Rainbows and Flowers

I apologize for my lack of posts but I have been so caught up with work being that it's TAKS week for the kiddos. Teachers have the luxury of being with their students the ENTIRE day...that means having to eat lunch with them and there's no Fine Arts period due to testing. Thank god it'll all be over tomorrow. I mean, can you imagine being cooped up in a room with 21 hyper 6-7 year olds?

So over the weekend, 2 other couples and my boyfriend decided to rent a house in Austin for the weekend to get away and relax. The city of Austin is just an overall beautiful city so it's so easy to pack up my bags and make a trip up there. The city is just filled with different cultures, individuality, it's carefree, go-green environment. The people are super friendly and the weather we had this weekend was just so amazing. And not to mention the food is delicious. The city has just so many different, unique food places to try that there's never enough time to go and try it out!

But with the limited time we had, we only got to go to some of the usual places that I always love going back too. I feel like I'd be betraying it if I didn't pay a visit while I was there.

Above- Dulce de Leche flavored Sno Cones // Below- Black Cherry flavored Sno Cones

@ Barton Springs. The water was too cold to swim in but good for dipping your feet in.

@ More Home Slice. // hamburger meat & onion flavor pizza. Deeelicious!

Across the street was a market we decided to check out. There were a lot of cute unique pieces.

Can't leave Austin without Momokos

My lover and I on 6th street

Shorts & Top- F21 // Boots- Arturo Chiang // Bag- Michael Kors // Watch- Skagen

Above- Granny's Pie // Below- Flying Pig (read description of the menu posted above)

We really wanted to eat the Mother Clucker but it was going to take at least 30 minutes for the chicken to defrost. I know what you're thinking...chicken on your donut?? Believe me when I say's freaking amazzzzzzzzing!

If you ever head to Austin, make a stop at Rudy's for some Moist Brisket and Cream of Corn. mmMmm


And here I am now at the end of my entry to leave you with a smile on your face from my students :)
