Austin for the day

1/7/12

It couldn't have been a more perfect day for a little trip to Austin! The sun was shining, there was some good shopping to be done, oh and let's not forget the eating! One of the greatest things about being in Killeen is being so close to one of my favorite cities...Austin! It's only an hour away!


After making my necessary stops (REI, Lululemon, and Book People) I ventured to the mecca of all of Austin...South Congress St. A stop at my favorite Coffee place (Jo's) for a Turbo and then some really great window shopping before meeting up with some fantastic company (thanks Owen and Kat!)

Graffiti on the wall of Jo's...my favorite, it's kind of famous!
Owen, Kat and I went to Hopdoddy for lunch. Great place, hip atmosphere. They use local ingredients, local meats...very delicious and very Austin! Based on the recommendation of Owen and Kat I was adventurous and went for the special "The Chupacabra" a goat burger (their friend is a goat farmer and he sells to this restaurant). And despite my hesitation it was amazing! I'm a huge fan now!

I love all bacon, but happy bacon sounds lovely too!

All in all it was a great day trip! Looking forward to many more!
