MLK Weekend Recap

Hey friends! I hope you had a phenomenal long weekend! We sure did! Plenty of outdoor time, eating delicious food, and just plain relaxing. Taking Andrew to the airport was really hard. Over the last three months, I’ve become relatively used to leaving. Dropping someone off feels completely different. Today is really hard, so I would rather focus a little more on the incredible weekend we had together.


We started the weekend with a killer workout. I dragged him to his first Orangetheory fitness class. We had such a blast! I tried to take a sweaty selfie but he definitely wasn’t having any of that! 🙂


After class, we thought Juno deserved an outing too, so we brought her to St. Edwards Trail at Bull Creek. We took a walk, played in the water, and enjoyed the beautiful day. Less than a week, and she will be back to full activity (first time since early October!!!).


We also went to one of my favorite Austin restaurants for dinner and drinks with Juno. Part of why I love it so much is that they are SO dog friendly. In the winter, they put a tent up on the patio so you can still bring your pup.

We headed out for brunch and $1 mimosas. Yes. You read correctly $1 mimosas AND dog friendly. Talk about a win-win! The best part was when Juno broke a plate trying to spiderman her way up the wall to a bird….the whole place cheered! She was an angel after that little episode.

You may have seen this on my Instagram but it’s so good, it’s worth re-sharing!

The rest of the day was spent napping and relaxing (aka, doing absolutely nothing and loving every minute). However, we did pretend to be productive adults and cooked dinner with Blue Apron’s help before proceeding to camp out on the couch. It was definitely fun to cook together after eating out a fair bit.


Our last day was very laid back. We spent a good portion of the day outside, eating tacos (after lifting heavy of course), walking Juno, and hanging out downtown.

Mmmmm Taco Deli



We also hit up another Whole Foods in the area and sampled some local beer/wine before heading home to cook dinner and sleep early to ensure we made the early flight. Of course, we had plenty of cuddles while watching a movie. There were also a ton of Juno shenanigans that are all over my Instagram.


How was your weekend, friends?
