Almost 3 months ago (time really does flies) I visited Texas. My trip here was like a G-rated version of girls trip. I went with my niece, my sister, and her best friend to visit her other best friend. This 3 day trip consisted of numerous activities ranging from wedding dress shopping for my sister to numerous Raising Cane's trips. Though I did see a lot and did a lot, I realized on the first day that 3 days was not enough to explore what this big state has to offer. We stayed in Dallas and being from Detroit, I thought I knew everything there is to know about a city, however the more I travel the more I am proven wrong.
The first day was more of a chill day. With that being said all we did was eat. I tried one of America's favorite aesthetic foods, In-N-Out Burger for the first time. (This was right after I gave up red meat...you read that right haha. I had to reset me giving up red meat after that burger.) Out of ten stars I would rate In-N-Out a 7. Very overrated, not meaning that the burger was not good but it was just like any other burger.
The second day was a blur. We had breakfast at one of the classic and controversial places, Waffle House. After our delightful meal, we set out to dress shop for my sister. We went to I believe two dress shops and they were so pretty and cute like every girl's dream. We found some winners and some questionable dresses. Though it may seem like this was a pretty short day it was LONGGGG. We brought the day to a close with a family dinner. It's funny how I don't remember what I ate but everyone else had Raising Cane's. After dinner, my sister and her friends put on a show for my niece and I by singing and acting out some throwback music videos. (If you have me on Snapchat, you saw the live concert too)
For the last full day in Texas we had breakfast at Breadwinner's Cafe which was also scrumptious. With this being said, Texas is a foodie's heaven. You could literally eat at a new place everyday. After breakfast, we went on to dress shop again, this place was my favorite dress shop we went to. Even though we did not find anything, I got to take some really nice pictures. Skylar also enjoyed and ran around and photobombed just about every picture I took. After dress shopping, we went thrifting at Buffalo Exchange. This thrift store is one of the more costly thrift stores. While they had a few nice things, I only purchased a cute multi-colored turtleneck shirt which ran me $18.00 in itself. While my young bones were ready for the next adventure, the grannies needed a rest. We dropped them off to nap and set off for Klyde-Warren Park which reminds me a lot of Campus Martius in Detroit. This is where I explored the city on foot and took most of these pictures. Afterwards, we headed home and went to dinner. I don't recall the name of the place we had dinner but it was like a Joe's Crab Shack. This night concluded with me and Sky cuddled up watching a movie.
The following morning we headed to the airport. For the first time, I spent my entire day in the airport due to our flight being delayed several times. Trips are always cut too short but Texas was amazing with an exception of the blazing heat and intimidating highways. If only I could show you guys more! Times like this are when I wish I would take my YouTube channel seriously...maybe in the future but for now we'll stick to imagery:) I hope you enjoyed your 5 minute mini version of my trip!
