When I’m on tour, I take the few days I have off very seriously! I like to eat, drink and do as many things as the city we’re visiting has to offer. Last week in Austin, I definitely did just that.
I started my morning at Hillside Farmacy, a quirky restaurant that supports local farmers for their farm-to-table feasts. The space used to be a pharmacy in the 1950s, hence the name. They cleverly use vintage prescription bottles as salt and pepper shakers! The original rich wood cabinets, artsy murals, tile work and crystal doorknobs create an authentically-worn-in warmth. My fried egg sandwich (avocado, aioli, sprouts, fried green tomato) was off-the-charts delicious!

After a yummy breakfast, I hopped over to one of my favorite shops, Uncommon Objects, an antique and vintage shop. I went treasure hunting there last year and couldn’t wait to return. One could seriously ooh and ahh all over that store for hours — trust me, I have!

Lexi and Harley of course had to take advantage of Austin as well, so I took them to Barton Springs for some fun in the Texas sun. The girls and I enjoyed relaxing by the pools, which were packed with people having a good time. It was so beautiful, and the laid back vibes of everyone around us were infectious!
To finish off my day, I decided to get my late-night swing on at Top Golf. It was such a blast! I love a good competition, and Top Golf had everything I could possibly want for a memorable evening off.
It was an amazing adventure and I can’t wait to come back to see you, Austin! I would love to know what I need to add to my list for next time if you have some suggestions. Let me know in the comments!
