The Pub McKinney

The Pub McKinney was the first restaurant/bar we ventured out to visit. It is located in Historic Downtown McKinney. The venue offers a great atmosphere, plenty of seating, pool tables & games, full bar (specializing in Whiskey), craft beer and good food. There was a great outdoor seating area, it was cold the night we were there but we both commented it was a great space. I can’t wait to go back in some nicer weather.

 

We visited for an evening out for drinks and appetizers. The service was great, drinks good and the food was yummy. It was a great first stop in the area to see a new place and explore. This will definitely be one of the stops we take visitors and head to for a date night. Are you ready to go with us?

I had such a great experience here. I loved the variety in the class and that no two are the same, your body gets hit in all areas while keeping your muscles guessing. The energetic music, challenging moves and calming atmosphere offer a great experience for anyone at any level. You can advance your workout by using higher rated bands, weights and lower just another inch into the position. These classes will let you know you had muscles you hadn’t met before.

Vacation

We just got back from a vacation. It is rare for us to take a week together, we get short periods of time but with our jobs it’s hard to coordinate. Plus you know….life. A lot of other things are going on in our lives but we still mad it happen. It was great too, we got to spend time away and for 4 days I had no service and it was THE BEST! I totally recommend it. I missed nothing.

We went to Hot Springs, AR, Nashville, TN and Byrdstown, TN/Dale Hallow Lake. My family has been going to the lake since before I was born. My dad went with his family, then took my mom, then us and now we continued the tradition and now shared it with my niece. Being on the lake are some of the best memories from growing up, it is my favorite place. We spend our days on the water and evenings eating and talking but mostly laughing about something.

I stayed active with water sports, chasing my niece, walking and so much more. I used to love to just lay around on vacations but now I enjoy getting up early having coffee and getting things going. I know not everyone is like that! I love to see all the sights and being a “tourist” so yes in Nashville I was just that. We went to the Country Music Hall of Fame, The Grand Ole Opry, Ryman Auditorium and walked all over down town. It was so fun.

Hot Springs was beautiful, it was just a one night stop but it was gorgeous and I would definitely go back. We had a great dinner at a cute little brewery on the hill and a morning on the golf course.

Veterans Plaza

One of my favorite things to do is walk through different parks or areas of town to explore. Not only is this a great way to stay active but I get to see new places. Veterans Plaza is located in the heart of Boerne off Main Street and is a beautiful place to take some time and appreciate what is around you but also the sacrifice many men and women have made for the lives we have today.

As you walk up the main entrance you will see the names of so many local people who have served in all branches of service. If you are from here I am sure you can find a name you recognize or are related to. As you come up to the center you will read some beautiful stories of brilliance, heart, strength and selflessness.

I grabbed some lunch and sat on a bench in the shade and enjoyed some me time. There is plenty of room for pets and family to enjoy some time outside together or even a great outdoor workout. Many of you have driven by and never stopped. I really recommend taking a moment to walk to the center and read the stories of some amazing people from right here in our community.

San Antonio Baseball

My husband and I have always loved going to baseball games together. He is Cardinals fan and I am a Reds fan, the rivalry is the best. We have gone to several games together over the years and enjoy sports in general. We recently went to the San Antonio Missions baseball game and had a blast. If you are local and haven’t gone you really should and take the entire family.

 

The stadium has easy parking, clean and tons of food to pick from. The tickets are super affordable and the atmosphere & fans are great. It happened to rain the entire time we were there but we still had a great time. Everything is affordable from tickets, drinks, food and even the merchandise. We had great seats but from looking around it appeared all seats would give you a great view of the game.

The website is very easy to navigate to see the schedule and get tickets. It shows all the promotions and other fun stuff going on as well.

Head out for a fun day or night out!

Sister Creek Vineyards

Saturday we headed north to check out Sister Creek Vineyards. I have heard great things so we wanted to see what it was all about. It was a quick drive from our house full of beautiful hill country scenery.

We started with the self guided tour that shows the different equipment they use and many of the barrels the wine is aging in. After the self guided tour of the 5 rooms we sat down for the tasting. We did the 8 glasses allowing us to try all the wine, or can can do a 4 glass tasting as well. (The 8 is $12.95 and the 4 is $9.95.) We enjoyed many of the wines but are fans of the whites over red. Our favorite was the Muscat Reserve and we left with 2 bottles for our house, come over and have a glass with us. :)The staff is wonderful and very knowledgeable, we had a great time with our tasting specialist and he was full of fun knowledge.

They have a wine club you can join as well with no strings attached. Those are the kinds of clubs we like for sure.

We had a great time and defiantly recommend a trip out for yourself to check them out and try the wines.
