Check out the full set of Civil Sarah and Rollerboy’s wedding photos in mygallery.

I arrived at the airport early, so I’ve already filtered through the photos. Seems someone thought it was a good idea to put wifi on the plane, so here are some teaser photos from Civil Sarah and Rollerblading Boy’s wedding. The rest of the photos will be up as soon as I have more bandwidth.
These were on the groom’s cake. Aren’t they cute?
I hate using the flash. As a result, many of my photos are way too fuzzy to be any good. But I like the effect of movement. And I don’t like the harsh light my flash produces. The problem is worse when I hand my camera to someone else. However, you can see the dress I bought today. Decided I wanted something new to wear to the wedding, so I found a mall on the GPS and bought a dress within an hour. Cut off the tags and put it on in the bathroom. I actually bought two dresses because they were on sale. Now I have to find a reason to wear the other one.
I didn’t realize finding breakfast on a Sunday morning in Dallas would be so hard.
I left the hotel with the idea that I would eventually stumble upon Uptown. Sure enough, I managed to go directly there even without the help of my GPS. Speaking of the GPS, I half expected the Garmin to talk like a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader. Somewhat disappointed. Our GPS in Korea spoke Korean, so I think it would be amusing if I could change the GPS voice to sound like the locals wherever I am.
I drove down McKinney and saw Bread Winners Cafe which looked promising until I realized it looked like one of those places you take the whole family when grandma is visiting.
So I came down the other side of Uptown and saw a Starbucks. Not wanting to do the easy thing, I took out my phone and searched for breakfast. I got three hits and wasn’t interested. So I searched for coffee. Among the many Starbucks, I found the Urban Dog Coffee. Promising!
I should have checked the website first. Like most of Dallas, it is closed on Sundays. Bummer.
But, right down the road, I saw cars in the parking lot at Zaguán Latin Café and Bakery. Win!
It is this friendly, full-service bakery and coffee shop featuring Venezuelan and Argintinean food and Columbian coffee. I’m enjoying a ham and cheese cachito—diced ham and cheese in a sweetbread roll—and a latte while using their free wifi and escaping from the rain.
It is a very wet day here in Dallas.

Decided to eat at the Bistro in the hotel. Although I dressed up for the jacket-required French resturaunt, I decided to save my budget. And I figured there would be no single men. Seemed to be old couples.
So now I sit at the bar with all the other single, middle-aged women, slurping my tomato soup.
I finally found my hotel. Seems that Hotwire did good. They picked me this gorgeous old hotel in downtown Dallas. Adorable.
Of course, to get here, I had to pound my jello shot, hang out with a group of lesbians and old gay men who thought I was 25, and go to a porn shop.
It has been an eventful day in Dallas. Now to find food. Do I eat in the hotel or go out?
Haven’t left. Started to rain so we decided to stay a while. Had to go to the bathroom and I’d forgotten what it is like to pee in a stall without doors. At least there were separate men and women’s rooms.
For your entertainment, if you zoom into the picture you can see the car wash across the street.
