The Brightest Lights in the House!

Green…red…yellow…flashing lights, Christmas trees, humongous wall murals, more bright lights and shrines to admire…oh my!shrine

We went to eat at Mi Tierra in San Antonio during our TSPRA conference. I really loved the atmosphere and the food. My co-workers not so much. LOL! I will definitely be back the next time I’m in town. If you are looking for something new and eclectic to see while in San Antonio, definitely give Mi Tierra a try.

Liquid Sunshine!

Our tree has lemons! It’s a great time of year for me. I get to start making lemonade. Even though they are a year round fruit, February is when the lemons are at one of their peaks (ready for pickin’). Then again in August. Yum!

Lemon

Tip: If you only want to use a little bit of juice from your lemon and don’t want to cut open the whole thing (like me) this is what you do. Roll the lemon, stick a toothpick through it, squeeze out the juice, put the toothpick back through hole, refrigerate and save for later.

If you want to make perfect lemonade go here. 🙂

Happy juicing!

RAW: Natural Born Artist

So, I received a call from someone who saw my cards on ETSY.  They asked me to be a RAW artist.  How cool is that?  I’m super excited to be a part of a community full of amazing local artists in different genres!

Check them out here.

If you want to support me and attend the event, go here and purchase a ticket for you and a friend.

Thanks and keep checking back for updates!

I Heart Bingo!

What??? I never thought I would say that. LOL! I went the other night with some good friends. Had a great time and can’t wait to go back. The only person with gray hair was the man calling out the numbers.  😉

If your in Houston on a Thursday night and want something fun to do, go to the SBJST Lodge 88. You won’t be disappointed. Just make sure you get there early.
