Dallas Graduation Celebration

On May 17th we all headed up to Dallas for the weekend to celebrate the graduation of my sister-in-law, Angela. We got there in the evening and while I was unable to attend the actual graduation ceremony (limited tickets were given to each graduate and immediate family got priority) we all did go to dinner afterwards at the restaurant she worked at which was awesome because the food seemed endless ^^

This was also the first time that I wore Lolita in front of my husband's family so I will admit that I was a little nervous at first but everyone really liked my outfit and asked questions and stuff, which made me very happy.

On Saturday our hosts took us to The Perot Museum of Nature and Science, which was just walking distance from their apartment

There was so much to see and do, but we were on limited time since we arrived later in the afternoon.
The more you know: Colors *^*
Many scientist believe the moon formed from the debris created when a Mars-size planetoid collided with Earth long ago.

Torosaurus Skull (Torosaurus Latus - Collected in South Dakota)
Pachyrhinosaurus Skeleton (Pachrhinosaurus Perotorm - Collected in Alaska

Toronado - it would break up when you put your hands through it
Earthquake simulator - They even had different magnitudes you could choose from
I just really loved this display and how bright it was
Heat sensing screen. Look at how hot I am. hehe
This machine was cool. You put your hand under the light and it shows your veins
On this one when you moved it projected all the movements you made on the screen
This one took a little more time to take effect but the blocks moved when you did also.
 We missed out on a lot of the exhibits but we were shown the sports hall briefly. You can race against several athletes, a cheetah or even a t-rex, which was really interesting. I hope one day we are able to go again. If anyone is in Dallas I highly recommend checking this place out. There was so much to see and a lot of it was interactive which made it that much better ^^

Sunday was a day for us to relax but we did manage to go out to eat at Benihana so I dressed up for fun.

Old School Sweet <3
Dress: Bodyline
Headbow: Innocent World
The rest of the family left Sunday but my husband and I left Monday afternoon so we went out for brunch before heading out.

Kept it cool and casual since it was hot out - also not happy with my sock choice
Top: F21
Skirt: Anna House
We really had such a great time hanging out with Adrian's sister and her boyfriend. They really are such great people and we always have an awesome time together which is why I'm sad that they just moved to Chicago last week. Hopefully they can visit or we can visit them because I miss them lots!

It had been a while since I spent the weekend out of town but I knew I wanted to pack lots of Lolita clothes. What kind of clothing do you pack for a trip? I'd love to hear about it ^^

Until next time... - Angel
