Austin Party Train: Bazaars, Sweater Parties & Sweet Deals

Choo Choo Party Elves!

Despite the fact that I have the plague, overwhelming guilt from last week dragged me out of bed to do this.  I’m sure people have 134 holiday parties to go to but just in case you don’t, interesting events this week.  Lots of charity opportunities (parties, donate skincare to safeplace, foodbank action), great coupons for christmas (kohls, old navy, borders) and some major randomness (flamenco lessons, christmas pops singalong, hump! A classic night of funk and boogie).

But first, this:

Hope you all are doing better on christmas shopping than i am.  As always let me know if there’s something you’d like featured or if a link doesn’t work.  Oh and let me apologize for the then/than mistake last week. Horror of horrors.

Yours in mouth breathing and pounding nyquil,
