We went on a wine tour to Fredericksburg which was a blast. We found a shuttle company that will pick you up from downtown, and bring you to each winery, pick you up, and bring you back near your hotel– 20 dollars for a whole day! http://www.290wineshuttle.com/ <– There’s the link if you are interested. It was well worth it and we didn’t have to worry about anyone missing out on the fun because they had to drive. Fender was here that weekend so it was cool to show him what Texas is like outside of Austin– I think Austin has it’s own little subculture that is way way different than the rest of Texas.
Had a lovely day off of work with my new work friends- we had a nice brunch and great margaritas. That’s an amazing benefit about my job– the friends. I’m so lucky to have found a company that has a great group of young girls working there that have welcomed me into their circle of friends.
February is also Valentine’s Day which means lots of heart shaped food – it’s kind of our thing 🙂
Also I saw a unicorn on 6th street- had to share it with you guys! Enjoy!
For Thanksgiving we headed down to South Padre Island — typically a wild Spring Break destination, but in the off season it was very tame. It was quite touristy with beach shops and souvenirs lining the streets. South Padre Brewing Company was a great spot we checked out. Their pizza was top notch! They also had a sea turtle rescue where they helped nurse the injured sea turtles back to health and then release them.
On our way back we stopped for a night in San Antonio- the river walk was gorgeous! It was December 1st and they had lit all the Christmas lights that day. The lights were hanging down from the trees like icicles and their was music and the boat taxis. It was a fun stop I’m glad we took!

Just you, me, the bug, and the open road.
This was the first day we moved to Texas! We drove down, we were so determined to complete the drive in a straight shot. We had it all planned out, I drive six hours, you drive six hours, I drive four hours, you drive four hours, and we stop for breakfast and coffee.
–Yeah that didn’t happen as we planned- We ended up stopping in Tulsa, Oklahoma around 1am and then continuing on the next day. I enjoyed it because we got to drive into Texas with the warm sun shining breath in the dry Texas air.
