Rachel and I dressed almost identically. Oops!
We stood in the 102° Texas heat to get into Roller Derby (we always try to get there 45 minutes before doors open so that we can get good seats),
I brought my embroidery with me so that I could finish up a baby shower gift (due the next day!) I got a few strange looks, but hey! It's Roller Derby, so anything goes!
And it begins at last!
We've started making it a tradition to leave at halftime to go get dinner somewhere -- Roller Derby is fun, but after about an hour, I'm ready to do something else!
We went to the strip of food trucks on South Congress ("SoCo"), and got some fantastic crunchy/sweet/spicy chicken and avocado in paper cones with coleslaw and spiced french fries. We love The Mighty Cone!

We stopped at Amy's Ice Cream for dessert, but Rachel and I were so full that all we could fit were ices. I got Spicy Watermelon, which had the salt/lime/chile seasoning from Mexico that is popular around here. A perfectly refreshing end to our meal.
