Delicious Thrifting

This past weekend I ventured out with two lovely ladies on a most successful brunch and shopping date.

We started out the day at Cafe Brazil in Deep Ellum. The area has such colorful and vibrant buildings, art, and potential. I know the city has taken great steps to making it a more friendly and interesting place, and it is paying off. I hope more businesses and people come so it can become a mini Austin for us DFW residents to enjoy. Especially local food restaurants.

I’m still day dreaming about my delicious veggie breakfast tacos and sweet potato fries.

That tasty treasure fueled me throughout our entire day of browsing, window shopping, and purchasing. I am almost always overwhelmed at stores and malls, and leave the place exhausted with some crankiness. Not Saturday. I think it was due to the food and company.

We traveled down the street to Lulu B’s store. I had been once before, but saw all new things this time around. If I wasn’t trying to save money for some serious Christmas shopping and trying to de-clutter my junk, I would have left with tons of great finds. Instead, I took some pictures.

Can you tell how much I love mugs? My husband and I have a somewhat goofy and nice collection.

After Lulu B’s, we drove out to the Galleria in Dallas. No photos were taken. Just lots and lots of walking, avoiding the tons of shoppers, and enjoying all the stores that a humongous mall houses.

Delicious day of food, thrifting, and shopping = success

Pushing for Fall

The first day of fall was 97 degrees and sweaty, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying a visit to the Arboretum with my parents. We got to see the Chihuly, still super cool looking, and some great fall decorations. I think the glass sculptures are a great addition to the flowers and plants at the Arboretum. They did great with the installations.
There were hundreds of pumpkins. They were lining pathways, in trees, and even creating the walls of small houses. It was intense pumpkin love in Dallas. I’m just itching for fall to get underway for the love of cool weather, crisp smells, and soup. I just wish Mother Nature would get the memo. I’m doing my part, though. The house is being decorated for Halloween and fall. Nick and I bought two gallons of the best apple cider ever (the only ingredient is apples), and I’m planning on figuring out a way to make pumpkin frozen yogurt! Seriously though, that apple cider, it is intense and delicious.
