    Komé Austin



    I haven’t written about places in Austin. Last weekend some friends were in town visiting from Houston. They were craving eat ramen, so by recommendation we went to Komé. Restaurant

    We arrived around 9:30pm Friday night, without reservations. There was quiet a bit of people waiting. They said it was about a 30 minute wait. I don’t think it took that long at all. We were starving so I didn’t…

    Transformation Tuesday: Getting Healthy


    Just a few weeks short, from two years, since I had the shingles. Oh what terrible experience! About six months before I started working out with my friend, Brandon, that is a personal trainer. Now I’ve always been relatively petit, but I wanted to be fit.

    We’d workout once or twice a week, cardio, boxing, weight. My work schedule at the time never allowed me to get on a constant routine. Eh, I…

    Growing up Charming: Domestic Violence- Just the Beginning

    Domestic Violence Awareness month starts in October, and it’s a serious issue that should be address more. Some of my blog post will be from excerpts of my own experience to spread awareness.


    I was seven years old when I first met the devil. Standing about 5′ 4″ fair skin, dark brown hair, and beady eyes. He went by the nickname “Frank.” I instantly had one of those cold spine tingling chills run up my back. You know the kind that makes your hairs stand on end. I was surrounded in a joyful celebration for my cousin birthday and I could not shake the terror I felt meeting this person.…

    Main Street Round Rock Photoshoot

    Main Street Round Rock Photoshoot

    The other day my friend Chinyere and I went up to Round Rock, Texas. It’s a quaint town outside of Austin. Our goal was to take some photos with Chinyere’s Nikon D3200 camera at sunset. Eh, we just wanted to see what we could capture. However, we got there just after sunset. We snapped a few shots and my friend, Eliezer Gallegos, did the touch ups. Not to shabby. Chinyere and Eli are going to be…

    Whiskey Wednesday

    Yesterday was Wednesday,”and on Wednesdays, we wear pink.” Just kidding! Here, in Austin, it was time for another Blues on the Green. Most of the day I thought I was going to go there. Then I got one of those darn Facebook messages!


    (Some of my best friends always Facebook message me, when I’m at work, instead of text. I don’t why, but apparently I only get half the texts or calls to my phone.…

    Forgiveness and Peace


    Lately, I have been feeling disappointed by a lot of people. (Yes, I’m writing about feelings. Hold on, it gets better) I keep finding myself saying this person, and that person is flakey. I’ve never been great with expressing my emotions, especially disappointment. I was raised to just busy myself with something else and keep quiet.

    I remember back in college breaking up with my ex-boyfriend, of…

    Salsa in 5 minutes
    Salsa in 5 minutes

    1 small can mild Rotel
    1 large can whole peeled tomatoes
    3 Serrano peppers
    1 lime

    Mhmm, I love salsa! This is my salsa in 5 minutes or maybe less recipe. I modified my award winning salsa (Ok, so…it was just a work competition, but it’s a corporation office) to a simple and quick for those busy days.

    First, boil a small pot of water. Once the water starts boiling, put the Serrano peppers in until the skin starts slightly to wrinkle. Drain and let cool. Once cooled chop the stems off.

    In your blender, place the can of Rotel, some cilantro (start with about a 1/4 cup then and more taste liking later), Serrano peppers, and the can of whole peeled tomatoes.

    First, set your blender to chop. This will give it a chunky texture. If you like your salsa runny, set the baby to liquefy!

    Last cut your lime into quarter wedges and squeeze in to taste .

    *you can other things in to your taste liking. Such as, garlic powder or a garlic clove.

    Simple, done, and delicious!
