A Great Day in Waco, Y’all!

O.k., o.k. let me get the apologies out of the way….I came up with this blog, and then low and behold I never blog! How much sense does that make? Well, if you work full time, have a two year old, are pregnant, and have a husband for a baseball coach, it makes perfect sense. I think about blogging all that time, does that count? Yeah, not so much huh? I will try to do better until I have our new baby girl, and then I’ll probably be on another hiatus. Something else taking up my time (and I’m thankful for it) is my writing for a wonderful publication called TexasLIVE. Issues are sold all around Texas in Barnes & Noble, HEB, etc. Look for the April-May issue and you’ll see my first 2 articles!!! (Arte en Austin and an intro to The Apron Chronicles)

On to Waco…Waco, to most, is not the kind of place you would think is missed after you’ve moved on to another city/state/country/whatever, but it’s true, people actually miss it when they’re gone. One of my dear friends moved to Houston after living in Waco for 5-6 years, and she misses Waco a great deal. Well, I decided to surprise her the Sunday my spring break started and kidnap her for a couple of wild and crazy days in Waco. O.k. so it wasn’t that wild and crazy, but it was definitely filled with Waco-ish delight! One of her requests was to eat at Schmaltz’s Sandwich Shop. There are 2 locations in Waco, one on 5th and one on Valley Mills. And it was delish! They are famous for their bread, and they didn’t disapoint. There’s nothing like a good turkey and swiss sandwich with melty, gooey cheese after you’ve spent a couple of hours shopping at Spice Village.

We moved on to Plotz’s used books after that and spent another hour camped out on the floor of the children’s section. We both have kiddos and both love buying books for them.   The selection is good and so are the prices. I picked up the 3rd Nancy Drew, 3 of the Ramona books by Beverly Cleary and Dr. Suess’s Foot Book for a measly $8!! It was a great day in Waco, y’all!

    Check out Pinwheel Kids just down the way from Schmaltz’s and Plotz. There’s a cool treehouse inside for the kids to play on while mom shops. And they have all kinds of cool events for kids and moms every week!
