Top 5 Friday: Downtown SA Eats

Top 5 Friday: Downtown San Antonio Eats sheerheart.org

Late January, I jumped at an opportunity. February 1st, I changed jobs. Went from working in the rather-happening downtown San Antonio area to taking the back roads to my new job out in Helotes. Quite a bit of a change; traded in my slacks and heels for boots and jeans. As it turns out, I also had to say goodbye to all of my favorite downtown eateries. Over three years of being spoiled by great restaurants (most within walking distance) filled with variety, culture, flavor and scene. I knew I would…

Only in San Antonio

Viva Tacoland, San Antonio, Texas

Oh San Antonio, how happy you make me. While at the little sister’s basketball game last night, I happened to notice an odd picture in my news feed. Oddly enough, the picture of this wall was the only thing I could load in that gym. But I’m so thrilled I saw it. It had a note that for every post on Instagram with this featured and #ILoveTacos and #ILoveTacosSoMuch in the caption, $1 would be donated to San Antonio’s children charities. Not only do I love tacos and cool wall…

Fave Photo Friday: Edition No. 27

Fave Photo Friday: The Pearl Brewery San Antonio Texas

Of late, I have been in the Pearl Brewery area taking pictures for Dhruvi and her blog, Stilettos And Sequins. We’ve been meeting there around 7:30 in the mornings, before work, so she can post on her site twice a week or so. I’ve not only enjoyed the experience of taking pictures there, but the atmosphere is so perfect. In the mornings, it’s quiet and beautiful. Even through the fog, we’ve had to deal with the past couple of times. There are several places to grab coffee or breakfast. Hopefully…

25 for Twenty-five

In many ways, I am still a child at heart even though I have a full-time job, live on my own, buy my own groceries and so on like an adult. I find humor in the smallest of things and at enjoy the immaturity I can don when around my younger sisters. This past week, I had a birthday. Now I am now twenty-five, and I’m not sure what to think of it. A number doesn’t have to dictate your actions or opinions; however, with this being a milestone of sorts,…

Twelve Things Tuesday: 05/12/2015

Mom & Her Girls

So two days down, three more to go! Last weekend went by way, way too fast so this week has been a drag thus far. But I am extremely happy to get this done and posted on the right day! Let’s get this started!! ONE TODAY, marks 3 years since I graduated from my beloved university! Seriously, how in the world is it possible to have time feel like it has flown by, yet at the same time, college feels like yesterday. There are so many things I dearly miss about…

Fave Photo Friday: Edition No. 23

Edition 23: April 3, 2015

Woohoo! It’s Friday and I’m posting again for the 3rd time this week! Baby steps :) Anyhow, if you checked out yesterday’s post, you’ll recognize this picture. But I wanted to post it as my Fave Photo Friday, because there is just so many things I love about this picture. First off, the colors are so bold and vibrant. The bluer than blue sky last Friday made for such a perfect backdrop on so many of those pictures I took. Secondly, the angle I thought to take this photo with…

Juxtaposition

Beauty, Beauty On the Wall

Juxtaposition is precisely how to describe my life sometimes. Here, on Tuesday, I posted how dearly I love taking pictures of cattle and being out in the wide open spaces, and then below, you’ll find my most recent pictures of the concrete jungle that surrounds me from 8-5. Ok, concrete jungle is quite the overstatement. Actually my view is quite beautiful most days out of the year. Sometimes I find it hard to keep up with my photography habit. Not that I don’t love taking pictures, it has just, lately, it’s felt…

Fave Photo Friday: Edition No. 14

Edition 14: November 14, 2014

Happy Frida…… uh well I guess I’m a day late and a dollar short but I bring to you my fave photo of the week. This I actually took several months ago downtown on a little field trip with a coworker.  I absolutely love that we have at least one alley that is sort of iconic. I mean it literally is called Peacock Alley. :) And how awesome was my timing to have found this worker outside when I happened by. He was also gracious enough to, without being asked, sort…

Dear Mr. Johnson & Park,

First off, THANK YOU for coming to San Antonio! But really, ever since I left good ole College Station, there has been a void in my life. And that void would be live Texas Country music. Sure, there are some shows, but not near the amount as compared to College Station. It’s really almost a tragedy. A bit of an exaggeration, but live Texas Country, is usually an inexpensive form of entertainment that involves beer and a dance floor. If that’s not a perfect night out, I don’t know what…

At Thirteen: I was Reading in Church and She Was #6 on the Charts

tanya tucker

And to think I felt nervous standing up at the lectern in church reading to two hundred or so parishioners a couple of readings?!? Its marbles compared to what she accomplished at 13! “Who is she?” You may ask.  Well I am referring to the- Tanya Tucker, hailing from the great state of Texas. What an artist. At 13, she passed on the opportunity to record “The Happiest Girl in the Whole U.S.A.” in order to record “Delta Dawn.” I think this gamble worked out in her favor in the…
