plum texan: adventures in being me.

The many loves of Plum Texan

Filed under: Uncategorized — by plumtexan @ 11:02 pm

This post brought to you by my newest love affair, an as-yet-unrenamed MacBook whom, I think you will agree, is quite the luscious lovely.

Yes, despite the recently-mentioned work insanity, I find myself in love with a number of things these days. Work itself, for example – Friday was two years since I first walked in the door. No matter how much it wears me out sometimes, I’m really lucky and really grateful.

I also don’t have a great photo you haven’t already seen for the next one: adorable Thomas turned three on Friday. No, I didn’t miss it; I left his mom a voice mail to play for him, and now I just hope they all survived the weekend (two parties yesterday, I was told). It just seems remiss not to pay Interweb tribute to the first (and so far, only) person whose birth I attended. Happy belated birthday, darlin!

Catching up from last week, a little more love:

The gorgeous Claudia silk laceweight from Twisted Yarns, in the Last Night’s Wine colorway. It would also seem that the Claudia and the MacBook have developed a mutual admiration society:

They sure do look cozy. Now that’s a pile of pulchritude I could really go for.

Oh…did somebody mention birthdays?

Yep, you guessed it: the last love for tonight is the love of my life. Here, my freshly-groomed TechieBK Bryan holds forth during dinner at Saltgrass (mmmm), all in honor of his third turn through the Chinese zodiac, also known as his 36th birthday. Amy, my parents, and more friends – Bryan’s BFF Kirk and his wife Patty – joined in for a nice long sit-around, replete with jokes and inappropriate humor, how-we-met stories, and it’s-a-wonder-we-made-it-through-childhood stories. The best kind of evening, in my opinion…and, it seemed, in his too.

Happy birthday, handsome. You’re another year goofier and I love you for it.



  1. Congratulations on all the loves of your life. You’re a lucky woman!!!

  2. Happy Birthday Bryan and Thomas! :-) I love your Claudia silk — I see you are still petting it shamelessly. It is gorgeous stuff . . . the MacBook “centerfold” pose is priceless.
