Weekend Recap 2.11.18 Weekend in Dallas with a Surprise Visitor!

Good morning!!!!  How was your weekend??  I got back yesterday morning from a long weekend in Dallas visiting my sister, her boyfriend, and their pups!  It was such a fun weekend that went by way too fast.  

My husband goes on an annual ski trip with his friends so I decided I would visit my sister while he was away.  After I booked my flight, I suggested to my mom that she should come with me and surprise my sister.  She agreed and although we had the hardest time ever keeping the secret from my sister, we pulled it off!!  We headed to the airport on Thursday evening and after we got our bags, I headed out to my sister’s car at the airport.  Then I told her she needed to turn back and that is when she saw my mom waiting a few doors down!  It was the best Surprise  ever!!!  I uploaded the video to my youtube page if you want to see it!! 

Little Murphy, my sister and her boyfriend’s puppy.  He is absolutely wild and so much fun. 🙂


On Friday morning, my sister, her boyfriend, and I had plans to go to a 7am workout class at Beyond.  It was SO hard.  Half of the class is on the curved, self-propelled treadmills and half of the class is strength training intervals.  We were all drenched by the end.  


After our workout we headed home to shower and get ready for the day.  We ran a few errands, got our nails done and then did a LOT of shopping.  🙂 



My sister made us some yummy quinoa salads for lunch and then we went to the dog park once my sister’s boyfriend got off work.  It was a beautiful day out on Friday! 


Little Murphy always up to something.


On Friday night we decided to stay in for dinner.  My sister and her boyfriend made the most delicious salmon and veggies for us. 


We played a few games of Spite & Malice.  Have yall played this before?  It is one of our favorites.  


After a few games, we headed to a nearby frozen yogurt place for a sweet treat!  My mom and I split a chocolate froyo with some yummy toppings. 🙂 


On Saturday morning, my sister, her boyfriend, and I went to  One Lagree for a workout class.  It is on the mega reformer and it was SO hard!! It was my first time and I really loved it, but I am really feeling it today still!  I am so sore!



After our workout we decided to just take it easy the rest of the day since the weather was cold and rainy.  My mom, sister, and Max went to get doughnuts and I lounged with the pups and read my book. 🙂 


Me and little Otis!



My mom brought me this book on Thursday to read during our flights and I finished it on our Sunday morning flight.  I don’t think I have ever read a book that fast.  It was such an easy read and it was really good!! I highly recommend it! 


Murphy loves to lay on top of Otis.  Whenever Otis lays down, Murphy has to lay on him.  It is so funny.  


Saturday afternoon was spent cleaning out my sister’s closet.  We got rid of a bunch of clothes to donate and I also got some new clothes of out it. 🙂 


Saturday night we had dinner reservations, but decided to cancel and order take out instead.  My mom and Max got pizza and my sister and I got pok.  I got tuna with mango, edamame, garlic, carrots, kelp noodles and kale.  It was amazingggg!


After dinner my sister, her boyfriend and I went to meet my sister’s friend for a quick drink to celebrate her birthday.  I forgot to take any pictures, but it was fun catching up with them!  After that we headed back home to watch a movie with my mom and hang with the doggies!!! 

I had such a fun time in Dallas hanging with my sister and her boyfriend and their cute pups!!  I really miss living so close to them, but it is nice being just a short plane ride away!!  I am already counting down the days until we head to Dallas for both of their grad school graduations in May (they are both smartie pants!!).  

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend and have a nice week ahead!!

  1. I appreciate your love of salmon!
    1. Let’s see…the highlight of my weekend was hiking in the sunshine with my boyfriend on Saturday. We had a picnic at the beach after, followed by a fun, local wine tasting.
    2. I teach yoga at a studio that offers Hot Power Pilates and Yoga Sculpt. Aside from yoga, Hot Pilates is my favorite workout class to attend, but I do love my sculpt. I favor low-impact workout classes that are fun and feel good 🙂
    3. I am lactose intolerant, and prefer the straight up chocolate to fro yo 🙂


    1. Thank you for stopping by the blog!! Oh salmon is my favorite. 🙂 Your weekend sounds perfect.. a hike, a picnic and wine? lovely!! I have done a lot of hot yoga classes, but I haven’t tried hot pilates so that will definitely be on the top of my list to try!


  2. Yayy! You had a chance to go back to Dallas! And SO fun that you made it a surprise with your mom joining. I am psyched to watch the Youtube video. Sheesh louise they have your number- that salmon looks fabulous!! I have never heard of Lagree, but will be looking into it for sure. Thank you for the book suggestion! I am always looking for one.

    – I worked all weekend, but a highlight would be I learned a ton of new skills on the floor. It was super hard, but I feel confident in what I learned
    – Favorite froyo toppings : Cookie dough
    – Workout class: ahhh I’m so bad about going to classes. Lately I’ve wanted to try spinning though to give it a go!

    1. It was such a fun trip to Dallas with my mom! I love trying new fitness classes with my sister or a friend… it just seems less intimidating if you have someone to go with. I need to try some new ones in Nashville. That is awesome that you learned some new skills on the floor this weekend. I work with nurses in my current job and am always in awe of them and asking them a million questions. Thanks for stopping by girlfriend!! xoxoxo

      1. I’ll need to find someone to go with me then! Awww, that’s awesome to hear! ❤ Thank you for your sweet words for us nurses! I'm curious- what does your current job look like?! I probably missed it in another post!

      2. I work for an IT company and we do patient education on birth control through telehealth (video conferencing) for women of child bearing age that are either using/abusing opioids or in treatment for opioid use. We then help them (transportation and costs associated with the birth control) get on the birth control method of their choice. Our goal is to prevent NAS babies. I do some of the education and work in the field with our partnering clinics. The other educators are nurses. 🙂
