Little Moments

I'm back in Charlotte today after a whirlwind two days in Chicago for work and a weekend in Houston for the Texas A&M vs Alabama game. Because I live so far away from my family, I make it a priority to soak up every minute I have when I'm home, it's important to stop and appreciate those little moments if not the visit goes by way too fast. I'm the queen of napping, but joke with my mom when I'm home and tell her we don't have any allotted time to take naps when my visit only consists of three days.
 
My mama and I lounged by the pool on Friday and caught up on all the gossip we miss living far away from each other. We soaked up some sun and ate sweet potato fries like they were going out of style, it was exactly the kind of day that I needed.
I had a date with a cute boy I went to high school with on Friday night...
Saturday I woke up early to head to College Station for the Texas A&M vs Alabama game. I've been going to Aggie games with my granddad ever since I can remember, and it's where I've made some of my favorite memories with him. These moments have created a special bond between the two of us that I don't share with anyone else.
A trip to Houston isn't complete without visiting with my siblings, so Sunday I had brunch with my two older brothers and SIL's before heading to the airport. We ate at the Down House in the Heights, and if you're looking for a cool brunch spot in Houston I highly recommend it. I didn't try them but apparently their chicken and waffles are fantastic.
How cute is my "nephew" Gus?
 
I might return exhausted, but there will be plenty of time to catch up on sleep later. What did you all do this weekend?

Yay for mom and daughter time! Although I'm an LSU fan, I wouldn't have minded being at the A&M game! Go Aggies! Anything's better than Bama :)

I love weekends at home... especially when there is football involved! :) Sounds like fun!

Aw, sounds exactly like my trips home! (although, ironically, I live in Chicago and my family lives in North Carolina. So almost the opposite of you. Except Texas isn't in the occasion for me. lol) ANYWAY, Gus is ADORBS. Totally cutie!

Love the pics of you and your grandpa at the games, so sweet!

Would have loved to have been at that game! My H is getting his MBA from Texas A&M and we wanted so bad for them to win the other day.
