Congratulations to Amber for getting the "Washington, nice apples" blogbucks.
So here are the other highlights from Texas.
|Jordan ate the whole time.|
Monday was FHE - I made Donbrons and Dumbroads for the treat. I think one of my favorite things about the beginning of the week was that Amber would introduce me first as her best friend, and then she would introduce Jordan as her surprise. ...it still makes me laugh - he got upgraded by the end of the week - but I think it was guilt. Face it Jordan - I'm the favorite.
Monday I had the world's smallest breakfast - everything was small - debunking the theory that every is bigger in Texas. Look at this syrup!
|Three pounds of sugary death!|
We went from the River Walk to meet up with Rub for dinner. It was so good seeing her again! I think it's been about three years! That girl needs to move back to Virginia (ahem - hope you're reading this Rub)
Wednesday was our spiritual/over eating day. Temple in the morning, nap, and then lots of eating. Institute - followed by more eating. I think this is where the bulk of my vacation weight came from. ...we also took a lot of photos.
|Note to readers - I have gotten a lot of questions on whether or not I gave Amber this black eye - I did not. As much as I would like to claim it...|
|I know. I know. Don't play with your food.|
|Tell me how you really feel, Jordan.|
|I'm in there somewhere|
|This belongs up there with the giant cinnamon roll but I am having trouble moving it. The water glasses should have been the hint that everything here was definitely bigger.|
Thanks Amber, for putting Jordan and I up and making the trip so much fun! It was great spending some much needed time with one of my best friends (oh - and Jordan I guess :P) I can't say that I loved Texas though - there was something about it that just made me a little sad on the inside. I don't know - maybe it was the lack of vibrant color. I don't think I'll be taking another trip to Texas unless it is to visit someone. Plus - I've got some serious eater's remorse.
