Weekend Wandering: Dinosaurs and Pencils

This is not a fashion blog but I had to share my new nerdy dress. My friend was in town and we were exploring the local boutiques when I came across this dinosaur print dress. Later that day we headed down to Deep Ellum in Dallas to visit Archer Paper Goods. They carry pencils (along

Saturday Morning Adventure

Bear and I came across this patch of bluebonnets and paintbrushes just around the corner from the house and I had to take his picture with them. Bear in the flowers. As I was taking these it began to sprinkle. And before we made it home it began to really come down in a thunderstorm.

Meridian State Park: Visitors Guide

Keltin and I have wanted to go camping for a while now. Both of us grew up camping but haven’t really since high school. With spring in the air (and a chance of rain) we finally got to go camping. We left making our reservations at a camp ground until much later than we should

Weeked Wanderings: A Slow Drive Home

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

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 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
