Adam had to go to Austin TX one weekend for work. Because I have the companion pass on SouthWest, he mentioned that I come with him. When I realized my mom was already going to be in town and could watch the kids, it was an enthusiastic yes!!! Truth be told, it was my first time in a different state than the kiddos.
We had an unbelievable weekend. We stayed at a hotel located in this swanky shopping area called The Domain. Adam had to work all day on Saturday and I was surrounded by awesome stores with no one to take care of but myself! It was the BEST day ever.
And Austin surpassed all my expectations. We didn't do a lot of sight seeing or anything. But the vibe there was so cool, the people were so nice, the food was unbelievable, and it totally lived up to it's reputation with live music around every corner. Or, I could have just loved it so much because I was in a kid-less euphoria....hmmm.
On Saturday afternoon we were having drinks at this place called Culinary Dropout. We had planned to start our night there and move on. We were sitting at his island-type bar when a couple approached us and asked if we would mind moving down a few seats to make room for their larger party that was on their way. We did of course, and they bought us drinks for doing so! Texas hospitality at it's finest! Well, it was the beginning of a super fun evening. We ended up hanging out with their group the whole night, drinking and playing corn hole. I love how so many of the Texas restaurants are built around a game area. It was such an unexpected fun twist. Truly a night to remember.
Such a random fun trip with just the two of us...and our new friends of course!
The only photo I took during the 48 hours.
Oh, and this one...because...WOW!!! For a person who loves cake, this is a dream come true!!
Such a fun place and great memory. I hope we get to go back one day!
