Last weekend was the big wedding! It was SO much fun! We arrived in Dallas Wednesday evening and got to stay at B&C's new apartment. Thursday the guy's played golf then that evening played whirlyball(I have no idea what that is) and went bowling. The ladies went to eat dinner then went to Christine's lingerie shower. I had so much fun hanging out with all of Christine's friends! She has SO many close friends!!! Friday all of the ladies went to get mani & pedi's then had lunch at Breadwinner's cafe (YUMMY). Friday night was the rehearsal and dinner. They had the dinner at Maggiano's. The food was wonderful and all of the stories shared about them were even better! Mom & Mike came to Dallas Friday to keep the girls for me during all of the festivities. That was SO much help!!! Even before the wedding while we were waiting for the wedding to start there would have been NO WAY I would have been able to hold both of them still and quite for 20 minutes!!! The wedding was perfect. The reception was AMAZING! It was by far the nicest reception I have ever been to! It seriously looked like something off of TLC's Platinum Weddings!!!! When they arrived at the reception they immediately started their first dance. It started off slow but then the music changed and they danced to several different songs. It was hilarious!!! If you have ever seen TLC's Rock the Reception that was what it was like! We spent the rest of the evening eating (yummy food), dancing & visiting with friends and family. They had a candy bar for party favors. You got to fill a bag with whatever candy you wanted then they had stickers with a picture of them holding up a sign that said thank you to seal it with. Everything was wonderful!!!! I did not take one picture the entire weekend so I stole pictures that other people have posted!!!
So I was finally able to post pictures from New York. I am at Bryan's waiting on the guys so I had some time to spare. The first day we got there we went to a Yankee's game. It was great - a little cold but great! The second day it POURED all day! We had to quickly find some rain gear. We went to the today show and were on TV! We then walked around town and scoped everything out. The third day Trey went to the US Open all day and I was at the spa from 10:30am to 4:00pm. It was WONDERFUL!!!! I then shopped on my way back to the hotel. The fourth day we went to the statue of liberty and went to The Lion King that night. We also ate at AJ Maxwells for dinner (they are ranked the 6th best steak in the US). The Lion King was by far my most favorite part! It was amazing! The fifth day we went to eat the beast blueberry pancakes ever! We had to wait a while and it was about 45 minutes away from our hotel so then we went to the Empire State Building. That night we ate at Kittichai which is a Thai restaurant. That was our first time to eat that kind of food but we both loved it. It was a very swanky place! The last day we had to search around for a suitcase for Trey since his broke then we ate at Bubba Gumps while watching the end of the US Open. The trip was wonderful! The travel was not so good because the Atlanta airport was closed because of bad weather so we were stuck on the runway for 3 hours. When we finally made it to Atlanta we had to stay there overnight because we missed our flight. We finally made it home a day late around noon.
Our SS class had a 4th of July party at Ruston Brick (which is now across the interstate from Temple). Temple always has a huge 4th of July program with fireworks. We were in the perfect spot! The kids played in the kiddie pools the entire time. It was wonderful! Trey & I actually got to visit with our friends while the kids played.
We took the girls to have their first haircut today. They both did GREAT! I had her cut Alyssa's first because I knew if Mallory saw her sit there then she would do the same thing. I was right! They just got a little trim. I don't know why I was dreading it so much - it was nothing!
