Monday, September 17, 2012 we come!

We have some lovely friends who migrated to Austin a couple years back. I've heard many-a-great-thing about this city. Well, turns out after a brisket bender this past Labor Day weekend, my husband grew a BBQ tooth and is now on a mission to get the entire family to Austin come this November. Truthfully, I've always wanted to visit and eat my way through every nook and cranny of the city while listening to amazing music and taking in the scene. We have built-in guides to the city which is always nice however there is one thing holding me back...

Are we nuts to bring a toddler and a three month old on a plane? On a family vaca this soon?

And if you've been to Austin...where do you recommend eating, sleeping, fun-ing? Is it family friendly?

Gimme the scoop....! xo

  1. Yahooo!! I just love Austin and need to get down there as well. And you are picking a great time to go!!! We always stay downtown but I'll see what my friend who is from there suggests. You have got to get Tex-Mex. I'll email you a list of good places! xo

  2. One of my dearest friends just moved to Austin and can't say enough amazing things about it. A trip in the near future is on our radar as well! In the meantime, I remember this post - might be a starting point:

  3. I've never been to Austin but would love to go on a BBQ trip!

    My crazy Italian friend traveled from Singapore to Bali with a 2 month old and went from Singapore to Italy/England with a 2 month old and 2 year old. If you want to travel, just do it!
