Austin Getaway

Last week was filled with so much excitement!  I still can't believe that I launched my website on my birthday!!!  The moment I hit LIVE, all I wanted to do was take a nap.  

But there's no way I was going to do that.  I quickly told my husband that I wanted to celebrate by getting away to Austin!!! 

Austin is the perfect getaway! 

Our first stop was El Chipiron.  It's classic Spanish food presented with a modern flare.  I ordered: queso de Cabra con nueces, Gazpacho, Empanadillas de cerdo y pimentón, and Patatas Bravas.  The hubby and I loved it!  I'm not a goat cheese fan but this was good!  Everything was fresh and presented nicely.  

My girls had been snacking the whole drive down to Austin so we didn't push for them to try the food.  It was my birthday and I just wanted everything to go smoothly :)

We were in a rush to finish because I wanted to go swimming in the Barton Springs pool.  I had heard rumors that the water was cold... I confirmed that rumor is true!  The water was extremely cold!  But we still had tons of fun and the girls loved looking for fishes.  The highlight of our swimming experience was that at night  people randomly started howling!  #keepaustinweird :) I guess we went on a night with a full moon.?! lol

As we were leaving the park we realized that Zilker Hillside Theatre productions was presenting,  "All Shook Up."  It is a new twist on Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. I hope that you get a chance to go experience it.  I had a blast!  It will be showing Thursdays- Sundays from now until August 18th starting at 8:15pm.   

This was definitely one of my best birthdays!  I'm so grateful for everyone who has helped champion the launch of my website.  Thanks for making my birthday memorable!!!
