What Happens in Austin...Gets A Blog Post!

This weekend I went to Austin to attend the Texas Style Council Conference. 
This was my second year in a row.
At this point, it's worth it just to hug all of my "blog friends in my head."

I wasn't prepared for the cold and rainy weather.
Like bronchitis kind of weather...because that's what I have now.
Oh wait that's not it...I also have an ear infection.
(And I am way too old to get ear infections, no!?!)
So consider these pictures "bb"...before bronchitis.

 Dress: H&M
Jacket: The Gap
Shoes: Jessica Simpson
Clutch: Borrowed from Juanette...she is the queen of accessories!

I was able to hang out with my blog buddy Rocquelle from Consider Me Lovely.
It's been over year since I've seen her last. I gotta do better!
I just adore her spirit and her style. And she is hella smart...like for reals...she knows alot of stuff!

Every time I see her, I wanna hug her! 
She has the best giggle:)

Ultimate busy woman Elissa was there!

And my all time love/SHERO... KYLA was there.
There are no words to express how I feel about Kyla. 
She knows.
 That's all that matters:)

 And Juanette...my partner in crime...quite literally. 
I can't share the shenanigans because we have a secrecy pact and both of us would have to "off" each other.

After this picture was taken...there were giggles, wet feet, waffles, bad waiters...in no particular order

More pics/bloggers to come...right after I take a swig of cough syrup laced with heaven codeine.
The only thing that is making me feel better right now is catching up on episodes of New Girl...while trying to not cough/choke while gigging.

Shout out to L. Michelle...I need to jack some of your pics!

Hey. QOA here. Why can't I be QOYB? QOGettingItIn? I'm changing my name! I love the pic in the collage where you're smiling really big, maybe I was dancing? I'm so glad we get to experience the good the bad and the ugly together, sorry you got the bronchitis. (Please refer to all illnesses with "the" in front of it from now on.) Now cue the theme from The Golden Girls. "Thank you for being a friend...." Feel better soon Reiko-co-la, there are shenanigans to be had!

I enjoyed meeting you and you were down to earth just like I thought you would be! :) Love the whole ensemble especially the hair and the way you have it styled!

I'm also sick as well from the bad weather in Austin, and hoping it won't get worse, but about a week before I came down to Austin I had the same thing bronchitis and an ear infection (true story lol) and I also had fever too and had to go to the ER..uggghhh so I do know exactly how you feel but I do commend you on getting this post up being sick and all because I haven't yet, but it's in the works.

GFS said...
