Texas in pictures part 1...

This past weekend we (Leo, Nicolas and I) went to visit my sister in Texas! My BFF and her hubby came along too. We had a great time hanging out, eating, and sight seeing Houston, TX. One morning we went to this great eclectic restaurant, The Bake Shoppe and Cafe, for a breakfast buffet. The pancakes were amazing, large, fluffy, and chocolate chip...yummo. The buffet was also awesome; bacon, eggs, potatoes, biscuits, grits, etc.

Here are some pics of the restaurant.

My restaurant was full of funky decorations. Every wall was full of unique art pieces. This owl was my favorite. And when I looked closer I saw what his eyes were framed with...Corona bottle caps! One of my go to beers on a hot summer day.
I also got drawn to this old mailbox. Nothing too interesting at first glance. But this old mailbox was used as art and recycled as a menu stand. I call it recycled art and I think that was the theme of the restuarant.

Delicious food, great service, great conversation, and great friends/family. I can not ask for more.

(not the best picture but it will do. sometimes it is not the quality but about the memories).

I have a few more Texas pics to share so more post to come.
