I've never been to San Antonio before, and CB has only been once or twice so we are definitely prepared to do the touristy things. Here are the spots I have written down for us to check out.

Mi Terra in Market Square
Like I said, I have never been there and have just jotted down a few ideas that I caught from articles I found on Pinterest. Help a sister out here! Where should we go? What should we do.
One thing that I DO know though is what I'm bringing along with me for the trip. Here are five things I have packed for our Romantic San Antonio Weekend!
1. A Bright Bold Red Lipstick
I'll admit that I'm pretty new to wearing lipstick. For years, a bold lip scared me off, but now I can't get enough of it. CB both loves and hates it when I wear lipstick. He gives me non-stop compliments, which is always nice to hear, but hates that he can't kiss me. I haven't quite figured out how to kiss him without getting red all over his face. If you have any tips, I'm all ears. My favorite lipsticks right now are Butter London: Lady Bird and Makeup Forever: Moulin Rouge
2. A Book To Listen to on the Drive
I have Jim Gaffigan's audio book Food: A Love Story as well as Aziz Ansari's audio book Modern Romance loaded on my iPhone and ready to go! I'm obsessed with listening to audio books, comedian's in particular, because they are actually the ones narrating their own story. It's just like listening to their standup. Via audiobook is how I found my love affair with Mindy Kaling.
3. A Sexy Top
Ok well, you got me. I don't own many "sexy" tops unless you count my Jason Witten Cowboys jersey -- which I'd totally like to count -- but something a little sexier than you normally wear would be nice on a romantic getaway for just the two of you. The striped off the shoulder top shown above is a new top I got from Forever 21 a couple of weeks ago for the occasion!
4. A Bathing Suit
I HATE BATHING SUITS AND I HATE BEING IN BATHING SUITS. You all know this. Surprisingly though, I'm not ashamed or embarrassed of my body around CB, he makes me feel beautiful. I don't mind being in a bathing suit in front of him, so I'm being brave and packing one. Besides, I hear our hotel has a killer pool and the weather forecast is calling for 78 and sunny!
5. Dove Dry Spray
This might be mind blowing information to you, but Texas is hot. WHOA. I know. I'll give you a moment to take that new information in. I actually already use Dove deodorant, and trust it in the Dallas heat, so when Dove invited me to collaborate and try their new Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant, I was on board. I'd never used anything other than a stick deodorant, so I was a little hesitant to try this latest beauty trend -a dry spray- for the first time. It was honestly great though, the Dove Dry Spray went on instantly dry and had no visible residue. Perfect for a full 48 hour weekend of odor and wetness protection in San Antonio! It's in my bag, packed and ready to go!
Be sure to follow along with us on our trip via Insta and Snapchat. I'm sure once I get that first marg in me I'll be snapping up a storm (per the usual). AND PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE leave me a comment with some suggestions on where to go in San Antonio! See you guys on Monday!
