So Macy's has it right! First you promote Mardi Gras and THEN you promote Valentine's Day.
And I hate myself because I went in to exchange a pair of pants and ended up purchasing a pair that was $40 more and then found a fabulous Marc Ecko shirt that I couldn't live without. Actually, there were three shirts but I could only afford one. Hopefully the other two shirts will be there in a couple of weeks.
January 6 is the Feast of the Epiphany, the Feast of the Three Kings, the 12th Day of Christmas and the beginning of Mardi Gras Season. I should be posting a photo of something religious or Mardi Grasesque but instead I saw this display of Little Debbie Snack Cakes for Valentine's Day and couldn't resist...snapping a photo OR buying box.
I was aimlessly strolling through Target and saw this and reminded myself that IF I ever get a tattoo it is going to be the Little Debbie logo. After all, my butt wouldn't be as big as it is without Little Debbie's help.
Our new building is REALLY nice and isn't too far from downtown. We are in Montrose which is an eclectic neighborhood. I'm house on the fourth floor of the building and we have a great view of the downtown skyline.
I worked late and decided to play around with some of the settings on my camera to see what type of pic I could get through the glass and without a tripod. I think I did good.
I'm not sure how much was spent on the neon for this restaurant but they did an excellent job! This space was formerly the Tower Theater. I don't know much about it because by the time I moved to Houston, it was vacant and then was converted to a Hollywood Video Store.
The food is good and the margaritas will kick your ass. I have determined that two is my limit at El Real.
It was a crisp, cold morning in Houston. We haven't too many of those types of days. I was out walking The Calvinator and snapped this picture just as the sun was making its appearance. That is Memorial Drive in the foreground.
We were closed on Monday so I was home most of the day. Normally when I am home The Calvinator is running around. He slept most of Monday. In the evening, I looked at his eyes and they were red and watery. I guess even dogs can catch a cold.
St. Anne Catholic Church in Houston is a beautiful church. There is little need for decorating it with floral arrangements. I always like the flowers at Christmas. In the Roman Catholic faith, January 1 is The Feast of the Solemnity of Mary which in 2012 coincided with Sunday Mass.
