1. I love going to the library to just browse for books and see what I can find. I usually end up with at least one book that’s worth reading:) This is a book that was not only worth reading, but was so good that the next book that I read was his first book, The Rule of Four! If you like Dan Brown’s historical/suspenseful style (The DaVinci Code), you’ll most likely enjoy The Fifth Gospel.
1. Our first llama sighting was four days into our trip. I was getting worried that maybe llamas weren’t as big a part of Peru as I thought! Really, I think people just don’t bring their llamas to town:)
I had to sneak a picture from across the street because otherwise I would have had to pay. #cheapskate
5. Camping this weekend:)
Sometimes when you have what feels like a hundred things to do with work and a hundred things to do around the house, it’s best to just leave it all, explore a state park, eat food that tastes like campfire, and sleep outdoors!
4. I spotted this box along my running route this week and knew exactly what it was!
Happy Friday! I hope that this week (and the last few weeks) has been a good one! The spring semester is always a busy one and it has proven to be a whirlwind this year…only four more weeks of classes and a week of finals left in this school year. Crazy.
Here are some pictures from the past two-ish months:)
1. Mr. Torres and I spent three days camping and hiking around in Big Bend National Park. Happiness.
2. We finally spent the time and effort to put in our raised bed! All of our plants were in the ground by April 1st:) Continue reading
Another name for this blog post could be How To Visit Louisiana During Mardi Gras And Stay Away From All The Crazies!
Mr. Torres and I headed to Louisiana a few weekends ago to spend some time with my Louisiana sister and take a little break from the normal weekend routine.
Little did we know that the weekend we planned to go down was the weekend before Mardi Gras! Fortunately, we were able to enjoy a day in New Orleans without experiencing the craziness that is associated with Louisiana during this time of year!
Here’s what we did:)
1.First stop…Angelo Brocato for a mid-morning snack.
This place has been around since 1905 and serves up some pretty delicious Italian treats! Continue reading
1. I made some goals for 2014 and did a great job on most of them….
- No competitive races- Success!
- Experience something that is distinctly Houston or big-city at least once per quarter- Let’s see…Houston Rodeo, Dynamo game, Rockets game, downtown NYE party, does visiting Galveston count?!? I think this one is a success:)
- Finish decorating the living room and dining room- 96% Success! There are two more things on my to-do list for the living room and one of them (LoveSac covers) was a Christmas gift from Mr. Torres (should be delivered soon)!
- Get a job- As of August, this one was a success!
1. I’m still taking too many sunrise/sky pics.
They’re just too beautiful.
1. I currently can’t put down this book.
These are some of the things that have brought so much joy into my life lately…
1. Five days spent with this sister!
Mr. Torres and I drove to Louisiana to visit for the weekend and then my little sis drove to Houston for work for a few days:)
In the middle of our time in Athens, we ventured out of the city and into some of the most beautiful countryside I have ever seen.
Our first stop was Delphi which was believed by the Greeks to be the center of the world.
The Temple and Oracle of Apollo were here and the rainy weather really added to the mystical feel.
