Thanks to all who made suggestions on my post about where to take our next vacation. We’re still debating about what to do in the late January/early February time frame, but for now, we’ve got our sights set on a smaller vacation.
For a while now, we’ve been discussing taking a trip down to New York City in December. Even though I’ve been to the city many times, I’ve never been at Christmastime.
But then, earlier this week, Michael said, out of nowhere, “What if we go to San Antonio for Christmas?” And, well… he may have been partially joking, but the idea kind of stuck. It would be kind of nice to go to Texas for Christmas. Not actually FOR Christmas, but in early December. During the Christmas season, you see.
As much as I like New York City, and even though I still want to get there at Christmas time, we are so.much.closer to NYC. It’s a super short flight, we could drive if we had to, and essentially, we could go at any time. Any year.
But going to Texas? That’s not something we would just do.
We were originally considering San Antonio as a “stop” for one of our January/February vacation options, but we figured… why not just go to Texas for a long weekend in December? For us, it’s no further a flight than the one to Las Vegas, and we certainly managed that earlier this year.
After chatting with my lovely Texas friends (whom I’ve never actually met in person, but who knows, maybe I can convince them to drive to Austin from Dallas? It’s only.three.hours. I’m just saying), we rounded out the idea even more. Not only would we visit San Antonio, but we’d also spend a few nights in Austin.
And it just keeps getting more and more tempting.
So, although we have yet to book anything, we are seriously considering heading on down to the Lone Star State.
I just have one question: Are cowboy boots and hats required? :)
AboutI'm Heather. I'm 32 and have been married to Michael for six years. Together, we have two beautiful little girls we love more than anything, and a miniature dachshund who drives us crazy. I'm a full-time working mom who has very little time for my own "stuff" these days, like home improvement, cooking/baking, cake decorating, and photography. Despite the team not making the playoffs since 1999, I'm STILL a Buffalo Bills fan, which I think speaks to my loyalty AND sense of humor. I can't wait to pick up the pace with travel again some day... you know, when we're done being ruled by tiny fists. Welcome to my blog.
