Friday Five

  1. Here are some pics to prove Rachel and I went to Denver for Brent's wedding.

    Me and Rachel with the mountains behind us.
    Me and the groom minutes before the ceremony.

    The ACU gang that came to the wedding.



    Me in the mountains, being adventurous. :-)

  2. Country music has changed since the '90s, at least the country music endorsed by the radio stations. Can't stand most of it. I do like Lady Antebellum. They have an old-school country sound. And great vocals. And their lyrics aren't about drinking ... or whatever Kenny Chesney sings about.

  3. I'm just about finished with the book "Gomorrah," the expose on the Italian organized crime network more powerful and violent than the Mafia. Crazy brutal! If that title sounds familiar, it's because the book was made into a movie. It's on my Netflix queue. What should I read next? Leave your suggestions in the comments. I think I've had enough murder and corruption, so send me in a different direction. I just want a book I can't put down, one with well-developed characters, good plot and excellent writing.

  4. I finally saw John Michael Montgomery in concert! I've loved JMM since his first single, "Life's a Dance." He performed at an ACS charity event. I dressed up like a cowgirl for this event. It was fun! I now own a pair of cowboy boots. Here is a picture back at home after spending five hours outdoors on a hot Saturday. Luckily my job was in the shade.


  5. I've blogged before about my buckwheat pancake recipe. The pancakes are small, about the size of the palm of your hand. The recipe makes two servings, pictured below.


    Can you believe that is only two servings? I eat two pancakes for breakfast, topped with strawberries, and served with yogurt. I can't imagine eating seven of these dense pancakes in one setting. I make this recipe and it feeds me for two weeks (Monday-Thursday). (I don't know why this text is formatted as a link.)

I love the boots! So cute! I've started thinking about getting boots but don't really know where to start. The Western Warehouse on 75 closed.

It's non-fiction, but I'm really getting a lot out of Michael Pollan's "In Defense of Food." It's much easier to read than "The Omnivore's Dilemma." I also just finished Anne Lamott's "Grace Eventually," and I liked it a lot. She's really funny. I don't know when I became a non-fiction person. I didn't used to like it at all!

Forget the boots...you're wearing a dress!
