Ashley's birthday weekend celebration

Saturday I spent the day with Ashley and a group of fun ladies to celebrate her 30th birthday.



We started the day with Amy, Amanda, Jenn, Ashley and I getting pedicures in Burleson before we headed to Dallas for the afternoon/night.

Before we headed to Hotel ZaZa for the night we had lunch at North Park mall.  I had a turkey, bacon and avocado sandwich and it was delicious!   After a little shopping we got cupcakes at Sprinkles. 




Jenn got a banana chocolate cupcake, I got salted caramel flavor and Ashley got a blueberry lemon cupcake.  The cupcakes were delicious!  Mmmmm!  I was one happy girl after that delicious sweet treat.




Once we made it to the hotel we got all settled into our hotel rooms and I met Miranda for the first time ever.  I am so excited to call her a friend.  She is really funny, really witty and super smart!  I didn't get a picture with just her.  Sad face. :(  But you'll see her pretty face in the group pictures.





We enjoyed chocolate covered strawberries and a champagne toast and then headed down to the pool.

  



The pool area was a bit smaller than I thought it would be, but we still had fun.  Most of the other guests left the pool area when it stated sprinkling rain.   It never rained super hard, but we ended up having the place to ourselves!



Sarah {and sweet Maeva} Amy, Ashley, Jenn, Me, Miranda and Amanda.  I will add ... this picture was taken by our waitress.  There was a creepy photographer dude that had us all on edge.  I'm not sure what his story was, but he had a big camera and offered to take a few pictures of us.  Um no thank you!  He just sat off in the distance and every once in awhile you could feel someone staring at you and yep...it was him.  Bizarre! 




After some much needed relaxation and girl talk at the pool we headed upstairs to freshen up for a fun dinner at Dragonfly.



Here we all are at dinner!
Jenn, Jessica, Miranda, Sarah, Amanda, Amy, Ashley and Angie {me}
  I love all these ladies so much.  

I met Amanda and Amy at Judd's baby shower, so it was wonderful to see their pretty faces again.

We had the best time at dinner and the food was delicious.  The service sadly was not stellar, but these amazing ladies all at one table made up for the snobby-ness of our server.  




The poor guy started out on the wrong food by insisting that we all start our meal with a skinny watermelon margarita.  Was he dropping a hint?  haha!  As you can see I decided to take him up on his offer and the margarita was delicious!




  I am so excited to say I finally got to meet Jessica.  I've followed her blog since I first started blogging almost 6 years ago.  I feel like I've known her for years!  She is so fun and nice.  She is just as I imagined her to be and I'm thankful she is an in-real-life friend now!  And sad face once again, I didn't get a picture with just she and I.  I should have been more on top of my picture game, but we were having too much fun!




I love me some Jenn.  She is a super fun gal!





After dinner we moved from our private dining room to the pool area!  The manager escorted us to an area by the pool and brought over sparklers to celebrate Ashley!




I'm so thankful I got to spend time with all these girls.  It truly was a weekend to remember and I'm glad we were all able to meet up for a fun girls night out!

Happy Birthday Ashley!!!!!!
