Travel Diaries: the many decisions of a girl's trip

So, I have some girlfriends and we like to eat. We like to eat, gossip, shop, and laugh. But above all of the eating, gossiping, shopping, and laughing, we like to travel together. 

Each one of us has a bit of wanderlust and travel bug in us at one time or another, and while we're usually dreaming up of going somewhere like this...

(our honeymoon on Kauai)

...we've somehow ended up staying in the great state of Texas. There's a LOT I can say about Texas though, and we haven't even covered half of it! We've been to Austin, Fort Worth, Dallas, Houston, and Fredericksburg (sometimes more than once) together and no matter the circumstances, it's always a blast. 

Naturally, when I told them I was pregnant about a month ago, they insisted we do a babymoon. No, Mark's not coming, it's just a girl's trip! As usual, we spoke about grand vacations in Colorado or Utah, but after we took a breather and looked at our schedules, we realized another Texas trip was the most realistic.

I have to say, though, we are all pretty excited about this one! We are pampering ourselves with a trip to the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa, in (you guessed it) San Antonio. Growing up in Texas, San Antonio was a must-see when you were about 12 but then after that, you remembered the Alamo just fine and the city is usually overshadowed by the much "cooler" and more diverse city of Austin, just an hour north. When I proposed this hotel to my friends, one goes "San Antonio, really?" but once I sent her the link, she changed her tune and said it looked REALLY nice. 

Situated north of the city, we'll be on this expansive resort with the best looking pools I've ever seen in Texas. Y'all, they have an adult pool! This 6 month prego mama is going to be ALL about that! Plus, that lazy river is going compliment our lazy bodies pretty well all weekend!

Part of staying in the resort means that we want to take advantage of all of the amenities. When we were booking at about 9am the other day, we were all drooling over the menus at the multiple restaurants. We are DEFINITELY staying on site for dinner!

We are all SO excited for this girl's trip to catch up, relax, and get in some quality girl time in this beautiful area of Texas. We wouldn't have it any other way!
