As much as we enjoyed our previous weeks up in chilly Missouri and Kansas, the warmth of the Houston sun welcomed us with open arms. The last time I was in Houston I saw my relatives who live in Sugar Land. This week we had a packed schedule and not much free time, so we mixed business with pleasure and had a great few days!
The night we got into town I turned around and this little flower appeared on the bed. My hubby's one of the good ones!
The next day we spent gearing up for the UH vs. Rice football game
I was fortunate to go into the media trailer and meet the announcer of the game
Then, as I was just walking around I ran into the Ultimate Tailgate bus. This bus is incredible and is at every Big 12 game.
The driver invited me in for a little looksy... It was definitely built for a rock star!
Then the best thing ever happened!
A little lady named Stephanie from BEAUtiful Mess walked right into my line of vision. I frantically began waving at her in an uncontrollable and semi-embarrassing fashion. You see, I feel like I know Stephanie and Beau, so it was only natural to act like a total fool around them!
Stephanie and I had planned to meet up at the tailgate and I was so glad that she actually found me.
Let me tell you quickly about Steph -- she's even more gorgeous in person, her eye lashes go on for miles and miles and shockingly enough, the girl sounds like a Californian! I was stunned... Girlfriend's got no southern accent. Sorry Steph, just outted you!
And not only did I meet Stephanie, but I met Beau and his parents. Not gonna lie, I kinda felt like part of the family and can't wait to see them again!
The next night Bryan and I ventured out to one of our all-time favorite restaurants from California. We generally don't eat at chains while on the road, but this chain is one that we do not have in Charlotte, so it was a must!
We didn't even need to open the menu, as we ordered "the usual"
Chilean Sea Bass
Creme Brulee (I customize this to my liking... it's the 'old' Yardhouse version and was taken off the menu a few years ago)
Before hitting the road and driving to our next destination we worked at the Texans vs. Jaguars game - Reliant Stadium
