ladies night out


Last night I had the pleasure of meeting up with group of Austin's finest lady bloggers.

It was the first time I had met a couple of these women but 5 minutes into dinner, you would have thought we were old friends hosting a panty exchange. I am so grateful for world wide web and good ol' blog land. How else would I have ever met these fabulous chicks?

Bottom row: Leah, moi, Mallorie

Oh and to kick off the night my car was love tapped. When I told my husband over text (who was traveling for business) he was like what the heck is that? Well folks I was rear ended. Sounds way more dramatic then it really was because all it was was a little tap. Poor Austin hipster was shaking in his little chef academy outfit. Luckily we were starting to accelerate as he tapped me but his little Honda Fit made no mark on my SUV. Leah and Amanda we with me so we were sure to investigate the damage and get his digits/info but no harm was done. And then I almost ran over a dude on a bike...not my night for driving :-). 

More shots from the night

My girl Leah...please tell me you saw her tutorial for pen-15 cake pops?!

I am not your typical blogger and I love using the flash on my DSLR :-)

Show us your heel stretch Shalyn...

Mallories husband, Dave Owens, is playing a show at SXSW tomorrow night...check it out yo!

Happy hour turned into 3 hours of girlie fun. A highlight of the night was our hipster mustache owning waiter asking me if my foot long camera lens was used for anything else (wink wink). I immediately exclaimed "I'M MARRIED!" and probably blushed like Ashlee Simpson lip-synching on SNL. Cute right?


Before signing off I want to share a great post by Jenni from Story of My Life with some blog tips she took away from the Texas Style Council meetup this weekend. I think the important take away from this post is to focus on creating your own content (vs. curating- grabbing pics from the internet, etc.). You should really go read it :-)

Have a great Thursday y'all!

Gotta love the hipsters. They flow free here in Seattle; everywhere you look. I swear where there are hipsters, there is horrible driving. I had some funny driving encounters today...someone pulled up next to me, honked, and took my picture with his Iphone. So STRANGE.

Looks like a fun time with the girls! I love using my flash too, apparently it's not the thing to do? Oh well!

Heather said...
