No importante...

Nothing important to say, but...

I woke up yesterday with a crazy intense craving for green dip from Casa Ole. If you've never heard of or been to Casa Ole, you're missing out. It's pretty good Tex-Mex, but the real reason I go is for the green dip. They bring it out with the chips and salsa. It's basically guacamole (which I hate!) blended with sour cream. It's always served cold, and it's so creamy and spicy...mmmmmmmm! Unfortunately, the nearest CO is 2+ hours away. (I can't understand how there's not a single CO in the entire DFW area!) I tried making my own this evening, with a recipe I found online. I've never bought an avocado in my life, much less tried to peel and mash one. It was...interesting. However, my green dip is made and sitting in the fridge to "chill." Hopefully it'll be cold enough to taste before I go to bed.

I went to Canton this weekend with my mom and Jeff. (For those of you who don't know, Canton is a town that is taken over one weekend a month with the biggest craft fair/flea market in the state.) We found the PERFECT fabric for Cate's nursery. My mom is making all the bedding (cause she rules!) and now we have fabric! I was so excited, and still am. I also managed to buy Cate a headband in almost every color, plus a hat. This kid's going to have more than she can wear in a lifetime!

I think Cate likes to shop. She kicked the whole time we were at Canton. I really couldn't feel definite kicks and such until Thursday or Friday, so for her to do that all weekend was totally awesome. Admittedly, my back is killing me, because she kicks painfully every time I slouch even the tiniest bit, but it is so cool.

I have been absolutely terrible about commenting, and for that I'm sorry. I swear I'm reading, and I send you good thoughts in my head. You wonderful ladies are never far from my thoughts!


  1. When Julie was a toddler, we would take her to Casa Ole to eat She would eat chips and salsa until tears ran down her face. We would make her stop and eat some sugar until the burning eased, then she would start again. She has always loved salsa.

  2. I love that you know already that Cate likes to shop. Is daddy worried? hehe!

    good luck with the salsa!

  3. Ooooh...Casa Ole green dip! Love that stuff! And, you're right. How can there not be one in the entire DFW area?? I feel the same way about there only being one Zio's (and it being all the way in FW!)! Yah, I'm a DFW girl, too! :-)

    So glad you scored the perfect fabric over the weekend! Is there a theme/color scheme for the nursery?

  4. I love that Cate loves to shop...that's awesome.

    plus I cannot wait to see her nursery stuff and those headbands!!!

    we have a Fiesta Ole here that makes this cheesy salsa dip that is "to die for"'s soooo good....hope you enjoyed that dip :)

  5. Love the green dip at Casa Ole! We drive about 20 minutes to get to the only one in the Austin area... that we know about.

    I've always wanted to go to Canton, but have never been. I have gone to the Antique Festival at Round Top/ Warrenton.

    I can't wait to see pictures of the bedding!

  6. oh I SO wanna see a pic of that bedding!

    And I think I've had that type of dip at another restaurant before. I'm not a big guac fan either but I did like that dip.
