1 -- Started off the first week of December with ... traffic. >.< But, whatevs, still nowhere near as bad as Houston's traffic! I'll take it!

2 -- One of my fave photog friends, Mr. MelMel, came to town for a weekend visit. Always a crazy fun time catching up on Rainey St. when he's around! Dance battles and food truck mis-adventures and funny gun talk and tons of giggles. Gots a few priceless video footage for evidencia. ;-)

And I finally got to meet one of his older sisters after all these years! He only talks about how awesome and close they all are, like, all the time!

4 -- Another week full of foodie adventures. A little bit of wine + hummus at Opa, a little bit of Sunday brunch (and may I add, one of the bestest brunch spots in Austin!) at Moonshine, a little bit of Korean goodness at Rockin Rice, a little bit of Asian-fusion at East Side King.

5 -- Speaking of foodie adventures, we also popped on over to one of my fave gourmet ice cream spots in Austin. Lick on South Lamar. Twice. =X The second time around I tried the Savory Pecan & Bourbon, as well as the Peppermint Bark, and oh em gee this stuff is deeevine! IloveyouLick!

6 -- But the ice cream adventures didn't stop there. Oliver was craving HEB's Pumpkin Ice Cream like he was preggers and a zombie apocalypse was going down the next day. Whatever the urgent reason may be, we had to get our hands on it right away. So we traveled to 4 HEBs in one night just to find this sucker. All sold out. Oliver eventually caved and settled for Blue Bell's Spiced Pumpkin Pecan, which turned out to be quite tasty!
