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 😉 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.
I hope you enjoyed this quick update and found some places to check out if you’re in the Austin area. Until next post…xoxo Becca
It is hard to believe how quickly the year goes by. Yesterday was April 1 and Easter Sunday! I spent a lovely weekend with the hub’s family (he had to work). On Sunday we went to church at Houston’s First Baptist Church. My older sister-in-law is in the choir and we like the pastor and enjoy the message there. After church we had a delicious late lunch and relaxed until I headed home to see the hubs for a few minutes before his shift. My mother-in-law had planned on making Joanna’s Strawberry Shortcake for dessert, but there were no strawberries to be found! Guess everyone had planned on serving something with strawberries 🙂 I can’t wait to try it out when there isn’t a strawberry shortage haha
Lexi loved every minute of the weekend and is currently snoring as I write this post. My in-laws moved to a new house last summer and it sits on beautiful, wooded acreage so the pups run around enjoying the outdoor. Not only does Lexi come home exhausted, but she is usually a filthy mess and therefore gets a bath. Her least favorite thing to do!
While I was in the area I went to Old Navy to see if I could find anything fun for spring. I don’t typically think of Old Navy as a place to go, but I have gift cards to the Gap Brand stores. For some reason all the bright colors and floral patterns drew me in and I bought some great stuff that really puts me in the mood for spring! Plus they had store wide sales. I mean…I got these flip flops in silver for $1.99! Best part is, the majority of the items I purchased can be worn for work and on the weekends. Double win! I also picked up these shorts in pink and think they are going to get a lot of use this summer. A couple of my purchases are no longer available online, but if you don’t normally shop at Old Navy you may want to give it a try for spring/summer.
I hope you have a really productive week! If you want a fun desktop background, check out the ones from The Every Girl. What’s on your calendar for April? Anything exciting? Tell me about it in the comments. Until next post…xoxo Becca
