Home again, home again jiggety jig!!

We’re back from Houston and I’m exhausted, I have laundry to do and blogs to read. I’m too tired to be funny, hell I’m too tired to type, so these are funny things that happened with no explanation.
We stopped at Burger King on the drive home and I threw french fries at J’s car and ketchup packets at Princess through the windows.
Last night J and I went out with my cousin, Mere, we made fun of trashy whores and almost went to get tattoos at midnight.
J and I both took our finals for our class and both got Cs in the class, ruined our GPAs but yea, we passed!
We had our egg hunt yesterday at 5 pm but last night when we got home from the bar we found 2 more eggs in the grass.
Easter was awesome, the rodeo was awesomer and I am awesome-ist!


Yee Haw, Let’s Rodeo!

Yesterday was a blast! We got to the carnival around 1:00 pm and we rode rides until 6:30 pm, the kids rode rollercoasters, tea cups, ferris wheels and more. None of the kids cried, they were all good and no one got scared on a single ride…okay J and I were a little freaked out when we rode the ski lift thing that takes you from one side of the carnival to the other. We got up to the top and then apparently there were problems with the ride and we were stuck in the air for 20 minutes. Its like a real ski lift and I had Sophia with me and she kept trying to look over the edge or lean forward and she very easily could have plunged to her death (this is not even an exaggeration). J took lots of pictures at this point to try and keep her from freaking about being stuck in the air like that, Princess thought it was really funny to freak her mom out.

We rode the giant ferris wheel again and the kids had fun looking out at the whole carnival and all the way to downtown Houston.

When I said we were going to eat our weight in carnival food I wasn’t lying. We had corn dogs, turkey legs, pizza, pie, lemonaid, funnel cakes and lots of soda. If I didn’t gain like 10 pounds yesterday it was only because we walked like 100 miles (okay, maybe it wasn’t 100 miles but it was close).

We all put on sunscreen except J and we all burned except Princess. I have a total farmer’s tan now but it was nice to get a little sun (especially since Luis pretty much has made sure we haven’t gotten any sun the last 2 years).

The rodeo was a blast, Sophia slept for the first hour but after she woke up she enjoyed it just as much as the other kids. Nicholas was in love with the bull riders and pretended he was riding a bull (the bulls were harsh last night and only 3 riders made it 8 seconds). Sophia loved the horses and she adored Pat Green. Princess and Sophia danced in their seats through all the songs (well, the ones we were there for at least). We left early because Nicholas was getting really tired, he fell asleep in Luis’ arms which is really unusual. So we made the long trek back to the car and got home at 11:30 last night. After a quick shower I put aloe on the kids and then showered and aloed myself and went to bed. My kids and I slept until 9:00 this morning and since we didn’t have enough sugar and crap yesterday I went got donuts for breakfast. No wonder my kids love grandma’s house so much.

Lunch with my posse!

Today I went to lunch with Mere, food is one of my favorite parts about coming to Houston. I went to Amazon Grill today and got an amazing grilled chicken and avocado sandwich, I was in heaven. Tonight I’m having world famous barbecue for dinner and tomorrow I want to try and squeeze in Pico’s, which is literally the best Mexican food ever, for lunch, mmmmm fajitas!
Well, I need to go get ready to go out tonight, so I’ll try to get on when I get home and blog.
Is there such a thing as drunk blogging? Maybe I’ll start a trend…lol.

Trish, if the girls like the carnival you should buy some of the half price tickets and save them for later. J and I are going to spend all day on March 20-something (whatever day Pat Green is playing) at the carnival with the kids, we could meet up and let the kids meet and ride rides and laugh at people, it’ll be fun.
