January-not usually my favorite month, however this year, January was fantastic! We had a wonderful time at New Years, and then the three weekends that followed New Years weekend, were packed with fun.
We started off the weekend by celebrating Madeline's birthday! I can't believe she is 18!
We celebrated her birthday by eating at Tilman's in Fort Worth! Oh.my.word. Seriously. Go eat there: eat an appetizer, eat beef, and order dessert. I seriously wish I had taken pictures of the table side smores that you cook yourself! The food is fabulous and the atmosphere is really neat.
The next day, Mason and I went to Northpark to buy our Christmas presents...We hadn't done any presents for each other this year, so we shopped a little. While we were there we ate at one of my favorite places to eat in Dallas..La Duni. I love any chance I get to eat there.
My dear friend Lauryn came to visit, and it was so refreshing to just have some time with girl friends! Celebrity Bakery, loads of shopping, and LOTS of talking! I loved it, and I was so glad JuliAnne met up with us for most of the day Saturday!
The only picture from the weekend, I love these two!
That weekend we also went bowling with our small group, and thankfully I didn't make a complete fool of myself. I actually bowled over 70. For me, that was a success.
I can't get my camera cord to upload pictures right now, so I have no pics, but my brother Patrick and his girlfriend Elyse came to visit, and we had a wonderful time hanging out! Plus Elyse and I enjoyed pedicures and shopping at Lilly Pulitzer, where we both bought bright blue dresses with ginko leaves all over them...I think we are going to get along just great! :)
I'm thankful that this month has been so full of fun times with friends and family!
