Serious Beef

by Wander Woman on Oct.30, 2014

Took a quickie road trip from Austin, through the dry plains of Central Texas, on to Lubbock.

Along the way, we pitstopped at a cattle ranch-slash-restaurant in Buffalo Gap that always gets a ton of praise from the beef-eatin’ folks in the state.

Eating melty filet in a twinkling wood cabin?!

Pretty incredible.

About & Out

by Wander Woman on Oct.24, 2014

Feel-good street art.

And dream digs…

Walked past this modern, window-filled home and my heart launched through my chest, tumbled and beat its way to the front door.

The white, the Deco house number, the kinda-hidden-but-not-really front porch…

Must have. One day…

On the Wall

This portrait of our monkey, which hangs next to her crib, is the sweetest.

It was a super special baptism gift from her godmama, Mishel.

The artist used pen and ink with washes of watercolor.

I just love this image of Jasper.

It captures, very softly, her wild child spirit…

Everyone’s Favorite Sandwich

Happy National Cheeseburger Day!

Like I really need a reason to shove a burger down my throat. It’s what I do every week anyway.

Small Biscuits… and 11 Months

by Wander Woman on Sep.15, 2014

Venison biscuits at Odd Duck, this newish small-plates place in South Austin. Not a fan of small plates (I hate having to order 5 menu items that all have entree price tags), but this dish was reasonably satisfying… paired with five more plates.


And how cute is this dinosaur-toy-with-its-spine-carved-out planter?!

I think I need to mutilate one of Jassy’s toys and turn it into something with adult purpose.

Just last week our Peewee hit the 11-month mark. She’s a busy body—climbing up and down the stairs, running laps around the house and restaurant interiors. And she has three whole teeth: Two on the bottom and one on the top, with another big upper tooth is about to make its debut.

What else?

Jas jibber-jabbers constantly. Her wake-up chit-chat with herself makes my heart dip. I listen to her through the baby monitor and wonder what thoughts are bouncing around her mushrooming mind. (Probably something to do with wanting a bottle or scheming up a crib escape. I’d like to think she’s admiring her Chinoiserie wallpaper… maybe she is.)

She is consistently sleeping through the night (till 7am-ish), which is amaaaazing. And as far as foods go, she likes anything she can eat with her hands: baby meatballs, fish sticks, chicken nuggets, sweet potato chunks, any type of fruit. Doesn’t care for more than 5 bites of oatmeal (which comes on a spoon) or sitting in a highchair for longer than 7 minutes. She finishes most of her meals while on the run (I follow her around jamming chunks of food in her mouth) or on my hip.

Texas Kicks

by Wander Woman on Sep.03, 2014

Now that she’s a walking machine, Peewee needs to wear shoes pretty much full-time.

We have a crush on Jassy’s first pair of cowboy boots from sweet Kuya (our great cousin) Caitlin. Oh, how we need these now!

10 Whole Months

by Wander Woman on Aug.14, 2014


At 9 1/2 months, our Peewee took her first step. Since then, she’s been toddling about, taking 4-10 steps every day. She’s a rascal—she climbs up and down the stairs, drunkenly walks from here to there, and occasionally manhandles big brother Purnie, using him as a walker to get across the room.

She even uses other babies as walkers, grabbing them by their shirtbacks and dragging them on a walk! It’s kind of adorable!
