Hanging with my Parents

The final day before my parents left, we had plans to go to another large brewery with a farm. Don’t fix what ain’t broke, right? Well I guess it was! We had been looking forward to exploring Vista Brewery, but after several days of lots of driving everyone agreed they were tired and needed aContinue reading “Hanging with my Parents”

Breweries ( & Distilleries) Galore

Breweries and distilleries are popular for obvious reasons and in Austin, there’s practically one on every street corner. There are a lot in the city itself, but while my parents were visiting, we decided to check some out on the southern outskirts of Austin. We ended up visiting two places during the week, both inContinue reading “Breweries ( & Distilleries) Galore”

Taking it Easy

One of the requests my parents had before they came down was to have time to just sit outside and relax. The hubby spent the day smoking a brisket for dinner, meanwhile my dad made banana pancakes for breakfast. I haven’t had pancakes in forever! Yum! Our plan for the rest of the day wasContinue reading “Taking it Easy”

Planning a trip!

Is there anything more delicious than planning a trip right now? The hubby and I have been talking for a while about going somewhere. Anywhere. We’ve been married a year and have barely left our house. We didn’t even get to go on our honeymoon. We were supposed to go to Portugal for a beautifulContinue reading “Planning a trip!”

Party in the Driveway

The last time I hung out with someone was close to Halloween! It is crazy to think about how long we’ve been in isolation. I am lucky to have friends who are just as cautious as I am, which puts my anxiety at ease over COVID. Our friends sit across from us on the driveway,Continue reading “Party in the Driveway”

A Little Walk with My Little Love

If you come to my house on any given day, you might find a black and white cat sitting in the living room ( and whining) at the back door. This would be my fur baby, Max. Max has been an indoor kitty his whole life. Once we moved to Texas, he had the opportunityContinue reading “A Little Walk with My Little Love”

What a relief!

On Sunday, the sun came out. It was a beautiful 75 degrees! It was a huge relief to be back to the weather we know and love. Of course Texas still has a long way to go before getting back to normal and recovering from the storm, but it is a huge step in theContinue reading “What a relief!”

Lavender Update

It’s been a while since I updated y’all on my lavender plants. I started them maybe about a year ago at this point? It was around the time that COVID began making the rounds. Gosh, has it been that long already?? Anyway, there were several attempts made and a bunch that were unsuccessful, but weContinue reading “Lavender Update”

A Happy Walk

For a while, the hubby and I had been exploring new trails around the area every weekend, but over time we got a little lazy and just went back to our closest park ( which is super lovely). This past weekend we decided to try someplace new again. And we were rewarded! It was anContinue reading “A Happy Walk”

Plants planted!

I am excited to share with you that our little seedlings have left the nest! Sam ( my husband) built an absolutely humongous wooden planter box. It has been glued, nailed, drilled, lined and stapled. There was some hard work that went in to it but it looks pretty awesome! We carried it out ofContinue reading “Plants planted!”
