I feel like my blogging game has been slacking since moving, but I guess that's what happens when you get busy (I love to blog, but it always seems like it is the first thing to get cut when I'm short on time!). In effort to get back on the blogging train, here's a quick peek of what we've been up to!
Shortly after moving to Texas, Kelli and I made plans to get together for dinner! It was so great meeting her, and she is as sweet as they come - I feel so fortunate to already have a friend in the area!
Cheers to blog friends turned real life friends!
Part of getting settled in a new area is finding a new grocery store and learning the layout - I hate wandering!! I'm an in-and-out kind of grocery shopper, BUTTT I couldn't help but stop and admire the beautiful flowers that they were selling... can't go wrong with hydrangeas!
John and I have been so busy putting things together and unpacking, and we decided we needed a mini date night to Alamo Drafthouse which is a movie theater that serves dinner and drinks during your movie! We saw Bridge of Spies; John liked it, but I thought it dragged on a bit. It was quite fun, and while it may not be for everyone (since people are ordering food throughout the movie), we had a great time!
It rained nonstop over the weekend! Despite the flood warnings, John and I ventured out to the outlet malls, and I'm not going to lie, I didn't mind how empty it was! And I officially awarded John with the husband of the year award... I was dying for a soft pretzel, and John was willing to stand in the rain for me - now that's love. :) :)
The rain finally cleared up on Sunday, and John and I headed out for some delicious Mexican food at La Gloria... it was delicious and just what we needed!
Also!! The best part about all of the rain was that it really cooled down the air temperature. I was able to (legitimately) wear a scarf and a vest - so there was no shame in my fall game!
La Gloria serves Mexican street food from different styles all over Mexico... this will certainly be a spot that we take people visiting from out of town! Tacos, tacos, tacos!! (Speaking of tacos, I've been looking for an excuse to use the new emojis; so this killed two birds with one stone - score!)
