This was the second consecutive thanksgiving holiday spent away from my family. Last year, I was in Arizona and missed all the holidays and a few family weddings. Although I chose to be away from them this year (I went to the TCU @ UT game), I was sad to not share in the feasting day and football watching with the family. I did however, get to spend some great time with the boyfriend, hang out with friends from school and watch my FROGS dominate the ‘Horns. Honestly, it was a great weekend especially considering last year’s circumstances.
Some things from the weekend:
Boyfriend and I stayed at the Hotel Casulo in Austin. A friend recommended it to me and we got a great deal on hotels.com. I’m particular to the SFA InterContinental in Austin because the rooms are HUGE! But I really liked Casulo and would probably stay there again. Located just south of downtown, it was easy to get around with a quick hop on to I35.
On game day, we hung out with some college friends of mine who I don’t get to see very often. Tripp and I both love college football so I was happy to share the experience with him. We joined my good friend at his tailgate then went to Scholz’s to meet up with my old roommate and her family. I hadn’t seen Wendy in almost two years which is ridiculous. My artistic roommate moved to NYC after graduation and is pursuing her dream which, is amazing. Check out some of her photos: Wendy13ird. We had a great time with her and her family.
Then…it was game time. The Frogs battled the Horns in a great game, and ended up winning! I was so excited and exhausted from the day that I think I was a little delirious by the end of the game. We had a great time and I’m so happy for my Frogs.
Tripp and I spent the rest of the weekend taking it easy, spending some needed quality time together, doing some shopping and celebrating my upcoming birthday. The boy even bought me a gorgeous Michael Kors watch.
I could not be more thankful for this wonderful Thanksgiving. It was exactly what I needed…GO FROGS!
