Day Tripping – Texas Town Tour

I love my state of Texas and I have reason to believe my state loves me back. With so many cute small towns filled with murals, mom & pop shops & color…I had to take advantage of a girl’s day trip with my friend Stacy, The Hurried Hostess.

First stop, Martha’s Bloomers. Spotted this cute place from the highway in Navasota and had to hit a U-turn. This cute place not only had a wonderful nursery but was a cute gift shop and restaurant.

After spending some time wandering around we decided to get back on track. First stop, Bryan/College Station. As a Sam Houston State Bearkat, I’m not one to highlight Texas A&M but I enjoyed my day trip passing through Bryan/College Station. Being able to stumble on memorable murals that was probably created for me to come and pose in front of, haha!

Join me on the journey….First Stop “AggieLand” or Bryan/College Station. This mural was the kickoff to our adventure. We found this beauty on the side of the bookstore (where else?). As I travelled along with the day trip, I figured a growing balloon garland is the BEST accessory. Blowing up balloons in the car while driving – not safe…don’t do it…good thing these babies were clear.

Next stop…we had to hit this cute donut shop called Babe’s Doughnuts. Typical college town donut spot with cheap tasty sweets, coffee options and round tables packed with students studying and sucking up wifi. I liked this place.

My donut of choice – glaze. Simple, classic and sweet..my donuts for photos, anything that looks like a party I’d like to attend.

 Babe's Doughnuts - pink icing, maple & bacon, samoa donuts. Donut holes are glazed, cinnamon sugar & powdered

Next stop…downtown Bryan for Tacos. More like a mural that professes what every woman wants. “Feed me Tacos & Tell Me I’m Pretty.” I guarantee that may have been a part of someone’s wedding vows. There were a few cute murals in this town square radius and if you can’t tell…I had fun!
