Texas Fun

As we all know, I’m not a big long recapper kind of person.  I hate writing long posts.  I hate reading long posts.  Everything about long posts is not for me and my short ass attention span.  So I thought I would break up my Thanksgiving posts into multiple posts.  I know that you obviously want to read about those.

First and foremost I know you guys want to know about the boy.  Actually first, it Texas was new to me which was really exciting (and warm).I love it down there..anyways about the boy. He is doing well and I obviously don’t talk about him much because well…he is 3000 miles away (due to my geographical knowledge I cannot verify that is accurate).  Plus how weird would it be if you googled yourself and came across my blog.  LOL.  (Though he has read my blog before and isn’t like I hide anything from him…my ability to keep secrets rivals that of a 3 year old)

That being said, I’ve been extremely cautious about what I post on the internet regarding relationships  but I do promise that I exist outside of lolz, coffee and monday waffle posts.  I will tell you guys though I had an amazing trip I’ve never been happier and that is that.  I don’t want to text overload so I’ll just explain photos.  That is more of my jive anyways.

We went on the River Walk in San Antonio..I highly recommend it.
oh yeah and took a photo with a water buffalo like no big deal…
saw some swell waterfalls
Decided a 60 ounce (yes 60 ounce) ceramic coffee mug was needed…because isn’t everything bigger in Texas?
Tim ate a frog. Erg frog legs. I was not bold enough to try it.
and went on an infamous 8 mile run all within a 1 mile radius.

So yes, lots of fun there.

Questions for you:

1.       Do you like to type long posts are multiple short posts?

2.       Are you more of a must see all the sights kind of person or just relax kind of person? 

I’m more of a relaxing person.  I don’t need to go to all the fancy amusement parks (roller coasters kind of make me sick) but shopping and relaxing is all I really need.

  1. I like your post and all the pics you used :). And yeah that 8 miler in a one mile radius is pretty cool too- at least you were running out there. Love the coffee mug… I wonder if you take it to a gas station that offers 99 cent refills if they will let you refill it for the same price as everyone else’s 24 oz mugs lol?

  2. I always try to keep my posts shorts. I don’t get the whole describe every detail or every mile in my marathon posts. My marathon post was like “I ran as fast and I could and it flipping hurt!” lol

    Hugemungo coffee cups are the best!!

  3. Love your pics! Looks like you’re having fun 🙂 I know I usually like writing just shortish posts lol sometimes I just forget what to write so I’m all.. here’s a picture.. enjoy :p

    Love huge mugs! They make the best oatmeal containers haha

  4. aww glad you had a great time! I’m very specific about who I post about and pictures too, so I completely get it!

    I like to keep posts pretty short..and I always love pictures and love looking at pictures on blogs!

  5. Looks like a blast! You guys are so cute and I’m glad you had fun! I like posts with lots of pictures… I don’t mind if they are long if they hold my attention. Love your 8 mile run, gotta do what you gotta do 🙂

  6. That run is hilarious! I don’t know how you had the mental strength for that bad boy. you must’ve looked crazy!

  7. Yep, I have been wondering about this boy 🙂 Glad you’re having such a good time. That run looks kind of horrendous but of course any 8 mile run also sounds glorious to me! I have no clue what kind of blog posts I like to write. Ones that make me happy, which is not a lot of words because grad school has sucked all my words out of me! Hope the rest of your jet setting is great Hollie!!

  8. Looks like you’re having a good time 🙂 Wow that buffalo is huge! Those horns! I’mone of those people who HAS TO SEE EVERYTHING when they go on holiday. I can’t sit still. Annoyingly so I guess hehe. I like long posts, but as long as there are pictures otherwise my mind drifts… 🙂

  9. Ha that run looks so funny. I have done the bob and weave in neighborhoods before but very time I see my apt I’m like hmm should I continue or go home…. Glad you had such a good time!!!!

  10. Texas is somewhere I’ve always wanted to visit! You and your boy are cute 🙂 I am definitely more of a relaxing kind of person on vacation. That’s why my favorite spots always include beaches.

  11. Oh dear you must HATE my blog then, I ramble, I can never get it all out in a few sentences, so hopeless. One day may be, but I also like reading interesting stories and with pics. I like your blog for that reason, always interesting and so many times I can relate to what you’ve written. Well I am now lucky that I follow you on twitter yaya and saw your epic mug etc it’s sooo awesome, just what I NEED haha… Hope you have an awesome wkend. 🙂

    1. Quite the contrary, your blog is one of my favorites to read. There are some bloggers with posts that I can’t get through after 500 words but yours sucks me in LOL.

      1. Whoooa I feel special! 🙂 I’m the same with yours, you’re addictive hahaha wait that sounded better in my head oh well baha… Hope you’re having an epic wkend. Saturday is almost over here boowhooo… :-/

  12. I too have the attention span of a hybrid toddler-goldfish, so I always appreciate your short but to the point posts!

    So glad you’re finally in Texas and having a blast. That looks like my kind of coffee mug!


  13. Aw, cute pictures, Hollie–looks like a great time! I went to Texas once during my collegiate basketball days, and I remember it being strangely warm for January. No complaints, of course. 😉

  14. Love this post, Hollie, and I’m soooo glad you’ve never been happier!! I get really long winded so my posts always err on the long side but I love reading posts of all lengths. Even the ones that have no words, just pictures! I have a very dear friend in San Antonio (she ran the MCM with me) and I may or may not have agreed to run the Rock n Roll San Antonio full next year. Whoops. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!! Keep floating on Cloud 9!

  15. looks like a blast! I heard Texas has the best weather (and everything is bigger in texas haha) I like to see a few things on vacation, but for the most part would like to sit my booty on the beach and relax

  16. Ahhh the mysterious boy. Can I just say that I have pretty much the same mentality when it comes to talking about that kind of stuff on my blog? I recently just met someone and hinted on the blog that I started a new relationship, but talking about it in more detail has proven difficult. Glad you had a good time in Texas 🙂

  17. Yeah… shorts posts are my favorite, so thank you haha! I’m so happy for you Hollie! I remember a certain boy (who I won’t name) from way back in the beginning of our blogging days and let me just say… your new boy is much cuter ;). I’m so glad you enjoyed Texas! Yay for warmness and sun and fun <3

  18. I hateeee reading long posts, so I always keep mine short in hopes that people will be able to struggle though. Even if it’s a longer post, I keep the words minimal and the pictures long. My current post is much longer than I like, but owell! I’m glad you had a good time with the boy!

  19. Sounds like your having a great time in Texas my love. Questions though:: What causes the distance.. is the boy in the military? & I see he has a Chambersburg Football shirt on. Would that be Chambersburg, PA?? Ha Ha, sorry for the questions!

    1. Yep to both your questions. 😉 He is in the airforce and he went to Chambersburg. Though no football for him just running and skiing. We met through running believe it or not LOL.

      1. Oh okay, how often do you see him? Since Joshua was in the military, I know exactly how hard long distance relationship can be.

        && how cool that he went to Chambersburg. That’s only about 40 minutes or so from where I grew up.

  20. Aw I’m so happy to see that you had an amazing time with your boy! Glad you got to enjoy some warm weather as well. And 8 miles in a one mile radius?? Crazy but kind of cool 🙂
