{On the Docket: August 2014}

Is there anybody else out there who can’t believe it’s August already?  holy smokes.

Well, it’s here.  We’re only 4 months away from another Christmas (huzzah!) and us Dallasites are enjoying a nice, cool summer.
And to celebrate the hopeful coming of fall and a summer that doesn’t make me want to kill myself…we’ll be partaking of a LOT of food (as per usual).

This time we’ve got my sister and dad on board!  Welcome to a world filled with vegetables, good fats and some meat.  Goodbye, Sugar!

Date Day: {Coffee House Cafe, Dallas World Aquarium & Taco Ocho}

Aren’t 3-day weekends just the best?
They make me feel like I can actually relax and just enough the day rather than trying to cram in all the chores and errands to make the week less hectic.

Memorial Day came in just the nick of time – the weekends have seemed endlessly packed and time to explore and eat and do the things we love has been lacking.  So, we committed Saturday of this long weekend to fun – fun in new brunch locales, with sea creatures and topping it off with some delicious tacos!

{Coffee House Cafe} was a life changer.  Why it’s only 10 minutes from our house and why we hadn’t been there in the two years of living in it’s proximity?  I’ll never forgive myself.

The Signature House Latte was a perfect start to a feast filled with rancheros and benedicts.

Our stuffed bellies made the drive to the {Dallas World Aquarium} late in the morning to avoid the crowds and strollers that were inevitably going to take over the place by noon. Continue reading

One thing I love about Texas despite the horrible summer heat?  Tex Mex, y’all!

Yesterday morning the hubs had to work, so it seemed perfectly logical to turn Saturday into a girl date brunch!  My sweet friend Mandie had been telling me about {Fernando’s} for months, but I hadn’t had the chance to go.  [insert blog-worthy deliciousness here!]
