To counteract the Monday morning blues, I wanted to share about the fun things I've been up to for the past few days!
Chihuly Nights at the Dallas Arboretum
The Dallas Arboretum had a special exhibition of Chihuly's beautiful glass pieces on display for the past few months, and I finally went to see it! All of the pieces are lit up for Chihuly Nights, and they have a concert series as well where guests can set up a picnic, listen to music, and wander around the Arboretum viewing the gorgeous pieces.
Nature, art, music, and wine all at once? What's not to love?!

My Little, Ashley, came to DFW this weekend for TCU Homecoming! She lives in Kansas now, so our time together is always so special. She got in late Friday afternoon, so we spent the evening shopping at NorthPark, my favorite mall in the area, and dined at La Duni. If you haven't been there, you need to try it!

After the game, we stopped by the alumni reception for our sorority, Tau Beta Sigma. Great to see so many of my sisters!
I caught up with a TCU friend who was in town for the weekend, and we spent Sunday afternoon at the Botanical Gardens. In all my time at TCU, I think I only made it over to them twice, which is a shame because they are so beautiful! The weather was unusually warm, and I loved walking around enjoying nature. Definitely will have to make another visit there in the spring!
Counting my blessings after all of this fun with wonderful people, and looking forward to the rest of the fall!
