After lunch we had an hour or so to kill before going to see a much anticipated movie, so I suggested taking a walk around their mall. (Gotta get those fitbit steps in, right?) Quite a contrast to the mall in Houston we all went to at Christmastime last year. What a madhouse! This one was so empty and easy to navigate that we all came out with sacks of merchandise, despite the brevity of our stay. I am now the proud owner of Reba dress #3 -- pretty much the only dresses I own, come to think of it, being more of a jeans person. Just fell in love with the colors, and knew it would go perfectly with the Reba jacket Santa brought me last year.
It wasn't until I got home that I realized I also had a beautiful pashmina that matched it as well, making it a perfect outfit to take on our Sudanese Adventure.
From there it was off to the movie theater, to see Robert Redford and Nick Nolte in A Walk in the Woods. What a hoot! Afterwards we returned to their house for a couple of hours of "catching up" -- the boys outside with their cigars, the girls inside, checking out a whole houseful of baby stuff that they are so generously planning to pass on to us, since their kids have decided to stop at one child. It was like walking into a Babies R Us store and being told to "Take anything you want!"
When it was time for more food, we headed out to Razoo's, since 3/4 of the group adore fried oysters. Then we were off to do more walking at their beautiful Veteran's Park.

Next morning we headed off to a place called Mi Familia which, unlike Mad Taco, serves the more traditional, but equally yummy, breakfast tacos. Afterwards we drove over to Navasota, official Blues Capital of Texas, which has tons of cute little shops.
Sadly, after that it was time to go back to pack up and head home. Still, that was an awful lotta fun packed into a mere 24 hours, don't you agree?
