These Boots Were Made For Stomping

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

A fun “fall” day in early December.  Tobin wouldn’t go near the leaves with his sneakers on.  But with his boots, he was ready for some stomping!  In fact, I believe he’s worn his boots every day since.

Season’s Greetings

Trailer Feast

Friday, November 11th, 2011

While in Austin with my mom, we stopped by the Gypsy Picnic, a trailer food festival.  We joined up with my friends Chris and Jennifer for a lunchtime feast.  I had been to the Oakland version, Eat Real, and thoroughly enjoyed it.  This one was equally as great and cheaper.  😉  I had the most ridiculous dessert donut (with icing and peach jam), crispy thai chicken, a fried pierogi, a chicken doner kebab, a gourmet hot dog, and a strawberry basil smoothie.  Yum, yum, yum!!
