The San Jose.

This is a beautiful hotel in Austin that N. and I would love to stay at sometime. Maybe someday we will.

Highlights of the season.

Lights a the Pedernales Electric Cooperative in Johnson City, Texas. It was very pretty.

Candy from the previously mentioned Whole Foods. From clockwise from top left, we have: Marzipan, a green tea truffle, vodka orange truffle, salted dark-chocolate covered caramel, basil truffle, and another salted dark-chocolate truffle...they're really good.

One of my favorite places in Austin, TX.

The headquarters for Whole Foods.

This is N.'s brother takin' a bite.

Our Duty.

My cousin graduated from the University of Missouri on Saturday, with a psychology degree.
N. and I made t-shirts featuring his nick-names, wore these ridiculous outfits, and embarrassed him as much as we could.

It was a draw.

Saw Nothing Like the Holidays today. Very different movie from Four Christmases, and I wouldn't really call it funny. Good, though. I recommend it, but more as a bitter-sweet, melancholic Christmas story, rather than a feel-good comedy.

We start traveling tomorrow so posting will be spotty.
Sorry, Brian and Miles. I do think of you. ;-)

The Movies.

Saw Four Christmases today. Cute--pretty over the top. N. and I have bet about which new holiday film, (Four Christmases v. Nothing Like the Holidays) will be funnier. Haven't seen the second one yet, which is my pick, but I think I'm in a good position to win this one.

Next Christmas Gift.

Giant cupcake cookie jar from FruitFlyPie on Etsy.

Cooking Cornbread.

I like the drama of the harsh oven light. It makes the cornbread look so serious.
Tried to take a picture of the chili that went with this cornbread, but N. informed that while it tasted good, it sort of looked like dog food.

Warm tootsies!

Got my first Christmas present from N. today; these comfy slippers from CaitiJo on Etsy.
They make me feel like Peter Pan!

Don't let the cobwebs fool you.

When I'm gone at night, these little army men obviously go hunting for bugs. They keep showing up on the window sill in my studio.

Nothing special, but...

there used to be a hole there in our kitchen, so I'm pretty happy to see this.

This is the ceiling of a truly creepy parking garage. This is also what I love about pictures, because now this creepy parking garage looks mysterious and interesting. Frames matter.

Glass sale.

Had the glass student sale this week at Kent. I got these two wine glasses--I consider them a male and female set.
