Birthday Getaway


When Mike asked what I wanted to do for my birthday this year, I told him that I wanted to just getaway for a night.  It isn't often that we are able to vacation anywhere without our kids, so we planned ahead and set up a babysitting schedule, booked our hotel room and made it happen!  We decided to go to Dallas since it is only about three hours away and there is plenty to do.  Mike found this fun hotel called The NYLO which featured New York loft style rooms.  The above photo was from our room.  It was very peaceful and different from anywhere we have stayed before. Three other couples came with us on the trip and all booked rooms at the same hotel, which made the trip even more fun!  We went bowling, out out eat, shopping (had to hit IKEA), and spent a lot of time just hanging out at the hotel room sharing stories and talking.  It was exactly the fun, yet relaxing weekend I had hoped for!  And my kids did great with my dad and my aunt (big thank you to them for helping take care of them while we were away!).

I hope you all had a great weekend too!
