When people visit us in Houston, we find quirky events that reflect our everyday life here. We’ve taken guests to tour the Beer Can House, eat at Jus’ Mac (the best mac and cheese place ever!), and see the view from the 60th floor observatory deck of the Chase Tower. Here are a few of the highlights from March:
While we missed Jimmy Fallon, Rachel, myself, and 70,000 other people went to see Janet Jackson. I thought nothing could top Janet’s performance at the rodeo… until I saw this:

WEINER DOG RACES
When my dad was in town, we found some weiner dog races to attend.
Many of the dogs didn’t quite understand that this was a race. Some dogs ran in circles around each other. One chased a horse for quite some time. There were weiner dogs EVERYWHERE. It was awesome!

After seeing dozens of presidents and the Beatles, we found this I love Houston sculpture:
Thus concludes our March highlights on why Houston is awesome. Stay tuned for a post on the time we went skydiving!
