Australia meets Texas

Aussie boyfriend came for a visit last month, and it was a good time. 

In fact, it was such a good time that I have been eating My Fit Foods ever since he left so that I can undo the damage of all the delicious things we ate and drank constantly while he was here.

There were typical Houston nights, beach time, an introduction to crawfish, bingo playing, San Antonio time, an Indian engagement party, nights at a dance hall, Texas sized Stetsons, longhorns, exploring the hill country, river floating, and two crazy nights in Austin with a wild group of Australian men. 

[And for a time reference, he left on the day I flew out for my double wedding weekend. Maybe this is why I still feel like I am catching up on sleep.]

I drove that group of crazies around Austin and the surrounding areas in a mini van for two days. It was spectacularly hilarious. 

I think he makes a good Texan, no?

On why Indian weddings are awesome

It may have lasted all day long, but I had a blast being a bridesmaid in an Indian wedding for the following reasons:

1. Copious amounts of delicious Indian food
2. The most gorgeous sari that I want to wear every day [but can't because there's no way I can get it on by myself]
3. The best hair and makeup job I've ever had in my life
4. All the colors and vibrant traditions
5. The sheer uniqueness of it all
7. The food trucks that came in from Austin
8. The delicious cupcakes
9. The speech I got to give even though I cried my way through it
10. The fact that it was for one of my best friends :)

The venue was gorgeous, the bride wore three different outfits, there was a choreographed Bollywood dance, and we danced our little hearts out until 11 pm even though it was on a Sunday.

I'd say the exhaustion was well worth it to be able to share such a special day with my Fab Four girls.

Here's to another Indian wedding in February!

I am a real life version of 27 Dresses

I went from being in Dallas on a Saturday evening looking like this

To San Antonio on a Sunday morning looking like this

Not only did I switch cities, I switched cultures too!!

And let me say, God bless the makeup artist who fixed my monster face on Sunday. I showed up with bloodshot allergy eyes and one tired looking face. My only explanation is that she is a wizard. 

More pictures to come when I get out of the daze of being in two weddings in one weekend.
