Christmas Trip 2010

Since we had already had "Christmas" with our kids..we planned a little getwaway...if time and work allowed. It did and we were thrilled! We had such a good time. We drove to downtown Fort Worth and here is a sampling of the fun we had...Amazing Food (and way too much I hate to admit)

Fireside Pies-oh yummy! Probably one of our new favorites!!! Thanks to Jessica for blogging about this one!! If you go, sit at the bar and watch them make your pizza!
Fuzzy's Taco's-so good! Chicken tacos are my favorite...so fresh! Not your typical taco!
McKinley Bakery-best cakes and pies ever! My new favorite cake...Chocolate Italian Creme Cake! Oh my...anyone have the recipe??
Cowtown Diner-good but not our favorite! Larry had deep fried deviled eggs! Crazy!
Corner Bakery-always good and I loved sitting there on Christmas Eve morning sipping coffee and planning our day together! It was so relaxing and fun!
Worthington Hotel Christmas Day Buffet-Whew. It was crazy good. Our favorites...boiled shrimp and the salmon dish! Ugh. I could have even my weight in it...oh wait...maybe I did! :)
Cooper's BBQ-always good and we had a new cobbler...Pecan Cobbler...oh goodness...I don't need to go there too often!

Fun Shopping!
We went lots of fun places...lots of looking and bought stocking stuffers!
Central Market-yes, a "grocery store" but we love this place!!
World Market-so fun!
Aaron Brothers- I love looking at their frames and artsy stuff!
Barnes and Nobles, Pottery Barn, Anthropologie, Target, Decorators Warehouse, Williams-Sonoma--Always fun!

We had so much fun just shopping, looking...and there was no pressure! We had finished our "Christmas" so this was like the sugar on top of the icing! It was fun to relax in the room, watch a movie in the room, went to see True Grit at the theater and my favorite--just hanging out with my hubby! Fort Worth had decorated downtown so pretty so we walked around every night and just took in the sights and sounds...and the Starbucks! :)

What a fun ending to a wonderful year! Larry and I talked so much about how blessed we are! Our prayer is in the coming year we can be even better stewards of our money and our resources. We have lots of new business and though it can be exhausting we are so blessed to have it and we are so thankful! We had so much fun talking about our kids and grandkids while away from them...we missed them but are thankful they have two families that love them!!!

(It was a little hard to take pictures of the two of us...we aren't very good at asking others to take them! So, here is our best stab at a picture in front of the tree in Sundance Square.)
