SD’s 5th Anniversary in Wimberly: June 1-2
I kicked off June with a few exciting anniversaries, the first of which being my company’s five year anniversary! I remember when I was an intern and we celebrated two years, so it’s pretty cool to see how far we’ve come since then. Our founder, Kristen, planned a fun getaway for us in Wimberley. We all spent one night there and enjoyed the beautiful views, delicious food and drinks at The Leaning Pear, and good company of course. The picture above is Kristen standing on a bridge over the creek that was right by where we stayed.
Year and a Half Anniversary: June 5th
The second anniversary I was lucky enough to celebrate was a year and a half with my boyfriend. He asked me to be his girlfriend on December 5, 2015, and I gotta say I am very glad I said yes! This is my first long-term relationship, so 18 months seems like a long time to me.
To celebrate our anniversary, we tried a new restaurant my mom suggested called Chez Zee’s and it was a great night. The ambiance is really cute and romantic, and the food certainly did not disappoint. We will definitely be going back again soon!
Houston Weekend Trip: June 10-12
The following weekend I made a slightly spontaneous trip down to Houston to visit one of my best friends from college, Lauren. She just moved there from Chicago, and had been wanting me to visit since we live so much closer to each other now. The trip was a lot of fun! We spent a lot of the time playing with two adorable dogs, one of which is Lauren’s bulldog Daisy, and the other was a Rottweiler Lauren was watching named Brutus. In the picture above, Daisy and Brutus were play fighting on the couch. It was hilarious to watch! I don’t have a dog of my own, so I always enjoy playing with other people’s when I get the chance.
When we weren’t dog sitting, we spent our time at Lauren’s pool, trying new restaurants, and spending time with some of her new friends. It was a great weekend!
Plano Weekend Trip for Flag Day: June 17-19
I had two weekends in a row of short road trips. This weekend my boyfriend and I drove up to Plano, TX for a family-reunion-of-sorts, which was centered around the often-forgotten holiday, Flag Day. Basically Brian’s uncle just built a pool in his backyard and was looking for an excuse to have a party, so he decided they should celebrate Flag Day and invite the entire extended family to join in on the fun. Each person (or couple) was tasked with representing a certain flag, and bringing the actual flag if possible. Brian found the Earth Flag on Amazon (above), so we brought that. I think ours was the most unique, if I do say so myself.
We spent all day Saturday spending time with his family, playing various games including pool volleyball, corn hole, and beer pong, and of course eating yummy snacks. I’d already met a lot of Brian’s family, but it was nice meeting more of them and putting a face to some names. Unfortunately we somehow left that weekend without a single photo, so you’ll just have to trust me when I say it was a blast!
Quantum Leap: June 24-26
Last but not least, I ended the month attending Quantum Leap, which I mentioned in my last blog College Grad Ramblings: No More Classes. It was a three day event, beginning with a welcome reception at a hotel on Thursday night, where my sister and I met a few new people who were also attending the seminar the next day. The funniest thing that happened that night was when a guy asked if I had a business card, and when I actually pulled one out he seemed shocked and I realized he had been joking. He then asked if he could add us on Snapchat. I’ve never felt more old. Is Snapchat the new networking platform?
Friday we listened to Gary Keller talk all day, and it was very inspirational. He talked a lot about goal setting, and it really motivated me to set goals for my blog. I’d love to grow my audience on here!
The final day was a few hours on Saturday, where we discussed what we had learned on Friday, and got the opportunity to actually write down our goals and how we plan to achieve them. All in all it was a very informative and motivational few days, and I’m really glad I went!
That’s it for my June Recap. I hope you all enjoyed hearing about some of the highlights of the past month! On another note, I’m really close to hitting 400 followers on Twitter, so if you have an account go ahead and follow me! I mostly tweet random things I think are funny as well as live tweet The Bachelorette (no shame).
