Yep, I flew by my lonesome and had the house to myself for the first time in I can't even remember. Ross took the girls to Sausage Fest 2013. What is that? Well, it's a weekend where the guys take all the meat from the deer killed during hunting season and make boudin and sausage. As tempted as I was to go, I decided that I would skip out on the testosterone activities. Do ya blame me? I didn't think so.
So, what does one do with all this free time and solitude? I will tell ya.
I went straight to Target and snatched up this tassel satchel. I saw it on Instagram from @targetdoesitagain and knew I had to make it mine. If you don't follow these two girls, please do so immediately. They post stuff that they find at Target and it will change your life forever.
Then I strolled over to Old Navy and got more excited than one should over a black and white gingham top. Finally! I have been looking for one forever. The shirt I wanted at J.Crew was sold out and so happy it was. I ended up getting this top for a much better price tag.
Next, I popped into get my nails and toes did and died after I secretly snapped a picture of the nail lady making funny faces. This is NOT the only picture of said nail lady saved on my phone. She was on a roll. And yes, those are scrubs she is wearing. See her friend in the back? Yep, she's got them on too.
Flying solo gave me some time to clean out my closet. It is madness in my guest bedroom. I plan on selling this stuff in the next week or so. If you live in the Austin area and are interested, lemme know.
Saturday I headed to S. Congress Ave. to meet up with a few bloggers for a blate. We met at Doc's Bar and Grill and I immediately order a Bloody Mary. Holy delicious.
I was happy to finally meet Kristen. She is not only a style blogger, but she is a mom too. We have a lot in common and she is just as sweet and gorgeous in person. I am a bad, bad blogger and didn't get any other pictures from the meet up. There were about 12-13 of us and it was really fun getting to know the girls. Thanks, Jenn, for putting this together. Looking forward to the next one.
It was my neighbor's birthday Saturday night. Man, do my hood peeps know how to throw a shin-dig. I am still laughing about all that went down. It was a memorable night to say the least. It's a wonderful thing to be able to walk home from a party and just crawl right into bed.
And then came Sunday. A day of rest. I slept in and prepared myself for reality to head home. Although it was glorious to have a few days to myself, I missed my "reality" dearly and glad that the noise and ruckus are back.
So, what were you guys up to this weekend? According to Instagram, there were blogging blates all over Texas this weekend. Seeing all the pictures made me smile that this crazy little world can bring so many people together in real life.
Happy week, friends!
