It was all healthy and stuff, LOL. Home grown in Texas.
Once we got back to the "fancy" hotel, we noticed our bed was turned back...see fancy I tell ya. The hotel is on this little lake, river something or another, basically there is a really nice walk way along some water. So we decided it was a nice night to take a stroll, explore the property and the hotel. We came up to the workout room and decided to pump a little iron and burn off our ice cream calories...for a total of 10 minutes. It made for a great end to the evening!!
On Friday night I took some NyQuil with hopes I'd be able to sleep in really late on Saturday morning. I made it to 8:30, not to bad. I ate my wal-mart bought breakfast (something else we did Friday night was buy me breakfast at Walmart so I wouldn't have to pay for room service. Not Jeffery's call, my cheap self call), sat out on the balcony and looked at facebook. About 10 oclock I woke Jeffery up and said "the pool and the sun are calling my name, are you coming?" So off to the pool we went. I LOVED IT!!! I love the sun, I love the pool and I love just being able to float and relax in the pool. PERFECT!!! Later at lunch time we decided to be frugal again (reminder: wal mart breakfast instead of room service) and not order something from the hotel. Although it was tempting, remember it was a fancy hotel and they would have delivered it out to us at the pool. I liked the idea of that, but went for Jeffery going to get Subway instead. We enjoyed our sandwiches, got showered and ready for the day and off to shopping we went at Grapevine Mills mall. See Saturday night was the part of the weekend I didn't know what we were doing, it was still a surprise.
So once we did a little retail celebrating we headed to downtown Ft. Worth for more celebrating. I, and I think Jeffery too, hadn't ever been to downtown Ft. Worth. It was such a neat place. In a way it kind of felt like a downsized downtown Chicago. There were lots of people there, walking around and a lot going on. But it didn't seem to be just the big corporate buildings. Tons of shopping, restaurants, bands playing outside. It was really neat. So once we get down there Jeffery tells me to be looking for a restaurant called Billy Miner's...looking looking looking and there it is I found it. It looked like a happening fun place. We parked and headed our way over there, go in where there are tons of people and low and behold who do we see...my friend Melody McGarrah!!!! She and her husband "just" happen to be eating there at the exact same time...Surprise!!!! My sweet, dear friend who moved away from us to the DFW area and Jeffery arranged for us to meet up with them for dinner. It was such a good time with great hamburgers and really tasty fries!
Dang the girl who took this, ok that isn't nice I know...but come on!
Yet my surprises kept coming, we walked literally right across the street and went to my very first comedy club. Melodie has told me about this place, Four Day Weekend, and how she and Jeremy love to go there. Boy was it a treat. It's an improv club and it was so much fun. Then to top it off, they over sold the show, and we ended up sitting on the stairs...BUT we got our money back!! Whoop whoop. You know this cheap girl loves that. But the show was well worth the price of the ticket too. And of course loved seeing my friend.
Thank you Jeffery and friends, I had a blast!!!
Then what better way to end the night than with more ice cream!!!
Sunday morning I left J in bed as I headed down to the pool to catch a few last rays!! Loved it. Then we headed out of our pretty hotel to do some final retail celebration at the Allen Outlet mall. While there my friend Cara met up with us. I guess we got to wrapped up in shopping that I didn't get a picture but we did enjoy a tasty caramel apple with some other yummies from the Chocolate factory. Then we headed North to go get our little guy. It was a good get away but the time came where we just couldn't see his face soon enough.
Thanks babe for spoiling me!! Happy 6th Anniversary.
