Week Re-Cap

Happy Wednesday y'all! It has been a. long. week. Not that it hasn't been good, it totally has! It was just extremely tiring. First, I flew back to Austin (back to the burning heat). My parents had a few days of cleaning/buying supplies. We ate a lot of food (which is very evident in this post) & were able to have dinner with the bestie's parents as well. I went to a soccer game at Texas A&M (ugh) & FSU won! Now that I am back on my own my days have been, and I am not kidding, meetings from 8/9am-5pm. It has been crazy. Yesterday one of my meetings finished early so Hannah and I were able to try Nau's Enfield Drug (10/10 would recomend the malts) and we were able to get outside at Mayfield Park. Last night I ate some leftover Indian food and had an early night in because I need my sleep! 
Today is the first day of classes (and more meetings) but I am very excited to see where junior year takes me. How are y'all? -xoxo darling, Hayden.
 The usual pre-leaving tea with the fam @ Wisteria Tea Room.
 I flew back to Austin on Thursday.
 Pretty quickly the fam stopped at Black's for some BBQ.
 And of course we had to get Dairy Queen sundaes because of National Soft Serve Day.
 On our way to College Station we spotted this amazing rainbow.
 We tried Layne's in College Station and thought it was 
pretty good {aside from all the Aggie stuff...}
 Saturday morning working breakfast at La Madeleine.
 A lunch at Cane Rosso.
 An ice cream "stacker" from Cow Tipping Creamery.
 Sunday brunch at Chez Zee.
Lunch at Texas French Bread.
 Hannah & I had no idea there was an old fashioned soda fountain in Austin...but we found it! 
 I had a grilled cheese & a chocolate malt. The chocolate malt was amazing.
After eating a kind of big meal we ventured to Mayfield park for an hour to hike around.

Goals for the Semester

Every semester I try to think about what I can do to make my start to school even better. It has actually helped me get out of my comfort zone a number of times & try new things. This semester my goals are pretty simple, but I think they will be even more difficult to achieve than normal because they are so broad. But I want to work on them, so we will see how it goes. Below I have listed seven of my big things that I want to do, follow along on HT this semester to see how they turn out-xoxo darling, Hayden. 
  • Have more picnics
  • Buy more flowers 
  • Get outside more
  • Do more of my 101 in 1001
  • Be kinder
  • Go for more walks
  • Explore more

Fourth Birthday

After four years, and countless blog posts HT is four years old! How crazy is that?! We've been doing this for four. whole. years. I'm astounded that I have been able to come up with something to post about {almost} every day for the past four years let alone how much HT has grown. I am so incredibly proud to call Haute Table my little corner of the internet and thank goodness y'all have joined me along the way...I might have just been that crazy girl who blogged by herself this whole time but y'all have made creating this platform worth it. As usual I have updated my about page {with all of my favorite photos} & I have another post about the most popular posts of the year coming up later. And then there is a kind of big anouncement.
I am going to be working with a blog designer to completely redo Haute Table. There will be drop down menus and a whole lot of complicated system of coding that I could never do by myself. But basically it will just be a way better user interface for you, the user! I am absolutely thrilled that I am finally checking this off my want list {and my 101 in 1001}. I'm not sure when the new site will launch but y'all will be the first to know!
Lastly, I totally flew to paris just to take these photos...just kidding. Hannah and I did a whole photoshoot this summer for this very day & I am honestly in love with the photos. Not only do I love my Liberty dress, but the scenery in Paris was absolutely gorgeous. I hadn't been in the summer in quite a long time and I had forgotten how beautiful the city is when it's green.
Thank you so much again for your continued support, hook 'em & xoxo darling, Hayden.
