A Baby Free Weekend

Hello Blog Friends!

It’s been a busy month and I’ve neglected the blog a bit, per the usual! 🙂

A couple of weekends ago, The Hubby and I went to Austin for an adult weekend! This was the first time we’ve left her for more than 1 night!! Of course I missed her and checked in on her often, but it was good for us to have a baby free weekend….and not have to carry the diaper bag around for a couple days. 🙂

This was my first time visiting Austin, so I was excited to check out the city! We got in around dinnertime the first night, so we dropped off our stuff at our rental house and headed out to eat!

I’m seriously always craving Mexican food…cheese and meat, mmmmm!

We found this cute Tex Mex restaurant and I think I ate an entire bowl of queso before the meal arrived. Oops.

After dinner, we walked around a bit and found this cute rooftop with an awesome view of the city. The hubby had some drinks and I sipped on my water before I was back in bed by 11 (which is really late for me!!)

Luckily we woke up to some sunshine!!

I’m obsessed with local coffee shops and was happy we found this one. Mozart’s Coffee is located on Lake Austin and has a huge patio outside- (it’s close to the UT campus so there were a lot of college kids taking over the tables studying). Luckily we found a spot in the sun and took our time people watching and drinking our morning coffee. I love mornings like that. And when did college kids start looking so young?!

After our coffee date, we headed over to South Congress Street to walk around. Since the weather was so gorgeous, we wanted to be outside as much as possible! We found a cute little farmer’s market and walked around there for a bit!

There are food trucks galore in Austin- seriously everywhere. I think you could get away with eating all meals from a food truck!

This one was by far my favorite! Yum!

For dinner that evening we went to the Laundrette. It is tucked away in the middle of a neighborhood and was converted from an old laundromat. Super cute and good food.

 The next morning, I was anxious to get back to Miss Charlotte, so we stopped by one more coffee shop before we hit the road.

I love all the fancy lattes!

Of course the weekend went by so fast and we were reunited with this cutie pants before we knew it!

I’m busy enough with teaching Stroller Strides, working at Pure Barre, and keeping up with Charlotte…..well I decided to add something else to my plate! This month I started as a consultant for Rodan+Fields, which is a skincare line created by the two doctors that founded ProActive. It’s been overwhelming, exciting, scary but also really fun so far! {And don’t worry, this blog won’t turn into a Rodan+Fields marketing blog}, I just wanted to share what else is going on in my life and keeping me busy!

I use the products myself and really enjoy them so it’s easy to get behind this company! 🙂 If you are interested or know someone that would be feel free to check out my site listed below. There are products for anything and everything!
