The Most Delicious Sno Cone...

Tuesday, August 08, 2006

...is any sno cone from Sno Beach in Austin, Texas, yessir. Shout-out to Shelby, who was there when I popped in for a surprise visit. It was so exciting to step into that sweet white trailer, listen to the lovely music of ice shaving, and see the colorful myriad of bottles displayed in the window for all to admire and crave. I miss me some Sno Beach sno cones, that's so true, and my fun job there. Cash tips, the occasional crazies, sweet goodness in a cup right at your fingertips--what's not to love in a job like that?

Also on the aforementioned trip to Austin this past weekend, I got to see my dear friend Erin Lee Trimble become Mrs. Erin Trimble Hicks. 'Twas a beautiful ceremony, and a picturebook reception too, outside on the grounds of a white mansion (The Barr Mansion: http://www.barrmansion.com/) in a glassed-in, vaulted room with hydrangeas everywhere, a fun band, and carrot cake to boot! I got to see many old and wonderful friends, and dance to "Brick House" and "We Are Family" like never before.

Tax free weekend extended to Austin, where my friends Katie, Becky, and I went to the outlets in San Marcos, where they have just built a Crate & Barrel outlet. It was maximum fun that I could have without my Jonathan, who was in Chicago for the weekend with some of his college friends, seeing 2 sporting events: a Cubs game with awesome 3rd row seats, and the MLS All-Stars vs. Chelsea in soccer. Definitely fun for boys. Maybe he'll take me to Chicago someday and we can do both sports and shopping. Compromise=friendship and marriage.

I'm a very blessed girl.

I will be driving through Memphis next month and want to see you (I told this to Brooke too and I need to tell Jesse)so maybe we can all have lunch or something or maybe some coffee.

  2. Erin Trimble Hicks...fantastic! I'm so happy for her--what a neat and God-filled girl.

    Kelly, you've now kind of told me that you're coming to Memphis because I just read it! Lunch or coffee is a must.

  3. So far most of my trips to Chicago have been shopping OR sports. However this last one combined two games with a trip to a very large mall and Ikea. Not bad.
