The Harbor at Rockwall

Happy Monday! It is a gorgeous day in DFW today! So beautiful that we just had to get out and enjoy it. I am currently sitting outside on patio at Starbucks. Temps are in the low 80’s and there’s not a cloud in the sky. Totally awesome after the ninety degree temps from last week, and the nasty rainy weather we had for a large part of the weekend. […]

Arbor Hills Nature Preserve

It’s amazing how you can live within twenty minutes of something and not even know about it. Two weeks ago, while out running some errands, my husband and I decided to pick up some sandwiches for a late lunch and take them to a park to eat them. He did a quick Google search on his phone to see what parks might be nearby, and that’s when we discovered this little […]

A Taste of San Francisco – Taylor Street Coffee Shop

The Taylor Street Coffee House is a must do breakfast spot while in San Francisco. I am a repeat customer and I enjoy the tiny gem every time I am in town. This cozy little coffee house is on the edge of transitional streets, but remains securely located across the street from the downtown Hilton. The Hilton not only provides a steady flow of business, it also provides a landmark for the Taylor Street eatery. […]

A Taste of San Francisco – Zuni Cafe

My good friend, Bobbye, took a trip to San Francisco last week. Before she left, she asked me where I would eat in San Francisco, if I could choose anywhere. My first thought was the Zuni Cafe. I have seen Giada tweet (more than once) about how she always tries to go there when she is in San Francisco, so I knew it had to be good. […]

The Happiest Place On Earth!

During the Christmas holidays, I had a chance talk to my sister-n-law about their upcoming trip to Disney World. It brought back wonderful memories of our time there. My husband and I went back in 2003, and it was one of most fun vacations that we have ever had. I remember just standing […]

This past Saturday we met my parents over in McKinney so that we could attend the Dickens of a Christmas Festival. It is an annual event featuring live music, vendors, and children’s activities. I have wanted to attend this event ever since we first moved to the Dallas area, but we […]

Lubbock, Texas

On our trip out to the Texas Panhandle we spent a couple of days checking out Lubbock. This city is home to Texas Tech University, as well as being the birthplace of music legend Buddy Holly. We chose to stay at the Embassy Suites Hotel which had comfortable and clean rooms. (must confess I am a little on the picky side when it comes to hotels) A complimentary Cooked-to-Order breakfast […]

Napa Valley

If there is one word to describe Napa Valley, it would have to be breathtaking. The rolling hillsides and lush vineyards are incredibly picturesque. We spent the day driving around Napa Valley tasting wines, and admiring the beautiful scenery all around us. Sterling Vineyards offers the unique experience of […]

San Francisco

We began our week long trip through Northern California in San Francisco. We spent the first two days of our trip there in the city, seeing and doing some of the standard touristy things. Our first stop was the Fisherman’s Wharf area. The large ship in the foreground is called the Balclutha. This […]
