Happy New Year! I hope your holidays have been wonderful and bright and all that jazz. I recently have been playing host to 4 friends from very different parts of the globe. Now that they have all gone, stillness has quietly crept back into my house (aside from the yelling at the &%*I$(#^&^%$^ football game), … Continue reading La Bella Vita
In trying to find pictures for Throwback Thursday, I realized I have a lot of pictures of adult beverages (that is said with pride, by the way). As such, I’ve decided rather than share pictures of me with bad 80s hair and glasses that legitimately covered half my face, I could easily share glasses of … Continue reading Back on Track with Thirsty Thursdays!
Since mid-August, I feel like my crazy life has been one big trip. That is not a complaint in any way, shape, or form–just a statement of fact, as for the most part all the trips were amazingly wonderful. But there is something to be said for being at home with the pupcicle and doing … Continue reading Giving Thanks
Okay, I’ll admit it–I’m not the best about reading the Travel Guides thoroughly. Sure, if something catches my eye, I will read it. But for the most part, I just skim and glance and flip through the pictures. So when I read that The Florida Keys had over a thousand islands, it didn’t register properly. Obiviously, … Continue reading The Road On The Overseas Highway Is Paved With Good Intentions
I wasn’t actually planning on Margarita Monday to be a regular thing, but I figured what the heck–who doesn’t like margaritas?!?!? Also, if you’d like a picture of your tasty margarita to appear here for Margarita Mondays, please tweet it to me @epicurioustexan! In honor of today’s Big Birthday: Not 40, Just Fabulous, I thought … Continue reading Margarita Monday, Part Cuatro
Now that you have The Jackson Five playing background music in your head, I have a confession. You know those silly/annoying emails that circulate every couple of years in which you answer questions about yourself? Yeah, I’m one of those annoying people who not only fills them out, but sends them to nearly everyone in … Continue reading Easy as ABC…
One of the earliest memories I have is going with Granny to the nursing home to visit her father, Pa. We never stayed long, just a few minutes (probably because she had a little rugrat in tow!)–just long enough to say hi, ask how Pa was doing and hand over a bag of candy. My … Continue reading A Peep at My Sweet Tooth
Remember my post about Wine Pairing where I mentioned a special Burgundy I had collecting dust at the bottom of my wine rack? Well, I recently went to Florida to celebrate the Big Birthday (a little early) with the BFF & BFFH. I thought it would be the perfect time to take The Burgundy along … Continue reading Savoring Life
Yesterday started my birthday week. By that, I don’t mean it’s the week of my birthday, but rather: starting yesterday, I have at least one birthday a day until the end of the month (and yes, I know it’s technically 8 days, but channel your inner Beatles and work with me here people!). The only … Continue reading Birthdays Galore!
I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like the most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person. –Audrey Hepburn Never underestimate the power of a good, hearty laugh. I’m not talking about a slightly fake he he he. … Continue reading The Best Medicine
