Wow! A year has passed already! It has been such an incredible year with the most amazing man I know! When I use to hear the term, “marry your best friend,” I never really thought that would happen to me. 10 years ago, I met that man and now we are married. This has been such a crazy and amazing 1st year together. I am so blessed and thankful for the life that we have made together. I thank God everyday for bringing him back into my life. Happy Anniversary Babe!! With that being said, we decided to head to Austin for our anniversary! We’ve both heard how amazing the city was, and they were right!! This place was AMAZING!!!!
If you follow my Instagram then you’ve seen most of these photos, but we arrived last Thursday and I can’t even tell you how excited we both were! Thursday we spent the day walking around by our hotel to get a feel for where we were and that night we headed to Foreign and Domestic for dinner! If you ever get the chance to head to Austin you HAVE to check this food out! Holy mouth water it was amazing. Its kind of off the beaten path but it is well worth the trip over there.
The next day we headed out to Franklin’s BBQ, but missed it by 10 mins! Apparently you need to get there before 11 when it opens. The line was out the door and they told us we could wait but it would be 2 hours and we weren’t even guaranteed food. Ha! So, yeah we left after that.
We explored the city for most of the day and wandered around the SOCO District right by our hotel. This place was so cool, with lots of vintage shops, antique stores and great food. Food trucks were a huge part of Austin, in the SOCO District there was a street that was just full of Food Trucks. It was pretty fun hanging around there all day.
We walked along this street for most of the day and I scored the Best gift ever..I got my antlers! Sadly, they are still sitting in the Austin airport at Jet Blue waiting for a Fed Ex number to be shipped out to us. So, lesson learned don’t tell Jet Blue you have horns in your bags or they won’t let you fly!
So there is a bridge that was right next to our hotel called Avenue of the Bats. This bridge is known to have 2 million..that’s right..MILLION bats living under it. One of the things to do while in Austin is see this amazing spectacle at night! I will warn you, if you stand on the bridge they start to fly up at you and let me tell you that was not fun to witness! haha!
We ended our trip by heading to a famous mural that is in Austin. It was the best way to end our trip. Austin, you will be missed but until next time! And Happy 1st Anniversary to the most amazing man ever!!!! Love you!!!
