Hey, friends!! Happy Labor Day- I hope you’re having a great one 🙂
Welcome to Part 2 of the weekend with my sister, Andi! Leaving off from Part 1, after we went to reflexology, we were driving back and noticed a Half Price Books in a strip mall. It’s hard for either of us to turn down a bookstore, so we zipped in and then perused the aisles for a while.
After, we both noted we had a sweet tooth acting up. So we drove to South Congress to get some sweet treats from the retro candy store, Big Top.
Andi took this pic below- I think it’s just so beautiful.
The bats were in hiding again that night, sadly. It also started raining and our stomachs were grumbling, so it was an easy decision to give up the waiting and head to dinner instead.
For dinner, we were both craving Asian Cuisine and stumbled upon Lin Restaurant on 6th street.
Now for an item that will go on a “Must Try Foods in Austin” list (when I make that one day)- this mushroom bao. I dream of this appetizer, and I actually could have easily ate this as my main course.
We also shared some yummy bok choy with mushrooms to get our greens in.
After such a jam-packed day we were exhausted and ready to hit the hay!
In the morning, we went to Picnik before church.
We also shared a delicious lox toast to give us a protein boost for the day.
After church at Austin Stone, we drove around downtown Austin for a bit enjoying the murals, then it was time to drop off my sis at the airport. And if you’re wondering- I was surprisingly able to find the South Terminal this time without getting lost! We did leave extra early just to make sure to allow enough time to get lost if needed though 🙂
I returned home to the sweetest card ever from my sis that I’ll treasure forever!! She also left me this most amazing, luxurious goat’s milk soap.
It was a weekend for the books with lots of inside jokes, a list of things/food we classify as “life changing” & the best memories <3 Can’t wait for our next sister weekend in Colorado- hopefully Halston can make that one too 🙂 ! <3 Thanks for visiting me, Sis!!! <3
