Almost Vacation

I took my week off and did an almost vacation. I went home for a few days (Ty had to stay here and work) and then we went to Dallas for the wedding of two very good college friends.

I didn’t take a ton of pics at home, but mom treated me for sure. We got pedicures, did a little shopping, took my cousins to the water park, played on the lake, and got some sun. It was wonderful to be home.

I also got to see a couple friends while I was home. Tuesday I had dinner with Rachael. She and I have been friends since freshman year and were roommates sophomore year. I love her to death. She just got the news that she will be doing the World Race, a mission opportunity where she will visit 11 countries in 11 months. She will be fundraising soon, so if you want to help this beautiful girl (inside and out) travel the world in Christ’s name, be on the lookout for that…I will share the info when I get it.

The next night, I met Sarajane for dinner. I forgot to take pics of us, but SJ and I are great friends and she was a bridesmaid in the wedding. (this was us before the wedding). We had a great time catching up.On my way home, the Creator blessed me with this beautiful sunset. I’m a sucker for sunsets, and God really outdid Himself on this one. I was so blessed by it.
Then Saturday, Ty and I headed to Dallas. His amazing mom (I couldn’t have custom ordered a better mom-in-law) worked for him for the last few hours on Saturday so we could get to Dallas in time for a little fun date night. We went here: Studio Movie Grill.
It is a movie theater with tables in front of your seats. You press a button on that little white coaster, it lights up, and a waiter comes to your table. You order food and drinks and eat while you watch the movie. It was neat! We saw the Expendables, which was the most manly movie I’ve ever seen. But the evening was fun.
Sunday, we slept in, got some lunch at Taco Cabana (a place our Texas friends always talk about, so we were excited to try it…it was pretty good), drove to a Dallas suburb to pick up some Jeep tires Ty found on Craigslist, then we hit the Grapevine Mills Mall for a little bit. It was dumb to go the weekend before school starts. It was crawling with kids, but it was fun.

Then we went to Liz and Michael’s wedding. This was us at the reception.
I got to see some friends…these three girls were in my house party. Kenley, me, Jessica, and Rachael. Love these girls!
The Tri Chis (our sorority/social club) sang the wedding song to Liz.
I was a little sweaty from dancing too much, but this was me and the BEAUTIFUL bride.
And this is my crazy husband and the groom. They were fraternity brothers.

It was a great weekend, and I’m back as TA training started today and goes all week. But I have some fun things planned for this week, including the first dinner party at our house! I can’t wait!
