So um, it's been awhile? I'm thinking I may have lost any readers I had when I stopped blogging regularly. But I hope there's someone out there still.
Seeing as how I haven't posted since July 3rd, it's about time I caught up on my adventures with a little summer recap. So let's see...
In July I...
Took Billy to check out a nearby town called Georgetown, with the cutest town square. We happened to visit during one of their Saturday Market days, in which there were vendors and a sort of craft/farmers market thing going on. We enjoyed shave ice, and had lunch at Burger University. I ordered the fried chicken sandwich and oh Lordy, was it good.
Hopefully those videos will play correctly, if not, sorry! Do know Billy's family were so emotionally excited to see him back in CA for the first time since he moved to TX.
In August I...
Started a new job at West Salon in Austin. It's the first time in five years I have worked for a salon, instead of renting a booth and running my own business. It's a brand new place, with a lot of potential and opportunities for growth. It's different, but good. The only thing I am having trouble with is the hours- I work five days a week now, and suddenly have way less time to putz around or do my thing, so I have to budget my time and make it work. One awesome positive is that working in a salon again, I am given ample opportunities to wear a lot of cute dresses! The one below is LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's.
Spent Labor Day weekend in the Detroit Metro area, visiting another blog friend turned in real life friend, Megan, for her wedding! It was seriously so much fun to hang out with her and also other blog friends, Julie and Erika! When I arrived on Thursday, we ran a bunch of errands, had the rehearsal. Friday was the big day, with hours of bridal hair and makeup prep, then the beautiful wedding at which Roary, the Detroit Lions mascot, showed up to the rehearsal! Saturday we did a little sigh-seeing, and even made it to a German beer garden in Ann Arbor. Sunday Megan introduced me to the most amazing fall tradition- a cider mill with fresh donuts and apple cider slushes! Texas needs to get on this tradition. So good.
The Ruins at Kellum Valley Farm. The fun part of this wedding was that RoseAnne is the cousin of some of my good friends from CA, so I had the pleasure of their company all weekend. Seeing my friend Sarah's daughter Cameryn is always fun, too.
I ran the Oatmeal's Beat the Blerch virtual race a week early, because the next week I was on vacation, happily letting the Blerch run rampant. If you're not familiar with what the Blerch is, you should definitely read The Oatmeal's comic about why he runs.
And that concludes my summer recap! If you read through all of this, you are awesome and I love you lots! Leave me a comment letting me know there are more than crickets around these parts. Also, please follow me on Blog Lovin so you don't miss out on possible posts!
