Life Lately in San Antonio…and Are We True Texans Now?

Good morning!!  I’m trying hard to get back onto a regular blogging schedule, but I will tell you, even that has been hard these days.  We just have much busier jobs, a lot of commitments outside of work/after work, and lots of traveling or house projects going on at all times.  I’m not complaining, I love it all, and I am very fortunate, but I just have to figure out where blogging fits into my new routine! I will eventually…because I am not going anywhere anytime soon.  I like blogging too much. 

As I was organizing all my pictures the other day, I realized I didn’t really have enough from this past weekend for a full post, but I had a bunch that didn’t really fit into other posts either so here we are.  You get it all today… lots and lots of ramblings.  

Tacos! Tacos are still a household staple over here.  We make them at least once a week.  Last week I used jackfruit in mine and my husband had mahi mahi.  We just use whatever we have at the moment.  I haven’t had a bad taco yet. 😉


I missed Valentine’s Day on here, but honestly, it’s just another day to us.  We get each other something small and my husband cooks me scallops every year. This year was no different. 


Except this year’s scallops were the best he’s ever made.  It was some kind of lemon butter sauce with parsley, but he also cooked the scallops to perfection.  


This year a coworker was doing a fundraiser for a mission trip so I brought my husband home some cake balls for dessert.


Don’t judge a book by it’s cover… this may not look especially tasty, but I promise you, it was soo good.  Last week I need a quick dinner and was trying to use up a bunch of veggies in our kitchen so I threw zucchini, asparagus, and broccoli in a saute pain then added tuna (from a can) and pesto and mixed it all together and it was amazing.  I will definitely be making this more often when I don’t feel like being creative or need a quick healthy meal. 


Yall, last weekend we went to the Rodeo.  If you don’t know, the Rodeo is a big deal here in San Antonio.  It goes on the whole month of February and each event ends with a concert. While I didn’t love the actually bull riding aspect (it just seems so dangerous??), we got to see Randy Howser, who I really like! The sound quality wasn’t amazing in the AT&T stadium, but it was fun to experience.  



But anytime I get to spend time with this guy (and our friends!!) is a good time!


After the Rodeo we went home for a bit to hang outside with the pups since it was such a beautiful night. It’s not often I get a picture with both pups looking at the camera!


Lately that night we met up with the same friends at Betos for dinner.  They love it just as much as we do.  I got the fish tacos and gobbled them all up!  We ate outside and brought our pups along too.  They enjoyed sniffing all the food. 🙂 

That’s all for today! I hope you guys all have a great day!!
