My trip to Texas last weekend was filled with a great amount of good company, good food and a little R&R. My cousins have such a warm and inviting home, and it was nice to be able to spend time with them now that I don’t get to see them as often as when they lived in CT.
Not too shabby, huh?
The weather was great; not as hot as I expected Texas to be in June, and the activities were just what I had in mind (mostly shopping and cooking)! Here are some highlights!
First stop on the Texas tour… Tom Thumb. Everything really is bigger here, even the grocery stores!
I was also invited (tricked) into going to a workout class at a place called Velocity, which is really more of a sports performance training – boot camp gym (torture chamber). But in all honesty, it was a great workout, I just couldn’t really move properly for about 3 days after.
We went shopping in a small town called Grapevine, TX where we pretty much ate our way through the farmers’ market
I found these cute packets of Almond and Peanut Butter, which looked a bit more appetizing than the unsalted kind I first purchased. I can’t wait to try them!
And I can’t forget the delicious food I continued to consume while I was here, mostly home-made, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Check out my post on my cousin, Austin’s Cilantro Pesto Chicken Panini’s!
All in all, it was a great trip! I hope y’all (I learned how to spell it correctly this time) get to experience Texas at some point in your life. It’s definitely one of a kind =)
