Dallas Weekend Getaway

I went to visit my husband for a couple of weeks in Oklahoma where he is currently in training to learn how to fly a new airplane.  On the way there, we met in Dallas for the weekend and I must say it was love at first visit!  Dallas is my kind of place: great food, gorgeous neighborhoods and endless shopping!  And to top it off the entire city is pretty much pet friendly =) We were able to take Miles almost everywhere including lunch spots that offered outdoor seating.  We will definitely add Dallas to our travel plans in the future.  Next time I would like to set aside a day to visit the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum, the Arboretum, and maybe enjoy another Hot Stone Spa Manicure.  Yea, Dallas pretty much rocks!

Party Guest List

Baby girl is blessed to have so many friends and family in her life that were present to celebrate HER.  She was prayed for years before she was ever conceived and is already loved by so many!  We were thankful to have those dearest to us all together on such a memorable night.

It's a GIRL!!!!

I wasn't planning on having a reveal party but after a little convincing I decided to go ahead and make our big announcement with friends and family all in one place.  And I'm really glad I did.  After all, it was our daughter's first party!  It made me realize the importance of celebrating our life and the gifts and blessings that God graciously gives us.  And you, baby girl, are one of the sweetest gifts we have ever been given and we can't wait to meet you.  You have already changed our lives forever.
