Dallas Trip

This past weekend, Chad had to go to Dallas for work. I had been dreading him going because its a long drive and he was going to be gone all weekend. It worked out that I could go with him, so we were both excited about having a little getaway. We decided to stay in The Magnolia Hotel in downtown Dallas. We haven't stayed in a nice hotel together just the two of us since our wedding! We ended up being pretty impressed witho our hotel. It was built in the early 1900's but had been renovated and updated. They had a delicious complimentary (big) breakfast in the mornings and two free drinks per person every evening and our favorite... a free cookies and milk buffet at night! The cookies and milk really sold us on the hotel! We got in Friday afternoon, and after we checked out our room, we headed downstairs to the starbucks that was connected to our hotel and got a couple of coffees, and took a stroll around downtown Dallas. It was so nice just to walk around in the beautiful weather. That night we went to Addison (the town we got engaged) to meet some of Chad's old college friends for dinner. It was so nice to get to see friends we hadn't seen in a while. On our way back to the hotel, we stopped at the spot where we got engaged, we hadn't been back since and it was so nice to reminisce on that amazing night :) The next day after breakfast, Chad had to leave me to get some work done, so I ventured out by myself and grabbed a starbucks (caffeine-free) and went next door to the original Neiman Marcus and browsed the baby, purse, and shoe section. Then me and Chad went to lunch and took his client to the Mavericks game that night. The next day we met some good friends who are newly engaged for brunch at The Iron Cactus. I recommend it if you've never been, we ate their twice while we were there. And the brunch was delicious, they had everything, it was a pregnant girls heaven. We had a fun little trip, it was nice to get away for a weekend. I was even going to get a prenatal massage, but it was kind of last minute and so I decided to wait until we got home. But it was still super relaxing and fun. We didn't take a lot of good pics, I wish we had gotten more of the hotel but here they are:

Amber and Jeremy... we checked out a hotel they might stay at for their honeymoon night







We got a little carried away with the cookie buffet... don't worry we didn't eat all of those!
