For Justin's birthday we finally made it out to The Stockyards for brunch! Suzie, do you remember we saw this on a Food Network show when you were here one time and we all thought, "Wow, we've gotta go there!" Yes, I had the chicken and waffles and wow, it was amazing. They add some red pepper heat to the syrup which brought it all together beautifully. Justin as a bit embarrassed to order the "dirty bird" but wow, it was amazing - a waffle, some roasted chicken, a filled-with-sausage sausage gravy and topped with an perfectly over-easy egg. Rich, rich, rich! And that's just how we started the celebrations! It was a great day all around.
After being super happy with having a capsule wardrobe throughout the summer, I decided to do it all again for the fall. Of course I had a lot of blue, black and white in the mix but I was suprized at a fair amount of both orange and purple. Okay, maybe I was just surprized at the purple. All that being said, I'm more focused on being able to be comfortable than matching. I hope this season goes just as well as summer did!
What a crazy-weather-weekend! We knew we were in for rain (finally) but had no idea that there was going to be a wind storm on top of it. Hundreds of thousands of people lost power. Luckily we were fine. We seem to be in a low impact area which rocked for us but many people were not as lucky, including Marina, Shannon. Luckily Gubby our Garden Gnome did just fine. I loved having the windows open and let the winds of change in and clear out old bad energy, I have to admit. I have always been a bit of a storm crow that way.
