Two weeks ago was ladies weekend to celebrate two of my best friends birthday. Trish and Mariah! Crazy these two are both Cancers, or water signs complete opposite of me. (Aquarius, air)
I met Trish as a freshman in college.
She was my first friend I made in college. I was really shy and quietly and she defiantly was not. Then we were both bio majors looking to join a sorority. I transferred after my first year but we stayed close and she’s always been there to help my through some hard times my family and I were having.
I met Mariah as a senior in high school and she was a freshman.
Our high school boyfriends were in the same class and close friends. So when they would hangout together we’d hangout. She quickly became like a little sister. Later she lived with me her senior year of high school my junior year of college. Just like Trish she has became unexpected friend that has always been there and become part of my family.
Back to ladies weekend!
The plan was for me to get off work early in Austin, meet Mariah in San Antonio. Then we’d take a MegaBus to Houston and meet Trish and my friend Annie.
Well, I got off work early and met Mariah in San Antonio. However, she was recovering from her actual birthday. So, change of plans. Started the afternoon off relaxing by the pool. Later we got our boots on and headed to Floores Country Store for an epic Gary Allen concert under the full moon!
The alternative plan was for Mariah and I to meet at the bus in the morning. I made it to the bus, Mariah didn’t. Oh well! I promised Trish I’d make it up there. So I boarded the bus by myself. $13 dollars bus trip with a/c outlets and wifi vs. driving my truck $80 a tank…driving about 3 hours!
I finally arrived in Houston just in time for a delicious brunch at Benjy’s followed by Happy Hour also at Benjy’s.
We’re definitely getting older, we all took an hour or so power nap/girl talk time before getting ready to paint the town red…well in this case blue. Yes, blue! Trish loves her themed parties. This year everyone had to wear blue, not just any color blue, patriotic blue!
Proof Rooftop Lounge with VIP bottle service for Trish! Crazy thing happened, Mariah finally made it to Houston. My two crazies together for their birthdays! Great night of dancing, followed by munchies at some taco place.
We got back to Trish’a place with just enough time for me to shower, and take an hour power nap. Then back to the bus to catch my 7:15am take off. The only problem, it was running just about an hour behind. Two and a half hour power nap on the ride back. (Power naps were my saving grace) Making it back to San Antonio just in time to attend a Thai Holiday small festival.
