Oh Austin, how I love thee

We had a fabulous time in Austin! We spent the weekend at the Barton Creek Resort up in the hills. It was incredible! I didn't want to leave :( When we first checked in we walked up to our room and it was perfect! A coworker of mine has a side travel-agent biz, so he scored us a few upgrades for free!! Our room had a freaking fireplace in it?? Oh and after we had settled in, we heard a knock on the door. We figured it was our luggage, but no, it was a nice man bringing us up some wine. I was officially in love from that moment on. Wine is most certainly the way to my heart! Friday night agenda: Mexican food, plenty of margaritas and queso! Oh it was lovely!

after too many margs...

We did a little hiking/walking around the grounds on Saturday - Beau's birthday! The weather was no bueno, but we made the best of it! I didn't realize we were going to be encountering so many slippery rocks on our adventure. I nearly ate it about 300 times. Beau had to walk in front of me and ease me down several times. I also wasn't wearing the most appropriate walking shoes for the day. We spent the rest of the afternoon hopping from the hot tub to the bar. We polished off a few brewski's and played some shuffle board. Touchy subject - I was up on the best out of 5 game but mr. cocky couldn't handle his woman beating him so we had to play 7 games and I lost it. I think the Aqua Tea had something to do with it. I also found out that some liquors make me angry. Not a side I'm wanting to showcase in the future.....

Beau's birthday dinner!

Sunday was our anniversary and it was a beautiful day! We went and had a delicious Easter breakfast and then had an incredible couples massage. Aaah it was so relaxing! We spent the rest of the afternoon laying out by the pool. Not a cloud in the sky! Of course my little Irish man got scorched. He likes to say that he's "golden" even though he looks like a lobster. We went back up to the room and opened presents...well I did. I had ordered something for Beau and it didn't come in on time :( I opened my sweet card and then my gift and it was a new Bible with my new last name on it! Such a sweet gift. I'll love it forever! We ended our anniversary with a dinner at Ruth's Chris. Best steak I've ever eaten, hands down!

Going out to RC's

All in all it was a perfect weekend! We had a blast and I think we might make this little spot "our spot" for quick getaways. I LOVE Austin! And I never thought Beau would be too thrilled with it since he's an Aggie and all, but he loved it too!! OH and guess what, his company just so happens to have an office there..what what - imjustsayin ;)

Sorry for the picture overload! I took about 600 the entire weekend, so this is just a mere glimpse of what I had taken. I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!! Thank you all for the sweet comments on my last posts! Beau loved all the birthday wishes :)
