Girls trip and Thanksgiving

So Holly and I went to San Antonio for a girls trip and I had a complete blast! We stopped on the way down in San Marcos at the outlet mall and it was fan-freakin-tastic. We got some awesome deals! Anyway, we got down to the hotel in SA and parking was horrible. I ended up having parallel park in a loading zone (in Ryan's big ass truck) but we eventually got into a spot. After we got settled in, we walked down the river walk (the wrong way at first) to downtown and had mexican food. It was delish. Then we went stalking, which is super fun by the way. We stalked several people and got completely lost in the process. We eventually found our way back to our hotel and crashed.
The next day we went to the zoo. I freaking LOVE the zoo. There were hippos! We also went shopping. That night for dinner we walked to downtown again and ate at the Rainforest Cafe. Fun experience! I had never eaten there before. We then tried to walk home and got so so so so sooooo lost. We had to whip out Holly's phone with gps to get home. When we FINALLY saw our hotel we were so excited and hauled butt to get back. We're pretty sure some people were following us a couple times but thankfully we knew their tricks after learning them while we were the stalkers. HA.
On the third day we went to The Alamo, the Wax Museum, Ripley's Believe it or Not and to the Witte Museum. I think we went to all of these this day, one of them could have been on day two. Now I'm second guessing myself. Anyway, at Ripley's there's this tunnel that looks like its spinning and you're supposed to walk through it. Um, yea. I almost fell over. I had to seriously hold onto the rails. Hilarious. We walked through about 4 times each. So. Much. Fun. At the museum, there's a children's science museum. That and the tunnel were probably my favorite parts. Then that night we bought matching HOT pink converse and ate at Saltgrass (mashed potatos = Heaven) and did NOT get lost for the first time! We were so proud. All in all a great trip! I've never had so much fun getting lost with someone before!

My grandma called me fat (not a biological grandparent). Not exactly those words, but still the same message. One of my aunts gave us a sob story trying to get everyone to feel sorry for her like every year. We haven't fallen for her tricks in years. Same grandma mentioned before drank too much and nearly face planted on the way out of the house going down the steps. My parents fed my dog lots of table food and he now knows hot to beg (thanks, by the way). But best of all, my mom taught me how to make some of the candy that she makes every year. I feel so special to have been taught this. She even made me a copy of my great-grandma's recipe cards to take home. I had a good time catching up with my youngest sister and cousins and Ryan got to hang out with my uncle and some cousins that he really likes. Overall a good Thanksgiving! I'm very thankful for all my blessings in life! (even cranky grandmothers)
