Chelse's birthday was just a few days before they came out to Texas, so Ryley and I arranged to have a little birthday cake for when they flew in. Oh, Chelse is pregnant with the first baby!!! So, of course I had to get something for the new baby. :)
Here's our tribute to Chelse's 28th birthday!
We had a little time to kill between lunch and our evening plans, so I had Choltz and Ryley help me pick out some Christmas presents for Sean. We had to take a stop at Brookstone, who doesn't love this store?!
Haha, no words...
I could have sat there for hours...
Unfortunately Sean had class the weekend that they came, which was a total bummer. It was really the only time it worked out for all four of us. So, we made the best of it and met up with Sean at the Mav's game.
I usually refuse to seat hop, but luckily for Sean I got outvoted this time. He always wants to move down to better seats, and it gives me serious anxiety. These were our old seats, clearly the next ones are a little better...
Coincidently, the Mavericks were playing the Jazz. The Mavs may or may not have won.... :)
Sean was a little tired that night, and he was acting pretty delirious after we got home. I had to document how ridiculous he looked. Sorry Sean, some pictures are just too funny not to take.
That weekend was the 50 year anniversary of the President JFK shooting in Dallas. They have a museum downtown, so we thought we would check it out on Saturday. I was so mad that the weather was bad! The weather is always so warm here in November, and is always freezing in Utah. The day before they flew in it was 70 degrees here! We got a cold front and a bunch of rain the entire time they were in Texas. Boo...I was so sad, I really wanted them to have a taste of the glorious warm weather here! Lame.
These are some pictures of the grounds around the JFK memorial.
Choltzie and me at Dealy Plaza.
There were tons of people there, I didn't think we were going to have to wait as long as we did to get in the museum. People flew in from all over just to be there, crazy.
"The grassy knoll" where one of the conspiracy theories claims the shooter came from.
Another conspiracy theory claims this is where the shooter was sitting, up in the window looking down on the street.
After the musuem, we met up with Sean in Plano to go to Studio Movie Grill. Everyone has raved about it since we moved here, so we thought we would try it out. Catching Fire came out that weekend, so we saw that. It's a cool concept...they feed you dinner while you sit down and watch a movie, but honestly I think it was a little overrated. I may have felt differently about it if our waiter hadn't completely forgotten about us, and we didn't get our food until everyone else in the theater had finished eating. But I threw a "mini fit" and got both ours and Chelse and Ryley's meals comped. So, I felt pretty good about it in the end! Free dinner is free dinner, people.
I am so happy that Chelse and Ryley made the effort to come see us. Seriously guys, we love you. Thanks for always being such amazing friends! It makes me wish we lived by you so so much! I get to see Chelse in a few weeks for the day while I'm in Utah on a ski trip with my brothers, and I cannot wait to see that cute baby mama! Thanks for coming guys, we love you!!!
