Coffee my way

Today I am teaming up with MayFair talking about #CoffeeMyWay. I get out of bed knowing that I can have coffee. It literally is the only thing that makes me get up. I am not a morning person so I need a little something to make my morning better and wake me up. I get up turn my Keurig on. While I was on our girls trip to New York we went to the Kelly & Michael show and I purchased this mug and its my favorite mug thus far. I seem to have a habbit of collecting mugs.

While the Keurig is heating I light the candles and turn on my Scentsy. I have an obsession with smells and love a good smelling house.

By now my the water is heated and its ready to pick out which K-cup I am feeling for that day. I don't have a favorite that I use everyday. It all depends on my mood for that day or week. My favorites that I go to are Starbucks, Folders, and Donut Shop while the hubs only likes Community. This is why I love my Keurig because I can pick and choose flavors. I have been using great value zero calorie sweetener for my coffee and I put 3 individual packets into my coffee. I then add a splash of 2% milk. Then my coffee is good to go

I take my cup of coffee into the living room and sit down for my morning ritual: I start out with my Jesus Calling devotional, next I take a look at the EC planner and see what the day has in store, then I will get on the computer and blog, check emails, do a little online shopping or Pinterest pinning. After that my coffee is all gone and its time to start job as a Mommy and Wife. 



This is my #CoffeeMyWay
What's yours?

What Im reading while stuck inside

While have an entire week out of school and being so unproductive I caught up on some books that were stored in my kindle app. A friend of mine and I were discussing The Partner by John Grisham and she said well if you like that book then you would also like the series of Untouchable, Unforgivable, & Untraceable. So I downloaded the samples (that's what I always do to see if I am going to like it or not and after reading it I knew yes I am going to have to keep on reading. If you haven't read these then you have to add them to your list of books.
Picking a boyfriend can be murder, but for Annalisa Winslett, it might end up being the literal death of her.
No one at Pensacola High School suspects the girl they know as Annalisa McKinnis to be a wealthy heiress in hiding, but things begin to unravel when two new guys enroll. Both guys are gorgeous, and both are trying to win her over. The only problem is that one of them has a million dollar contract to put a bullet in her.
When her pure and innocent heart is offered to him, will this cold and empty hitman fall, or will he remain untouchable?
This book is the beginning of a wild ride in Lindsay Delagair's best selling trilogy that will make you wonder if the power of love can truly conquer all. Book one builds the tension for the passion and erotic connection that blooms in book two (Unforgivable), and book three (Untraceable) brings you to the astonishing conclusion of the star-crossed lovers.

Annalisa believes she finally has a chance to share forever with Micah, but her fear that something will destroy their happiness grows stronger every day. He changed everything to be with her, leaving his horrible past far behind as they begin to see a bright and beautiful future together. Unfortunately, someone in the mob isn't willing to let go of their best hit man.
   The second book in the Untouchable trilogy takes you on a journey of love, passion, sacrifice, heartbreak, and hope. She touched his heart, but what happens next should be…Unforgivable.

The final installment in the Untouchable trilogy winds through a tangled web of shattered lives, the pursuit of power, and the unfailing strength of love.
Annalisa knew from the beginning that she was falling in love with a dangerous man. But, she also knew that underneath his cold and empty hitman exterior, beat the heart of the man who would love her forever. Against insurmountable odds, Micah and Annalisa have finally reached a place in their lives where he can make a promise to her. It is a promise he never thought would have been possible at one time: He will never take another human life. 
But when tragedy strikes, and their happiness is destroyed, Micah must decide if he should keep his promise, or should he pursue those responsible. Especially when he realizes it involves the most feared man in the U.S. mafia, a man who can make anyone...Untraceable.

Let me know what you think. Its so many twists and turns until the very last page

Deployment Ceremonry 1023rd

Maci's teacher had a friend that her husband is being deployed.
She thought this would be a great field trip and a way to get the kids involved and show support to our troops. I knew I was going to need tissues so I bought a whole box.
 I cant say enough thank yous to these brave men and women. 

The 6th grade class with the real hero James Pirtle
We are praying for a safe return

This is where I totally lost it when I saw his daughters shirt.
Its so true and I think a lot of times we get so caught up in our daily lives that we forget that each and every day these families are without their loves ones. I know she is so proud of her Daddy

Congressman Ralph Abarham was there to speak and show his support to the troops.
He spoke to the kids and asked the questions about politics and how important education is. 

This was so touching and I think this was one of the most special and we will not forget this field trip. If you have never been to a deployment ceremony I encourage you to do so.

H5 heads to dey Bayou

As soon as basketball ends softball starts. We had one free weekend left in between them so we loaded the kids up and headed South on down to Baton Rouge to watch LSU girls play a double header. When we woke the kids up they are so grouchy and irritable and I thought lets just stay at home I am not dealing with them all day like this but as we got on the road they turned around their moods and it was a great day to say the least.
I  know what you are thinking: How does a Bam lovin girl enjoy anything involving LSU?
Here is my answer: I was a LSU fan Saban was there and when he left I went with him but still cheering on the Tigers also and then the more I watched them the more Les Miles worked all up on my nerves child and I just couldn't take it. My heart lies with Saban. He reminds me so much of my Boo and I just roll with Saban so I am basically a no teams fan I am a Saban fan.
So there ya have it I don't dislike or hate LSU its Les that I despise.

 For lunch we decided to grab something close around the campus.
It was delicious and if you are ever around I would def suggest you stopping in.
I got the Shrimp PoBoy, kids got thin fried catfish, and Nick got a chicken and bacon sandwich and for out appetizer of course we got the cheese fries.

On the beverage napkins this is what we found.
Go for those goals babygirl

We stopped by the LSU boys practice game at the Alex Box stadium
The kids climber all over Mike

We had really good seats and the weather was warm it was a perfect day for some softball

The hubs is always thrilled when taking pictures can you tell?

Crazy story I came across this girl on vine and followed her for a while not realizing that she played for LSU softball until last year when I started following her IG. I can honestly say my girl B turned me onto LSU softball. Right after that LSU came to the college in the nearest town and we went and watcher her play while Maci watched her favorite Baylee Corbello 
Every time LSU would strike a player out they throw 3 t-shirts out to the crowd.

LSU won the first game and now its on to the next

The girl loving them some LSU softball.
Love seeing these sister share and create memories together.
Talking softball talk and cheering the tigers on hollering for the player and doing the Tiger cheer

Mauri Laken won the dance contest and won a prize pack.
I know her Daddy didn't know what to do be happy or worry for her future. LOL
She has always been a Longhorn fan until yesterday I think this trip may have converted her so we shall see. I mean her favorite color has always been purple. 

AJ: I call her lightening because she is faster than lightening 

We got to see Bianka hit it over: HOMERUN hitter and ya never going to get her so give up

Won the second game as well 

The girls got their softball signed and Rhett did a poster

 Maci & Baylee Corbello
Maci was so excited to talk to her and take a picture.
She thought Maci was a pitcher but her build she just smiled and said no it was sweet

Mauri telling B you play my spot, I'm short stop too

Excited girls I think they had a blast

Every time we come through Natchez we have wanted to eat at Roux 61 but it was either closed or the wait time was out of this world long. We came through around 9:45pm and finally got to stop in.
It didn't disappoint either. I see why the wait is always long. Ah-maze-ing!

We got the cheese sticks and they were huge.
I got the Roux61 pasta and it was one of the best things I've ever put into my mouth.
The shrimp were enormous and the sauce was out of this world. 
My Rhett man was glad we finally got to enjoy this place

We are already planning another trip back
