Austin is full of food trucks- gourmet, trashy/greasy. You name we've got in a food truck. One of my favorite places to get sushi is in a little silver airstream. We even have a HUGE food truck festival!

Your pot holder is so adorable! I did the same thing and whipped out four throw pillows for the couch yesterday, without a plan, at the spur of the moment, and I couldn't be more pleased. It was so fun!

Beautiful! We got about an inch of snow here today, which occupied my kids for seven hours straight!

Hot damn, woman! You're quite a talented artist! I've been making a whole lot of nuthin' lately.

Valentine decorations are so cute and cheerful! I just don't seem to have it in me this year!

I love that dress! I, too, love jersey wrap dresses. They're perfect for school. Where do you get your beautiful jersey prints? Do you have to use a serger to make such loveliness?

I wish I would do more of that. The recording of the everyday moments. Sounds like a perfect morning.

A snowy beach has never occurred to me before, but it does sound like the perfect place spend New Year's Day. Happy 2011!

Well that sucks because aside from Dani (who is my real-life BFF) this is my favorite blog. You're so damn funny and down-to-earth truthful and insightful. I completely get the inability to keep up. I've let mine go for a month or so. I've been ignoring my Reader, too, and I'm loving it. It's not so much that I'm able to get so much more done, but I don't feel that one more thing hanging over my head all the time. So, good luck to you and your awesome brood. Hope to see you pop up somewhere again down the road. Peace.

That dress is adorable! I wish I would try sewing myself some clothes, but I'm quite scared of patterns still. What weight of cotton is that?

That skillet cake looks right up my alley. I love nectarines and plums, too. Much more than peaches. And that book cracks me up! I found a little floppy recipe book at a thrift store a couple years ago that apparently came with Spry's shortening. I die laughing at it every time I look at it. Very similar, yet it was actually published in the 50s to be truly helpful. The storing of grease grosses me out. Not the eating of it part, though.

Oooohhhh. I do love glitter glue. And letting my kids have at it with the glitter glue doesn't frighten me like letting them use the glitter does.

Love that pic of Ava. I haven't been very interested in doing much lately either. It is the heat. But I still love summer, only because I love lazing around in the sun by water and I love that this is the time when I get to be at home the most. I'm so sad that it's almost over, but very much looking forward to cooler temps. Even if I have to wait two more months.

I started to do it, too, but I was in a very boring meeting all day in a very boring room, so I gave up. There's always next month. Your pics are way better than mine were. And I agree with Amy about those adorable shoes. Too cute!

Gorgeous photos. Picking and eating all that fresh fruit must have been amazing. That's something I've always wanted to do, but, oddly enough, never have.
LOVE Kevin Henkes! I just got a mouse for my classroom and named her Chrysanthemum.

Damn hurricanes. What beach is that? It's beautiful. Wednesday seems unreasonably early for school to be starting. I hope they got out of school way early!

Greece! I want to go to Greece for an extended amount of time, like a month or two.

No advice as I've never made one, but I love that title. It fits me perfectly. This is on my to do list, too. Good luck!

It is quite adorable. I used to have a cat that did that, too.

That's fantastic! Max still hasn't quite mastered it yet, but he's very close. We really should work on it more often, but it's so damn hot right now.

I LOVE time at home by myself. Crave it, actually. I am an only child, after all. And I'm going to get three and a half delicious days at home alone next week. Woot!

Whoa! That IS the mother load! I'm quite jealous, too. And to think I was pleased with the measly two that I found last week.
