Girls Weekend

Rachel and I decided a few months ago that we needed a weekend away...just us. It didn't take long for us to pick a date and plan. Last weekend, we stayed at the Hotel ZaZa in Dallas and had an absolute blast. Rachel has two boys: Joaquin (8 months) and Elijah (20 months) so she certainly has her hands full back in Austin.

It felt like a total escape. I can't count the number of times we would just look at each other and say, "is this real?!?"

We went to Avanti (Italian) for dinner on Friday night and enjoyed live classical guitar and jazz. We both got pedicures at the spa, watched a movie, ordered room service as much as humanly possible and just had fun catching up. Rachel is an uber talented photographer and snapped a few pics over the weekend.

Look girls-- I don't have bedhead. HA!

Rachel, I love you so much! Thank you for being such an amazing friend. I love your boys and Ian is the luckiest man in the world. Of course you are pretty lucky too.
We kept talking about how "wealthy" we are-- not b/c of spa days, or hotel visits...but because of our amazing friendships, selfless and adoring husbands, children and our relationship with God. We are so blessed.
