Road Trip

So a few weeks ago my bestie and I took a road trip.  A trip with no husband, no kids and no real plan other than shopping and to see the musical Wicked.  My bestie and I have been friends since high school.  We've been friends for at least 15 years. Some days it feels like less, some days I can't remember her not being in my life.  She's everything you could want in a bestie.  You can read all about her at The Melton Pot.

Let me preface the remainder of this post by stating that this trip was pre-blog days.  Not many pictures were taken so bear with me through the post.

We started our journey at Chic-fil-a.  It was a road trip, we didn't care about what we ate! 

We then made our way 212 miles south toward Dallas.  We had a mission.  We were on the prowl for a new dress for the show that night.  We headed to Northpark Center.  As usual LOFT did not disappoint.  Because of my mom, we both able to get a new dress without have to use any of our personal scrounged and saved money.  My mom is the best!  On the way to Dallas I stopped by and she slipped me some money and said "You girls have a good time."  I thought there was no better time to be had then shopping.  Northpark Center was nice. There was some stores I had never been to like Anthropologie.  By the way, I heart Anthropologie. 

We ate at a new place called Snappy Salads.  It was a great little salad spot-like a salad buffet. 

After an exhausting afternoon of shopping we checked into our hotel.  We ended up having to change rooms but here is the damage we did to our room in about 15 minutes. 

See that cute little hot pink clutch on the ottoman in one of the pictures above.  Yeah, I got that for $8!!  I forgot to mention we stopped at Sam Moon.  That place is the best.  I managed to spend a lot of money cheap jewelry but I came home with a boat load of jewelry!  So did my bestie! We got some good stuff!

After a quick wardrobe change and make-up touch up we don't clean up too badly!

That's my bestie.

That's me!

We had a great meal at a new Italian place called Fedora.  It was a super chic, super hip, superbly decorated, quaint little restaurant.  The food was amazing and the service couldn't have been better. We asked some sweet lady to take our picture while waiting on valet parking. 

For a couple of moms, we aren't too bad to look at, if I do say so myself.  See that black clutch my bestie is holding.  $8!  Listen to me people, go to Sam Moon!  Right now!

Finally we head to the show.  Have you seen Wicked?!  It is SO good.  My favorite musical by far.  Batman and I saw it last summer on Broadway.  He loved it too.  I think I could watch it every day.  I listen to the soundtrack just about every day!  If you haven't seen it, next time it is in your area check it out.  Young and old, man or woman, Wizard of Oz enthusiasts or not will enjoy it. 

My favorite part of the musical is toward the end.  It's the part where Elphoba and Glenda say their final good byes and make amends.  The song "For Good" is about how people in your lives make you who you are and you are better for it.  It gets me. Every. Single. Time.  I tear up. Okay, I cry.  I think about my bestie. How my life is better because of her. Because I have learned so much from her.  Because I can't imagine not sharing the most exciting, scary, sad, normal parts of my life with her.  She listens. She gets me. She is happy when I'm happy and sad when I'm sad.  She makes me a better person. I'm so glad I got to share that weekend with her. 

 Tabitha-thanks for being such a great friend.  You are my friend, confidant, sister and partner in crime.  I love ya!

The weekend ended with more shopping at the outlet in Allen, TX. We got some great deals and managed to pick something up for our girls and our guys. It was a great time but I missed my Batman and cutie too much!  Already planning the next trip!

More adventures to come!
