Our Houston Trip

This past weekend my husband, his sister (M), her husband (D) and I went to Houston to see Glenn Beck's live comedy tour! I like to be informed about our government and what is going on in the world, but I do not watch news religiously (like my husband does) it is just too depressing for me. So I had an idea, but really didn't know what to expect from this comedy tour. Let me tell you it was hilarious! I was laughing the entire time, some parts almost to the point of tears!

Downtown Houston


We left for Houston Friday afternoon, and made it there just in time for work traffic, which I was expecting to be much worse than it actually was. The trip up there was filled with laughter thanks to my husband - the stand up comic (according to his sister). We made it to the hotel with a couple of hours to spare before the event so we decided to eat, change clothes and meet M&D down in the lobby. Oh yeah, our room was on the 20th floor - how cool!

Me and Hubby


The Verizon Wireless Theater, where the event was being held, was only about four blocks from the hotel. We weren't sure if they would let us have cameras in the theater, so we left them in the car - stupid! Everyone else had cameras and we didn't feel like walking all the way back to the car, so we didn't get any pictures!

We ended up getting back to the hotel around 10:45 that night and ordered some yummy room service right before they closed!





The pool on the roof of the hotel


That next morning we woke up and took part in the complimentary continental breakfast and then played a game of pool in the billiards room. It was too bad we didn't know about that room the night before, it would have made for a fun place to hang out! After breakfast, we went up to the roof level where the hotel swimming pool was. That was the only time we took pictures on the trip! We didn't end up swimming because we only had about an hour before check-out time, but we stuck our feet in the cool water!



Me pretending to shower


The water was cold at first - he didn't know I took this picture!


It ended up being a nice mini-getaway which I think we desperately needed! Thanks again M&D for inviting us!

Aww Houston! I haven't been downtown in a long time. I try to steer clear of the traffic. You're so lucky it wasn't too bad! It's funny to think of people vacationing in the place I live. Oh and thank you for the blog award. I will acknowledge it. It's been insane lately!
