My Weekend In Pictures

Hello, dear friends.  I hope that you had a wonderful weekend.  Ours was so much fun.  We headed to Dallas where the Mister and I threw a Couples Shower for our bride and her adorable groom.  Our #2 was our party planner extraordinaire.

As promised, I took plenty of pics.  Grab a glass of vino or a cup of joe and I'll tell you all about it.  Feel free to use the facilities, it's on the long side.

Our #1 picked us up at Love Field.  We arrived just in the nick of time for lunch. We enjoyed a delicious one at one of the royal couple's favorite restaurants, R&D Kitchen.  

Afterward, we checked into our hotel, unpacked, and rested until we took an Uber over to #1 and Adorable Jonathon's love nest for 'tails and apps.

We had a glass of wine and got the grand tour of their cute crib.
I'm using hip language because their friends might be reading this and I want them to think I'm cool.

They took us to a new restaurant called Jose.  
Boy, do I ever miss good Mexican food!

It was a beautiful evening, so we sat outside.

Can you tell that we're just a bit happy to be here?

The next day, our first stop was at Nardos, the dress designer's store.  Our bride was scheduled for her second fitting. Adorable Michael (AJ's twin) dropped his Mom off.  Our #2 and AM are going to be the Maid Of Honor and Best Man at the wedding.

If you would like to read about the first meeting our bride had with the dress designer, you can read about it here.

Nardos is filled with exquisite dresses.

How's this for clever?
It took me all morning to figure out how I was going to camouflage the dress.
I can tell you this... it is magnificent, and she looked gorgeous.

Two hours later, we entered St. Ann's for the couples shower.

Contrary to what you're thinking, that is my pec, not arm fat.
I've been lifting weights.
I started last week.  

Our #2 did a fabulous job planning the party, and her Sista was very grateful for her hard work.

This beautiful young lady is Julia who was #1's roomie in college. These are her sweet parents.  They are renting a house on the Cape during Labor Day weekend and promised to pop over to our house for lunch.  The Mister is already planning the menu.

The dashing gentleman on the right is Julia's better other half, Tim.
They are living large in NYC.

This is Mac and Kiley.
We have a lot to be thankful for when it comes to Kiley.
She and her Dad, the owner of Matthew Trent, designed our girl's engagement ring.  She also created the beautiful flower arrangements at her Mom's florist called The T Shop

The peonies were breathtaking!

These two are trouble!
Adorable Jonathon does his best to tame these two when they join forces.

The gorgeous girl on the right is Coco, who is a cardiac nurse in Houston.  She is also studying to become an Interior Designer in her spare time. 

These wonderful folks are the twins' Uncle David and Aunt Linda.

This is Kristin, #1's sweet roomie after college, and her husband, Miles.

Austin and Brittany and Caroline and Alex are such cute couples.

Shout out to Caroline who reads my blog.

Our #2 put together a cute game asking the bride and groom questions. They seem to agree on their answer to this one.

The Clooney's and the Adorables.
Soon these two dynasties will become one.
Stay tuned for the mini-series on Netflix.

I don't think I've ever seen my girl happier.

That evening, we had dinner at another fabulous Dallas hotspot, Hudson House.

On Sunday, we met Mom and Dad Adorable, the Royal Couple, and our #2 for brunch at Bistro 31 and some shopping.

With heavy hearts, we then headed for the airport.


As you know, it is customary for me to take a self-imposed Summer Sabbatical. This will be my last post until September.  Dry your tears - you can keep up with me and my fabulously glamorous life on Instagram. 

See you in September.

Until next time...

I'll spend the majority of my time reigning in these two crazies.
