The Sur La Table in River Oaks was the only store in Texas (and the South!) to host the beloved Barefoot Contessa, Ina Garten, on her book tour for her new cookbook Foolproof. The Home You Make and I took the day off and patiently waited in line for her arrival. She was very warm and gracious in person, but unfortunately our interaction was brief.

The boy and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary at the end of November at the fabulous Triniti restaurant:
Then I got into the holiday spirit by visiting the Houston Zoo's inaugural holiday light display Zoo Lights. It was amazing visiting the zoo at night with such awesome displays. I definitely hope they do it again next year.

Happy New Year!! See you soon for more in 2013!
