in the 80's, we had fun with our food...









don't drown your foooood,
in mayo, SALT, ketchup, or goo.
It's no fun to eat what you can't even see,
so don't drown your fooooood!

I could learn from this.

new & old: WINDY FREDA FALL '10







pictured above: a few pieces from WINDY FREDA's new fall 2010 collection


In a recent wave of feather accessories,
I must say that Windy Freda has some of the most UHmazing, most feminine hairpieces I've seen.
They also have some pretty 
ridiculous necklaces and lace collars- which you can see for yourself here.

There is a slight chance that I could be so partial to these pretty pieces given that designer Susannah Lipsey runs shop in good 'ol Marfa,TX.
-or it could also be that her 'lil sis just happens

Ither way, I am postive I am not the only one excited about W. Freda's new offerings.

;)

studs, studs, and mas sparkly studs...







tough stuff maybe, but definitly very, very pretty.

p.s. as I was "labeling" this post, I quickly had to remind myself how to spell 
e-n-v-i-r-o-n-m-e-n-t
Al Gore would be so dissapointed.

hot dog love: Sonoran's do it better...

Pictured above-delicious Sonoran hot dogs...

Via The Times“A ketchup-and-mustard hot dog is boring,” continued Ms. Murillo, a high school senior. “They’re not colorful enough. You’ve got to make them colorful, and pile on the stuff. The best hot dogs come from Sonora,” the Mexican state immediately to the south. “Everybody knows that.”

Apparently I've been missing out.  
I've seen plenty of billboards around town for James Coney Island's new Sonoran menu offerings. 
I guess I'll just have to taste and see for maself!

check out a Houston Press article about the Sonoran dog invasion here.

delicious.

It must be said that Ra Ra Riot, Girl Talk, Stars, Slim Thug w/ Bun B,
Flaming Lips and many other amazing bands started off another hot Houston summer just right.

Can't wait for next year!


Dear Nine by Design, I love you...

The Novogratz family-not pictured, the newest addition, baby Major

Is anyone else addicted to this show? I feel like I learn something new everything I watch.
They make me want to refurbish lots of old things, have lots of attractive babies, and make lots of money.

Looks easy enough, right?

getting fit should be more fun...


Sorry for the absence in posting this week. 
I had a case of what I'm calling the post memorial day lazies, but I think I'm cured now.
Speaking of the lazies, I've been trying to come up with more exciting ways to get into better shape.
My friend Ashley and I are starting a month long early morning boot camp next week 
-which I am very excited about btw,
but I still think I need a few extra toys to keep things fun at home.
I'm thinking about a pair of roller skates. 
Wouldn't that be fun?!

I found a pretty cute and cheap pair at Academy-only $35
Hope to pick them up before the weekend!


p.s. we got a grrreat deal on the boot camp via Groupon. I'm brand new at the whole groupon thing, but so far I am very impressed!
