Roadtrip: OKC and San Antonio

Good morning lovely people!

We recently did a little roadtrip around Texas for some interviews for hubby.

I thought it would be fun to share our memories here and bring you guys along.

Both hubby and I had to be at work the morning of our trip. I had a class to attend and he had actual work.

I grabbed a quick breakfast from our cafeteria and it really hit the spot! Simple scrambled eggs, breakfast potatoes, and hot sauce all over errythang…

Once we got to the airport that afternoon we grabbed a sandwich to eat.

Later on we grabbed a hummus chicken wrap for dinner since we wouldn’t arrive in OKC until midnight.

We were in Oklahoma for a couple of days. B did his interview in OKC and then we hung out with our families for a couple of days!

November is a very busy month for our family since it’s filled with birthdays and other celebrations. I’m not kidding! We literally have 1 to 2 birthdays a week in November. Since we happened to be in town we just celebrated everything for everyone at one time 😁

I didn’t record much of our time in OKC, but I did get some pics of our cupcakes.

We left OKC for San Antonio very early on a Friday morning. The hubby had rented a Jeep and I can honestly say that it was a great vehicle for this trip. It had navigation, heated seats, heated steering wheel, bluetooth, and so many more things to make many hours of driving bearable!

It’s been pretty gray everywhere since it’s fall. This was our view from our hotel room:

I worked out while hubs did his interview dinner the first night. He brought me home some chick-fil-a #besthusbandever.

I watched a lot of HGTV and Say Yes to the Dress during our 1 night 2 day stay.

The next morning B went back for more interview stuff and I worked out and grabbed some free breakfast from the hotel. I showered and started packing us up for our next leg of the trip!

Once he got back he worked out, ate breakfast, showered and we headed out to Austin.

I’m going to leave it at that! See you guys in Austin 😉

Oklahoma

We recently made a trip to OKC and I am just getting around to putting up these posts (shmurp)! It was filled with a lot of family time and quite a few babies 😀 We had a great time!

We did workout while there and I had a lot of gas station coffee (which is actually pretty good there). We drank cherry limeades from Sonic and visited a few friends, but mostly we just sat around and talked and laughed and threw aluminum foil balls into trashcans.

The other thing we did a lot of was eat 🙂 I definitely did not do a great job taking pictures, but hubby stepped in and took lots of great pictures. Thank the good Lord for him…imagine how bored you’d be reading about the delicious food I had with no pictures!

The best part of being home is having mom’s home made cooking-whether it’s my mom or my MIL the food is always delicious! We ended up having a little get together while there and my MIL made some yummy food…

There was chicken-grilled and flavorful

Biriyani (rice, chicken, spices, etc) and a chickpea curry

We had some salad (#health) and the orangey rice you’re seeing was one of the desserts.

We also had fruit and naan and other dessert which we didn’t get pictures of, but I will continue to dream about and salivate over.

We had a really fun visit and we were sad when it was over, but it’s always nice to come home 🙂

When mom and dad come to visit…

After the Maui trip we didn’t have true vacation blues because the hubs parents were coming to visit!

They arrived the day after we got back and we had THE best time taking them around and you guys know with us that food is always involved 🙂

Here are some snaps from their stay:

Yes, Mendocino was our first stop after they arrived and yes we did love it!

This cronut from Dominic Ansel Bakery was WAY better than anything I was expecting. It was flaky and sweet!

I’m sure you already know how much we love Midici already from this post and this post and we can’t forget this post 🙂 so it was only natural we took our favorites to our favorite
