It's been a while...anyone out there?

I have the privilege of attending the blogher food party tonight at STUBB' S BBQ and guess who will be there?  Yep - PW, I have seen her and the fam twice now and am COMPLETELY nerding out.

Thanks to my FAB friend and bridesmaid Lemon Nerd aka BEEGE I have a ticket.  She's in town at the conference and snatched up a badge for me!  I am having a FAB time showing her the best Austin sights and restaurants.  We were at Easy Tiger Friday along with my fave Icenhauer's.....

 Easy Tiger snacks - House made chex mix/beef jerkey, pretzels & beer cheese and chimichurri butter grilled corn!  Pair it with a Live Oak Hef or a White Rascal yummmmmm!

More to come on the Stubb's Party tonight and our touristy/amazing Austin weekend!

Linzo says: ZTTB is back bitches - or for the weekend at least.

Pistol Annies


Linzo says: There is no comparison...yes Carrie has a set of pipes and sings a catchy tune (and is a BABE) but Miranda wins.

Best Pizza Ever

Better than any restaurant...

Adapted from the girls at We Are Not Martha...

White Pizza

Bought a pre-made Pizza crust/flatbread from Central Market and bushed it with some crushed garlic cloves we had marinating in a few (more than a few) tablespoons of basil olive oil.  Then we added fresh mozzarella, some roasted garlic, spinach, crimini mushrooms and topped it off with some shaved parmesan.  When it was done we added fresh arugula.  TDF (to die for) not to be confused with DTF.

Linzo says: Pair with a bottle of Pinot Grigio and you're golden!

I love America, I do....

Linzo says:  Now who wants to watch the Sand Lot?  Best 4th of July scene EVER.

new stuff...we got chairs!

Table- handed down from a friend who just bought all new furniture
Chairs- Thanks Four Hands sale!

And a new tray and picture stand from Garden Ridge

If you don't live by a Garden Ridge...I'm sorry.  It's amazing and I once spent almost 2 hours there.

Also- If you don't live by a Whataburger...that sucks because Whatachicken Bites are a culinary masterpiece.

Linzo says:  I might like succulents (and glorified chicken nuggets) just a bit...

sweet little loft...

New Austin Apt...

our view!  slightly different sunset but just as pretty...

living room

damn shelf that's giving me anxiety because I don't know what to do with it...




All prints by one of my VERY talented BFF's....check out LADYBIRD INK right NOW!!!

Linzo says: a brand new loft in the south with granite counter tops and high beamed ceilings > run down beach condo from the early 80's.  MUCH GREATER.  And the room mate is MUCH GREATER too <3

Deep in the Heart of...


 Bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrushes

What is it about Texans and pictures IN the bluebonnets?! I just had to....

 and their pride?  Texans are the proudest people you'll ever meet....

 drive-thru liquor stores

Ohhhhhh TX....

Yes the rumors are true...AFG and I are moving.  To Austin....the OC of Texas.  It will be a bittersweet goodbye as I leave my family and my little beach condo but a fresh start with my love.  NEW job, NEW city (sort of- I grew up in Austin in the late 80's to mid 90's) and NEW apartment together....but (the best part) with OLD friends.  Excited to take this new leap and so so so ready for all the new beginnings that are coming my our way!

Linzo says: CHEERS YA'LL!  Lone Star to the brim???
