Adventures in Texas: Part II

What a loooooooooooong day it was today.

Saw more, did more, walked more, spent more, ate more and a lot of things more than yesterday. Anne and I decided to make today, ‘girl day’ and we hung out all day by ourselves. We slept in – which was nice – then we left and had lunch in Fire Wheel at San Fransisco Oven… another sandwich place. It was very good and I finally remembered to order Sweet Tea… I love the south.

We then drove over to Up Town which was a very laid-back shopping district… or so we thought. It was so very the top pretentious. Really there was only one store we went into that was actually interesting. It was full of Indian art and decor. Very expensive… but it was cool. I saw a lot things I would like to buy if I were rich. Of course we also went to Starbucks. The coolest part was the trolley-ride that was free.

The best part of the day happened tonight when we went to Deep Ellum. Yes, yes… this is where the tattoo happenings took place. I will be honest with you… I was stinkin’ nervous and tad bit scared. But… I made it through. The worst part was the anticipation of waiting for the first touch of the needle. I was expecting the worst which is the advice I had been given. It turned out not to hurt as badly as I thought. I was glad. There were moments and places that it hurt SUPER bad, but overall it wasn’t terrible and I will probably get another one someday…

Here’s a play by play… nervous… to the finished product!
