Girls Weekend in Austin

For Melissa’s 40th Birthday we decided to meet in Austin and have some crazy girl time.  Watch out Austin, here we come!

Lisa and I have this tradition of dressing up to meet up with Melissa.  We’ve dressed up as Neo & Trinity from the Matrix as well as Nacho Libre and Nun.

We couldn’t mess with such a fun tradition, so this time we dressed up as one of Melissa’s favorite TV personalities; Beth & Dog the Bounty Hunter.

We completely lucked out as it was the Big Ass Biker Parade in Austin that weekend and so we were surrounded by motorcycles.  We couldn’t have planned a better photo op!  {{bwaahaa!}}

Needless to say Melissa was completely taken by surprise!

We decided to start our weekend off right with some food and shopping!  We ate at the Cheesecake Factory and then headed over to Ross and TJ Max since we never have time to brows these stores at home.

I finally spent my $50 gift card I won from Tim Gunn at Fabric Care University. I got several new shirts to wear at EVO.

After discount shopping we decided to check out makeup and they had a “world renowned” make up artist from NARS doing make overs.  Um, duh count us in!

Melissa originally just wanted a semi-smokey eye but she got the entire NARS make over!  That dude was hysterical and livened up our evening.  He told us to make sure to “cab it” after going out that night.  With his accent it took us a minute to figure out what he was saying to us Mormon girls.  {{teehee}}

The next day we got pedi’s, watched a movie, shopped some more, ate, and ended the night at Pete’s Dueling Piano Bar.  It was a crazy fun time.

Especially with these two crazy ladies.  Although I think our waitress was seriously annoyed that we weren’t drinking.  We left her a big tip to try and compensate. {{poor thing}}

The next day was also full of adventure as we rode Segways!

Yep, that’s right!  We took a tour of Austin on Segways.  Dude, we ROCKED those bad boys.

It took me a while to get my Segway legs, because the thing doesn’t have any brakes!!  As clumsy as I am, I knew that was a recipe for disaster.   Luckily, I picked it up rather quickly and couldn’t let Lisa show me up.  

We ended the weekend with new inside jokes and memories that we’ll never forget.  I just adore these two women and feel so blessed to have them in my life.
