Why I stayed up too late

I didn’t put on makeup today. I didn’t fix my hair. I didn’t do much of anything.  I’m going to blame it all on Post-birthday, Gin and Tonic, Sleep Deprived, Sugar Overload Syndrome. Putting it simply, I had a birthday party last night and I stayed up too late. There were numerous cocktails poured last … [Read more…]

New lens

So Nate ordered me some photography goodies for my birthday. He’s dangerous on Amazon. He chose a 70-300 zoom/macro lens and I’m just now getting to play with it. I still need lots of practice, but I’m getting the hang of it. It will allow me to get very close to things like one of … [Read more…]

Blue Corn Chipotle Shrimp Bites

One of my favorite restaurants is Z’Tejas in Austin, Texas. Perhaps I love it so much because I see so many friendly faces there. Several friends have worked there through the years. Including my friend Clay who sometimes works the bar and my BFF Brent who was a waiter there at one point. The list … [Read more…]

Happy Birthday Aunt G!

It’s my Aunt G’s Birthday! Here is a great  picture of my Uncle Floyd, my mom Debbie (center) and Aunt Gail taken in 1964.  I love the shirts my mom and Gail are wearing. My Nanny probably sewed them.  There are a lot of August birthdays in my family.

While I did this, Nate once again proved just how awesome he is by going to the grocery store and reigning in the chaos at home … [Read more…]

Sweet Face

Just look at this sweet face. I love this face. Those of you who have met Sadie will know what I mean when I say this … Sigh. Dog-Hair Tumbleweeds


I’ve been gone a few days pulling my website over to WordPress. I like all the features here a little better than my Iweb. Hope those of you who have been reading will keep checking in — I’ll have some new things up and going soon. Take care!

Banh-Mi (Beware the Fish Sauce)

  Banh-Mi is a Vietnamese sandwich.    Around these parts, a Banh-Mi will usually set you back about $2. My friend Duy introduced me to his native country’s Banh-Mi several years ago. My relationship with the Banh-Mi started off very rocky when Duy forgot to mention that these sandwiches often feature raw jalapenos.  Once I … [Read more…]
