Right now, I'm enjoying a week off for Spring Break at the college where I teach. I had planned on spending a quiet week at home, getting caught up on various things as well as enjoying some down-time. On Saturday, my husband found out that he was able to take a few days off of work as well, and managed to score some inexpensive plane tickets to Austin, TX, so we are completely changing plans and taking a mini-vacation. This is quite unusual for me, since I am a "planner" not a "let's wing it" kind of person! Since he used to live in Austin, I am letting him make all the arrangements, most of which revolve around live music and barbecue! He's excited about showing off all his former stomping grounds, and I'm looking forward to this impromptu getaway. I've only been to Austin twice before, once 20 years ago (egad!) when I was in college to visit a friend, and six years ago with my husband to attend his friend's wedding. For this visit, I hope to have a a bit more time to explore this city. If any of you out there are from the area, let me know what the "must-do" activities are!
Fortunately, I figured out how to post to my blog using my iPhone, so I hope to still participate (somewhat!) in Shimelle's Blogging for Scrapbookers class from the road. Expect lots of barbecue pictures in the days to come!
