houston events calendar may 23 29 2016spent all day today at work, duh, and for “brain work” i spent a lot of energy getting back on solid ground in regards to my emotional state. there had be a real big hole in my heart this past year and i tried hard to fill it with all sorts of things that didn’t fit and now i think finally, after this weekend, finally all is good again. i can exhale and continue moving forward.

buffalo bayou partnership: cistern tour

2016 May 19
by dena

IMG_0047halie and i toured the BBP sabine street cistern last sunday and it was so freakin cool. the tour was $2 (buy tickets online in advance HERE) and lasted 20 minutes. the cistern itself was slightly underwhelming – just because i had seen so many pictures posted by friends the day before BUT i still recommend going. you’ll learn SO many facts, and it made me love houston that much more. so yeah. also, funnest fact i learned, thursday is the bbp cistern tour FREE day – so take your next date, or go on a date by yourself, or let a bff take you. blah blah.

superbowl garden work day: best low key party ever

2016 April 24
by dena

IMG_9938whoops (and yes if you sent that snap, i heard through the grapevine and now you should do something in person, dramatic and surprising) anyway 2 months later and here are some pictures i never posted. highlights of this superbowl party: it was at the most beautiful house in 3rd ward (supposedly aretha fraklin used to hang out here) and although there was a lot of garden work to be done, there were too many cooks in the kitchen so makenzie and i got to sit on garden lounges and sunbath while everyone else planted fruit trees and do hard work stuff. but. speaking of cooks in the kitchen, we did wash all the dishes after lunch and the girl host/house owner now forever loves us. (washing dishes at a party is basically the best gift one could ever give. remember that) also we watched just enough of the game – it was a superbowl party – and dinner was vegan so it was basically the best party ever. also a new garden girl friend AND summer strawberry shiner beer. all the good things.
