The entrance to the Art City Austin festival.

Austinite wearing a sombrero and riding a unicycle!)

of Austin's famous South Congress Street!
We also tried an awesome, new restaurant called Eastside Cafe. Get a load of our romantic, date night cuisine:
Panko & Pecan Encrusted Chicken with Jalapeno Cream Gravy,
Mashed Potatoes & Field Greens
Four Jumbo Fried Shrimp
with Crispy Fries and Apple Pecan Slaw
Miso Ginger Acorn Squash
And this is how Markley spent her weekend while her parents were out exploring...
Watching television... in the coffee table...
Snuggling with her favorite toy!
Ps. Today marks Day #16 in my 30 Day Challenge - more than half way there! I'll admit, I've failed on the "blog every day" goal, but I've succeeded on the much more personal and important goals of taking time for myself and reflecting on what I really want and need out of this next chapter in my life. I think giving myself a moment to breathe without the pressure to hurry up and decide has been the greatest gift of all. It's also given me the extra patience I need as we are now on Day #2 of Markley's biggest challenge yet... crate training!
