Trip to Austin

Thursday, July 12, 2007

I just got back from a visit to Austin, Texas, where I was a bridesmaid in my dear friend Katie's wedding.

Notables include:

1. People driving on the highway in the daytime rain don't turn their lights on anymore. I'm serious, I bet less than 50% of drivers I encountered had their lights on! Jonathan drove back to Memphis with me, where he experienced this same phenomenon. I wanted to shout, I CAN'T SEE YOU! Especially with trucks spewing rain all over your windshield as you pass them--makes it very difficult to see anything.

2. Anyone ever had chocolate-covered sunflower seeds/kernels? I hadn't either, but they were the favor at the rehearsal dinner.

3. I visited the Steve & Barry's SJP store. I'll give them a little slack: maybe it's between shipments or something. Everything was incredibly picked over, and they had mostly Larges and XLarges left. There was one black jacket I liked, and several screen print tees, which was a surprise. I didn't know the screen print tee would be a focus for her. Also I realized that the fashion shows on TV were outfits put together by trained stylists, who had a tough job of taking BASICS and making them into something fahionable.

4. Still want that houndstooth coat, though. Now at least I can project my exact size in her clothing.

(I'll post a few pictures once I put the pictures on my computer)

Hope everyone's summers are going along wonderfully!
