Grapevine, Texas ScrapGals Retreat - Review in Photos (Day 1 - Friday)

I thought it might be good to recount for you some of our adventures from our recent ScrapGals Retreat in Grapevine, Texas. Note that this is a photo-heavy post and might take a while to load depending on your connection.

Tracie and I left Nashville via a Southwest flight that was quite bumpy due to some turbulence from storms. Our landing in Grapevine was definitely not what I'd call "smooth."

On Friday morning, we headed out for several retreat related errands, then we met up with fellow ScrapGals to explore Grapevine a bit in the afternoon. Here I am ready for our sightseeing and acting goofy in the hotel room mirror.  (Side note: I totally need a big mirror like this at home to be able to see my entire outfit.)

Before we met the retreat-goers, Tracie and I snapped a selfie in a good spot in the hotel hallway by the elevators - no shame, lol!

Downtown Grapevine was lovely and quaint; I enjoyed getting to explore the shops a bit.

This historic log home reminds me of a similar structure in my hometown that is preserved as part of the Kentucky Museum at Western Kentucky University.


This group shot of us is so much fun!

More scenes from downtown Grapevine.

Shooting this fun selfie with Nikki made my day!





And I couldn't resist a group selfie as we rested and told stories along Main Street.


This grape arbor near the log cabin reminded me of a similar arbor that my great-grandparents had when I was growing up.

I love old theaters.

Can you even imagine walking to Texas? At any time of year...from any other state...it's definitely not something I can imagine doing myself.


After our afternoon of browsing along downtown, we went to dinner at Babe's Chicken, a local favorite.

I loved the mismatched chairs they had lined up in front of the restaurant for the crowds that line up to eat there frequently.

And I don't think I've ever seen this much fried food on a plate before now! We had our choice of fried chicken or chicken fried steak. I tried a few bites of each and thought they did a great job with it.

The sides were also served family style - mashed potatoes, white gravy, green salad, corn, and biscuits were all on the menu with the meat choices.

The waitresses were sweet to snap photos of our tables while we were there.


And Tracie even posed with them for another pic! I was kind of trapped at the end of a table and missed out on this photo op. :)

After dinner, we drove to a nearby town and visited the Little Blue House. It was so amazing that I'll share about it in a different post. Fab.u.lous!

While we were there, we shopped a bit, made a make 'n take with our attendees, and even posed for a group pic.

After all that, I was ready to relax in preparation for our first full day of the retreat. I even bought some pineapple and flamingo pajamas in the hopes of scrapbooking these pics at some point - haha!


And that's a wrap for the opening of the Grapevine, TX 2018 ScrapGals Retreat! Check back soon for more pics and info about the fun we had.
