Here’s What We Missed…..

I can’t believe I missed the whole month of October… my favorite month out of the year for all its beer cheer and fall colors! The one month of the year I get to gush about everything in fall tones. The one month I get to complain about stores putting Christmas decor up before Halloween is even over and horrific costumes as well as a few clever and awesome ones. The one month I get to drink fall beers till I costumecan’t taste the pumpkin anymore and take shameless selfies with my favorite brands. Good food, great weather, and the best holidays in the land; that is what I missed. I’m sorry.

BUT here is what y’all missed!

I dressed up as a green and pink monster… I even wore it to my office costume/chili contest! I didn’t win either, but I only participated in one so it serves me right. One of my coworkers had the brilliant idea to come as Count Von Count from Sesame Street. He won of course!

I coffeediscovered two new coffee shops that make fantastic cappuccinos and macchiatos! Serj Books and Ascension Coffee are fantastic places to go and eat and have just straight up great, authentic coffee.

I made it to ONLY one Oktoberfest. This was very disappointing to me since my plan had been to hit up at least 3 different fests.

My shameless beer selfie!

However, life can take you by surprise and I found myself with little time to go and oct beerdo much for almost the whole month. There is always next October to look forward to though! I always find myself taking selfies with food and beer in the fall. It’s just that time of year, I think….

We had a lovely birthday party for a dear family friend of Casey’s on a rooftop bar. I LOVE rooftop bars! The last one I went to was New York, New York and it was freezing yet wonderful. It was my best memory in NYC southsidedespite the chilling wind. I tripped over a couch trying to climb over it because I was catching up with Casey’s mom. I got to watch her trip right before I did and we both looked absolutely ridiculous, but it was hilarious! I digress. I loved this rooftop bar here in Dallas simply because it was different from your average uptown club or bar. It was cleaner and less noisy than most. Not nearly enough seating but…. I think when people “go out” they expect to stand most of the time. If they don’t (aka, Me), then1425578_10152834518359253_5975674370663165663_n they should probably change their approach to going out.

I got a new HAT!!!!!!!!! I have been dying to get a fedora just like this for

Its fedora time!

Its fedora time!

quite some time…. mostly just this last year. Still in terms of fashion, it has been forever. It’s just slightly too big, but I will probably wear it 5 out of the 7 days in the week. Just too perfect.

Last but not least…. my final beer pictures. I went to the grocery store the other night all excited about refilling my stock of beer with more blue moon pumpkin ale, because it is the best, only to find that they had already switched their fall beers to their Christmas ales!! I was devastated to say the least……

I look forward to them all year round and now, they are just gone… I do enjoy St. Arnold’s Christmas Ale, but it’s not the same as that good ol’ pumpkin seasonal fall beer.

I don’t have pictures as of yet but the future is bright! We are getting a husky puppy and potentially moving to Colorado in April. When I say potentially, there is not a doubt in my mind that it will happen. The dream will finally happen!

That is what you missed! Thanks for listening to my life update. Ciao bella gente!

Things You Should Do to Have a Good Morning and Sunshine Success

“Morning is wonderful. Its only drawback is that it comes at such an inconvenient time of day.” – Glen Cook, Sweet Silver Blues

“No! I’m not ready, this is still my first cup of coffee!”
Anthony Liccione

I was having trouble waking up this morning and so I needed a whole bunch of motivational quotes to keep me going. Here are some of my favorites! There are just so many I will try not to overload. Moral of the story, if your moving a little slower on this fine Tuesday, its okay because there is so much more to life than just THIS Tuesday. So get out and enjoy those hours in the day that you can.

“Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain… To feel freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.” – Kevyn Aucoin

“Waking up to a smell is a lot more satisfying than waking up to a noise. Instead of barging in uninvited and yanking you out into reality, smells enter your dreams with a silent knock and a polite “Excuse me?”
Adi Alsaid

“You cry and scream and you stomp your feet and you shout. You say, ‘You know what? I’m giving up, I don’t care.’ And then you go to bed and you wake up and its a brand new day, and you pick yourself back up again.” – Nicole Scherzinger

This is not my photo unfortunately, but it is beautiful.
