Mama's Visit

My mom came for a visit a few weeks ago.  We LOVE when she comes to visit :) We always have a great time.... some times we just hang at home... we eat out.... we go shopping.... we watch football... we laugh a lot!  This visit was filled with rain so we didn't get to do a few things that we wanted to like visit a new Farmers Market, go garage sale shopping, and get country side photos for her friend.  We made the best of our time together and I completely  cherish each and every minute that we spend together.

Here is Slinky checking out Chewie on the couch.... he looks so long! 
Confirms my suspicion that he is part Puma

Mom and I went driving through the Hill Country one day.  We stopped in Wimberly and visited a few thrift shops and ate at a restaurant that I have heard great things about.  The Leaning Pear lived up to its reputation... delicious food!

We all went out to dinner at South Congress Cafe one night.  It has been years since we have been there and now we regret it has been so long. Our food was delicious and service was great.  Here is Jimmy the ham

Mom and her blackberry mojito.  That drink was delicious

A couple doors down from the restaurant was a store called Big Top Candy (hmmmm.. or at least I think that was the name).  They had so many types of candy.. new and old!  We all picked a few different things to munch on.  If you have any type of sweet tooth then you need to go and check it out!

After dinner we had tickets to go watch a show at the Long Center.  It was done by Blue Lapis which is a local dance company.  The most amazing dancers used the silk ropes to dance off of the outside pillars.  Those dancers were AMAZING. I wish I had a picture to show you but there was a warning before the show saying not to take pictures and both Jim and Mom looked at me when the announcement was made. Pfft. Whateva :)

I want new side tables and coffee table so mom and I went shopping.  There is a new consignment shop near the house so we checked it out.  Anybody want a big orange metal bull with mom's boogies on the horn? :) 

Our original plan was to visit another BBQ place in town but they sold out of BBQ before we got there so we headed over to Franklin's BBQ.  They are a brick and mortar store versus the trailer we tried to go to.  We waited in line for about an hour and was told we might not get ribs, but we decided to wait on.  

We just made it in! 

Just looking at this photo makes me hungry

After our meat coma we headed home to play with the pups
