Galveston Beach






This past week we were able to jet down to Tejas for several days to visit our families before another hurricane came. We made it there last thursday night and started off the weekend right with dinner with the family at "LOS CUCOS" mexican restaurant. YUMMMY this place is my fave and the food is devine! Sorry Okies but it eat and poops "TEDS ESCONDIDO" by far.
I must admit I'm a hustler and I'm obsessed with making fast cash! So on Friday morning I had a garage sale at my mom's house and sold a bunch of my sister's stuff since she is moving to DFW and needed to de-clutter. Brad helped me before heading off to his brother's by giving me some good sales tactics to reel the buyers in. here are a few: Wave when the buyers are doing the drive by, makes them feel welcome and encourages them to stop. Greet them and be friendly when they walk up the driveway. Make them want the items by commenting on them like "Those books are some good reads" "That shirt would look great on you" "Aren't those shoes cute" and "Buy three get the fourth free!". I didn't make as much as I'd like bc I did it on Friday and I had to split the proceeds but it was still fun.
We then left to the beach house late friday night and woke up Saturday. My dad and I rode bikes around looking at the local real estate and checking out the beach. Later I headed down to the beach on my own and laid out for about two hours and read "TWILIGHT". We all came back later and swam, boogie boarded, dug for crabs, buried eachother and just had some good clean fun! I love visiting our family and can't wait to go back !
Monday my wonderful photog sister took some great shots of Bro-Bro just playing with Buster her dog son and some profesh one out in her back yard...check it out.

P.S. I'm really bad at taking pics so most of them I stole from my sister...sorry issy

So fun! Glad it was last week and not this week, I don't think Ike would've been much of the party goer. I saw these pics on Isaura's blog and was dying!

I had such a wonderful time, especially that shrimp boi, with red potatoes, sausage, and corn on the cob...and my little Brody was a team player, he was into whatever we were doing...and the beach house only a couple of blocks form the ocean...hope it is still there after IKE... :{

Sounds like you guys had such a great time! I'm totally jealous of your beach trip!!!

Your sister took some awesome photos of Brody. Very talented.

Glad you guys are back!!!

And yea, OkieMex just ain't TexMex. Although the OkieMex has totally grown on me. You should try Dos Gabachos. I think they have recently gotten a new owner and everything is much spicier and tastier! I'm not a fan of Teds. It's nothing spectacular. We LOVED Fandangos in on I-10 when I was younger. FAJITAS! YUMMY!
