Houston, We Have A Problem

We had a blast with family while we stayed in Houston over the holidays. While my family lives in the Katy area, John and I stayed at the cutest Airbnb apartment in Montrose and explored so many places I’ve never been, including THEE BEST BBQ that John and I have ever had at Midtown BBQ. TALK ABOUT BRISKET CITY! We also enjoyed the most DELISH burgers from the Burger Joint. I’ve lived in California for 9 years and I can say that burgers (and BBQ tbh) in Texas are WAY BETTER, there is no discussion – thanks!

Why stop at BBQ and burgers when you can stuff your face even more with TEX MEX?! The original Ninfa’s on Navigation did NOT disappoint. I swear every time I go to Texas I end up gaining 10 pounds from the heavy food and lack of exercise! #itsworthitthough #foodforever #nomnom #quesofordayzzz One of my favorite memories was of John getting his combo plate, which came with a crispy taco, and him saying “is this why you like Taco Bell so much? Because you grew up eating crispy tacos?” ROFL – Californians…. (Probably a good time to declare my deep love for Taco Bell as well) 😉

The Houston museum district is one of the top 3 of the country because they get exhibits that won’t reach the rest of the US, like the Degas exhibit we saw at the MFAH. I love how all of the museums are close together, scattered throughout the park among the abundant water fountains. (SRSLY thought there are like 10 water fountains within 4 blocks). The last time I brought John home a couple years ago, we actually saw an off-Broadway version of Best Little Whorehouse in Texas under the stars in the park at the museum district… ❤ memories!

Another thing we did was check out the HOUSTON SPACE CENTER because *ahem cough cough* JOHN WILL BE WORKING FOR NASA starting at the end of this month!! In the Bay Area location of course. MY BF IS A SCIENTIST Y’ALL! And since he had never been to the space center prior, we made a trip of it with my sisters and my youngest niece and nephew. But MAKE SURE you get the timed tickets online prior to your visit, it saves you HOURS upon hours of waiting for the tours. #impatientashell
