San Antonio, Texas!

Wednesday, March 20, 2019

During Christmastime, when my parents' Christmas tree was filled with boxes of all shapes and sizes underneath, there were two peculiar ones that had my and my sisters' attention. She was relentless and wanted to know who they were for and what they were so badly, it became an ongoing joke. Lucky for us, they were for us, and even luckier, they were clues that we were going on a girls weekend getaway trip with my mom. So, a few weekends ago we spent three days in San Antonio, Texas, soaking in great weather, amazing food and lots of laughter. We've decided to make it an International Women's Day tradition (and have our eyes on Mexico City next), and I'm so into that idea.

We flew out on Thursday afternoon, returned late Sunday night, and stayed at the San Antonio Marriott Riverwalk, which was the perfect location — central to all things touristy but just a mile away or short cab ride to some more local restaurants and attractions. B actually surprised us and had breakfast delivered to our room on Friday, which I wish I had gotten a picture of. It was the sweetest gesture. We spent our days walking around, stopping for frozen drinks and chips and salsa before walking lots again. 

My mom chose San Antonio because she had been with my dad nearly 20 years ago and really enjoyed it (and, after the winter we've had in Chicago, we were begging for that kind of heat), and my sister and I were pleasantly surprised. We had amazing dinners at Ocho and Acenar and would go back for the pastries at La Panaderia in a heartbeat
— wow, wow, wow. While we (regrettably) split the Nutella cruffin on our first day and didn't get it again, we all decided it was the best thing we ate all weekend. So, so good. 

We had a hilarious adventure getting churros at Churroholic on our first night, and the next morning we had the best breakfast tacos at Pete's Tako House, where the wait was long unless you were willing to sit in the blistering heat outside (again, Chicago winter, sign us up). On our last day we had brunch at Guenther House, and I'm so glad we did because we wouldn't have seen that historic district otherwise. We walked around admiring all the old homes and history, it felt a lot like New Orleans. 

We hit up a few big tourist spots, like walking along the River Walk a few times, visiting The Alamo and walking around the Japanese Tea Garden, which was our favorite. We sat at the Garden's cafe for hours, just soaking up the sun.

We also ran into the perfect mural for the weekend — love this image of diverse women. 

I'm a sucker for any sort of tradition and love traveling, so I do hope we make this weekend a regular thing. It was so nice to take some time to unwind with the ladies I love the most <3

    I got my ex husband back to me and also got fertile and gave birth to twin girls after 12 years of marriage.
    When I came online last year, I saw a testimony about Doctor ODUNGA and how he has been helping people with marriage issues and I decided to contact him. We spoke on email at and later he gave me his WhatsApp number which is +2348167159012. He assured me he would help me get my ex husband back after 3 years of no contact. Doctor Odunga is the best spell caster I must say. My husband called me after 24 hours of contact. The third day, I received natural herbs for fertility and after using it, I became fertile and conceived. I and my husband reconnected, had sex and I was pregnant. Presently I am happy to say I am the mother of twin girls and this is ALL THANKS TO DOCTOR ODUNGA. I came online to say this If you need help, I believe you are saved with this man.
