The Big D

 So I had an exceptional weekend with my favorite ladies in Dallas to see our dear friend Baber get married.  We rolled in a little late to make the rehearsal dinner, but had a blast at Javier's, sipping skinny margs, and meeting the wonderful Kate (hurrah!).  The next day we recovered with french fries and lounging by the pool, then got all gussied up for the wedding.   A lady at the hotel took this shot which cracked us up.  I guess she liked our shoes?
We got to catch up with old friends from college that I hadn't seen in a coon's age, like Emily and Josh.  You have to check out Josh's greeting card company- J-Dig Cards 

Now, if you don't have a sense of humor are easily offended, please don't check these cards out.  Although Josh's mom said that there was only one which bothered her.  This is one of my favorites.  Hee.

Hmmm, some things don't change.  Here's a picture from Baber's slide show of senior (?) year of college.  That was 8 years ago (maybe I need to re-read this post).  I'm wearing a poncho because it's Cinco De Mayo (and it was pouring rain, so the thing ended up smelling like a wet woolly dog- lovely).

I don't know why this picture won't post right.  However, I adore it, so it's staying.

Steve got the garter, and Hess caught the bouquet.

Virge and I found a Rolls Royce.  Her car model skills are far superior to mine.  Seems like I would have picked up some moves along the way with all those car shows I attended growing up.
We headed to the Ritz, entranced by Kate's promises of amazing people watching, and the possibility of seeing high-end hookers (we don't have those in East Tennessee, I don't think.  Of course, I have no idea- they could be running rampant, and I am oblivious.  Always a strong possibility).

Tron and Anner made a new friend.
While I deduced that the lady in the tight red dress with her bosoms hanging out was indeed an escort.

Well, to be fair, this deduction was based solely on her outfit.  So escort, or really bad taste in clothes.  I tried to convince several people to go ask her how much her hourly rate was.  Because they are not idiots, have common sense, For some completely unknown reason, all of my friends refused.  Some friends. 


Anyway, wonderful girls' trip.  Congratulations to Baber on his beautiful bride and wonderful wedding! 

Ladies, I will see you again in the middle of April for Kinger's wedding, then again in the middle of June for Anner's.  Thank goodness- although the month break is probably good.  My face hurts from talking and laughing so much. 


  1. Awwww, I wish I had been there! Trust me, there are not many moments when I wish I still lived in Dallas... but you warrant one! (And Kate. Every week during our Skype date.)

    Anyway, I'm so glad you went to the ladies of the night Big Show at the Ritz. During my birthday/bachelorette weekend in Dallas, my favorite gals walked around Dallas in a constant state of shock and awe. Most of their photos from the weekend are literally of other women at the bar and the ridiculousness they were wearing. SUCH a spectacle, and so much fun if you get the joke.

  2. Nice! Cute ensembles ladies!!
    You know I am coming to Knoxville this weekend right? For Taylor's wedding?
