Trudy’s. Mexican Martinis & Memories

It is hard to beleive that 14 years ago I was living in Austin and was a student at UT. How in the world did time go by so quickly!? It still blows my mind. Not only that, but 10 years ago I graduated from UT. This makes me 32 years old!! WOW. Every time I visit Austin (which is often) it takes me back. I lived there for about 4 1/2 years and during those years, SO much happened. There were good times, not-so-good times, crazy times and fun times. The one place that I would frequent for celebrations, catch up sessions, girl talk, heart-to-hearts and just to have fun, was Trudy’s. Trudy’s was kind of my “go-to” in every situation. I would order the famous Mexican Martini, chips & salsa and talk the night away. It was the BEST. Back in the day, there was only one location – central off of West 30th St. Now, there are several locations. Nothing is like the original though – it just has that Austin look & feel. Tonight I had a reunion dinner with my two college roommates Katie and Heather. It was so fun to A) see each other B) talk about our lives C) talk about our past memories together and D) plan new future adventures! This is so awesome to me because we met when we were 18 years old. Our reunion just reminded me of the times we have shared and it made me also think of what is yet to come. I left feeling really proud and grateful of the strong friendships I made in Austin. Not only did I receive an awesome education (thanks Dad!!), I gained a second family. And to think, it all started over a few Mexican Martinis 🙂
