Miami + Dallas Trip

What a weekend! Usually when we travel sans kiddos I come back rested and refreshed. Sadly, we were so on the go, I needed yesterday just to catch up! Don't get me wrong, we certainly got caught up on some sleep and indulged in fantastic food and tasty mocktails, and there really is nothing better than lounging by the pool!

We spent the first part of our trip in Miami staying at the Fontainebleau Hotel. It was absolutely gorgeous! The pool scene was interesting and people watching was at its finest. Let's just say I was happy the bump and I had access to our floor's private pool. B and I felt like we had the place to ourselves! Sleeping in, room service, spa treatments and oceanfront dining made for the perfect retreat. Sadly our time in Miami was cut short as we headed to Dallas for the ACM awards.

This was technically a work trip for B but I was happy to tag along. B had to play in the Lifting Lives golf tournament Saturday, so I was fortunate to hook up with my mom for a wonderful girls day! My dad was out of town, and I hated missing him, but it was so nice for my mom and I to catch up, dine and of course, shop just the two of us! I bid farewell to my mom and met back up with B at our hotel. Sunday was another treat to sleep in and brunch late. Dallas has the best brunch spots! The rest of the afternoon was spent relaxing and primping for the big awards. We made it to the stadium with plenty of time to soak up all the VIP area had to offer including the best truffle mac and cheese and mini cupcakes. Who needs an open bar when you're eating for two! We settled in for the awards and our seats were fabulous. I'm not the biggest country music fan, but I do love me some old school country. I loved seeing George, Reba, Martina and Garth. The highlight was definitely shaking hands and thanking the military folks for their service as they walked by us during Garth's performance. Talk about emotional! 

After a late night bite, it was back to the hotel to hit the sack before our early flight home. We were definitely tired but so ready to see our little men! I love traveling just B and me. It is so good for the soul. But it always makes me miss George and Jude. I'm just going to try and remember that the next time a tantrum occurs!
