Momma's going to OKC!

This time next Friday I'll be hangin with the Sailor in the OKC!!!


I called her today and she was all bummed about not being able to come home next weekend for the long holiday. She sounded so pitifull. lol
I hate it when she's sad!! She just brought her first car last week so she's financially challenged right now.

So, Mommy doing what Mommy does best brought a plane ticket to go see her from Friday morning until Tuesday morning! She is sooooooo excited that I'm coming out to see where she "works". She's gonna show me the whole base, her planes, where she trains and the whole shabang. I told her to let the single pilots know I'm on my way and she just laughed. lol

We are going to Dallas for a couple of days too. Gonna hit up Six Flags for some much needed roller coaster fun and then tear up the Dallas scene for a day. Then we'll head back to OKC and do some stuff there. She wants to take me to the Memorial from the OKC Bombing. She said I need to see that.
She's so cute and is busy planning away now. I love to make that kid smile and I could feel it through the phone once I called her back and told her I was coming. =)

AND.......She's gonna take me to see the Cowboys new stadium!!! OMG!! I'm so excited to finally see where my Boys play!!

So who knows Dallas?? What are the best places to go?? Where can we get a great steak?? Where are the fun bars?? Is there a district or someplace fun to go?? Tell me what you know!!

Dear peedee,
How wonderful!

Dallas is HOT. Miles of parking lots and Texas sun. It's been a long time, but Deep Ellum is still a hot spot. It's just a little east of downtown Dallas skyscrapers on Elm St.

Also downtown, during the day, there's a fantabulous water garden called Fountain Place at 1445 Ross, the cross Street is Field. I mean fantabulous, built around an interesting skyscraper.

Fair Park (is/was? been a long time) shabby and dangerous at night, I love it tho, very Thirties. Check whatever (e.g. aquarium) during the day.

Barbecue: Sonny Bryan's is the famous one in Dallas. Angelo's is the famous one in Ft. Worth. Check Angelo's after Six Flags?? Might be close enough.

Also Fri/Sat only J.J's Blues Bar in Ft. Worth.

Go Have Fun!

I used to live in Mineral Wells but it was a long time ago, however, I am sure that ANY restaurant you go to in the state of TX will have an awesome steak.

Give the kid a big hug and thank her for me.

The Stockyards....... Ft Worth, not far from the stadium.

Anyone will be able to direct you there!

Have fun!

Ann T. said...

Yeah, Sage,
That's where Angelo's is!

I can't help you with Dallas, my limited time there was spent sequestered in a hotel.

But...please be sure to take lots of pictures of the airplane stuff - then post em.

You know how I like that airplane stuff.

Have a great trip.

Peedee, this will be such a blast for her and for you! My daughter and I went to Memphis to catch up with my son when he was in Millington, TN. He loved showing us around the base and introducing us to his friends. We had the time of our lives! I know you will too!

The best place to go, when you find yourself in Dallas, is California...
This blog is rockin'.
