Weekend Recap: Austin, TX Part 2

On Sunday morning, we went to brunch at 24 Diner. It was incredible - to say the least! We all shared a bottle of champagne for mimosas and I had the veggie hash. The caramelized onions, spinach, jalapenos, avocado, and runny eggs were the best. Aaron had the chicken and waffles which didn't look too shabby either!

After brunch, we walked to Baylor Street to see the Hope Outdoor Gallery which are these huge walls that are open to the public to do street art. Sadly my boots wouldn't allow me to climb the steep sides to the top, but I enjoyed the view anyways. I did NOT enjoy the view of some girl doing a photo shoot topless with chains and black baseball bats. Seems like the middle of a Sunday probably wasn't the best time for her to "model." :)

Afterwards we headed to South Congress Street to walk around. Of course we had to get our picture in front of the Austin postcard #tourists! We got so lucky and had 80 degree weather while in Austin! 

We went into The Big Top Candy Shop. Although we didn't buy anything, the vintage decor and smells were awesome.

Afterwards we went back to the house and enjoyed the sunshine. Well I did...everyone else sat in the shade. :)

On our last night, we went to Mount Bonnell to watch the sunset. Aaron and Sarah were gracious enough to share a bottle of champagne that they got when they bought their house with us!!! Such great hosts, hey?

Pretty dreamy!
Our last stop for dinner was Torchy's Tacos. I got the "fried avocado" and the "independent" tacos. They were sooo good. I'm bummed that ATL doesn't have a Torchy's!

Stay tuned for the last part of our Austin, TX trip!
