We hit the ground running yesterday afternoon when our plane landed in Houston. Within 24 hours, we had enjoyed meals at Cheesecake Factory and Pappasito's. For me, the best part is always the bottomless iced tea. We also got passports renewed for both girls and the teen bought a prom dress at the Galleria.
This afternoon, we drove up to College Station and checked out some off campus housing options for the teen to consider. Tomorrow morning, the vet school student son of a guy who works with my husband will give the (hopefully) Aggie-to-be a campus tour. And then we'll head back to Houston for a bit more shopping before flying back to England Sunday afternoon.
You can't visit Texas, even for just three days, without hitting Wal-Mart. As luck would have it, these sweet little girls were peddling Girl Scout cookies and so we had to help out the cause. Not that my ever expanding gut needs any Thin Mints... but they're just so darned tasty.
