Hot Springs is happening this week! This is actually one of my favorite places we've been in our travels.

#hotsprings   #arkansas   #hotspringsar   #nationalpark   #rvlife  
Hot Springs, AR is a delightful town southwest of Little Rock with a colorful history. You can still enjoy the hot springs today on Bathhouse Row.

For those without a  #SXSW  badge or wristband, you can still enjoy the festival! Love this list of ideas.

My favorite cocktail in Austin! Broken Down Tibetan Mule at Somersault. Grey Goose Le Citron, King's Ginger, Fig Jam and lime juice with ginger-lemon foam on top.

The fruit gel cubes with cricket flour weren't bad. Could have used a bit more fruit flavor (kind of bland) but, otherwise good.

Capturing and preserving stories is of amazing value to our country. Those with money and fame often have their stories told, but +StoryCorps is listening to regular people. We all have a story to tell.

Freedmen's is possibly the best underrated BBQ in Austin. Beautiful historic building, outdoor seating, craft cocktails and THE HOLY TRINITY PLATE.

I've been working with Sumi for the past two tax seasons (FY 2012 and 2013) and am privileged to have her as my CPA. She does my husband and my personal taxes every year, as well as the forms needed for our two LLCs. She is incredibly responsive and goes out of her way to help. Because of her strong (but beautiful!) accent, I find it easiest to communicate with her in person. But she always makes herself available to meet with me, talk on the phone, or email. I highly recommend her services.

Taqueria La Playa is a hidden gem. It doesn't get any critical acclaim that I've ever seen, but it is irreplaceable for those who appreciate authentic Mexican food. My husband spent his childhood in Mexico, and searched for YEARS for authentic limonada. He never found it until La Playa. The look on his face when he takes his first sip is priceless. It's like he's a little kid again. For my part, I love the horchata - the best I've found in Austin so far. We've tried the tacos and I enjoy the enchiladas verdes. It's good. The people are friendly. It is what it is and we love it.

Love the HOPE Farmers Market. Strong community feeling, with quality vendors. Each vendor is giving back to the community in some way, which makes you want to support them even more. Coolhaus, Kuna Kicks, Nile Valley tea...just some of the things I love about HOPE.

This cheesecake is mind-blowingly good. Michael is an amazing cook and the sweetest person. He's always coming up with creative cheesecake recipes, including perfect seasonal choices. Cannot recommend CinnaMan highly enough.

Kong Screenprinting rocks the house. The team is full of talent (decades worth), their work is solid and creative, and if you're not careful...they may just become your friends. Definitely recommend as your go-to screenprinters. They specialize in fabric printing.

Visited East Side Showroom on a busy weekend night. The wait for a table was extremely long, but we whiled the time away standing at the bar. It was worth the wait. We were right up front when the music started, and the band was excellent. Service definitely skirts on snobby, but the drinks are done up right.
