    Bahahahaha, one of your best posts. And as someone raised in Texas and who’s family is still there, I can’t argue with much you’ve said. Except the wine… there are very nice restaurants there with lots of wine options ;). In fact, the only thing Dallas has going for it is its restaurants and shopping, neither of which interest me much. I couldn’t get out of there fast enough when I was 23 years old ;).

      Thanks Suzanne! I’m glad you liked the post (and could relate)! And you are right about the wine. We went to a really nice restaurant the second night and they had a decent wine list.

      Thanks for the comment dear! 🙂

    HA! Yes – we have a place that serves tacos.
    and chips and salsa….
    you basically hold up the number of fingers to correspond with the number of tacos and you’re done!

      I love that! I think it’s great. Focus on making one or two specialty items AMAZING. 🙂

    This is so funny! I can’t believe you were in Texas two weekends in a row! But man oh man I would have gone again just for the mexican food! It’s neat cause I just finished making a little veggie mexican dinner for us tonight and then I come and read your post!

    I’m glad you had a great sleep Lisa! It’s amazing how well we think we sleep and then we have one of those perfect all nighters and realize, no I am not really sleeping at all!

      It is funny, isn’t it? Everyone we told was so confused. They were like, wait, what? You’re going to Texas again? Yeah it wasn’t ideal but had to be done. The Mexican food was good! What veggie Mexican dinner did you make? Sounds tasty.

    Hey thanks for bringing the rain 😉

    Haven’t done two vacations in a row but I visited basically every coast in a year.
