austin, texas!

we made it to austin! the flight was uneventful, which is always a good thing. my friend lindsay picked us up, which was really awesome and nice of her!

it a took a while for us to figure out what to do. we didn't want to deal with the hassle of going downtown because of sxsw/st. patty's day. we eventually decided to head to bouldin creek coffeehouse.
i've always wanted to go there, but just haven't gotten around to it.

the place was really cute, definitely had an "austin vibe."

bouldin creek coffeehouse
eric was hungry when we arrived and ordered the vegan tamales. we weren't sure what to expect, and they came with vegan queso as well. they turned out really yummy though.

bouldin creek coffeehouse
i wasn't too hungry, but couldn't pass up the opportunity to order a peanut butter chocolate cupcake. it was delicious. i really want to go back before we leave and eat some more cupcakes.

we love our lonestar
numerous lonestars were drank. who would have thought we would miss such a terrible/watered down beer?

nothing too crazy happened last night, and we went to bed at a decent hour.

eric and i woke up this morning starving and decided to go get breakfast.
on our walk i spotted this lonestar billboard...had to take a picture.

wheatsville co-op
we walked to wheatsville, which is a few blocks from my brother's apartment.
they expanded wheatsville recently and i hadn't been.

bulk bins
it was really awesome/nice inside. i miss bulk bins for everything. philly has bulk bins, but not for EVERYTHING.
i went around the store making a mental list of all the things i need to buy before we fly back to philly.

vegan breakfast tacos
for breakfast we settled on tacos, i got potatoes and rice, eric got vegan sausage and potatoes. they were really good.

carrot cake
we also picked up a slice of carrot cake.

well we are headed out for the day. tex-mex, beer, and music are on the agenda.

ALSO, my cousin elizabeth is currently in labor! hopefully baby heath arrives in the next few hours and we will have another addition to our family!
