Life Twenties

I had a fabulous birthday weekend, and now it’s back to normal life as a thirty-year-old! I didn’t take too many pictures, but snagged a few from friends’ phones. Matt and I picked up these fun number balloons and the cake (!) on Saturday morning, and then I met my friend Liz for a mimosa and a blow-out. We started with some day-drinking at the patio of Henry’s Majestic and then had an intimate dinner of about 20 at Origin…

Amazing Restaurants Life Ramblings Twenties

Current obsession edition: 1. I go through a chip and hummus combo every few weeks – right now it’s these pumpkin crisps with jalapeño and cilantro Hope Hummus.    2. I got a new iPod after my nano from college stopped keeping a charge. It was a tiny one that couldn’t hold all of my songs at once. I put a bunch of old country music on the new one and I’m enjoying driving around with the windows, down pretending…

Loved it! -We…

It’s been both wonderful and challenging to create my role – I have so much flexibility yet there are so many questions and things to figure out along the way. I’m really trying to get some organizational systems in place to make my job easier down the road. Simple things like trying to figure out how I want to organize my spreadsheets of students and if I want…

It’s a short week for me because I’m heading to Baltimore to visit my grandma tomorrow! After that, I’m traveling home to NC for a wedding.

Gosh I love Dallas. Now that the weather is warm, I’ve been taking more walks and soaking in the sunshine. Last night, I had the opportunity to walk downtown to see Beauty and the Beast!

If you aren’t familiar with ScoreBig, the site offers tickets for sports, concerts, theater, Broadway, family shows, and attractions. I found the website…

My friend Emily was our host for the weekend and she did an amazing job planning everything and getting us on…
