I will use any excuse to travel, so when Adam is sent somewhere on business and I have a babysitter, you better believe I'm tagging along for the weekend. If it's during the summer then the boys will come with us as well.
It was our first time visiting Texas and since we only had a few days, we decided to use that time to only explore the city of Dallas. Although, on Friday, when I arrived Adam surprised me and took me to Fort Worth (about 45 mins away) to see country singer Sammy Kershaw at a place called Billy Bob's. I'd never seen anything like it, especially in California, but I loved it. It had everything country and I just soaked it all in. So what do you eat before going to hear country music? Barbecue...Texas barbecue that is. We went to the Pecan Lodge for dinner and it was so delicious I had to use the corn bread to clean up the plate.
Saturday morning we grabbed a coffee and pastry and went to the Sixth Floor Museum. (TIP: buy tickets online before to skip the line). This kind of history fascinates me, so seeing the street where JFK was assassinated made it all so real.
Let me talk about the hotel we stayed at for moment...it was so cute. The rest of the afternoon we spent it there. We had lunch in the dining room and some coffee in their fancy lobby. Part of me wanted to get out and explore some more, but the other part of me wanted to just relax, since that's not a normal thing for us to do. So, that's exactly what we did!
On Sunday morning, I was slightly dreading the part of waking up early to go visit TD Jakes' church...The Potter's House. However, that's what Adam really wanted to do. I'm sure glad we did, because that ended up being my favorite part of the trip. If you saw my snapchats, then you saw the new kid's building tour we took. It was pretty much the coolest thing I've ever seen at a church.
See below for all the links of the places we visited in Dallas.
Oh yeah! How did I forget to tell you about our "15 minutes of fame"? We were in the Bishop Arts District looking at all the cute shops, when we ran into a production crew from the Food Network. It was such a cool experience. I only know its The Great Food Truck Race show in Dallas. I'll snap about it if I see it air. #fingerscrossed
There's so many other places to visit if, we had time, what are your favorite places to visit in Dallas or in nearby cities?
