Today was a FULL day, full of fun, friends and fancy shopping. It started up heading to Austin and lunching at Searsucker. Lunch was light and refreshing and the atmosphere was neat.
I had the quinoa salad with shrimp, it was a nice change from all the meat and cheese...you know the low carb thing.
After lunch we headed to the Governors Mansion for our tour and to meet my instagram friend who works for the state, Cammy.
Inside the gates, past security and headed inside.
They have kept the Texas Governor's Mansion as true to form as they can.Original furniture, incredible paintings and the chandeliers were spectacular.
There are several mirrors in the Mansion I wouldn't mind hanging in our home.
There were two, and beautiful does not do them justice.
I loved the yellow and green combo in the parlor.
Formal dinning room is a pretty blue and the table could not have shined brighter.
One of the rugs.
My newest obsession! Not sure what the original use was, or what it's called. But I will find out and one day I will have one! It's an insulated container (with lid). Apparently they have used it for ice cream in the past. If you know, help a girl out. Please!!!!!
I'm a native Texas, have been to the Capitol many times and but this was my first time to the Governor's Mansion and I can not thank Cammy enough for inviting me.
After the tour, I couldn't head straight home and Pookie was up for a little stop at the Lilly Pulitzer store. She found a cute pair of shorts and we meet another instagram follower and now friend (@preppositional_phase).
Couldn't make a stop at The Domain in Austin and not go to Neiman Marcus. I wanted to grab a bottle of perfume (check) and take a stroll through MacKenzie-Childs.
Possibly make a stroll through handbags to drool. Valentino is killing me!!!! I love this pink tote.
Hey, MacKenzie-Childs you don't know me, but don't let that stop you from sending this ottoman my way. I love everything about MC, it's cheery, colorful and mixes great with almost anything. I may have a picked up a bowl. It's a collection and an addiction.
Finished up in Austin and we had to haul back for a friend's daughter (Congrats Elle) who was graduating from Kindergarten. She's adorable, and exhausted or not I wasn't missing it. The evening was relaxing and James Coney Island catered so it was YUMMMMMMMMMyyyyyyy.
Isn't that Mexican pot AMAZING!!!! It's in said friends kitchen and it's big, wonderful and looks fabulous.
What's a celebration without a little horse races, especially when you have a house full of horse enthusiast. Those mechanical horses are something!!!
The day was definitely crammed packed. Started on a high note and ended on one to. I really wanted to lay down on the hammock next to Little Einstein but thought I'd not be able to get back up.
Hard to believe it's only Friday. Tomorrow is baseball, Houston Rockets and Event in Houston.
Have a great weekend.
Love and Limes,
