|The brisket at The Salt Lick was my favorite!|
We spent most of the weekend in Killeen, having fun with EH and the current family dogs... The family has a genius Springer spaniel, adorable basset hound, mutt rescue from Iraq, and a foster. JH has fostered dozens of dogs over the past couple of years, placing them in forever homes. It's so fun to see little EH play and roll around with the dogs, who are so good with her! We even gave her a bubble bath for the first time.
JH and I took a trip to Round Rock (just north of Austin) to shop at the outlet malls (I bought some super-fun outfits for EH!) and to eat at The Salt Lick BBQ, part of my Before I'm 30 bucket list! I'd seen it on the Travel Channel and wanted to try it ever since. It was DELICIOUS. I even bought some of the BBQ sauce and dry rubs to take home with me. We also hit up another local (and Travel Channel) foodie spot, Round Rock Donuts, which was amazing. Cheaper and more delicious than a chain donut store, it was one of the best donuts I have ever had. (I also had an apple fritter, one of my favorite treats!)
But really the weekend was about spending time with JH; we hadn't seen each other in years, and it was so good to spend that one-on-one time together. We talked endlessly like we'd never been apart; JH calls me weekly, so we're always catching up.
I had a great time, ate some delicious food, and even got a little shopping in. But the best part of all was holding my little niece! I can't wait to watch how EH grows!
