Last weekend, I spent my last summer Friday for work on the road to Dallas to enjoy some great food, retail therapy, and visit family! I haven’t been to Dallas in a while and be able to really explore, so I was soo ready to get there after four hours of sweltering on the Megabus! When I did, I settled in my room, did my hair and headed over to Latin restaurant La Duni, by my lonesome, for a great meal and mojito to kickoff my night.
If you guys don’t know, I LOVE traveling alone…I’m on my own schedule and can eat and shop as much as I want without a secondary unwanted option lol! Friday night, I went to a bar called Chelsea Corner, which was actually so fun I partied there again when David arrived Saturday night. If you’re in the Dallas area, you gotta check it out during your visit, play a little pool and relax (if you call relaxing me trying to tickle david drunk with my feet in public “relaxing”) on their gorge patio!
Saturday, I jump started my day with a nice strong Mint Julep at the cutest southern brunch spot called Sissy’s you gotta try the Short Rib Hash and a piece of fried chicken! then spent the entire day shopping!! Everywhere was having the most amazing summer sales and I got to check out some cool boutiques where I unfortunately spent wayyyy more money than I anticipated the clothes were just toooo good! Also, thank you to everyone who commented on Instagram helping me find such cute boutiques!!
