Mini Vacation

On Tuesday we went to Dallas for a mini vacation. We got a good deal for a single night at the Lorenzo Hotel, and we wanted to go see the Mexico show at the Dallas Museum of Art.

We left Tuesday afternoon, got to our hotel, and went swimming for a few hours before dinner at Village Burger Bar and dessert at Sablon Chocolate Lounge. Then back to our room.

Our room had a lot of mirrors.

Yesterday we got up and dressed and ate kolaches from downstairs before heading to the museum.  We spent almost four hours there. I had no idea that The Two Fridas was so big, nearly six feet by six feet.

On the way home we stopped for lunch at Golden Chick because we’d never heard of it, and they turned out to have amazing yeast rolls, so we brought two dozen home with us. It was a good decision; they went over well at dinner.

And the Kitchen Sink

Kitchen Sink shakes for me and the birthday boy today. 

Happy birthday to the best husband ever!


Happy Birthday

Today I turned 39; hopefully the last year of my thirties will be the best year of my thirties. 

Also I got a monster cake. 


Catching Up on the Sewing

Tonight I made some kitchen curtains for our friends who moved in next door, made a pizza fabric keychain for my darling husband, a wrist rest for me, and I finished up a bag that has been hanging out in my fabric stash forever


I also made a cream cheese pound cake. Totes delicious. I recommend making it in as large a pan as possible because the crusty top is the absolute best part. 


Whole Foods

Today we visited Whole Foods for the first time. Got some cheese and crostini and bath bombs. Thumbs up. 

 


Panclocks

This morning I made panclocks. Little ones.
