Austin Part 2

Just some more pictures of my trip to Austin. On Friday, Jen's maid of honor had us all over for a bridal brunch complete with pigs in a blanket and mimosas. After the night before, it was nice to have a little hair of the dog ;) I mostly stuck to good 'ol H2O. After that, we all went to get our nails done. Then, we ran a bunch of errands and they went off to the rehearsal and I napped :) The rehearsal dinner was at this nice place called The Iron Cactus and their margaritas were soo tasty.

The next day, the bridal party was off to get their hair done. I wanted to explore Austin a bit so they dropped me off on the edge of South Congress and I got to exploring! This area of town is probably touristy but I thought all of the buildings were so COOL looking. I tried to convey it in my pictures so maybe you can see what I mean.
