I wish we were not under a dangerous heat warning otherwise I would love to move my kitchen table outside and have a little summer dessert gathering with friends this weekend as seen here via Hometown Girl.
The past few days have been a whirlwind with a quick trip to house hunt in Austin. So excited, that we get to call this city home in a few weeks or months. I feel this move will never happen or at least not to my time frame, it's not happening quick enough!
We ate at some really fun places which I highly recommend you checking out if you are ever in Austin!
The first place to make my list was Annies Cafe and Bar located on Congress. The views outside give you a straight on view with the Capital. We had breakfast here on Sunday morning and the food was delicious and the service was outstanding. Very child friendly especially during breakfast time.
Another popular must place to eat and see was Salt Lick BBQ. A lot of people bring their own alcohol and enjoy sharing a pack of beer with friends amongst picnic tables listening to the live music which was fantastic. So many kids were running around and dancing while you sit and listen to the music until your table is ready. They also have a kids play area which is nice for the older kids. If you don't bring your own alcoholic beverages you purchase on site. The brisket here is AHHMAZING!! I am not much of a BBQ person but this was so good I can't wait to eat here again. Again, great food, service and very kid friendly. Def a must place to take out of town guests.
Another hot place that came highly recommended and I can see why was Hopdoddy burger bar. Don't let the line out the door scare you as it really does move fast! They not only have tasty burgers but also have a tuna and turkey burger available. The burgers are huge and served on homemade buns. Very delicious! If you are traveling with a little one they offer a storage closet for your strollers and also have clip on high chairs.
and of course I had to scope out the cupcake scene. I saw lots of dessert and cupcake trailers but the one that caught my eye was Hey Cupcake! They have several trailers around town but how could I say no when one is parked next to our realtor's office?!
We bought a Michael Jackson and John Lemon cupcake. They both were delicious.
Thanks to all the wonderful food finds on pinterest and having some down time I am finally making my way thru my Meals I want to Make board. The next one up for this week will be this delicious looking caprese dip!
Also, how easy are these caprese pops! Perfect for summer entertaining!
PS: If you are on pinterest let me know! I would love to follow you.
Chris and I celebrated our 5 yr wedding anniversary on Saturday at the Biltmore Resort. We rented a private cabana where we enjoyed a full day relaxing by the pool, a pitcher of sangria with fish tacos, and a champagne toast in the afternoon with a yummy fruit and cheese platter. We ended our evening with a sunset, row boat ride on Tempe Town Lake.
Here you will find an assortment of what is currently inspiring me in my life: cupcakes, parties, fashion, inspirational quotes, and the joys of being a first time mom!
