Today, shopping for back-to-school (which basically is anything clothes) is tax free in Texas. I indulged in shoes. A pair of uber goddess-y gold-and-bronze beaded thong sandles from Emeralds (the best boutique for shoe shopping in Austin) and some black slip-on wedges from Coldwater Creek.
More significantly, I'd like to send out congratulations to my cousin Laura on the birth of her daughter, Autumn Lynn, and to my cousin Melissa on the birth of her daughter, Kaitlin Rose. Congratulations also to the grandmas, my aunts Gail and Linda, and the great-grandma Melba. It's been an exciting week for my mama's side of the family!
