Crickets Chirping.

Hello, my lovely ladies. I just wanted to drop in and do a quick scattered post. I feel like a horrible blogger between working and taking care of the home front and entertaining my Marine. I am so busy. Not to mention I have nothing really to post about. I am excited that I have 46 followers. Woo, maybe a bloggy giveaway if/when I hit 50! How do those work? Help?

My mom and dad are both out of town for the week(end). My mom went to her mother's house for the WEEK! Yes, a week with out my mom around the house. Meaning, I J. Leigh, is taking on some responsibility and learning the life of a wife/mother. It is different. I have found out I need to learn to cook and experiment. I have no clue what I am going to do when I move out in a year and can't cook for my Marine and I. Any ideas on what I can do to improve that area?

As for my dad he went to Lake Rayburn for the weekend. He was home for 2 days and then he left me AGAIN! I don't like this whole home alone thing. Luckily for me, my best friend Haylee is coming over to keep me company! : )

I seem to be hearing wedding bells and making plans more often now that I have this promise ring. : ) I love it. I can't quit looking at it. If I hit a rough spot in my day, I look at it and I hear his voice telling me he loves me and that if my day is going bad just look at it and remember he loves me. It hasn't failed yet at making me smile : )

Hmm, I have nothing else really to post on.

Oh, I am a little upset that there is going to be a Texas Blog Party and I won't be able to attend. : /

Um, ok I am out of things to say. Just send a little advice my way on my cooking problem and how blog giveaways work. : )


  1. Dont worry dear, there will always be other blog parties! LOL. Have a great weekend!

  2. try
    If i don't know how to cook something, I always go there.
    or I watch the cooking channel.
    <3 it!

    Although, I grew up cooking so, I can make just about everything.

  3. I've never done a blog giveaway but if you want, I can give you a few pointers? hah

    You can have people comment on your post that has the giveaway and pick a random number and that person wins. Or, you can have "entries" where if people give you a follower or blog about your giveaway they get an "entry" and the more entries they get, the better the chances they have of winning. Hope this helps! Have a great 4th of July!

  4. I'm obsessed with the Food Network! Definitely check those out and you can find a certain style or taste you're looking for.

    And the website I use is

  5. I posted swap partners!
