-I really, really love the Dallas restaurant scene – it’s fun and trendy and there’s always something new to try. I’m working my way through this list and have hit four thus far.
-The weather is just crazy this year with temps going up and down all the time. Kinda scares me when I think about global changes. 80 yesterday, ice today.
-It’s sad that Matt walks in the door from work and goes straight to his computer to go back to work.
-I want pizza all.the.time.
-Sometimes I just stare at pictures from our honeymoon because I can’t believe we travelled to all those beautiful places. It seems so long ago.
-How on Earth are you supposed to choose which holiday baked goods to make with all the ridiculous blog recipes out there this year? I told Matt all the things I want to bake this Christmas, and he looked at me like I was crazy and said normal people just need one dessert to go with dinner. My family is not normal.
-I’m enjoying the newish show ‘Rent or Buy’ on HGTV because I feel like that’s where we’ll be in a year or two. I’m always more attracted to the swanky downtown rentals but would love a guest room and a yard for summer cookouts.
Happy Friday Eve.Read More
A little entertainment for your Wednesday morning…
Jason Andre of Seven Season Films put together a GORGEOUS video of our wedding on Bald Head Island! We had debated hiring a videographer, and I can’t tell you how glad I am that we did. Jason was easy to work with and professional and the final product was worth every penny. It is fun to see the ceremony from our guests’ perspective and I’m thrilled to be able to relive that perfect day at any moment.
Happy hump. This week is flying by because it’s a short one! We’re traveling for yet another wedding this weekend! Plus, evenings have been really nice, as Matt has had a light workload and come home for dinner every night. It makes such a big difference to have a companion to dine with, and I do enjoy an after-dinner stroll. It’s still 80 here, btw.
I made sweet potato enchiladas on Sunday and then broccoli with beef on Monday. We’re getting caught up on Revenge too, so maybe one day we can watch it live.
Last night, I made Angela’s butternut mac. The texture was awesome and felt like I was eating soooo much cheese.
Speaking of texture, I need a new conditioner! Any recs. of something really thick that takes out tangles, but isn’t super expensive? I used to love the orange Matrix Sleek Look conditioner, but I think they changed the formula to the Total Results line and the bottle is different:( My hair is getting kind of gross, but I can’t bring myself to get a significant cut. I can only imagine how incredible it would feel if I chopped like 6 inches!
Have a good rest of the week, friends.
Almost the weekend!!!
I had a weird cold last week that finally turned into a runny nose this week that turned into a 3-day headache. Maybe the germs are different here in Texas, but I’m ready to feel normal again! I did make it to a Rangers game on Monday and trivia night on Tuesday – trying to make the best of my weeknights since Matt is already busy. He did come home tonight for a classic burger and fry night. It’s been nice to get back in the kitchen, especially since I have a wonderful island to work on!
Happy Labor Day! I’m enjoying a fun-filled weekend with my parents, who are visiting Dallas!
I’ve gotten quite a few requests for snaps of our new space – so here it is! The best part is that it’s on the 7th floor with lots of windows, so it gets amazing light.
Since we went with a one bedroom, the apartment is basically one big room with a little study in the back. I like the open floor plan, but I also think it makes it feel a bit cluttered at times.
We replaced our guest bed with a fold-out couch for the study, but we’re still figuring out what to do with this space – hoping to hang my grandmother’s art soon and maybe get a rug.
We have a great nook in the dining area where we’d eventually like to buy something that will work as a bar.

The kitchen is the best part!!!
After I took the pic above, we snagged West Elm counter stools half price!
The bedroom is smallish and simple, but I kind of like it that way.
And that’s our home!Read More
