Couple of pictures from anniversary weekend.
1. Taking a walk through the flower field, and naming all the flowers we know.
2. Visits to all the small town Texas shops.
3. Dinner out of Johnny Appleseed’s hat with the most handsome guy in the world.
One of my favorite people to follow on instagram is Folk Fibers. She makes the most gorgeous quilts, with fabric she dyes using natural bits. Plus, she lives near Austin. This past weekend, we stopped by the Northern Grade market downtown, and she was there! With her quilts! AHHHHH!!!! The quilts are even more beautiful in person. Here is a picture of me just super happy standing in front of this masterpiece.
We decided our summer thing (sometimes we skip spring here, so we need to plan early) is to go get pie. I LOVE pie. Pie is perfect. It fits any occasion, season, mood. Pie is happiness, and I want perfume that smells like it.
Our first pie adventure was to Quack’s Bakery. It was a not too warm evening, and we sat outside, sharing pie with friends. We shared a slice of peach pie and chocolate cream. And somehow the air vents wafted fresh pie right past our noses, and I wanted to camp in their parking lot forever.
(second photo from here) I was too busy deciding on types of pie to be bothered with photos.
This is a pillow for a little longhorn. One of our friend’s brought over a naked pillow. Her little guy uses it in the car, and it needed a cover. They are big Longhorn fans, so I added a big friendly face to some grey fleece, and sewed a simple pillow cover. Ready for lots of car napping, which I was excellent at when I was little.
The guy won some tickets to a SXSW concert, so we decided to take a little impromptu adventure into that craziness!
We went European and walked a couple blocks to the bus stop, and then rode the bus downtown. It was nice to get some walking in, and the weather was good for it too. It actually wasn’t overwhelmingly crazy downtown. We got to stand in the VIP line, because we were so important, so that probably helped a bit. I am not a tall person, so I sometimes get super overwhelmed in crowds. We had a really fun evening of people watching, music enjoying, and laser light shows!
I stole most of these photos from the guy’s insta-g. He was a most artistic and handsome photographer for our evening.
This is the amount of snow substance that shuts the city down here. Here are some other snowstorm pictures from Austin. It was pretty chilly though, so I sweatered up and drank lots of tea.
Now today, the forecast is sunny and seventy, so we’ll have to say goodbye to the snow soon!
This week we went to Blue Star Cafeteria. We drank our coffee, and I was jealous of his cheese grits. (But he’s the best so he shared with me.)
This past Saturday we went and got dinner with Ross, but it wasn’t just any dinner. It was a lobster dinner at Quality Seafood to take advantage of their Saturday special and it was quite delicious. We got there right before the crowd so were lucky enough to not wait long and grab a table to eat our lobster and fried okra. We will definitely be going back because how many places do you get to go where you get to play with your food before you eat it? If you want a lobster close-up, check out the girl’s lobster saying hello!
A very excited Ross to be reunited with his Maine lobster.
We ventured out into the heat over the weekend, and had ourselves a lobster dinner at Quality Seafood. We drive by it occasionally, so this time, we actually went inside. Seafood is delicious.
