Yes I know it's been forever since I've updated the blog (4 months actually)...and I never finished the Europe Trip (I really am going to try to get back to that). So where have I been? Traveling for work! It's been crazy, hectic at work, thus I haven't updated the blog in a while. So where did I go you ask...
For 2 weeks I was in College Station. Whoop! I hadn't ever spent any time in Aggieland, I was quite surprised by the plethora of good restaurants (which is really the most important thing when you're traveling for work). One evening I walked all around campus and checked it out. It definitely made me miss the college days - going to class in pajama pants - so awesome!
While we were there the client took us to a restaurant and gift shop called Maddens in downtown Bryan - it was so awesome, if you ever get the chance stop in there and eat, do it. The food is excellent and the gift shop is so cute, I wanted one of everything!
We also ate at the Chicken Oil Company burger place - the burgers were so delish! And the restaurant was so Texan, I loved it!
After my trip to College Station I headed to Denver City, Texas (no relation to Denver, Colorado). To get to Denver City we flew into Odessa and then drove 3 hours south west - yeah so basically to the middle of no where...we staying in Hobbs, New Mexico, which was about an hour away cause it was the closest town with a new hotel and restaurants. We audited a power plant...it was so interesting to learn about how electricity is generated!
The sky in West Texas is so beautiful - it's so flat you can see the storms rolling in!
From West Texas I traveled to Galveston to audit Moody Gardens. Moody is always a lot of fun at Christmas. They set up the Festival of Lights which is 1 mile of lights that you walk through, it's really beautiful. It was much nicer being on Galveston Island in Nov/Dec of this year verses last year right after the hurricane.
So what has Kris been doing while I've been out of town all this time. He's been keeping busy working and dealing with estate stuff (particularly the lake house)...more to come on that later...
