Slumber Party 1

I just picked up another drug and had to go to Dallas for training.  Such a bummer to be able to see my best friends, my one and only nephew, and be able to eat at all of my favorite restaurants ...... of course I LOVED IT!

Once I landed from San Diego, my first meal was Houston's!  If I could eat one salad the rest of my life, it would be their Chicken Salad .... ohhhhhh yummyness!!!  Dallas has changed so much in the three and a half years I have been gone, and it was great having a meeting in my old stomping grounds!

Second on the schedule, meeting up with my other half, Abby!  I hadn't seen Colt since April, and loved being able to spend some time with him.  Abby has been talking about her Mom's new cookie monster (jk, not sure the name of it though) dessert, and it was to-die for!  I only needed a few bites since it was so rich, but it could have been sold in a restaurant for sure.


Haley, Abby's sister, came to play too!
BOBBLES AND MILK for sure!

Bathing the precious thang', Colt is now 9 and a half months old and such a happy baby!

All clean!!

Happy momma's with a sleeping baby
and hours of chit-chatting!

When we wake up, of course, shopping!!  Yippeskips!

and then TACO BUENO --- my favorite!!
read about it here and here!

Don't judge me -- I love it!

Abby, you look so cute, don't kill me, hahah!!!


**Next up ..... tons of pics with the Lugar's!

omg omg omg I got so hooked on Taco Bueno in college and once I moved back home to Austin there were NONE. And now? I drive to Round Rock (20 minutes) or San Marcos (45) to get my fix! Pathetic? I think not, its well worth the drive. Im sure youd agree.

~KS said...

Sounds like such an awesome trip!!!! And that taco... I would never judge. I would have been shoving it even farther in my own mouth... YUM!
And I love Houston's. When I used to travel for work, I would always find a Houston's to eat at for dinner :)

Jenny DB said...

AAaaah I remember going to Houston's with Shel I think when I visited SMU. Lots of sandwich and bistro type options? Mmmmm...

MCW said...

Houston' is one of the only chain restaurants I will go too! The spinach and artichoke sip is delish!

Looks like you had a blast...that baby is adorable!

short southern momma said...

Kelli Kegley said...

Ok. That cookie looks amazing. I think my stomach just growled! On another note, I nominated you for a blog award on my blog. I know you have already recieved it, so don't feel like you have to post about it again! I just thought I'd let you know :)

Cute pics! I haven't been to Taco Bueno. True story.

Jax said...

YAY! Love it! And I love your friend, Abby's blog, too! That pic of ya'll with the laptops....and of Colt in the sink...MY FAVS! :) And Taco Bueno is a definite vice. Eric eats it um.. 3 times a week. No joke. He says it's his cure for anything that ails him since his mom ate it so much while she was prego.. Seriously, that's his argument. haha... :) Glad you had a good time in Dallas, girly! :)

Libbie said...

Sounds like a great trip! I love that picture of you two drinking wine working away on your laptops - I'm kind of obsessed with that bench/table thing that your laptops are on - is that a table that slides up over the bed? Where can I find it!?!?
