Leaving on a jet plane

22 Dec

I’m sitting at the airport fighting off a cold with the beautiful JC and her family. We’ll be heading to Houston soon enough for a fun Christmas

Unfortunately, this means I will not be celebrating with my own family. Sad days. I do have gifts for all of them and we’ll do Christmas in the new year.

But this year will be a Texas style Christmas. I imagine lots of hats and belt buckles. Maybe some shot guns and steak ;).

I wish everyone a Happy Holidays!!!!!


My Perfect Valentine!

16 Feb

Monday was an amazing Valentine’s Day with the love of my life ,Jenny Cate! We did dinner and a movie and exchanged very similar presents!

Dinner was at Seasons 52. Wow! I absolutely love that place! This was actually our third visit in the past couple months. The first was just a date night and was JC’s first visit. Then we went for my mom’s birthday. I had something different each time and can’t complain about a single item on any course. They were all delicious!

What I Want for Christmas…

Happy Holidays!

So, my mom has always asked me what I want for Christmas and for as long as I can remember I have always answered “I dunno.” It seems to highly annoy my mom and she always threatens to get me coal! But I always have a hard time asking for things, because A.) I’m worried that I’m going to overstep my bounds and ask for something too expensive or B.) I like to be somewhat surprised on Christmas.

August Food Holidays

1 Aug

Since my good friend, the keeper of monkeys, USED to do a post every month telling us what we should be aware of for the month, I decided to write my own. What else is most important to me but food? So when I saw this Slashfood.com post I thought, “wow there is a lot of food to celebrate!”

First off, it is National Catfish Month!

Notice there seems to be a lot of dessert days? Probably because no one wants to celebrate brussels sprouts!

Do you think I made that up? Nope, thank you interwebs! I found that information on this page. If you scroll down far enough you will find the listing of food related holidays!

Hopefully some of those days will have associated food giveaways at a restaurant here or there and if I catch wind of it I will pass it along!
