So Much Life

April.

So much has been happening in this month that I’ve not been able to keep up!

Easter and a Rangers game is all I’ve been able to capture.

One of my very best friends is getting married in May. In Hawaii. And I don’t get to go. *Sob* We had a little celebration in honor of their upcoming nuptials.

A Saturday afternoon we met up and checked into the Omni Mandalay Hotel in Las Colinas for our girls night. Gorgeous hotel in the Irving area that overlooks a little man-made lake.

We proceeded to a nail spot for a few hours of getting our fingers and toes pampered.

Then, who knew that Grapevine, Texas had a gorgeous winery?  Delaney Vineyards Winery provided a four wine sample tasting and a tour for only $10! We brought our own fruit and cheese boards and really enjoyed ourselves.

It doesn’t compare to a wine tour in Fredericksburg, but it’s only a 20 minute drive from pretty much anywhere in DFW.

We moved along to Mexican food and margaritas at Esparza’s in downtown Grapevine. We managed to squeeze in the last of the nice weather on the patio before an absolutely crazy storm hit DFW. We decided to slumber party and watched the lightening from our 17th story window at the hotel, wrapped up in robes and drinking a few cocktails, instead of trying to venture out. This was the best decision because we all had quality time talking, about everything.  Marriage, kids and our friendships.

SO good for the soul.

Before the month’s end, squeezed in another birthday for this girl. Another birthday has come and gone and I’m still 28. Maybe 29. I haven’t decided yet.

We celebrated at The Rustic in Dallas, with the Dallas Cowboys, totally unintentionally. When I picked the dinner spot, I was looking for a place with a nice outdoor area and it happened to be the same place as the official Cowboys Draft Party. Bonus!

Probably would have enjoyed the evening a little more if it wasn’t SO crazy busy. The Rustic is a great indoor/outdoor restaurant but it was a pretty pricey dinner tab. For as much as we paid to have a few drinks and eat, we could have gone to an upscale steak house. I’ll remember that for next time.  Regardless, it was great to spend time with people important to me!

Spent the rest of April and first day of May hanging with my boys and spending as much time outside as possible.

The rest of this week is scheduled to be super stormy and less than ideal for any type of outdoor activities. I am not complaining because this rainy spring was desperately needed for the North Texas area. The last few years, we’ve suffered drought after drought, with our lakes becoming less and our yards thirsty.

April showers bring May flowers!

XOXO
