Big Mo.

The one and only Morgan Stuart came to Austin.

In case you didn't Wikipedia her, here's what makes Morgan so awesome:

1. She won a softball national championship with the University of Washington her sophomore year. She's basically the best softball player ever. Now she's running clinics everywhere- Canada, Alaska, Washington, San Diego... she even had one here but it was canceled because of the rain.
So studly.

2. Morgan has the greatest sense of humor. We officially became friends when we bonded on the ride home from a high school softball game by quoting SNL's Best Of Will Ferrell lines. Nobody knows Will like Morgan does.

3. Morgan's a Stuart and that means she's freakishly athletic, very humble, extremely motivated and genuinely kind. The entire Stuart family is awesome.

So I got to spend two and a half days with this little lady and show her around Austin. I'm sorry, let me rephrase: I had two and a half days to convince her to MOVE to Austin (wishful thinking). I think it worked...

One of the many adventures we went on this weekend was a trip to Torchy's Tacos.

Austin has this obsession with tacos. It's totally an Austin or Texas thing because I had never heard of breakfast tacos or any taco place, really, in California that was bombdiggity. Burritos are the hot thing in California.

Let me tell you. Torchy's is where it's at.

Robbie was the third wheel this weekend and he was such a trooper. He drove us everywhere.

I know I gush about how wonderful Robbie is which can get a little disgusting at times. I love the boy, I really do. One thing that drives me absolutely nuts about him, though, is his sense of direction.

He could get lost walking down the street.

So imagine my surprise when he totally outsmarted me when driving to Torchy's on 1st Street. I insisted that there wasn't one there and turns out, he was right! AND he got us there in record time without getting lost.

My b, Robbie. You win.

Morgan waiting in line at Torchy's, straddling a puddle.

Torchy's is amazing. I discovered The Democrat taco and it's now officially my favorite. I was obsessed with the shrimp one since I moved here, but The Democrat takes the cake.

Roberto. Goofball.

Torchy's was stealing all the action. This little vegetarian trailer was looking pretty lonely.

Love this picture of Morgan. Totally her.

I wish all of my friends lived close to me.

More pictures from Morgan's visit tomorrow!
