Fashion Friday (It’s May Right?)

Today’s post will be of my outfit yesterday. Normally I am complaining about the heat this time of year, but this is Texas where you can go from wanting snow cones one day to busting your winter coat out the next. We were experiencing quite the cold front, mid 40’s is quite a shock to system let me tell ya. ¬†I wanted to look nice but still stay warm. Here is the look I came up with.

Fashion Friday is Back.

I am sorry I become so lapsed in my blogging. I think having a weekly built in theme of a blog post should do either one of two things, motivate to blog more, or really expose how lazy I truly am ūüėČ So here it goes I am returning to Fashion Friday posts. This is an outfit I wore on Wednesday when I met up with my friend Lauren and the other bridesmaids, for a girls night out, good food, and some shopping, so I tried to keep it stylish without being stuffy. The weather was absolutely gorgeous so I was able to wear shorts, but I knew night would become a little chilled so I grabbed “my” beloved denim jacket.

Music Monday 8

Well I’m feeling rather lazy…So I’m going to keep this post short and sweet. I am going to share one of my favorite songs of the incomparable Johnny Cash. I think one of the main reasons I like this song, other than the obvious fact that Johnny Cash is one of the greatest things that ever happened to music, is that in the song Rockabilly Blues Johnny names a lot cities here in Texas. Nothing like a bit of Texas pride to win someone over to a song right? Anyway here’s the link

Happy Music Monday guys!

Music Monday No. 3

Look at me still sticking to my new blog series! I’m so proud of me ūüėČ Well today’s musical¬†Monday¬†recommendation¬†is for a rather epic music video! As some of you may know, during the summer I was able to take part in a music video of Family Force 5’s through Kickstarter. The music video is Cray Button, and it was released a couple of weeks ago. Isaac Deitz was the videographer/director for this whole thing, and let me tell you he¬†absolutely¬†out did himself, the music is without a doubt one of best I have ever seen! So give it a watch/listen and prepare to have your mind blown ūüėČ

also I thought I might as well throw in the link to the behind the scenes footage. Nathan Mowery was the behind the scenes videographer, and I feel compelled to tell you all that the behind the scenes footage truly captures the awesomeness of the shoots, and I love it just as much as I love the actual music video!

If you ever have the opportunity to take part in a Family Force 5 music video do it! It could very well be one of the best decisions you ever make. You get to brag that you took part in something positively epic, and you will walk away with some amazing new friends, I know I did. I hope all of you enjoyed this post and that you all have a happy musical Monday!

 

Let’s Keep Talking About Stereotypes.

So I did a post on Native American stereotypes that I have had to put up with,¬†since I am Tsalagi. But another Stereotype I have had to put up with my entire life is stereotypes against…Texans. Quick what image just popped into your mind when I said Texans? Was it something along these lines?

Stereotype 1. Do you own a horse?

Not only do I not own a horse (homeowners association would not appreciate that) I have never owned a horse. Sure I lived next door to people who owned horses back when I lived in the sticks, but most Texans I know are more likely to own a dog not a horse.

Stereotype 2. You are gun crazy!

Well we do have the right to bear arms so… pretty much ya.

Stereotype 3. You are all cowboys.

Seriously? No! If I want to see some cowboys I am going to have to drive a good hour or two to find one. For every one real cowboy I could probably find several hundred business men.

Stereotype 4. Well you may not all be cowboys but you all dress like one.

Honestly I just got my first pair of cowboy boots last summer. So you can pretty much guess most of us don’t dress like it’s still the 1800’s. Of course if I go to Ft Worth I would be hard pressed to find someone who wasn’t wearing cowboy attire. Honestly¬†its more of a regional thing.

Stereotype 5. We have an over the top pride for our state.

Why yes, yes we do. I know several people from all over the US and I have yet to find one who loves their state more than we Texans.

Stereotype 6. You all love country music.

This could not be more wrong! I mean I like country music but most of my family hates it. One time country music was playing quietly in the grocery store and mom said “what is that noise?” not knowing that it was music. So no not all of us enjoy country.

Stereotype 7. You all drive trucks!

Do we drive more trucks than most of the world? Probably. But with gas prices being what they are a lot of us are driving sedans. On a side note this is kind of my dream car.

Stereotype 8. You are tough.

Well this is partly true, some of the toughest people I know are Texans, but then again I’m a Texan so we’re not all tough. ūüėČ

Stereotype 9. We love George W. Bush

Yes. But it’s more like some of us love him and some of us love to hate him. But enough about that, mommy told me to never talk politics.

Stereotype 10. You all want to secede the union.

We all joke about it, and even entertain the idea of it, but honestly having to have a passport to visit anywhere else in the US seems a little ridiculous…But you never know ūüėČ

As always I hope you guys enjoyed this post. And if you guys have stories of stereotypes you have had or had people believe about you feel free to share. Happy Monday!
