Deep in the Heart of Texas

I am FINALLY getting around to putting up some of the pics from my birthday trip to Dallas! I had an amazing time with my best friend Brandi in my home state. :)

I flew out of Chicago on March 8. That consisted of breakfast at 5 a.m. at Starbucks... It made me miss 392 Caffe and its superior Caramel Macchiatos.

You know you're in Texas when... This was at DFW, where I hung out until Brandi was able to come pick me up. To entertain myself I read up on the movie I am dying to see...

I am so excited for this! Though despite some suggestions, I will not be dressing in a costume. Maybe a side braid, but that's as far as I'll take it.

Anyway, Brandi picked me up in time for us to grab lunch with her hubbie (and also a really great friend of mine from college) Jordan. Later in the afternoon he flew out to Brazil, so we had to grab some quick pics at the airport before he left.

Brandi and Jordan. They are two of the absolute best friends anyone could ask for.

I had to take a pic of these photos. They remind me so much of the times we all spent together at Moody and when Bran and Jordan first met.

Okay, random I know, but every place we went in Dallas had these amazing sinks. Each one was different and none were the typical white porcelain.

For my birthday we got pedicures with hot stone massages. Um, can anyone say amazing? :)

The tubs were pretty sweet with color-changing lights.

Finished product... Orange with cute little flowers.

After our pedis we got manis, then went shopping. I found my new favorite store and I am absolutely obsessed now with Charming Charlie. The entire place is color-coordinated and has TONS of cute accessories.

This clutch/wallet is one of the items I found while we were there. Love the sea foam green color, it adds a nice pop of color to outfits.

Later we went to Naan for sushi for my birthday dinner. It was sooooo good.

My birthday cake... Chocolate truffle cheesecake. Yes, it was delicious. :)

We got to Face Time a couple of times with Jordan.

The next day we went to the Galleria... one of the coolest malls in Dallas. It has an ice skating rink in the middle and TONS of shops.

One of my purchases... Love the color blocking and the coral, which is really in this season. I'll be posting more on my clothing purchases and summer outfits later. So consider this a teaser. ;)

I made friends with Bran and Jordan's sweet dogs too. Above is Chewie and below is Avi. :)

Sorry it's taken me so long to post! More updates coming soon, I promise! :)

aww fun! I was leaving moody at the same time your year was coming in, I think. I knew Jordan, just a little. I heard he just started at DTS, where my husband just graduated from. It was a good week for you visit dallas! Beautiful weather.
