Life in General

I made a bet with myself. Because I'm turning 35 this year, I'm gonna try to lose 35 lbs by my birthday. If I do, I'm going to get myself a new car for my birthday. If I don't, I'll have to wait until next year for the car. I'm not going to post any lame thermometer type thing on the side of my blog. This is not going to ever be a weightloss blog. Just writing about what is going on with me right now. I hope to be cooking at least on the weekends and trying new stuff, which I want to post photos of. Next week I am keeping my parents' dogs. I hope to capture some cuteness there with Roxy, Romeo and Rascal. I have been knitting and crocheting and I do have some photos to post but its late and can wait until tomorrow. So for now I will leave you with a cute picture of a bunny, for Easter is coming. This photo is from Cute Overload.

SXSW posts are coming!

So the Sunday before SXSW, March 13th, there was a free show at the Mohawk, my favorite Austin live music venue. I saw Bare Wires, Thee Oh Sees, Mister Heavenly, and Ted Leo. I was really excited about seeing Ted Leo solo. I didn't get any pictures from this show, but here is the poster. If you haven't ever listened to Ted Leo you should check him out.

So I took it easy on Monday and actually went to work, had to rest up for the rest of the week. On Tuesday, March 15th, I went to a pre-SXSW party sponsored by Swamp at Klub Krucial:
Klub Krucial was dirty and the floor was covered with sticky carpet. What better place to see an awesome metal show. We saw Mammoth Grinder, The Roller, HOD, and Kylesa. My friend Jay captured these photos of Kylesa in the wild.

Had a really great time! Hopefully a Wednesday update will come tomorrow!
