Personal | Dallas Travel And Adventure Show & Twilight
The past three weekends have been big ones for me. When I say big, I mean “OMG did my dog just balance that treat on his nose?!” big. So this post is for your pure entertainment on my small musings. Here are a few things that I’ve learned:
1. I can now eat sushi with chopsticks! Javier and I went out to Hana Cafe for Andrea’s 26th birthday and I ate my whole meal with chopsticks and didn’t touch my fork! I think the trick is to not come on a Friday night when I have no patience for those thin pieces of wood and my stomach wins over. So I think I’m ready to hit up Japan and eat at all the food carts. Ok, I kid, rice still scares me.
2. Luxury hotels are trouble. Once you start, you can’t stop. Couple weeks ago Javier and I jetted down to Dallas for a Budget Travel Magazine – Travel and Adventure Show. It was a one day trip and I knew we would be TIRED, so I got us a cozy room at the new Omni Dallas Hotel – attached to the Convention Center. Hotness. We flew down Business Class, got a fancy Chrysler 300 rental car, pulled up to valet parking (why not while we were at it) and hung out with famous people like the Travel Channel’s Samantha Brown. Need proof? Boom! Really, all this fanciness wasn’t planned. I swear. And you know what? Artsy hotels with in room art and rooftop pools and hot tubs are a girls best friend. Sigh.
3. I’m addicted to chapstick. I need it when I go to bed and when I go to the dentist, or it just bugs me. Now I’ve learned I need it when I go to the gym. Who needs chapstick when they go to the gym? Apparently I do.
4. Twilight Breaking Dawn Part II was awesomesauce! I had been looking forward to watching that movie but oh so sad that it’s all over. The crazy twist at the end of the movie (that wasn’t in the book) had me saying “oh snap!” and covering my mouth and looking at Javier….who has no idea that it wasn’t part of the book. I think they did a good job with the ending. Bravo. BUT before I scare off all the Twilight haters, watch the funny Bad Lip Reading video below. Lovers and haters alike will thank me.
