To celebrate our five year wedding anniversary, Ryan and I took our first trip without the baby and spent the past couple days in Austin! Why Austin? We wanted to go someplace that we probably would never go to with kids and Austin has always been on our travel bucket list because of the live music and awesome food. We’ve never been to Texas and had the best time.
I missed my boy a lot but he was in great hands with grandma and grandpa and it helped that we could look at him on the baby monitor at night. And we got super cute updates showing our happy baby so we really were able to relax and enjoy our time alone.
Our days in Austin were spent eating, drinking, napping, going out at night to listen to live music and we even saw a movie! Like I said, all of the things are can’t really do at home with a baby (emphasis on the naps!)
And gourmet hot dogs, migas (breakfast tacos), crepes, empanadas, risotto, pizza, giant pretzels with beer cheese, and out of this world pork quesadillas. The food in Austin did not disappoint! Also, there were really great happy hour specials!
Maybe for a different post I’ll write more of a review of Austin and our recommendations. Overall our quick trip away was everything I’d hope it would be! And now I’m back home snuggling this guy.
Saturday night Ryan and I attended our very first beach wedding (I feel like this is a right of passage here) and it did not disappoint! Our neighbors were the ones getting married and it was one of the sweetest, most well planned weddings I’ve ever been to. Here are some of the highlights in pictures!
It doesn’t technically get fall-like for a couple more months here, but the temps did drop from the 90’s to the 80’s which feels refreshingly chilly to us! I’ve been finding myself gravitating to warm recipes like chili, pasta bakes and apple cinnamon steel cut oats for breakfast. Plus I don’t think I’ve had iced coffee in at least a couple weeks! Only hot coffee for these “cool” mornings for me now!
Before the weather gets too fall-like, I wanted to share one last “summer” recipe with you! These easy, flavorful tacos are topped with cool, crunchy slaw. Here’s the recipe!
My big boy is 7 months old today!
Emmett loves when we sing “I’m a little teapot” and continues to love being outside and splashing in the pool. He is eating more solid foods and loves babbling to himself. He sleeps through the night but takes less naps during the day so I’m always trying to find ways to entertain him. He loves chewing on books more than reading them and took his first big boy bath this month! Now that he can sit in the front of the cart at the store, he loves shopping and flirting with strangers. Emmett laughs a ton and we love trying to find new ways to make him giggle.
I just realized I never posted Emmett’s final pictures from his 6 month photo shoot with Sable and Lace Photography!
On Fridays, Emmett and I try to make it to Mommy and Me Yoga at our local studio. It’s so dang cute and a really good workout for me because I’m doing yoga with a 20 pound baby! Emmett loved yoga this morning and was so smiley and giggly. Here he was just hanging out on the mat before class started.
