Flight Delays and Talking Squirrels

Sunday is always the worst day of the week for me.  It’s my time to start freaking out about the upcoming 7 days for no apparent reason.  If there’s one thing I’m good at, it’s freaking out.

Today, we get to add “flight delay” to the normal Sunday Syndrome, and throw in a short layover for a connecting flight I’d prefer not to miss.


letpretendthisneverhappened31But, in an effort to put a positive spin on the unfortunate and uninteresting turn of events, I have a great book to keep me company: Jenny Lawson’s Let’s Pretend this Never Happened.  Definitely worth checking out if you’re into sarcastic, irreverent, self-deprecating wit.  Or talking squirrels. Or paralyzing anxiety disorders.  All are featured prominently.   Take a peek at her blog.  Love her.


Pan Dulce

There are plenty of things to love about Mexican culture.  But one of the best has got to be the bakeries.


Cousin Novara found her wedding dress yesterday.  Woot!  So, of course we had to celebrate.  Right after the bridal place, we shot on over to El Bolillo Bakery in Houston to pick up two bags of  tasty treats… Mexican wedding cookies, empanadas, and my fav… pan dulce.  (And of course, all of this for a whopping nine bucks.  I love Mexican bakeries.)

Brought me back to when we went on grade school fields trips to Lopez Bakery on Mitchell Street in Milwaukee.  Senora Trojan hooked us up with a private tour of the place and all the galletas we could eat.  They were so good and crumbly…. hot pink crumbs of sugar would be stuck to our cheeks on the bus ride home.  Yum yum yum.

Whether you’re in the Midwest, or in the great “nation” of Texas… find yourself a Mexican bakery and dig in.
