Today I'm sharing my Weekend Snapshots 38, brought to you by the fantastical view of lake LBJ in Kingsland, Texas. This is where E and I spent our relaxing 7 year anniversary. Eek, 7 years seems like such a long time and I swear it feels like it's been at least 10 years LOL!
Typically on our lake trips we leave late at night so we don't have to deal with traffic. Bossman gave me Friday off so we left Thursday night. It's not too bad since we both like to drive, but those deers are no joke. I remember driving up there one night alone to meet with E and being so freaking close to hitting a deer that ran onto the freeway. The car next to me wasn't so lucky, though. The noise and the splatter is one of those things I'll never forget. That and the fact that I love animals made that drive so memorable. RIP little dude.
We spent some time on the jet ski's (the water was ccccold) and some time sunbathing but mostly sleeping. We're such party animals, haha! We hit up HEB because food and found a sweet Dia de los Muertos wax warmer. It was $15 and I was iffy about getting it but I know I'd regret it if I didn't. They also had some pillows, cups and a plug-in wax warmer. Might go back for the plug-in ;) We also found some Arby's curly fries that were most definitely a must for our burgers! And in case you're wondering, yes they tasted just like the ones from the restaurant. Another thing we found at HEB was my bestest friend, Blue Bell Cookies N' Cream ice cream. I spoiled the BFF with some time on the lake as breakfast. Cause that's what all champs eat for breakfast, right?
We made some sweet adult beverages and enjoyed our time together without worrying about the adult responsibilities in Houston. Thankfully, Mama Carrizo came through and doggy sat our kids while we were gone. Saturday morning felt pretty weird without my five shadows, haha! I'm pretty sure the next time we go, Finnashit will be joining us. I missed that little boy like crazy <3
We decided to head home a day early so that we wouldn't feel rushed Sunday to get home and get our shit in order before the work week. The plan was to leave Saturday evening and hit up this restaurant in Bee Cave that we've been to before. By the time we got on the road, it was an hour and half before the restaurant closed. Our drive would have taken an hour and we didn't feel right making folks cook for us when we know they would be closing soon. We opted for my favorite place ever, Whataburger!
Our kids were definitely ecstatic to see us. So of course when the boys got on the bed Sunday morning, neither of us said anything. I swear these boys are spoiled as shit and get away with anything! But you can't say no to these faces.. and the kisses and all the lovin'!
We hit up Chuy's for a late lunch and watched our boys, the Houston Texans, get a win in what seems like forrrevveerrrr. Not the best game played, but a win is a win so of course we'll take it!! Oh, and Dallas lost so that made Sunday even better! LOL!
CHEERS TO THE NEW WEEK!!
