Ava's Culinary Adventures

 I realized recently that I tend to take a bunch of photos of Ava while she is eating. This is not only due to the fact that it is one of the only times she sits (somewhat) still, but it is also because of all the funny faces she makes while enjoying her favorite foods. 

For example, I call this series of photos, "Discovering the Awesomeness of Hatch-mole"...

It is also really fun to watch Ava using utensils.  She often requests to use my fork or spoon instead of her own, which really makes things interesting.  

And if there is hummus involved, the spoon will be completely licked clean.

One of my other favorite things is watching Ava enjoy my favorite foods for the first time. We recently took her to the new Hopdoddy Burger Bar location in Dallas for her first cheeseburger and fries experience. To say that she loved it is a huge understatement. 

And she really loved the ketchup (she may have eaten more off her fingers than the fries). 

I can't blame her...it was our first trip to Hopdoddy, and everything was ridiculously good. We even splurged on green chile queso fries and sangritas. Worth every calorie. 

Ava also thoroughly enjoyed her first cup of frozen yogurt. In fact, a little TCBY was just what she needed to make her feel better during a lovely bout of croup. 

It doesn't get much sweeter than that.

About Me

My name is Catherine, but most of my friends call me Cat. I was born and raised in Austin, went to TCU, and ended up in Dallas for law school (where Josh and I met). I decided that being an attorney was not my cup of tea and pursued a career in legal marketing. I am now a mother of two attempting to balance family with a full-time job, which is always an adventure. I love: my sweet babies, handsome husband, very large family, and fabulous friends; trying new restaurants; wine; TCU football; holidays; cooking; The Bar Method; pajamas; Topo Chico; reading; coffee; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows and podcasts; trivia; French 75s; Pinterest; cheese boards; The Ticket; dancing; Sprinkles cupcakes; The Texas Rangers; fresh flowers; thunderstorms; naps; Tex-Mex; the Texas Hill Country; porch-sitting; ranch dressing; throwing parties; and my job. I hate: working-mom guilt; snakes; heights; waking up early; ignorant people; stomach bugs; paper cuts; green fruit; snoring; bad hair days; the sound of people eating (Misophonia); scary movies; bad drivers; pulpy OJ; trimming baby fingernails; and Miracle Whip. That pretty much sums it up.
