AOK Guide to Austin

Monday, August 14, 2017

I'm so excited to share another post from the AOK Travel Guide series! This time, we're heading to Austin, Texas. ATX is another place I could return to time and time again - C and I have been three times together in the last few years and have always had a blast! So much so that we are heading back again in November for a couple's weekend with friends. You can read about our last trip here and here. Let me just tell ya.....there is a reason Austin is the food capital of the Lone Star State....I hope you're hungry! 

A.OK Braid Tutorial

Good morning and Happy Friday, ahhh!!! I've gotten a lot of comments on my braids recently so I thought I'd share a little tutorial on fishtail braids and inside-out french braids. It is seriously so easy once you figure out what to do. It takes me no time at all and is perfect for days when I don't wash my hair. It can completely change your look, giving it just the right amount of quirkiness, coziness, or class, depending on how you style it!

Eat. Lift. Rescue.

There are no words to describe just how much I love dogs. I've been trying to type it out and explain it, but I can't express it enough. Dogs are just my "thing," they are what makes my heart whole and  my mind happy. And I'm a-ok with being a crazy dog lady.

The Solution for My Not-So-Green Thumb

I like to think that I am pretty dang good at interior decorating.... I designed an entire home renovation single handedly, after all. But when it comes to landscaping, I am at a loss. I knew I wanted some sort of something on either side of my front door, but I didn't know what.

Ever since we moved in to the White House on the Prairie, I've tried to put live plants on the front porch. I don't exactly have a green thumb.....so it has been a bit of a struggle, to say the least. The rosemary plants froze, the flowers died (probably from lack of water, oops!), the ferns got too much sun, and the little evergreen trees I bought on clearance needed about 15 feet more space to grow. I had just about given up when I got these mini cedar trees from Plantscape Inc.

I love it when people ask for book recommendations on Facebook or when my favorite bloggers do book reviews! I always look up the books on Amazon or download the sample in iBooks, read a few pages, and add the ones I like to my reading list. I put "read more for fun" on my 30 Before 30 list and have been thoroughly enjoying it. I planned on reading a book a month in 2017, but I'm already a few ahead of schedule!

There's nothing quite like getting a package in the mail. Am I right or am I right? The mail fairy blesses me quite often thanks to my online shopping addiction, but its the surprise packages that are the most fun - those you forgot you ordered or the monthly subscriptions that arrive unannounced.
