Weekend Recap: Dallas Wedding

Weekend Recap: Dallas Wedding

I took Friday off work for a little fun in Dallas.  Tyler’s college roommate, Bryce, was getting married Friday night….so we headed down late Thursday after Zumba.  While Tyler did wedding stuff, my MIL Nancy and I played around Dallas.

We started by going to the HUGE Lifetime Fitness for a Zumba class.  I had connected with an instructor online and visited her class.  It was SO fun to be a Zumba student!  (this was post class…so we have the “Zumba glow!” ha!)

Nancy and I had a GREAT lunch at Pei Wei, and then I got a facial/massage while she shopped.  It. Was. Glorious.  Been way too long since I pampered myself.

We did a little shopping after.  I took her to Anthropologie, which she loved. (duh) And then we got ready for the wedding.

The chapel was GORGEOUS and the bride and groom looked great.  It was a sweet ceremony too.  (Check out my hunk in the grey vest on the end!)

We had fun at the reception (and Tyler even did a little dancing during the Cupid Shuffle!)

Saturday we played all around North Dallas area.  We hit up Macy’s, the outlet mall, and Whole Foods…where we had an AMAZING spread at lunch.  I made a HUGE salad, and Tyler and Nancy split a piece of pizza, sushi, cajun mac and cheese and srirachamole (guacamole with sriracha!). It was a beautiful 70 degrees out, so we had a little picnic.

We also hit up Ikea, a big hobby shop (for Tyler for making it through Ikea!), and Trader Joe’s.  We got home at like 11:30 Saturday night.

Sunday I was in the nursery (and I hope I didn’t catch the sniffling in all those little noses) and then we had lunch with my Grandma Ellie who was visiting from Hot Springs.  In the afternoon, I organized our hall closet, started to work on the guest bedroom closet, and the laundry room with stuff from Ikea.  I LOVE the storage in the bottom of the closet now, and the shoe organizer on the inside of the door holding party supplies.

That new hanging rack with bins is from Ikea.  I am loving it…we just have to figure out where it belongs in the laundry room.

And this was the aftermath of putting together Ikea stuff!

We had our last home group meeting last night, too.  I got home around 8 and then we watched a bit of the Grammys and went to bed early after a long weekend.

I LOVED my relaxing time, and (while my wallet begs to differ) I’m glad we did some shopping too.
