Tempie in Pioneer Woman Cooks Kitchen

Last week, my husband found out he would have to make a trip up to Oklahoma for business. My immediate thought was “I wonder how close the job site is to The Pioneer Woman’s Mercantile?” Turns out, it was a little over two hours away. Not super close, but close enough for me! […]

The Making of Gone With The Wind Exhibit

Gone With The Wind

As some of you may know, I am a HUGE Gone With The Wind fan. I can pretty much quote the movie word for word. Seriously. About four years ago, I found out that the Harry Ransom Center in Austin was raising money to help restore some of the costumes from Gone with the Wind. They were planning to debut the restored costumes at an exhibit […]

50 Years Later: Remembering JFK

JFK Dallas Motorcade

Today marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. My husband and I recently watched the movie “Parkland”, which gives a new perspective from the medical staff at Parkland Hospital and highlights the famous film footage taken by Abraham Zapruder in Dealey Plaza that day. We’ve also been watching several of the JFK documentaries that have been coming on TV this month. I have learned so many things about what happened […]

Greek Food Festival of Dallas

Greek Food Festival

We woke up to beautiful weather this past Sunday, which was a nice surprise because rain had been forecasted for the whole weekend. We decided to take advantage of the slightly cooler temps and gorgeous day and headed down to Dallas to check out the Greek Food Festival.

The Chihuly Exhibit

This past Sunday, we went to the Chihuly exhibit at the Dallas Arboretum. It was my mom’s birthday, and she had been wanting to go to the Chihuly exhibit ever since it first came to the Arboretum back in May. The original end date was in the first part of November, and we never did get around to going. Fortunately, due to popular demand, they decided to extend the exhibit through the end of December. Yay!
