Ending Our Vacation

Yesterday was the perfect way to close out our vacation here in San Antonio, Texas! My mom, sister, and I started the day off with a sushi lunch at Osaka.

I ordered a California roll and the Magic Mountain roll for lunch but was only able to finish about half of it. It was some tasty and oh so filling sushi.

After sushi we headed to a nail salon for pedicures.

China Glaze Ruby Slippers

It wasn’t the best pedicure I’ve ever gotten, but I loved this mint mud mask they used midway.  Much better than the salt scrub.


I do love the color I picked though. It looks like Dorothy’s Ruby Red Slippers.


After dinner with my family, aka diving into a serving of my Mom’s famous lasagna, Neal and I headed down to the San Antonio Riverwalk with Stephanie and Sebastian.


The Riverwalk is amazing any time of year, but it’s magical during the holidays.


The trees lining the Riverwalk are filled with colorful lights which reflect on the river.  It’s just beautiful.

Neal has been here a few times, but neither of us can get enough of it, it’s just a great place to be.  Next time we visit San Antonio I think we need to get a hotel room on the river for at least a night.

We ended the night with skinny vanilla steamers at Starbucks with friends.  It was truly the best way to close out our vacation.

Now I am beyond thankful for the chance to see my family over the past week and a half but I am pretty excited to get home.

I am ready to go grocery shopping, to eat my weight in fresh produce, to workout at the gym, to sleep in my bed, and to get back into a routine.  I need routine.

Neal and I are so ready to get back to eating healthy and to kick off 2013 in DC.

How has 2013 been for you so far?

    2013 has been awesome so far! I completely agree with you about needing a routine. After being away from home from December 21st-January 1st, I was more than ready to start cooking and eating healthy and get back to my fitness routine!

    Oh my gosh, I always get so jealous when i see bloggers post pictures of their sushi, haha. It’s my FAVORITE thing ever! But I’m actually going out with my boyfriend to get some tonight, so I don’t feel too bad ;) I love that color on your toes! I got red the last time I got a pedi, too, but it’s definitely time to go again.

    Sushi and pedicure sound like the best way to end a vacation!! Hopefully it won’t be too cold for you back in DC.

    2013 has started out wonderfully! Teh cleanse and detox are going well, although I really miss meat!! Only 2.5 weeks left though.

    I love your nail polish color, it’s perfect for the holidays and the season! I went to San Antonio yearsss ago when my dad was working down there and I loved the River Walk [and Sea World haha]! I’ll never forget stopping in a little shop along the side and seeing a lollipop that had an insect inside of it! At the time I thought it was beyond cool :P
