Uberjam and I took a little trip this weekend for our anniversary (number 6, thank you very much). We went up to Horseshoe Bay, where they've recently opened a resort. We stayed at the Marriott, and had us a good ol' time.

When we arrived, we were told that our room had been upgraded. Significantly. "It's a very nice room," said the concierge, in a way that almost creeped me out. "That's no extra charge."

Nice room? The Stephen F. Austin Presidential Suite turned out to be bigger than our freakin' house! Well, not quite, but there was a kitchen, a conference room, two (2) bathrooms, a huge patio ... you get the point. Here's a shot of the living room:

We felt more than a little silly in there - I mean, it really could have held a family of 6, or an entire conference on neurophonology. But who are we to look a gift horse in the mouth? Considering the fact that we'll almost definitely never get to stay there again, we decided to enjoy it for what it was worth.

Which mainly consisted in sitting on the patio and eating fruit. And taking closeup pictures of the rug. Three cheers for simple pleasures.

Anyway, it was a great way to wind down and spend some time together. The next day we hit up the Bluebonnet Cafe for some lunch, and then spent the balance of the afternoon at Hamilton Pool.

Pretty rockin' anniversary, but not as rockin' as the next 6 years are gonna be.
