GALVESTON: CHILLY VALENTINE’S DAY EDITION
The boyfriend and I went to Galveston last Saturday as an early valentine’s celebration.
We ate lunch at a Greek restaurant by the seawall and then went to the west side of the island to do some exploring.
IT WAS SO COLD. Like 50s.
Okay maybe that’s not so cold, but… I was totally inappropriately dressed because the day before it was in the 70s and I didn’t anticipate the wind chill. Lessons learned.
I brought my new camera and snapped some photos. It was gray for most of the day though. One might say MOODY. HAHAHA. Historical Houston puns are universal humor right?
We went to the Pleasure Pier to ride the Ferris wheel (quite possibly world’s shortest ride) and it was pretty crowded for February. There was a like a 20 minute line! Total injustice.
SO apparently this was more of a ‘gondola’ wheel. It turns out that Paul gets motion sick like my mom and even the Ferris wheel was a bit much for him. Poor baby. But seriously- who am I supposed to ride crazy roller coasters with now?? Dilemma.
Look at that cutie! It was way bright and windy.
This is basically the only shot Paul took with my eyes open. Should have left the sunglasses on! D’oh! Also look at my thin cardigan. Totally unprepared despite having a giant tote bag full of junk.
We also went to the Strand and got some chocolates from a candy shop! We watched a guy in scrubs order at least a hundred dollars worth of chocolate. He was ordering from the time we walked in, while we sat down and ate some fudge and was still ordering when we left. DANG!
The Strand area was mostly off-season touristy shops though because it’s right by the cruise ship terminal. ALL of them were also selling alcohol. It was sort of weird how many had a sketch margarita machine and a cooler of beer.
For dinner we had burgers at the Spot (a blackbean veggie burger for me) which is back over on the seawall. Then we got drinks at Sideyard which is on the same property. It was back yard themed and had two person hammock swings. Very cute.
So you know it’s good to be positive and all that except I have one small ranty rant that I need to get out of my system and then I will be totally ~positive vibes only~ and chill and totes yoga zen. And yes I know this is a bar, but I guess I just don’t ever go to places that let you smoke indoors ever? It’s not like it’s the 80s and that’s a thing anymore. Okay go rant-time:
SINCE WHEN IS IT OKAY TO DO THAT INDOORS? GO OUTSIDE BECAUSE NO ONE ELSE WANTS TO BREATHE YOUR PEACH FLAVORED NICOTINE. YOU DON’T LOOK COOL. YOU LOOK LIKE A SAGGY, HAGGY HUMAN TRASHBAG.
TOTES CHILL NOW. Promise.
Did you do anything fun for Valentine’s weekend? Did you get some pretty flowers from your boo?
Last year, I demanded mint plants via email. Kidding, but sometimes boys need things spelled out for them. Otherwise you end up buying your own chocolates and flowers and crying in your bubble bath. Not that anything like that has ever happened to me ever..
Hope you had fun this weekend! Comment down below if you want to humblebrag your Valentine’s day! Just kidding! Except not really.
