Texas style, y’all. And far less dramatic than any movie.
I’m back to blogging more regularly after a little vacation home, and then a long weekend in Dallas where Jeff and I’s parents finally met! Ekk! Who am I kidding, it went great. There was basically no chance for failure since we’re both lucky to have some pretty wonderful parents.
In all honesty, we had this weekend planned well before Jeff put a ring on it, but now that we’re doing the whole wedding planning thing we decided it was perfect timing for our respective parents to meet. Since Jeff’s parents graciously offered to host, we made our way to The Lone Star State for a weekend of eating, sight-seeing, lounging, and more eating (paused the wedding diet for a few days).
^^See what I mean? My future hubby (I think I like that better than fiance) worked all day on those ribs and they were good. When in Texas, eat as the Texans do!^^
^^These two, they were two peas in a pod the whole weekend. I’ve got a whole post on their love connection coming later this week. It’s too cute to miss.^^
Since dating, Jeff and I’ve been to Dallas many times, but this was the first time we paid a visit to Dealey Plaza, site of President Kennedy’s Assassination.
While a somber moment in history, the historical significance got to me. Jeff and I kept remarking that even though we weren’t alive at the time, we could feel the emotion as we read about all the history of that day in November.
^^As you can barely see in the background the white “X” marks the precise spot of the Kennedy Assassination, and when we finished taking this photo I turned to Jeff and exclaimed “why didn’t you smile?” Jeff: “I don’t know, do you smile at something like that?” Fair point.^^
What a great visit. Now we’re all really ready for the wedding. Oh wait, we’ve got a little time for that. Whew.
