austin: all the other fun things

first things first – SURPRISE I’M GOING TO BiSC!!! hello new friends, i can’t wait to meet you! and to all of my 2011 loves, i can’t wait to see your faces again! a big tackle hug to nicole for making it happen and for letting me crash the party late in the game.

now back to regular scheduled blogging…

besides the race, which was obviously the highlight of the weekend, i had the best time hanging out with nicole, ameena, ashley, ashley, nicole, linda, and anita (and treavor! and christa! {major props to christa for running the full marathon!}). we packed a lot into a few short days, including a few meals, expoing, chinese fire drill showers, “the stick” sessions, walks around austin, and as for me and ameena, marathon viewing of klassy kardashians, introducing her to downton abbey, and the best pancakes i’ve ever had at kerbey lane cafe.

a few random photos from the weekend:

  1. Thanks for the song recommendations! I just downloaded “Cough Syrup” by Young the Giant. I had never heard of them until I watched this week’s Glee episode, but I like their sound. I’ll definitely have to check out “My Body”!
