A Game of Thrones Ruined My Social Life

Yes, I could go to Barton Springs Pool today but I won’t.

Instead, I’m going to fill my head with the God-like fury of thousand dragons… Happy Labor Day weekend to me!

Summer Starts Here #makebeauty #bglowing

In Austin, many of us are looking forward to the musical acts and comedians scheduled to perform at FunFunFun Fest this year. If you haven’t made it down here to the Texas Hill Country to enjoy our magical music moments, find a way to enjoy live music in your city.

The weekends are designed for rest, relaxation, and tons of fun – enjoying music by your favorite artists in the city you love is a perfect way to spend your two-day break from work! Who knows? You may even gain more writing material than you’d expect just by having fun with friends and family at a concert.

Writing Ideas abound!

Going to FFF? Who are you most excited to see this year?

One of my all time favorite things to do on the weekend, even if I am working, is find time to enjoy the great outdoors. This weekend, you should enjoy the sanctuary that is your Backyard.

Backyards are good for one thing: Staying at HOME for the Weekend! A few backyard activities to enjoy in the heat of the summer include:

  • Early evening cook outs, potlucks, and cocktail parties with family and friends. In Texas and hot weather climates, having an outdoor party requires preparation (especially because of those vampiric mosquitoes) but is doable. Break out the paper plates and plastic wear for a seriously fun backyard nom-fest.
  • Arts and Craft parties. This is one of my favorite types of events to hold at home, and you can get extra messy if you’re outdoors! Everyone enjoys creating pieces of art. Even if you don’t feel very crafty, it’s nice to spend time with your amazingly talented friends who’ll let you bring the refreshments (wink, wink). WHIP OUT THE PAINT!
  • Dance parties in your backyard. ’nuff said. Just make sure it’s cool with the neighbors, first!

For those of you who are enjoying the urban lifestyle via flats and apartment communities, find a friend with a backyard for you to play in. If your community has a courtyard or common area to enjoy a grill out with your neighbors, get your BBQ on this weekend!
