On our trip to EP, I had a little bit of everything …

As soon as we arrived, we hit Saigon Taste for Vietnamese ~ so I got my bubble tea fix!

Taro Tea from Saigon Taste Vietnamese Restaurant

We took in the breeze of the CHRISTmas trees at Ft. Bliss … at B-Dubs of all places!

♪Grandma got run over by a Reindeer

Actually, yours truly got stunned over by a Reindeer!

B-Dubs HOLYday YOLO: Spiked Apple Cider * Italian Burger (complete with Mozzarella Sticks & Pepperoni)

My AF brat bestie’s hubby’s grad party was complete with menudo and Peter Piper Pizza!

¡Menudo y más cerca de México!

Before hitting the road, I tried the *NEW* HOLYday flavor at Starbucks!

As it sounds like in Taylor Swift‘s Blank Space
♪This goes out to you *Starbucks$ ♥lovers♫

& victory (which also appeared into my B-Dubs to-go box) is sweet with this travel-friendly treat, compliments of my EP buddy!

¡Biénvenidos de … El Paso!

I found this fortune while cleaning my classroom after our fall finals!

This past weekend, I took a rare break off to travel to the westernmost tip of Texas ~ visiting my Air Force brat bestie for her hubby’s and another fellow AF brat/veteran’s graduation from The University of Texas at El Paso with their degrees in Criminal Justice!

While there, I toured Fort Bliss, the largest Army post in the U.S.

Plus, I had more photo opps at the WWII Veterans Memorial!

Then I returned home just in time for the second ½ of my Dallas Cowboys game at their NFC East Rivals, the Philly Eagles!

C is for (clockwise from right) … CHRISTmas * Cats * Cowboys ~ CHEER for ALL of the Above!

¡Saludades a los Estudiantes! ¡Felicidades a los Graduates!
