Every year my roommate from college is sent to a conference in the States for work.
She is from the Bahamas so this has become a super convenient way to see her.
Its our tradition now to meet up - wherever she is- at the end of her conference.
Two years a go it was Vegas, last year San Diego and this year it was in Austin, Texas.
I was so excited because I've heard so much about Austin and couldn't wait to go there.
The extra special treat this year was that our other best buddy from college could also join us.
It was no small feat- I had to fly for over five hours, and she had to drive (leaving FIVE boys at home- four littles, (one of them is still nursing) and one hubby).
We made it happen though cause we love our Bahama Mama so much, and it was so fun to hang out as the three amigos once again. It had been 7 years since the last time we were all together!
Fair Warning: you're about to see a lot of selfies, food and drinks!
|I haven't had a chance to fly like this in a long time.|
It may have been coach, but without kids it may also have been first class as far as I was concerned!
|starting the trip off on the right foot!|
|my girlfriend told me about a drink called the RanchWater|
Something like Mexican mineral water with tequila and lots of lime
these drinks went down way too easy
|together again at the Saddle Ranch|
|late night drinking and late night donuts compliment each other nicely|
|we stayed at the Omni downtown so making our way back was pretty easy|
|next day we did a bike tour of the city and riverwalk|
stumbled upon these tourists along the train tracks
|Moonshine for lunch was delish!|
|nothing like a bubbly pit stop|
|had to try some food trucks on Congress|
|when you wait for two hours for your bbq you can get a little Han-gry|
side note- this plate was NOT all for me ;)
|next door was having a crawfish boil, and for this Louisiana native I just couldn't resist!|
|those suckers didn't stand a chance|
|our last night at Gloria's|
so much fun
I'm going to miss these ladies!
Until next year!
