Follow me as I take you through a 20-something's life in San Antonio, the Texas Hill Country, and the "Great State" in general. I'll talk about all the adventures Texas has to offer, how I managed to gain 10+ pounds on deeeelicious Mexican food, and so much more! I don't ever sit still and it makes for some pretty interesting stories!

Oh my darlin' Valentine!

Hello blog world! Today I come to you high on Valentine's Day excitement. We had a great day yesterday, preceded by an excellent weekend, so I thought I'd share.

First and foremost, a big shout out to Chris for the dozen long-stemmed red roses he sent me on V Day, even though he doesn't really read my blog (I say that with a sarcastic smile on my face as I shake my head a little).  I'm an inexperienced flower trimmer, so I may have cut them a bit short...
 He followed that little surprise with a delightful, buttery dinner at Ruth's Chris steakhouse. Let me tell you, I feel sure that I washed butter out of my pores this morning! We enjoyed stuffed mushrooms, Caesar Salad, Filet Mignon, Au Gratin Potatoes, and Creamed Spinach. They sealed the deal with a trio of chocolatey desserts. Delish! I wanted to take pictures of the food but Chris wouldn't let me. It's not exactly your neighborhood bar and grille, and for some strange reason he thought it might be inappropriate! Ha!

So, this weekend consisted of several things worth mentioning. First, we enjoyed a fantastic dinner with great friends on Friday night. We pigged out at Tiago's at the RIM with James and Misty. Chips, queso, guacamole, fajitas, and great conversation...what more could a girl ask for? On Saturday, we made the journey to the SA Stock Show and Rodeo. If you've never been, shame on you! It's a blast!

Of course we found the wine tasting tent right away and enjoyed several "shots" of wine as Chris called them.
Robert, Lauren, Chris and Me at the Wine Tent!
Then we had a glass of wine, some delicious, but sort of nasty, carnival food and watched grown men wrestle with calves. I mean really, I'd like to see a grown man wrestle a full-size cow...now that's what I call entertainment! My fellow spectators didn't seem to appreciate my cheering for the calves, as opposed to the Cowboys. I love it when they get away! Haha! We sealed the evening with a performance by Clay Walker. He was fantastic! Sunday, I made the drive to Beeville to see my Mamacita and Meme. Of course, I had to wait until Meme returned from her Sunday luncheon in Sweeney Switch before she could fit me into her busy schedule! What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than to sit at the kitchen table with my two favorite ladies and drink coffee and eat cookies? I finished the weekend with a game of Golden Tee with Chris and Robert...talk about competitive. They give each other handicap! Overall, it was a great weekend! I vote that we adopt a more liberal work schedule and work 2 days and be off 5 days each week! Who's with me?
