Weekend Update.

{Link up with Join the Gossip, five30three, & Sami's Shenanigans}

Playing aunt while getting ready to go out ♥
So, I think last week I made some comment about being home for the long haul, and that no weekend trips were in my near future?

Well, I lied.

Sister's night out!

Hope you'll forgive me for that lie. Because this weekend trip was for a good cause. You see, my sister Jessica turned 23(!!) last week, and our schedules finally worked & we went out to celebrate in downtown Austin.

It was a night full of great food, terrible stand-up, and good old-fashioned bar hopping. And free champagne, booty dancing-watching, introducing my sister to "night life" (since she's been preggo since 21...), and just quality sister-time like that which you dream of. I'm lucky enough to have sisters that I not only love, but get along with and want to spend time with. ♥

This was her first time out to a bar as an "adult" -- Coyote Ugly was her fave bar. Mine closed down :( ♥

Plus, when it was all over, we crashed at my mom's place (and yes, she was awake when we got home, just like high school), which meant homemade tortilla soup and hanging with my niece Sunday afternoon. She even gave me gas money before I headed back home. In a word: perfect.

I hope you had a great weekend too!

Stay tuned. Lots of fun coming up this week ♥
