While planning for a trip to Austin with my fabulous coworkers for a Kidd’s Kids retreat, I went to my best friend since high school, Bailee, for suggestions. Bailee is not only an attorney in Houston but she is also a foodie, pop culture aficionado, and knows what’s cool way before it’s cool. You’ll be seeing more of her as she posts more on my blog and I know you’ll love her as much as I do! Anyway, after she gave me an overload of incredible information, I thought that I shouldn’t be selfish and keep all this great info to myself, so I’m sharing it with you, my fabulous readers!
Greetings from Austin!!
Just kidding, I’m actually writing to you from Houston! But as a Texas Ex and an admirer of all things Austin, Caroline has asked me to put together a “Dallas Girl’s Guide to Austin”. My parents have lived in Austin since 2006 and I started at The University of Texas in 2008. And although I attended grade school and high school in DFW, Austin has become home. I will admit the bias is real and Austin is definitely my favorite Texas city, so Texas Fight and all that fun stuff!
Now, I’m all for “Keeping Austin Weird”, but for the Dallas girl that isn’t into the crunchy-granola Austin scene, there is still plenty of fun to be had. Austin is only 3 hours down the road, so here are my suggestions for a quick weekend getaway!
