Thankful For Mom Friends

I hate awkward pauses. Especially ones where a table full of people are looking at me waiting for an answer and I got nothing.

So awkward.

Still nothing.

Thanksgiving break brings old friends around. Everyone is home for the holiday so it’s a great time to meet and catch up. Sitting at a bar we used to frequent often, I was having a great time with some of my old college friends and people I hung out with before I got married. I admit that after moving out of state right after the wedding, I hadn’t done a good job of keeping in touch with friends. So this was a fun night for me, several of these faces I hadn’t seen in years.

Pictures without the CoffeeandSweats watermark were taken by photographer James Edward, who was kind enough to let me use them for this post. Check out his talents here.

You know that moment when you have an event to attend but looking outside you see sheets of rain coming down? Well, when it’s the exclusive Cadillac Road to Table event that moment tells you to head out! Thankfully when we arrived at The Eberhard we were greeted with friendly smiles and big umbrellas. Cadillac had taken the weather into consideration and provided us with this extra service to get us in nice and dry.

Do’s & Don’ts for the State Fair of Texas with kids

Big Tex

The State Fair of Texas is here! I’m always excited to go to the Fair but this year I was a little apprehensive because it would be my first time attending with the kids. The last time I went to the State Fair I went on a weekend, rode a couple of roller coaster rides, ate almost every fried food there was and played games until the place closed down.
