FRIDAY | After a super long drive due to so many accidents on the way, I arrived at Hinee Gourmet Coffee shop drained. I loved seeing this, though. You can put a book down and get a new one to read. After about an hour, Patricia got off work and I headed over to her house where we caught up about life while she got ready.
FTK was having an Alumni dinner and since I haven’t seen some people in a while (January) I figured I’d show up. I was happy to see some poopies I haven’t seen in forever, one being Andrew. I haven’t seen him in almost a year. I guess having distance away from someone you use to see and talk to every single day changes your point of view of that person. Seeing him and holding a conversation with him was a little weird. But he’s happier and knowing that is comfort enough in my little heart.
A few of them headed to Top Golf while the rest of us headed over to the Pub Run. This is only my second pub run and I must say that I’m over it. Sorry, Andy, if you’re ever reading this. I’m not about that life. haha
But I will say I do like being active for almost five hours. Walking and constant dancing. No one in Houston is down to go dancing with me so that was the main reason I went. Patricia bought me a hurricane and it did nothing to me. And it tasted like toilet water. It wasn’t good at all. Ugh … waste of money.
We ended at Kremlin where we danced non-stop. I had to take a picture of this because it was just too pretty.
SATURDAY | I planned to head home but they wanted to do brunch before I left. So …
15900 Via La Cantera #21200
San Antonio, Texas 78256
Benedict [slow roasted pulled pork, local sunny side up eggs, toasted baguette, farmhouse tomato, smoked chili hollandaise, seasonal fruit] | $11
I liked the runniness of the eggs that covered the baguette to make it soft. The flavours were, meh, for me, so although I like the ambience, I don’t think I’d come back to order this dish again.
Hand Cut Parmesan Fries | ~$3
But I will come back to order like five orders of this, though. It was that good. I wanted to order some on the drive back, but I’m sure my friends would think I’m a fat ass, if they haven’t already.
We started talking about trips again and we found some pretty cheap flights to Aruba around my birthday week so I got super excited. I don’t know if we’d actually end up going and if we do, who all is going with us but it would be pretty nice to go on a friends trip because I need one. If we don’t end up going, I’m probably going to go to Hawaii or something fancy with June. Either way, I’m going on a dang trip this year.
The drive home wasn’t too bad. I actually made it in record time.
I felt pretty bad, though. Thirty to forty minutes into my drive, Jakob texts me and tells me he’s finally free. He was willing to drive to where I was if I wasn’t too gone but I said I’ll just see him when I see him which most likely will be in April.
And on the drive, I kept getting text messages. Andy had mass texted and emailed everyone that we were wanting to go to Aruba. haha Seems like things are flowing to a yes, but we’ll see. We’ll see.
When I got home, I was so pooped. Rizzo climbed into bed with me and cuddled. We slept like that for a good hour plus. I love when he lays on me.
I knew Dad was off so I made sure to come back to have dinner with the family. They let me pick which is a dumb choice because around this time of the year, I’ll always pick crawfish. And surprisingly, they let me get it!
The rest of the night I received text messages from San Antonians to see if I was down to hang out. I forgot to tell them I had already left. I usually stay until Sunday so they were quite bummed. Next time, my loves, next time.
Then it was drinking time with Sammy because that’s all we ever do. I was surprised he asked if I wanted a beer tower. I’ve always wanted to try a beer tower. I mean, I know it’s nothing fancy, but it’s still super cool. I can finally check that off my list! Our server was probably quietly judging us because Sammy says that this is usually for three to four people.
I snapped a picture of this and I got questions on, how do you even drink that? … Because they thought you drink it like you would with a beer bong. haha
SUNDAY | I had a list of things I had to take care of but I was too lazy and tired. And by the time I realized what time it was, I had to get ready. Zuco was throwing Vero a surprise baby shower. And I was super excited for the food. I haven’t had great Mexican food in so long and I knew this was going to be the bomb dot com. (Yes people still say that.) I caught up with their family and played with Ryland and met new people.
I took today off to finish my meal prepping that I started yesterday. And because I just didn’t want to deal with people after such a glorious weekend filled with my loves and cuddling with all the poopies.
