celebrating 26!

24 Sep

My birthday fell on a Wednesday this year. We celebrated during the week with dinner and drinks at La Gloria, which ended up being an awesome time! I couldn’t figure out what I felt like doing on Saturday, but we finally decided we would head to Austin for the night to spend time with my brother and sister.

Since Charlie had to work Saturday and I didn’t, my parents picked me up and took me to lunch before we headed out to the lake house for a day on the boat! We decided that the dogs would really love the boat so we brought them with us… not so much. We ended up having to pull up to the beach outside our house so my dad could jump off the boat and carry both Juneau and Scout to shore.. hilarious to say the least!

Charlie got off work and met us at Myron’s Prime Steakhouse in New Braunfels where I had the best steak I’ve ever eaten in my life. Easily. I got the 8 oz. filet (Oscar style, because I’m a crab whore), and ate every single bite. If you haven’t been there, I highly recommend it! I also recommend going extremely hungry, because you will be sad if you have to leave anything on your plate!

After dinner, we said goodbye to my parents and got on the road to Austin. Charlie got us a room at the Hilton Austin downtown. It ended up being the perfect location because the bar where my brother works (The Aquarium on 6th) was only a 3 minute walk away! And ladies, you know when you’re walking in stilettos that every minute matters. We met up with my sister and headed to 6th for a few drinks!


I love Austin, I truly do. I love the diversity, the music, the people…what I don’t love is traffic and pedestrians with death wishes, but I guess you have to give and take right?

Sunday morning we woke up bright and early. The Dallas Cowboys kicked off at noon and Charlie wanted to take me by the outlets to pick up my birthday present before we went back to San Antonio.


Ta-daaaaa!!! He listens! He listens! He loves me! ;);) I’ve been eyeing this Michael Kors watch online, in magazines, online some more, on other peoples’ wrists, for months! I spent our drive home coming up with outfits to wear it with.. weird, I know.

All in all, my birthday was awesome! I was so glad to get some quality time in with my parents, my siblings, and Charlie of course. Thanks to everyone for making this birthday one of my best yet!!

Also, the COWBOYS WON!!! It was an ugly, ugly game but a W is a W!

We had some friends over and cooked out after the game to celebrate! The burgers (turkey for me, beef for all the sweaty men in my house) came out delicious and the weather was perfect. Hope everyone else had as great of a weekend as we did!
