I'm at my sister's apartment right now borrowing wifi. I really don't have internet capabilities at all when I'm at my mom's so I wanted to take this opportunity to get in a post and read some blogs. I hope all is well with y'all!
Here are pictures from last Thursday when I flew into my home state.

Upon my arrival into San Antonio, my sissy, her fiance Gilbert, and my nephew Nathan took me to get some real Mexican food. (New Jersey fails so hard at it.)I had been craving one of these finely shaven ice treats (in a variety of flavors) that Mexican people love dousing with chili powder and something called Chamoy. It's a brilliantly delicious concoction of sour, salty, spicy and sweet. It's an acquired taste for some, but I've been eating it since I was a child.
For dinner, I craved more Mexican food so Gilby hooked us up, even adding a sugary, refreshing pitcher of Kool-Aid. My first day in town consisted of a five hour food coma; it was magical.
I do wish Mikey could have come with me to Texas, as we always come together; however, he is currently enrolled in summer school. On the bright side, he'll be flying into Texas on the weekend of our nephew Nathaniel's first birthday party! That's pretty much why I'm here for three weeks - I wanted to spend plenty of time with Nathan leading up to his big milestone of a birthday, and of course, I wanted quality time with my four month old niece, Makaila. I try and take advantage of family time as much as I can, when I can.
Have a lovely week, y'all!
**Up until a week ago there had been a little set back with one of the sites I'm purchasing from (for my giveaway), but it finally got squared away (I think) and I've already begun purchasing more pretty, whimsical items that are all going into the gift box that will be part of my giveaway. Official deets to follow when I get back from Texas. Didn't want y'all thinking I forgot about it.**
