CANNOT CONTAIN EXCITEMENT.
I get to go back to Texas today, y’all! I have been counting down to this weekend for so long now, and the last week of anticipation has been killer. I’m so happy it’s finally here. After work, Eric and I will be making our way to O’Hare to catch a flight to Houston for a night at home.
The main occasion for this weekend’s visit is to celebrate the wedding of two beautiful friends, Michelle and Dalton. I have known Michelle for about 4 years now. She is an absolute gem, one of the most selfless and loving people on this planet. I am always so inspired by her faith and her incredible talent in writing – check out her blog here! We can’t wait to celebrate them.
Since this wedding is taking place a little outside of Austin, Eric and I get to drive into the city early on Saturday morning and reunite with my sister and some of our best friends! I’m pretty sure my immediate reunion with these girls will just consist of a lot of screaming and jumping up and down and being ridiculous – I would expect nothing less.
This will be the first time my two Austin roomies and I will all be in the same place since MAY – see our post-grad photo booth shot from then below. Same with some other wonderful college friends. So much has happened since then, how does time fly like this??
Sunday will be a long day of travel – first, a morning drive back to Houston, and then a flight back to Chicago that evening. It will all be 110% worth it though. Nothing makes me happier than being with the people most important to me and traveling! So, spending my time, money, and energy on things that combine those two is really a no brainer.
I’m definitely going to try and squeeze in a bit of Longhorn tailgating on Saturday, but for sure some yummy Tex-Mex, before heading off to the wedding that afternoon. I can already taste the queso and margs…
On another note, isn’t that print at the start of the post just adorable?? I found it at Printable Wisdom’s Etsy shop. I think I’ll be ordering one real soon!
Happy weekend, friends! Texas, we’re coming for you.
