Today I woke up all sorts of excited to have lunch with my dear friend Chonie. 99% because since the moment we met, we realized that once near each other, we never shut up. 1% because we were headed to Bouldin Creek who makes the most unbelievable beverage called the Lavender Mocha (which I get with Almond Milk). Normally I am a black coffee with sugar kinda gal, but this frothy cup of awesomeness has stolen my taste buds and left me obsessed. So obsessed that I realized later that when I got dressed this morning, I actually dressed in the outfit version of lavender mocha. What happens in my brain is strange...I just drink coffee and go with it.
The rest of the week was just as busy as part 1 with more baking, and a bit of time spent exploring Austin!
Last week there seemed too few Instagram photos to bother with a post and then BAM! There are so many now that I have to split it into to two!
I realized this week that I am walking distance from both Hey Cupcake and Big Top Candy Shop. Kinda scary as I ordered my wedding gown already and have to fit into that size. No yummies unless I walk there!

The round up is not as adventurous this time...November and December are my biggest months of the year for Manic Trout, so I work 15 hour days almost entirely from November 1st until December 22nd. I try to take breaks for a fun things, but it happens infrequently, so most of my photos will most likely be in the studio for the next two months...or of food...as its one of the few things I break for....well if that's not the worst into ever, I don't know what is!
From our special "hair cut edition/new outfits that we bought together" date night at
I am OBSESSED with this dish at
I wish more then anything that I could wear my Wonder Woman costume every single day of the year. If you missed it, I did a whole post on Halloween and one on just the costumes...hmm, obsessed much?? Oh and ps...we own these bad ass costumes, so if you think our super powers are needed on a random day, just give the word!
I was a bit lazy when I made the samples for the new
I collect random pretty bowls and eat almost everything out us usually 3 at a time. This one is my current favorite. Let me share that even after the move where I got rid of boxes full of dishes, I still have three full sets and countless random others. I have a problem with dishware. The contents are my all time favorite snack. My mom asked yesterday on FB what it was. I almost fell out of my chair when I read it as its been my favorite snack for oh, I'd say 33 years and she was the one who introduced it to me at the tender age of 1 (is that when kids eat solids?). In my world apples and peanut butter = awesome.
New earrings! I have been obsessed with Wonder Woman my entire life. Big shocker there. My sister Holly has given me WW gifts over the years for Christmas, and I have quite the collection! This beauty is a Burger King cup from the 80's and I received it just last year. WW has quite the sassy booty here, doesn't she?
ok, that was all much wordier then intended...see, I knew I should be writing in the evenings!
Ok, I cheated...there's a photo from last week too...but I thought it important to include Fashion Week and I think I missed a week? Well, with Adams move this past weekend things were a bit wonky. On a related note, one week from tomorrow and my apartment will finally be ready!! It was HOT this week...over 110 on more than one day, a few days we gave up by mid afternoon and headed off to watering holes...it seemed the only sane thing to do!
Late to the party, but at least I arrived...Instagram and I have officially met and its a match made in heaven...I'm having a ball! Here is my past week...
Tuesday: Olivia sporting an old school Sierra Creation from approx 20 years ago...ah I used to LOVE making Friendship Bracelets and this massive one was one of my favs! My mom found an old stash and I think Olivia rocks it perfectly at Trivia Night with her glittery chucks.
