Pick a door, any door…

After our gluttonous lunch yesterday we went for a walk around the block. In such a small uninhabited downtown there were so many beautiful doors and entryways. #365project #photoaday #doortoadventure

Day trippin’ to Corinth

What was supposed to be a weekend away, was whittled down to a fabulous lunch with a good girlfriend.  For my #365project and #photoaday, I took the baby along for the ride.  We had an amazing lunch at Smith in Corinth, MS.  Chef Russell Smith came out to see who was making all the ruckus, just to find two old ladies hassling one of his servers.  Everyone was amazing and the food was incredible.  I would never have ordered Captain Crunch french toast, but it was my favorite dish.

Smile & the world smiles with you

I’ve driven past these gates countless times in the last three years, but something tonight caught my eye. I parked and walked back. Snapping away, I saw the big smiley.

This is today and yesterday’s #365project #photoaday.

These cotton ball clouds were the view on my way to work the other morning. One of the fellas on the #365project said in Italy they have a saying that sheep in the sky carry buckets of rain. Sure enough, they dumped those buckets a few hours after I took this photo.

Fat Tuesday’s Baby

Today is Fat Tuesday.  A day of celebration, over indulgence, parades, and king cake.  While this festival has it origins in religion, folks now celebrate Mardi Gras and Fat Tuesday just because.  The baby is hidden in a king cake, and the person that finds it, has to host the party next year.  My coworker told me in Mexican tradition the finder of the baby has to make the tamales.

If you need to celebrate more, I made real Hurricanes and they were a hit!  Another New Orleans treat is barbecue shrimp and these aren’t the usual ole Bar-b-Q.

A punch in the head

A couple girlfriends and I threw a mac & cheese dinner party last night. We had 4 different mac & cheese dishes, wine, & punch. It all turned out quite tasty!

And like every successful party, the fire department was peripherally involved. I’m sad to report the lobster mac did not survive. Clearly this means a do-over!

Super simple & tasty cider punch

1/2 gallon fresh apple cider
1-2 cups pear infused vodka (I didn’t measure, but made to taste)
2 bottles prosecco
sliced pears to garnish

Cider Saturday

Spent a wonderful few hours at Long Road Cider enjoying a tasting and lunch.  Cider has been one of my favorite beverages and upon moving to Memphis was so sad to find there wasn’t any real cider and that most folks here had no idea what hard cider was.  Long Road opened in the last year, with their name a nod to the long journey for them to open. Thank goodness for LRC! #365project #photoaday @longroadcider

Coe has been feeling a little poor the last few days and Ginger is doing her darndest to help her feel better. Normally when a Ginger tries to curl up, Coe harrumphs and moves away. Today, she’s taking all the love & snuggles available. #365project #photoaday

Since I’m a day behind because of crazy life and crazy pets.  Here’s my photo from the day before.

Godzilla Descended

The #365project has me constantly looking around for the next day’s picture. At a super bowl gathering last night, one of the youngest guests dumped his bag of trucks onto the floor. The color and shapes caught my eye and I’d just sat down to get a few snap when I caught his eye. Godzilla swooped in and started moving everything about.
