A list of things I learned on this road trip:
Food poisoning is the single worst thing that can happen to a person. Especially on vacation.
Small towns think that wearing flower crowns is weird.
Amarillo has a maximum and minimum speed limit.
Librarians are so much cooler than you think they are. Even if you think they're cool already, they're still cooler.
There are like 18 ways to get from Austin to Amarillo, ranging from 7.5 to 10+ hours.
Having food poisoning is a great time to catch up on:
Patios at restaurants are a rare luxury in places that are not Austin.
VSCO Cam is the preferred photo editing app of Girl Scouts who are cooler than I will ever be.
Psychic palm readers run out of steam at the end of their shift, too.
The Wild Cupcake. End of story.
I definitely want to be involved in Girl Scouts in some way in the future.
Always take an extra day off from work when you go on vacation, just in case you get food poisoning.
Mindy Kaling should read all audio books, always.
All Girl Scouts know the same songs, but there is always a new song or extra verse to learn.
Group iMessages are the greatest form of communication in my generation.
I probably can't ever eat nachos again. *shudder*
A rocking chair, porch, and good book are really all I need for a vacation.
Toot n Totem is a real place. Well, are real places. So many Toot n Totems, y'all.
Families come in all shapes and sizes, and new people can join yours at any time.
