Pour Some Sugar on Me

This weekend we decided to visit Sugar Land, TX, home to our friends, Ashley, Jason, and Mildred.  Cecil is quite in love with Mildred and needed to see his lady.  :)  It was a good drive (about 3 hours) and we got to see new parts of Texas, including the area that had been hit by wildfires.  The biggest success of our drive was that Cecil was really good the whole time and didn't require any medication.  We were really hungry upon arrival so Jason took us to the Earl of Sandwich for lunch.  It was really good.  I love sandwiches and these were no exception.  They were warm and had a huge selection.  I ordered the club and it was great!  I wish they had one of these in Austin, but maybe they'll expand!  Jason drove us around Sugar Land, showing us his offices, Town Square, housing, and the new Skeeter Stadium.  Its a really nice area and I can't wait to visit again to see what they build next!  After Ashley came home, the dogs played a bit and we decided to head out to the Town Square for dinner and entertainment.  Sugar Land Town Square was a cool area full of restaurants and unique shoppes.  Did I mention that it was in the high 70s-low 80s all weekend?  Perfect weather for walking and enjoying this area.  Unfortunately, Town Square was already decorated for Christmas, which really seemed out of place with the warm weather.  For dinner, we went to Escalante's, a delicious Tex-Mex restaurant.  The food was great, as were the drinks.  I think my favorite part was the queso, which was served with ground beef, tomatoes, and jalapenos on the side so you could add what you wanted.  It was great and we were able to give it the perfect amount of kick.  For dinner, I enjoyed the cheese enchiladas with my Sangria Swirl Margarita.  My husband had Tacos Al Carbon (his new favorite) and realized it was so much food!  He liked it, but said that Pappasitos still make his favorite tacos.  After dinner, we were quite full so we wandered around some shoppes.  We went into a clothing store (the boys loved that) and into a little dog boutique.  Next, we hit the Sweet Boutique for some cake pops.  It was really cute and they also served cupcakes and macaroons.  We each got a cake pop: red velvet for Jason and me, vanilla for Ashley, and chocolate for my dear husband.  They were yummy and the perfect size after a huge meal!  Our final stop at the Town Square was Flying Saucer, a really cool beer bar.  Covering the walls were a variety of plates and there were many, many beers to choose from.  I didn't especially love the beer I tried, but it was a matter of taste.  The boys had a few beers and then we went back to their apartment.  It was a fun, but exhausting day and unfortunately, Cecil didn't allow us to sleep much that night.
