Our Anniversary fell on a Wednesday this year so a low key celebration was on the agenda. I wanted to try a place we’d never been, but I also wanted it to be really causal as I’d be coming straight from my swim lessons. Scott mentioned Quality Seafood, a restaurant/retail place that has been around since 1938. It’s located in central Austin, so we each drove ourselves and met up at the restaurant. I know, not romantic, but it’s exactly what we wanted.
Scott had oysters on the half shell as an appetizer and blackened drum for his main course. I (of course) had shrimp for dinner with a salad and hush puppies. Their food is delicious and SO fresh!
We extended our celebration into the weekend with mini day trip out to Wimberley. It’s about a 50 min drive from our house, so it was the perfect little getaway and the weather was beautiful!
When we got to Wimberley, we toured around the little town and checked out all of gift shops, boutiques, and antique stores. We scored a couple of fun things: amazing lotion, a new yard flag that says “happy campers”, and the cutest little elephant planter that I HAD to get. We checked yelp for a yummy dinner spot, and was not disappointed. The Leaning Pear is a brand new restaurant, right on the river. It was really beautiful.
We had a great day celebrating each other!
Oh PS…. If you’re curious about our gifts, we stick with the traditional Anniversary gifts. This year’s theme was leather. I had boudoir pictures taken and bound in a leather album( oo la la!) and Scott got me a personalized decorative leather Anniversary gift with our wedding date and “where we live” on a map. It was sweet. I’m a sucker for personalized goods!
