Nancy's relatives are starting to trickle in so we went to the Magnolia Hotel last night. Just in case I forgot what state I was in, this is the decor that greeted us at the front desk.
Since we arrived quite late, sleeping was in order but we did check out the rooftop pool before leaving this morning (we'll be in another hotel tonight with Nancy's sister Amy).
Nancy is working today so I am on my own with the hopes of visiting Amanda at the Menil Collection in a couple hours. In addition... it's opening night of FotoFest! After dinner at the best Mexican restaurant in town... the Original Ninfa's on Navigation, we are off to see Allison Hunter's Zoosphere at Diverseworks, Anthony Goicolea at Houston Center for Photography, and Whatever Was Splendid: New American Photographs at the FotoFest headquarters at Vine Street (and of course their opening party which is always a hit). It's a relief to be done with installation and to have a day of rest. Wow! This is the first day of my spring break even though it's almost OVER!
