Second last day of holiday and time for an explore on South Congress.

The only problem with chronicling everything you wear is that you realise patterns like for the three Thursdays I have been in Austin, I have worn this stripy t-shirt. Now everyone knows how much I love a stripy t-shirt but it must really be time to get back to Brisbane, out if my suitcase and into some winter clothes! Although I would like to thank Target for their fabulous stripy t-shirt sale at the end if last year – what would I have done without it?
I think I forget how gorgeous and casual things are in Austin and I don’t think I do casual very well. I have a tendency towards extreme casual at the weekend/on holiday and just go the shorts and t-shirt route every time. I packed flowing tops to wear over little shorty shorts and probably just forgot that I would be spending most of my time at music class, swim school and sitting on the floor having fabulous tea parties with a bear, a dog and a scrumptious 1 year old!
It’s been a fabulous holiday and I’m not wishing away my last few precious days but really just apologising for the monotony of the Thursday Stripy T-Shirt while I was trapped in the prison of my own dodgy packing! OK off to swim class.
Austin is the capital of Texas and the capitol building here in Texas is bigger than the one Washington! It’s true what they say about Texas – everything is bigger.
Today we started at the Blanton Museum of Art on campus at UT and then walked all the way down Congress till we hit 2nd Street District famous for yummy places to eat and we had a fantastic pizza and salad.
I’m back in my Dogstar pants ’cause everything else long is in the wash and it’s kinda freezing with air-con in lots of places. This is an Esprit tank that Mum bought me in Manilla a couple of years ago and I love the colour especially on a day like today.
I hope everyone is having a blue sky day.
