This weekend was hands down the best I have had in some time. It was not jam packed with event after event, but it was spent with good friends and good food was involved which is usually all I need.
Friday started off with a dinner up North (North as in Plano...which is North for me since I rarely go above 635) at a great restaurant discovered at a "celebrity" chef event this summer. Chiloso it was for grilled avocados smoothered in queso and then a stop into Homegoods before seeing Southern Vogue's fabulous home.
On Saturday morning I was up and at it as I had to get ready to attend the air show in Fort Worth. This was the second year I attended the air show and I was so excited to go again. Jennifer, Katie, Melissa and I all went and enjoyed a very American day from start to finish. We started off with some Coke Colas and BBQ sandwiches when we arrived in Fort Worth. Once it started to heat up under the sun (it may be October but it was almost 90 degrees in Fort Worth yesterday) we enjoyed some Blue Bell treats as we watched the Thunderbirds fly. They are just amazing. If you ever get the chance to see them fly, or the Blue Angels, do not pass it up. Per the announcer at yesterday's air show, they can go up to 1000 miles per hour and do the neatest formations that just leave you breathless.
After the air show we headed to Roanoke, Texas to dine at my beloved Babe's. It does not get any more American than Babe's fried chicken and biscuits with a side of creamed corn and mashed potatoes. We practically had to roll ourselves out, but somehow did manage to pop into the Southlake Lilly store on the way home (where I was thrilled to be able to snag these in PINK).
This sign above the door at Babe's made us all laugh. Kate and Wills are great, but after our red, white and blue day it put smiles on our face.
Today, it was off to church where I taught Sunday School then to the NICU to rock the babies. I did manage to hunt for some orange jeans in between, but came up empty handed. It is HARD to find well priced, good fitting colored jeans. After an online search and popping into every other store at NorthPark I finally decided purple would work for my Halloween party (outfit photo to come). Thankfully, the purple jeans were well priced and cost under $20 actually! Tonight, I topped the day off with Ides of March which was FANTASTIC!
What a WONDERFUL weekend which will only get better if the Rangers win!
