High-Heeled Love: Weekly Round-Up - Daily Habits to Stay Optimistic from the Positivity Blog

These three daily habits to stay optimistic from the Positivity Blog were something I needed to read this week. Sometimes life gets a little overwhelming, and a few good habits can keep the day from turning into a half-empty.

High-Heeled Love: Weekly Round-Up - Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies from Ambitious Kitchen

It seems like there are always more bananas in our house than we can eat while fresh, so this whole banana oatmeal cookie recipe from Ambitious Kitchen looks like a great fit to try out. Doesn't the photo just make your mouth water.

HIgh-Heeled Love: Weekly Round-Up - Comment on Other Blogs from Kimi Who?

Since this linky party is about growing our blogger community, it makes me happy when I get to share blog posts that help us do that. And Kimi Who? hit the nail on the head with reasons why you should comment on other blogs.

High-Heeled Love: Weekly Round-Up - Screen Freedom: Feed the Birds by Maxabella Loves

Maxabella Loves has a series on her blog called screen freedom, which is focused on unplugged activities for her family. I am loving all the bird feeder ideas she shared recently.

High-Heeled Love: Weekly Round-Up - DIY Cabinet Hardware Jewelry Orgazier from the Happy Housie

I believe when I get home from Austin, I will have to start hunting hardware to make my own jewelry organizer inspired by this DIY Cabinet Hardware Jewelry Organizer that the Happy Housie shared.

I confess...

I am LOVING my time in Austin so far. The weather has been gorgeous; I can't get enough of the sunshine and blue Texas skies.

I confess...

We started the day off by trying to go to Franklin's Barbeque; we were hoping since I arrived at 11 a.m., that we'd get into line before the wait was too ridiculous. Unfortunately, luck wasn't with us, and the wait was more than 2.5 hours so we headed over to Stubb's BBQ instead.

Airport Virtual Coffee

Good morning, my friends!

I'm officially in vacation mode. I'm sitting in the Charlotte-Douglas Airport right now waiting for my flight to Austin. Since I started the morning before 4 a.m., it feels like half the day has gone by, but it's only a little after seven right now.

I'll tell you what, the pups did not know what to think of alarms going off so early. BTW, did you see this photo of my cuties on the 'gram yesterday? They're good coffee buddies, too.

High-Heeled Love: Airport Virtual Coffee

This morning's good mood is sponsored by coffee and a cajun filet biscuit from Bojangles. Actually, this is my second cup of coffee. Considering that we have a full day planned when I arrive in Austin, I expect there will be a couple more doses before the day ends.
Good morning, friends! What's on tap for today?

People watching in the airport is interesting, and in an airport like Charlotte, which is international, you see all kinds and some daring fashion choices as well. I will freely admit that I've been doing some mental judgement today, but I really shouldn't.

So, I really want to give a shout out to the moms out there who have flown with children under the age of 5. There is a family on this trip with two little ones; the youngest is probably about 18 months. Mom and baby were sitting directly behind me on the last flight, and the kids have been so good. I just don't know how you moms do it. It's about all I can do to get myself where I need to be.

Can we talk about the fact that I miss my pups already? The Mister and I can talk on the phone, but puppy kisses don't translate via FaceTime.

It's a good thing that Janna has two sweet babies for me to love on. Don't you miss your furbabies when you travel? In the meantime, check out this pibble cuteness!
This will make you cry - watch as a Pit Bull puppy is reunited with the man who rescued him from life as a bait dog. (Via: bit.ly/1rmyefD)
