I should have taken a picture, but I didn't think Jesse would appreciate it.
Anyway, we got to Houston and headed to Hayley & Jeff's wedding open house. We'd eaten breakfast, nibs, a Dairy Queen dipped cone, and chocolate-covered raisins. At the open house, there were more desserts, including red velvet cake balls, cheese cake, and peanut butter m&m's...yum. The open house was from 7 to 10, and as "kin" (commonly used term in Texas for "as close as family because we grew up in a tiny, rural town together") to the Mattsons, we stayed almost the entire time.
I took pictures...with Cynthia's camera. Don't have them, sorry.
Anyway, Jesse was already annoyed about the car falling apart, and then I starved him all night. Poor guy needed some real food. At 10:30 PM we pulled into a little pizza place called Luigi's. We each ordered a slice, but then they said it was easier for them to just make a medium for us to share. We finished it in 10 minutes.
I would have taken a picture, but I was too busy eating 4 slices of pizza.
On SATURDAY, Jesse and I hung out with Rand and Cynthia. We shopped at a fancy mall (I got navy Sperry's!:), got BBQ for lunch, and then went to an international festival in downtown Houston. That night we met up with Hayley and Jeff and we all went to a ballet showcase at an outdoor theater with free grass seating.
|International Festival - lots of greasy food and sweaty people, including us|
|Grass seats at the outdoor theater - Jesse is SO happy to be at the ballet|
|Not the best BBQ in Texas, but I guess it beats a meal of licorice and chocolate.|
Jesse took the car to a tire shop and they took the skip plate off, so our ride home wasn't nearly as annoying as the ride down. Plus, we stopped for BBQ!
I love new shoes, nice weather, BBQ, Houston, the Mattsons and the Rosenbaughs, ballets, duct tape, picnics, people-watching, road trips with Jesse, and FUN WEEKENDS!!!!
