I’m back from my trip and I’m feeling pretty darn good (minus the terrible stomach ache). It was so great to meet up with old friends as well as make new ones. I needed this little break from my daily routine and all the recent changes taking place in the work environment. I think we made the most of our time in Dallas by eating our way through the city – which would explain my serious stomach ache. I made so many bad decisions but it was for a good cause — the love of carbs. I’ll try not to bombard you with ALL the photos from my trip but I can’t promise. After all, this blog is intended to be a digital journal so I can remember all the things I love doing and learning.
I decided to pack ultralight and fit everything in a tiny duffel bag. I want to say I succeeded with the exception of forgetting a brush, socks and shampoo. Other than that, packing light was the best thing I could’ve done. I didn’t have to worry about checking in a bag, potentially getting it lost or lugging around a heavy carry on.
One of the best things that happened on this trip was getting to drive this sick Mustang around the city. Most of friends know I’m pretty uptight so when they saw me pull up in this car their minds’ were pretty blown. *I was pretty tempted to switch out the Stang for a little Toyota Corolla because I actually know how to drive one of those *
Right before entering Babes Chicken Dinner House for lunch, I spotted this fine gentleman outside the restaurant and couldn’t help but get a photo with him. He was seriously dressed to impress and had the thickest Texan accent I have ever heard. He also had a really tight grip on my waist which I didn’t totally appreciate but went with it.
Oh yeah, Babes is a must go-to spot if you’re ever in Dallas. The food, service and overall experience was so fun. All your leftovers get tossed in a plastic bag — no boxes in this joint, that’s for sure.
While Gio and I waited for Alexa to come into town, we spent a great afternoon at Klyde Warren Park. We sipped on coffee, played Scrabble, listened to 80s tunes and talked with interesting strangers. The park was totally buzzing and the weather was absolutely glorious.
We spent a lot of our nights over by Greenville Ave. There were tons of restaurants and bars to enjoy so we did just that. Some of our favorite spots were Good Records, HG Sply Co., Truck Yard, Project Pie and Steel City Pops.
We spent another afternoon checking out museums and eating, yet again. We made a stop at the Dallas Museum of Art (which I wasn’t a fan of but oh well) and checked out the shops in the Bishop Art District – a very cute area!
Below are some photos of the food we consumed. This doesn’t even begin to cover half of the carbs we inhaled but you get the point. Also, you probably now understand why my stomach currently hates me.
My next trip is New York with two darling friends. I’m 100% we won’t be sleeping much which seems like the right thing to do when you’re in the city that never sleeps.
