Labor Day Weekend

For Labor Day Weekend, Mason and I headed to where else but Austin, TX. Friday night, we went out on West 6th and had a fun time seeing old friends.{Me, Liz and Tara out on West 6th}

Saturday, was the first UT football game of the season!! Yay! We started out at Cain & Abel's on the Lake with some brunch and mimosa's. If you haven't been to this new establishment on Lake Austin yet, you are missing out. It offers all of the fun that Cain & Abel's on Campus does, but with beautiful Lake Austin as a scenic backdrop.

The day started out pleasant and breezy....until we moseyed on over to campus to tailgate and then it became miserable! Cowboy boots and two pairs of socks (to prevent blisters) only made the heat more unbearable. Good thing I wore a white dress to mask the sweat! ;) Texas did not disappoint in our season opener against Louisiana Monroe (unlike a certain football team just north of the Red River...*cough* OU SUCKS *cough*). ;) Ha, sorry, couldn't resist. Anyway, after our victory we went down to Dirty 6th and had a rather festive evening celebrating our win and OU's loss! {Mason and Cameron and their high school friends}

We stayed in Austin and just bummed around until yesterday afternoon. It was a nice 4 day weekend for me and I am so very happy to only have to endure 4 more days until next weekend. Hope you all had a great LDW, as well! :)


  1. Your friend Tara reminds me of my old roommate.:) I loved her and miss her so much. I know of some girls who moved to Austin and really like it. Yay for short weeks! It's almost over......I hope you hear some good news from a school soon. crossing my fingers for you.
