Riverwalk, Rudy's and Are you Ready for some football?!

Ben and I celebrated our 3rd year anniversary in San Antonio. Ben's company owns the Westin Riverwalk in SA and so we were able to score the corner suite for 2 nights! We went to the pool, walked the Riverwalk and ate some really delicious food-Two Highlights: Rosario's for Mexican food (the best fish taco i've had... i know i sound crazy, Tex Mex Fish Taco?! Seriously, it could beat any SoCal fish taco anyday) and Boudro's on the Riverwalk. Bourdro's is Louisiana Tex Mex fusion... So good. I had "Big tail, Small tail" it was Lobster, crawfish, and shrimp on top of risotto with the amazing sauce that tasted like creamy gumbo. Sounds ridiculous, it was ridiculously good.

On the way home, we figured out the 35 N is not the place you want to be on a Sunday. So we made the best of it. We had Starbucks in New Braunfels, Shopped in San Marcos, and ate Lunch at Rudy's in Round Rock... (we got so hungry we couldn't make it to Waco. )
But we finally made it to Waco and had a lot of fun sneaking into building that we weren't supposed to be in. Ben says "We'll just go in until we get kicked out". Great influence, right mom?!

First stop, the BU Athletic Center- This is the office facility and meeting rooms for all the sports. It looks great- also of note, lots of tutoring rooms and academic advisors. Ben was pleased to see that Baylor is finally trying to compete in the football recruiting game... you gotta please those mamas and the numerous "academic advisors" are the way to start!

Then we went into the indoor practice facility-- this is really cool. The turf is like the coolest grass astro-turf hybrid stuff i think anyone has seen. All I can say, is these Bears better be good with this "better than pro-team" grade facilities. I'm ready for a Bowl Game!!
Check him out, he's ready for the season!
Yall- Rothers and Pics n Gifts are GONE! They have totally demolished both buildings and just put in grass... sad about the Pics n Gifts guy! Here's the proof...
No stop is Waco is complete without a Mochachino from Common Grounds... it seriously tastes exactly the same. Good way to finish off the trip up I-35.


  1. I'm super jealous! Miss Waco and TX! And especially common grounds :) Thanks for the "inside reporting scoop" too!
