ATX Good Life

All my adventures around the capital city of Texas ❤︎

♥This Weekend

Weekend of August 23- The Good Stuff! This weekend I found a new snack that absolutely blew my mind. I saw them in Central Market, and I figured they were going to be typical sour green grapes with a slight cotton candy sweetness. But NO! These grapes taste exactly like […]

Birthday Party

I had an amazing 23rd birthday. First, it was the night of cake and dinner at home (plus Harry Potter movies) with Tom and Scott. Then it was a dinner out to Clay Pit in downtown Austin, and a party at the house. On Saturday, I celebrated my birthday with […]

Frigid Frog Shaved Ice

Today we checked out yet another spot in Austin that I had never been to before. We drive up and down South Lamar enough, so I figured it was only a matter of time before we pulled over and tried the Frigid Frog Shaved Ice truck that always caught my […]

3 Year Anniversary

Scott and I celebrated our three year anniversary yesterday. We had an amazing day in Austin. I cooked for my client Rose, and hung out with her nephew, watching The Office and baking cookies. It’s always wonderful to see them- and since our collective group of 4 ranges in age […]

Tex Mex!

I tend to eat at the same restaurant over and over. Every time Scott and I rack our brains, thinking of where we want to eat, we always come to the one place we always go to. I’m talking about going there so often we become friends with the waitstaff […]

4th of July!

I love the 4th of July. I grew up in a really idyllic town in New Jersey where everyone goes crazy for Independence Day. What up Ridgewood! We would go to the parade, then a pool party, then another party, then our friends’ house for the fireworks at night. It […]

X-Games Austin Rally

Tonight was the very wild Keep X-Games Weird rally in downtown Austin. I had completely forgotten about this event and was planning on going for my run when Scott called. He told me that he was riding in the event, and I should come down. It was like 6 PM, […]

So much has been happening!

Summertime. It is my favorite time of year. I love the dry, sunshiney heat of Austin in the summer, and that I never have to flat-iron my hair and that school is out until August. (Although I have my impending senior sociology Capstone looming over my head- NOO!) Summer means […]

Summer Days

Today is the first really “Texas hot” day of summer, so I am camped out inside with my fan pointed at me. It is also a good day to relax, since yesterday was a big day. I had work, a dentist appointment (wisdom teeth drama), fought with my brother, hooked […]

A Few Weeks Away

Hello! I have SUCH blog guilt. I took a few weeks off from my two blogs while my semester wrapped at Southwestern. I finished up my three classes (and all their papers and finals), started a job, and moved out of my apartment and back home with my family. This […]
