week in review

Is anybody else out there listening to Dolly Parton on Pandora? If you're not, ya need to be. I just heard the Judds, Kenny Rogers, Loretta, Tammy Wynette, … it's amazing. Trevor says I say "ah-mazing" all of the time and he's right, I do. Stick with what works. I rarely listen to the current country music playing out there, but there's just something about those old timers that I adore. Nashville in my blood. How can you not love you some lyrics like… "I like my lovin' done country style".

I've taken a bit of a blog reading hiatus lately. My biz partner, Currier, and I were just chatting about how blogs can kinda feel overwhelming sometime. Do you ever look at blogs and think oh my gosh, these folks are way cooler, more organized, craftier, prettier, and just generally more on top of it than me? I do and that's when I know it's time to step away, close the computer, and focus on whats happening right here in my life.
But, because I can't stay away for long, I have some finds to share…

Just when I thought Pinterest was the bees knees of it all, I discovered Instagram. Do y'all use it? You basically can follow your friends and see their camera pics they choose to share. I get to see regular pics of cousin Charlie and see what some of my blog buddies are up to. And this way I can share a ridiculous amount of silly pics with people who want to see the Moosh in action.
Food… I have been cooking it up lately. Lucky husband. I made BBQ Chicken + Tri-Color Slaw + Harriet's Cornbread + Banoffee Pie and wowed a small crowd with this menu. People say you shouldn't try a new recipe when you're having company, but when else are you going to go so much trouble? The only thing that didn't turn out was the pie, but I'm pretty sure it was my fault. The boys went back for seconds on the chicken, so I can really recommend it.

One more thing and then I'll get back to work. We got a babysitter last Saturday and spent the entire afternoon antiquing, lunching and just exploring the city. We hit the design district in Dallas which was very cool. Lot's of antique stores on Riverfront Blvd. White Elephant Antiques was great. What we were really looking for though was something with a bit more funk & country chic and less vintage. I suppose we have to get out of the metro area to find the cheap stuff. Anyone out there know of a spot? Anyway, we had the best time with our daytime date and ate lunch at Meddlesome Moth which was the best part of the day. Craft beers, cobb salad, and a BLT that about blew Trev's mind. We sat at the bar with some beer nerds which was hilarious and perfect.

  1. Michael and I would have so much fun with y'all. We love to eat...and drink GOOD beer!

  2. I get overwhelmed with blogs for sure- just social media in general sometimes. Have you heard about Dolly Parton's Imagination Library? I don't know if they have it in Dallas, but you could probably use your parents' address. It sends a free age-appropriate book every month to the Moosh! I just signed up Miss Priss. So excited.
