Last weekend my good friend Beth Morgan came into Dallas to shoot a wedding and we got to spend an entire evening with her, it was much needed Beth time :). We of course started at the best bakery on earth (dessert first, so fun;), and then met Stephen at Asian Mint (another fav of mine) for dinner. Afterwards, Beth and I had some girltime perusing Northpark (grateful for the A/C!) and I bought a couple of things at Forever 21:
These for Beth
This necklace for me. If you'll remember, I loosely tried to copy this back in May. But I was so happy to find it was $6.80 at Forever21 as opposed to $38 at Anthropologie. And it's the exact same necklace, not one difference (well, other than a $31 savings :).
It rained a little bit this weekend and cooled us off, the temperature is actually pleasant. The heat makes me so tired so quickly, it's nice for a break. But nonetheless, this weekend was very productive! Friday I had breakfast with my friend Debra at Newhaus Cafe which we discovered is owned by a South African family. It was fun to talk to the owner for a minute about our recent visit to South Africa. Then I ran a bunch of errands (in the heat!). Saturday was spent "inside" cleaning and re-organizing (therapy for me) during the day and then in the evening Stephen and I saw State of Play which we both really enjoyed (no racy sex scenes, little cussing & no gory violence). Yesterday I sewed leather for my first time (and haven't been that frustrated since I began sewing a year ago) and I'll post my finished project later this week.
Stephen and I are also getting ready for our vacation this Saturday! We will spend one week in Seattle and Portland and then board Royal Carribean for a one week Alaskian Cruise with Marriage Today. Hats off to my hubby, who has gone to great lengths to give us such a fabulous vacation! It's been in the making for over 9 months. We're both SO SO SO excited!!!!
