Taking Back My Twenties

Thoughts from a Thursday

Posted on Oct 17, 2013 | 11 comments

-I’m Manhattan bound for the big 2-8! Matt had business in NYC, so I’m meeting him there today for my birthday weekend. I think I’ve dreamed about a fall getaway in NYC since I was a little girl. I always visited friends during college summer and winter breaks and don’t think I’ve ever been in the fall!

-Is anyone still reading? I know my posts have been lackluster as of late. What can I say? My life was a bit more interesting when I was wedding-planning and honeymooning. Honestly, I’ve been doing a lot of sitting on ye old couch at night and then sleeping a lot. And I love it.

-It’s like the first cold day in Dallas, and I’m craving a long, chunky sweater.

-I’ve been having a lot more stomach issues and brain fog since moving to Dallas, so I gave up dairy for a bit. After weeks of cheese dreams, it seems to be helping the stomach but not the fog. The good news is that I’m now obsessed with cooking with coconut oil.

-Dairy aside, I’ve been in an ethnic food mood lately and have been loving TJ’s Indian Simmer Sauce. I bet you could simmer anything in that stuff and it would taste good.

-I’m very, very mad at the writers of Downton Abbey right now (just finished season 3).

-A snap from my last visit to the big apple. I’m sooo excited to see college friends tomorrow night! I am looking forward to being more of a tourist and less of a party animal on this visit though. New York tends to get the best of me.

    I’m still reading and enjoying your posts! I mentioned previously that I used to live in Dallas so I love seeing the places you are going and the new restaurants and bars that have opened since I left. Since you are craving ethnic food, have you been to Roti Grill for Indian food? I used to get take out from them at least once a week. So good!!

    And yeah – Downtown Abbey… those writers are VERY annoying. I’m halfway looking forward to it starting again…but wonder how many more people have to die..

    Still reading and excited to hear about your NY trip! I’m planning a trip there in December, so I’m hoping you’ll preview some good restaurants and beers for me ;)

    I’m still reading too – and thoroughly enjoying ‘visiting’ all the places that I hope to see in real life one day (I’ve always wanted to ‘do’ Texas, it’s just such a long way from the UK – it’s definitely pencilled in for our next Big Holiday).

    still reading and loving hearing about your life in dallas. keep the pictures and stories coming! if you get a chance, try a falafel place in NYC called taim in the west village — they also have the best smoothies ever.
