Texas Visit #2

You may have noticed I've been absent from the blogosphere for a bit- I was in Texas visiting my husband and just never got around to posting. In any case, I had a great time. I could actually see myself living there. I know, I know, living in another state?! That's definitely something this California girl thought she would never say! 

My husband's apartment complex is massive. It's broken up into about 10 different "neighborhoods" where each one has a different focus. His is centered around a few little lakes. It's got this great jogging path, but running in Texas humidity is no joke! I was panting and sweating a lot sooner than normal! 

There are these adorable duckies! I really had to resist the urge to pet one of the little ones. 

I may have the ocean, but this view is gorgeous.

I spent some time at the pool as well. 

We also spent time hanging out with his friends. One (the guy in the middle) is a competitive eater and we watched his latest competition. They were eating burgers, but instead of a bun, it was sandwiched in between two grilled cheese sandwiches. And it had two onion rings in addition to the typical lettuce, tomatoes, etc. My husband's friend won (he ate 4 in 10 mins, the other guys barely finished 2).

We also went on a coffee date. I love that there is so much outdoor seating!

My last night there I cooked and made tacos. :) This was probably the first home cooked meal either of us had in a while.

Hopefully now that I'm back I can get back to a regular rhythm of blogging. :)

How was your weekend?


  1. So glad you enjoyed Texas!! That would be so cool if you ended up moving down here! :0)

    1. Depending on what happens with my husband's work, I just might! :)

  2. Looks like you had a great time! Just thinking about that guy eating all that is making my stomach turn. I don't know how anyone could put themselves through that.

    1. It was pretty intense! I was having a hard time looking at food the rest of the day. But the crazy thing is that this guy is SO disciplined- he still has a six pack after eating all of that! He is super careful about his eating/exercise on a normal basis. It's different, but he wins cool stuff from it. Haha :)
