Weekend Notes

By Camille Styles


Happy fiesta weekend! It’s a busy but fun couple of days around here… my great friend Jess is staying with us, looking at houses in preparation for her family’s big move to Austin next month (yippee!), so I’ll be playing tour guide and taking her to a few of my favorite spots in the city. And my little sis is in town for her 22nd birthday, so last night we celebrated with a pre-birthday party by the pool with tons of grilled pizzas, pinot grigio and a big layered birthday cake my mom brought over. It’s so rare to spend a whole weekend surrounded by old friends and family, and I’m definitely trying to unplug and savor these moments with the people I love. What are all of you up to this weekend? Hope it’s full of May sunshine and a couple of Cinco de Mayo margaritas! And of course, enjoy a few of my favorite links from the week…
