If you are looking for the perfect accessory for your back yard, I have two words for you:  FIRE PIT!!!  This year my husband got me a Fire Pit for Christmas.  It is one of the best gifts I have ever gotten.  I love it.  We have spent hours of endless fun seeing how big we can get the fire, roasting marshmallows, making s'mores, and just plain standing around it. This summer the goal is going to be to build a nice patio and the fire pit will be the centerpiece of it all!  Can't wait!!

We've lived in our house for about 3 years now. You would think in all that time, we would have thought to paint. But, no. Well, I take that back. We've thought about it. We just never acted on it. I really like color on the walls. It makes a house feel more like a home. So it happened. We finally started painting! We have a lot to go, but at least we have one room painted!

Torchy's Tacos

I haven't posted anything on this blog in a really long time. I had pretty much forgotten about it until my father asked me if I had posted anything on here lately. Looking back, I focused a lot of attention on the places I had gone to eat once I moved to Austin. I haven't stopped eating out, so I think I should resume writing about the spots where I eat! That's where Torchy's Tacos comes in.

Torchy's is THE BEST taqueria I have found in Austin. I am totally addicted to their food. Their chips and queso is like crack to me. I could probably eat it every day! They mix a little guacamole in there and I have no idea what else, but it is YUMMY!! I also LOVE their baja shrimp tacos. I haven't actually tried any of their other tacos, because once I found the baja shrimp tacos, I fell in love! My husband has pretty much tried all of their tacos and said he has yet to have one that isn't good.

There are several locations, but my favorite is on South 1st street. Be prepared to wait in line and have trouble finding a seat if you go there. I don't think I have been to any of their locations and slipped right in.
