Ok, ok, one more thing...

Now, if you are reading this (is anyone really reading this?) then, you may know I LOVE monkeys.
And if you go to downtown Austin, you will definitely drive by  the capitol building.  It's beautiful and really hard to miss and you shouldn't- cause it is beautiful.  Anyway, then you should head the other direction...down to SoCo (or south Congress Ave) for some of the coolest shops and restaurants and unique "things" in Austin.  Otherwise known as the weirder side. But still, very cool.  This large monkey sits in the window of one of my favorite shops- Monkey See, Monkey Do.  If there were a way to wander off with a 5 foot wooden monkey without looking too suspicious, I might be tempted.  Wait...I have been tempted, there is just no way to do it. So, it will stay there. Perched and smoking.  For all to admire.  As it should be.  And if you have a craving for something really sweet, wander across the street and get yourself a big cupcake.  But, skip the whip cream blast.  I went for it cause it was free and wanted more for my money. And there was a sign reminding me that you only live once. It had to happen.  It was a little over the top and way too sweet and filling for me.  But a good idea if you are in need of a shot of something extra.

Have a wonderful day.
