Jimmy Dean Simple Scrambles®

This post is sponsored by Jimmy Dean® Brand, but the content and opinions are my own.


 
I found myself in a soul cycle spin class just tryin' to keep up. I pretended not to die as the class ended and I walked over to the water machine and grabbed a piece of fruit that sat nearby. A friend hollered out, "let's all take a group picture and post it as a thank you for them lettin' us have a free class." I chuckled as I recently walked over. "My edges ain't laid," I mumble as I tried to pat down my sweaty hair. 

A lady walked over as the photo ended and smiled. I think I follow you on Instagram she shyly rambled. I pretended not to listen. Didn't she hear me mumble my edges ain't laid? She continued, "Yes, I know I follow you. You are Glitz somethin'. You're always at that campin' store filmin' about your next adventure." I smiled before shakin' her hand. She wanted to know about my next adventure. We chatted for minutes before I awkwardly thanked her for the support. Always awkward puttina face to that number behind the screen.

The conversation had been much of the same lately. Plan a campin' trip or Texas adventure. Never in one place long,everythin' done at a rapid pace. Breakfast and exercise are now a priority to keep my strength in between so many experiences. 

Never one to sit still long, meals such a breakfast have become quick as I pour coffee and rush out the door. In came Jimmy Dean Simple Scrambles®. For years on end now my sister has stocked the freezer with Jimmy Dean Simple Scrambles®Bowls. I, not patient enough for an oven always frowned at her as I skipped on. 

I suppose I've taken a likin' to the Jimmy Dean SimpleScrambles® because they are quick and easy. It also helps that I can purchase them at my local Walmart in the meat section. Real food that I can cook in the microwave in a few minutes and then get out on the trails. Currently, much of the day in between bloggin' is spent preparin' for a trip to Hempstead Texas to help with some Hurricane rebuildin' on a local farm and a hike up Emory in Big Bend. Emory is the second largest peak in Texas and weathering premitin' we'll summit it before spring hits, and the harsh Texas sun makes it unsafe. 

What have Y'all been up to the start of this year? What are Y'alllovin' for breakfast?

TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hair Spray





Brunch, ahh yes brunch: My favorite meal of the weekend. We dream about it. We plan around it. Down here in The South brunch is a thing of beauty. This past weekend I attended the Dallas Observer Brunch Festival at the Dallas Farmers Market. Bopping around with friends tasting and drinking all the samples to offer.

The weather was a tad cool and humid and till the beautiful Texas sun decided to grace us with her presence. That isn't uncommon for Texas. One minute it can be pourin', the next minute hotter than the devil. It can make it hard to plan at times, but that's where TRESemmé comes in so handy. TRESemmé new compact Compressed Micro Mist Hair Spray is perfect. I love how there are four choices to chose. I went with the extended hold from my local Walmart. With how unpredictable this Texas weather can be it was nice to have.

I washed and conditioned my hair as I would any other week. I then applied for a leave-in conditioner I liked and began to two strand twist my hair. Part your hair in sections and being to twist them all over your head. Once you have twist all over your head you an begin to Bantu knot them. Take each twist you made and wrap it around until it forms a small knot that pokes out. Once I have knots all over my head, I sprayed a little of the TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hair Spray. Wrap your hair with a scrap or protective cap, and you are ready to sleep or finish on around the house. I slept in mind, and when I took them down the next mornin', I had perfect curls that looked fabulous under my hat.

What's your favorite way to curl your hair? Use #TRESTuesdays and #StyleWithoutStiffness to show off your curls.
