The house cat
mimosas for breakfast
This past weekend, I co-hosted a bachelorette weekend getaway in Austin with the bride’s sister and matron of honor. We rented this amazing house in the SoCo district and spent the weekend lounging in the pool and taking our time to enjoy good food and company with each other. A couple of highlights included paddle boarding for the first time on the lake, experiencing 6th Street since my college days, brunch at Lucky Robot where the roasted brussel sprouts are very crunchy and yummy, and dining at Odd Duck, whose ceviche and fig trifle dishes were so savory and delicious.
We hand printed these gift bags for the guests and included a gift basket filled with our favorite beauty products, including these lip stains that are my new obsession of the moment, some Burt’s Bee’s essentials, and soap from Anthropologie. These floral arrangements were easy and fun to make using filler flowers and a few brightly colored roses. You can see more here.
I think I really needed this getaway to really relax and enjoy the last few moment s of summer. Two more weeks until the beginning of another school year and I know it’s going to go by very quickly.
