Mini trip to Austin

So early Monday morning I hit I35 North to Austin! The plan was to hang out with my sister on Monday and have lunch with 2 good friends: Callie and Taylor on Tuesday. Josh had two huge exams on Monday and Wednesday...so why not head our for a little adventure?

I arrived a little before lunchtime at my sister's apartment. Which is in Barton Creek and I love it! I wish they had apartments like hers near the medical school. We got ready and went to lunch at Mimi's Cafe. They have tons of fun salads to choose from and it comes with a muffin...random lol.

Afterwards we went shopping and found some great clothes at Nordstrom rack. I also found Josh a pair of brown Cole Haan dress shoes for $40! (originally $160) Finding shoes for a size 17 feet is not easy! When he was trying them on I asked him to pose so I could put a picture on the blog and this is what he did. Obviously I wasn't joking!



Later on that night we went to the Hula Hut on Lake Travis. What a fun restaurant! It's kind of like Chuy's meets Joe's Crab Shack. The view on the water was beautiful and the food was awesome.





We stayed up late and drank skinny girl margaritas (YUM) and watched the Teen Choice awards. The next day I met Callie and Taylor for lunch at Sushi Sake. (another great find) It was so great to catch up. We went by the Domain and it is definitely one of the nicest shopping places ever. We found a peacock bench and had to take a picture on it. They laughed at me because I asked a random guy if he would take our picture and please not runaway with my camera. (gotta hold onto this one!) He wanted to take 2 pictures, and our tushes were burning on the metal bench! Overall I had a blast on my day trip before going back to work...sad day.

  1. You are no longer allowed to eat and/or blog about restaurants that I cannot get to/miss. It's just cruel. Tell Joshy I like his new kicks.
