Weekend Recap: Bachelorette Party in Austin

Oh my goodness this lack of posting is becoming a terrible trend. I feel like I open every post with “I’m so sorry I have been MIA.” There is just so much going on lately and little time for creativity, much less shopping online for all the outfit details! Today I am simply sharing some pictures from this past weekend’s bachelorette party in Austin.

My once student assistant, turned intern, turned friend is getting married in January!!! I am so excited for her because she and her hubby-to-be are adorable. All of us had a great time in Austin and loved sharing the weekend experience with her. Without further ado…

Friday night we all met at the hotel and got ready for dinner. Weirdly enough, few pictures were taken! We ate at Geraldine’s at Hotel Van Zandt in Austin. The food was fantastic! It’s tapas style so you can order several “small bites” and make a meal of it while still trying several items from the menu. With creative cocktails and live music, you can’t go wrong with this place. Check it out for date night if you’re in the Austin area. After dinner we went to a couple of bars on Rainey Street. Such a different vibe to 6th Street and I like it so much better.

Saturday we had brunch at Snooze (a favorite of mine) followed by a half-day wine tour with Discover Texas Wine Tours. Our driver, Jason, was so friendly! We had a great time and I highly recommend this tour company if you are looking to do a wine tour. We stopped at Deep Eddy Vodka distillery, Duchman Family Winery, and Salt Lick Cellars. All were stunning visually. I was a little sad the weather was overcast and cold, but at least there was good lighting for pictures đŸ˜‰Â  Saturday night we went to Rainey Street again and met up with some guys from a bachelor party we met the previous night. They were hilarious and kept us laughing until the bar closed. Visit Lustre Pearl if you want a casual, but lively place on Rainey. Great views of the skyline from the second floor!

Sunday I drove home to get the hubs and we headed to Houston for a couples shower. Sometimes I feel like the bride and groom are the younger version of us.

Grand Cayman Vacation Recap

Hi lovelies! The hubs and I are back from vacationing in Grand Cayman. We went a few days ahead of the family for our own mini vacation, but as it so happens, a tropical storm was forming and we spent much of that time inside because of the rain. Turns out there aren’t a ton of things to do on the island when the weather is poor! We made the best of it though. On the pretty days we enjoyed the beach, made friends with a few chickens (haha), and tried new places and adventures. Once you have been going to the same place for awhile you tend to stick to your habits. I updated my Grand Cayman Vacation Guide post to include the new restaurants and activities we enjoyed. I hope you enjoy the pictures below!
