Galveston Girls Weekend


I met up with my friends Megan and Cherie in Galveston earlier this month for our 3rd girls getaway weekend. We really had a ton of fun, who knows where we'll end up next?

Highlights:
  • The Spa at the Hotel Galvez (really the main reason we went to Galveston)
  • Drinks and great views at The Tremont Rooftop bar
  • Lots of good food: Oysters at The Black Pearl, breakfast at Miller's (yum!), a great brunch at the hotel
  • Fun midnight roller coaster rides at the Pleasure Pier, Megan definitely peer-pressured us into this one, it wasn't nearly as scary at night though
  • Fabulous football watching at The Spot with ocean views + 3 overtimes and a Tech victory
  • A quick Sunday lunch with Maggie on the way home and Megan's first stop at Bucee's

Chihuly Fall



I had a great time with my parents at the Dallas Arboretum earlier this month. We finally made it out to see the Chihuly glass installation (a belated Mother's Day adventure) and it did not disappoint. Bonus: the little pumpkin houses were out to enjoy and it was the first weekend cool enough to wear a coat. If you haven't seen the glass yet it is well worth the trip, very nice.
