Texas Trip {lots of pics}

As usual, I am playing catch up on my blog . . . so let me rewind to a few weeks ago when I went to visit my parents in Texas (Lubbock to be specific.) I stayed for almost a week and it was great. We went out to dinner, laid out, Mom and I shopped, had plenty of wine (he he) and just enjoyed our time together!

First night, Mom & Dad took me to dinner at one of the best restaurants in town, the Double Nickel! Wish I had taken photos of the inside because it was all black and red with gorgeous chandeliers and lighting! Can't wait to go back!

After dinner we went for some after dinner entertainment . . . .

Every time I come to visit, Mom always has fresh flowers in my room! Love it!!

Next day . . shopping with Mom! We spent almost 3 hours in this one store. They had a TON of accessories, shoes and handbags AND a frozen margarita machine!! ha ha - what can get better then jewelry, handbags, shoes and margaritas!! It was SOO fun and we left with lots of goodies (that will be another post in itself!)

After a full day of shopping we met a friend of hers at this great little place Stella's for happy hour . . . . as if the margaritas were not enough, ha ha

Us afterwards - we were "happy" alright! LOL

Next day was pool time! Mom making us a drink to take out by the pool!

That night we went to The Ander's house, friends of my parents. They had the neatest back yard and patio!

I made friends with these guys!

While we waited on dinner we enjoyed these amazing bacon wrapped stuffed jalapenos!!

Look how pretty it was when it got dark!

Dad, Mom and Me after dinner

The next day was gorgeous! Mom, Dad and I went out for lunch and well . . . more shopping!

We do not have a World Market where I live anymore, so I HAD to go while I was there since they had one! Look at their wine selections! They also carry my favorite candles so I had to stock up on those! Oh how I miss this store!!!!!

Mom and I found this adorable dress shop. This is me after trying on the cute dress behind me . . . . . . SOLD!

Next day, it was time to come home! I was sad to go but had a blast. By the looks of my plane ride home, you would think I was a guy . . . beer and pretzels! ha ha

Heading home to my honey!
