just the two of us {mother-daughter weekend 2013 - part I}

One of my fondest memories growing up was spending annual weekends away with my mom doing all sorts of girly things. From makeovers to shopping sprees to adventures, it really didn't matter much what we were doing, just that it was the two of us. 

I want to have those kinds of memories with Grace so a couple of weekends ago on Oct. 26th, we embarked on our own little adventure. We didn't go far, just Houston, but I love, love, LOVED spending time with my girly girl.
We had lunch with some sweet friends that we met in person for the first time!!! My friend Olivia and I have been blog friends a long time. She has the cutest little girls and it was so neat getting to meet them in person!!
We ate at Barnaby's Cafe in downtown Houston and it was yummy! I'm still dreaming of this delicious salad!!
Olivia took all these fun pics - thank you!!
Thank you Olivia for meeting us - we had a great time hanging out with you guys - you and your girls are so stinkin' cute and sweet!!
Later that night, Grace and I made a special stop at the KPea/Kids Fly Too Houston shopping event. Fun times!
Both of my littles love elevators. I'm not sure what the fascination is, but it's cheap entertainment, so off we go!
This sweet girly girl of mine had a lot of fun picking out a cute dress for her American Girl dolls and a couple for herself...
We made a late night run for.............................. pancakes, what else! The little pumpkin and I share this love language. {and yes, I was good and stuck to a grilled chicken salad - boo! but I'm almost at my weight loss goal...38 lbs. and counting so I didn't want to ruin all my hard work!!}
We came back to our hotel with grand plans for girly manis and pedis, but we were tuckered out after a busy day so we ditched the pampering for a sweet dose of snuggling under the covers and we were out in 10 min. flat!
We had such a fun day!!! Even with the parking lot fender bender {yes, in our new car!! *tear*} I wouldn't trade these memories for anything in the world. I love you, Grace!

Looks like a blast!! I've known Olivia for a few years only online too (her daughter's modeled my boutique clothes for Ebay), how wonderful for you to finally meet her.
