Houston is GREAT!

So, we made it safe and sound into Houston last night, around 10:00pm (9:00pm your time, as we’re an hour ahead). Didn’t actually get to the hotel until 12:30am, because apparently the freeways here have very few exits. Who knew? Man, we went from North to South Houston, all on I-45. But we made it. The hotel is very nice – free high-speed internet, so you know I’m happy 🙂

This morning a few of us went to NASA – The Lyndon Johnson Space Center here in Houston/Galveston. It was really, really interesting. I’ve never cared much for space travel or stuff like that, but we had a great time. We took an hour-long tram tour of the actual government space facilities, and even got to see Mission Control! Picked up some dehydrated ice cream for my nieces as a treat.

We spent the afternoon at the Galleria, which is a high end shopping mall (think Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Ave, Macy’s and more. I managed to spend a few dollars (those of you who know how I shop can take guesses at how much LOL). There was only one dog store, but I had fun in there too 🙂 I fell in love with Borders – it was two floors. We had lunch at Sonic (called America’s Drive Thru, and a company we studied in the first year of our MBA), and dinner at the Cheesecake Factory, which is WAY better than the Cheesecake Cafe. What a meal! We just walked in the door about 20 minutes ago, and my roommate is out somewhere, so I have some free time. School stuff starts tomorrow 😦

So far it’s a lot of fun . . . I’ve picked up some pretty neat souvenirs for a few people (sorry, I’m not rich enough to buy for everyone . . . but I’ll share the pictures).
Hope the dogs are okay, and that Grace hasn’t driven my mom nuts yet 😉 Hugs to both of them – I feel lost without ’em.

Take care y’all!

  1. Sounds like a great time! I can’t wait to see photos.

  2. Shopping sounds like fun. I wanted to try the Cheesecake Factory in Philly but there was a 2 hour wait for a table so that wasn’t happening LOL. Glad you enjoyed it 🙂
