Independence Day = Hope
This weekend we attended our very first ACL Festival. After over ten years of living in Austin, we finally went – but only because a friend gave us free VIP passes for the Friday shows. :) We had a great time wandering around, hanging out in the VIP Grove, snacking on foodstuffs, and listening to awesome music. It’s hard to decide on my favorite – Vampire Weekend was incredible live, but my favorite memory was at the end of the evening, when we decided to head home, and were caught up by an amazing show by Kaskade, along with a rainstorm that left all of us dancing, drenched, and happy. It was something I’ll never forget.
We also got to see The Book of Mormon at Bass Concert Hall, which was hilariously irreverent, with amazing performances and themes that were thought-provoking. Overall, it was a fantastic weekend.
In other news, I watched Tucker and Dale vs. Evil, which I had been meaning to watch since the Austin Film Festival back in 2010, and only got to tonight. It’s hilarious, and it’s a lovely ode the the horror cabin-in-the-woods genre. Definitely worth watching (especially if you’re a huge fan of Alan Tudyk.)
Here in Austin we’ve had lots of rain, and cloudy days, and a bit of fall-like weather, though we’re still a ways out from boots-and-sweater time. At least I can wear jeans without sweltering.
Oh! And I’ve fallen in love with Trader Joe’s, as probably everyone assumed I would do. It’s like a Whole Foods or a Central Market, but less expensive, and with more awesome convenience ingredients. I can buy pre-chopped organic Tuscan kale, peeled and diced fresh butternut squash, autumn-spice tea and speculoos cookies, miso-ginger broth and inexpensive organic, cage-free eggs. AND they have cheap bubbles, which we have renamed chubbles. And best of all, it’s just a few minutes from our house, so I can hop on over any time.

I hope you all have a fabulous Columbus Week! ;) ♥
