Dallas Bound

Suitcase{we heart it}

Early tomorrow morning, I am heading to the airport, hoppin on a plane, and flying south to Dallas!  My best friend's bachelorette party is this weekend, so I'm flying in a few days early to take care of party prep and a few other last minute things.  Dallas is where I grew up, so even though my parents no longer live there, going to Dallas always feels like I'm heading home in a way.  Here are a few of the things I'm looking forward to during my quick trip "home."

Celebrating my bff's upcoming marriage in a girl's only setting...
A weeknight slumber party with my dear friend Melissa...
(She was my big sis on my high school drillteam, that's how long we've been friends!)
Taking my new Kindle on its first trip...
(Thank you sweet Matt for the surprise present!)
Sunny and 70 degree weather...
(Take that Chicago winter!)
Enjoying an Auntie Anne's pretzel at the airport...
Possibly getting to see my parents and brother in Dallas for one of his playoff games...
Being there as my best friend takes her bridal portraits...
(and praying I can keep my emotions under control!)
Mexican food and margaritas with my sister...
Getting to wear a dress without tights
(which won't happen in Chicago for a few months!)
A Saturday afternoon of manis and pedis...
Flying first class on my return flight home...
(thanks Mom and Dad!)
Squeezing in some time at Northpark aka the shopping mecca of Dallas...
Long talks with good friends...
Trying Dish, a new Dallas hotspot...
(Their signature cocktails look so yummy!)
Coming home and having Matt meet me at the airport...
(always a great part of any trip)

Have a fabulous rest of the week, I'm sure I'll check in a time or two while I'm gone.  Bon voyage lovelies!

I haven't tried dish yet! Illume is a bit of a shock, but the menu for dish looks delish.

Wow, have fun!! I must admit, I'm sure that when I see any of my friends get their bridal portraits done, I will probably start bawling, haha!

I wore a dress without tights today--it was 50 in Ohio, so I braved it! Hope you have a fabulous trip and enjoy seeing your friends and family! :)
