The Best Medicine

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. I mean a big-fat-you-can’t-breathe-tears-rolling-down-your-face and-are-about-to-pee-in-your-pants kind of laugh.

I’m very fortunate in that everyone in my life has the ability to make me laugh like that. And that is probably the reason why they are still in my life. So this TBT is honoring the silliness that comes with great friendships. This picture was taken a few years ago at BFF & BFFH’s What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas Wedding.

It was such an amazing few days–and honestly it had nothing to do with the hotel, the food (and when do I ever admit that?!?!?), or the sights. It was quite simply the amazing group of people and non-stop laughter.

It was truly good for the soul.

okay, okay…and the steak tartare wasn’t too shabby either. 😉

My Bubba and Me!

This throwback Thursday isn’t very far back–about a year ago on a trip home (if you follow Epicurious Texan on FB, you totally would have seen the burgers from Alamo Springs Cafe).  Anyway, since tomorrow is his birthday (Happy Birthday Bubba!), I thought it only appropriate that this TBT include a pic of him 🙂

An Epcot Throwback

20140729-220827-79707512.jpg

The lucky winner of this TBT is my BFF and BFFH, whose anniversary is this week. I can’t divulge with you the exact date date because they had a “What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas” wedding. A few years ago, they moved within driving distance to Disney World. On one of my first trips down to visit the new digs, they asked if I wanted to go to Disney World (duh!) and if so, which park. Being diplomatic and a world traveler, I chose Epcot because the whole world is there, they had their spring flower extravaganza…and, well, they sell alcohol. Hello German beer, French champagne, Mexican margaritas, and hats from China and Norway!! Oh and before I forget, Happy Anniversary Sissy & TK!!

Napa Valley, Circa 2004

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 10 years since my trip to Napa Valley, CA!

like a scene from a movie–out front of the Francis Ford Coppola Winery

It definitely serves as a reminder that I need to go back and soon!
