John Vineyard: When I was younger

Digging this song from my friend JV! and for lack of better blogging skills I couldn't figure out how to post this audio file and so the hubz had to help me. So he put it to some video we had in the archives. Kind of fun…hope we didn't taint the song with video of the girls and a squirrel!

OMG it's 1,2,3,4 in the final!

Don't know the stats, but I can't believe that the top 4 men's are in the semi final of the U.S. Open. Bring on the weekend!

Digging Woolbridge etsy shop

We have had a couple of not so hot days, and it is making me all that much more ready for fall. And again it will be hotter than I'll get out, but I am still hanging onto that fall feeling. With that said I am really digging the etsy shop Woolbridge. Also, digging the vintage feeling of the photos too. Just looks so easy going.

Texas Hill Country Trip: Enchanted Rock

One morning my sis and I headed over towards Llano to hike up Enchanted Rock. We started out struggling, since it was so early, but if we didn't then it would have been too hot. In the end we had a blast and I took a ton of picts. Loved it!
saw this guy eating when we came in. now that i look again looks like he needs some more. so cute!
lets go!
we just did the summit trail
i thought this was the top. not even close :)
beautiful views
i guess if it wasn't so dry than there might be water in this hole
found a feather at the top
a cave that this nice man was telling us about. everyone was real friendly, hence the friendly state :)
getting hot but there was a nice breeze
pretty color and texture
looks like a cartoon dog

Texas Hill Country Trip: Hondos

Green Chili Chicken Enchiladas: so good!
a la Hondos: CROUCH, JOHN RUSSELL (1916-1976). John Russell (Hondo) Crouch, humorist, writer, owner and self-proclaimed mayor of Luckenbach, Texas, was born on December 4, 1916, in Hondo, Texas, to Ione and Harry Crouch, a telegraph operator for the Southern Pacific Railroad. Hondo Crouch was an All-American swimmer at the University of Texas, where he was awarded a degree in physical education in 1941. After training as a navigator in the Air Corps at Garner Field in 1942, he settled down to raise sheep, goats, and cattle near Fredericksburg. He was swimming coach at various Texas children's camps from the 1930s until the 1970s. In 1964 he was president of the Hall of Fame for UT athletes and in 1975 was influential in persuading the university to build the Texas Swim Center. From 1963 to 1975, under the pen name Peter Cedarstacker, Crouch wrote about 600 "Cedar Creek Clippings" for the Comfort News. Through his characters from the mythical town of Cedar Creek he satirized politics, government, ecology, deer hunters, social life, and everyday country problems and celebrations. In 1971 he bought Luckenbach, a small community established as an Indian trading post by German immigrant Albert Luckenbach in 1849. There Crouch presided as mayor over a population of three plus a single parking meter. As "clown prince" he brought to life the town's motto, "Everybody's Somebody in Luckenbach." He held zany celebrations, such as the Luckenbach World's Fair, the first Texas "women only" chili cook-off, Return of the Mud Daubers, and no-talent contests. Crouch participated in a Folklife Festival for Texas at the Smithsonian Institution in 1964. On July 4, 1976, Luckenbach received national attention for celebrating the Non-Buy Centennial, protesting the commercialization of the bicentennial of the Declaration of Independence. Crouch was a Republican. He was married for thirty years to Helen Ruth (Shatzie) Stieler, daughter of the 1945 "Goat King of the World," Adolf Stieler of Comfort, and they had four children. Crouch died of a heart attack on September 27, 1976, in Blanco.

Texas Hill Country Trip: Fredericksburg

This is the cool curiosity and home store called Red. They have modern, hand made, and vintage. I guess it is in an old Buick dealership, which was pretty cool.
These were a few picts that I took in their general store. They seem to have a lot of Christmas stuff up in the town, along with a bra, pantie, and deer clock isle.
 On the street or in the window.
 My awesome lunch at Bejas Grill. I know it is a mexican restaurant but this brat sounded too good to resist and it was so freaking good. That is cucumber pico on top!
 Thought this little red car was so fun going down Main Street.
Pasta Bella Italian Restaurant. We had really good local wine, the food was great, and the server was excellent!!!
 Fun signs

Penfield: classic lovin'

I have been crushing on Penfield for a while, but haven't taken the plunge on anything yet. I think that is about to change. I super love the Donestone sweatshirt. It's kind of equestrian, and now I just have to decide on a color. I have a gray obsession, but I love the camel too and then the black is definitely classic. I guess things are good if this is my toughest dilemma :) Also digging the Kasson Parka with the plaid interior lining and the great triangle pocket detail.

Hot Pink: a US Open fave!

Wow! I have never seen so much hot pink at one tournament. I mean Adidas is a big presence at the Open but Lotto and Kswiss are helping the pink factor. Even Sharapova's Nike day outfit has hot pink accents with lavender. Love that combo!
