I live a double life.  Most of my life is in Durham, but a large chunk of my life remains in Houston.  I've been traveling to Houston at least one week every month, sometimes more.  This is a busy time, and in four weeks, I've been in Houston 15 days.  While I miss Durham, Brent, and Blazer tons while I'm traveling, I do enjoy getting to see my friends and eat the food I miss like crazy.  Oh yeah, and I love my job too!  Houston weeks are always crazy-busy, so I never post while I'm here.  However, I thought I'd give you a glimpse into my everyday Houston life with the instagrams I've taken over my last two weeks here.

{dinner with katy b, my very first friend... we've been friends since we were 3, and I got to go over to her house since she moved to houston recently!  it was good to catch up.}
{katy's son, mason.  i mean, adorable.}
{as seen on food network:  queso fundido at the original ninfa's.  worth every calorie.}
{afternoon treat at crave cupcakes}
{nerd alert:  evening educator's forum at the museum of fine art - how to incorporate art into curriculum}
{taking my sweet nephew luke for a walk}
{adorable 6th graders reading the outsiders}
{love this classroom}
{weekly to-do list}
{dinner at tiny's no. 5 with erica.  beautiful weather.  serene atmosphere.}
{another shot at tiny's.  i heart that place big time.}
{the approximate speed at which one normally drives in Houston.  this is not an exaggeration, and this was an actual shot of my speedometer on the way to work.  i was going 2 mph people - it was safe to take a pic.  and check facebook.  and troll pinterest.}
{jason, jessica, & ixa - kids i taught in 7th grade all grown up and super smart in 10th grade now}
{student annotation of "the telltale heart"}
{best tex-mex IN THE ENTIRE WORLD:  lupe tortilla}
{the thursday night lupe's crew: besties}
From H-town with love,

KATIE! So funny you beat me to it! I was going to leave a comment telling you I had nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award but you saw first :) Made me smile!
When were you down in Houston? Looks like you hit up all the best spots! Ninfas on Navigation, Crave, Lupe, Tinys! YUM!
Isn't Tinys #5 amazing! I still love the original but this one is actually closer to my house and is bigger (aka faster to sit down!)
Hope all is well with you!
