Houston Talk - No Label Brewery

So let's say this one is more of a Houston (Area) Talk.  The No Label Brewery is not really in Houston, but it's in the suburbs of Houston in Katy.  Last weekend I went for the first time with my husband and mother and father-in-law.  It was a beautiful Fall day and a perfect time to hang out at the brewery.  You are allowed to bring fold out chairs, canopies, snacks, games, kids and even dogs.  There are some picnic tables if you get there early enough, and there is a wide open cement space to set up your own gear and tailgating games.  There is live music, football playing on a projection screen and local food trucks and vendors (which change from week to week). 

A couple of things to note.  The brewery is only open from noon - 3 pm on Saturdays and now a Happy Hour on Friday evenings.  There is a $5 admission, which includes a tasting glass and 4 drink tokens.  For $7 more you can buy a pint glass.   To be honest, I enjoy beer from time to time although it's usually not my drink of choice, but I did really like the Ridgeback Amber Ale.  That's saying a lot coming from me!  Just so you know.  I think more than the beer, personally, I enjoyed the atmosphere and how chill the place is.  It's a fun local hang out spot to gather with friends and family.  Now the husband on the other hand, really enjoys beer.  I mean doesn't that go without saying?  Here are some pics so you can see what this place is all about.

I'm already looking forward to our next visit!  I think we may even let Gus join us next time!  That will be a new adventure.  :)

Five on Friday {2nd Edition}

{one} We went to Sonoma and Napa last weekend, and as I had no doubt, we loved it. The weather was perfect and the wineries and the views were all amazing.  We already can't wait to go back one day.  Here's a peek, and I'll have to do a re-cap soon! 

(my husband's first pic of me for my blog, so don't judge that my head is cut off.  :) He was trying!) 

Look at those views in the back!  Also, I'm wearing my new fav shirt!
{two} I'm glad the fall shows have started!  I think it's bad as it makes me want to sit on the couch even more, but it's so fun to have my shows back.  I LOVE Parenthood and Nashville!  If you haven't ever watched Parenthood, you should go back and watch all of the prior seasons.  So good!

{three} While I enjoyed all of the amazing wine and great fresh food we had on our trip, I really have been craving our good ole Tex-Mex food.  So the hubby and I are having a date night tonight with fajitas and margaritas before we crash and go straight to bed.  We thought we might go see a movie tonight after dinner, but then this morning we decided that might be a little overambitious.  Who are we kidding anyways?  I mean we'll be lucky if we make it through dinner. 

{four} You wouldn't believe how badly I need a mani/pedi.  I'm definitely getting one before Jeff and I have a date night tonight.  He'll be working a little later, so I'm going to take advantage of the free time I have.  I'm ready for some fall colors on my nails. This one is called "Skirting the Issue." You like?
{five} This weekend I want to decorate for fall!  I'd like to do our front entryway and maybe our mantle too.  Of course along with taking some naps and relaxing on the couch.  Work is going to be really busy this month, so I need to rest while I can.  I ordered some mercury glass pumpkins last year at the end of the season and am ready to put them out for this year mixed in with some other fall decor.
Have a wonderful weekend all of you!
