food adventures: gourdough's

A few weeks ago I blogged about how my family visited Gourdough's for the first time and now my family is obsessed with their food. I love that their menu is so imaginative and creative. Their food is absolutely delicious and I think that the line of people who were there on a Saturday night can agree with me.

(Click on the link above for the full menu!)

This time around my family and I tried the Mother Clucker and the Flying Pig (which is my family's favorite - who wouldn't love a doughnut with bacon?)

Mmmhhh I'm already thinking about which doughnuts to get on our next visit. - Jessica

a study in e minor


These photos where taken way back in May for my 52 weeks project and I've been meaning to share these photos for a while now. When I took these pictures I had just had my last orchestra banquet (blog post) and I was about to have my last orchestra concert. The whole graduating and having to experience many lasts was very bittersweet. And I hate to admit it but I haven't played my violin since then (I've been playing the piano instead.) I'd love to get back into playing but I really love the whole orchestra setting over a string quartet, so if anyone knows of a recreational orchestra program in the central Texas area, I'm interested. -Jessica

the 28th week

I know it's been a while since I last posted a progress report on my 52 weeks project (it's been 25 weeks,) but lately my biggest obsession is reading blogs. I've been following several blogs and I've been inspired to do more with my own. So I'm going to start attempting to blog regularly (hopefully weekly,) and that can also help inspire me to take more pictures.

Last Sunday was my 18th birthday. The concept of being an adult is weird to me, even though I don't feel any different. I spend my day with my family, I finally went to Gourdoughs (film pictures to come within the future,) I cruised around South Congress, I saw "Despicable Me 2," and we went out to eat for dinner. While browsing around SoCo we went to shop where I got a toy dinosaur succulent, that I've been eyeing for a while. (They also have an online shop, where you can get dinosaur planters and other animals)

I also went out with my friend the other day to get snow cones! I got a kiwi banana flavor while my friend got a chocolate.
