Book Share and Farewell

I’m forgoing the usual cocktail submission to formally say goodbye to one of my favorite shows. Tonight is the series finale of 30 Rock. I started watching this hilarity in law school when I very badly needed to laugh and it has been a weekly companion since then. I heart Liz Lemon, liberal and all (and sometimes I fantasize that Jack is my real boss). It’s been a good run, TGS. You will be missed!


If you are not ready to say goodbye:

  1. Relive some of the greatness
  2. Give the gift of Liz Lemon
  3. Love the politics of it all
  4. Talk the talk of the Rock

Because of 30 Rock, I also just read Tina Fey’s autobiography, Bossypants, which was EXCELLENT. I read it on a trip and was doubled over laughing on the plane. I laughed out loud at least every other page. She is just so absurd. Break up the monotony and read it!

P.S. I love Pinterest and I love 30 Rock, but this is weird



Traveling Tuesdays: Chief World Explorer

A really good friend of mine is working for the up and coming travel site Jauntaroo, which is pretty awesome and getting better everyday. My favorite feature is their “Been There/Want to Go” buttons. Its a great way to keep track of your adventures and make a plan for that lengthy bucket list.  That’s not all – this spring they are selecting someone to be their Chief World Explorer for the next year making a whopping $100,000. I mean I like being an attorney, but getting paid to travel the world sounds WAY better. Check out the site and keep an eye on the Chief World Explorer offering set to roll out this Spring. Life’s too short. Get to exploring.

Thirsty Thursday: Colorado Bulldog

Until about 9pm yesterday I thought it was Thursday. I finally realized that I was a day ahead of myself, which means (a) it has been a seriously long week and (b) I’m ready for some weekend cocktails. Over the Christmas break my brother-in-law-to-be got me seriously hooked on the good ole’ Colorado Bulldog. Its a cold drink that warms you up – the perfect winter cocktail.

Bulldog - Silk-214

The Colorado Bulldog: Fill a tall 16 ounce glass 1/3 full of crushed ice. Pour in 1 jigger vodka and 1 jigger Kahlua. Fill to within 1 inch of the rim with Coke. Fill to within 1/2 inch with light cream. Stir to blend. (I use Diet Coke to cut down on the calories and I double the recipe so it fits in my Red Raider Tervis.)

Enjoy! Here’s to Friday!


I’m Baaack

Well hello. I felt like Cousin Eddie should get a little post-holiday love. Its been a rough couple of months, but there have been several diamonds in the rough that have kept me moving. We were witness to some of our best friends tying the knot, attended some birthday bashes and Christmas soirees, did a little fine dining, spent lots of good quality time with our families for the holidays and recharged a bit. 2013 is not promising to be an easy year, but the blog is sporting a new look thanks to my favorite graphic designer and I’m feeling energized and positive about what is in the pipeline. The house needs some sprucing, the friends need some attention and I’m needing a little creative outlet, so stay tuned for some of these posts and many more the next couple of months:

(1) The Frias Wedding Bash; (2) Michelle and Rob’s Beautiful Day; (3) A Little Dallas Dining Love; (4) Grey’s Very Own Circus; (5) Steamboat Music Fest 2013 and much much more.

P.S. Today is the one year anniversary of the blog. Thanks for reading!
