Day Trip to Austin

Terence and I took a little overnight trip to Austin this past weekend.  We had driven through it, but I’ve never really explored the city.  I must say it’s definitely an eclectic crowd!  I can see why they call it “Food Truck Capital of the World”.  Food trucks were everywhere….someday I want to go back and do a food truck crawl.

You couldn’t have asked for better weather either.  Before we left we fueled up on coffee of course 😉


I had a great time catching up with one of my highschool friends, Malea, whom I hadn’t seen in a long while.  She is so precious and it was so good to see her!  We have to make a point to get together more often.

We also visited with Terence’s cousin Katy & her hubby Michael.  They are always great tour guides.  We stayed with them in Paris when they were living there….it was such a fun trip!

Yummy breakfast with pancakes, bacon, eggs, potatoes, and croissants with strawberry butter.

I can see why BlogHer Food is going to be in this city….you can eat some place new every weekend and never run out of places to go!

A little shopping for Connor boy


Yummy Amy’s ice cream


Then we headed home….look at this truck.



Not before grabbing a little Coffee Bean of course!


And now we are back, laundry is done.  Connor is sick-again. UGH.  Every time I leave town he gets sick.  We went to the pediatrician today and he’s on antibiotics and allergy meds.  You can tell he’s just miserable….poor little guy.  Back to work tomorrow and time to grind away again. Is it too early for retirement???

  1. Love your pictures! I’m in love with Austin. My mom and I went last year for a few days and I am ready to go back. The food trucks were one of my favorite parts. It’s just the neatest city. So much to see and do there.

    Sorry your little guy has been sick though. 🙁
