a mini vacation...

We had a 4 day weekend due to the MLK holiday. I could do this every week LOL.

We didn't really make any plans, just decided to hang out and decide as we go. And it was fun :)

Friday, we took my parents to lunch. It never fails, I try to give my folks a break and they beg to see the girls anyway. I am very grateful to have them in my life and that they adore those girls so much.

Saturday, we met up with Brandie and D for lunch at Aparicio's. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the koi pond and the DART train running by every 15 minutes or so. No - it was a good thing LOL...the kids loved being so close to the train! But sorry, B - I did NOT like the food there!
We then met up with Tracey and Z at Ikea - yes, on a Saturday afternoon! YIKES! But it really wasn't so bad and I love me some Ikea!! We spent 3 hours there and I left with some stuff I "needed" and a few more things added to my must have list. We decided to stop at Cici's for dinner and then headed home. The girls were wiped out (and so was Mommy!)

Sunday, we met the group again at the Dallas Zoo. It was a beautiful day! We only had a couple of hours until closing so it was a little rushed but we had a good time. My friends were so kind to share their membership benefits - I am determined to get us a membership as well to pass on the kindness ;) Dinner at The Black Eyed Pea and then home for movie night - Enchanted, I love that movie!

We will hit up a park today and get things ready for a short work/school week (YAY)

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and have a great week!


  1. Sounds like fun was had by all! I'm glad you guys got to enjoy the long weekend - and yay for a short work week!

  2. I love 4 day weekends. And I like Aparicio's dining experience, but the food is definitely lacking. But if you go there just for tortillas, chips, and salsa, it isn't so bad. :)

    We love Enchanted too!

  3. Is it weird that the highlight of that to me was Black Eyed Pea? lol
