Weekend Recap 4.7.19 In-Laws Visit San Antonio!

Good morning!! I hope you are having a great week so far! Mine has been busy busy busy because I am trying to get everything done before we head to Nashville tomorrow for my best friend’s wedding this weekend!  We are SOO excited! 

 More to come on that… but until then… back to last weekend.  It was definitely one for the books.  My in-laws were in town visiting for the first time since we moved in late last fall.  It was so great to have them in town.  I love having visitors because it forces us to get out and do touristy things in our town that we wouldn’t normally do by ourselves.  

Friday night we had reservations at Bistro 9.

We started with some drinks and mussels that were so yummy.  I got the grouper special and it was soo delicious!!  

We all wanted a little something sweet after dinner so we walked to TCBY for a little froyo!

I got the vanilla and chocolate swirl and it was soo tasty!

Saturday morning after a run I got cleaned up and we headed out for tacos for an early lunch at Betos.  Someone help me, I am addicted to their fish tacos.

Afterwards we headed down to the Riverwalk!

We booked a Riverboat cruise so we could see more of the Riverwalk.

They actually drain the river every five years to clean it and have a huge celebration with a mud festival with a lot of activities.  They next one is next January!!!! I am saving the date for this event!  Anyone wanna come visit??

It was actually really neat!  On one section of the tour, their are love locks like in Paris, which I thought was so cool!

Afterwards we walked up to the Alamo so my in-laws could see it.  They didn’t want to go in so we just took some pictures outside… honestly, it isn’t very exciting. 🙂

My in-laws took an Uber home, but my husband insisted we ride scooters home.  We only live about 6 miles away, but yall it was the funniest experience ever.  My husband’s scooter was so much faster than mine and the scooter I had only went so far then it turned to like 2 miles per hour because it was out of the certain zone.  I kept yelling to my husband that I thought mine was dying and he was like “no, it’s just a slow zone, it will speed up soon.”  Famous last words.  We were about a mile from home and hopped in an Uber to finish up our trip. 🙂

Sunday we went to brunch at Twin Sisters Bakery and Cafe. I got the vegetarian omelette and it was soo good.  It had avocado in it, which speaks my love language. 🙂  My husband and I both got the red eye (or something like that) which was coffee with a shot of espresso which was so delicious!

It was a rainy Sunday morning, but it cleared up just in time for us to do some yardwork!  We put our guests to work… anyone wanna come visit? 😉 

I was on the pick-up crew (picking up all the leaves and weeds) and then I got to work on powerwashing the fence.  Here is a shot of the before.  

IMG_1027

Ahh… I love powerwashing… it is about the only “yardwork” I enjoy.  Now I just have 2 more  sides of the fence to complete. 🙂

IMG_1028

My mother-in-law, father-in-law (he was the blower operator) and my husband mulched and planted a bunch of new bushes, flowers, and rose bushes!! 

IMG_1029

It was sooo needed and our yard looks so much better now.  Yes, that is fake grass in the front… weird, but actually nice because we never have to cut it!

IMG_1030

More mulch!

IMG_1031

My mother-in-law found an aloe plant in our front yard that needed more sun so she dug it up and planted it in a pot so we could put it out back in direct sunlight.  This may come in handy when I get a sunburn down here. 🙂

Friends Weekend in San Antonio for Some Basketball Games and Fun

Hey there friends!! How are you all?  I am feeling so great and well rested after a wonderful weekend at home with my in-laws in town.  I have lots to share from our weekend, but first, last back it up.  In true Taylor fashion, I am a week behind with the blog so here we go. 

Last weekend we had 6 friends in town for March Madness… the boys planned this reunion weekend around March Madness because they are all obsessed (even though I should mention that this is my first year filling out a bracket and I am beating my husband so badly.. I love it ;)). The girls decided to tag along and I was so happy because I would have had to get.out.of.town if it would have just been me and the boys.  🙂

Some friends arrived Thursday and by the time I got off work on Friday evening, they were all at the Pearl having some drinks and food so I went straight there to meet up with them.  We all met up and walked to Down on Grayson for a drink.  

The girls 🙂

We grabbed some tacos on Friday night then headed back to our house for some ping pong.  Saturday morning we headed down to the Riverwalk.

All the boys.

Saturday night we grilled out at the house and had a few friends over for some basketball watching, ping pong playing, and hanging by the fire.

It was a fun and exhausting weekend with all our old buddies.  It was so nice to catch up and we were so grateful everyone made the trip down to San Antonio! 

Questions:

  1. What did you do this weekend?
  2. Do you stay in touch with friends from high school?
  3. How often do you get to see your out-of-town friends?

Bachelorette Party Part 3.. Our Final Day in Miami!

Good morning!! Happy Monday friends!! Eeeek I can’t believe the weekend is already over, but I am looking forward to getting back into my routine and having a productive week ahead.  Plus, my in-laws are coming to visit us this weekend so I am really excited to see them!  

Our last day in Miami for my bestie’s bachelorette party was one for the books!  We lounged around on Saturday morning and sat outside for a bit before getting ready for a fun brunch!

We had reservations at R House for brunch on Saturday afternoon.  The 3 non-sister bridemaids with the beautiful bride!

While we enjoyed our mimosas and the show, at one point we were all in a line circling the restaurant singing Shania Twain’s “Man I Feel Like a Woman” having the best time!

After brunch we went back to the condos to get ready for a couple hours of relaxing at the beach!

Ahh… it never gets old. 

IMG_0965

After a couple hours at the beach a few of us headed back to the condos to get ready for a fun night in while the others grabbed some drinks at a bar near the beach.  We were all ready for a calm night in on Saturday night so we ordered tacos from Bodega for an easy and delicious dinner.

IMG_0261

We wrapped up the night with a fun lingerie shower for our girl.  She had to guess which piece was from which girl which was hilarious.  I think she did get a couple right. 😉  

IMG_0191

After a few hours of chatting, we all packed up our bags and headed to bed.  It was such a great weekend in Miami celebrating our girl and such a fun time toasting her single days goodbye!!  I cannot wait for the wedding, which is quickly approaching!!!!!! 

I hope you all had a nice weekend!! I will share our weekend soon!!  xoxo
