All hail mother nature (no pun intended) for blessing Dallas with a Monday Snow Day. If Monday is spent snuggled in flannel sheets, then did Monday even happen? I wasn't able to get into work yesterday, along with the rest of Dallas. It was a ghost town out there. I'm not hating on Dallas, nor am I judging how a city could shut down from a relatively small winter storm. Dallas, unlike where i grew up in Virginia, just isn't equipped to handle snow and ice.... and why would they be? Why spend the money on tons of snow plows for a snow that happens maybe once a year? Alas, no one can safely travel on iced over, unplowed, unsalted roads. Better to just stay in the flannel sheets, no?
This weekend, before CB, everyone else in Dallas and I went to the grocery store, we managed to check a whole bunch of activities off our to-do list... starting with the Deep Ellum Wine Walk this past Thursday with Helene. If you happen to ever be in Dallas on the third Thursday of the month from 5pm-8pm, drop everything you have planned, bring $5, and go to Deep Ellum instead.
Three hours... Unlimited wine.... $5... Keep the Cup... #Boom.
One of the stops was Kettle Art Gallery, so our poses below were supposed to be "artsy". Duh, can't you tell what I'm doing here is artsy? Or nah....
Or how about this pose? Very different. Very artsy.
Then we found this very confusing contraption, we were not sure what it was for? We were told it was vintage... Anyone know if we were even close to using it correctly?
Awinederful time had by all!
On Friday, CB and I went to our first movie together... ever. I'm just not a big movie person.... aka, I'm not someone you should ever invite to bar team trivia. We saw 50 Shades Of Grey. I had only read about half of the book--- reading just isn't my thing, go ahead and judge me. Also, did I mention you probably shouldn't invite me to bar team trivia?
To sum up my thoughts: It was depressing and I would not see it again..... But I was very ready to go home afterwards..... get it? got it? good.
We had a very busy Saturday, and the secret was somehow leaked to Veenie, who was ready to go bright and early Saturday morning. I blame General, I told him not to tell her.
Joke was on her though, look at her face when I told her she wasn't coming to the brewery tour with us later that afternoon...
Baby steps, CB, baby steps...
We had plans to go to Granbury that evening to see CB's family, so we decided we might as well make the most of driving an hour and a half from Dallas, and check out Revolver's brewery tour! The original forecast called for 70 degrees and sunshine, and that is what I dressed for. Although I was unprepared and frozen, this brewery did not disappoint.
The band playing, Shotgun Friday, was the bomb too. We had seen them play at Magnolia Motor Lounge in Fort Worth once before, which I talked about in this post, so when we walked up and I spotted them on stage, I may or may not have screamed a little bit.
Four beers later we were feeling good! Next up, CB's brother was nice enough to take us out fishing on his boat. I was given this wonderful camo hat to wear, so I apologize in advance for the likelihood that you will be unable to spot me in any of these photos. *note to future Sarah: come better prepared with your own hat.
I did not catch this fish.
I did not catch any fish.
I was the only person in the boat not to catch a fish.
The fish just probably couldn't see me or my bait with that hat on....
Then the ice came.
Please allow Veenie to demonstrate how I spent the rest of my weekend....
