For Labor Day weekend, Yung and I decided to head down to Austin for a couple days. Here are a few “firsts” that happened on the trip:
-We climbed Enchanted Rock.
-Then we waited 30+ minutes for a snow cone.
-I had ice cream made with goat cheese, thyme, and honey. I couldn’t tell whether I loved it or whether I wanted to throw up. Although I love goat cheese, I have decided that cheese does not belong in ice cream. Stick to the basics, people!
-We had 2 fried eggs on top of some delicious french fries.
-We visited the state capitol building.

Here’s a list of restaurants we hit, places we visited, and where we stayed:
Sites we saw:
Czech stop in West-Does it count when we just looked at the food, instead of waiting in the line that wrapped around the bakery to order a kolache?
Magnolia-Does it count that we only saw the outside? The line to get in circled around the parking lot.
South Congress Ave
6th Street-We walked all the way from South Congress to 6th street. It was interesting to see the neighborhoods change from hipster to upscale to crazy.
Hamilton Pool-I know it doesn’t count when we were not allowed into the park because it was full.
Where we stayed:
All in all, Austin treated us very well. We hit lines almost everywhere we went, and the holiday traffic was a beating, but it was a great way to kick off the fall season <3 I was even able to finish an entire book, so it was definitely a win-win weekend for me.
