A light lit Night

image

May your Christmas be merry & bright! Take the time to look at lights in your neighborhood. Gather the roommates, kids, or other pajamas clad individuals (that you know) & drive through some colorful & sparkly streets. Take cocoa, popcorn, something & jam to your holiday music. Its a good, good, thing.

First Friday Denton Edition

image

One of my favorite small towns ever (& the best in America) we host a first Friday art-tastic event each month. Pictured above is the shops participating on W Oak. If you stop by SCRAP they’ll have samples of Armadillo Ale works, Denton’s own micro brews. Get free sangria & nibble sized square delectables at Denton Square Donuts upstairs & peruse art while listening to live must at Creative Art Studio. Walk the square, open late, for all Christmas goodies & cheer! Don’t forget to Shop Small this season!

Food Truckin’ Lovin’s

So apparently food trucks are a big deal. They even have their own version of a Food Network War show. I even blogged my first visit here:
But as my screenshot shows, Denton too loves their food trucks, so much so that they’re having a party!

Then Dallas News decides to help in the promotion. http://www.nbcdfw.com/video/#!/the-scene/events/Denton-Throws-Food-Truck-Festival/175878041 So, obviously you too should come eat it too. Oh, and did I mention you could ride in on the DCTA A Train & that is where the party’s at? Yup. Hop to it!

What the Bernie?!

This last weekend I went a traveling (more details next week) & visited two towns not pronounced the way they are spelled. I was mocked for my pronunciation difficulties by my Dear family. Four places in Texas I know are said different than spelled.
Is it:
Mexia or Mahayah?
Boerne or Bernie?
Buda or Boodah?
Gruene or Green?

All are pronounced the second way but spelled the first way. Where have you traveled that was a speaking nightmare?

I’ll end this with a joke. Two men are driving to South Texas. They start to argue about how to pronounce Mexia. One swore it was Mexia & the other swore it was Mahayah. They stopped for lunch at the local DQ for lunch. Exasperated, one of the men turns & looks at the waitress. He tells her to tell that fool how you pronounce the name of this place! She turns, looks, and lowers her head to his and says real slowly, “it’s called dare-ee queeen.”
