Wow! I'm finally back from my travels to Florida (watching FL beat TN - sorry hubs) and Austin. They were both such fun trips. I'm also not sure where to start to share all the fun things we did and visited so I think I'm just going to do mostly pics. 
I only have a few pics of Florida but let me just say that it was so much fun being home and with the entire family. We went to the Gator v TN game (our household rival games) and of course the Gators won.
This pic was before the game - confidence!! 
We got Krispy Kreme doughnuts after like we have since I was about 4 years old.  (the sign proves how old it is)

Come Monday, mom and I ventured over to Austin for some jewelry buying. And boy did I find some beauties! I've already made a few pieces which will be coming on the website soon!

We had some awesome recommendations on places to eat during our visit and Ranch 616 did not disappoint! If you're in Austin or visiting, you should go to Ranch 616 and if possible sit outside next to cactus.


We ventured on South Congress Ave and did some vintage shopping (mom bought me a vintage leather skirt) as well another great meal. 
Some more vintage shopping at Uncommon Objects. Again, highly suggest this shop! Also, as you're shopping down S Congress you can pick up a vintage store map which will help get you to all the good stops! Leave enough time because there are a lot of them.

One store we couldn't pass up was the old soda fountain - I could have stayed here for hours but mom and I both forced ourselves to leave

We had lunch here and it was great as it was recommended! 

We ate at Z Tejas for dinner and sat outside on the top balcony. It was just perfect! It was a great girls trip with some successful jewelry buying! Looking forward to another trip next year...
