I started a podcast!

Hi! I started a podcast with my longtime BFF, Kim. It’s called Hey, Bestie! and we chat about pop culture, things we love (or hate) feminism, and modern life. And there are already four episodes up! So far we’ve talked about bullet journaling, The Rock running for president, shows you should never binge watch, romance novels, and more. Go to for more info and ways to listen or hop right over to iTunes.

BFF Sunday in Austin

I’m in Austin staying with the BFF for a few days. Yesterday we watched Buffy and ate cheeseburgers. Today included Cinnamon Roll Waffles for breakfast, hours of talking, a few episodes of Firefly, and Stiles Switch BBQ for dinner. BBQ dinner at Stiles Switch BBQ in Austin today.

Reasons BFF Visits Are Great

My BFF (of 18 years!) flew to Dallas from Austin to visit me this weekend. (Virgin ran a deal a while back and we both got tickets for weekend visits for around $100.) And here’s the thing that’s really great about when your best friend comes to stay at your house: You don’t have to DO anything special for it to be great. There’s no pressure to put on a whole production to entertain and/or impress. Your BFF is there to visit YOU, and so you can spend hours upon hours talking & talking & talking. And then you can watch about 12 episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. And you can go to a bakery and get a ton of sweets to eat when you’re not out grabbing your favorite pizza. It’s great & I highly recommend it. 😀 I had the best pizza ever this weekend @canerossotx. Prosciutto & fresh mozzarella made in-house. And dessert pizza! #pizza #dallas A post shared by Kim Jones (@owlpacinophotos) on Jun 28, 2015 at 1:24pm PDT
