Very, VERY early on Friday, the 13th of January, we set out on for our vacation!
After about a 8-9 hour drive, we arrived at our hotel, the Aloft by W, in Houston, TX. (this photo is a night shot, from my cellphone.)
There was a slight bit of drama, as we had called ahead to ask about checking in early, and were told it would be fine. It wasn’t. There weren’t any rooms available. BUT they did have one available within the hour, so it turned out ok. The room was great, and in a great location (very close to the Galleria mall, just a very short walk away!)
While in Houston, we:
Ate at the Cheesecake Factory (for the first time)
Visited the Water Wall
Shopped (window) at the Galleria
Jumped up and Down
Ate at the Breakfast Klub
Ate at Pappadeaux (We actually walked to Pappadeaux from the hotel, thinking it was closer than it was. It was only 1 mile, but in the cold, and bundled up in a heavy coat, so…yeah. But, on the way back, I had downed a rather large drink, so I’m pretty sure it was the fastest mile ever, lol!)
Checked out the View
We had an absolute blast in Houston!
