Valentines Day Weekend

Friday night we drove up to Dallas to stay in the Indigo Hotel, I love that hotel...the atmosphere is so amazing and unlike any other hotel I've ever stayed at. Friday night, Zach and I didn't do too much, we went down to the lobby and hung out a while, then we went up to our room where we got champagne and had ourselves a nice little quiet night talking about everything under the sun that you can possibly think of...

Saturday we woke up and ate breakfast downstairs, then went to the Dallas Aquarium, that place is awesome. I highly suggest going if you are in the Dallas area and esp. if you have kids...I think that is something little children would love. It has this HUGE tunnel that you walk under and you can watch all sorts of sharks and other fish swim over your head!!! It was so much fun...after that Zach and I rode in our shuttle over to an outlet mall, while we were in the shuttle these 2 guys were talking about bands, singers, and all sorts of "tours"...it just so happened that they were tour bus drivers for all sorts of people and right now they were driving around all the "Stars on Ice" contestants, which were all staying in our hotel, however we never got to see them...then after we went to the outlet mall and ate lunch at this really neat pub downtown, we called the shuttle to head back to the hotel to get ready for our fancy dinner that night....well our shuttle driver said, "I hope you don't mind, but I have to pick up Kim Fields and her family real fast"..we said no problem and off we went, little did we know we were about to talk to someone famous. I have never heard of her before, and neither has Zach...however Kim Fields played on Fresh Prince of Bel-air, Living Single, and was "Tootie" from facts of life...well Kim, her husband and little boy got in the van, they told us Happy Valentines Day then we talked about the aquarium and all sorts of stuff, had I realized she was famous or who she was, I probably would have asked for a picture or an autograph...they get out at our hotel, then before we could get out, our diver said... "you know who that is right...thats Kim Fields....she is famous"...so needless to say when we got upstairs I had to "google" her and sure enough we just sat a foot away from her and her family and talked to them for a good 45 minutes and had no idea! PRETTY NEAT!!!

Well after that we went upstairs to start getting ready--Ashley and James came that night and we all went out to eat at Dakotas! It was such an amazing restaurant..when you arrived there, all you see is an elevator...you get in, then go down....(the restaurant is under grown)...there is this huge lit up waterfall in the outside part and the inside is beautiful! The food was excellent, well worth the money we spent!!!! We planed on going on a carriage ride, however since it was Valentines Day they were all booked up, but thats ok...the night was more than amazing and the best Valentines Day ever!!!!!

Here is a slide show of all the pics!!!
