Weekend Getaway: Houston Edition
by Elizabeth & Emily
To be quite honest, we both get a little carried away when planning weekend getaways. For instance, Elizabeth and Sarah’s trip to Houston began with a quick email to check on potential dates. Per usual, once that date was found, the “quick email” morphed into a ridiculous, multi-colored, !!!! and OMG filled, email banter extravaganza planning our 48 hours together down to the minute. We are totally ridiculous. Don’t you love it?
What we never admit during our weeks of planning, is that we could never possibly make it through our list of things to do, people to see, restaurants to try, doodling to do. If we did, there would be no sleeping (not that we actually do sleep when friends are in town!), we would have to speed eat, we could barely say hello to other friends, and there would be little to no time for champagne. Unacceptable.
The good news is that we are way ahead of schedule for preparing for the next adventure down to Houston. Until then, we’ll share the things we did, the things we’d still like to do, and the fabulous memories we made!
