We left Thursday morning around 8 am and arrived just a few minutes before midnight in College Station.
facebook status at the end of the day: is happy to smell the smells of Texas, see mile-wide sunsets, and enjoy road trips with lots of laughter...but most of all at this moment is thankful for this Texas bed.
Friday we helped out with a bit of decorating, went to a great Tex-Mex place to lunch, and attended the rehearsal dinner (even though A & I weren't in the wedding...they invited us to join since we were the only non-party people to make the trek). After the dinner I went out with the bride and her bridesmaids to a little bar where I enjoyed a yummy mojito.
Saturday A and I ran errands--got requested coffee for people back home, barbeque sauce for others, and ate lunch at Rudy's...which is the BEST barbeque ever. I got some sauce for myself, and I don't even LIKE barbeque sauce that much. This stuff though? Amazing.
The wedding was at 2 and we were on the road again at 6:30. After a wine explosion in the backseat (did you know that corks pop out in heat? Did you know Texas is...hot? Did you know that having wine in a non-upright position in a hot Texas car is NOT a great plan?) we did have to stop at Wal-Mart on the way out to get some upholstery cleaner and a vacuum pump wine seal to salvage my sangria! We (amazingly) made it back in time to catch the last part of the 9:00 service at church where one of our students was being baptized.
facebook stati throughout this experience:
is picking up groceries for the greater Nashville area, and was quite excited to see a great wine selection in the grocery store. Could get used to this Texas thing...
hair actually stays straight in Texas. Perhaps she should stay.
really doesn't care if it's Texas or Tennessee...she just wants out of Arkansas
And I think I may finally be caught up on sleep. We shall see.
