Preppy Visits Houston

Hello Lovelies,

Just a while ago the Preppy Boyfriend and I trotted down to spend the night in Houston. We caught an Astro's game and did some light shopping at the Galleria, we also took all of those great Texas wildflower photos I posted a few weeks ago. So, just for fun I thought I'd share some of our other pictures from the trip!

In the car on the way there after stopping to eat BBQ! (because he's a man's man... we'll excuse the un-preppiness of this camo hat... but lets simply say that I would not be heartbroken if it befell some tragedy)

At the Astros game... the preppy boyfriend hates posing for photos in public... so he had enough of me asking to take pictures of us!

This cute couple got engaged, he asked on the jumbo-tron. I know cliche, but still it's part of their story, and it was their special moment, and gosh it made me smile and I don't even know them. The second picture is supposed to say "She Said Yes!" but the "Yes!" kept flashing and all though I took the picture three times I couldn't ever catch it.

I always tell people that the very best hot dogs are at the baseball field and on the streets of New York! However, I do think Humphrey Bogart was more eloquent than I when he said, "A hot dog at the ball park is better than a steak at the Ritz!"

I don't follow baseball regularly, but I adore going to games! And just because I love springtime how pretty are these flowers that were in the park outside the stadium?

and just for kicks some random views of Houston!

Love the photos! Looks like you had a lot of fun.

BTW - I totally agree with you about the hot dogs. The ball park is the ONLY place I ever eat hot dogs!

Looks like you two had a great time! The wildflowers are beautiful, and you're right...the best hot dogs are at baseball games.

Have a great weekend!!

What a fabulous, fun trip! You guys look so cute! And I agree that a hotdog in a ballpark tastes way better than a steak in a fancy restaurant :-) It's the whole atmosphere thing. Glad you had such a great time!

He's such a cutie with the dimples and Elle, let him keep the Camo hat.
Love his hair!

Louisiana Iris' are my favorite, the purple ones!
