Fall is here... Finally!

Here in South Louisiana, fall seems to come alot later. Something about wearing sundresses to a football game in October just doesnt give the "crisp, cider air" feeling that everyone else seems to get. But it finally came in the past couple of weeks and it REALLY came over the weekend in my house!

Halloween treats for some people at our home office in Washington DC

First fire in the fireplace of the season adorned by a festive mantle

The pumpkins that "yours truly" and I carved while the puppy got away with 4 pounds of pumpkin guts and countless seeds.

Happy Fall everyone!

Potatoes and Asparagus

Greetings from North Carolina! I am currently in an airport drinking a $9 beer during my layover. I have been in Washington DC for the past week for a conference for work. Great conference, exciting things coming from the company, motivating motivational speakers, a week with good friends, a few a lot of drinks and even more potatoes and asparagus. This convention center managed to incorporate potatoes and asparagus of every kind into every meal... breakfast included.

asparagus with this brown sauce stuff, potatoes with cheeses I have never heard of, sweet potatoes turned into pasta (true story), asparagus salad (whatever that is) and so many more to mention.

see.... I'm a girl raised by a Texan father and a Southern mother. If we eat potatoes they are mashed and paired with a stick of butter, a pint of buttermilk and enough sodium to make Dr. Oz faint. Asparagus... that is diet food- not a delicatessen. Needless to say- I am craving "american food".

But like I said, all in all good week but as always- ready to be home.

As I leave you- I have to say
GO CARDS. For all of those going to the game- let us cheers our $9 beers and for god sakes- bring home a winner!

Until next time...

Hello there... me again.

Soo... I really failed at blogging last time. Like reallly bad. But I'm back and I promise will try to be better this time!

A lot has happened in these neck of the woods. Here's a quick snapshot of the past 6 months!

Stood by a dear friend as she said "I do" to a wonderful man

Celebrated a very special 1st birthday

Got a new job and moved here to be with "yours truly"

Stood by another dear friend as she said "I do" to a wonderful man

Became a puppy parent to this little soon to be huge boy!

Add witnessing a few more "I do's", baby showers, visits from friends and family in the Big Easy, road trips/plane rides to and from St. Louis, Lafayette and beyond and you my friend have just been a part of my whirlwind of a year. I hope you had as much fun as I did!

Until next time...lets hope its a lot sooner this time around!
