Houston: Part 4 ...We're not done yet

Wednesday we went back to the 'hood.
I LOVE our old neighborhood.
It's Wisteria Lane meets FRIENDS.

It's got this idealistic feel to it....cute houses with front porches, and for 6 months out of the year, you can't walk 10 feet without seeing someone outside. The other 6 months, you better have already made your friends because everyone is hiding out inside or at the pool.

We were always having playdates, happy hours (sometimes at the same time)
girls' nights out, hurricane parties (power outages are a lot more fun with cool neighbors with generators), and plenty of gossip sessions on driveways.

I called up Trina to see if she & Margeaux were up for a last minute playdate.
Of course she was game.

Delaisha and Jackson came too, so it was like old times.....donuts and all.

Then I took Addison up to her old school so she could say hi to her teachers and friends.

It was so fun watching them all get excited and have fun playing together.

I am so ready for her to start back up in the fall.
And not just for the education.
I'm sure she's excited too.

Then to finish the day off, we had Cottage Green dinner at Sakekawa.
It was the last restaurant I needed to check off my list.

Girl nights are the best!!
Tree (round 2, just substituted sushi and wine for the donuts and coffee)

Lacey & I
I love how blogging allows you to keep up with everyone.
Lacey and I actually know each other better now than when we lived in the same neighborhood. I love this girl!

Lesley and I
my old next door neighbor! There were many conversations held from each others back porch in the day.

One more Houston post to come.....

Love all the pictures from your trip. Isn't it funny how quickly you forget how hot it is?!?! How many times did you eat at Chuy's? :)
