Well, it's been a while since I've blogged, but we are in the midst of holiday season and I do work retail, so I apologize. A few weeks before Thanksgiving we headed to Houston to visit our dear friends and have one last adventure with them before they became parents. Little did we know how close they were to becoming parents. In typical fashion, we drove down after lunch and arrived in plenty of time for dinner. We headed over to Sugarland Town Square to eat at a new Thai place, Song Kran Thai kitchen. We ordered a variety of dishes, including appetizers, main courses, and even dessert. All the food was delicious and the atmosphere was really cool too. Everyone left the meal stuffed and satified.
We woke up early Saturday morning to head to Pearland to go to Killen's BBQ. In true Texas fashion, Killen's opens at 11 and serves until they sell out, so people line up for a chance to try the BBQ. It was a nice day, so the wait wasn't too bad. We got there at 10:30-10:45 and waited for about 1-1.5 hours. The BBQ was amazing. We all got a variety of meats and sides and shared. Each thing I tried was better than the next. They also had several delicious sauce options. I didn't come close to clearing my plate, but I didn't want to be uncomfortably full.
After our delightful lunch, we were stuffed and sleepy. Some of us took a nap, while one of us went to fix a cast for a patient. When we were done, we were ready for the next part of our adventure. We can always count on two things when we visit Houston- great food and great beer. Saturday night, we trekked to Texian Brewery to celebrate their 3rd anniversary. We got commerative glasses and go to try several different beers while we listened to a live concert. There were a couple of food trucks there and we enjoyed snacks (We were too stuffed from lunch.) of kimchi fries and cupcakes. We had a great time chatting, listening to the music, and enjoying the beer. Next time you see Mike, ask him about his porta potty adventure, if you want a good laugh.
Sunday morning, the girls got up early to get donuts from the Grove, before we headed home. We had another wonderful weekend with our wonderful friends and can't wait for our next trip to meet their sweet baby boy!
