Short Road Trip to Austin

Let's go on a short #roadtrip!  See ya later #houston.
Back in March I bought tickets to see Mumford & Sons in Austin. They were also coming to Houston, but we've been meaning to do a small vacation so we took this opportunity to book the Austin concert instead. My husband and I have really only done one other trip together and that was Vegas in '12 when we got married. This was definitely going to be a fun trip for us! Since it was a Sunday show, we were forced to request Monday off. Such a sacrifice LOL!

Before I continue with the pictures I just want to say that this concert was ridiculously good. You know how you fall in love with a band and wonder if their live show sounds just as good as the album?! Yeah this show definitely exceeded our expectations. We've been fans of Mumford & Sons since the first single on their first album came out. I've never considered myself to be a fan of folk music but dammit when you sound like these guys, how could you not like folk music?! Technically called folk rock music. These dudes definitely know how to give a crowd a great show. 

I posted the following pictures on Instagram - If you're not following me already, whatcha waiting for?!

We had a great time, obviously. We ate tasty food and drank some awesome goodies. Hung out with our friend Jessica before the concert who told us that the venue where our concert was happening, Austin360 Amphittheater had opened in April. I am so glad we decided to see this concert at this venue and not in the Woodlands. The venue had the music sounding soooo good. We did some more grubbing on Monday and some thrifting! GASP! My husband's exact words when we pulled into a thrift store was 'You're lucky I love you cause otherwise this would not be happening!' He's got jokes LOL! He totally came up with some awesome shirts while all I found was a purse. Grrrr! I'll save that for another day. Overall we had a fantastic time. The hotel we stayed at was the Holiday Inn on 35 with that lake view above. It was a fantastical stay with great customer service.

We found out today that one of the band members of Mumford & Sons, Ted the bass player hasn't been  feeling good the last couple of days. Come to find out he has a blood clot in his brain :( Shows for Dallas, Woodlands, & New Orleans have been postponed for a later time. Glad we were able to see them in Austin but sad for what's to come for Ted. We hope your operation goes well and that your recovery is fast and smooth!!

If you haven't already visited Austin, I recommend you do. There's so much to do and if you're not interested in visiting the Live Music Capital of the World then I don't think we can still be friends Lol!

..till next time ;]
