The Eyes of Texas Are Upon You...
A few weekends ago, we surprised the boys with a weekend trip to Austin to see their favorite football team...the Texas Longhorns.
We toured the campus, which meant lots of walking, and even stopped on the strip to have lunch at Texadelphia. The hubby and I enjoyed the fabulous cheesteak sandwiches with mustard blend sauce, but the boys stuck with their favorite...chicken strips and fries.
We bought a few goodies from the Co-Op and made the long trek over to the stadium. We spent the next several hours trying to keep cool. The boys learned all of the UT game chants and cheers. I think JB's favorite included the phrase "...give 'em Hell", but he dared not say it!
Believe it or not, I even wore a Longhorn shirt. I've never owned one and it will likely become a yard shirt or pajama top; nevertheless, my crew had fun and it was nice to do something out of the ordinary.
The creme de la creme (for me anyway) was our stop at the Coach outlet store afterwards. Few things make a girl happier than pretty shoes and a nice handbag!
