I must start with: I heart Texas. This was my first time to Texas, but it sure as hell will not be my last. I even called Matt to tell him I want to move to Texas (although, I may have been in the “heat of the moment,” as some may say, since I say this about most every place – Cabo, Mexico City, San Francisco, NYC, Miami).
Erika and I headed to Texas to visit our great friend, Kat. She lives in a beautiful house in San Antonio, with a huge dog named Diesel. Erika and I arrived on a Thursday evening to a wonderful cooked meal and lots of girl talk/catching up. Friday morning, Erika and Kat indulged me in a “wog,” which is my daily walk/jog. In the afternoon, the three of us took off to Alfred Angelo, a wedding dress store, and found what will probably be my wedding dress (not seen to the right). I wish I could show the blog world but I would like to keep that a surprise for my future husband. Afterward we did what every visitor to Texas must do: we ate TexMex! Almost as good as the food was my dream margarita: a large frozen margarita with a beer bottle in the glass.
Saturday was a day of adventure. We went to Enchanted Rock, which is a boulder located about an hour away from San Antonio. We climbed the rock/boulder and sat and stared out at the Texas flat land. We then stopped in a small, charming town between Enchanted Rock and San Antonio to explore and grab some grub. We also partook in beer and wine tasting, which I learned, not to my surprise, that Texas is not really wine country. When we got home, the ladies and I headed to downtown San Antonio where I got to see the Alamo and experience River Walk, a fake river in downtown San Antonio that has many restaurants, bars, and shops along it. We ate at what would be a super romantic Italian restaurant had there not been a nightclub across the river that was blaring hip hop/pop music.
