Con mis chicas favoritas

   I had a super fun, action packed, fantabulous weekend! I just realized I got to see ALL my favorite Austin ladies too! After my Stitch Lab class, I drove over to Mary's house to talk shop. She is a master on the sewing machine. I'm always greeted by her three lovely pugs (Bebe, Skeet and Dixie) and then I saw her brand new dress form. I'm so jealous! I'm nowhere near that level but I already want all the goodies! I love this woman. She shared some fresh juice right out of her juicer and it was amazing. She helped me come up with a list of sewing must-haves. Thanks Mary!
Me and Mary a few years ago. We were in some bowling alley, being mean to stupid boys.  I love this picture!
   Later on, I met up with my friend Leslie for dinner and drinks. I finally paid off my damn car so I definitely wanted to celebrate. I feel like such an adult! We went to  Black Star Co-op for dinner. I really appreciate it when restaurants have malt vinegar as a condiment. It's a must have for fish and chips. Good food, good beer and great conversation then we headed over to Lala's for bloody marys. I love girls who love bloody marys. :D The pics we took there were way too dark and way too smokey so here's us on her head shot picture day where she pulled in into the shot. :)
Isn't she gorgeous!? She's going to start a blog pretty soon. I can't wait!
   On Saturday morning, James and I dropped my car off at Sears for and oil change and then went to Texican Cafe for brunch. Sears calls to tell me my car is all kinds of fucked up and it needs this and that and my oil change quickly turned into over $600 in repairs. Ai yi yi! Oh well, she's mine now and I plan on pampering my baby so I ok'd it. I was out of debt for only 14 hours. Oh well... I wasn't going to let it put me in a bad mood. I bought all kinds of sewing goodies at Hancock Fabrics, picked up my spruced up car and hurried home to work on my gifts before going to Taylor's house. I love Taylor's house. She has the perfect space for entertaining and her and husbear Matt are always amazing hosts. Her sister Taryn was in town with her boyfriend so Tay wanted to introduce her to her close friends. She wanted to do a photo booth style set up. They turned out so cute!
Taryn's bf Brian, my love James, husbear Matt and Gabe.
"Smile boys.... with teeth!"
Gabe and Megan. These two are so fucking cute! I love them. :) 
Burke was vogueing and gave some lessons on Jamaican vocabulary. 
   The food was so good! Dominique and Burke brought this cheese plate and James and I made roasted brussel sprouts and his specialty, Santa Maria tri-tip.
This was a previous tri-tip James made but it was equally amazing. Dominique and I actually took the beefy juice and rubbed it on our gums like cocaine. Haha! It was so good.
Taylor's wine bottle gift bag I made for her. 
My handsome man. :)
They're so sweet

We played Apples to Apples. I really need to buy this game. 
It was such a nice evening. After the game we all sat out in the yard and watched the lightening storm. On Sunday, Kari came over after work and I made dinner for us. More brussel sprouts!
In 2010 at an Austin Film Bash. I have the best time with this girl when we go out. We go ALL OUT. ;p We're planning on doing a Weirdo Ambush downtown soon. Let's do it Kari!
