houston events calendar may 2 8 2016my gosh there are so so SO many good things this week. i’m not even being dramatic, there is something you HAVE to see every single weekday this week. and then the weekend don’t even get me started, i don’t know how i’ll do it all. (but don’t worry, i’m the queen of not missing out – i’ll find a way to DO IT ALL)

also, it was so nice to meet all those new friends this past week. every now and then i get stuck in my own head and think i’ve met all the people there are to meet in houston and then out of the clear blue sky i’ll meet someone great. so thanks yall for having a birthday and letting me play shuffleboard with you and for drinking free drinks during a windy fundraiser and playing all those hits until 4am while i danced with my twin and doing your comedy show and seeing me after and making me go rock climbing, even if my arms do end up falling off. and if you were out of town this weekend welcome home!
