Fort Worth/Dallas Trip Part Deaux!

On Monday, Jackie had to work, but Brad, the hubby, my brother, and I went and had lunch at Panda Express! I love that place, but glad I can't eat it very often. So very unhealthy! 

Then my brother and I took off and headed to the Container Store. If you are a closet OCD and love organization then this is the store for you! I LOVE the place! If I had a house and not a stinky apartment, my entire house would be done with things from the container store! 

We then hit up Central Market. I really wish we had a place like this near us. I loved looking at all the organic, healthy foods! I bought a Twisted Fruit (yes I know they are for kids, but it looked so tasty!), some Almond milk, and finally found the Vita Coconut water I have been wanting to try!
I got the one with Pineapple to try! Unfortunately... I left it all at my brothers in Dallas. He will be coming home in a few weeks and will bringing it with him, so I will tell you what I think of it at a later date. :)

The hubby and I have been wanting to try to make our own sushi so we bought this as well! Now we are ready to get started!


I'm sure I have not stated before, but I am a total Mac girl! I have an iPhone (where most of my pics come from), and a MacBook for my blogging! :) So when my brother said he wanted to go to the Mac store, I said Let's Go!
I decided to take a pic of my blog on an iPad! I would love to have one, but maybe in a few years. I am just enjoying my MacBook right now! :)

Tuesday was our last day. We woke up, packed everything up, and headed to meet my brother for lunch before we left. 



The 3 of us met up with my cousin and her hubby at a cute little place called La Madeleine
This was the letter given to us for our food.
That is the perfect letter for us, because our last name starts with W! 
I got the half Chicken Parisien, cup of french onion soup, and the pasta salad. It was delicious! And I once again, ate it to fast before I took pictures :)


After lunch, we went to a place called Fat Straws.
It's a place that sells Bubble Tea. 
 If you look closely you can see the dark "bubbles" in the bottom. There are actually Tapioca bubbles. Reminds me of a gummy bear. Very chewy. This is why you use the Fat Straws! You have to suck up the Tapioca bubbles! I got the Thai Tea Milkshake with bubbles! (one on the right). The hubby just got the Thai Tea. I tasted it, but I like the milkshake better, of course! :)

 I highly recommend the place!

Afterwards, we headed out for our long 6 hour trip home. It was 4pm by this time, but we surprisingly didn't hit any traffic. It usually does not take us 6 hours, but when you have 2 puppies in the car, you have to stop and let them go to the potty every so often. :)
It was a great trip! Brad and Jackie are great hosts! And it was great to see my brother, and my cousin! :) Can't wait to go visit again! :)

  2. That fat straws place sounds really interesting! Never heard of it before.

    And I so would love an Ipad. It would make getting work done easier since I stay at home with the baby girl. I could sit with her eve more, but still be able to work.

  3. That Vita coconut water sounds quite interesting. I'll have to look around and see if I can find it around here. Your trip looks like it was a lot of fun! :)

Big News!

One of the reasons I haven't been blogging much is because we just bought our very first house!!! Isn't it beautiful!
We don't move in until next week, but buying a house has taken a lot of time! I've been packing our apartment up a little at a time, but we still have A LOT to do!
It's hard to move with a toddler, because you don't want to shake their world up too much. They need their usual toys and to be able to find their favorite shoes amongst the boxes. Taking it slow and moving a little at a time just seemed like the best option.
We are going from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 4 bedroom home!  With a backyard! Down the street from a park! We are going to have so much space!  Being able to go outside in the back and down the street to the park is a huge deal for me!  Sophie and I LOVE being outside! I am so excited! I just can't even describe it! lol :)
And that's not all of the big news!
I also got a job!
It is an office job, where I will be doing t…

Some of my Favorite Things!

I just wanted to share some of my favorite Running gear right now! :)
I'll start with the one thing that everyone knows I already love...
My BOBRevolution SE!
I've been using it for a a few weeks now and I'm still in Love! I'm not sure how I've lived without it these past 15 months! You can read my BOB "review" here! :)

My newest favorite thing are my hotpink Locklaces!

They are elastic shoelaces that  tighten by a "lock". They make it easy for me to just slip my shoe on and go! They are also wonderful because I have had issues with my shoelaces being too tight on the top of my foot and these fix that problem! No more pain! I wish I had known about these forever ago! I will have them on all of my future running shoes!
I love their moto!
Now onto something that I think every single person who is active outside should own. Pepper Spray.
In this case the Personal Saver and the Wrist Saver.
This i the Personal Saver I carry it on my keychain everyw…
