{Wasted Away Again in Margaritaville...}

Great friends, the beach, & margaritas...doesn't get much better than that!  
Yesterday, some friends & I made a road trip to Galveston for the first annual Texas Tequila & Margarita Festival which was held at Moody Gardens.  Since this was the first one, we weren't sure what to expect, but it was SO MUCH FUN!!    
{What's a road trip without a stop at Buc-ee's??}
After barely surviving the traffic in Houston & discovering once we pulled into the parking lot at Moody Garden's that Abby had left her ID on her dresser at home, we ended up having a blast!  There were 3 events: an outdoor festival from 12pm-10pm, a tequila tasting from 12pm-3pm & a margarita tasting from 3pm-6pm. I'll admit that the outdoor festival was a little bit of a disappointment, but the margarita tasting definitely made up for it!
The place was packed & the vendors were a little unorganized so the lines got a little long, but we met lots of new friends while we waited.  Everyone was so nice & friendly...but then again, maybe it was just the tequila talking! =)  We sampled pretty much every kind of margarita you can imagine: plain, strawberry, watermelon, jalapeno, peach, cucumber...some were delicious, some were not so delicious.  You could also vote for your favorite for the people's choice award.  Another good thing about the event is that all of the money raised went to a local charity.  So, at least we were drinking for a good cause!  They had a DJ playing music the entire time & the night ended with an impromptu dance party.  I am fairly certain all the tequila definitely played a roll in that one!
After a quick stop at the beach, we headed back home.  We will definitely be going back next year if they have it again, but we will for sure be staying the night in Galveston.  2 1/2 hour drive home after that = no fun!! 
Hillary, Tracy, & Tabbatha - thanks for an awesome was a blast!! ;)
