More Austin fun.

Sunday morning we had brunch at Frank in downtown Austin. Their specialty is all-things pork, especially bacon, and hot dogs.

They had a great selection of drinks featuring, you guessed it, bacon infused liquors.

As this was brunch, a bloody Mary seemed in order and Frank did not disappoint. Their bloody Mary is made with bacon-infused vodka, a full strip of bacon IN the drink, and a beer chaser. Delish!

Just the sort of thing you'd expect to do in Austin.

This weekend, N and I went to Austin to visit N's brother who just moved into a new house. Saturday night we went to the Austin Texas Roller Derby championship bout. It was our first roller derby and we both really enjoyed it.

The Hustlers upset the Hotrod Honeys for 1st place.

Busy bees

Last weekend N and I made an ottoman out of a salvaged piece of foam my mom gave us and some legs from the hardware store. Also made a couple throw pillows for the couch to match it. We, and the cats, are enjoying them.
