Ahhhhhhhhh, This week, a recount of last weekend, spent at the Westin Hotel Galleria, our (the Little Bride & I) Christmas Gift to each other, just prior to our Christmas Day Celebration.
Our weekend started last Friday afternoon, as we left League City for Uptown Houston. Nothing like parking your car for the entire weekend and having absolutely everything at your disposal, all under one roof, so to speak. Except, we checked in, showered, and left the building, to go to Downtown Houston. We did leave the car parked though and hailed a cab as we headed to a party at Sambuca's (thanks KR & Fam) Downtown. Nothing like a Hip-Happening party with free food to lure you away from "absolutely everything at your disposal, all under one roof." Did I mention Libations??? It is the Holiday Season, you know. No pics though: It was a Private Party. But, it was a blast. And then, it was time for our cab ride back to the hotel. There are only two ways to describe this particular cab ride experience: 1) Have you ever been in a cab in New York City??? or, 2) It takes approximately 20 minutes or so, one way, to get from where we started, to where we were going. I think we made it in 7 minutes flat, some of which felt like we were on only two wheels. The kind of ride where, when (and if) you reach your destination, you want to get out, kneel down and kiss the ground, indicating that you made it and you are still alive and on solid ground. Now, imagine sitting next to Donna (backseat driver that she is) during this ride: Just sayin'...
