Weekend Ramblings

Argh, where did January go? I only posted once in January. And that didn’t really even count since it was just one Wordless Wednesday post. Remember when I rocked it in November? I need to get that mojo back.

I will catch you up on recent happenings though.

Austin Beerworks

I went to an event at the Austin Beerworks brewery. It was to celebrate the soon-to-be opening (and it’s now open) Whole Foods at the Domain. I had 2 of the Peacemaker beers & could have downed more but I was responsible. It’s their extra pale ale and that’s exactly what I was in the mood for.


I also recently had a birthday. I celebrated on my actual birthday with my family and had a big ass beer. Gawd, that reminds me that I should update my About page to show that I’m 35 now. Waaaah!!!! Although, I think I have the writing style of a 23 year old…which I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. Let’s just say good.


After my beer & wing consumption, we played poker on my birthday. I didn’t win. Even after my aunt & uncle gave me some chips after I went out the first AND second time, I still went out first. I guess I don’t know when to hold ’em and when to fold ’em. That’s a reference to a Kenny Rogers song for all you young punks out there.

The next night, I went out to Javelina on Rainey Street to spend my birthday with friends. I had a tasty tasty burger & sweet potato fries and a few Moscow Mules. It was a good time!

Yesterday, Jessica & I finally ventured out west for lunch at Pieous. We’d both heard great things about their pizza. We were not disappointed!! Although, I disappointed myself and forgot my phone at home, so no pictures. Check out Jessica’s Instagram to view the deliciousness.


I’d been so so so good and avoided Target shopping other than essentials. But yesterday, I needed to get dog food for Haley. And I needed socks. So….in walking from one department to the other, the housewares department called my name. Julie!! Buy us buy us!!

I’m in the process of house hunting. It partly seemed very silly to buy new decor for my mystery house. But it also made me feel excited. And it was on clearance. Purchases are justified if you slap a clearance sticker on the item.
