Love the Simple Life

Focusing on Finding Happiness in the Simple Things

The State of TV Shows

Anyone lately look at their tv with both adoration and disgust? Let’s face it, we in America spend a lot of time with our butts on the couch watching tv. If you’re like me and the hubby, you play on your phone while watching television. It’s really quite horrible. We’re not just staring googley eyedContinue reading “The State of TV Shows”

Aloo Out

My hubby, Sam, said to me yesterday afternoon, “get dressed, we’re going somewhere ( I was in my pajamas, don’t judge me).” We ended up at the Indian grocery store. He had very sweetly decided he was going to make me dinner, a new dish we had never tried. Yay! We had a few momentsContinue reading “Aloo Out”

Sneaky Squirrel!

A few days ago our tomato plants lay dying, so we decided to go ahead and pull them out. This left a large empty spot in our planter. A squirrel apparently took a liking to the spot as I saw him checking it out on several occasions. Well, as the hubby and I sat inContinue reading “Sneaky Squirrel!”

San Antonio

Amazingly, San Antonio is only about 90 minutes away from where I live, and yet in the seven years I have lived in Texas, I have only been there twice. That includes this past weekend. The hubby’s sister and brother-in-law were in town for work so we took a short drive down to visit them.Continue reading “San Antonio”

Rejoining the Gym

Whew! It’s about time! Now that we are vaccinated and we hope other people are too, we have decided to rejoin the gym. I’m still wearing a mask because I feel more comfortable being cautious, especially in a warm, enclosed space with people breathing heavily. There is probably nothing wrong, as the hubby has remindedContinue reading “Rejoining the Gym”

Shoes, Shoes, Shoes!

On the last day of my sister’s visit, we decided to go shoe shopping. Next to the shoe store was a running shop, so the hubby decided to tag along. Big mistake 😂. In the time that it took for Sam to buy two pairs of running sneakers, browse around REI and another store, myContinue reading “Shoes, Shoes, Shoes!”

Esther’s Follies

Esther’s Follies is an institution in Austin. It is sort of like a variety or vaudeville show. The theater is clearly a former storefront with large picture windows and the weirdest/coolest decorations. The show itself is made up of different skits. It is mostly a comedic musical of sorts based on politics and local/national news.Continue reading “Esther’s Follies”

Chinese Food, Yum!

We took my sister out to a Chinese restaurant the other night. No, not take out, and not an overly saucy Americanized version of Chinese food. Incredible and all organic Chinese food in a beautiful setting. We had traditional Shanghai soup dumplings which are amazing ( I am obsessed, but can only make at homeContinue reading “Chinese Food, Yum!”

Craft

There is a really cool place here in Austin called Craft. It is a crafter’s dream. All of the art supplies you could dream of and more, are super organized in large studio. The best part? You get to have fun, be creative, make a mess but don’t have to clean it up after!! TheContinue reading “Craft”
