Looking Good Nude

I always liked the phrase, “in the buff” but I’ve come to the realization that I rather prefer the beau “buff” instead of myself. I don’t see myself being a buff woman. I do, however, want to be a strong woman. I’ve got the strong mind, strong spirit down – but I really need to work on the strong abs and impressive biceps. [You know, if I ever need to…

Dallasites Penguin Walk

DALLAS is gorgeous under snow and ice. But snow is better. The slick death on roads scares the Oreos out of me. Skidding on black ice is terrible. Ugh. Early this morning, the weather was in the 70s. Then BAM! 22 degrees, feeling like 8. Freezing temperatures were pushed aside as we bundled up and drifted to brunch. [Thankfully, I’m pretty pro at the penguin walk and did not have…

La Ventana

The beau’s parents came to visit!Per usual, we went out to enjoy some amazing food (mostly). Today, we tried a new pop-stand. La Ventana 1611 McKinney Ave. 214-484-6555 I got duped into thinking we were heading to Meso Maya, but we landed at the window here – right behind Meso Maya. Now, I judge a Mexican food establishment on several factors, but my main three are: 1. Chips & Salsa…

DIY Weekend

I hope you didn’t think I only know how to cook! That’s right, this girl loves some DIY. Thankfully, there haven’t been as many flops as successes. Plus, I’ve got a bestie who never quits! Even when we screw something up, we manage to fix it. So last weekend, when I got this wild idea to paint my bedroom [without telling the beau, who was out and about with friends]…

Booty-Shakin’

I realize there are plenty of skinny chefs, but this made me smile. :]Everyone has a different idea of “skinny” – but we should all have the same idea of fit. Eating healthier and focusing on better-for-you foods and exercises. Again, this could be different for all – but we can definitely agree on one thing.   FOOD!   Food is wonderful. Scrumptious. Decadent. Freeing. That’s it! Food is freeing!…

Things I’ll Miss About Winter + Apple Pie!

In good ‘ol Tejas, we experience the oddest strangest damn near psychotic weather. One day, there are tornadoes and flash floods, the next – it’s sunny and 85. Today was one of those days – you know, the type that makes you want to go for a 5 mile jog, then come home and sip sweet tea on your massive wrap-around porch? [Come on…I know I’m not the only one…

Dear Jerkwad, We Loathe You.

Valentine’s Day makes people do weird things (or insanely hurtful ones). So I’m told. I think this is a feeble excuse for jerks, arses, cheaters, players (…I could go on, but why give them more airtime?) to break hearts all over the darn place. I do not discriminate here. There are plenty of horrid people out there, men & women alike. Unfortunately, I know one of these dastardly persons and…

Semi-Snowed-In & Happy

The best thing about today? SNOW! In my book, it’s: God Snow Family & Coffee Snow is just about the most precious thing, ever. Soft, cold, beautiful. Growing up in deep south Texas, I rarely experienced snow. Instead of hitting the beaches with many of my friends on Spring Break – I flew to colder places to snow board and dance in the powder. Some might say it’s because I’m…

The Great Big Move

We are MOVING! Why? Because graduate school is not cheap, ya’ll! Being fiscally responsible means suffering a bit while you save for something greater. Thus, we shall move into a smaller apartment and try to get the most bang for our buck. In Dallas, that dollar doesn’t stretch nearly as much we hoped. Thanks, reality slap! Pros for the new digs: Closer to Starbucks…yes – this matters. Intramural-like Events (because,…

Bikini Waxing

Today I’ve eaten more Thai food than I care to admit. My new workout plan is about to get Dixie Chick serious. Fo’ Real, yo! A bestie and I decided to have our eyebrows waxed…isn’t this the way all good stories start? We met at the salon, and I was called back first. The beauty technician was nice enough, for being insanely quiet and yielding hot wax. Eeesh! So, I’m…
