favorite new shop

Sunday afternoon while sitting around the kitchen table at my aunt and uncle's house the topic of this place came up. JM dry goods is a shop in Marfa,TX that sells my favorite soap. (Pictured below).

As well as, all kinds of great finds from Mexico. I'm so excited they have relocated in Austin, TX.

My mom being the fly by the seat of her pants kind of gal, said "let's go check it out." So we turned off the soup on the stove and drove over to the shop. I was able to pick up my soap. And we browsed the shop while visiting with the shop owner Michele. (I want to be her new best friend). She was so welcoming and sweet.

I can't wait to get a OAXACAN EMBROIDERED BLOUSE for the summer. And a OAXACAN WOVEN BRACELET. And these chairs (when I win the lotto).

I just love, love, love the shop. If you are in Austin, TX come check out JM dry goods.

find this man

I don't think I have many readers who live in Austin, TX. But just in case there are a few who are lurking in the shadows.

You may have heard about Esme Barrea, who was killed New Years Eve. It has been all over the news. I did NOT know her but I wish I had. She sounds like a really awesome all around lady.

The site below has a lot of great information about the suspect.

If you see this man, please call the Austin police.

lists and resolutions

Things to do/see/have by the new year

Watch tv outside(football game?)
ACL moody theater 11/30 & 12/1
Eat a steak 12/25
Fredricksberg or Longview
2 step
Ballet or play
run a 5k
Chicken shit bingo
Go bowling

Above is my list of fun things I wanted to do before the new year. I only got 2 done. Waa waa. I must revise my list.

As for my new years resolutions, I really only have one this year. Which is to lose some god damn weight! I have to, I must! At least 10 but I would like to lose 20. Right now, I will settle for just one pound. I plan to use one lunch per week on the trail and step up my cardio in the new year. I might even run two times a week if things at work aren't too crazy.

Wish me luck friends. I'm gonna kick 2012 ass!
