You might remember previous posts about my One Kitchen Many Hearts friends…you know, the ones who mail each other boxes filled with goodies every other month? Well, we all haphazardly met through our blogs and decided it was kismet and became friends. In February, we met in person at Jeanne (Inside NanaBread’s Head) lovely home in Houston, TX!
Jeanne made us all feel welcome with hand-crafted monogrammed pillows (see tutorial here), individual coasters, and lip balm.
She and her husband, “The Complete Package”, cooked feasts for us for every meal. I didn’t take a single food picture because I was too busy shoving my face full of deliciousness. None of my pants fit by the end of the weekend, but that’s precisely how it should be. Noteworthy favorites: homemade horchata, peach cobbler, ranch beans, smoked brisket, french toast waffles, fried pies, Mexican martinis, and biscuits and gravy.
After a huge debacle with Thrifty rental company (I will never use them again), we finally rented a molester van from Avis. I was able to drive it and my pal, Kevin the Donkey, all around Houston for the weekend.
Besides feasting, we also chatted late into the night, shopped until we dropped, laughed until we cried, and hung out with real donkeys! I’ll show the rest of the weekend in pictures before this post turns into a TLDR post.
On top of the entire weekend of festivities, we were also able to exchange our gifts in person. Kirsten (Comfortably Domestic) got me such wonderful treats. Thank you, Kir!
I had an absolute blast and I cannot wait for our OKMH: 2015 reunion. A year is so long to wait!
Thank you to Jeanne and The Complete Package for letting 7 women descend upon your house! Thank you to Kirsten for the wonderful gifts! Thank you to Allison, Kat, Beka, and Megan for being such wonderful travel companions! And thank you to Katie for meeting us in Brenham for a day of fun! I seriously loved every minute of our adventure.
