Butts in Baseball Pants: The Sequal


This past Friday, I celebrated my 25th birthday in Dallas, Texas with 3 of my favorite girlfriends. The theme for the weekend: butts in baseball pants.

If you’ve kept up with my blog, then you have read about my last girls trip to Dallas and all the shenanigans that took place. If you haven’t, you can read that post here.

Once again, we made our way to Dallas to take in a Texas Rangers game on Saturday night against the Baltimore Orioles, sans the meltdown I had driving last time. With a Cowboys preseason game taking place at the same time as the Rangers game, we made sure to head towards Arlington from Carrollton plenty early. Gotta love that Dallas traffic.

We got to our seats with plenty of time to spare and definitely wasn’t disappointed with our view!

Rangers 3

We couldn’t have picked a better game to go to. We had overcast skies, 85* weather, perfect seats, and a close-scoring game with the Rangers winning 4-3. After waiting in traffic about 45 minutes to get to the interstate, we finally made our way back to Carrollton.

This particular trip, we were able to stay with my husband’s aunt and uncle who were spectacular hosts! I could have easily spent all weekend sunbathing and swimming in their pool.

Skip back to Friday:

For dinner Friday evening, we went to a restaurant called Henry’s Tavern. It was more of a bar scene, but still had some good food. I highly recommend the salmon as well as their Calamari. Henry’s Tavern is located in Plano, Texas in the Shops at Legacy. Here, you are able to pick from a plethora of places to eat as well as tons of shopping. It is worth checking out if you are in the area.

After a late night Saturday playing pool basketball until 3AM, we left for home around 10:30 Sunday morning. My car is still in tact, I’m a little deaf from Kamee yelling at drivers, my throat is scratchy from screaming at Siri that she doesn’t know where she’s going, and my heart is full from having an incredible weekend with 3 of my best friends. To say that I am thoroughly looking forward to another trip next year is quite the understatement!
