What else have I been up to over the past few weeks?
In addition to bike rides, trivia, and watching the Bachelor with good friends and good drinks, I've been taking blurry pictures and forcing BF to listen to one of my favorite bands live (we hit up the Arcade Fire concert), which was neat because the lead guy is actually from the Woodlands (suburb of Houston and subject of their latest album), and got even neater when he encouraged the audience to move closer to the stage (yesss).
BF and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary with a bike ride (when I got into a fight with a pole and then was ganged up on by the sidewalk and the road) followed by dinner at our favorite sushi place and BF wearing my favorite shirt.
Roadtripping to Austin with a group of awesome dudes (in the middle of the week, even though I'm too old for these sorts of shenanigans) to see Of Montreal (which I love and have missed the past couple times they've come to Houston). We hit up an amazing sushi place for happy hour, and a couple of great bars and still managed to make up our way close enough to the stage that we were within spitting distance of the band. I know their music isn't for everyone, but it was probably one of the best concerts I've ever been to, an incredibly fun evening, and totally worth spending six hours in the car and getting home at 3 (okay I fell asleep in the car on the way home- such an old lady). I felt like I was back in college (in a good way), and I'm so glad that I finally got to see them.
Music, love, and living- May's been a great month for me.
