" If you trust your rebel heart, ride into battle... Don't be afraid, take the road less traveled... wear out your boots and kick up the gravel... Don't be afriad, take the roead less traveled on... oh, ooh-whoa, oh, ooh-whoa take the road less traveled on. "The lyrics of Lauren Alaina's song haven't left my ears all summer as I've traipsed around Texan generally bein' a rambler. This summer has been one of my favorites in a log time. All the general explorin' and Texas sun that has kissed my face has been more than enough to last a lifetime. Guess, it's a good thing I live in the great state and don't plan on leavin' anytime soon.
It's been forever and a Texas moons since I've done one of these but here ya go. A few things I've been lovin' here Down South.
Photos: Brunch. I am a Dallas Lady after all. This beauty comes from my new favorite Deep Ellum spot Anvil Pub. And if you ever need other Brunch recommendations I got ya.... right here // Glazed Donut Works in Deep Ellum /// Magnolia Silos in Waco Texas. Finally took a day trip out to Waco to see what Ms. Joanna and Chip have been gettin' themselves into and I am thoroughly impressed with how they are revitalizin' that town /// Y'all already know my big claim to fame is the #TravelinTexan bucket list. Well "Haven't had a kolache when you go through west, never heard of The Larry Joe Taylor Fest, Think polished pop country crap sounds the best, then you ain't met my Texas yet" /// Did y'all ever read PART 2 of The #TravelinTexan bucket list... well. Kruez BBQ is not only a must but on it. Plus, It's nice when you don't wanna wait for Franklin's and around the corner from Smitty's which is also a bucket list contender.
Current Obession: Lean Pockets.. I know I know but really they are. I've eaten Hot Pockets for years and most of last school year it was all I ate in my classroom. Students would come in or I would be walkin' down the hall carryin' a hot pocket. Other staff and teachers would smh at me. I just love all the cheese. Well, now that Lean Pockets e has all these healthier version with real cheese I am soo game. Gotta counter act all that unhealthy sweet tea I drink. Plus ain't nobody got time to be hangry. Like for Texas y'all. I ain't got time for that. Between tryin' to be The #TravelinTexan in between that 9-5 I just don't. And I really like cheese. No seriously it's a problem. As a kid Daddy always got onto me cause I was always eatin' the cheese in the house and then there was never any to cook with or make sandwiches.
Thought of the Moment:
The Olympics.. .like how why. I would love to get in the mind of some of those athletes and see what compels them. Especially the ones from the smaller countries where they do not have a precedent set.
So now I'm askin' yall. Tell me all about your summer. Any good trips local or far away. I have much more to share but for today that's enough. Not go get ya some Lean Pocket coupons and let's be frans. No, really it's a link to a coupon cause there is no shame in my game and there shouldn't be any in yours either. Ready. Set. Go.
