Unforgettable Anniversary Weekend

On Thursday, February 25th, Tom and I celebrated 4 years of marriage. To celebrate, we took a little weekend trip down to Texas. After work on Thursday we drove down to Grapevine where we stayed at the Gaylord Texan (GT). I first learned of the GT when we stayed across the street from it at the Great Wolf Lodge with Tom's family during OU/TX weekend last fall. When we started planning our anniversary trip we researched the GT and Tom found a deal called the Unforgettable Anniversary Weekend (stay 1 night get the 2nd night free in the month of your anniversary). So we decided to take advantage of this offer. I've never been to Las Vegas before but from what I've seen and heard, the GT reminded me of a Vegas hotel. It has a lot of vegetation and landscaping inside with a mini riverwalk mimicked after the one in San Antonio.

We really enjoyed our stay at this lovely resort and our quality time together in the car and running around DFW together. I count myself as blessed that I was able to marry my best friend and most favorite person on this earth.

On Saturday, we met up with Joel, one Tom's BYX friends from college. We drove out to Fort Worth to see the house he bought last year and then we went to a little burger dive known as Fred's in the downtown Fort Worth area called SO 7th (that stands for South of 7th Street, I think). Then we walked to a gelato place called Paciugo in that same area. It was yummy!

I thought I'd show you two of my finds while we were in Texas, because of course we shopped while we were there. And believe it or not, we mainly shopped for Tom. Due to Tom's encouragement, I bought this black hat in a store at the shops at Watters Creek (an outdoor mall and entertainment center). It was cold and rainy that Friday while we were shopping outside at Watters Creek. While I was browsing in a store that caught my eye, Tom brought me this hat and told me to try it on. I liked it and he really liked it, so it was a keeper. I ended up wearing it out of the store and the rest of the evening since the rain ruined my hair. It also helped keep my head warm, so it's practical right?

I had been wanting a cute headband so I had my eyes peeled all weekend for one and I found one! You may have noticed it in some of the pics before.



Hopefully I can pull off my trendy new accessories... :)
