Maggie Does Dallas

As I mentioned in my last post, Brandon and I brought my little sister, Maggie, back to Dallas with us to spend part of her Spring Break. 

We made the 3 hour and 45 minute drive from Livingston to Dallas in the pouring rain. Sweet girl didn't even make it the 45 minutes to Huntsville. 

When we arrived in Dallas, Maggie went with me to the car wash, to fill up Brandon's car at the gas station, and to the grocery store. I sent this picture to my Mom who said, "Let the sugar coma begin!" 

True that! I let her have whatever sweets she wanted. :) As my Dad said today, "You're worse than a grandmother!" Ha! 

I made supper and we watched Bride Wars, then hit the hay.

Monday morning, I took Maggie {in our jammies} to Krispy Kreme's drive-thru. Mmm, mmm! 

We got dressed and took off for a day of fun! 

First, we went to the Dallas World Aquarium

She loved it! 

Then, we had lunch at Chipotle. She told me she wanted to eat at places they "don't have in Livingston." I don't blame her at all! 

After lunch, we headed over to NorthPark to visit Build-A-Bear {she got a cat and named her "Dallas"}, do a little shopping and saw The Lorax in 3D. 

We came home, took a walk and fed the ducks at the lake, then had supper and watched Puss in Boots

We were so tired from the day and slept hard

This morning, I made cinnamon rolls and we had chocolate milk. Mmmm! I love when Maggie is here because I get to eat this yumminess on a Tuesday morning! :)

After breakfast, we threw on clothes, picked up my friend Jessica and went to Hawaiian Nail Bar for manicures and pedicures. 

Maggie got groovy green nails with a flower...

...and bright red nails. 

I opted for a coral pedicure and a grayish-purple manicure. 

Then, we all ate at Chick-Fil-A and dropped Jessica off at her house. 

We came back home, got dressed, and got Maggie packed. 

Before we hit the road, she begged for frozen yogurt from Yumilicious. And how could I say no?! 

We then hit the road for Fort Worth, where I dropped her off with my Aunt Timm and Uncle Katherine {my mom's brother and his wife}; she's spending the night with our cousins Annie, Jake, Norah and Lillian. My Aunt Tina {my mom's sister} is picking up Maggie and Annie tomorrow for the rest of the week. 

And how sweet is this note she left me on our fridge while I was getting dressed today?! 

It says, "I love you. Thank you Sissy, from Maggie. I <3 you. I will miss you. You are the best sister ever! It was fun. I liked spending my Spring Break with you. It was the best Spring Break ever!" 

I almost started crying on my drive back to Dallas because I missed her so much! It's too quiet in my house right now. 

I'm currently catching up on a little work, folding clothes and getting ready to go to Washington, D.C. tomorrow for work. It never ends! :)

Happy Tuesday!
