Soaking Up The Sun

Our cousin Misty is coming down from Dallas today and with her she bares friends, a man friend, Matt and his friend who is also a man but I forgot his name. Yah, names have never been my strong suit but having fun definitely is and this weekend  is gonna be one big explosion of fun right after the other.

Fun in the Sun

This is Matt and behind him lies Misty. She’s changing because she accidentally sat on a cherry and now there’s sweet cherry juice all over her bum only it doesn’t look like sweet cherry juice but more like fresh menstrual juice. Luckily, Misty is one prepared chica and brought along an extra suit and a suit case full of hair products. You want it, she has it tucked away in that bag of hers. I promise you she does.

This is Matt’s friend, whom I will refer to as Minnesota, because that’s where he’s from. He’s loving life right now, as he should be.

This Is How We Do It

Seriously, my arms are buffer just from drinking from this big ass cup all weekend long. Misty and I found them at the the speedy stop and had to have them. You only need to worry about one fill with this bad boy; that’s the beauty of it. Yes it’s a beautiful thing. Also if you bring it back to any speedy shop you can fill it up for only a buck.

Riding the Noodle

Who knew riding a noodle could be this much fun?

Good Times

Life is good right about now. I love taking our boat out!

Me & My Sancho

This is my favorite time of day, when the sun is just about to set and everything looks so real.

Sunset

Not the prettiest sunset but the lake and alcohol definitely tells us differently.

The Visitors

The sun is bidding us farewell and I guess that’s our cue to get the fuck outta here before we have to find our way back in the dark.

My Captain Morgan

Besides, we gotta save some energy for the river tomorrow. Can’t go there wait go there hung over or wasted. I mean, it’s not like we had mimosas on the way up or anything.  All I’m saying is Misty has traditions and traditions are traditions.

Floating the River

Today is my first time floating the river and I couldn’t be more excited. I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time now. It just that every time I’ve been invited for some reason or another I’m not able to make it. Floating the river also happens to be on my Austin Bucket List so today I can finally check this one off.

Misty and Matt

Man whoever is running the show has to be laughing all the way to the bank everyday. There were thousands of people out today, each one with a rented floating device that runs about $30 each, then there’s parking and I think if you bring your own floaty you have to pay admission, that’s what I heard anyway, don’t quote me on that.

Ray and Minnesota

Ray warned me to not bring my Canon G9. What kind of monster would wanna separate an Asian and her camera? Well my Sancho was right. I mean, I put the camera in a zip lock bag and that bag in another zip lock bag. It brings me great sadness and sorrow to let you know that these will be the last of the photos taken from my G9. May she RIP. I will always love you. I’m gonna take some time to pour some for my homey right now.

Stolen Photo

This photo I stole from some site. Hey just cause you write all over it doesn’t mean I won’t take it.

Downtown Fun

We went bar hopping out on 6th St. and around later that night because that is where you take people when they visit. Misty has some friends out here so we met up with them.

Downtown Fun

Oh yeah, Happy Anniversary babe. I love you.

Downtown Fun

Alright Misty is having too much fun and I’m upset because the shoes I wore are so not comfy and I was excited to wear them because I totally thought they were gonna be these comfy ass heels. Even walking in them was awkward for me. Stupid shoes.

What, no no Minnesota is totally fine. Carry on, carry on. Well that about ends our weekend. Told you it was a good one. The next day headed back to where they came from. Thanks guys. Well have to do it again.

Doughnuts @ Gourdough's

Alright, I have never been much of a doughnuts kind of gal. Yeah, I know weird coming from the queen of sweets. I do however commend whoever invented the doughnut because every time I was chastised for having cake in the morning my response was simply, “it’s no better than having doughnuts in the morning.”

Doughnuts @ Gourdough's

My friend Chad told me about this place and I just had to see for myself what all the hype was about. Gourdough’s is a food trailer nestled on a lot on South Lamar. That’s one of the many things I love about Austin, all the fabulous trailer park eatery’s this town has to offer. I think Ray and I came on the hottest day ever; no one was here. I mean seriously who wants to eat a hot fried doughnut smothered in sugary goodness on a hot ass summer day anyway? We do, that’s who bitches. After scanning the menu I instantly got turned on. They had doughnuts with bacon and maple syrup icing and  Canadian bacon with cream cheese & jalapeno jelly. Not that I would ever order either one of these but I’m just saying we’re not in Kansas anymore Toto.

Doughnuts @ Gourdough's

That’s it, Gourdough’s is officially added to my Austin Bucket List. Anyone that comes to Austin needs to try this place for themselves.
