7 quick takes {no. 25} Austin edition!

Happy Friday, friends! This is turning into a 7 quick takes blogging kind of month for me. Hopefully once I'm back in NYC this fall I can get back into my groove. But for now, here are seven quick takes (and more than seven pictures) from our weekend in Austin!

Michael and I stayed at the sweetest bed and breakfast just west of Austin, near Lake Travis. It was a secluded little cottage for two. I must say it was quite romantic, and such a nice place to get away and celebrate two years of marriage.
Of course, we enjoyed exploring Austin as well. I must say, it is a great town!

We spent some time in the South Congress Street area and ate at Guero's Taco Bar of Something Other Than God fame for lunch. 
Delicious chips & salsa.
Enjoying a margarita!
We also spent some time searching for a couple of the murals around Austin, which was a lot of fun! We happened to stop by this "Greetings from Austin" mural at the same time as another family. They were all decked out in their Texas best - cowboy hats, cowboy boots and all! While talking to them we found out they just moved to the area from near NYC! What are the odds?

They insisted we wear their cowboy hats for our picture, as you can see below. Too funny.

This Austin mural was probably my favorite:
Love my man!

After taking pictures and exploring in the heat, we clearly needed some Amy's Ice Cream.
We both tried their famous Mexican Vanilla flavor, which was delicious. (Michael had Reese's Cup mixed into his. Yum!)

After a little rest and relaxation back at our B&B we went to a nearby restaurant which overlooked Lake Travis.
The views were gorgeous! It made for a lovely evening.

On Sunday we were blessed to meet beautiful Kathryn (and her baby girl, Gianna!). I always adored Kathryn from her blog, but meeting her in person made me like her even more. As she said in her quick takes, "Isn't it fun when internet people become real people?" I so agree! (Especially when said person has a sweet Texas accent to boot!)
We so enjoyed our conversation and spending time with you, Kathryn! Here's hoping we're back in Austin again someday.

So that was our weekend! This week has been relatively uneventful...other than when we got rear-ended at a red light. That was just great. (Not!) But we are fine, thank the Lord!

And last, but most certainly not least, a special shoutout to my beautiful sister-in-love who turns 12 today! Happy birthday, Malissa!
Love ya, sis!

Be sure to visit Jen and check out the other quick takers...
Happy weekend!

  1. So fun! I lived in Austin for 5 years and I miss it so much. :-) I've been to every place you photographed (except the B&B)!

  2. I love those cowboy hats! Yee-haw. Come back soon!


I would love to hear from you! Thanks for taking the time to leave a note.
