Easter Weekend

Another week late, but who cares :) 

Last weekend for Easter, we went to Ft. Worth to spend the weekend with my family. Friday on the way there of course we had to make a stop at Buc-ee's for some road trip snacks. 

While we were driving, John asked me to put on Josh Abbott band, which NEVER happens! So I had to tweet it. And Josh Abbott tweeted me back! :) 

After we got to Ft. Worth we just hung out at my parents house, ordered pizza (a local place we can't eat in Houston) and went to bed early! 

Saturday we slept late and John and I went to Fuzzy's (another place we can't get in Houston often) for some tacos and day drinks :) I couldn't pass up a 1.99 margarita! 

Saturday night we went over to my Grannie's with all of my family for dinner. We ordered Babe's Fried Chicken (something else we can't get in Houston!) and enjoyed time together since we're not all together very often. My grannie wanted a picture of all the grandkids together so we had a little photoshoot ;)

And the rest of the pics are of the 'zoo' at my parents house. They have animals every where :)

This is my parents dog Buck. He was so sick when we were there and wouldn't get up at all. They ended up having to send him to Heaven on Monday morning :( 


We got up early Sunday to head home and beat the traffic going back to Houston. It's always terrible on holiday weekends. We couldn't go back to Houston though without a stop at 7-11 for a slurpee (yes, again something I can't get in Houston!!) We stopped at John's parents on the way back in Katy and had dinner with them and we got our Easter baskets from them too :)

And Sunday night after we got home, we finally booked our Summer Vacation! We're going back to Gulf Shores! We're staying in the same building we stayed in last year except got a 3 bedroom and 2 other couples are going with us! Should be SO MUCH FUN!! This is a pic from the balcony of our condo! 

Happy Monday!!

Oh my goodness that's a big cat, and exactly what mine looks like! Ps, your Grannie is what? 50? Man she's gorgeous! Runs in the whole family :)

Allison said...

LOVE Josh Abbott! And I think he lives in the same town as me :) That's too cool!

Leslie said...

Your Grannie looks SO young!!! and that's too cool that Josh Abbott tweeted you back... it always makes me feel like I've touched a celebrity when someone like that tweets me back ;)

Yay, looks like a fabulous weekend! Lol, I always have to stop at Buc-ees whenever I pass it.

Joy said...

How did I not know you were from Houston, too?! Anyway, I loved enjoying Houston this weekend. So different from our town. =)

We are going to Gulf Shores the last week of May. And I can't wait to be there soaking up some rays!!

OMG I loveeeeeeeee Fuzzy's too and am SOOO sad there isn't one in Houston. I think there is one in Missouri City (by Sugar Land), but that isn't necessarily convenient!

Kristen said...

$1.99 margaritas?! awesome! I'm jealous you got a 7-11 slurpee!! I haven't had one in FOREVERRR

Isn't getting "favorited" or "retweeted" by celebs the best feeling in the entire world?? I live in Dallas and have been to Fuzzy's but I just cannot believe you don't have 7-11 in HOUSTON?? WHHAAAA??

Allie Sim said...

Hi! I found you on the link up today.

Sometimes there is nothing like day drinking, and those drinks looked amazing!

Looks like a great weekend!

Lauren said...

Where are y'all staying in GS? We went last year and was going to try somewhere different to stay this year?

Rachel said...

I'm sorry about Buck. :(

I love Babe's Chicken!! There is one about 15 minutes from where I live!!


Miranda said...

sorry about Buck...i love all the animal pictures but that is super sad.

it makes me so giddy when some "celebrity" (real or blog world) retweets me :)

We passed a Buc-ee's while we were in Texas. Their billboard signs crack me up! $1.99 margaritas? Can't beat that! Sounds like you had a fun Easter weekend!

Mason's Mama said...

I’m catching up (obviously)! LOVE Buc-ee’s. And goodness that’s awesome that JAB tweeted you back. Love them!! Cute pictures! You look just like your Mama. Sorry about the loss of Buck! I know how hard that is. Can you give me the rental information for Gulf Shores? That’s somewhere we’ve always wanted to try!
