Deep In The Heart Of Texas

Friday, April 17, 2015




A couple of months ago my 80 year old grandma decided she wanted to take a girls trip before "she got too old." She'd never been to Texas and thought San Antonio looked fun.

So low and behold, I'm in San Antonio with my 2 year old niece, my mom and sister, and my 80 year old grandma. We're quite the crew. Taking that river walk by storm if you can imagine. And per my grandma's request I brought my selfie stick...




We're getting crazy here, in the words of my grandma, "I tell you what." Lola the diva has been all over the place.


I'm just happy to be somewhere warm and green. I don't even care that it's rained every day. At least it's above 55 degrees.


And Lola and I have really bonded as you can tell. She's not terrified at all in my arms. I just have a way with kids.

I'll wrap it up here. Let's all just take one more look at my beautiful glowing legs, can you even tell I'm wearing white shoes? Probably not, it all blends so well. They haven't seen sun in years. 

I'm trying to get my Grandma to head to Austin today... Don't get me wrong, I've enjoyed all the river fun, I'm just ready for a little Sixth Street fun. Is that right, Austin people? Is that the cool place to be?

We'll figure it out. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

  8. I've never been to that portion of Texas, but traveling with older people can be tons of fun. Last year, we took my 80 year old grandpa on vacation with us, which was a cruise on the Disney Wonder, stopping in Cozumel and Grand Cayman. He had nothing but good things to say about it when he got back home to Colorado. Glad I was there to share it.

  10. You are just all over the place with your wonderful travels lately. But, yes, time to head to Austin. There's only so much fun to be had in San Antonio. Maybe Lola will like you better if you bring her to the good bars.

  15. How great that your grandma was able to take a trip with the girls before she gets too old to do so, what is sad is that for many people 80 would be too old
