We enjoyed waffles this morning from John Besh’s My Family Table. (THANKS Granaghans!) And will probably be lounging around the fire today, staying clear of the cold, wet weather. Although Taylor did unexpectedly inform me over the waffles this morning that his plans for the day include color coordinating his closet. I’ve always admired his ambition.

I just enjoyed a girl’s trip to New York! Not only was it a fun time with family but I got to see some great shows and see two of my best friends while I was there!

Making some time for traditional Christmas treat decorating was a must.

Merry Christmas!

We had a great weekend.
Because a work trip Taylor went on during the week returned later than expected on Friday and there was a private party monopolizing the place on Saturday, we were unable to try Fearings as we’d planned. We did experience some great drinks at bar scene late night however which alone was a treasure trove of people watching. On Saturday, after room service and massages we stopped for lunch at Eatzi’s before heading to the fair. Eatzi’s? Hello are you listening? Please come to Austin.

Did not try fried beer, but I did enjoy fried oreos!

We got the pic with Big Tex, rode the ferris wheel and met some livestock including the Grand Champion pig {or rather, barrow} named Sirius Black. Would love to meet the high school girl who named and cared for that porker. We also saw ducklings and the little pot-bellied piglets pictured above.

Oh and I won Carlton. As you can see, he enjoyed the ferris wheel too, cruised around in my purse and partook in our Saturday night take out in dinner. After the fair we visited our friends Rex and Kylee at their new house, watched some Aggie football and finally met their baby, Malley. Who sweetly took a nap in my arms.

Treats!

{4} Cookies found in our room the night we arrived. We think {or hope} they were from JD’s Chippery.

{1} For what may be a new vacation tradition, we strolled to nearby Morton’s, ordered to go, enjoying some cocktails and ambiance at the bar while we waited, and then set up dinner in our hotel room. We enjoyed the vino we’d selected from Eatzi’s and I dined in my cozies. I did not wear heels or chandelier earrings. #perfection. Take that, Dallas. Taylor served as the sommelier for the evening.

{2} Saturday morning we met Hope, Will and Devin for brunch at Bread Winner’s and the cinnamon roll I told Taylor to get as a “side” after seeing them in the front bakery was the size of a volleyball. Yet amazingly fluffy. Before savoring my eggs over medium with toast, potatoes and a bran muffin, I enjoyed all the cranberry, blueberry and banana breads they set out for the table. Bread won that day for sure.

{3} The trip home found us a Dublin Dr. Pepper {meaning made with real imperial sugar} in an unassuming bottle around, unsurprisingly, Dr. PepperLandWaco. Too bad they’re not nearly that easy to come by in Austin!
