Favorite drink of the night "Pepperita"- Treaty Oak Platinum Rum, Fresh Lime, Jalepeno, Topo Chico
This is how our day looked on Friday. Kelly and I packed that morning before the drive... Typical. The drive to Austin is always fun and we were especially excited this time because we have never been to TXSC. We made our routine stop to Buc-ees for snacks and to stretch out our legs, blasted the early to mid 90s, sang out loud/off key and took tons of photos. If you have never stopped at a Buc-ees, I suggest you do it and do it big. It's like road trip snack heaven! We grabbed waters, Buc-ees southwest trail mix and peanut butter yogurt pretzels. Soo bad and so goooooooooooood.
Once we got there we checked in, turned in our swap items, then we went to grab a drink at La Condesa
. I saw Josh Hartnett
here once upon a time... so this place always holds a special place in my heart. It was Kelly's first time, and I think she fell in love with it, even with out the stud muffin. After our drinks and planning what workshops we wanted to go to we headed to Lulu's Style Swap which was a crazy fun mad house. Everyone left with two swap items and a book originally owned by another blogger. All the items were tagged with the original owners name and blog so you could look them up when you got home. To us, this was most successful meet and greet deal we've ever been to.
We ended the night meeting up with our dainty lady friends Elsie + Emma from ABM
, Katie from Skunkboy Creatures
, and all of their stud muffins (Jacob, the stud muffin club missed you). It was fun from the moment we sat down with them. Meetings like this, along with all our other run-ins throughout the weekend are why we enjoy blogging so much. The night was fun, sweaty (thank God we kept the drinks flowing), loud, full of energy, good company and ended way too soon.
Other blog friends we were excited about seeing/hanging/meeting at the swap.
