This past weekend my boy and I decided to take a fun little weekend trip to Austin. Nothing extravagant, but a nice little get away from our busy schedules. Our one year is coming up so it called for a celebration. Hanging out in Austin was a great little treat!
Here’s a little run down of our weekend
Firehouse Lounge & Hostel
If you’re anything like us, we like to go out from time to time, but to places that are a little more subtle and personal. A friend of mine recommended this little speak easy, and it was certainly a hit for Jon and I. Located behind a sliding bookcase at an Austin Hostel, is Firehouse lounge. We went mid day so it wasn’t crowded at all, and had the perfect environment for a special little cocktail hour stop.
County Line BBQ
Okay so, no we aren’t glutenous… but we do like to have a yummy meal! And barbecue has been a craving of mine lately. Yeah, we’re not the “healthy all day every day,” type. For our celebration dinner, Jon took me to a great barbecue restaurant that has the most beautiful view of the lake and the sunset. If the food wasn’t worth it, the view sure was.
I’m not one to wear it often… but I love to look around vintage stores at all the clothing I wish I could purchase, or at least be brave enough to wear. Austin has a great selection of stores to rummage through. Near south Congress my favorite one was Feather’s Boutique. Had a good variety of clothing in all colors. I will definitely be making a trip back there soon. And plus, It has a wonderful accent wall, who can resist a little photoshoot action?
Overall, it was a really great and fun weekend with my man. Cheers to a year with him and for the future to come.
