Huge props to my siblings for being good sports. We took these pictures on the last day that we would all be in our thirties & I can't imagine anyone else I would rather have spent these moments with.
Love you two so much & can't wait to have our "Last day to all be in our fourties" party in ten years. (LOL)

I had the distinct privelege of touring the Meyerson Symphony Center today along with all of the elementary music teachers from Mesquite ISD.
Ms. Margret Wosynski gave us the most enjoyable tour. (She even allowed us to sing in the balcony, which apperently is not allowed unless you are a performer.)

I had lunch today with Mindy & Danyale. They introduced me to a new ice cream shop in Balch Springs where I sampled some interesting flavors.

My sister and Lecia joined me at the Zodiac restaurant on the 6th floor of the Neiman Marcus Flagship store in downtown Dallas.
My main goal was to enjoy their famous popovers with strawberry jam butter. They were wonderful.
Along with lunch, I was able to taste their famous tangerine orange soufflé, which was different, but good.
After lunch, we walked up the street to the Joule Hotel and admired the giant eyeball, which is an actual art piece.

I've been absent for a couple of days so......I caught up with some new adventures today!
(At the request of my friend Katie McMurren, who is apperently living vicariously through my blog, I will give a running dialog of my day)
My sister in law, Jen and I took our kids & my niece, Skylar, on a tour of Downtown Dallas.
Our first goal was to find some of the B & G letters scattered through out the city.
Stop number two: Klyde Warren Park
They climbed the tree house, ropes, built with foam shapes and had lunch from the food trucks.
Stop three: Thanksgiving Square
This was quite a learning experience and focuses on finding a deep inner path to giving thanks.
This exhibit must be done in person to understand the full impact of it's purpose.

Savannah wanted a beach themed birthday party, so of course, I hit Pinterest.
She decided on the Teddy Graham beach cupcakes.
Target provided the cupcakes with icing that looked like water.
I painted swimsuits on the bears, added graham cracker sand, umbrellas, and other accessories for the bears.

For the first time in my life, I bought this awesome drink on the soil of Texas.
Ale 8 is a drink manufactured in my dad's hometown of Winchester, Ky.
The name means "A Late One" which is actually printed on the top if the label.
Popcorn Papa in Rockwall sells the bottles (the best way to drink it, by the way).
