hello from new orleans!  i’m out here for the first time ever and am excited to see the mardi gras aftermath haha.  so anyways it’s been awhile since i’ve shared my randomness so i figured it was about time again!  thanks carissa!

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

{1} a mini-date

this past saturday, marv and i went on a mini lunch date.  pretty much every time we go out to eat just the two of us i call it a date, HA.  we hit up a local bbq joint called the filling station and it was interesting to see an antique gas pump that read 23 cents a gallon.  i did a little research and that was pretty much back in the 1960s.  crazy to think that it’s grown about 15 times that in 50 years.

on a less depressing note, here was our scrumptious smokie joe and carolina pulled pork.  nom nom.  if any of y’all want to visit me in kansas city, i’ll take you out for a bbq marathon.

{2} daylight savings

when we woke up on sunday morning, the times in our house were set to three different times.  manual clocks were on old time, internet/atomic clocks were on the correct spring forward time, and my phone time was a little ambitious and sprung forward 2 hours.  happy to say, that all times agree now!

{3} healthy chips

marvin came home from the grocery store with a bag of food should taste good cheddar chips the other day and i must say… these are pretty darn fantastic.  these chips are made with cheddar cheese, quinoa, flax, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, soy, and brown rice, talk about healthy!! 🙂  i can’ t wait to try the sweet potato and chocolate varieties.

{4} yoga jeans

you’ve heard of jeggings and pajama jeans, but have you heard of yoga jeans?  with faux pockets and fly detail, and contrast stitching, these pants have a jean-like look but are made from a stretchy, breathable fabric that are great for the downward dog (i’ve done yoga once or twice in my life, yes i have).  these babies are totally my airplane pants that i wear with a sweater and tucked inside my steve madden boots.

{5} red hot shoes

every strong woman needs a pair.  apparently i just became a strong with these delicious babies that i picked up for my best friend’s wedding!

{6} three giveaways

i have three giveaways ending this tuesday at 12pm cst.  you could win $25 credit to chicgeek designs print shop, a vintage turquoise and green necklace from  no. 17 cherry tree lane or $25 credit to mary rebecca jewelry and accessory shop!  oh.. and i have three more giveaways coming up mid-week too, so don’t forget to check back!  🙂  i guess i like the number three lately.

now it’s your turn, tell me something random!
