Garden Update

It’s been a while since I’ve shown off my garden. I haven’t harvested anything yet, but the plants (all except the tomato) seem to be doing well. I just recently planted the squash in the ground because they were trying to escape the pots and I finally got some compost to mix in with the … Continue reading

Three Things My Garden Has Taught Me So Far

I apologize for my total blog abandonment in the month of June. Now that my super intense summer class is over I plan on getting back on track.  Since I’ve been gone my garden has been doing pretty good except for the tomatoes.

Scentsy, Painting, and Video Games

Last weekend I really enjoyed being out of school and kept myself pretty busy. On Friday night and Saturday morning I super cleaned the house for a Scentsy Party that I was hosting.

New Garden Area In Process

This past weekend I went down to the farm with my dad to help with the animals and while I was there I worked with him in the garden. They are growing all sorts of things: Squash, Zucchini, Okra, Black Eyed Peas, Spinach, Corn, and a few others I don’t remember. Working with him and reading … Continue reading

This recipe comes from a customer at my previous job and it is super delicious and easy. Baked Beef Taquitos Ingredients: 1 lb of … Continue reading

Playing with Fire……Oops!

My neighbor Jen and I have had quite a few adventures. I think the one that stands out in my mind the most is when I went over to help her make orange chicken and fried rice for dinner and we almost burned her house down. It was a cold dreary winter day….. Strike that, … Continue reading
