Hello sunshines! SO excited to share part 2 of my LONG Austin post, which is all about where and what Mr. P and I ate & drank and places we knew we had to see. A bit about the logistics, because Austin doesn’t have Uber or Lyft, we hopped in a cab from the airport it was a quick ~15 mins ride before we arrived at our hotel in the center of the city, the Omni Austin Downtown (on San Jacinto Blvd). We did not rent a car because there were sufficient rideshare apps (we downloaded Fasten, Ride Austin, and Fare) to get us around town if walking was not feasible. That being said, we tried to walk as much as possible. We did a significant amount of research on all the best food spots from Eater, The Thrillist, Austin food blogs, and recommendations from friends. The restaurants that need reservations are noted below with an asterisk*. Since it was storming & bad weather in Austin the weekend we were there, we knew our agenda would revolve around food. Saturday: Our first stop after dropping off our luggage was of course Tex-Mex! Having lived in Dallas a couple of years, Mr. P was super excited about Tex-Mex.

Austin (Part 1) – Street Art & Murals

Hello sunshines! I am so excited to share with you all our most recent trip to Austin, Texas! I decided to split this LONG blog post into two parts because I had way too much to write and way too many pictures to show. Part 1, this post, will be all about the awesome street art & murals that Mr. Photographer (aka Mr. P) and I found while walking around the city! Part 2, which will post this weekend, will be about where and what we ate & drank and places we knew we had to see. Many of you know that I get super excited about finding cool street art & murals. I could not believe my luck as we stumbled across a total of 11 pieces of art; well, 10 to be exact, since the Hope Outdoor Gallery was already on my list :). Living the Goodlife in Austin, TX – E.
