Houston rarely experiences much of a spring season. Generally you might get a few perfect days of high temperatures in the 80s, but they’re few and far between, interspersed between chilly winter holdovers and angry, dark, thunderstorm-filled days (like today, yikes).

Not this spring! I’ve been amazed by all the multiple breezy, warm, PERFECT days we’ve had so far this season. And after a few weekends of being a homebody and getting a bunch of work done around the house, I have officially reemerged into an actual life, back to my social butterfly ways.

I always get excited about live music around this time of year. The holidays are over, spring weather is around the corner and tons of bands start to announce their tours. And then my calendar starts filling up quick!

I always look forward to doing a “currently” post after I’ve been posting a lot about my travels. Trust me, I still love Houston and I haven’t just been sitting around, mooning over Paris! Instead I’ve been spending time actually sitting on the moon.

Bad jokes aside, read on for what I’ve been up to lately!

As I prepared for FPSF this year I had no clue how to go about it. The forecasts called for high heat and humidity AND torrential rain and thunderstorms. Errr….swimsuits and galoshes?

But somehow we survived (mostly by ducking into the fancy pants tents when the sun was relentless or the skies opened up) and still managed to have a great time.

I love taking weekend road trips to Austin. With all the new stuff popping up on a daily basis on the East side, there’s always something new to see and do, plus all our favorite Austin haunts as well.

So when we saw that Eagles of Death Metal had both a Houston and an Austin date on their tour, we opted for Austin and booked an Airbnb so we could make a fun roadtrip out of it. We also decided to finally try out this Franklin Barbecue place that everyone’s always talking about…

I can’t believe Free Press Summer Fest is less than two weeks away! I got my wristband in the mail last night and it put a huge grin on my face, so it seems like a good time to gush about my schedule plans and share my epic FPSF 2016 playlist with you guys.

Since getting back from Mexico life’s been less exciting and a little more simple, but it’s been nice to have a break. I’ve been doing a lot of cooking, exercising and still seeing plenty of live music and fine arts as usual.
