Dallas Visit

September 19, 2015 — 4 Comments

My daughter and I had chatted about me coming to visit her in Dallas this weekend. The trip was a bit up in the air, and then it all came together, so I’m here! Thursday morning left no time for blogging. Now I’ll try for a short one. I’m in bed with Tess right now drinking coffee and playing on our computers looking at recipes on Pinterest, outfits on Pinterest, trying to book a massage today, and enjoying good girly chat too.

I was at the airport by 6:30 pm on Thursday for a 7:30 flight, then I got bumped to the 9:30 flight, that actually took off at 11:30, which landed me in Dallas at 1:07 am. It was a lovely evening at the airport watching the Chiefs lose.

Friday we slept in and it was so nice to have nothing we had to do. After coffee and a lot of nothing, we walked to the grocery store up the street for breakfast and a coffee outside.

After that, we took a 4 mile walk on the Katy Trail with Manuel, Tess’ boyfriend.

Then…lunch stop at the Katy Trail Ice House. I love this place. All sorts of people there, some in work clothes, some in work out clothes, lots of dogs and a great view of the trail. Cold Beer too.

After a long afternoon of chatting outside, we headed home for a quiet night.

We made pizza’s and salad at home, and watched the Royals lose in extra innings. It’s been a disappointing sports weekend.

Today? We don’t feel like doing anything, and it’s kinda nice.

Here are yesterday’s eats…..

 

Breakfast – 3 PPV

Fruit and Yogurt and a Tall Nonfat Latte outside at the grocery store.

Weight Watcher’s Points Plus

I can eat 26 PPV a day.

I have an allowance of 49 extra points that I can dip into throughout the week if I choose.

I should drink a minimum of 6 (8 oz) glasses of water each day.

My Weight Watcher Week Begins on Friday’s

This is What I Will Accomplish in 2015

I will go no more than two days in a row without exercise. (I’ve done “two a day’s” to make up)

I will track every single day of the entire year. (I’ve only NOT tracked a few weekends this year.)

I will run in a minimum of six 5K’s. Three down, three to go!

    OMGosh…that was so yummy! Need to recreate at home!

  3. That salad you had for dinner looks delish!

  4. My sister lived in Grand Prairie, Texas many years ago.
    I would visit her and I remember it as a nice area of the country.
    I was in my early twenties and what I really remember was all the great malls–lol.
    Oh the great food.
    Hope your weekend is filled with great memories that last a life time.
