We ALL had a marvelous few days with Miss M!
It was a rare occurrence that she was able
to fly home from Atlanta just by herself!
I think she really, really enjoyed having a few days to
relax and unwind!

We enjoyed a breakfast of
sausage and biscuits, along with yogurt parfaits
before a day of shopping!

We spent a few hours strolling around Target
and found an entire basket full of goodies!
Then, it was on to Bath and Body Works!

Oh my...it was a fall extravaganza!

Of course...we had a ball!

We planned a late afternoon matinee at The Angelika!
We chose to see Indignation!

Hmmm....what to say about this movie.....
It was NOT our favorite.
We were both disappointed....
it was a beautifully filmed movie
with the autumn golden shades and that 1950's vintage look.
The acting was very, very good, as was the dialogue!
However, the film was tedious and at times, boring.
Now it was the ending that just sucked the life right out of you...
Neither of us would recommend this one.

The darling and Nick had chosen to spend a few hours at
Top Golf while we were at the movies.
We then walked a few doors down and met them both
for dinner.

Cocktails and seafood.....
good times!

Friday night had been reserved to get dressed up
and  go into Dallas for an evening
on Greenville Avenue!
When we do have those few occasions to get together,
we take time for a family pictures!
I guess you can see how much he is enjoying
having some time with his one and only daughter!

I can say we are BOTH happy to have her home!

Miss M bought a new Rose' wine for us to try...


All dressed up with some place to go.....

A photo op with Mom and Dad....
I got the "gurggles"...
excuse me!

We stopped by Reunion Tower with the hopes
of having cocktails at the bar....

The Omni was FULL and all abuzz
with the big game...
Alabama vs. USC

Then it was on to Terilli's

Cocktails at the bar upstairs

Dallas nightlife

Gorgeous weather was ours for the enjoyment..
we spent our last day together just relaxing poolside!
It was a marvelous time and all too short....
this just made our end of summer!

  8. Hi Betsy,

    Your breakfast looks delicious and healthy, too! Such good pictures you took, and it looks like a good time was had by all. I bet your daughter was thrilled to be home where she could be pampered and do some special things with you all. So glad she could visit on her own, and maybe you could make this an annual thing.

    I hope you're having a good week! :)
