Catch the Moment, Weeks 21-23

Each day in 2014, I am taking a photo. There is no telling what the photo will be or where the “inspiration” will come from. All photos are taken either with my Nikon D5100 or the iPhone (for those times on the go). Come back each Friday for a complete compilation of the past seven days and link to join / view others as part of the 365 projects!

Let’s just take the elephant out of the room and say I’m way behind on this. I fell off the wagon and the wagon drove off. Obviously, I haven’t been taking a photo everyday so I’ll just fill you in on some of the stuff that’s been going on. Not going to lie… these may all be with my phone. Get ready anyway, living is exciting!

I think this was the first band I ever saw in Texas and eight years later they’re still one of my favorites. Velvet Love Box – one of the best cover bands you’ll ever see. Ok, who are we kidding… the best cover band you’ll ever see!

The Leavitt Pavilion in Arlington holds free concerts outside at the park from May until September. It’s an incredible opportunity for the community! On this night, we sat in the rain for Charla Corn and Cody Canada and The Departed. Soaked. Do you need reminding of how hard it is to take wet jeans off? Let’s just say it’s a good thing I didn’t have to use the facilities while I was there!

I headed down to Austin to meet up with old friends, spend some time on Lake Austin and go camping. Made new friends and oh hey, saw a little fire dancing.

One of the best beer labels I’ve seen! If you are in Fort Worth – find yourself at the Bearded Lady. It’s greatness!

Catch the Moment, Week 20

Each day in 2014, I am taking a photo. There is no telling what the photo will be or where the “inspiration” will come from. All photos are taken either with my Nikon D5100 or the iPhone (for those times on the go). Come back each Friday for a complete compilation of the past seven days and link to join / view others as part of the 365 projects!

This week: Well, forgive me. I don’t have a lot for you but from what I do have for you, I could tell countless stories! That’s the flip side of this entire deal. There’s lots of stories coming! Please come back, we’ll be talking about steaks, BBQ, dance halls, taxidermy, horses and everything that is greatness!

Day 135/365: May 15, 2014 I skipped this day in preparation of the weekend. Eeek.

Day 136/365: May 16, 2014
This has to be my favorite beverage ever – Sweet Leaf Tea. Yum! I could get them by the case!

Day 137/365: May 17, 2014 One of my favorite days of the year, I could’ve just posted photos from this day for the entire week! This is a gem that I came across and I was so excited, I was like a kid in a candy store. More to come… (and yes, this place is real and it is as awesome as it looks)!

Day 138/365: May 18, 2014 Burger’s Lake, Fort Worth. I’ve heard about this place for a while and it is in deed real! It’s a small lake / large pond. Heck, let’s call it a large body of water with a sandy bottom full of toys for the kids, diving boards for the big kids and grills and picnic tables for all the kids. No camping but apparently a great place to spend the day with family and friends that will hold lifelong memories (so I’ve been told).

Day 139/365: May 19, 2014 Today was a Monday, I worked and had a case of the Monday’s and went grocery shopping. I was so exhausted from the weekend. Picture me curled up on my couch watching Mike and Molly and Friends with Better Lives. Both literally making me laugh out loud.

Day 140/365: May 20, 2014
Tuesday came along and things stayed consistent with Monday. I apologize but I’ll be making up for it shortly!

Day 141/365: May 21, 2014
Sound the trumpets! This is one of, if not my favorite food! I don’t have it often but man, is it wicked delicious! A Canadian delicacy, homemade fries, curd cheese and brown gravy. Don’t knock it until you try it, when you try it – it’ll knock your socks off!

“You and Me Going Fishing In The Dark” … Fishing at Lake Carmi with my brother and sister-in-law. So quiet and relaxing, so quiet in fact, we could hear people talk across the lake. I’m sure they could hear us too, laughing hystically. Well, my sister-in-law and I anyway. Pretty sure we drove my brother crazy. Oh yea – we caught three fish!

I did take photos on these days however they are all of my nieces. Although I love them so and would love to show them off to everyone, I don’t feel comfortable posting their photos on my blog. Moving on…

Day 126/365: May 6, 2014
Then came the day when I had to leave my home state. The day I hate. Oh the tears. Always tears. Seriously, look at this view of Lake Champlain. Priceless. So incredibly proud to be able to call this place home!

I got to play softball! Two games. For having not played in a couple years, I think I did pretty well. Would love to play more often so if anyone needs a player… give me a holler!

Hockey playoffs are one of my favorite times! Mostly because I can actually see the Habs play while in Texas (unlike the rest of the season). Habs vs. Bruins! What a great series!

Game 7 Montreal Canadiens vs. Boston Bruins. I’m not a Bruins fan by any means but this guy seriously cracked me up! Anyone else see his little dance (I’m not sure what else to call it) after he sang the national anthems?
