The Past Few Days

This past weekend kicked off on Thursday night when Bryan and I drove to Little Rock to have dinner with The Kid and her parents. We ate at Bonefish, where I had the best Ahi Tuna that I have eaten in a long time. If Ahi is on the menu, there is a good chance that it will be what I order. One of my favorite things to do is have a glass of wine, chat and have a good time with people I love.

As I have mentioned before, I am not a huge music person (I leave that up to Em and Bryan), but one person that I have really wanted to see has been Justin Townes Earle. We had tickets to see him last summer in Mobile, but the beach house where we were staying flooded--that was when we unpacked bathing suits and repacked fleeces and headed to Colorado for a week.

Yes, I pushed my way to the front and could have taken a small leap and grabbed the man. I may have been close enough to touch his white shoes by the end of the gig. Harlem River Blues is the main track on his last album; he has a new one coming out soon. This is not my favorite video of it, but the sound is quality.

On Friday I had to go to Tulsa for a Kappa Trainer training weekend. Eight ladies met and stayed in a couple of home. A Kappa trainer travels the country, visiting different chapters and alumni associations, and educates them on a variety of topics. I met some amazing women this past weekend and had a wonderful time.

Since Saturday was St. Patty's Day, I incorporated a touch of green into my outfit from a scarf. I found this Tangerine Tango striped shirt at Old Navy last week on clearance.

We had a delicious dinner at a local Italian restaurant called Ti Amo. I ordered the special, which was stuffed orange roughy. Everything on our table looked and smelled amazing.

On the way home yesterday, Bryan stopped to fly-fish for a little while at a river about an hour away from my parents' house. Ivy sat on the bank beside me while I read and played word games on my Kindle.

I hope everyone had a nice weekend. I'm sure a lot of you are having fun right now on Spring Break trips. I can't wait to see and hear about them!


  1. You look so cute in your maxi! I just picked up some cute stripped shirts at the Jcrew outlet here. Looks like a fun road trip!

  2. I think it's so cute that you just hung out on the bank with pups while he fished!
