We moved in March to Roanoke, TX. We are 15 minutes from Grapevine, TX. So with the cost of gas going mad crazy this summer. We opted to do a stay-cation instead of a vacation..
We still ended up driving all over town but we got to see family and friends. And still do family things.
We started are stay-cation on Thursday and I got to plan the day. First we started by going to see The Sisterhood of the Travel Pants 2. My poor hubby was the only man in the theater.. But well worth. After that we head to The Cheese Cake Factory at South lake Town Center to split fried mac & cheese ball and all I can say is OMY GOOSH!!!! YUMMY!!! The we split the 30Th anniversary cheese cake..
Friday was hubby's day. We went to see The Dark Knight. I would say not Heath Ledger's best role but still a loss of a great actor. We then had to kick it in gear and head to Mabank for one of my best friends daughter's 15 birthday dinner which was a two hour drive. We picked up Brandon and head to Mabank. But not before making a stop a the Funky Monkey in Keller, Tx to pick up a gift for her daughter and a anniversary gift for dad to give to mom for there 35Th anniversary on Sunday.
Saturday - Was Brandon's day to pick something to do. Early start pick up Grandma in Oak Cliff then headed to Frisco to meet my husband's cousin and her kids at Ikea. We had breakfast for anyone who has never been to Ikea it is an all day trip. We had 99 cent breakfast what a bargain! Then we set out to make our purchase. We got our new living room entertainment cabinet.. A rug for the bathroom.. And my mother-in-law got a new buffet for her dinning room..
Then it was off to strikes with all the boys. Guess this was my punishment for the movie.. We bowl then my hubby won my a frog that Parker (my shitzu) now thinks is his new baby.
Then it was back home to rest and relax until tomorrow.
Sunday was my day with my family. We head to mom & dad's (Deb-AKA NANA & Cat Daddy)for a BBQ Anniversary dinner with my brother & his family. Then we hit the snow cone stand. I got a coconut snow cone with vanilla ice cream in the bottom. YUMMY!!!! Roby got black Cherry & Brandon got DP.
Back to work on Monday to some AWESOME NEWS.. I got a promotion at work to Lead of a new unit. So the perfect end to a stay-cation.
