ok, i will be the first to admit, i take crappy pictures. when i do take them.
so what i am saying is…
i have no record of my FABULOUS trip.
i am a terrible blogger!
but i did have an amazing time!! again. and we are already planning to go back next year!!
1- the FOOD!!!
ate at Royer’s…
LOVED EVERY BITE.
seriously. fried chicken, PIE, potato salad,PIE, buns and raspberry lemonade. and PIE.
to die for.
the hype is because it is fabulous. i am SOOO booking a table for supper next year!
(and uh, Tara, can i get the recipe for the potato salad!? i wanna be the coolest farmer’s wife out there and WOW them at brandings this year!!!)
2- the shopping.
spent some time shopping in Austin AND of course, down at the Round Top Antique grounds…
brought some fab stuff back!! but NO boots.
craziness i know! i just didn’t find any that blew my hair back. the girls i brought with me did though…a pair or two each!
the pastures were full of amazing, fabulous and heartbreaking stuff. heartbreaking in that NEXT TIME i am driving a semi trailer down. i have to. i might not live through another trip where i have to walk away from the furniture of my dreams…
3- the people!!
i didn’t get to see/meet half the people i was hoping too…darn cell phone service!
i am still sad. (ms. CHEEKS…wah!)
next year?! we will have to make more concrete plans!! (maybe Royer’s for dinner!?)
i did get to meet some locals (and yes, HI JOLIE!!), but most of them, once they found out we were from Canada, blamed us for bringing the cold weather!! lol. i denied it, but i will admit, it was easier to tour the grounds wearing every sweater i brought vs. sweating my brains out like last year…the friday and saturday however, the weather was GORGEOUS!!!
and there is a TON more to blab about, but i’ll save that for another day!!
did you go?! what was your top three?!
