What we’re eating this week. . .
We are heading to Austin today and I could not be more excited about the places we are going to eat!
If the wait is too long at Moonshine
Juan In A Million
Because, breakfast tacos are a Texas staple
What I’m reminiscing about. . .
When Brandon and I had our first date at Moonshine in Austin the wait for a table was SO LONG that we almost left to get Taco Cabana because I was STARVING! When they finally brought us to our table (2 hours later) they gave us popcorn, which I began to shovel into my mouth (classy, I know) until Brandon took it away so I wouldn’t spoil my dinner. Hopefully our wait is not as long as last time, or the popcorn massacre might be recreated.
What I’m loving. . .
This sunrise that I woke up to yesterday morning. Texas, you are BEAUTIFUL! #nofilterneeded
What we’ve been up to. . .
We have been working non-stop to turn our house into a home. I have to constantly remind myself that Rome wasn’t built in a day. My goal is to have everything done by January.
What I’m dreading. . .
At my job, a few of us have signed up to play fantasy football. The weeks that I win are a lot of fun because I can use some of my smack talk skills, but the weeks I lose are pretty rough. As of right now, I’m in 6th place with a record of 5-6. Let’s hope I win this week, because I really want to clinch a playoff spot.
What I’m working on. . .
Painting furniture. I’m in love with how my buffet is looking, but it seriously sucks in the paint. I think I’m on coat number 3 or 4 but it’s finally the color I want. On Sunday, I have to finish the legs, and the details. Then it can move into the house. I can’t wait to finish that room!
What I’m excited about. . .
This is the first Christmas in our house and I can’t wait to decorate it. I love how cozy a house feels when the Christmas lights are on, a balsam fir candle is lit and a Christmas movie is on.
What I’m watching/reading. . .
I decided to rewatch Gossip Girl on netflix. Maybe I’m just old, but how were they able to get away with drinking at all of these bars?? I’m 31, and still get id’ed at most places.
What I’m listening to. . .
I love me some Josh Abbott.
What I’m wearing. . .
This top was love at first sight! For me, its a little too short to wear it as a dress, so I wear it with black skinnies and booties. I’m wearing it to dinner tonight, so I’ll take a real outfit photo so y’all can see what I’m taking about.
What I’m doing this weekend. . .
What I’m looking forward to next month. . .
Our Christmas trip to New York and Rhode Island. We will spend Saturday night celebrating my best friend‘s recent return back to New York with my best girls from my hometown. Then on Sunday, we will head into the city to experience how magical the city is during Christmas time. On Monday, we will head to my parent’s house in Rhode Island. I couldn’t have asked for a better Christmas and better people to spend it with. I’m truly blessed that after 20+ years, I still have the same girlfriends who mean so much to me.
What else is new. . .
