A Quick Trip to San Antonio

One thing that me and my husband always try to do is going somewhere new and fun. Well, with an upcoming addition to our family we’ve been slowing down with traveling. But really, we are so lucky to live in Austin where there are tons of things to do and places to go to. I must admit, we have been bad in appreciating this, thinking that unless we go somewhere far then it’s no big deal. Aside from in-town attractions, the adorable towns of Fredericksburg, Gruene and New Braunfels is just a little more than an hour away. And so is San Antonio, where The Alamo stands. And yes, it’s also where the Spurs are playing in the playoffs {and yes killed the Dallas Mavericks & now the OKC Thunder}. My husband is a fanatic and graciously gets us front row tickets. Now, I’m not one to splurge on game tickets, my task is booking our hotel.

We stayed at The Menger this time which was gorgeous and brought us back in time circa 1859. And thank you to Expedia, we got VIP treatment with an upgrade to The Sidney Lanier suite and a welcome fruit basket. I mean everybody needs grapes and strawberries after a long drive.

My husband’s honorary grandpa took this picture of us before the game and captioned it, “Wolfman and Lady.” Yes! It’s spot on. And of course I have to have a pic at the riverwalk, which is gorgeous day or night.

And finally, a quick snap of how the baby bump is coming along. I’m almost 5 months and feeling so much better than the first 3 months. Happy Friday everyone and have the best of the weekend!

About Maureen

Details are my passion. From curating vignettes to designing spaces. I thrive in finding the finds and just discovered the art of collecting...all while sipping on a cafe au lait & a french macaroon in hand.
