I know what you’re thinking. National Treasure, right? Well, that’s about how good I feel after my finds. 🙂 No gold for me. Just books & music. And I’m quite pleased with them. (Many thanks to my good friend, D!) Check out my newly acquired trove below: I’ve been a Food Network/TV Chef fan for as long as I can remember. I even remember Julia reruns from when I was growing up. 1. Mastering the Art of French Cooking: After watching Julie & Julia, I knew I had to get this book. I’m not the biggest fan of French cuisine…but … Continue reading treasure hunter
Back by popular demand is another round of photo safari goodness! *hooray!* I had 4 major goals for this evening: spend “be still” time with the Lord run eat at Stubb’s BBQ fulfill a sweet tooth fantasy at Amy’s Ice Cream I’m happy to say I accomplished ALL of my goals…and even walked away with a bonus feature – a vintage treasure, if you will. (Comment for a hint. Yes, I’m going to be vague again. If you read these side musings of mine and actually comment, then I must know you and love you dearly. I see so many … Continue reading Bonus Blog Friday | nothing beats going there
So, I had a change of plans. I decided to postpone my running until EARLY tomorrow morning (SO incredibly rare for me since I’m a night/midnight runner at heart.) I would rather not be attacked or kidnapped on the poorly lit (due to nightfall) 4.5 mile track between the hotel, river, and downtown. (Some of you follow me on Twitter & Facebook, so you should recognize the kidnapping reference from earlier…yeah….) This wicked cool photo safari happened due to a wrong turn. Seriously. This is yet another time where I am amazed at God’s providence, even in the “little” things. … Continue reading come on, baby! photo safari! (Austin style…meaning weird)
APPLE 1.0 | “You talk to me about RIGHTS?!“ Did you know that the Miranda rights were established on this day back in 1966? (Here’s a hidden treasure for you…click on the YouTube link attached to the quote above. ;)) APPLE 2.0 | bella musica Two MUST HAVE music recommendations (technically, I list 3, but who’s counting?). Here we go. APPLE 3.0 | Have a bite? I’m beyond ecstatic after last night’s Texas Rangers game. Going to the ballpark with a friend, sitting in great seats (thank you, Megan!), and WINNING?! It gets better. I tweeted about it. And the … Continue reading Wednesday Windfall | you have the right to remain silent
I am still alive, believe it or not. I had decided, back in early summer, to post something at least once a week. Fail. I am in survival mode. I haven’t quite raised the hand yet, but I’ve been close. Hopefully I will be back on the boat soon…speeding along the gorgeous tropical waters of life. (Seriously? Where do I come up with this stuff?) Here’s an interesting article y’all might enjoy. It has absolutely nothing to do with anything I pursue in my spare time. But it is relevant to the title of this post. Therefore, just do it. … Continue reading what’s the universal signal for drowning, again?
