Cuero, Tx…

Texax, oh how I miss Texas already! I think I’m gonna have to take up drinking to cope with the loss. Man, my life is shaping up to be an old country song really quick. Well if blogging doesn’t work out I can always take up writing country songs.

We were in the little town of Cuero for about 2 months. It’s not an extremely large town but it was a decent size. It has a tiny little Walmart. Surprisingly it’s a better Walmart than most of the larger ones I’ve been to. It has an HEB… did anyone else hear the angels when I said that?… HEB…yep I heard them again. There is a Mexican restaurant on every dang corner but I never found one that even came close to Los Cocos Sports Grille They had a wonderful burger place called Monster Burger. It has great decor and a great burger.

There was a fancy park, Logan sure thought it was awesome. Park, Playground, community garden, pool, splash pad, golf course, and ponds. The RV park where we were was also wonderful, grassy (always trimmed), spacious, picnic tables, small, and out in the country. Spacious Country RV.  Downtown Cuero had a few downtown shops. Wagner Hardware has a cute shop above it. So don’t miss out on that.

 

 

I loved the historic homes, but my favorite thing about Cuero is the location, it was close enough to everything, We went to Austin, Corpus Christi, San Antonio, Gonzales, Mustang Island, and Victoria.

I completely fell in love with Texas while we were there. The wildflowers, the unlimited amount of stuff to do, the fact that they put roads around the beautiful trees, and the Spanish moss that hangs from them, the 80 miles an hour speed limit, the history,  and the fact at people are super proud.

We’re moving…

We just found out that we are finally leaving Duncan. I couldn’t be happier we been here for too long. I just about tried every food place, I can try and shopped everywhere, I can shop.

My husband is not so happy about he move. He would rather stay close to his race car. It’s so far away from our cabin (11hrs) and where both sets of our parents (8hrs). It’s further than we’ve ever been from home, but it’s not for very long.

I am excited to be going someplace new. I’m ready for a change as I said before I’m not good at settling in one spot, I get a weird anxious like feeling and I start planning random trips and all I wanna do is go go go! I was planning a trip to Nashville. (Oh believe me we are still going) It’s just going to have to get pushed back a few months.

So we’re headed to Cuero, Texas tomorrow. (It’s in south Tx, close to San Antonio) I’m excited it’s only an hour or so to the beach and there is tons to do all around! Do you have any ideas for us? We’re only going to be there for about 2 months and Dillon even has the weekends off so I need lots of ideas. He’s not good at setting around the camper!

I’d love to have feed back. We need tons of new sights to see, new food to try, and new things to do!

Small Town Oklahoma [Locust Grove & Salina]…

kissI would have to say if I have ever missed an RV Park it would be the one nestled between Locust Grove and Salina here in Oklahoma. Lakesides Terrace Loop. Yea yea, I may be a little sentimental about it. Being as that Is where Dillon and I first met, and also where we had our last first kiss. 

[That is not our first kiss but it is in the same spot]

20151024_184607        Any-who, sorry for the sappy moment! But It was a great RV park by the lake. We stayed on the other side of the road tho which was very secluded, shady, and quite. It backed up to a wooded area. The lots weren’t super huge but the owner tried to space us all out a bit and since it was mostly the crew we are all pretty used to living close anyways. The owner was really laid back, and he was great with the upkeep! 

As far as the towns around, I’ll start with Locust Grove, Oklahoma. [Population 1,404] It’s the first town we came through, and it’s a little bigger! Locust Grove has a Neighborhood Market, (which is newish it went in while we were there, thank goodness!) Dollar General,  Harps, Sonic, Dollar Tree, Mazzios, and a few other places I can’t think of at this moment. [I’ve been to a lot of places give me a break] It has a Very nice Best Western. (We stayed in it a few times, you’ll understand shortly) There is a Mexican restaurant, La Mansion, we ate there once wasn’t a huge fan. (I’ll tell you a better one, give me a few minutes) The Country Cottage was good, it’s a buffet style restaurant. Good home cooked meals. On Saturday and Sunday, they also do a breakfast buffet. The laundromat in Locust is a place I could never miss. Turner’s Laundry, that place needs a name like Root Canal or Menstrual Cramps. Yea Y’all, it’s that awful. It was clean, it had new washers, and they all worked. It wasn’t the laundromat its self, was the people who run it. They watch everything you do, so don’t breath wrong, don’t even try to take their baskets outside even if you have a broken arm [I know from experience] 

Ok, I’m going to reign my self in here because I could go on and on about how awful those old women are. But consider yourself fair warned.

IMG_0370I’m moving on to Salina, Oklahoma. [Population 1,384] Oh man where to start, it’s a little town with big heart. It has a Harps, Dollar General, and I think that there is a laundromat there now. It has the best Mexican Restaurant I’ve ever eaten at, and the owner, Hector is great. Los Coco’s, OMG if you ever go there get the combo Fajita Chimichangas, and try their Charo Beans, oh and I also like the Pollo Cameron. [Ok I’m officially hungry now! Sorry, talking about food makes me excited!]                 Here is one of our many family get-togethers At Los Coco’s →

 They have two small (Mom & Pop) DQ type burger/ice cream places. Dairy Deal, and Pig-N-Out, we have gotten ice cream from Pig-N-Out a few times because they are open later that Dairy Deal. And then there is

… (drum roll please)…

Salina Highbanks Speedway, and the Finishline Restaurant! [Now do you get it, we still go to Salina a lot] The owners are friends of the family now, good people! The restaurant is good, overlooks the racetrack, sweet waitress in there too! (Best steak I’ve ever at a restaurant) The racetrack is very well managed lots of fun. My only complaint is the beer is a little expensive there, but as I understand that keeps people from getting to wasted. [I spend lot of time here and can’t see it changing anytime soon]

Both of these towns are fairly close to Pryor, Ok. [Population 9,520] It’s the closest bigger town. It’s got a little bit of everything. That’s where the normal Walmart is. It’s about a 20 min drive. 

I know this was a long post, it is about two towns tho. They are small, but we did spend the longest time there and still head back quite often. It’s kinda like another home for us. It’s not too far from where I grew up in Wagoner, Ok.
