Travel Photo Diary: Austin
|We went to the Juice Land down the street every single morning|
|Trying on my dream cowgirl boots at Allen's Boots|
|Just part of our meal at Guero's Taco Bar on South Congress...they had outdoor misters to stay cool while eating tacos al fresco!|
|Our Texas "yard" for the week in our Airbnb|
|BBQ dream night at Franklin BBQ - splurge for the fatty brisket and Key Lime pie...I did|
|My girlfriend from college started Lovely Ink Calligraphy and did the place card calligraphy!|
|We decided to fly in a day early and slum it at the Four Seasons Austin! It was fancy and baby-friendly, which is a combo hard-to-find.|
|I met one of my now-best friends when I joined a "Brooklyn Mommy Group" group almost two years ago, and we became fast friends bonding over cheeseburgers and pregnancy woes, and became more like family after we both had babies born weeks apart. Our kids have grown up together, and although my friend's son has about 10lbs on Juliette, they get along so well playing rough (wrestling?!) as equals.|
My friend had her Austin wedding a few weeks ago, and we took this as an opportunity to take a few extra days and enjoy Austin for the first time! My parents flew in from Minnesota and served as the world's best nannies while Shawn and I got to attend all of the wedding events, go on a few dates, and enjoy lots of "alone" time while my parents were on toddler duty (thank you Mom & Dad)!
We went to the recommended bars, restaurants, shops which I've listed above, and everything here I truly recommend including renting an Airbnb, and staying at the Four Seasons - which sounds like a mess but it really was nice to do both.
P.S. I found out there is one Juiceland location outside of Austin...and it's a 20 minute walk from our place...score!

|It way totally worth it to get to the airport early and have Juliette walk everywhere - she slept the entire flight home and I finally got to watch Sisters!|
