Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend and for my Austin friends, hope you enjoyed the weekend FULL of thunderstorms and cool weather :-), I sure did!
My weekend was orginally going to be very laid back. I got a call on Friday asking if I could watch my precious little Bananalee (Annalee) while our besties Ashley and Justin had to work an early shift, so Friday night for me ended very early since I had to be somewhere at 630am. Scott had some guy friends over and had an NBA 2k12 battle while I enjoyed some DVR shows and snugglin' with Huxley til I dosed off.
Babysitting Bananalee is one of my favorite things to do. She is literally the most chill baby ever! I love her sweet little face...
While I was babysitting, I got a phone call from Scott around 2pm saying he had some fun news and to get home as soon as possible! Hmmm this should be interesting. The whole weekend, we had been planning that Scott was going to spend the night at his Dad's place and hangout - so I was already planning on having my Saturday night consist of fun trashy TV shows, Huxley cuddle time, etc.
So I hurried on home when Justin got off work and relieved me, and Scott had a beer in his hand an a smile on his face as he had a bag packed and told me we'd be having a fun little staycation in downtown Austin at the Doubletree Guest Suites! *WHAT!?* We never get to do fun stuff like this!! So I quickly showered and threw on something cute and we were out the door!
Neither of us have been to the doubletree downtown, and I have to say that I was thoroughly impressed! The rooms were HUGE and had a full kitchen, office, living room, AND TV in the bedroom - oh and the bed was huge too! I felt like a little kid I was so friggin excited.
|Happy girl right hurrr!|
After jumping on the bed and swooning over our awesome room, it was time for a cocktail so we headed down to the hotel bar for some vodka tonics and to figure out where we wanted to eat.
We got soo many suggestions and recommendations from friends that we ended up debating forever until we eventually just wanted somewhere on Dirty 6th that we could walk out and bar hop after, so we went to Iron Cactus.
Started the night off right...

We then made sure to make it to Suite 101 (a West 6th St. bar) to see one of my good girlfriends Cheyenne who was bartending... I miss her! It was fun. It was super dark so I didn't get any pics of us together, but this is the one shot I did get at the bar.
Haha, you cant really tell... but the girl behind the bar is our friend Chey, and that big shadow is a girl just dancing... I was completely amazed because she never took a break! We were there at least 20-30 minutes and not once did she stop booty-dancin. Lol!
It started raining and my great hair day turned sour with a big wavy mess. At first I pulled my hair back while we bar hopped more, but then we went into this bar that had Corn Hole AND Jenga outside - and while others were scared of the rain. I was at the point of intoxication where it was WAY too fun to play in the rain than stay dry and boring. So I challenged Scottie to a game of Corn Hole and I WON! What whaaaaaat!?
So we went to bed I'm sure around 330ish? We woke up and checked out around Noon hung over and draggin' our feet... and knew we were destined to carry on our tradition when we go DT and have the best "hungover" burger in town... at Hut's!
With full bellies and a headache, we left excited to go home and watch movies and lay around. I was soo excited to see my little munchkin and took him for a good walk and a dip in the pool! One of Huxley's favorite thigns to do is swim in the shallow area of a pool, and even MORE than that, towel off! He makes the funniest grunt noises toweling off and when I take the towel off him, he runs right back toward it for more... super cute... we call him Scuba Hux!
What did you do this weekend!?
