... and a giveaway!

After giving it much thought, I come to you with some sad news today. I will be putting A Fuller Life on hold for the indefinite future to concentrate on Elizabeth Lanier Designs. Between work and other things I haven't had alot of free time lately, and the time I do have I would like to be devoting to ELD. This time of year is crazy for me and I don't want to leave you hanging with wishes of regular posts! I am hoping to be back regularly after the holiday season, and who knows, maybe some in between now and then. 

While you are busy not reading my blog, checkout some of my favorites (other than the ones in the side bar):

This fall I'm hoping to invest in a longer faux fur vest. Living in South Texas, I find myself reaching for my fur vests during the colder months to add extra warmth without much bulk. I love the idea of the longer version to pair with skinny pants and a sweater or blouse.  I've seen a ton while looking around, but pulled a few of my faves above! (I also really like the Rachel Zoe and Kenzie ones)

Looks like Houston will be getting some of my favorite Austin spots in the next few weeks. CultureMap reports that we will soon be getting a Torchy's Tacos, Tiff's Treats, and as we all know, Uchi. I'm pretty excited about Torchy's as I haven't exactly found my go to cheap, laid back, Mexican lunch spot yet.

First rumored to arrive this summer, then in October and now set for November, Uchi is said to be taking over the old Felix's, and I can barely wait another day.

Already in Dallas and Austin, Tiff's closed the details on funding to open five new locations in Houston in 2012. Hopefully somewhere near me! 

Definitely opening up in my neighborhood is Torchy's. They are taking the spot of short-lived Gratefull Taco at Shepherd and Fairview. They should be open in less than three months!
