Well this weekend I got to go on a fun trip to Dallas with my sister in law Molly and her sweet intern from Germany named Christine. We were all so excited and we got very lucky to get a preferred room on the top floor of a nice 4 start hotel. First we got to go to the Gainesville outlet mall on the way down there. It was not what it used to be though. The shops were mostly closed down and we were disappointed. Next we went to the restaurant called "the magic time machine". I definitely had the wrong expectations! I had imagined something magical like Disneyland, but instead it was stinky and weird. However, we had the hardest best laughs ever. It was late by this time so we decided to go to the viewing tower so Christine could at least experience looking over all of Dallas at night. Unfortunately, the viewing tower had been closed for 2 years! SHOOT! STRIKE 3! Finally, we decided to head in for the night. At least our hotel is awesome. The jacuzzi sounds relaxing and wonderful at this point BUT... Can you guess??? Well,  it was broken! I'm glad we got all our strikes out Friday because I really wanted Saturday to be the best day of our trip.
So Saturday, after a quick stop at starbucks, we made our first stop at the container store. I have always wanted to go there and I must is pretty awesome! Next on our agenda, a drive to Allen to hit the outlets. Yeah! I have to say outlet malls have got to be on the top of "my favorite things" list. We definitely hit the jackpot  there. Everyone got something they wanted. I scored my first coach purse for $70! I also got the most comfy under armour tennis shoes. They make me feel like I am walking on marshmallows! And more importantly, they have pink on them!
When we left there, we tried this mom and pop kind of hamburger joint called Snuffers...WOW! I would totally go back there. Fattening and greasy, but totally delicious. Stuffed and happy and now we are on the hunt for ipods for Christine. We hop on over to the Galleria, but no a
Apple store. Christine did find some cute post cards though. Ok, we try Northpark mall, where they do have an apple store and she gets an ipod, but they do not have the older version that her brother wants. They wanted to buy them here because they are cheaper in America than in Germany. Still looking....
Last we enjoy another amazing meal at Manny's mexican restaurant recommended by Molly's dad. Mmmm, another awesome, local, good eats. After that, we are completely ready to crash, our feet are absolutely killing us!
Sunday morning we grab breakfast at yet another amazing local...Breadwinners...ummm we totally need one here. I have to say that was my must favorite meal this weekend. Their cinnamon raisin french toast was perfection.
Drive home? wonderful.
Seeing my boys faces when I walked in the door? Priceless.
Giving them their surprise jammis, bubble gum and giant Texas pencil? Fun!
There reaction? Precious.
Everything about thus weekend was wonderful, even the strikeouts.
Why? Because I got know know my sister better, and I love her.
