Weekend Getaway

First, let me just say that my family is amazing.  My sister, brother-in-law, and mom all came through this weekend and gave Greg and I a wonderful weekend that ALL couples need.

Friday evening, we dropped the 2 children and 2 dogs off at my sister's house in Round Rock.  We then headed downtown to our hotel room, which had an amazing view!  To our surprise, my brother-in-law had stocked the fridge and laid out yummy snacks ahead of time.  Thirty minutes later, a waiter arrived with chocolate covered strawberries! I may have teared up :)  We made it to dinner around 10 o'clock.  Those who know me, know I rarely make it past 9 pm!

Saturday morning, we slept in.  Ok, so it was only 9 am, but that is HUGE considering I normally get up around 5:30 am.  We headed down to the UT campus, so I could show Greg my old apartment.  It was an efficiency and sooo tiny, but I worked while taking a full load to pay my rent (sometimes 18 hours), and I am so proud.  Just had to get a pic.

We were then off to the Iron Cactus to eat and watch the game.  UT lost :( 
After a nap, we watched the Husker game and they won!  Yay!

Later, we rode a rickshaw to Alamo Drafthouse for a movie/dinner/drinks.  So fun to dine in a theater!
This is our driver :)

Then, we hit a few bars on 6th Street.

Here I am dancing on the bar at Coyote Ugly. So good to mark this off of my "bucket list".

Sorry these pics are so small.  I seriously need to buy a new camera and not use my cell phone.
