Starbucks..... I love you but...

I also HATE you for keeping me awake until who knows when. I decided to turn my clock around when it was after midnight and I was still awake :( I got in bed at 9:30. So, being in bed for almost 3 hours and not being able to fall asleep made me a very unhappy camper. My body just didn't know what to do with all that caffeine. Mind you, I had Starbucks at 1pm, but I never really drink anything other than water and the coffee smelled SO good. (and it was!)

However, I prayed a lot in that time, and I also prayed that when my alarm went off at 5:45 this morning I would have the strength to get up, and get my workout in. When it did, I got up and was on my way.

So, starbucks, I love you, but for the time being if I go visit you I am only going to drink tea! I told Hope this morning to remind me NOT to drink coffee anymore, or at least not for the time being.

In other news, Camille is coming in town this weekend, and I'm so excited to see my dear friend! Love that girl.

AND on Sunday, I'm taking Christie, the girl that I mentor, to see IN THE HEIGHTS! I lovvvvvvve this show. I saw it in my beloved, NYC, last March with Jaclyn and it's awesome. Can't wait to see it here in Austin this weekend.

Happy Friday! :)

Blue Dahlia Bistro

"French Bistro meets Farmers Market. Ultramodern loft meets historic district. Hipster coffee house meets the Chitlin Circuit. There’s something about the confluence of all these elements that makes the Blue Dahlia Bistro a perfect microcosm of Austin."- Eat and Drink Austin

This place is one of my FAVORITE places to eat in Austin. It's a small french bistro over on E. 11th street. Mostly organic stuff, and everything is just so freakin fresh and delicious. If you have not tried this place you REALLY are missing out. My favorites reign from the Shrimp Tartine (a fancy name for a sandwich) to their perfect Belgian waffles with nutella :) Yum! They serve their entire menu all day, and honestly everything is so good that it doesn't matter when you go.

Recently, anytime I've had a friend in town and they want to try something new I take them to this place. And I haven't had any complaints yet :) Below is Melinda, my dear friend from Dallas, who was also my freshmen roommate! Time flies, and I'm so thankful to still be good friends with her.
So check out the menu,, and next time you want something new and fun, and really really good go to blue dahlia! You won't be disappointed.


For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

20Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
