Good morning dear friends. Here is a little recap of our trip to Texas to celebrate our #1’s graduation.
We arrived at our hotel in Dallas late Friday afternoon. Our #1 met us with a full wardrobe (even though she was only staying one night) and this adorable cookie for her old Mom.
That evening, we enjoyed a wonderful dinner at The French Room at the Adolphus Hotel.
The room is positively breathtaking at night.
Dinner conversation included our girl asking her old Dad if he was joking when he told her that she was “completely off the payroll” now that she will be a graduate and gainfully employed.
Obviously, not the answer she was expecting.
The Mister doing his usual competitive analysis of the menu.
He has to order the BEST thing on the menu.
Then he brags about it for the rest of the meal.
#1 and I do our usual eye roll.
The idea of financial independence is not so bad when it is accompanied by a chocolate souffle.
2 relieved parents and one college graduate in-waiting.
Love this idea. The restaurant gives a small banana bread to each couple to take home for breakfast the next morning.
We devoured it on our way to the 9 AM graduation.
When we arrived back at the hotel, we had to twist #1’s arm to go into one of the karaoke rooms.
These rooms are private,
You can see how much twisting we had to do!
Obviously, this was not my first rodeo…
