Lazy Sunday Love

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope every one had a great Saturday! I DID! I DID! Want the recap? Sure…why not! First, I met up with my mama and we got pedicures! Look at those CUTE feet: 

Pretty toes!!My mom is the one with the cute shoes! haha!


Then we picked up my step-dad, Jim, and headed downtown to the funky part of Austin: South Congress!! We went shopping and there were tons of outdoor vendors It is SXSW here in Austin this weekend and so it was crazy crowded(in a good way) and we saw some characters!  didn’t snap a picture but there was a woman in a black bathing suit walking around playing a flute! haha…don’t ask…that’s Austin for you! 🙂  It was a lot of fun! Then we went to Perla’s Seafood & Oyster Bar!


My mom and Jim!




Now to the FOOD! We started with “Mom and Daughter” glasses of Prosecco and Jim had Guiness! 

The Cocktails


Then of course we had to have some appetizers. All that shopping can makes some peeps hungry! We had a jumbo Shrimp Cocktail, Grilled Octopus and Tuna Tartare. I had bites of all! 🙂 

Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail


Grilled Octopus


Tuna Tartare...check out the quail egg on the side. (I did not try that...haha)


Then we had dinner! I had the Scallops with a side of Grilled Brussel Sprouts. It was so good but the brussel sprouts were easily the best part of the meal! 

Scallops...yum yum yum!


The star of the night!


Overall it was a GREAT Saturday! And then today is LAZY SUNDAY! Woot Woot! I slept in and am currently doing my most favorite Sunday morning tradition: drinking java and working the NY Times Crossword! One of these days I am going to finish the entire thing…in pen! 🙂 Not much else planned for today…just chilling and resting my legs! I hope everyone has an awesome Sunday too! Cheers! 🙂

  11. Your dinner looks sooo yummy. It is definitely making me hungry and want that tuna tartare!

    Also, you are definitely making me want to visit Austin! I’ve always heard that it’s a really cool place!

  12. Oh my gosh…you and your mom are TWINS! Too funny! Help me out with brussel sprouts. I love almost all veggies, but found those to be repulsive. I want to like them!! What’s the best way to cook them?

    • SO GOOD!! You gotta roast them. Toss them with olive oil, kosher salt and pepper and put them on a baking sheet at about 400 degrees until they are crispy…35 to 40 minutes! You will love love love it! 🙂

      • I started poking around on your page, Kelly, because I am friends with Linds and follow her… brussels sprouts are DELISH, esp if you like broccoli.

        I buy frozen ones a lot and I eat them plain, but I also make fresh sprouts. I cut them in half, cut up some garlic and saute it with some EVOO, and throw in the sprouts with some (fresh) lemon juice… add s+p, etc. to your liking… they came out well! Play around with them until you can flavor them well enough to forget they are sprouts!!!
