Llama-ing in the Rain, Just Llama-ing in the Rain!

 

I know we’re always supposed to be thankful for rain, but I’m over it.

 

LLAMA STUFF TONIGHT:

  1. The happy hour I’m co-hosting with San Antonio Young Professionals is STILL ON at this hour. Please keep an eye out on Facebook or the website if we have to postpone. Otherwise, enjoy appetizers and good people from 6 to 8pm at Grayze TONIGHT!

  2. I have a discount code for $10 off tickets (Code: LlamaLUV) to Taste of the Heights 7-10pm at Witte Museum. http://tasteoftheheights.com/
