Gosh – staying on top of documenting our coming-and-goings is so much easier if I just save up and write about it once a month. This could become a thing. New work website (Yay!) Celebrating new work website (Double yay!) New work podcast (so fun!) Houston Marathon Dallas Galloway End-of-Season Party Craft Beer Tour – […]
I swear – this blog isn’t all things cooking, though it feels that way at times. We’re able to do a lot more cooking at home (yay!) thanks to some big work projects moving from In Progress to Completed status. Plus I want to pull recipes from the blog to make our own family cookbook […]
Our Dallas Mavericks are having a terrible season. To be honest, they’ve had several terrible seasons in recent years, but this year is an especially terrible-no-good-very-bad type of terrible.

Work has been rocking this spring – both in workload and literally with music. First, Toyota Texas Music Revolution: Then Kevin Fowler downtown. This job is probably the most fun I’ve ever had.
Finally got around to taking a painting class. To get it done required girlfriends and wine. That’s not a bad thing, in my mind. Anyway, we celebrated Cathy’s birthday by being artsy. She’s artsy, so this fit. My goal was to paint this: This was my finished product. Not quite the same, but not horrible. […]
