Weekend Wandering: Dallas Arboretum: Spring Blooms

One of my favorite things to do in Dallas is to visit the Dallas Arboretum while the Dallas Blooms are in bloom. There are thousands of tulips and other flowers. We went on a bit of a cloudy Sunday afternoon but it was perfect because the threat of rain kept many people away. This year

Weeked Wanderings: A Slow Drive Home


This trip we didn’t drive from Dallas to Kansas. We actually flew to Amarillo before driving to Johnson. Typically it is a three hour drive between the two but not on the drive back to Amarillo. When we left Johnson it was 3℉ and there were three inches of snow on the ground. Despite the

Weekend Wandering: Walking Through Johnson, Kansas

Johnson City, Kansas

Most of our stay in Kansas was really cold. However, the day we arrived was fairly warm and after hours in a vehicle I needed to stretch my legs. We were staying with his parents and while they were still at work we decided to take their corgi, Dawson, out for a walk. He was

Weekend Wanderings: A Day in Fort Worth

Keltin and I spent Saturday in Fort Worth. Our first stop was the farmers market on a beautiful bright and windy day. I did get the eggs, produce, and sourdough without being blown away but it was a near thing. With all that in the cooler we went to the massage we had scheduled because

Weekend Wanderings: To Kansas

Keltin and I recently made a weekend trip up to Kansas for a good friend’s wedding. The wedding was beautiful and the reception was a blast. On the drive up I insisted that we stop to take pictures if we saw anything neat. Well, not 5 minutes later we came across these old buildings and

Weekend Wondering: Anastasia

Another musical enjoyed. February has been a busy month for musicals. Not only did Keltin and I get to see The Book of Mormon but I also got to see Anastasia with my Grandmother. My Grandmother helped to foster a love of musicals as a child. I remember watching The Sound of Music, My Fair Lady, and West Side Story at her house. This musical shares

Weekend Wanderings: Hop & Sting Brewing Company

Keltin and I finally made it out to Grapevine’s craft brewery. With as much as I enjoy a good beer I’m kind of embarrassed about how long it took me to visit this local brewery. Located near the historic Main Street with in door seating and a dog friendly patio this is a great spot

Weekend Wandering: Basketball

Keltin‘s degree is in broadcasting and he particularly loves sports broadcasting. Even though he doesn’t do it full time any longer he will occasionally get calls from friends in the business when they need additional help covering games. These are college games, mostly basketball or volleyball. I’m not really interested in watching the games but

Weekend Wanderings: The Book of Mormon

The Book of Mormon, a Tony Award winning musical, finally came to the Dallas Summer Musicals. When I was looking at tickets last year this was one that Keltin wanted to see along with Hamilton. That performance is later this year. We laughed through the entire performance. The Book of Mormon was written by the creators of South Park. Thus
