Day two in Dallas was just as fun as the first day!
First , we had (free!) breakfast at the hotel. This was my cheat meal for the weekend. They had omelets, waffles, all sorts of juices, all types of milk, biscuits and gravy, eggs, yogurt, cereal, sausage and bacon, potatoes, and more! It was very tasty and filling.
After breakfast, we went over to my sisters house. We got to see the baby room she and Steve created for Ethan. If you haven’t noticed, my sister is quite good at everything she does, so it’s no surprise that the baby room she decorated looks amazing and super professional! Here are some pics.
My favorite part of the room is the dark blue ceiling. It looks like a nighttime sky and I just love it.
Next, my sister took us to the Dallas Arboretum. It’s a place with tons of gorgeous flowers, plants, trees, pretty water, etc. It also happens to be where my sister got married. 🙂 I had a great time walking around and seeing all the colorful landscape.
This next picture is my favorite. The plant was called whales tongue. I don’t think the name could be any more fitting.
I love this next picture of my mom and sister.
And after that photo, I told them to do silly faces. This is what I got…
This picture cracks me up! They look like they either just lost a loved one, or they’re super tired and fell asleep. Haha. 🙂
After the Arboretum, we said goodbye to my sister and Steve and headed to Trader Joes.
I’ve been really wanting to go to Trader Joes for quite some time now. Megan and I have received foods from there in our FPP boxes and we had heard such great things about the quality and the prices, so I was extremely excited to go to one in Dallas.
I expected Trader Joes to be bigger, but it was still a great place with lots of stuff.
I read some reviews beforehand to see which products other people love. I didn’t take any pictures of my stuff but here’s what I ended up buying. I got 2 bags of kale chips, a large bag of chili lime cashews, pre-made sushi, roasted tomato and red pepper soup, coconut oil spray, TJs multi grain cheerios, sweet basil chicken sausage, pb&j candy bar, enchilada sauce, salsa verde, truffle cheese, Trader Joes version of barbecue pop-chips, and a few other things I can’t remember at the moment.
The kale chips were $3.00 cheaper at TJs than at the store I usually buy them at here in Tulsa. AND, they were delicious! The cashews are sooooo yummy! They’re spicy and addictive. I’ve eaten the chicken sausage all week long for dinner. It’s great! The barbecue pop chips tasted exactly like the real pop chips, but for less money. I love a good deal. Of course the truffle cheese was amazing. Can you really go wrong with truffle flavored anything? No, you can’t.
The only thing I did NOT like was the pre-made sushi. I’m not gonna lie, it was pretty bad. But, it was only $3.99, so it wasn’t a big loss.
I can’t wait to try the rest of the stuff I bought, soon! Now next time I go to Trader Joes, I’ll know what’s good.
After Trader Joes, we headed back to Tulsa. But, I’ll be in Dallas again this weekend for another baby shower for my sister. Can’t wait! Should be another great weekend!
