dallas via snapchat

I spent last {long} weekend in Dallas visiting my sissy, Brittany!  We had so much fun, however we kind of dropped the ball when it came to taking pictures, but there's always time for a quick snap or two! So this will be a bit of a non-traditional post, and if you follow me on Snapchat I apologize for the duplication, but this way you'll get my lovely color commentary along with it!

I mean really though, XNA is such a joke - but I wouldn't trade it for the world! It is so nice to have an airport where you can check in, get through security, make it to your gate and have a glass of wine in hand all in the span of 15 minutes. It just cost a little too much to fly in and out of, if you ask me, but I won't get too greedy!
I loved that I could fly Friday night after work, and still get into Dallas with enough time to enjoy my evening with Britty - which definitely included more wine.
Currently reading: Two by Two by Nicholas Sparks - more on this in a later post, but if you're curious since you can't really tell by the above photo.

After a late wine night catching up, we definitely slept-in in Brittany's super cozy bed {I mean, I could devote an entire post to her beautiful little place}.  We eventually pulled ourselves together and out of PJs to hit the town for a girls day.  First stop: pedis.  I'm in love with my new toe color guys {and considering I look at nail polish all. day. long. you better take note} It's Essie's Wicked. Don't be turned off by the purple color in the bottle. It's like the deepest wine you can ever imagine, and it's edgy, and I {heart} it.
As soon as our toes were perfect, it was lunch time! Of course we ate Mexican and it was delish.  Once we had a little food in our belly, we decided it was time to shop! Britt took me to a couple of her favorite stores, and it was so much fun shopping in new boutiques. I mean -- pedicures, cheese dip, and shopping with your best girl -- does it get any better?

Saturday night we went out with a couple of Brittany's closest friends and it was so nice to get to meet them because I know how much she loves them!  It was a low key night, and we happened to snap the only photo that was gram-worthy from the whole weekend.  I would count that as a win!

Somehow Brittany always convinces me to do a work out class when I'm in town {not quite sure how this happens}! But I always enjoy them, even though they completely kill me because Brittany is beast-mode and in comparison I am kitty-mode.  We did a barre code class and I can just say I had no idea what I was getting myself into.  They may make it look super easy, I'll be the first to tell you, it's not. Anyone know of any barre code classes in NWA? I'd love to {attempt} to do it regularly!

After working out, and a healthy lunch at a fun salad bar in Dallas {can I mention that we have absolutely NO good salad restaurants in NWA, can someone fix this please?}, Sunday was all about watching the game. We went to a bar with a group of her friends to watch and had so much fun. So much fun that there isn't actually any photo evidence of Sunday at all, sorry - but that's the signs of a really good day // night, right?

After everything that was Sunday, we decided to take it easy Monday which was so nice.  Did a little bit more shopping, but mostly just rested, ate yummy food, laughed a lot, and watched TV.  This time with sweet Britty is priceless, y'all. It has been so long since we've had such good sister time, and I already can't wait to go back!

Luckily, my amazing Nana stayed at our house with Charlie so that we could have a great weekend away with no worries {since Blake was out of town at the Kansas City game}.  She sent many adorable pictures like the one above, and for that I am so very grateful.  There is nothing better than proof of life pictures - especially when they're as cute as this one!

And after such a fun weekend away, the reality of 5 AM always hits you hard, but kind of glad to be back to my early morning workouts with my momma {plus I'm sure I have a few extra calories to burn off}!
