you discovered the Welcome to Night Vale podcast. Oh my, y’all – it’s like H.P. Lovecraft, Neil Gaman, and Stephen King got together, created a world, and then walked away letting it just go on.
- The Arrow t.v. series, do y’all know this series? I love it. We got rid of cable/t.v. about 3 months ago and we now use Fire TV Stick and Apple TV through which we stream HULU and Netflix – love. love. love.
- Thanks to an incredible partnership with NRG & Reliant, on March 22nd, Nathan and I are going to see Luke Bryan at the Houston Rodeo and thanks to their generosity, I’m also running a giveaway for a reader to win 2 tickets to see Luke Bryan, a $200 Justin Boots Voucher and an NRG portable power pack!!! << there’s also a recipe for smoked turkey legs.
