We all got in Friday afternoon & headed straight to the Hula Hut. Out on Lake Austin, this place is gorgeous & the margaritas are banging. The party house we had for the weekend was near-by in an adorable 60's style neighborhood. My MOH found it on Turnkey & we all ran around oohing & ahhhhing. After sprucing up from a day of travel, we headed out for a chill night on Rainey Street. This part of town is so cute, lined with unique bars. We started the night in a bar made of shipping containers (aptly named Container Bar, duh), & then hopped from place to place on our own little pub crawl. Highlights were dancing to Mo-town music at The Blackheart (thanks DJ Gross Y'all) & dinner at Banger's (amazing sausages, over 100 beers on tap & the place had its own dog park!!)

Saturday started with a Tex-Mex hangover cure at Maudie's (um, YUM!) & continued with shopping along South Congress (so many shops!) & a tour of the city's murals (OB.SESSED). I could have stayed all day in Uncommon Objects (couldn't take pictures inside, dagnabit!), but couldn't complain that we moved on to refresh with margaritas and music at the Guero's Taco Bar outdoor concert area. I might have also drank lemonade while dressed as a lemon (@ Austin City Lemons) & then topped it off with Amy's Ice Cream (again, YUM!).
We tracked down the Austin postcard mural & the Bread + Butter mural & then moseyed back home for some girl time. My ladies threw me a sweet (& sassy!) lingerie shower & tossed in a total surprise too. They had video-taped Tyler answering questions about me & I had to try to answer them, Newlywed Game style! I learned some things (AKA he hates this vest) & laughed a lot!
