Getting the D on V-Day

I’m sure most of you were looking to see some sort of action last night. Unfortunately for us, I’ve got the flu. There were no lacey sets, mood music, or candles. Why? Because this kinda-sorta-fit-chick must be wooed with an impressive menu! To hell with gifts. Shower me with decadent sauces and cremes! Am I right? The beau was amazing and ordered our Valentine’s Day dinner from The Cheesecake Factory. And honey, let…

MENSES: A Tale of Shameful Proportions

TOM may or may not be visiting. I also, may, or may not, have eaten half a container of cream cheese frosting. Ok – so I did. Baby…it was AMAZING! Did I need the 1000 calories?     No.  Do I regret the sweet decadence of such richness on a spoon?  Absolutely not. Might I recommend this activity to others?  You bet your ass I do! Grab a spoon, grab…

FUEGO – The Yummy Kind!

Fuego! Tortilla Grill IH 35 North, San Marcos, TX 78666 (512) 754-8226 {The Best “Pit-Stop” I’ve experienced heading south!} Let’s start with the appetizers, shall we? I’m always terrified of trying guac and queso at restaurants. It’s one of those combos that are either incredibly awful, or amazingly scrumptious. Thankfully, FUEGO provides the latter – yummy, chunky guacamole with piping hot tortilla chips. They’re not too salty, and just the perfect amount of…

Shaking Off Stress

That’s right – I’m back bitches! Here we are, 7 weeks into the semester…wondering, where the heck did the time go? Week 8 starts tomorrow, and I feel like this weekend didn’t even happen. I spent all day Saturday hacking up a lung, crumpled up into a ball, wishing for sweet, sweet death. Thankfully, it didn’t come. Whew. Sunday has proven a better health day. A breathe-easier, even though your lungs…

Chiles Rellenos: Burning Down the House

Chile – you may know it as a country or the little devil peppers that intimidate tomatoes in a mean salsa. Last week, the beau happened across a coworker eating Chiles Rellenos, stuffed peppers, and decided I must make them for him. Talk about hellacious! I’d never made chiles rellenos, mostly because once you fry a pepper, the wonderful crunchiness gets blown away. The chewy, damn near rubberized mess, kind…

Family Time: When Monsters Visit

The not-so little mini monsters came to visit last week! We had a pretty packed, fun-filled experience. It was my duty to wear them OUT, before getting them back to their mom & pop, my loving Aunt and Uncle. First night, we spent in. That meant, we were going to have a cooking adventure! So what did we decide on? A FISH FRY!     Everything was scrumptious. Here’s a helpful…

Dating Advice

  Oooh, the good stuff.    Get comfy. Here’s the secret – Put yourself out there! It’s frustrating to hear that a woman is “waiting for the right guy.” Let me tell you what…THE PERFECT MAN DOES NOT EXIST! [neither does the perfect woman] I’m not sure which fairytale, Disney movie, or romance novel you read, but this perfect guy or girl is a figment of your imagination, trapped within the…

Marine Monday – Memorial Day

I spent all day wondering what today’s theme should be; what I wanted to write. I racked my mind all day, thinking mostly about my brothers and absent-mindedly buying their favorite snacks (Patch has a thing for cheese-dips and chips, while David has an almost unhealthy addiction to Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream) at Central Market. All day, these goofballs were running through my thoughts, so much so I distracted…

DIY – GeoWalls

I promise to learn how to slow down gifs…tomorrow. I was really stoked to get this together for you guys. The edited version will soon be posted. Until then…laugh at the ridiculousness of this one. Bahaha! As you can see, one of my besties and I decided to paint an accent wall this weekend. For a grand total of $43.11 and 3.5 hours of sweat equity, our awesome geo-inspired wall…
