Yes, those two words do describe me to a T! (Mother, Molly, Rachel, Dannah & anyone else thinking along those lines.) HOWEVER, I am talking about the hamburger I had for lunch. In order to get grilled mushrooms and onions you had to ask for a messy, trippy burger.

Where can you get such a burger? Right in Mesquite at Scrumbscious burgers and pie shakes.
I have actually had a burger from there, but had not actually visited the restaurant itself. 

Mom and Dad took this adventure with me and we enjoyed the ride.

Groovy Little Chocolate Angle

I attended the July meeting of my first book club, appropriately named "A Groovy Little Book Club" at the Chocolate Angel. This was my first experience at this tea room and I enjoyed this place. 

Thank you Leslie Reynolds for moderating our group. You are doing a great job!

Cupcake Crawl

We (Rachel, Dona, Lecia & myself) took a whirl wind trip around Downtown Dallas to find the best tasting cupcake. 

Fluellen's-Banana Pudding

Original Cupcakery-Carrot Cake (thank you Mr. Nelson for the conversation & picture!!)

Trailercakes-Red Velvet

Sprinkles- Red Velvet Ice Cream

(We didn't make it to Gigi's. I can attest that their cupcakes have the most icing.)

They were all delicious & amazing. 

Oh, and a delicious burger from Twisted Root. (Another first for me!!)

Freeze Frame

For the very first time ever, I have a brand spankin' new refrigerator. We bought our last one used for $100 when we moved into our house fifteen years ago. 
I love her!!! Isn't she gorgeous?!?

You can see my favorite and least favorite here.

Indian Food ( • not feather)

Tried Indian food for the first time today. I wasn't sure if the spices would be too much for me, but ther seemed to be a good balance of choices. 
The goat dish & naam (type of bread) were two of my favorites. 
Thank you Mark & Lecia for taking this journey with us today!

Country Drive

I drove Tommy through a back way from Forney to Rockwall for the first time. After having dinner at Alfredo's, which was also a first and very yummy, I showed him how to get to Rockwall from there. 
You might be saying to yourself, that's a no brainer, but if you know my Tommy, he doesn't make things  very complicated these days and doesn't travel too far off the beaten path.

Shake it up

Today I did not do anything spontaneous or "brand new". Sunday are meant as a day of rest, right?
However, I did try a different flavor of shake at Sonic I have never tasted--- Chocolate Hazelnut Cream.

Not too bad. The hazelnut was too strong at first, but I got used to the taste.

HyPnoTIze Me!!

Today is actually a two for one of things I've never done:

HypNotic Donuts on Garland Road might just be the best donuts EVER!! The line was out the door, but only took about fifteen minutes to get to the front. Definitely worth the wait!!!

Then- I took a spin on an inverted sit-n-spin in Downtown Dallas. Very fun.

Mellow Yummo!

We tried the new Mellow Mushroom in Rockwall that place is delish! I recommend garlic cheese bread to start and the Mellowterranian pizza. 

My favorite part of their decor was the HUGE 1974 hanging on the wall upstairs representing the year the restaurant was founded and of course, when yours truly was born.
