The Heat! The Conference! The Shopping! Part I

Okay, so remember how I thought Texas would be uber-hot?

Yeah. It was.

Like, sweltering.

Not that the girls and I let it put a damper on our weekend. The heat may have made us glisten (read: melt) a bit (read: a ton), and the GINORMOUS crickets may have freaked us out a little (read: almost peed my pants a few times) but we didn't let either one slow us down!

With Kristin, our fantabulous hostess at the wheel, KM and I were on the move!

Besides seeing cactus along the road (seriously, cactus in the WILD...wish I would've gotten a photo of THAT),

we visited the lake:

went to the Blue Bell Ice Cream Factory (really cool):

went antique shopping in the precious little town of Bourne:

where we saw these beauties:

and these:

and had lunch in this cute little cafe:

saw this apparently very alive but sleeping owl
(I was about to touch him when someone thankfully warned us they'd seen him move and he was alive)

And all of that was just Thursday!

I'm still trying to get caught up on photos and writing and reading, and you know, STUFF, so stay tuned for The Heat! The Conference! The Shopping! Part II...which will be the San Antonio part of our trip...

What about you? Any fun trips you've taken this summer? I'm a photo tour addict, so feel free to leave me links in the comments. I love living through other people (hello, I'm a book addict!).

Hope this post finds you keeping cool...wherever you might be!


  1. Look at you three! Have I mentioned how envious I am? :)

    1. It really was SO COOL getting to meet bloggy people in person, and I was surprised how well we REALLY knew each other already too, you know?

      And I'm looking foward to the day we all attend the same conference! We missed each other in Texas by like weeks. LOL.

      It'll happen. I have faith. :)

  2. looks like you had a great time! The lake looks beautiful!!

    1. Hi, Buffi!


      Thanks for stopping by, the lake was gorgeous! (Though we didn't have time to actually swim this round...maybe next time!)

  3. Aww.... I'm so jealous I missed all of that fun! But had super fun shopping! I can't wait to see you guys again! :)
