Here’s a quick little reminder for you guys who are not aware of my sordid love affair with decadent chocolate cake and anything bathed in a creme. I mean, come ON! How are you not salivating?  You see, I have a real love and passion for food. I wouldn’t say I’m as adventurous as Andrew Zimmern, but I do…

Self-Care in Law School

  During our Fundamentals Week, which is basically a crash-course in law school etiquette and expectations, one professor took the time to explain self-care in a way I’d never heard. She introduced me to Spoon Theory. Ever heard of it? It is a great model to explain the use of energy and how to get more of it. The theory was written by Christine Miserandino. She used it to explain…

Law School – Remember to Breathe

Law school exams are terrifying. Maybe you are not of the same opinion, but I personally do not do well with uncertainty. Truly, I do not mind taking the exam.

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?

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!

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…
