Capitalism: A Love Story

Although Michael Moore is a little extreme in his opinions... you can't deny the facts. He was on Howard Stern show yesterday and the interview got me really excited to see this movie.

Hotel St. Cecilia

This past weekend I headed back to Austin and caught up with friends from college, watched UT beat Tech (hook 'em!), and was reminded about how much I miss that amazing town. Needless to say, those three days flew by way too quickly. So quickly in fact, I didn't get a chance to take any pictures of our beautiful hotel.

Hotel Saint Cecilia is right off of South Congress (right by Docs!) and the property is incredible. From the car parked out front to the vinyl collection in the lobby, Hotel Saint Cecilia embodies the spirit of Austin in every way possible.

Fruit Fly Trap

Currently, I am at war with the fruit flies in my kitchen. I was ready to jump in the car and pick up some of these carnivorous plants but I read further and realized maintaining these little guys is not as easy as I thought. Oh well...just staring at these photos is incredibly satisfying.
