Last week was my birthday and naturally I had to escape for a little. Casey and I went to Austin for a long weekend and it was a blast. We tried Airbnb for the first time – we stayed in an adorable casita in South Austin and it was amazing. Of course we hit up all our favorite places (Homeslice, Mellow Johnny’s, Jo’s, Torchy’s) and tried some new ones. We kicked off our stay with a truly religious experience, Franklin Barbecue. It was so rad and we made some new friends waiting in line for 3 hours.

We went to Barton Springs for the first time (nothing like cold water on a 106 degree Texas day)! We also tried Gordough’s gourmet donuts (serious NOMS) and went to a place called Bacon. Yes, that exists. Yes, Casey and I feel the need to detox from our trip. We both actually went to work out almost immediately after we got home.

Happy early birthday to MEEE! Casey got me Postal Service tickets for my birthday (even though they played at the beginning of the month and my birthday isn’t until the end of the month).

It was definitely and amazing experience. I also have a mad girl crush on Jenny Lewis – she is undeniably cool. Plus, I like to think of my girl scouts experience like Troop Beverly Hills.
