Home from Houston

I'm back from Houston and I have to say it was an awesome trip. There were a few minor issues with me getting frustrated with bad navigation on the trip, but otherwise the day was great. So great in fact, that I've had to recover all day today by being extremely lazy and napping on and off. We didn't get home until 4 a.m. last night which obviously had something to do with it.

So without further ado, here's a photo blog of our day yesterday.

Unusual crafts at the flea market.

Some pineapples for sale too.

One of the many food stands at the flea market.

The flea market was great, but not really what I expected. I thought it would be more like a garage sale, but there were a lot of knock-off booths there. Cheap sunglasses, cheap t-shirts, knock off Coach bags and things of that nature. They even sold birds and dogs there. Some of the puppies were so cute that I had a hard time not bringing Boomer a new playmate home.

My bulls-eye at Baker Street Pub where we stopped for lunch. This place had amazing food and was located near Rice University. It was an awesome area of town and I'd love to go back and visit some other places around that area.

Yay, looks like fun!

"The Love Guru" is actually not as bad as the critics said. We had quite a few laughs. I mean it's stupid but it doesn't pretend to be something it isn't, you know? We both agreed it was pretty funny.

I hope you're doing well :)

We had a great time too! I wish we could have done some touristy stuff in Houston like yall did, but oh well, I guess it gives us a reason to go back.

Baker's Street Pub is one of my favorite places to go. They have them all over the state actually. Rice Village is great, and there is a famous street there called montrose chalked full of resale and vintage shops. Its also the museum district. Very pretty. Try staying at the chic boutique hotel down there called the ZaZa hotel. It has themed rooms. Check out
