Weekend Recap

We had a super fun weekend with friends and family in and around Austin!  The hill country is beautiful this time of year with wild flowers blooming everywhere.  Shocking that I love the wildflowers, I know.  The reason for our trip was the wedding of our friends David and Aerin.

The happy couple.

I will share lots of pictures and details about their wedding on Thursday's blog post, so be sure to stop back by the blog then.

While we were in Austin, the husband wanted to visit the Austin Homebrew Supply.  Even though I don't brew beer, I have to say it was a cool place to visit.

If you prefer to make wine, they can help you with that also.  Cheese to pair with your wine?  Yep, they have you covered there too.

Austin Homebrew has the dry ingredients for beer ready for weighing and packaging for your special recipe.  Their staff is also available to answer all your questions.

Daniel picked up a couple of items and I picked up this sticker for his brew station since I am always decorating.

You are welcome!
We had delicious Mexican food at Polvos on Saturday.  I had never heard of potato flautas, so I had to order them.  They were delicious as were the margaritas.

The gang

Saturday evening was the wedding and we all had a great time.

Kasey and me decked out.

Sunday the husband and I headed to Palmetto State Park to have lunch with family.  In case you were wondering why it is named after the palmetto, wonder no more.

The hiking trails are pretty much cut through the palmettos.  We had a gorgeous day for hiking and lunching outdoors.

My cousin Beth and me.

Beth served up brisket, sausage, grilled veggies and salad.  Yummy.  And then we walked it all off through the park.

So pretty.  It was a fantastic weekend.

I hope you had a great one too!
