Best Week Ever Part 2: Best Friends Reunited

Fresh off of my surprise trip home last week, I was excited to have a visitor in Austin. My best friend from college, Sophie, came down to visit for a long weekend.

We hadn’t seen each other in a little over a year, so it was so great to get together again. In just about 4 days, we did and saw SO much. I think she got a great representation of Austin! 🙂

Some highlights of the weekend:

  • Burgers @ Hopdoddy — we both opted for vegetarian burgers and raved about how good they were. I chose the ‘Janis Joplin’ special which included a hemp patty, avocado, sunflower sprouts and cheddar.


  • Post-hike happy hour @ La Condesa


  • BBQ @ Salt Lick — I love bringing out-of-towners here because of the great vibes. Pack a cooler, bring a deck of cards, and wait it out in the sunshine.


  • Hanging out @ Jester King Brewery

  • Nitrogenated Cold Brew @ Cuvee Coffee


  • Walking around Zilker Park, McKinney Falls, South Congress, the Farmer’s Market, and the Capitol.


  • Lunch on the Whole Foods Roof (… obligatory.)


  • Staying in and just talking, sitting on the porch, watching movies, and listening to 70s music — it was kind of great to just relax & hang out. It’s been too long!

All in all, I’m just so thankful I was able to see my friends and family all within the span of a week.

Between going home and having Sophie come visit, it was an unbelievably amazing week. I’ll never forget how happy it made me!
