The flight was a nice one, especially since 1) there was no one sitting next to us, and 2) I was reading an ARC (advanced readers copy) of Jeanne Birdsall's new THE PENDERWICKS AT POINT MOUETTE. (It's brilliant, and I'm trying to read it slowly to savor each page.)
(See that man in the photo. I'll bet he was sooooo jealous that I had the book and he didn't.)
Our hotel was IN the Dallas Galleria, and there was an ice skating rink there. Even though I had my blizzard clothes all packed, I decided not to do triple sawcows (or whatever they are called) on the ice . . .
I had a WONDERFUL dinner at this brand new place called Grand Lux Cafe, and liked it so much that I ate there the next day, too . . .
(Later my waitress told me that it's not new, it's a chain that The Cheesecake Factory is rolling out. If they ask me to be the spokesmodel for it, I will.)
The Dallas American Girl Store ordered spectacular weather for me, and it was in the 70's!
We had a great time . . .
Peepy was particularly pleased because she got to explore the store and hang out with her friends . . .
As you know, Peepy loves to be pampered. She was thrilled to see the salon, and immediately made an appointment . . .
We didn't think it was possible, but Chris made Peeps look even more beautiful than normal . . .
Afterward, Peepy was so exhausted (beauty is hard work), she took a nap . . .
