This weekend, I got to go down to Houston to hang with Len. I left for Houston after work on Friday and got down there around 9 or 9:30. I was SOOOOO tired when I got there. I was at work from 6:30 am until around 5:00 pm. It was a pretty typical but good day. I got to Len’s and crashed out almost immediately!! What would I do if he weren’t so understanding?
Saturday, we got up pretty early and headed out to Kohl’s for their 50% off sale. We each bought a few things and it was a fun little shopping trip. We decided we were hungry so we went to find a Chili’s for lunch. I was feeling like their mushroom swiss burger. It’s my favorite of their burgers. 😀 We found several Chili’s close to his house but decided to go to the one out on Hwy 45 by FM 1960. For any of you that know Houston, you’ll know that location isn’t very close to Len’s house but you will know it’s fairly close to Fry’s. That alone was tempting enough for us to drive to almost Dallas for a burger!!
So, we ate then went to Fry’s. After wandering Fry’s and getting some DVD-Rs for me and a movie for Len, we headed back to The Heights so Len could get his hair cut.
We went back to the house and Len watched his movie Constantine. Since I’m not much for movies of this type, I took the opportunity to take a nap!! I was still tired from the drive the night before. It hit the spot because after the nap, we ate Chinese from The Eastern (YUMMY!!!) and headed to have drinks with Super Dave and the crew from Whole Earth at The Heights Sports Bar. I like that place. I could stand to be a regular there when I’m in town! We had some good drinks and coversation and we all voted for Westwood in the KEYE/Rudy’s Marching Band Challenge. As of right now, I have no idea who won. I looked on their website but didn’t find any results yet.
Today, we went to church, then Spanish Flowers to eat (YUMMY!!) then I headed home. It was a nice weekend — just what I needed. I can’t wait for football to start. Between Stony Point, Univ. of Houston and Tx State games, we’ll get our fill between now and November. I’ve got a friend who’s in charge of the pep band for the Houston Texans so I’m going to try to make one game as part of their band. I’ve been offered an opportunity so I just have to find/make time to do it. I think it’ll be a lot of fun!
