|Where's the birthday boy?|
|We went to the Voodoo Two, which has an awesome piano. And a good happy hour.|
|The book was set in Singapore, we needed Singapore Slings!|
|I forgot what kind of bread this was, but it was delicious.|
|Rice noodles! I ate around the shrimp.|
|I did not eat this shrimp.|
|Baked fish with veggies|
|The whole lovely spread.|
Saturday night after that awful loss I went to Cafe Degas for some yummy French food and wine to drown my sorrows.
|My companion had the escargots. I did not pack participate. I just couldn't.|
|I got the softshell crab. I was told there would be avocado.|
|There was hanger steak across the table. I did steal frites!|
|We had a lovely spread of sweet treats and finger sandwiches. And of course, tea!|

Hey y'all happy Friday! I am home again! It feels like forever even though I was home two weeks ago. I am linking up with Amanda for Friday Favorites and Tif/Katie/ Caitlin/Della for High Five for Friday! I know your week was short and I hope your weekend is long!
I have book club tonight! We read Crazy Rich Asians. I cannot wait to discuss is was so fascinating. Our friend Suneeta is hosting and doing a Southeast Asian spread. I am so excited! Have you read this book? It is so funny, so educational and a fast read, check it out!

My weekend got away from me and I forgot to do a recap post. The Dixie Chicks were great! They started off slow but jammed out and did some great covers. The place went wild when they played Goodbye Earl. I was sad they did not play anything but Wide Open Spaces from the first album. Of course some people apparently were offended, but hello, you were going to see the Dixie Chicks! You can find the setlist here. We had a great time!
Marilyn Hagerty is so cute and back at it again! If you don't know who she is, she is the Eatbeat Writer for the Grand Forks Herald in North Dakota. She went viral in 2012 with her review of Olive Garden. She truly is a little gem!
I received my Fall 2016 Box of Style in the mail yesterday! I just love this quarterly treat and it did not disappoint as usual! I cannot wait until it is warm enough to wear the cape! I will be packing some of it just in time for...another trip.
|The bracelet is coming with me as well as the lip gloss. Can't wait to use the tassel belt!|
I am heading to my former adopted hometown Austin for a visit this weekend! I am actually sick of traveling now, is that possible? I am excited to see my best friend Aimee; to see how much the city has changed in two and a half years since I last visited and get my Mexican food fix. But after this, I am not leaving my immediate metro area until December when I go to Napa and I am sticking to it!
Hope you had a good week! What are you up to this weekend? I hope you have a great one, filled with fun, friends, football or family. Or all of those things together!

|The pic was taken at my desk, not indicative of what is to come, but that is where the finished product was assembled. These two are a match made in heaven. |

I CANNOT GET ENOUGH OF THIS SONG. That's all. First time I have noticed the lyrics. So millennial. I can say that as a cusp Gen X'er.

Let's pick up the trip with the Sunday after the game that sucked...Oh and sorry, it is pic intensive.
