You might give some serious thought to thanking your lucky stars you're in Texas

I've been managing to keep busy. . . .

Baba Yega: Where I hosted a very successful surprise birthday brunch for my mother-in-law, if I do say so myself.

Luby's: My family used to go here every Sunday after church. I always get the same thing: veggie platter of corn, green beans, and macaroni and cheese, with a clover roll on the side. (And if Mom lets me, Jello for dessert. : P)

Yogurtland: Though I do appreciate the other yogurt places I've discovered, especially as they're native Texans, Yogurtland is my first and true love for serve-it-yourself yogurt spots. Plus they're cheaper. Plus they have this awesome Sanrio promotion going on that totally combines two of my favorite things (froyo and childishly cute characters). I am not ashamed to say that I bought myself a T-shirt with the above logo when I happened into the store last week. Nor am I ashamed to say that I entered their sweepstakes wishing and hoping that I would win a Hello Kitty beach cruiser, despite the fact that I just bought a new bike last weekend. . . .

Boone's: This is the awesome store where I got my bike.

Black Walnut Cafe: Open early on the weekends, this is a great place to just undo all the biking you did by indulging in a delicious Tex-Mex Omelet.

Kuhl-Linscomb: Amazing design and gift store that I can't believe I never entered until the other day. May be coming to close to tying with Liberty of London for my #1 fave store. If I didn't already have two jobs, I definitely would have responded to their "help wanted" ad in the front window.

And because I'm beginning to fear for both my waistline and my wallet, I'll just quickly list the recent rest:
