Doin' it my way.

While mom and dad were here we went to an awesome Japanese restaurant called Mikado for lunch. Everyone was really impressed!
Showing off our new ferns.
Because the weather’s nice almost the whole year round (except today, when it’s 30 degrees in the middle of an Arctic cold front), you can go garage-saling all the time. This was our route one Saturday morning. And yes, I’m a little OCD.
By far, best and most affordable awesome food in Austin is the food carts. This year, they had the 1st ever Gypsy Picnic Food Cart Festival. It was phenomenal! We got there early at 11:30 or so, and boy were we glad–by 2pm, it was pretty warm, there were thousands of people (they weren’t expecting a huge turnout due to it being its first year), and vendors were starting to sell out.
Everyone lining up for the goodies.
Kimchee fries from ChiLantro, kind of like poutine.
Ev chowing down on a bulgogi taco.
Empanadas were a little dry. But interesting flavor combinations.
Starting to get full…
And even fuller. Lines were 45 mins long!
That was Nov. 6. A couple weeks later we all piled in the car and drove up to Kansas for Thanksgiving. This is on our way up–we had to stop at Braum’s and get biscuits and gravy. Well, I had to… Evan had yogurt and fruit.
Not the pretty Austin weather up in Russell. We went pheasant hunting, but I don’t think we got much this year. I always get the most shots… with my camera!!!
