Weekend Continued......

Weekend continued:

Sunday morning.....you know how it is when you wake up in strange surroundings.   You have to kinda lay there and try to get your bearings. This my friends, is when you are allowed to make those ugly stretching faces that no one ever gets to see!   UGLY!

   Stretch those lips.....stretch that face!

Focus, focus, focus!!


I was busy getting my early morning stretches in, when suddenly, I hear this noise.......like someone is entering our hotel room.   I had no idea that I could move that fast, but I sat up in that bed as if I had just been shot out of a cannon.

Of course....I sent Sam into the other room to check!  Evidently someone had the wrong room and was trying to use their key to open the door.....SKEERED ME!!!

********
Just so happens that our High School Cheerleader Team was going to be in the same area........performing in competition.  Tyler's NEW friend.....is a cheerleader so he was coming up to watch her perform.  The competition was being held at the "Dr. Pepper Arena"  which was located in the building right behind our hotel.  

We were planning on stopping by to give our support to the team (and to see our grandson.)  LOL.

I have no clue as to what "google" Sam was looking at, but when he checked the address for the arena.....it had him thinking it was about two miles down the road.   Somehow our communication got a tad bit confused that morning.

We check out of the hotel and all along I'm thinking "Why don't we just walk 50 ft out the back door of the hotel to the "Dr. Pepper Arena?"

Anyways......we get in the car and drive two miles to find nothing.....    By this time, I direct him back around to the right location.   Well.....guess what?  The cost to park our car was going to be $10.00.  If we had just walked from the hotel, we could have left our car parked in the garage where it was overnight.       We didn't stop....we didn't go....we didn't see Tyler and we didn't support the cheerleaders!!



********

Next stop.......A place that was new to us called "I Fly."
We had to check this out.....


It's a place that teaches you to parachute!!   We watched from the observation deck for a while....I could just see myself twirling around in that tube!!!   


Pretty cool to say the least......I never did see the top of the tube, but what I do know is that it takes you up... real HIGH.  
All I could think about was the show "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate factory."   Do you remember when the kids drank the soda that they were NOT suppose to drink and the gas lifted them high up in that wind tunnel?  

I pictured in my mind......me being in this tunnel and getting way too close to the big turning fan at the top!!   Oh no!!!

******
Next Stop.......   "The Arrangement" at the Galleria in Dallas.

I have seen advertisements for this Unique Furniture store, for years now.   Have always wanted to go.   The furniture is quality furniture and I can honestly say that it definitely is my style......

My sweet husband was eager to take me so I could get it out of my system.....  As we walk through the doors, I immediately see several items that would definitely be on my purchase list.    

Gorgeous Turquoise leather chairs for a dining table......Two red chairs made from alligator ......A bed.....and a sofa!

Turquoise chairs......$3,100 each  (would need 6)
Red chairs.......$3,100 for one and the second one would be discounted to $1,500.

Bed.....$6,000

Sofa......$5,100

YIKES!!

We had to get ourselves out of that store.......
I would have thought I could have bought it ALL for maybe

$2,500.

Who buys furniture like this?   Not me....Not us!!

We put our feet on the fast track and got out of there.

By this time.....home sweet home was calling our names.

It was a GREAT weekend!!   Thankful for the opportunity to get away..

Hugs Y'all

Haha, I have been to The Arrangement and they are really proud of their stuff with those price tags. It certainly would not be smart to bring home expensive furniture with three dogs in our house. Sounds like you had a fun trip. Sorry you didn't get to see Tyler.

Betsy Adams said...

Ahhh---sorry you missed seeing Tyler and missed the cheerleader performance... BUT--it sounds like you were still very busy and had an interesting time....

Woooooo--never heard of furniture THAT expensive... That's how the 'rich and famous' must live... Mercy Me!!!!! And I thought I paid alot for our LazyBoy.... ha ha

Hugs,
Betsy

You had a narrow escape from that furniture store; I would not want to visit it, those are crazy prices.

Sounds like you had a lot of fun even though your wires got crossed!
The furniture is a wee bit out of my price range too. but it is fun to look!

That parachute place looks amazing!

Michelle said...

I like the sound of that furniture, but not the price!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

What? You mean you didn't order a couple of those beds and sofas?? Haha! And I thought my sofa was a tad expensive. I'll have to tell BG about what a deal I got. LOL! Sorry you didn't get to see the performance, but glad you had a nice getaway!
