Weekend Recap 9.6.16… Friends in Town!

Happy Tuesday guys!  It sure does feel like a Monday, but I am glad it is already Tuesday.  I hope you all had a fun and relaxing Labor Day Weekend!  Ours was a definitely a weekend for the books!  

Friday night our friends from Cincinnati arrived in town and we went to a casual dinner at Yucatan, which I have been wanting to try for a while now.  I got a rice bowl with shrimp and it was really good.  Everyone loved their meals and we had a great time catching up with our friends.  After dinner, we had a lazy night at home just watching tv and playing catchphrase before calling it a night.  

Saturday morning the four of us grabbed a dog (we were watching two over the weekend) and headed out for a run.  It was entertaining and everyone we passed thought we were in a dog parade. 😉 After a quick change, we packed some drinks and snacks and headed out to the boat for a day of fun in the sun.  There was a lot of lounging…

And the boys all took a turn wakeboarding…

We met up with our friend/neighbor who has a boat on the same lake as us and had a blast just hanging out.  The weather was perfect and the water was super refreshing!

After a full day at the lake, we headed home to get ready for dinner.  We had reservations at a new-to-us restaurant called Amberjax.  It is a seafood restaurant in an area of town called Trinity Groves.

This is the only picture of our group that I had from the entire night… the food was just too darn good to take lots of pictures because we were busy eating.

I started with a house salad and added some of the ahi tuna from my husband’s appetizer, which hit the spot!

Then I had the Mahi Mahi and it was fantastic!!  SO tasty! It was topped with a pineapple salsa that was to die for!

After dinner we went to Louie Louie’s Piano Bar for a bit before heading home.  

Sunday morning we all completed a workout (@MooreNutritious) before showering up and getting ready for Top Golf!   We always take our Dallas visitors to Top Golf because it is always a blast.. even if you are not good at golf! I may (or may not) have a decent golf stance, but don’t let that fool you, I am horrible.  I think I whiffed it about 10+ times.  I came for the mimosas, not the golf. 😉

I got this new dress from Forever 21 the other day and just love it.  It is lightweight and super comfortable and best of all, I think it was somewhere between $10-15!

Love this guy!

After Top Golf, we headed to Truck Yard for a drink with our friends and neighbor.  

We had a fun time just chatting and listening to music.  After a couple hours, we headed home for taco night at our house then spent the rest of the night just hanging out on our rooftop playing games!

We had such an incredible weekend with our friends and are so grateful they came to visit.  Living far from family and friends can be really difficult sometimes, but we are very fortunate to have had a lot of visitors this year, which always makes me realize how lucky we are to have such amazing people in our life.  This week is a short one as we head out of town tomorrow for a wedding this coming weekend.  I am so excited to catch up with old friends and meet two of my friends babies that were born in the last year!  I hope to check in this week so I will see you soon!

Questions:

  1. What was the highlight of your Labor Day weekend?
  2. Do you have a Top Golf near you?  Ever played?
  3. Do you have any weddings to attend this fall?
