Taking on Texas

Its crazy to believe that it was only a week ago that we were living it up in San Antonio.  The Rancher and I managed to leave the kids with grandma and took on a little vacation (oh ya, we went to a wedding too!).  Texas is a great place for a couple of ranchers to visit because our boots and buckles totally fit in.  We could have been taken for locals... until you listened to us talk of course!

Before we got too busy with the hair and nail prep for the wedding we played tourist for a bit!

Like to the Alamo!  Which everybody and their dog was there too.  Maybe we shouldn't have gone during spring break...  It was a good hangout for the preacher man too.  I didn't hear what he was saying, but he was pretty fired up!

There were some beautiful places around the grounds at the Alamo.  I wish I could have taken some it home to be at my house.  A little pink amidst the brown would be awesome!

My new sister-in-law said that we had to go to Rudy's BBQ for lunch.  Apparently its famous throughout Texas.  With all of the hype I was expecting something huge and somewhat of a nice restaurant.  But its not... its a hole in the wall.  And in Texas that means that it is the real stuff.  I'll admit that it was stinking good!  This from a bunch of country folk that love their BBQ!  I highly recommend it!

The Rancher found the Rose Palace, the home for George Strait's Team Roping Classic.  He was supposed to be picking me up but got distracted when he saw so many horse trailers passing by.  Ya, he totally ditched the idea of coming to get me.  Eventually he came back (he knows what is good for him), but he started explaining really fast why he was late.  He didn't forget about the roping... We had to go back and check it out before we got on the plane.  I guess its better than going to the roping instead of the wedding...

Walking through the city was so fun for this country girl.  I don't want to live there, but there are so many fun and interesting things to see.  I love the shops, the architecture, the people, the landscaping... ALL OF IT!  Maybe its because we don't see so much of that around here, like a stoplight.  We don't have those in our town of 90 people.  Or tall buildings or cool fire escapes.  Its all so exciting! 


  1. This is Joyce, Brittany's mom. I love your blog. These pictures are beautiful! I would also love it if you could share any pictures you took at the wedding. I didn't even take one picture at all. You could send them to my email: I'm excited to see you again in a few weeks!

    1. I'm so glad you found me! Its so much more fun to show you what we do than just try to tell it. I will get those pictures to you as soon as I can. I make no promises when... just that I will soon!

  2. I love that you went to the San Antonio Rose Palace (George Strait's roping). Guess it's a good thing that your husband got side tracked!
