Weekend Update!

Hello!! I'm so excited to link up with Sami and Leeann again! 
It's been a crazy two weeks and I have a lot to share.
On Valentine's Day evening Andrew and I flew to his hometown, Austin. We were greeted by his parents who immediately took us to Whataburger. YUM!
The whole weekend was incredible, from the company to the food:
We went to Home Slice, Amy's, sat outside drinking at Shady Grove, and Threadgill's...and toured the capitol building! Oh and we started our registry (not pictured haha)!!
We celebrated engagements with friends over delicious brunch and insanely incredible BBQ at Freedman's! If you go to Austin you MUST go to Freedman's!
AND I even met up with a fellow blogger, Kelly from Miss MP!
Kelly is such a sassy sweetheart! It was so amazing to finally meet one of my very favorite bloggers and Twitter pros in person! I can't wait to return to Austin and hang out again! Go check out her blog!!

Andrew's Mom also introduced me to her hair stylist and wowsah he is amazing! Look at what he did to my hair!

Please if you have the chance, go to Bryan at Shag in Austin. He worked wonders on my hair and made me feel easy feat!
As you can imagine, it was rather tough getting back into the swing of things. Luckily work was really fun and busy. Plus, I met up with a couple of friends Thursday night for The Everygirl's 1 year anniversary soiree! 
West Elm hosted the amazing team behind The Everygirl and oh my was it a party!

It was so fantastic to chat with Danielle and congratulate she and her sweet co-editor Alaina on their impressive success. Seriously, if you haven't read The Everygirl you are missing out!

Plus, my friends and I had fun looking around West Elm and posing for the camera. I also got to catch up with Susan from A Little Ray of Sunshine!

By the time the weekend rolled around I was exhausted from all of the fun!

We hosted Andrew's aunt and cousin for a delicious meal Friday night. I documented my domesticity:

I woke up Saturday to a nice surprise: Spring Training with the best pitcher ever on the mound! 
(Stephen Strasburg for the Nats, in case you were wondering. He was inured last season.)

The rest of the day was full of laundry and lounging, lounging and laundry. I finally caught up on my blog reading, too. We also started our hunt for a photographer. Ugh. 

Sunday was another fun day! Daniela and I went to see Silver Linings Playbook and then Andrew and I went to our neighbors' for an Oscar Party! I lost all bets and owe Andrew dinner...and we owe our neighbors dinner, too! Sheesh! Good thing "dinner" to all of us mean wings and beer at The Third Rail down the street. Phew. Dodged an expensive bullet!

Well! That's about it! haha sorry for the super long post, but I love to document so I can read later. Heck yeah, memories!

How have you been?
