Fantastic Summer Holiday
This weekend I was in Austin to shoot one of my oldest friends wedding. The ceremony was all colors of beautiful. I cannot wait to show you the pictures because they go beyond description.
A couple of days before going down there I was on the phone with my other bestie’s (yes I have more than one BFF) roommate. He suggested that on Sunday we head out to Tacos and Tequila for brunch.
Let me tell you…
…BEST IDEA, EVER!
Yes, it was gringo brunch, but it was good. I LOVED the rice and potatoes… and don’t forget the made to order omelets. YUMMERS!
I wish I had taken more pictures of the food.
The best part about brunch? Hanging with my favorite people in the whole wide world while slamming down tequila shots and mimosas, while singing to 90’s hip hop and alternative music at the top of our lungs.
Only in Austin.
I would recommend EVERYONE hang out there!
After that I hung out at my mum’s house. Her place could really be featured in a magazine… perhaps next time I’m in town I’ll take pictures of it.
Later that evening we slammed down pizza and Malibu shots while watching bad reality shows. We played a Maxim dart drinking game while I took random pictures around my friends place. Yes, that is a Thor wallet!
Monday was the only calm day we had. I got to sleep in until 8:30 AM. I tried to catch up on all my blogs I had been ignoring for the past month… but as soon as I got up the rest of the roomies came downstairs to talk. Soon my bestie’s whole family came over and made lunch for all of us. Three generations of all under one roof. It’s always funny to see how other people’s families interact. My best friend has a great family. Her mom came over and cooked us all spaghetti while her abeulo (grandfather), whose about 85 mind you, came over and started repairing issues with her house, her brother mowed her yard, while abuela (grandmother) told us the funniest stories about the past. In fact her grandmother turned 81 today!
Happy Birthday Grandma Lopez!
I call her GLo.
Soon that left and we all said our goodbyes to her family.
I left about an hour after that, 2:30PM and it took about 4.5 hours to get back to Dallas. I was averaging about 42 miles per hour because it was No Refusal Weekend in Texas which meant State Troopers and local police alike were pulling people over left and right.
Nonetheless I had a fantastic holiday weekend.
How was yours?
