Weekend Recap: Corpus Christi

 Today I am doing a little recap on our weekend in Corpus Christi. For those that don’t know, Corpus is home to most of my husband’s family, so we try to get there fairly often, but with other trips, we hadn’t been in awhile. Chris’ family was hosting a surprise birthday party for his aunt on Sunday that we didn’t want to miss, and we took Taylor down for a dance clinic at her soon to be college Texas A&M Corpus Christi! 

Coming from Dallas, Waco is on the way, which means a stop at the Silos is absolutely mandatory. It was my third or forth time to the Silos, but my first time back since the bakery opened! We got a few cupcakes and this amazing cookie is called "The Silo Cookie"'s the best cookie I've ever had. No kidding! We also hit the Alabama Sweet Tea truck before getting back on the road!

We got in to town late Friday night, but couldn't check in to the hotel without a stop at Jalisco's first. This is my favorite place in town. If you're not familiar with the area, there are several of these all around town. Some are better than others but I've never eaten at one that wasn't great. You just can't get this kind of food in Fort Worth. I would have eaten here for every meal if I could have! 

 Saturday morning Taylor had a dance clinic at the college, so we decided we'd hit the gym! Gold's Gym Corpus was so kind and let us come try out their gym free of charge. It was a great gym and we will definitely be back next time we're in town.
 We spent Saturday afternoon at the beach in Port Aransas. Port A has the best beach area around, in my opinion. It was a windy afternoon, but we had fun having a little beach photoshoot!  
 Sunday we had the best lunch at Grub Burger Bar. The burgers were amazing, and this milkshake (the Dirty Kitchen Sink) was so good, and alcoholic! 
We also spent some time at North Beach, and Fajitaville. It's a super fun spot to hang out and have a few drinks! I can't vouch for the food because we didn't eat here, but the drinks and music were good. They also have giant Jenga, which is my favorite!!
We finished the weekend off celebrating this amazing human, Chris' aunt. We had so much fun surprising her, and seeing all of the family! It's always so great to see them all, and this was definitely the highlight of the trip for me.

It was a quick trip, but we packed a ton into a short weekend, and it was a blast! Next up, Florida in 4 days! I'll be recapping that trip as well in the coming weeks!

Have you been to Corpus Christi!?
Where is your favorite beach town!?
