#FridayFinds - Thai

This is another favorite of ours...
But I haven't posted about it earlier, because I kept forgetting to take pictures!

Meet Rose Thai:
Funny that two of the Asian Restaurants we like have "Rose" in their names...

They have a house salad that comes with our combo... Lettuce and a ginger-type dressing. MBB doesn't care for it - so I get two!

I'm not sure that they like us too much though - we are one of those who find what we like and "makes it better".  We liked the noodles on that dish and the sauce on the other...
And well, yep, I get "N2. with small noodles":

And I like it like that!

Namaste.

Retrospective

I am at a place where I need to stop and just be retrospective.

On one of my recent trips, I was surprised and shocked to win an award. 
An award for all of the hard work I have put in the last four years. 
Yes, the big T pays me to do it, but I enjoy doing it...
And now someone is publicly announcing that they think I do it well.

I never aimed for this award...
I never knew that I wanted it...
Until I got it.

Suddenly, it almost felt like a weight was lifted off of my shoulders...
Almost like this was a huge check on the bucket list...
But I really didn't realize that it was on the bucket list...
And it felt good.

I am beginning to soul search to see if I can make more of an impact on my own.
Cause I won't be doing this forever at the Big T, but I may want to do it forever...

Namaste.

Being A Woman...

...sucks some days.

This is one of those days...

No - I don't want to talk about "what is bothering me"...
No - I don't want to do anything productive...
No - I don't want to get anywhere near a scale after my date with chocolate...
And bagels...

And tomorrow, I have to get on an airplane, put on a cocktail dress/heals and play nice.
Good thing I like my paycheck.

Namaste.

#FridayFinds - While Traveling

While I was Dallas last month, a group of us went to Kenny's Wood Fired Grill.
Everything looked yummy, so I snapped as many pictures as I could.


 Bread and Brie Cheese Dip:

My "quarter" wedge salad (I asked for a half wedge):

 I had a crab cake and brussel sprouts:


Here were some other plates.  I know the second one is chicken, but not sure on the other two.
A non-photographed plate was salmon.  I got to taste and it was wonderful!



Namaste.

A Breather...

Life has been crazy...
I long for the days where only one thing was crazy at a time.
I am taking a breather from getting stuff done around the house and getting ready for the next trip to stop in for a few moments.

I have posted all of my creations, so it is back to posting them as I make them...
I have posted all of the places that we found to eat around town...
I do have one travel restaurant that I'll share this Friday.

I am now in travel season...
MBB is working on unpacking the last of the boxes...
We got in some visits to family members and need to do some more soon...
We are (crossing fingers) about to close the chapter on selling the house in Kentucky.

I will try to get some creativity back and keep up with the posting...
But I make no promises until travel season eases up!

Namaste.

#FridayFinds - More Mexican

Hard to believe that MBB's favorite restaurant is Olive Garden...
Why?
Because of the amount of Mexican food that he eats.

We tried another Mexican restaurant.
The problem is that MBB tried "something new" and not his typical burrito.
He was not happy.

I thought the food was good, so I may talk him into trying it again... Not sure (I'm not that big of a Mexican fan that I want three Mexican restaurants to choice from).

The chorizo cheese dip was excellent. 
They definitely did not dump all of the chorizo grease into the cheese!  

MBB tried a sampler type platter (it was huge - he put his hand in to give perspective):

I got my typical chicken and chorizo...
No tortillas, so that helps with the calories, but still not diet friendly.

Namaste.

#CraftyTuesday - Caught Up!

This is the last quilt from 2016 that I didn't have posted...
This was for a Kentucky friend and her first grandson.

The entire family are big UK fans... So I wasn't surprised when Blue (and Gray) was a nursery color.  I didn't make it a UK blanket - but it won't clash if his room evolves from nursery to UK in the future.



Namaste.

#FridayFinds - Happy Rose Buffet

Sometimes, when you have three little mouths to feed, it is better to go to a buffet.
If they are feeling picky, it is much easier to get them to eat.

Honestly, we have struggled to find Chinese Buffets in our new area.
The one we found close to home was not good at all (think 1 star, and that's being nice).

We headed south a bit to Holland and finally found a good buffet!

This will be a repeat for us... but not too often.
Diets and Buffets do not mix.

Namaste.

WOW!

The last two weeks have just passed by in a blur...
And I don't see it stopping anytime soon.

I was in Dallas, then San Antonio...
We finally had Christmas and Easter in the same weekend...

Family drama...
Family memories...
Different family...

Work has exploded - projects and traveling...
I've taken pictures to blog and then never find the time to post.
Since I'll be in Indianapolis, Columbus and Nashville soon - it will take some fancy scheduling to get it all straight and figured out.

But never fear!
I will prevail...
Eventually.


Namaste.

#CraftyTuesday - Another to TX

And the second to make it to Texas in 2016 was for the same dear friend from last week - her new, and only, granddaughter.

I am really happy with how this design turned out...
It may have started my attraction to dark pink / black combinations...



Namaste.
