We’ve been a little quiet and haven’t been so adventurous lately and I figured I should finally update as to why! At the end of September I had been super nauseous, so on October 1st I had Dave run to the store to get me a pregnancy test, and some ginger ale and Altoids (those things save my life!). The next morning I took the test, thinking it would certainly be negative, but it turned positive instantly! I was so shocked! It was so hard waiting for Dave to come home from work to tell him the exciting news! I put the test in a cake pan with tin foil over it, and when he got home from work I told him I had made him a surprise. He said he definitely wasn’t expecting it and was really surprised!
Since I wasn’t quite sure how far along I was since my cycles are a bit irregular, and since I have had a few miscarriages in the past, I made an appointment with my OB right away and was able to go in on the 8th. They were thinking that I may be around 6 or 7 weeks based on my cycle, but they could only see the gestational sac and the yolk sac, but no baby yet. It was really hard to not know for sure if it was going to be a viable pregnancy or not and just having to wait for the next appointment.
On November 1st we forced ourselves out the house to celebrate Dia de los Muertos at my favorite place, the Historic Pearl! We’ve always missed the celebrations in previous years, so I was so glad to join in the festivities this year! I love the rich Hispanic culture in San Antonio so much! It was honestly magical! Celebrations only lasted two days, but put this on your calendar for next year! Don’t miss this magical event, SA friends!!
Been thinking I need to write an updated post for my top recommendations for what to eat in San Antonio so here we are! I hope you enjoy this in-depth look at all the amazing food San Antonio has to offer! Please feel free to share with any family and friends who live in or have plans to visit San Antonio! Places marked with a * are my absolute top recommendations but you really can’t go wrong with these places!
One weekend we decided to take a random drive out into the Hill Country. We stopped for a quick bite to eat in this cute little cafe. We just got a few baked goods to go but I can’t wait to come again and dine in!
And then we continued our drive out to Ingram, Texas, the home of Stonehenge II! Such a rather odd and random sight to see, but fun to check out!
September was such a fun final month of the summer. We enjoyed lots of trips to the lake, soaking up every last bit of sun!
