I shared a photo preview of my spring break earlier this week and thought I would expand on it today! Bear with me friends!
For those who were wondering, I only worked weekends at my second job so it was nice to have 5 whole days completely off from both jobs.
On Tuesday, I took a bus down to Houston. It was a great trip and I got to spend lots of time with my parents and grandparents. Anytime I go to Houston, lots of food is involved along with trips to HEB. I found a couple of new favorite items though!
On Wednesday, Dad and I scored tickets to see Santana at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo. Before the concert started around 9:00, we had time to walk around and view the livestock.
Vendors featured a variety of commodities: clothing, shoes, trucks, jewelry, and even mattresses/hot tubs. Those were pretty gross by the end I bet!
My vegetarian heart tried not to get too attached to all of the animals…. This is one of the first years where I felt strange at the rodeo. Seeing all of the animals in pens and seeing other animals being used for the rodeo events (didn’t help that one animal became injured!!) made my heart a bit tender.
The rest of my pictures didn’t really turn out but click here for the 411 about some of the most common rodeo events.
Each evening closes out with an hour musical performance. Santana was awesome!
The concerts are always my favorite part. So far I’ve seen Black Eyed Peas (back when they were popular!), Clint Black, Lady Antebellum, The Band Perry, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, and Blake Shelton.
There was a lovely tribute to President and Mrs. Bush. Still can’t believe they’re both gone 🙁
We got in super late after Santana ended. But Thursday was Pi Day which had me all kinds of excited! This meant HEB had a sale on their pies.
However, I’m more of a pizza pie person myself. I enjoyed a lovely gluten free veggie pizza at Blaze Pizza! Mine is the middle pizza
Italian food coincidentally continued later that evening as Mom and I enjoyed listening to Dad and his jazz band at a local Italian restaurant. This restaurant hosts local artists and even have special dinner/theater productions. I really couldn’t find much to eat but I ordered this caprese appetizer and enjoyed it.
During our down time, Mom and I constructed a diaper cake for a friend. I scratched out the name because the shower hasn’t happened yet. However, I will be posting a tutorial in April because I get to make another one soon! They look quite complicated but they are fun to design. Lavender and mint were the nursery colors.
So that’s basically my spring break! Lots of naps, TV time, book reading, and time with Shay and the dogs took up the remaining part of my break.
