Austin 2018

This week, I went to Austin, Texas with a friend from New York to visit two other dear friends that live there. We left on Monday post kids drop off and then returned back to NYC for pick up Wednesday. It was a quick trip but so good to get away and see friends I have not seen in a long time. We did nothing special or extraordinary other than spend quality time together with loads of nachos and tequila. I told them that all I really wanted to do was eat as many nachos as possible — and literally, that is what we did. We came home with both our bellies and hearts full. Worth the travel and logistical planning just to be with friends I don’t get to see enough of. Here are pictures of all the nachos I ate!


Margarita #1. We got off the plane and went straight to lunch….and margaritas.

On our way to dinner (that was not Tex-Mex), I said that I needed one nacho to eat — so we stopped by a drive through fast food place and got these delicious nachos. They were so good.

We ate them in the backseat of the car. And didn’t make a mess.

The next morning, we had a scheduled workout at 9:45, so we went and had some breakfast tacos.

And migas — which is basically tortilla strips with things on top — aka like a nacho but strips instead of chips.

Post workout, we ate queso and nachos.

And nachos. I dipped the nachos in to the queso.

After lunch, we went to different stores, and then went out to have margaritas and nachos. These were hands down my favorite of the trip.

And believe it or not, we had dinner too!

With more queso!!!

The four of us — dear friends. Thank you thank you thank you — love you so very much.


Not pictured, my belly aches the next day, and the workouts that we did……Thank you for a great mid-week trip — unbelievably special and hopefully an annual trip.
