We had such a great weekend! I already mentioned meeting the fabulous Mojito Maven on Wednesday night right after we arrived in Dallas.
On Thursday, my Dad and I went out on the Katy Trail with Beaux, the most wonderful dog in the world. Then we walked to the Village Burger Bar and I had a fantastic turkey burger. Todd and I dropped my dad off at work for a meeting, then we went to my mom's store to pick out some fabric for our living room furniture that we're having recovered. (more on that later)
That night, we packed a picnic and went to the Arboretum for a picnic and big band music. It was so much fun! The pumpkins were everywhere and it was such a perfect night.
Then we decided to try the fried grilled cheese sandwich. This was pretty good, too, but it definitely didn't need the dipping sauce. We washed this down with a funnel cake that we all shared. I wanted to try so much more, but I couldn't handle it. We were done.
My brother met us at the Fair after he drove in from Louisiana and I was so happy to see him! I hadn't seen him since we rode to south Mississippi together to pick up Fiona. His hair has grown so much and he has a little bit of a beard. I really didn't recognize him... what a strange feeling!
On Saturday, we spent the entire day watching football. One game after the other. We pulled ourselves together to get ready and head to Tillman's Roadhouse. Upon my friend, Cyndi's recommendation, we had the Trio of Fries and I had the chipotle ribs and white mac 'n cheese for my entree. So yummy!!! We skipped dessert because we were basically still full from Friday's State Fair adventures.
We managed to huddle together for one big family photo after eating at Tillman's. My punk brother was tickling me to get me to "smile for real" and I ended up all squinty.
It was a fantastic weekend and I can't wait to do it again!
