baseball time in arlington

We had a whirlwind weekend. On Friday night we went to the wedding of a truly beautiful couple. The invitation directed us to the Jazz Hall of Fame and I was expecting a night inside. Instead, the wedding was held on the rooftop. Imagine downtown Tulsa at sunset and the most beautiful wedding gown you have ever seen. It was breathtaking. You should check it out for yourself once the talented Brett Heidebrecht posts them to his website!
My favorite place in the world is Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. I think this was decided for me the first time I walked in. My dad took my brother and me down from Oklahoma for a game when I was 5 or 6 and we got to see Rusty Greer, Mickey Tettleton, and all those old guys. Call it a "Field Of Dreams" moment or whatever you want, but RBIA holds something special for me. I take every chance I get to catch a game there. For those of you who are not baseball fans, let me give you a little background on the current state of affairs in Rangers-world. Josh Hamilton was a Ranger through and through, inspiration come-back-from-drugs-get-saved-hit-lots-of-home-runs story and all. Until he signed for lots of money with the Angels. This was his first weekend in Arlington as a visitor and he received plenty of boos. My wife thought it was a riot to rag on him. My roommate through all of college, Kylie, (also known as rooms slash bestie till we're 40) bought us the greatest Christmas present: an entire weekend with her plus Rangers baseball. It was so wonderful. We cheered and booed (see above) and ate way too many sunflower seeds. She is one of the only girls I know who loves sports as much as I do (and knows more about them too). Sam and I love this place in Dallas called Glorias. It's El Salvadoran, which essentially means Mexican in Texas, but they bring you black bean dip for you chips. So good. Even though we had Gloria's last time we were in Dallas, we took everyone again.We met up with my older sister Hallie for breakfast before heading back. Breadwinners is a great Dallas locale for breakfast. Try it if you're around the DFW area for Sunday brunch!Overall just a perfect weekend. Tiring, but wonderful. Any weekend when I get to wear my Ivan Rodriguez jersey for a whole day and Jordan even condones it just can't be beat. 

What's your favorite place in the world? We would love to know!
