Derek and I left Tatum with my parents and made a quick adults only trip down to Dallas this weekend.  Our flight left late morning and with Dallas being an hour being us, we arrived mid afternoon there.  We settled in at the hotel then went over to the Reunion Tower to take in view over looking the city - something we'd never done before.  We walked around to a few sites downtown after that we hadn't done in a few years.

We got freshened up and headed out for a date night!  We chose one of Derek's favorite steakhouses, Nick and Sam's for dinner.   It's such a fun setting, always totally packed and delicious food (but huge portions!) 

Sunday morning we slept in and loved every second!  We got a small bite from room service then headed out to explore a little bit.  We've been to the Arboretum a few times but had never seen the Christmas stuff.  They'd put up the "12 Days of Christmas" display the day before so we picked to spend our morning checking that out - I wish the other Christmas things had been up!

We went over to Highland Park Village after to browse around and had lunch at Mi Cocina - we lucked out with a table outside since the weather was so nice.  The weather was low 70's so when we got back to the hotel we went to the pool for a little bit to read and relax - once the sun went behind a building it got a little chilly so we went back to the room to start getting ready for the game.

Sunday night we were going to the Cowboys Sunday Night Football Game against the Vikings.  The game wasn't until 7:30 but we left for the stadium a little before 5.  When we got there we spent a bit of time out in the party plaza watching performances, grabbing a drink and bite to eat.

We went into our seats early to watch warm ups and the pregame stuff.  The game was a good one and we enjoyed our night out.  The Cowboys ended up loosing right at the end, the play was right in front of us but we still had fun.

We didn't end up getting back to the hotel until late on Sunday night so we slept in on Monday.  We got a notification that our flight was delayed an hour so we took our time packing up then went downstairs for some breakfast before getting over to the airport and heading home.

  1. I so wish it would have worked out to meet up at the game! But that place was so insane, haha! We were walking around downtown Saturday - I am sure we were just by each other - so funny!
