You can read the story on how we met here but you should know that the moral of this post is "Believe It and It Shall Be Done!"
Last summer we jokingly said that we loved and trusted each other's style so much that we should have an online business. She lives in Dallas and I'm in Houston. We needed a spot that would be halfway for both of us and that just so happens to be in Madisonville, Texas where Buc-ee's is located. I jokingly said that our "office" should be at Buccee's.
8 months later...guess where we met to conduct some business?? BU-CEE'S!
She's never been to Bucee's so I had to show her around. I kinda was a little too excited to give her a tour but by the time we left...she shared my appreciation for Bucee's.
We had barbecue sandwiches in the parking lot...working lunch of course.
Then we took the opportunity to take a few photos...for business purposes of course. (Thank you Petra for taking our pics!)
You might notice in one of the pics above that we are both wearing different jackets. That's because part of our "business" was to exchange clothes that we've been thrifting and holding for each other over the course of a year.
She copped me this fabulous Anne Klein jacket, worn with a F21 tee, Zara pants and my Christmas gift shoes (Pour La Victoire heels)
Somehow she hustled this army jacket from me but I admit that she looks in it so I would say it was a fair swap!
...Pics for our business cards perhaps...
And even found time to act out a scene from The Color Purple...(Me and You Shall Never Part!)
Then we had to go back inside Bucee's because I needed to get my turkey jerkey, homemade fudge and a jar of candied jalopenos before I made my way back to Houston!
We made the most of our "meeting"...trust me. Oddly enough, we never once thought about the people around us staring and laughing. It was just another day at the office...AT BUCEE'S!!!!!
(P.S. I do have a real sister whom I should mention here so she doesn't think I'm replacing her. That's my boo too. I love both my sisters...biological and fashionably related)
