a trip, a wedding, and some snow...

well, we are back home, thank goodness! we had a great time in dallas and we literally did not stop the entire time we were there. we met my great friends, andrea and cari, for lunch as soon as we left the airport at an amazing restaurant, pappasitas for some yummy fajitas. mmmmm. seriously, it's one of my favorite restaurants in texas.

then, we headed to one of my favorite shopping locations in the metroplex, sam moon.

after lots of fun shopping, we headed to a fun place i'd never been called yogurtville. it was such a FUN little shop and the yogurt was so yummy. i had yogurt with strawberries, blackberries, and cheesecake pieces.

after yogurt, it was time to head to prestonwood for the wedding rehearsal and then on to the rehearsal dinner after that. we had such a fun time and by the time we made it back to the hotel, we were ready to head to bed! the next morning, andrea, cari, and i had so much fun together doing very fun, girly things. hair appointments, fun lunch, and mani/pedis. then, it was off to the church to get ready for the wedding.

the bride, getting ready :)

waiting after pictures for the ceremony to start...i think that's the hardest part!

the ceremony was beautiful. congratulations, kevin and stephanie!! here are some pics from the reception:

mr. and mrs. kevin paul AND mr. and mrs. joel alley...yay for newlyweds!

cari, me, and andrea...

sunday morning we worshipped at prestonwood and then had lunch at my favorite, favorite mexican restaurant in dallas...chuys. after lunch, we stopped by sprinkles (of course!) and then headed off to the airport.

after a great lunch and sprinkles, we headed off to the airport...hoping that our flight would not be cancelled because of the snow that was supposed to arrive in charlotte sunday evening. our plane did take off but it was quite the journey getting home! we circled over charlotte for an hour and finally landed at 10 pm (our flight was supposed to have landed at 8:30). let me tell you, the airport was total choas. thankfully, we made it home :) the roads were crazy but joel is an amazing driver and the Lord completely watched over us.

so, this morning, we had a lot of fun enjoying the snow...

sorry this was so long...but we packed LOTS of fun stuff in 3 days!!
