cold and wet outside. day-long thunderstorm with flashes of lightning.

busying myself with chores in low light and pumpkin & baking spice scented candles, perfectly paired with music by the high highs

inadvertently continuing the candle trend…

discovered kentucky for kentucky via instagram today. don’t get me wrong – i’m as proud a texan as these kentuckians are to be kentuckians, but i must say we seem to sit on the same side of the table when it comes to our colloquialisms & what’s on our plates.


the ya’ll sweatshirt – $50.00

nokia should have boldly gone…

i cannot believe i only just discovered the existence of Nokia‘s attempt at a Star Trek Communicator cell phone!

i’m aware of apps (or attempts at apps) that turn your existing cell phone interface into something communicator-reminiscent, but this is so much better; it’s a shame Nokia never put these into production…

white linen night in the heights – 2013.

i’m so glad i stumbled across news about white linen night in the heights, and doubly pleased to find out my friend julie was an event veteran!

with her as my guide, she and two additional friends of mine, michelle + justin, sashayed our way up and down white oak dr in the houston heights. we perused art, imbibed, and sampled home-made treats, including some very tasty BBQ courtesy of newly minted oak leaf smokehouse.

a great crowd and good food made for a grand ‘ol time.

(…once again, apologies for the reliance on a cell phone camera!)

houston restaurant week – 2013.

houstonians, shine your silver.

yesterday marked day 1 of the 11th annual Houston Restaurant Weeks – since it’s inception in 2003, local area restaurants have dedicated a week to donating a portion of their profits to the Houston Food Bank (as well as the Montgomery County and Galveston Food Banks this year).

This year, the city-wide charity dining event is from August 1 through September 2, 2013; you can find a list if participating restaurants or search by menu, cuisine, neighborhood, or even meal (ex. breakfast) via the Houston Restaurant Weeks main site.

Here’s how it works:



according to a KUHF news radio excerpt i heard, Brian Greene, CEO of the Houston Food Bank stated, “There’s over 170 restaurants that are participating and most of them are doing a $35 prix fixe [price fixed] three-course menu, some of them have a $45 dollar version and the food bank gets $5 or $7 of that. So you get a great dinner. So this is basically Houston’s best restaurants showing off.”

Houston Restaurant Weeks used to be only a week long when it first started in ’03, and raised $5,000. Last year, it managed to raise $1.2 million for the Houston Food Bank – here’s to record-breaking and full bellies for everyone!
