It's been quite a darn long time since The League made a to-do over our birthday. But its safe to say today turned out pretty well, all things considered.
I spent some time rockin' with first Jason, and then Jason + Reed. Then Jason + Reed + Jamie. Enjoyed some sunshine. It was a pretty decent sort of day.
This evening we met up at Artz Rib House on South Lamar, and many-a-Leaguer showed up for BBQ, the music of Austin's own Flyin' A's, and to have a drinky drink.
The list, in no particular order, included.
Keora and Jeff
Lauren and Steven
We were also joined by special guests: Natalie P and her mysterious friend from California. Natalie's appearance (con Lydia) was a nice addition as I had never actually had opportunity to meet Natalie face to face. She's a total sweetheart, and it was my pleasure to finally get to spend some time chatting with her.
We also had a surprise appearance by Alfredo Garcia and his ladyfriend.
Add in a birthday serenade by the Flyin' A's and a few birthday shoutouts from Hilary and Stuart, and, hey... we had fun.
We came back to the house for a few drinks and to chat, and everything is sort of wrapped up now, and I'm a bit tired.
So, thank you to everyone who came out. And a special thanks to those who gifted me for my b-day (you know who you are, and you all went above and beyond. I sincerely appreciate the gifts). Thanks for the birthday wishes. And thanks for giving me a great birthday, to one and all.
Now we have to do it all over again next weekend for Mel..
