50 Things To Do in Greater Austin, TX #31 Discover ‘Recycled Art’ at Texas Design Company

The ‘store’ portion of Texas Design Co consists of three more rooms, one of which is air conditioned. That was my fave room! LOL One room contains Tina’s cute jewelry line and lots of cheeky signs and fun decor you might want for the bar area or family room. They’ve re-used items in genius ways you’d never dream of! My personal favorites were the animal sculptures I saw everywhere. You can bring them a pic of your pet and they will adorably ‘recreate’ it out of…who knows what?! … More 50 Things To Do in Greater Austin, TX #31 Discover ‘Recycled Art’ at Texas Design Company

50 Things To Do in Greater Austin, TX #30 Go Tubing!

Recently some pals and I went tubing on the San Marcos River and it was Heaven! Before we went, I was thinking back to the last time I had been tubing. That was like 20 years ago on the Salt River in Arizona. I had almost forgotten how relaxing it was…and most importantly, how much that cool, flowing river cools down your body temperature as soon as you get in! It’s Magical! … More 50 Things To Do in Greater Austin, TX #30 Go Tubing!

Yes, I’m totally serious! LOL I know it sounds a little weird but if you go to Kula Sushi, and you like to try new and unusual things, you’ll probably dig it.

Anna Kraft is not a model. But, when you meet her, you’ll swear she must be! She’s tall and beautiful and she looks amazing in front of the camera. But, once you spend a few minutes with her in her cozy photography studio above Quenan’s Jewelers at 700 S. Austin Ave in Georgetown, you quickly realize that her real passion lies not in being in front of the camera, but instead in working behind the camera to bring out the very best in her subjects. … More 50 Things To Do in Greater Austin, TX! #27 Make A Photo Memory

50 Things To Do in Greater Austin, TX! #23 Take A Hike

One thing I enjoy about living in Texas is that you can get outside and walk almost any time of the year. Not gonna lie-Texas Summer is Insanely Hot! To go for a walk or hike during the afternoon in Summer around here is basically like asking to be turned into a little pile of smoking ash…at least when you’re a German/Irish girl from Chicago. Hello! So, I just stick to long morning or evening walks with my dog at this time of year. With that said, the rest of the year is great for getting outdoors at any time of day! … More 50 Things To Do in Greater Austin, TX! #23 Take A Hike
