Houston Trip Part 2


//My shirt is Old Navy($11)/Jeans are Express(sold out)/Crew’s shirt is Old Navy, sold out. Similar one here($8)/hard bottomed, leather version of her shoes here//


If you’re looking for a last minute gift…this tunic shirt-dress is only $11! They’re selling out quick. Mine is a small and it’s a little baggy, an extra small would’ve been perfect! I like super hug shirts. I bought it to wear as a dress originally, but it was too short for me to feel comfortable in. Alright, continuing on from my last post about our time in Houston!

Jake always wakes up before Crew and I do when we stay in hotels and he sneaks out to go workout. Then he brings me back breakfast. Being that I don’t get out of bed til 10 or 11…I don’t know if breakfast is the correct word. But he knows that food will always entice me out of the cave of blankets. I had packed up the room the night before so I didn’t have to stress and jam everything into my suitcase last minute and pray that all of my things made it out of the room. I’m known to do that. I tell myself(and Jake) that I’ll wake up at an early enough hour to bathe, get ready, neatly pack my things in an even more organized manner than when I packed at home for the trip, and be ready to walk out the door BEFORE check out time.

Reality is…I call the front desk and give them some lame wad excuse and request a late checkout. Jake hates that! And I hate that he hates it! Like…if they cared, they wouldn’t have agreed to it so sweetly. Then we’re all tense with each other because Jake is frustrated that I’m running late and I’m frustrated that he’s hounding me to hurry. It’s a cycle that needs to be broken. But I want it to be broken with Jake becoming super patient and understanding about why I’m running so late and not so much that I get up earlier. (I’m not vacation and should be able to be as lazy as I want.) But by the time we get everything packed in the car, we’re usually back on “holding hands” terms.

Jake wanted to walk around and see the area around our hotel. It was super sunny and warm, it felt like a spring day more than a winter one. There were two parks nearby and it was like all the people there were workers that were cleaning, planting flowers, building things. As if they were little energizer bunnies! We got to talking to a security guard and she said they were trying to get everything ready for the super bowl that is taking place in Houston this year. We kinda had an “ohhh, makes sense now” moment. They had a huge football mounted in the park with a countdown on it. There were 61 days left when we were there and it will be fascinating if they can get everything done by the time it happens. I’m guessing with the arduous laboring we witnessed, they will.

We saw a few of the Houston Rockets players walk from the gym to the parking garage which was pretty cool. They’re flipping tall! We were hoping Hardin would walk out, but he never did. After a bite to eat at chick-fil-a, we hit the road for home! It was a screech-filled vehicle for several hours as Crew made sure we knew how unhappy and miserable she was, but finally around 9:30…she fell asleep and we were able to drive the next 5 hours in peace. Poor Jake drove the whole way, fell asleep at 3:00am and went to work at 7:30 the next(well same) day! And not a single complaint. He’s such a good man.

Needless to say we are glad to be home and are all “tripped out” for now!

    DYING LAUGHING about: I tell myself(and Jake) that I’ll wake up at an early enough hour to bathe, get ready, neatly pack my things in an even more organized manner than when I packed at home for the trip, and be ready to walk out the door BEFORE check out time.

    Reality is…I call the front desk and give them some lame wad excuse and request a late checkout. Jake hates that! And I hate that he hates it! Like…if they cared, they wouldn’t have agreed to it so sweetly.

    THAT’S EXACTLY MY BRAIN!!!!!!😂😂😂
