Texas road trippin’!

When you live in a small town in Texas, most likely you commute to buy groceries, shop and go to a nice restaurant. I love living in my little small town. And going to our neighboring towns to shop is like a mini-road trip for me.

One of our neighboring towns, Big Spring is my favorite destinations. There are more trees and a few little hills that create a sense of “getting away” from the dusty, sandy cotton fields that surround my little town. There are lot’s cute little stores and places to “finger the beads” as my family says…which means browsing around and window shopping. LOL.

Last week, my sweet pea Mom and I went to Big Spring to eat and “finger the beads.” And for once, I finally remembered to take my camera to show all of the fun we had!

We started at our favorite….Just Peachy Café.

It’s only open during lunch hours…and it’s a cute house turned restaurant.

This is what I had – a spicy chicken breast sandwich with pasta salad.

It’s actually founded by a local church and 10% of their profits go to their missions. In fact…..

Just look at that delicious, old brick! LOL! Downtown Big Spring has amazing old buildings. A lot of them are abandoned. My BFF and I think they should let us have just one for a studio! LOL!

Hey Tiffany! Congratulations on getting into graduate school. That is wonderful news!!!

I love blogs about visiting places as it feels like a mini holiday without the expense! Living in New Zealand it is so far to anywhere, but I love it. I'm just getting my blog started, but there are a few day trips around Auckland on there that may interest you.

Take care and good luck with the planning. Looking forward to reading how you go :-)
