Austin Top 10

Because I loved it so much, I wanted to do something cool to summarize my trip to Austin the other weekend for one of my best friend's bachelorette celebration. Obviously I didn't come up with anything ground-breaking but have narrowed it down to these top 10 photos that serve to summarize what we did, where we went and others that remain on my to-do list for when I am able to return. At the conclusion of this post I've bucketed it into where to stay, eat, drink etc. in case you are going to Austin soon. And if you aren't, you should. It's awesome.

  1. It looks like you had such a fabulous time. I'll need to try some of these places, Franks sounds divine! Funny that I live here and I still have a never ending list of places to see and eat at. Can't believe we just missed each other at Lustre Pearl. Next time you make it down here, we must get together! xox
