Hello lovelies! I’ve been on vacation for the last week and took a break from writing. I must say that I missed it and am glad to be back feeling refreshed and renewed. I was in San Antonio, Texas visiting relatives and a few friends while also taking in a bit of what the area had to offer. It was a really fun visit with lots of memories made and laughs shared.
I have a personal connection to the area as well. My dad and his brother and sisters spent a great deal of their growing up time at an Air Force base in San Antonio. I hadn’t been to Texas before, so getting to see a few of the places my dad and his family used to frequent was really nice. Experiencing the insane Texas heat (and humidity) was also quite a shocker. You’ll notice my hair is up in quite a few pictures. It was just too hot to wear it down and keeping it styled was just not happening. Scroll through the pictures below to see what I did!
Flight from Dulles airport! Wearing J Crew shorts, Elle top, and a Dooney bag!
When my flight arrives in Austin, each gate was full so we had to get off the plane in the middle of the tarmac. I couldn’t decide if I felt important because this looked cool or forgotten because a Lufthansa plane was sitting a few feet away at our gate.
Ghost tour! In this window supposedly you can sometimes see a soldier standing behind you. Creepy.
My coworker/friend David went on the tour with me.
My EMF detector! Designed to pick up electro-magnetic forces in the atmosphere.
Our tour guide, Wolf of Bad Wolf Ghost Tours! Such a history buff and full of funny stories.
I enjoyed tasting some macarons in downtown San Antonio Saturday. The line was almost out the door for these treats!
My oldest cousin, Josh, and I. We hadn’t seen each other since we were kids!
Lots of horse-drawn carriages in the city! Most of them were lit up like this too.
The Alamo! Such an incredible place to see and learn about Texas history.
I really like the architecture of the Alamo. It says a lot about the Spanish influence of the area and the origins of Texas.
San Antonio River Walk! A great area to take in San Antonio’s delicious cuisine and people watch.
More on my time in San Antonio to come tomorrow! I’ll be doing a little haul of the things I bought at the San Marcos outlets including a new Kate Spade bag perfect for any young professional lady!
