It's practically Friday and the State Democratic Convention is underway in Ft. Worth. If you follow on Instagram @PinkGraniteTX check out our stories. I've got a savvy young politico named Tina taking over our stories for the convention and I can't wait to see what she shares.

And before you ask why I didn't do such for the GOP convention - honestly I just didn't think of it all until yesterday. That's called building the plane as you fly it - I'm not a professional blogger but I'm learning the tricks. So if you're a Republican (or another Dem) and want to share what your candidate's doing, how you volunteer or anything else that is CIVIL and related to #PinkGranite let me know and we'll get it lined up.

This weekend was a big one in the Whited household. Father's Day, our first trip to Chuck E. Cheese, we learned who Post Malone is, AND Saturday night was the grand finale gala of the Austin Man & Woman of the Year event benefiting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I am not your 2018 Woman of the Year (single tear) but my team raised about 5 times more than I ever expected so I thank everyone for their support! I'll write up a separate post soon about my thoughts on the experience and tips for others who may be tapped to run next year. It's a great event that often looks to the capital crowd for candidates and I'm happy to share my two cents.

But for now let's look at some more interesting headlines from the morning.

Let's not forget to talk about the news from the GOP Convention this Week:
