Pretty sure I just died and went to heaven...

...because seriously, Texas weather??? I mean, SERIOUSLY?

It is STILL gorgeous here.

I'm trying to be cool and not totally lose my shit over this, but you guys, yesterday we hung out all day long with the windows and doors open. ALL DAY LONG.

Excuse the caps. Clearly, I am 100% totally losing my shit over this.

I don't even know what this means (what does this mean?<--Where's my double rainbow guy?!). You know how when summer is crazy long and people are all, 'Oh, maybe this means we'll have an insanely long winter,' or something like that? Being gifted with this California-like weather for a solid 2 weeks in a row either means that FINALLY the people upstairs have taken a shine to our little LoneStar state and decided to only be total assholes with the climate for 11.5 months out of the year, or that we're being teased with this ridiculously beautiful weather only to be beaten back into submission with some wicked natural disaster. Or something. Running in this on Saturday morning made me so happy and I was actually able to run the whole 5K. My 5K time is going backward with each race I run, which makes no sense at all, but this is the first 5K that I have run with no walking breaks start to finish. Granted, my pace was pretty slow, but I will claim until the death that it was due to 35,000 people running down Allen Parkway at the same time. Yeah - 35 THOUSAND people. It was a cluster-f* for sure, but it was so awesome to see so many people out running for the boobies. After the run we went to Cafe Brasil on Westheimer and Dunlavy and I had the best huevos rancheros ever. Sarah and I met up with Heather, another girlfriend from TLU, and sat out on the patio and sipped ice tea while the day warmed up. Normally, my liquor-lovin' self would have been drinking mimosas, but it was only the beginning of what was going to be a very long day, so I held back.

Sarah and I hauled ass up to our side of town and did a quick wardrobe change (also, showers, because...ew) before heading to The Woodlands to meet up with our girl Lindsey to celebrate her bachelorette night. Our group stayed at the Avia Woodlands and OH MY GOD, this hotel was ridiculous. We were in the Presidential Suite which looked like this...

Pretty sweet, right? We hung out there for a while then went to dinner and out to the bars where we danced our asses off and proceeded to get nice and sloshy. We crawled (like, seriously...the bachelorette literally crawled out of the elevator) back to the suite around 4am. The next morning the suite looked like a scene out of The Hangover, but with less tigers and babies, and this time with more wheelchair. Yeeeeah, one of the girls was in a wheelchair the night before as a result of a pretty major surgery she had on Thursday. She is the sister of the groom though, so she was a trooper and showed up and sipped coffee all night. We were quite the group!

Sunday Saul and I grilled and sat out on the deck with some beers. The weather was amazing again and we listened to the Raiders lose to the Texans (ugh). Minus the Texans' win it was a great weekend!

Have a great week, everyone!
