Austin.. girls trip 2013

Back to Austin.. but this time JUST for fun!

We left on Tuesday and slowly meandered out way out 290!  We stopped to eat at Chuy's  YUMMMO, we stopped at Chappel Hill for pastries, and blueberry jalepeno jam (um, yes, please).

Next, we hit up the BLUE BELL FACTORY... because Vickie had never been!!

We were near Giddings and Kaitlin yelled out Trash to Treasure that is WHERE JUNK GYPSIES shop!!!  So we turned around headed for it... unfortunately they were closed, but we went to the shop next door and Kate found a few little treasures...

We got to the hotel and chilled, then we headed out to dinner at Threadgills.

It was SOO good.  Really it is all about the southern veggie dishes.  ALL 27 choices. 

garlic cheesy grits
Texas Caviar
macaroni and cheese
San Antonio squash casserole ( um, yes, please)
broccoli rice casserole
sweet potato fries
spinach casserole
stewed okra and tomatoes
butter beans

the list goes ON and ON... YUMMO!

Wednesday morning we woke up and had a great breakfast... I love omelet stations!

We headed to the Capitol because Vickie had never been in it before and of course it is a must!

next we headed to a few food trucks!  We tried Dosa this time, sort of like crepe filled with Indian good.  Good but spicy!

We headed to a few of the shops on South Congress...

This was the Big Top Candy/ Soda Shop... they had some cool stuff!
