The Heart of Texas (Part 1)

Last weekend (as I'm sure you've heard) I took a trip down to see my friend Shalyn and Erica. I'm telling you, I couldn't have had a better time. We could have just sat on the couch all weekend and I would have been content.
Don't worry y'all, we didn't just sit on the couch!

How lucky am I? I got to spend the entire weekend with these two lovelies!

Okay... let's start from the beginning!


The anticipation was killing me as I exited the plane. I headed down the long escalator, with the though, "I've gotta get this on the FLIP!" 
Shay had texted me earlier that I should look for a girl that looked like Waldo. So I slowly descend to the baggage claim where I see Shay standing and giggling! We run towards each other and hug! Instant friends, but we already knew that!

We get my bag and head to get some food with Drew Drew Hot Pants.





The we had a brilliant idea that we should dress up like a Gorilla and a Banana when we pick up Erica from the airport! So off to the Halloween store we go!



Oh and then we decided we needed a sign saying HOWDY! because that is the only proper way to welcome someone to Texas for the first time. So we went to the craft store. We made it out with iron-on letters, figures, and decals and BRIGHT ass yellow zip-ups. BLINDING. 

Go Blog, or Go Home. I can't get over how awesome we are.

After being all crafty-n-shit, we got all dolled up and headed to Baby A's for a purple margarita or two. P.s. the LIMIT is two. We live life on the edge. 




To end the night, we talked my friend Jason into starting a blog, and then headed to his house to play a little rock band. He gave us a tour of his mansion and Shay and I just about DIED! Two roof top patios, amazing kitchen, and a big ol' mancave! 

It was such an amazing first day in Texas. The second day gets even better... can you believe it!

Have you had any Blates? Tell me how they went!

OH GREAT!... here comes the part where I just about crawl out of my skin with jealousy.

I like how there was a good bit of cursing in this post. A "shit" here and "damn" there feels just like a hug sometimes.

If there's a pic of you guys dressed as a monkey and banana, I'll print it, frame it, and hang it on my wall.

Is you Austin friend single? inquiring minds want to know. Ok fine... I want to know.

Whitney @ EHFAR said...

Hilary Ayers-Kurtz said...

Gentri said...

angie on maui said...

I've been loving the collective posts and tweets about this famous blate! And if I am being honest, maybe a little bit jealous, too. ;) You guys look like SUCH a fun bunch...good times and lots of laughs. Now how about you all get on a plane and come to Maui for the weekend? :-D

Shay said...

First of all...Angie ^^^^^ HECK YES!? Maui here we comeeee!!!! :)

Gosh this makes me miss you already. This time last week I was getting ready for you to be here. Isn't that nuts? I miss you so much Sabrina! AHHHHHHHHHHH!

Love your post! I had mine written and no pics yet...and we seriously were word for word on a lot of it. Love it! Well, crap...now I have to reword mine. Bahaha.

Btw...that thing we talked about...AMAZING.

Lauren Nicole said...

How FUN! I am admitting to living vicariously through you after reading this post.. Can't wait for Day 2 :)

Rebeka said...

Unknown said...

How fun!! I'm an Austin girl...it would have been so fun to meet y'all! Mighty fine is a favorite around our house. Glad y'all had so much fun!!

Raven said...

I love and hate this post all at the same time. Number one, LOVE it cause you girls are just AWESOME. and HATE it CAUSE I AM SOOOO JEALOUS that I wasn't there. Trust me, no kids? I'd be sooo there. These pics are SOOOOOO cute! and those yellow zip-ups? BEST INVENTION EVER IN THE WHOLE ENTIRE WORLD. no joke. we need to like, start some kind of revolution with those and make sure all the coolest bloggers have them.

BUT, my most IMPORTANT question is...did you all talk about me when you where in Texas? Like, did my name come up? Was I at least involved in the gossip?????
