There’s nothing quite like Texas on a Saturday night
It’s honky tonkin’ heaven underneath that lone star sky
These lyrics come from a Willie Nelson song from 2001, but a better song could not have been written for the Saturday night that was 12-29-12!! Curious as to what happened that Saturday night? Of course you are!
First let me back up to the beginning! Friday, December 28th Jason, Daniel and I flew into Dallas/Fort Worth Airport to meet my other brother Robert, his girlfriend Gloria and her sister Kitra. They graciously picked us up from the airport and took us back to our hotel where we got ready to head out to an amazing Brazilian Steakhouse dinner with the Airforce Academy football managers. Thanks to Rob and Dan S. for inviting us along!
The food was absolutely amazing! If you have never been to a Brazilian steakhouse, you don’t know what you are missing! The one good thing is I was not in a diet mode at the time, which allowed me to eat all I wanted without feeling guilty.
Even better than the food though was the company! These 6 people are some awesome people, if I do say so myself!
My handsome husband! I am so blessed to be married to such an incredible man!
Two beautiful sisters!
The following day, we woke up early, got ready and headed to the Armed Forces Bowl at TCU stadium where the AFA Falcons were taking on the Rice Owls!
We got really lucky in that Saturday proved to be the prettiest day we were there. The temps were in the low 50s with a bright sunny sky! As we got there we were treated to a flyover of 4 F-16s! I have to come to realize that my favorite part of AFA football games are the amazing flyovers I have gotten to witness!! We were treated to another flyover at halftime that consisted of a Cobra and a Huey! They flew around the stadium several times before flying off — what an incredible experience!
Along with the flyovers, the game was a time to hang out with the awesome 6!
Did I mention how awesome my husband is? He was such a good sport, that he even wore some Airforce gear for the game! He is still a proud Marine, but chose to be a supportive brother-in-law! I love you Jason!
Unfortunately, the wrong team won the bowl game, but a great time was still had by all! After the bowl game, we went back to grab some lunch a nap before the Randy Rodgers band concert at Billy Bob’s later that night.
Due to some awesome connections through Dan S., we even got to go to the meet in greet with the Randy Rodgers band — a definite cool experience.
So you may still be wondering what I was alluding to at the beginning of my post of “Texas on a Saturday Night.” Well the biggest part of 12-29-12 is my brother Robert proposed to his long-term girlfriend and she said YES!!
Rob and Gloria had actually met at Billy Bob’s over 2 years ago, so he decided to propose in the very spot where he had asked her to dance over 2 years ago. He had the whole thing planned and rehearsed! It was such a neat incredible experience to get to be there when my brother proposed! The best part is that I get to have a sister out of this! She is one amazing young lady, and I am so lucky to get to claim her as part of my family now!
So there you have it, Texas on a Saturday night in a Honky Tonk bar proved to be a very special night!
Well there’s nothing quite like Texas on a Saturday night
Nothin’ can compare to it no matter how you try
