Birthday Weekend!

Two weekends ago, Josh took me to Austin for my birthday. He took Friday off & we drove up, dropped Sage off with my parents, then went to have a fun time together! I documented our trip well with pictures, so here we go!

We drove to the mall & picked up our movie tickets to see When in Rome!

Then we ate in the food court - I got this South Philly Cheesesteak, which is the REAL kind mind you, just like we had in Philadelphia!

We walked around a bit & I got a nice calf massage by the iSqueeze - ahh.

We saw the movie, which was cute! Then went to get some cupcakes at Sugar Mama's Bakery in the South Congress area. They were super yummy! Mine was vanilla on vanilla, called the Marilyn of course!

I loved these hanging light things in there!

We checked in to our hotel downtown, the Intercontinental Stephen F. Austin (yay for getting deals on Priceline!) & I took a nice nap, then we headed to dinner at Sandra Bullock's restaurant, Bess Bistro. It was yummy & a cool atmosphere. I got chicken pot pie & Josh got fish & chips.

We got a taxi there & back so we wouldn't have to pay for parking, & what came to pick us up but the Land Yacht, party central! It was funny. Loud music, crazy colors, all wasted on us just wanting to get back to our hotel!

This was the view from the hotel balcony toward the Capitol. Pretty!

The next morning, we slept in, checked out of our hotel then headed to brunch at Magnolia Cafe. I got the guacamole omelette - guac, black beans, bacon, & jack cheese, with queso on top. SOOO GOOD!

Driving toward the Capitol to take a tour - pretty view!

After our tour of the Capitol, we went to the Domain & pretended like we could afford to be there, then went out to my parents house to ride with them to one of the best meals of my life...

THIS!! Crab, asparagus, & sweet potato fries, finished with French press coffee & a birthday dessert! My dad's birthday was last week, so we always get together to do a joint birthday dinner... this was a good one!!

Then we went back to get Sage & headed back to SA so we could be at church the next morning. It was a very fun birthday weekend!!
