Got my plane ticket today and booked a hotel. Got awesome deals - only 200 bucks round trip and 60 percent off a luxury hotel in downtown Austin. Wooo!! I'm going with friends for 8 days at the end of April / first part of May. Should be great fun!! Oooh how I need a vacation...it's a wild crowd too, so who knows what I'm in for. LOL. Now I just have to survive between now and then.
