Farewell Dallas!


..from the great state of Texas - Dallas, to be exact.

For the sake of time, I'm going to give you a short but sweet update of my trip.

This was my first plane ride in over 8 years, and my first trip to Texas ever.
I must say it was much different than I expected.
I didn't see one cowboy hat, pair of boots, perfectly teased hair AND I didn't hear a southern accent once.
Either I was hiding in a ditch or the stereotypes are simply not true.

When I arrived Friday night, we went to Sfuzzi's to chat and grab some drinks. 
We wanted to pace ourselves. After all, we had 4 days.
We ended the night with a candlelight dinner of Wendy's. Just my style ;)
Saturday we hit up Galleria, a mall in Dallas.
I was IN LOVE with that Christmas tree and the rush of Christmas shoppers.
It truly put me in the holiday spirit.
We ate lunch rink side at a delicious mexican restaurant.
If you know me, you know I love me some enchiladas, beans and rice. 
I'm a woman of extreme class, what can I say ;)
 After probably 5 episodes of Law & Order SVU, we forced ourselves to get ready, have a few pregaming shots and hit downtown. 
We went to Del Frisco's Grille, Frankie's Sports Bar & Stoneleigh P before heading to Steak n Shake for a late night bite. 
Frankie's had the most AMAZING popcorn chicken & fries. 
Not to mention, they had my favorite liquors on a chilled tap.
Note: If you have Fireball, Absolut & Tuaca on tap, I'll fall in love.
We woke up early Sunday and watched a few more episodes of SVU before ending up at Nick & Sam's Grill for brunch.
Could you believe that we each ordered a Mimosa and they brought us an entire wine decanter each filled with delicious Mimosa's. The best part, they were only $6 a pop. My mouth about dropped to the floor. 
After brunch we went to Concrete Cowboy to continue the fun and then ended up back at Frankie's Sports Bar for more popcorn chicken and fries.. & fireball :)
We woke up Monday morning to find snow on her car. It dropped from 60 to 25 degrees all in a matter of a few hours.

I can't say that my fear of planes has subsided, but I definitely had a fun trip!
