Concert Series Part 1 - COLDPLAY!

This was my 3rd time seeing Coldplay and let me just say that they NEVER disappoint!! EVER!! They are such an amazing and talented group of guys! If you want to go to a concert and hear people sing and sound like they do on a CD then go to a Coldplay concert! 2 really cool new things this year! Electronic bracelets!! They lit up to the beat...AWESOME!!!! My pictures and videos do not do them justice...there were beautiful neon lights blinking everywhere! Also at the end of their "runway" the platform was in the shape of TEXAS!! They played all of the best songs!! If I could be a tour groupie it would totally be with them!! I hope their new CD comes out soon!!

 Posing with props!
I originally had a blue and pink one, but had to exchange it for my PINK and GREEN!! Hello DZ!!

Can you see the Texas outlined in red?!!!
Enjoying my light!!!
Like A LOT!! 

Then when you least expect it....The guys came to play in OUR SECTION!!! I could have fainted!!!

Port A!!! Hey Hey Hey!!!

I think I am almost recovered from the amazing 4 day weekend I had with my high school girlfriends! We had a BLAST! We stayed at a beautiful beach house, partied at Bernie's 3 nights in a row and relaxed at the beach during the day! It was so good spending with everyone and getting a little silly!! 

Can we go back again ASAP?!!!! SO MUCH FUN!!!

Thankful Thursday - High School Friends!

Being from a small town really makes you appreciate people and the friendships you form with them. We have grown up together and celebrated so many special occasions with each other. It truly is a special bond and no matter how much time goes by; when we get together we do not skip a beat. This weekend we will be having a girls trip to Port A!! I'm so excited to spend time with everyone and have some fun in sun!!

Love you ladies!!
This was taken at Kinsey's baby shower a little over a year ago and Miss Harper will be joining us on her first trip to Port A!!! 

 Let the good times roll!!!!!!!!!!!

Also going on this weekend is my Delta Zeta Pledge class reunion. I'm so sad I can't go, but I know they will tear the dance floor up for me! Miss the ladies so much!! 

Ahhhhh Delta Ahhhh Zeta!! lol

Today is my FRIDAY!! So I will see you next week! TTYL

Turtle Time Texas!!

If you are a real housewife fan then you might be familiar with Turtle Time!! That is right, Ramona Singer from RHWNY was in the house last night! Houston, Texas to be exact! Laila invited Ashley and I to Ramona's Pinot Grigio wine tasting at Spec's where we then go to meet her and have our bottles signed! She is also designing jewelry and told us about her new pieces. She is making some really cute little turtle charms. We tried to tell her that the turtle was our sorority mascot, but no can get a word in....Ramona takes control of every conversation! Hmm, I guess some things you see on reality TV are real, lol! All in all it was a neat experience!

Ramona posing!

Ashley, Laila and I with Ramona!
I hope her professional photographer got a better pic of us, need to check!

We did get to sample the PG and it tasted crisp, can't wait to pop my bottle! LOL

Thankful Thursday - Garden Goodness!

One of my favorite things about the summer is my parents garden! There are peppers, tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, zucchini, okra, onions and more!  There is nothing better than home grown vegetables! It's always very plentiful...sometimes not all at the same time. I will end up having a ton of cucumbers or zucchini sometimes and will have to wait for some of the other veggies. I usually grill, boil and bake them. I never want anything to go to waste so I have started to look for new ways to get some veggie intake! Enter zucchini chips! It's a perfect snack. This recipe calls for 2 zucchini's, but you will notice that everything shrinks...So sometimes I double the recipe for more chips!

Zucchini Chips

(serves 1) - Double to make more!
2 zucchini
1tsp of olive oil
1/4 tsp of salt - I normally cut the salt, but you can do whatever you like!
1/4 – 1/2 tsp of garlic powder - I normally use real garlic
ground pepper (to taste)

1) slice 2 medium zucchinis (about 1/2 pound each) thinly with a mandolin
2) toss the sliced zucchini's in a bowl with olive oil, salt and garlic powder
3) spray a baking sheet and place them on there on the pan
4) sprinkle them with freshly ground pepper
5) preheat the oven to about 400f and bake for 30min turning them over once at 15min

Wine and a Wedding!!

While Greg is away on his amazing Europe trip he has sent me a few pics!  This is in Heidelberg, it's so pretty! Love all of the rustic roofs and the mountains that nestle the little town!

Friday night I had 2 girlfriends over! We just wanted to do a simple wine and pizza night! 6 bottles later we were having a ball! Even my neighbors came over for a little while!! A very fun Friday!

Saturday I went to a wedding back home for one of my best guy friends!! Trent and I were literally born 2 days apart and our moms ended up sharing a room together in the hospital! The nurse would bring us in together! I had always heard about Trent, but it was not until High School that we met and become instant friends!

Overall it was a great weekend!

I'm so excited to join the blogger community!! I'm Selena and welcome to The Heights Life! I'm a lover of all things food, travel, champagne, fashion finds, family, friends, beaches, animals, cotton candy, University of Houston, peonies, music and this beautiful life god has given us!

I live in the Heights, which is a tiny suburb of Houston!  One of the oldest in city actually! It has a small town feel, which I love because I'm a small town in a lonely word. Yes I love Journey!

Meet Greg! The boyfriend!! We have been dating for almost 4 years!! We met of the 4th of July and sparks flew!! LOL!

North Shore, HI

The first day we met!  Many thanks to my friend Crystal who is an amazing photographer!

Meet Riley, my little fur boo bear!! I have always lived in apartments prior to moving to the Heights and I love animals so a cat seemed practical!  I also saved him from a snake man...we will get to that story at a later date and time! I really want a puppy (wish list)  now since we have more room!

Riley Boo Bear and I in the younger days!!

I love to have a good time! Love to dance and celebrating is pretty much what I'm doing every weekend! Weddings, birthdays, baby showers, bar mitzvah's, bridal showers, rain get the drift! I would not be who I am without my amazing family and friends! Love them!

This is me at my 25th wigging out birthday party!

Did I mention that I LOVE Cotton Candy!! Hands down my fav!! I really need my own machine!

 Katy Perry concert last summer!
