Weekend Snapshots | 39



Today's Weekend Snapshots is brought to you by The Shack Burger Resorts unfinished restroom deco. I imagine if they continue up the wall, it'll be a sweet finished project! Aside from this wall, something else that stood out to me in this bathroom was how clean it smelled. It's not something you run into everyday in public restrooms, yanno 😩

FRIDAY | I rarely include Friday but I'm including it because Finnashit and I took a cute picture on the couch and as a proud dog mama, I must share it 😍 I worked half a day because I was still feeling crappy from the teeth extractions I had Wednesday. If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook (shameless plug 😉), you'd know that I had a killer clean on my grill and removed my last two wisdom teeth on the left side of my grill. Doc gave me like 16 shots inside my mouth, y'all 😟 But I survived it even though I still can't chew properly and I'm getting these killer headaches, I'm glad I got this done. I wonder if I'm dumber, though, since I have no wisdom teeth 😂

SATURDAY | I met up with the lovely Jihane and her kid, Sean, at Canyon Creek Cafe for Frito pie. If you're not familiar with Jihane, she was born in England and raised a little there and Venezuela. So she's a British Latina and yes she has the accent. In English, not Spanish like some folks think, haha! Anyways, she's been living in Houston for 6 or so years and there are plenty of nomtastic foods that she hasn't had a chance to try. One of them beingFritoo pie and since Anthony Bourdain mentioned it in a show she was watching, she decided to give it a try. So we ate and chatted and of course I had breakfast tacos. It looks awfully good but it wasn't the best I've ever had. On a happier note, the fruit was on point! 

Afterwards, none of us were ready to go home so I introduced them to Space Montrose, one of my favorite artisan stores in the H! (Read more about my visits here, herehere, and here.) The best part of this store is obviously the goodies for sale but what I enjoy the most is how friendly the staff is. From the moment you walk in to the moment you leave you are greeted or you'll hear a have a great day! Y'all know I'm a stickler for good customer service so this place makes me smile! We bought some goodies and then off we went to our casas. On the way home, I saw a wall with some art and snapped a shot because art!!

When I got home I checked the mail to be surprised with more snailmail! I swear the TacoGear and SewBonita folks are the bestest! Not only am I supporting small businesses by showing them love & buying from them, but I've gained the owners as friends and for that I am grateful! Thank you Elena and Gerald for being awesome folks!! So my package came with the sweet taco bag I bought from TacoGear made by SewBonita and a ton of stickers because it makes my paperlovinghead happy! Oh, and a taco lover pin! Ah, I love these people!! 


SUNDAY | Woke up early to take a ride north to Conroe for some bike races. Got some donuts to fill my facehole because nothing can be done with a cranky Shankasaurus! Spent pretty much all day taking pictures and recording some cool stunts on what is used as a BMX track but for this day it was just regular ol' racing! Bought a tostada from the food truck and was highly disappointed with it. It's like this weekend didn't provide me with great tasting food but maybe a lot of it may have been due to my mouth not feeling 100%.

Rain was threatening us all day but it didn't show up until the ride home. Storm clouds always amaze me so of course I take pictures of it. This one is pretty trippy and even more so when you're driving towards it. Dinner was at The Shack Burger Resort and I was not disappointed. Granted I didn't eat the entire burger but what I did eat was amazing. I had the Fireman burger and was so hungry (since my tostada sucked) that I didn't even take a picture! The burger had fried freaking pickles, y'all! Haysoos!! Ended up taking half home for Monday's dinner, haha! Gotta think ahead y'all!

  4. I'm so sad for you that tostada looked better than it tasted!! It looks delicious in the photo. I tried a new vegan Mexican place Sunday night with my dad and it was sooo good! Who knew... vegan Mexican food is good?! Your weekend sounds like so much fun :)
