Trip to Texas & Home Again

We literally just walked in the door, unpacked our bags, and now I'm writing a quick blog to recap a few things and let you know what I'll be blogging about for the next few days or so.

I also have some serious catching up to do when it comes to reading all of your latest blog posts... got a bit behind while we were gone!

The Lone Star State

One thing that we learned while in Texas is that Austin real estate and rental prices are pretty similar to those in Denver. (aka too expensive for us). However, I am pretty convinced that we could get a little more house in Austin for our money than we could in the front range of Colorado. (Too bad we are nowhere near ready to buy a house). We found some really nice neighborhoods in Austin that we liked and could imagine living... if we had a couple million to spare. We might have expensive taste when it comes to choosing a place to live. That being said, it looks like we are never going to get out of debt and are never moving anywhere. Only kidding... or am I? If anything, we learned a little and had fun doing it.

What I'll be blogging about these next few days:

* our time spent in Texas
* being a tourist in Austin
* feeling at home in Gruene, Texas
* the live music scene

Hopefully you'll join me these next few days as I share our trip to Texas with you! (:


  1. I've only ever been to Dallas--but my experience in Texas was wonderful! So glad you had such a fun trip--and can't wait to see more from it! xoxo {av}

  2. You're very right on that, girl. You get more house for your money in Austin. I'm a little obsessed with the show House Hunters, so I know weird little facts like that!

    Can't wait to see more from your trip (:

  3. I just want to say I really enjoy reading your blog! I feel like I can really relate to your life! We are moving to Colorado soon, my husband is a pilot, he is also going back to school for his masters in architecture and has already earned his degree in art and worked as a photographer! Keep up the fun blog!

  4. I've never been to Texas but it's a place I would LOVE to visit. The farthest west I've every been is actually western PA. How lame is that? I need to spread my wings! But I can't wait to read about your trip!

  5. Whoop for TEXAS!! :) Aw you guys have to move here!!! And don't worry, Brandon and I are working on our debt too, but being a farmer's wife and farm loans, well, we're always going to be in debt. Ahhhh! Lol. Owell right?!
    Can't wait to read about your trip! :)
