What a weekend this has been! Full of amazing friends, exciting moments, incredible food...and it's not over yet!
Friday night, we went over to a friend's NEW house that they purchased recently. It is in BlackHorse Ranch and is INCREDIBLE. We had a blast hanging by the pool, eating Papa Murphy's (first time for me...so good!!) and drinking Skinny Girl margs. Many congrats to the happy couple and your new digs! Such a fun night.
Saturday morning began bright and early for another friend's graduation from law school! Another amazing accomplishment! I settled my growling breakfast tummy with a Clif bar and skim milk latte on the way there. Not an ideal breakfast, but it did the job.
After the graduation, we attended an amazing reception at the Hilton.
I have never been to a graduation that hosted a reception like this afterwards. Such a treat!
I was rather hambre and dominated this cheese and crackers plate before diving in to the main dish.
Beef tenderloin, spanish rice, veggie pasta, and rolls. YUM!
A few bites of strawberry cheesecake were also ingested. Mmmmm, sugggaarrrr.
Our afternoon was spent at another friend's house shooting a commercial for a new product that they have created. It is on the DL until it is ready for purchase, so I am sworn to secrecy :) But it was SO FUN being a part of the adverstising process! It's not every day that you get to be in a commercial! We are so incredibley excited for our friends and their new product. It's a pretty spectacular idea.. :)
After adding Hollywood Film Star to my resume, we met up with our graduation friends at a little Colombian restaurant in Houston called La Pueblita. This was my first time eating authentic Colombian food and OOMMMGGG, more please.
The atmosphere was so vibrant and accommodating. I ordered the Tamal, which is essentially a giant tamale, but with more of a rice/corn mixture than your traditional corn tamale. It was stuffed with pork, chicken, beef, hard-boiled egg, and veggies and wrapped in a banana leaf with "corn patties" on the side. AMAZING. We will be regulars at this place, going forward. I can tell :)
Now I leave you with a new love/obsession/total girl crush that has come into my life recently. Her name is Kimbra and she is pretty amazing. You may recognize her from Gotye's recent hit, "Somebody That I Used To Know".
Here is her official "Settle Down" video. So much talent. Love love love.
She will be touring with Foster The People (!!!) and The Kooks this Summer and will be in Austin on June 5. If you are in the area and will be there, holler! I will most definitely be there.
Off to get ready for a lunch event with great friends, food, and fun! Hope you had a spectacular weekend!
Love people, eat well, shake your booty, and live your life!
