Times are a Changing

I have been shamefully quiet this past week. The hubby and I have been juggling a lot of balls in the air these last few weeks. One of the big changes that we have been dealing with is selling our house! It is very exciting! Anyone who has moved knows how much work is involved.Continue reading “Times are a Changing”

Craft

There is a really cool place here in Austin called Craft. It is a crafter’s dream. All of the art supplies you could dream of and more, are super organized in large studio. The best part? You get to have fun, be creative, make a mess but don’t have to clean it up after!! TheContinue reading “Craft”

Family BBQ

Having my sister around is a perfect excuse to get together with even more family! A first cousin, once removed and her husband live on the opposite end of Austin from us, and another first cousin twice removed recently moved here. Got that? No? Neither did I. Here’s a chart: Whatever their relation to us,Continue reading “Family BBQ”

Tillie’s is down in an area called Dripping Springs, about 45 minutes south of downtown Austin but a world away. It feelsContinue reading “Tillie’s”

Uchi

Uchi is one of the best restaurants in Austin, Texas. It was the place that put food on the map here. After Uchi came, other good restaurants followed. Despite living here about 8 years, tonight was my first time eating at Uchi. SO GOOD. Sam and I had been to Uchiko, it’s sister restaurant beforeContinue reading “Uchi”

Austin Opera

Yay! My parents are here! It feels like forever since we have seen them. They came down to celebrate my mom’s birthday and Mother’s Day. To celebrate, we went to the Opera on Sunday night. The wonderful and dramatic ( like all operas) Tosca by Puccini. It was the first performance since the opera hadContinue reading “Austin Opera”
