LouFest 2015

LouFest by the numbers:

34 bands there for the weekend
20 bands we were able to check-out
$50 tickets for the weekend
approximately $2.50 per band

perfect sunshine skies

I think I would say Sunday's weather was the best LouFest weather I've ever experienced!

So many bands, so many good people, such a good time.

I walked into LouFest with a different mindset this year than years past.  There wasn't one band I am absolutely crazy about that I was so excited to see.  Was Billy Idol on my to see list?  No.  Did I absolutely sing and dance to "Dancing with Myself"?  Yep.  So even though I wasn't crazy about a band, I really enjoyed LouFest anyway.  Who can complain when your surrounded by so much music all weekend.

Monday morning I got to work and after being quickly thrown into work by 11 I texted Mike.  "I wanna be back at LouFest"
Sunday we got to the fest and decided to take our daily jump picture.  The lovely volunteer taking our photo started the burst before we were ready (might as well) and we got the gem on the left.  I couldn't stop laughing every time I looked at it (and I love it) so now I share it with you.  In the photo on the right I kicked Karen.  Sorry Karen!

Burst.  Always burst.

Favorite Sets:  
     Clockwork - not only did I enjoy their music set, but I swear I could feel the drummer's energy from the 3rd row.  Great set!

Best Banter: 
     Strand of Oaks

With so many bands and so much going on, I was sad I missed Coin.  But I guess you can't catch them all...

Until next year, LouFest...


  1. I am appreciative of the new category of "Best Banter"

  2. It looks like you are hitting me in the head as well in the picture on the right, but you aren't. :)

Veggie Tinga

I made Vegetarian Tinga for a mexican pot luck I went to on Tuesday.

Many people have never heard of Tinga, let alone knowing you can make it vegetarian style.  You absolutely can!  And it's so easy.

Traditional tinga is made of shredded chicken with chipotle flavoring.  I used cabbage instead of the chicken.

I looked at a lot of different recipes online, but couldn't find a recipe for the veggie tinga I had in mind, so I ended up combining the guidelines of those recipes and making my own.

Here's what I did:

1 onion
1 head of cabbage
1 7oz. can chipotle (the peppers in adobo sauce)
5 ish roma tomatoes
olive oil

-Saute onion in olive oil.
-Chop cabbage (I used youtube to help me figure out the best way to do that) add to onion and saute.
-Blend the chipotle and tomatoes in blender.
Note:  Some people only like to add the sauce from the chipotle peppers.  I added the entire can (including the peppers themselves).  It's up to you depending on how spicy you want it.  (I like my food s…


*Karen tells me that is not what I'm supposed to say, but it makes sense in my head...

Saturday I was in San Antonio for work, I did get to hang out with a friend while I was in town so that definitely made the trip better, combined with the fact that the volunteers there are just wonderful.

I knew Sunday was going to be overwhelming before I left on Friday.  I always write lists when I'm overwhelmed, I wrote a list.  (Even though I hardly referenced it on Sunday.)  Just writing it down helps me feel better.

Sunday we registered for at two places, starting at 9am.  When we finished the second one (which we were both dragging ourselves through) it felt like it was time for was 2pm.  Guys, this experience brought so much clarity to people's registerys.  I would not necessarily say it was a fun experience.  And I am very happy Mike seems to have a vision because we would limit the insane number of options down to a couple options together and then I would say I don'…


I said when I turned 30 in January I was going to start using moisturizer.  Now, 6 months later, I can say I've kind of achieved the goal, but not really...

I have a moisturizer from several years ago, which I received as a Christmas gift.  I used it off and on over the years, mostly off.  I've probably used it more this year than ever before, granted the bar was very low.

I don't like it though.  I don't like the smell or really how it feels either.

Then I heard True Botanicals released a lower-priced Basics collection designed for younger skin, technically for people in their 20s, but whatever.  I decided to try their hydrating oil (the smallest one) to see if I am able to be consistent with use.

First impression: I'm still figuring out how much to use, but I love the smell.
