Dallas with the Tide

Hey, y'all.  Hope you're having a good week.  I wanted to pop in and document our 'Bama weekend in Dallas.  The trip was short (just 24 hours), but SWEET.  My sis-in-law had rooms at the Gaylord Texan. Have you ever stayed at a Gaylord hotel?  Aren't they beautiful?  The indoor gardens and waterways never get old to me.  I hate that my little one missed out -- I know she would have loved it, too (and I know she doesn't remember when she was at a Gaylord three years ago).

Anyhoo, believe it or not, the facility that impressed me the most while we were in Dallas was that dang Cowboys Stadium.  

I mean, an 80-yard jumbotron?  Really?  It was SO awesome.

As for the game...well, the Tide made poor Michigan look like...well, I kinda felt sorry for Michigan.  Especially since I thought the fans were pretty mild-mannered (nothing like the SEC folks down here).

But oh, well.  Nice doesn't win games.  It was awesome watching 'Bama whip up on 'em.  

I took my camera but didn't take nearly as many pics as I'd planned.  Luckily other folks were snapping, so I stole a few from Facebook and texts.

Lunch before the game.

See that lady in the houndstooth dress?  That's my awesome mother-in-law.  SHE HOOKED US UP...

She got us all earrings, hats, and cowboy boots. Made us all Texas Tide girls. 

Snuck a quick pic of DK in front of the stadium.

The fam (probably my favorite picture from the trip)! Love them!

Kinda random, but on the way there, I was wondering why we never pass other planes like we pass cars on the road.  I mean, I know WHY (and maybe we DO -- we just aren't close enough to see them), but I thought it'd be cool to actually see it.  And no kidding -- five minutes later, I look down to see a plane crossing below us (see the white dot in the pic below?).  

Does this happen all the time and I just never see it?
I thought it was kinda cool.  I should start looking out the window more.

Anyhoo, the trip was great.  The Tide won.  It was an exciting open to the season.  Repeat of last year, maybe?  The national championship IS in Miami this year. :)  Anyhoo...

Roll Tide, y'all.

Enjoy the rest of your week!
