My kids were with their dad so I had 3 glorious days of doing whatever I wanted. But still, I was pretty excited to get them back last night. I ran to Target yesterday morning for some recipe supplies and found myself buying them all new shoes and it turns out I kinda miss them by day 3.
So if you follow me anywhere, you know I was in Austin at BlogHer Food all weekend. It’s a conference for food bloggers where we all talk about what annoys us about our job and then we eat everything in the city.
And, in case you’ve ever wondered, I am horrible at conferences. (Very good at the eating part though.)
I showed up for 3 things the entire conference. And only stayed the full time for 1 of those.
Sitting still is hard for me, y’all.
Also, I sat down with a group of girls I didn’t know for the closing keynote and they asked if I had a business card.
And I didn’t.
I mean, do I seem like the kind of girl that carries business cards?
Anyway, one of the girls said, “Aww, you must be a new blogger!”
So that was kind of how the conference went for me.
I did get to hang out with friends that I’ve only ever known over the internet which was honestly the only reason I went to begin with so that totally made up for the conference being… ahem… lame.
Heeeeey guys! I can’t believe it’s Monday again. Why does this keep happening?!
Let’s go back to Friday, mmkay?
So how was the weekend?
I did that thing where I swore I was going to stay home all weekend and clean my house and then ended up doing the exact opposite.
The monthly food truck festival over in Temple snuck up on me this month and you know I can’t miss that! So the kids and I headed over there Saturday. My favorite truck wasn’t there this month but I did have a delicious plate of Hawaiian Pulled Pork Fries and something called a Redneck Taco.
The redneck taco? Honestly, I ordered it just for the name and now I can’t stop thinking about it.
It was cornbread with rice, brisket, sausage, beans, and nacho cheese on top.
It was ridiculous and amazing and I’ll be looking for that truck next month.
