So, today I’m flying to Austin, Texas!
I’m super excited because I’ve while never been to Austin before, I’ve always had this strange obsession with the state of Texas as a whole. Maybe it’s because my dad is from there…or because my grandpa got kicked out of A&M for punching a guy in the nose in the forties–I just don’t know.
Actually, it’s probably just because I love sweet tea and pulled pork with my heart and soul. Yep, that’s it.
Hi dad! I heart you.
Anyways, the reason I’m going is pure vacation! Almanzo is from there and we are visiting his family, his college and his old stomping grounds. If you see me looking awkward and sweating profusely in an Aggie shirt at the game on Saturday, please say a friendly hello.
Oh, and tonight I’m hosting my first blog event at a popular bar downtown. I couldn’t believe when so many people actually said they really wanted to come!!! We are going to drink cocktails, eat tacos and talk about life as we know it. I’m psyched and naturally used that excuse to buy a new Anthropologie dress. Priorities, people…priorities.
Almanzo has (semi) agreed to be official camera man for the event so I’ll be back with fun photos of my first night in the Lonestar State—stay tuned!
Mmmmm barbecue. We will meet again in Texas. I will find you!!!
