Hello friends! We’re still on our post-every-two-weeks schedule round these parts. Apparently I’ve got a lot going on. Hmm. And I don’t like saying I “don’t have time”. Because I believe that you make time for the things you want to. And this just hasn’t been a priority, sooooo….
But here we are! So let’s do this. Before we get into Reese and I’s wild adventure, I’d like to start this by saying
AGGIES VS. ALABAMA TODAY. AHHHHHHH. SO PUMPED.
If you remember, two weeks ago Reese and I dropped of little nugget and hit the road of freedom for an anniversary weekend! I was nervous that I was going to be sad dropping little LaddyBoy off for his first slumber party, but let me tell you what. As soon as we left I had the “Boooornnn freeeeee” song in my head. I’ve never felt more alive. Just me, Reese, the open road and my pump, which I’ve dubbed “Mr. Sucky”. (I’m real funny, I know.)
Our first stop was a gas station to take a potty break. Typical. Also – we were going to get some breakfast and (unbeknownst to be) Reese and I were apparently racing to the breakfast taco counter because there was only one left. I’d like to point out that I 1) didn’t know Reese wanted this taco so bad, and 2) wasn’t even going for the taco in the first place. But it’s a good thing I’ve got fast reflexes or I would have been taken down by my own husband on our first wedding anniversary. Over a taco.
We hit the road again, and made it to the little town of Wimberley! Now, I don’t know who designed the roadways in this town, but maybe they should smoke a little less of whatever they were smoking. The roads in the “downtown” part gave me a migrane. We quickly gave up and decided to just park and walk to the shops. I’m not a really big shopper, so we went into 3 stores for 5 minutes and decided that was enough. And it was at this moment we decided a drink was necessary.
My first IPA in 10 months.
Reese cut me off after one.
After I was reprimanded, we decided it was a good time to go see the landmarks we came to this little town for. First we went to Blue Hole.
We’re not really sure what is so special about this because it literally is just a part of the river. If I were to re-name this sacred ground, I would call it “Small Rectangle from a River”, but nobody asked me.
Next was Jacob’s Well!
We got lost. Typical again.
Once we finally made it, it was pretty cool. There was a diver there and for some odd reason he felt the need to go down into that hole. Reese and I both decided he’s nuts and confirmed that diving is not for us. He came up because “it was getting narrow and he couldn’t really see anything anymore.” What? If that was me, that’s probably the moment that I would have panicked and died.
The Aggies played that night so we had the big decision of if we should go out somewhere or order food and watch it at the house. When we were grabbing lunch we started asking a few locals if they had any suggestions (and after they suckered us into buying a raffle ticket for their kid’s school – two hours away from us – that one beer was still getting to me), they told us about this really cool place in Driftwood called Hays County Store. If you’re ever in the area, you should definitely stop. We were able to sit at the bar outside and watch the Aggies play semi-well! 😉 There were even a few other Aggies at the bar even though we were technically in Longhorn country. The food was delicious and the guy singing played Marie LeVoux, so I was sold.
At around 8:00 we headed home because that’s late. Once we got to the house, my plans of being wild officially ended at 9:00 when I passed out.
The next morning was our actual anniversary so we started the day by eating the last slice of our Dallas Cowboys cookie cake from our wedding…and OH MY GOODNESS IT WAS SO TASTY. Maybe because I hadn’t had cookie cake in a few months, but it was the best thing I’ve ever eaten.
Afterwards, we packed up and got ready to go. We stopped on the way home to fill up with gas and take a potty break and guess what! We locked the keys in the car.
So that was really fun. Luckily we were only in Carmine so my parents could bring us the spare key to my car. Shout-out to the Village Market in Carmine for having neat things to look at while you wait for your mom to bring a key.
And that was it! Our wild weekend away…one beer, landmarks and year-old cookie cake. We really live on the edge.
But I definitely understand parents when they drop their baby off for a night and are like BUH BYEE. We love little squeeshy-boo-boo-bear, but it’s nice to do grown-up things. Like go look at rock holes and river rectangles. Lol.
Maybe next time I’ll get real crazy and stay up until 10!
