I didn't get to see much of New Mexico, being on the highway going 80 mph and all made it a little difficult for sight seeing. What I did see I was quite taken with. The mountains (or were they hills?), had beautiful striations and the colors were magnificent, even the sky seemed more blue. I want to make sure that I get a chance to go back one day. The ride has been oddly exhausting, who knew sitting on your rump for 11 hours at a stretch, Twittering and listening to podcasts could be so draining?  I have been trying to take snap shots as we are driving and have been uploading them to Instagram.  I rarely use Twitter or Instagram, but I usually work from home and find that I don't have a lot to Tweet whilst sitting at my desktop, 'oh, just spent 8 hours on Pinterest, uhm, just kidding, kinda." You see not as exciting. If you want to see what it looks like in Mayflower, Arkansas or off the highway in Memphis, than I'm your girl. You can visit me on Instagram here. Speaking of Instagram, I could be a little late to this party but I found these very cool Photoshop actions that mimic the filters you get from the Instagram app. It's fun to play with and I especially like that you can use on non-square images.  I used the 'Earlybird' filter on the images above, I think it does a pretty impressive job of replicating the app  You can get your own set of Photoshop actions here. I'm in Memphis tonight and believe it or not will be in North Carolina tomorrow.  I can't wait to start looking for a place to live!

P.S. Yesterday in Amarillo the food options were pretty scarce, we could have eaten at a Chili's (or Denny's), I opted for a restaurant called Fiesta something or other--totally inedible. Tonight though Memphis had a P.F. Chang's I felt like I was at a 5 star restaurant, I have never ever been happier to see a chain restaurant in my life. To say the food was delicious would be an understatement, it was like a delicacy, ambrosia from the Gods. After two days of eating suspect food a P.F. Chang's was like finding a gold bouillon bar on the sidewalk, just rapturous. Just wanted to share.
