I was in my own bubble yesterday. When I left work I started listening to NPR and President Obama was on the air talking about the attacks in Paris. I went back into my bubble when I went to the storage looking for some items that were packed a year ago.

I get home, walk The Calvinator, eat and start watching the telly and that is when I realized the extent of the terror and carnage in Paris.

I awakened this morning and tuned in to CNN and tried to start processing what happened. I immediately thought of this:

I then searched for this quote from Bobby Kennedy:

"No one - no matter where he lives or what he does - can be certain who will suffer from some senseless act of bloodshed. And yet it goes on and on.

Why? What has violence ever accomplished? What has it ever created? No martyr's cause has ever been stilled by his assassin's bullet.

No wrongs have ever been righted by riots and civil disorders. A sniper is only a coward, not a hero; and an uncontrolled, uncontrollable mob is only the voice of madness, not the voice of the people." -The Cleveland Club, April 8, 1965

The Houston Astros made it to the playoffs and baseball fever got the best of me. I had to have at least one new shirt!

The City of Houston Mayor's Hispanic Advisory Board had an awards ceremony at the Museum of Fine Arts/Houston. Recipients were recognized for their achievements.
Erik Barajas was one of the emcees and Mango Punch provided the music to dance to.

Pic Of The Day - 10.04.15 - I Couldn't Resist

I saw these Oreos at Target and couldn't resist. They taste like regular Oreos but I guess because they looked different I just had to have them. #dontjudge

Pic(s) Of The Day - 10.03.15 - A Grand Ole Time

So let me explained what happened. I grouped these photos together even though one of them was taken on October 1. Rather than do two postings about The Diana Foundation Country Dinner Weekend, I just lumped them all together.

This was the Diana's big weekend and this year they bumped it up several notches. They invited Steve Grand to perform on Saturday at the dinner which was held at Neon Boots. The night before, there was a VIP Meet & Greet with Steve. So...

The first picture is Steve performing on Saturday night. The second picture is me with Steve on Friday night. The third picture is me with A.J., Harlan and Kendall on Saturday night. If you're not paying too much attention, it looks like I am wearing the same shirt on Friday and Saturday but I'm not. I just realized that both nights I wore a navy blue shirt with a print. Really. It's not the same shirt.

Pic(s) Of The Day - 10.02.15 - What A Wonderful Surprise

As I previously mentioned, it's that time of year for luncheons, etc. I really didn't want to attend the LWI luncheon but I was asked to be there and to help with the registration, so I agreed and I'm glad I did.
First of all, I like going to the Junior League of Houston because they serve orange rolls but I digress. The first surprise was the swag at the table, it was cookbook and a big one at that!

The next surprise, and it was a big one, was the guest speaker Christy Haubegger. "Who?" you might ask because that is what I did. Christy is a fireball but more importantly, she is the founder of Latina Magazine, a film producer, and an agent at CAA. Wow! She represents Salma Hayek, Pitbull, Eva Longoria, and several others.
She gave an inspirational speech that even though it was directed to the Latina audience, it was a message that could resonate with anyone. And, she is a class act!
I am so glad I attended the luncheon.
