Weekend Recap 10/4 – 10/6 Texas Edition

Hey Ya’ll

sweater, leggings, shoes, suitcase

I can’t believe I am just now getting around to writing this blog post but it has just been such a busy week playing catch up. If you follow me on Instagram then you probably know that last weekend I went to Dallas for Family Weekend at SMU. We definitely ate our way through Dallas so keep reading for some great restaurant suggestions for the next time you head south.

Thursday morning we left bright and early and arrived in Dallas with time to have a super yummy lunch at Bird Bakery (which is so cute inside) and do a little shopping. We then went to dinner at Bistro 31. I got the Lobster Bolognese with gluten free pasta and it was heavenly! Friday we headed over to Biscuit Bar which is so fun inside. We went to the campus store, I got to see my sister’s sorority house, we had lunch at Velvet Taco (a must!), and of course did some more shopping. Tecovas, a handmade boot store, happened to be having their grand opening Friday (the best part was the mini Topo Chicos they gave you). That night we went to Saint Ann’s with a few of my sister’s friends and their families (the lighting and thunder that night really made it feel like an authentic Texas experience 😉).

Saturday was super busy but also super fun. We started with brunch at Origin Kitchen and then we went to a party at one of my sister’s sorority sister’s houses. After a little bit of resting back at the hotel and a quick stop at Impeccable Pig (the dress I wore home is from the Impeccable Pig), we went to the Boulevard (tailgating at SMU) and then the game. We were all starving and left the game early to go to Torchy’s Tacos (another great taco place). Sunday started off with muffins from Unrefined (great for people with allergies) before doing some errands at Trader Joe’s and Boot Barn. For lunch we went to Mudhen and then checked out the Dallas Farmers Market. We then made our final stop at my sister’s dorm to drop her off before heading to the airport.

See you next time Dallas!

Weekend Recap 9/14 – 9/15

Hey Ya’ll

So excited to be writing my first Weekend Update post! I’m not going to be doing these every week but I’ll definitely try to get one up when I can.

I started the weekend off with an early morning at Target. Target celebrated 20 years of designer collaborations by bringing back 20 limited edition collaborations. The collection was released Saturday morning and based on their past collaboration collections I knew I had to get to Target as soon as they opened. Below I’m sharing what I got.

The rest of my Saturday was spent volunteering for Special Olympics Golf through my school and having a relaxing night working on creating my blog and watching 12 Strong (such an amazing movie).

Every Sunday morning I volunteer at our local hospital on the Labor and Delivery floor (the cuteness!). Later, my parents and I went to Nick’s in Laguna Beach (definitely recommend). We got the fried blue cheese olives to start and they were amazing! We also decided to splurge and get dessert because they have the best butter cake, like seriously it’s to die for. And lastly, the most exciting part of my weekend, I started this blog!
