November 15, 2014Devon No Comments »

Jay’s birthday is on 11/11 — and this year we went to New Orleans. We arrived late Thursday night. When we got to the French Quarter, and our Hotel St. Marie, we had to get our traditional Lucky Dog on the street corner. As an extra bonus, earlier that day, his parents arrived to spend […]

To break the monotony of the latter summer months we took several weekend trips to Jay’s family East Texas tree farm and oil fields. On our trips we discovered a great restaurant, Villa Montez. Once a residence from the late 1920s, it sits perched a top a hill, converted into a restaurant. Keeping true to […]

Friday I went to Austin Texas. I went for three reasons: get out of Bryan, see my good friend Sheldon, and finally go to Last Splash (for once out of my 7 years in Texas). I am glad to say that I accomplished all three. Friday night I went out in Austin. I met some […]

My mom came into my room on Thursday and said that before school starts on Monday we should go on a short vacation — very impromptu — to New Orleans. New Orleans is only a 7 hour drive from Bryan. So we looked up hotel prices online and found a hotel special for $60/night (normally […]

I’m heading back to Texas from my spontaneous second NYC trip. This time I went with two of my cousins, Pamela (24) and Ann (29), on my mom’s side. I left College Station at 5 am — my mom dropped me off at the airport. I flew into JFK for the first time. While I […]

Oh My Heck, I’m in Utah, Flippin’ Fetch!

This posting is way overdue — but I have been really busy. It is funny though, I have been here for just a few weeks and all the Utah profanity sayings came right back to me — such a potty mouth — oh, sugar dust. Anyways, my mom and I arrived in Utah sometime in […]
