Scenes from the Road

So we thought it would be fun to share with you some of our scenes from the road as we made our way from Houston to San Antonio and then on to Austin!!

Let’s just start with the fact, shall we, that there was a GIANT rubber ducky in our hotel parking lot in Houston. Yeaaaaaaa………..

Midway between Houston & San Antonio is a little gem that I’ve been hearing about for the last 6 years….or as long as I’ve known Justin. See about 9 years ago he stopped there randomly to get barbecue there and no place has been the same since. So clearly, we had to stop.

We pulled into San Antonio at night, which I would venture to say was the coolest possible time to arrive. Because San An is a supah cool city and everything is all lit up rainbow style. Here’s a really blurry picture of an underpass we drove by. I thought it was cool. :)

And there are waterfalls all over the place that are also all lit up. Wheeeee!

Remember the Alamo!! “I call on you in the name of Liberty, of Patriotism, and everything dear to the American character…” Why don’t people talk like that anymore?!?

Fun with Rangers!

Yea, you can take the girl out of West Virginia….

PS: Is it me or were Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone totally BFF??

Chillin on the riverwalk tour.

Miss Julia AND her flowered hat

We’re on to the Big D! We’ll see you there!

Patriotically yours,

    Did you happen to stop at Bucee’s on the way from Houston to San Antonio? I’m sure you saw the non-stop signs with the cartoon beaver. It sounds strange, but it’s a super rad gas station that has an incredible bakery with delicious fudge and (the selling point…) clean restrooms. Hah. Apparently their beef jerky is pretty rad as well, according to my husband. Only in Texas would be get excited about a gas station, right?

    welcome to Texas!!! I’ve loved following your blog for the past year and hope you guys thoroughly enjoy your time here. I may be slightly biased, but the warmth and friendliness of Texans can’t be found anywhere else. Make sure to swing into Habenero’s Grill, a great burrito place in San Antonio. My parents and sister, who live out of state, drool for their salsa… :)

    What an awesome way to roadtrip the country, disguised in the form of a series of workshops! ;) What’s on the playlist right now? Can’t wait to see you guys in LA! I’m bringing some form of baked goods for sure!

    I absolutely am in love with your picture of the alamo… an often forgotten piece of American history-thank you very much for posting the pictures of your road trip

    @Ashleigh: no but we TOTALLY did see all the signs! That’s awesome!

    you guys personify "deep and real" – unafraid to reveal all that makes us human – from the depths of our hearts to our quirks and foibles – all those things which make us each unique and special.
    Quack! Quack! luuuve the hat!

  8. Alison

    Thank you for letting us live vicariously a bit through you guys! I want the rubber duckie, think you could tow it up to Maine with you for the workshop here??

    Y’all should go road tripping more often! The night shots of the Alamo are dope (taking it back)!

    The alamo shots are truly really beautiful! I love those fountains by the riverwalk – I have a photo of hubby & daughter there when we 1st moved down here to South Texas. I read this earlier, but didn’t leave any blog love… (I need to be a better commenter vs a stalker) ;)
