LOVE this album. A week or two ago Jeremy and I went to his CD release party for "A Perfect Day" and as usual, we had a BLAST. To all of you Austinites who have never seen Bob Schneider in concert- please add to your bucket list. He is a great artist, but he BY FAR puts on the best show. He gets you dancing, singing, swaying, and having an overall great time.

Skip buying lunch today, eat your a sandwich at your desk and listen to this instead. You can thank me later. :)

Easter sweetness...

Just some things I have been obsessing about this Easter season...

I am not a huge fan of peeps, however anything covered in chocolate deserves a fair shot....

Pretty much the sole reason I go down the "Holiday" aisle this time of year.... AND only 190 calories in one of these small packages!!! WINNING! :)

This cake from i am baker is so gorgeous I don't know if I could even eat it..... hahaha- who am I kidding?

And last but not least I hope we all remember the reason for this season, our Lord and Savior. He suffered, died, and was buried for our sins and our salvation. Please remember to give thanks this week for the ULTIMATE sacrifice and celebrate the most glorious day of the year- HE IS RISEN!

Happy Easter Loves!

The boys of Summer...

Get ready kids... it's baseball season. I know I'm technically a little late, but I'm SO FLIPPIN PUMPED! I hope the Cardinals have a great season and I hope the Astros do too, just not as good as the red birds. ;)

For those of you who do not know me, you might ask- born and raised in Texas, even lived in Houston for five years, why the heck is this girl a Cardinals fan?! I shall explain. My entire family is from southern Illinois, (shout out to the Juicy Peanut!) about 30 minutes outside of St. Louis.

*for those of you like my boyfriend who apparently never studied a map, yes the state of Missouri is right next to the state of Illinois, St. Louis being ON the Mississippi River that divides the two states*

ANYWHO. So my parents grew up outside of St. Louis, both parents even worked/went to school in St. Louis. They have been raised with red bird blood (kinda like tiger blood, eh Charlie?) and they have passed that wonderful spirit ont0 their kiddos. Both of my grandmothers could beat anyone I know in Cardinal trivia. We joke, but no lie- my grandmother has a shrine to Willy McGee ('82-'90, '96-'99) in her spare bedroom. We have so many VHS tapes on the many World Series Championships (10 to be exact), a few on the Wizard (Ozzie Smith - if you did not know this Google him immediately!), and I'm sure there are some on the construction of the new Busch Stadium.

So. Do you get it now? I love my family and we love the Cardinals. 'Nuff said. :) Happy Spring y'all and GO CARDINALS!

Hahahahahaa. LOVE THIS. Welcome to St. Louis, Big Puma!
