A Last Minute Plan

The Roommate & I being silly on Bid Day 2012
To say that my roommate and I's New Year's Eve trip was last minute would be putting it lightly. The Thursday before the New Year our friend, who lives in Houston, texted us saying that she wouldn't be going to her lake house for NYE anymore. One thing led to another and literally within 20 minutes my roommate (A) and I were planning a trip to go and visit her.

Forever on the road
Back before winter break began, we had planned a trip to go and visit her to keep her company for a weekend and a few days, though that got derailed early on. When the opportunity presented itself to go and visit her because both of our work schedules allowed it, we couldn't say no.

We planned the trip Thursday, packed on Friday (kind of), and left Saturday after both of our shifts. She made a playlist called 'betches be road trippin' and we set out. (Side note: her playlists are some of the greatest.)

And we even brought home cupcakes! 
This was my first time going to Texas, and while it was a lot of fun, I don't think that I'll be relocating there anytime soon. It was fun, but I didn't really fall in love with Houston. The places we went and where we ate definitely deserves it's own posts though, and I'll get to that later!

Have you ever been to Texas? Did you love it there? Where's your favorite place to visit? 


  1. Of COURSE I love it there :) Houston doesn't have immediate charm, but a spectacular place to live! Love the spontaneous trip

  2. Its the unplanned (or rather not planned so far ahead) trips that are always the best! Hope you guys had a great time, and I cannot wait to read the rest

  3. "betches be road trippin" hahahaha. Too funny. Adore this post, love. If you get a sec, I'd love to hear your thoughts on my latest. xo



Thanks for saying hello! I love hearing from all of you & reply back to everyone as quickly as I can! xoxo
