As I carefully and expertly ordered my Venti Soy iced quad shot latte this morning at a classy truck stop Starbucks in hip hoppin Kansas, I concluded that Southerners are coffee impaired. I mean seriously people Starbucks sends you to like coffee university and you can't figure out my order?? I am officially a pacific northwesterner if I can lean over the counter and instruct the "barista" what to push on the register to get my order accurate. Stick with what your good at southern friends: margaritas! But I am extremely grateful for my caffination this fine big sky morning.
We are headed to Houston today via Wichita, Oklahoma City, and Dallas. As an unscheduled adventure Monica is dropping me in Dallas for the night and I'm gonna meet her back in Houston Saturday for her mom's Cuban black beans and a final farewell before Stef and I fly back to Seattle Sunday.
Monica and I have planned this trip for months and months and it's funny how we've ended up winging the whole adventure. Nothing and I mean nothing has gone as planned. But there have been little triumphs along the way. Watching Reba get better is the number one victory! Finally finding soy protein at the Whole Foods in Ft Collins was a close second. I teared up and had to be dragged kicking and screaming from their incredible deli. Walking through a McDonald's somewhere in Kansas packed with a bus load of some of the hottest Latino men I've ever seen was quite exciting and staying up till 3 AM talking boys with Stef was entertaining as well!
See yall in Dallas!
Reba - Ruff! We got in van again this morning and started driving. I mean, I ruff ruff love car rides but I think my humans are taking that way too serious. We keep staying in new bedrooms then driving. Wish HAn and Leia was here cause they are not going to believe this!!! Waggy Ruff!!!! Re with love.See the trip: Trek to Texas
Mo'nica - Well, last night in Kansas, as I was getting in my car I heard my cell ring... As I went to answer it I realized I was hearing real crickets! That and the vast, never ending blue sky we enjoyed earlier in the day brings a tear to my eyes and relief in my heart that I am getting closer to the the place I love. Home. I am so happy.See the trip: Trek to Texas
