Oh my goodness!
Did you catch The Voice last night?
Spoiler alert to those who may have not.
What an amazing performance by Chris Blue on Alicia Keys’ team. He covered Bruno Mars’ 24K Magic. And it was magic! He is so freaking good!
Not only his singing but those moves! I was like WOW!!! Totally blown away.
Fingers crossed he’ll still be in the competition after tonight’s eliminations. Alicia and Blake both say that he’s unstoppable, and according to what I heard and saw, I’m with them 100%!
Go Chris Go!
How exciting to receive a box of goodies in the mail!
My first Birchbox arrived today filled with all kinds of new beauty products to try.
It came in a bubble envelope and inside was a sealed box and my free gift for signing up.
Upon opening the sealed box, voila! The famous Birchbox box!
I know… I’m easily amused! That’s what my husband tells me all the time.
When you sign up for Birchbox, they ask you questions about yourself so that they can customize the contents of your box. Questions about your skincare type and needs, your hair type, your beauty care preferences, etc.
You know the saying about how things always work out for the best?
Well, I’m a definite believer, and it seems that this was one of those times, and time for me to try a new salon this week. Due to fun unexpected happenings and scheduling reasons, I had to take the plunge.
Since the last time we talked hair and salons, I made the decision to go back to coloring my hair, and it was also time for a new Bob style.
After a little research online deciding which area salon to try, I chose Paul Mitchell’s In Color Salon here in Atascocita, and so glad I did! I had the time of my life, met some new friends, and got a fantastic new do!
Upon calling the salon, I was very pleasantly surprised that they did actually have an opening that same evening. They stay open till 8 pm, three nights a week. So convenient for after work appointments.
I was scheduled with Brittany, a Master Stylist, and was told that she had been with the salon for 10 years, so I felt very comfortable going in.
And master she is! Oh my goodness… I have been getting a Bob style cut for many years and do not ever remember anyone being as precise as Brittany. My husband told her after the cut that she was the first person he’d ever seen sitting in a chair to cut hair. And that was certainly my first experience with that as well. When she cut the sides, she put herself right at eye level with where she was cutting so that it would be a very clean edge. Every detail of the cut, from beginning to end, was perfection. And she did it with such seemingly ease. You can tell that she’s more than experienced in her artistry.
And my new do!
Brittany made me feel welcome from the get-go. We had a consult, she looked at the pictures I had as examples, and knew exactly the style that I was wanting. She told me that she really enjoys doing this type of cut, and that was exciting and assuring news to me.
Steak, fried potatoes, sauteed onions and garlic topped with provolone and Mexican blended cheeses… Are you thinking yum??
I came up with this idea when I was thinking about what I wanted to make for dinner the other night. I had a nice piece of steak left over from a previous night’s dinner and wanted to incorporate that into another delicious meal.
I knew I had flour tortillas, so yay! Let’s make steak quesadillas. But why not kick it up a bit? My husband makes the most delicious fried cubed potatoes, so light bulb!
He agreed to make the potatoes for our new meal idea, so we got together and came up with this! The steak and potato quesadilla is a very easy recipe in and of itself, and we’re also sharing my husband’s how to for his delicious potatoes and the onion/garlic saute that accompanies them.
First, the ingredients:
Steak – Fully cooked and thinly sliced
Fried Potatoes – We used cubed sized for our quesadillas (recipe to follow)
Sauteed Onions and Garlic (recipe to follow)
Smokey Provolone Cheese Slices (or shredded)
Shredded Mexican Blended Cheeses
Easy Peasy. This recipe is so versatile as well. You could make these with a different protein, add any veggies you like, your favorite cheeses, etc. Have fun and be creative!
When I put these quesadillas together I like to line my counter with a strip of foil or paper towels. It makes for very easy cleanup afterward.
Simply lay your tortillas out and start filling. I place a slice of provolone cut in half onto one side of the tortilla (the half pieces side by side on the arc of the tortilla) then I spoon on some fried potatoes, a little of the onion and garlic saute, followed by bite size pieces of steak and then top it all with the shredded Mexican blend of cheeses.

The love of Texas and the pride of being a Texan is something that cannot be explained. It’s just that special something that’s deep rooted in a Texan’s heart.
That’s why I was instantly drawn to this family and their small business. They’re all about Texas pride, and displaying your Texas pride for all to see.

Love this! What a fun and easy way to customize your own t-shirts for Spring/Summer. From lovelyiam, a step by step on the process of diy bleach spray t-shirt design.
Enjoy! I hope you make some crazy fun shirts. I know I’ll be trying this!
I am so excited to share this next craft with you – it’s such a quick and easy way to customise a plain t-shirt, and create something that looks really cool. I was inspired by DIY YouTuber Annika Victoria who was re-creating a look by clothing designer The Left Bank.
As you will be working with bleach for this particular craft, make sure you are in a well ventilated area, and as you are spraying a bleach solution, ensure that it is safe to do so and that you don’t have any pets or children running around that could get in the way! I would strongly recommend that you wear gloves, and stay safe when doing this craft.

What an exciting adventure!
And it all happened at Zachary’s Cajun Cafe in Kingwood, TX
I decided a while back that I would like to visit different eateries in our area on a quest to find the best burger(s) around town. I had heard of Zachary’s several times from family members who are in love with their cajun cuisine. I had no idea that they would be serving burgers and none the less have on their menu “Kingwood’s Best” Burger.
I found this out as we were planning a get together for my Son’s 26th birthday and Zachary’s was decidedly the destination of choice.
Well then of course I was very excited about trying this burger, and rightly so. It’s really really good. A half pound of flat grilled goodness to be exact, cooked just the way I like it. A bit charred on the outside – Yum. The buns are very soft, topped with mayo, and filled with lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and onions. It was really delicious. My husband and I both ordered the burger and both enjoyed it. The fries are nice and crispy. So an awesome meal all the way around.
Now… I know you’re most likely eager to find out about this Bayou Beast that’s being conquered.
