It’s been a couple weeks and I (once again) loved looking through the Instagram photos to see what’s been happening in our world. It’s always a whirlwind and full of chaos but at least our lives don’t lack constant entertainment.
We are very fortunate to live right off of South Congress in Austin (a.k.a SOCO). Daily we take a walk up the street for eating, shopping and entertainment. It’s beyond convenient and so nice to be able to live is such a great neighborhood. The 10th annual Hot Rod Round Up was back and wow…what great fun. I’m not a big car person but it’s still entertaining and the people watching is phenomenal. Guero’s Taco bar is a hot spot for us. Drinks, music & fun for the whole family to enjoy! We’ve been going for so many years that most the staff (bartenders mainly) know our kids by name…such comfort. Clay & I headed to the East Side for drinks on Friday (another one of our fave areas) and love that you can get beautiful views of the river over there. And then it’s all about Willie…the revealing of the statue outside of the new ACL Live theater. How great is this?!?!?!? A few months back, Clay & I went to the first show at the theater to see Willie himself. Great times!
Love this pic of Lola acting like a “goof pot”. We also hosted a play-date (Lord…I never thought I would find myself using this term…scary!). The girls had a ton of fun. I also took the kids to Amy’s Ice Cream / Phil’s Ice House for food and treats and playtime. Finally, got love the hat on Gainesy…he’s a piece of work!
If you remember from the first instagram post, I was up in my ears in clothes as I was trying to change out my closets from fall/winter to spring/summer. This challenge is finally complete and I love busting out my spring dresses and sandals. I’ve also been on a search for a great pattern jean and chose the dot jean from Anthropologie. Last weekend I had a bachelorette party for a good friend and sported my animal print jeans (some of my faves) and paired with a denim pearl snap from American Eagle and we were off to rock the town (granted I was back home in bed by 11:00 reading my book…old dog in the house but young at heart). Then there is arm candy….always have to sport the arm candy.
I must confess I have a bit of obsession for shoes. Whether it be for me or my little guys, I’m all about them. I finally found the perfect pair of bold floral sandals at Aldo Shoes…SCORE! Also, love the new additions to my little guy’s shoe collection (strangely, I invest more in my son’s shoes than my daughter’s). Then there were the bright loafers I adored also spotted at Aldo. Finally, my favorite pair of booties from Anthropologie…These babies can spunk up just about any outfit. They were great in fall/winter with tights and I’ve also found they are fun to pair with spring outfits too. Love!
That’s it for now folks. Can you believe how much can happen in a matter of weeks. Too much fun!
