For the second act in my #NoBrisketLeftBehind tour of Austin, I visited County Line on the Lake. Actually, I was taken there by my wonderful colleagues in the branch I was visiting since it’s one of their favorite lunch spots. It was kind of funny to be like, “Hey guys, I know you don’t know this about me, but please don’t think I’m weird because I’m going to take pictures of my food and post it on the internet, k? K.”
Last week I spent a couple of days in Austin, TX for work. Austin has been on my travel bucket list for YEARS! I’ve heard so many fantastically awesome things about it from so many people, and I just knew I would love it. I mean, what’s not to love about a place where BBQ and tacos are plentiful?! That’s my love language (well, a dialect of it anyway).
Practically as soon as we got off the plane and checked into the hotel, my co-worker and I made a beeline to this taco joint on Congress Avenue she’d had on a previous trip – Guero’s Taco Bar.
The past two weeks of my life have been absolutely insane. There’s no other way to describe it. My friend Colleen won the Jaguars Social League trip to London to see our beloved Jags play the 49ers. That was on the 17th. And then she generously asked me to tag along as her +1.
So on on Friday the 25th, we boarded a plane to London. Once we landed Saturday morning, we showered, took a quick nap and headed to the Pep Rally at Trafalgar Square.
In case you didn’t know, I’m a little tiny bit of a Harry Potter nerd. As in, one of the biggest things I miss about having cable is Harry Potter weekends on ABC Family. On those weekends, I love turning on the TV, watching Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone for the millionth time, and doing my laundry/dishes/writing/photo editing/etc done.
Needless to say, I’ve been DYING to go to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter since it opened at Universal Orlando.
As I previously said, we went to Universal Studios in Orlando over the weekend. I hadn’t been to Universal since I went to Halloween Horror Nights years ago with Sonja (for the record, I was over HHN about 35 seconds after we got there). Before that, I hadn’t been since I was a kid. Anyone else remember when Universal had the Nickelodeon area? I totally do. That was also when SNICK was the coolest and Clarissa was a fashion icon. But I digress.
