Texas Road Trip

After visiting my family for a week in Louisiana, I decided to head to Texas with some great friends to surprise Alisan (pronounced Alis-AN) for the weekend.  This was kind of a last minute trip just like mine and Fosh’s beach trip.  In fact we were supposed to go to the beach with Alisan and her husband this summer, but after a minor change of plans Fosh and I decided to go by ourselves instead.

Since college Jessica, Amanda, Alisan, and I have planned a trip every single summer so that we could catch up and spend time with each other.  Over the past few years, we have traveled to Destin, New York City, College Station, Gulf Shores, Austin, Nashville, and Dallas to see each other since we all live in different cities/states now.

Amanda did not go on this particular trip because she now has a baby and was visiting her out-of-town family.  To make a long story short, Alisan knew Jessica was coming to visit her, but she didn’t know her sister Abby and me were going to tag along.  Don’t worry we checked with her husband first to make sure it was okay!  She was not very surprised (that’s just the kind of girl she is), but she was very excited to see us!!! And to be honest, we were super excited to see her too!!!

During our weekend visit we talked, and laughed, and talked some more.  We played Apples to Apples until the wee hours of the night.  And by played, I mean we lobbied as hard as we could hoping the judge would choose our answer instead of Alisan’s answer because she kept WINNING!  Our lobbying went as far as trying to prove warts were indeed useful and corn on the cob was considered chewy.  I think we even convinced ourselves of these “facts” at some point throughout the weekend.

In addition, we explored the downtown area of McKinney and propped ourselves up in the dressing room(s) at the outlet mall in Allen.  We did our best to hold every second captive and had a blast doing it!

Alisan and I have an ongoing joke that it doesn’t matter how far away we live from each other OR how long we go without seeing each other, we still somehow manage to dress very similar to each other.  On this particular day, we both walked out of our respective rooms wearing the exact same shade of purple.  We just had to shake our heads and keep going.

I love these girls so much and am so thankful for their friendship!!!  The next girl’s trip (plus husbands) is Nashville, RIGHT??Thanks for being such amazing friends!
