September is sports season

Fall has finally arrived and for us that means football - Dallas Cowboy football to be more specific. Hubby and I took a trip to Dallas to see our beloved Cowboys play last weekend. FUN! FUN!

We left Saturday morning and headed to Dallas. We were excited about the football game, but also excited to go eat at what might be my new favorite "Dive". Hubby and I love the show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives with Guy Fieri on HGTV. A few weeks ago, we were watching the show when they featured a 'dive" called Twisted Root Burger Company in the Deep Elum district of Dallas. They make 1/2 pound burgers and "twisted" versions of common condiments/sides.

This place is full of personality! The walls were covered with signs - most of them sarcastic in nature - such as "Clean Restrooms/Dirty Minds" and "Loaded Burgers/Poor Staff" - which is posted on the window. When we got there, the line was out the door. We waited while listening to the annoucer from inside calling out names like Madonna, Sonny and Cher. You get a "name" when you order instead of a number. We were "Cheech".

The burges were awesome!!! The rootbeer was wonderful (cinammon/pecan) and the twisted ketchup was great too (with chipotle). We will definitely be back! Maybe next time, I'll get to be Pamela Anderson's name shen I order. We look so much alike and all! HA!

After lunch and checking into the hotel, it was finally time for...dramatic pause....Cowboy Stadium. We couldn't wait to see it in person! They are working on the roads around Cowboy stadium, so it was a little crazy. We were armed with driving directions and Betty, our trusty GPS. After an hour of driving in circles, we finally found it. There she was, Cowboy Stadium. She was even more magnificent than on TV.

The stadium was awesome, although I did have a hard time keeping my eyes on the field instead of the HUGE screen. The food was good. The game was good, until the last 4 minutes when the 49ers scored again and it was all downhill from there. So, the boys didn't win, but at least this is only the preseason. Better luck next time guys!

It was a great trip, but I was sure ready to get home to my babies. It's amazing how an exausting 31 hours away makes you miss them so much. Thanks Mom for watching the kids!

Have a great night!
