Trail of Lights

Sunday was the last night for the Trail of Lights in Zilker Park. Seeing as how neither Josh or I have been, we decided to see what it was all about before we move away from Austin. Here’s a couple of pics I snapped..

Christmas Party

Thursday night was my last Apogee Christmas Party. It was fantastic. I think everyone had a great time. It was 80s-themed, and there were video games! But the best part was just getting to hang out with all the fantastic people that soon I will no longer work with. And the drinks! All the pics can be found in this flickr set. I will miss this.

Five Things I Will Miss About Austin

Five Things I Will Miss About Austin

  1. Alamo Drafthouse – movie and awesome food!!! What’s not to like? Yesterday I had an excellent pizza and Creme Brulee while watching the Golden Compass. Other cities (Seattle) really need to pick up this awesome idea.
  2. Sixth Street, 4th Street, Red River… – These areas are great. Downtown is the place to be on weekend nights, because you have the craziness of 6th street, the more laid-back 4th street, and for music.. Red River!
  3. Central Market, Whole Foods Flagship Stores – Even if I don’t buy anything (but I almost always do), I love walking around and looking at all the cheeses.. and produce.. and desserts…… and samples! These stores are just so great. And yes, I know they have Whole Foods in Seattle, but not the FLAGSHIP awesome store.
  4. The Hike and Bike Trail – I only went running on this once while I lived in Austin. But I did walk on it plenty, and I just love the feel it gives the area. Health-conscious, pretty, etc..
  5. KUT – 90.5! NPR, public radio.. I love this station (minus John Aielli).

Pike Place Market

I got a chance to walk through Pike Place Market in Seattle. Here’s a few pics!

Seattle Public Library

One of the places I knew I wanted to go when I was in Seattle was to the library downtown. Here are pics..

Rainy City

Well… I’m moving. To Seattle. I went on an interview last week and I got the job! So after talking and discussion with the boyfriend.. I decided to take it. So we’re moving! I start my new job on January 7th. Not too much time, and there’s tons to do between now and then.. like packing. And Christmas. And New Year’s.

But I’m excited. It will be weird living in a state other than Texas. I’ll definitely have to get used to the rain and colder weather. It will be fun though.

I of course took pictures when I was there visiting briefly last week.

Here’s the first installment.. they have these Nutcracker Statues all over the downtown-ish area. Here are all the ones I found even though there are tons more that I didn’t run across:

a Cold Wednesday

Before we got a Christmas tree, I wondered whether it was worth it. Getting the tree, getting it home, making sure it stayed watered, buying all the stuff that goes along with it.. tree skirt, ornaments, lights..

But.. now that we have had the tree for a few weeks I am very very happy we got it. Josh and I get home from work and turn on the tree lights, and we can smell the Christmas smell and it’s just wonderful. Even though Christmas feels like it is rushing here at 2,427 kph, and it feels like I have so much to do, when I am around the tree, I can just relax and appreciate it.

I know I haven’t posted any new pics in over a week, but I promise there will be a new post and pics tomorrow! Good ones!
