Finally Can Explore Off Base

What is Phase 2 on Fort Sam Houston?

Very simply stated, phase 2 for military personnel means freedom. Fort Sam Houston, Texas is a joint military base that teaches us all about medicine. Since being here in a student status there are phases we have to abide by. Phase 1 means you can not leave base. Phase 2 means you can wear civilian clothes and stay off base until 2200. Phase 3 means you can stay off base until midnight and have the option of staying overnight. I am finally phase 2! Freedom at last. I know most wouldn’t know what to think of it. It’s a mind boggling idea don’t get me wrong. But, being able to explore San Antonio has been so far and this is only the beginning.

San Antonio is such a cute and historic city. From The Alamo to the Riverwalk and everything in between. Today has only been my first night out exploring and we actually found ourselves over at La Cantera Shops. Everyone needs a little retail therapy and a nice walk through shops sometimes. The weekends coming up only has more opportunity for places to explore! I love being in a new place, a new State to explore and check out. The shops, the food the attractions are all here and accessible. It is always nice to go out and enjoy the weather (when it decides to be nice) and just walk around and explore. Here is to new friends, new adventures and new brunch places! Stay tuned!

Brezo Restaurant: Perfect for Brunch

Just my Food for Thought on Brezo

Almost every Sunday I try and have brunch with my family. Whether it’s staying at home in our PJ’s and cooking brunch, or dressing up and finding a new restaurant to try. Since almost all of us were home, minus my little bro, we decided to try a new place in our area. The restaurant Brezo, is old school, quaint and has a little Latin flair found in Point Richmond California which is truly a hidden gem. I ordered something called the Mt. Tam potatoes, dad ordered the Mt. Diablo Chilaquiles Verdes and mom ordered the Berry Belgian Waffle. While we were waiting for our food, my mom and I each ordered a mimosa. They were delicious and you can never do without one during Sunday brunch. The food came out and everything was absolutely amazing. The right amount of spice went into mine and dad’s plates and mom had the freshest blueberries I’ve had in a while. Everything was fresh and done with care. Needless to say, we are definitely going back there to try out more dishes and maybe have give dinner a shot. The ambiance of the restaurant was so nice, decorated with beautiful artwork, an old-school bar at the front and fresh cut flowers on each and every table. Can’t wait to try them out again!

If you would like to read more reviews or try them out for yourselves I highly suggest you stop by for a bite to eat!
