Happy February! Can you believe how quickly January flew by?! Before we know it, it will be the holidays again. #timeslowdown With Valentine’s Day coming up, we’ll all be looking for that perfect dinner spot to celebrate, so today’s post is all about that! I’m sharing a few of our visits to a delicious restaurant, The Theodore, in Northpark Mall in Dallas.
The quirky and quaint décor, delicious menu items, and delectable desserts make it the perfect spot for a casual Valentine’s date out or resting place during your shopping at one of the top malls in Dallas. The upholstered booths and nail-edge tables had me oohing and aahhing, and how fab is the leather-bound menu! I also happen to be a huge fan of the mural painted on the ceiling in one of the booth cubbies that is a remake of the ceiling in Grand Central Station in New York City. After all, you know New York is one of my favorite places!
The menu is as equally delicious as the décor, and features a variety of contemporary American cuisine & cocktails. Our favorites are the margherita pizza and chicken pot pie. I know the photos are the best, but hopefully you can tell how delicious the plates are! Add this to your list of restaurants to try in Dallas.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great start to a new month.
Hey y'all! Hope your week is flying by, because, let's be real, the 8 to 5 is for the birds! My week has gone pretty well, except it seems that my to do list is growing rather than shrinking. But the weekend is near, and that means work-work-work. Luckily, it's all the work I love to do! :) None of that yucky 8 to 5 mess. Anyway, how about some fun! I've gathered up a few pictures, yes just a few--I must've taken a million, of our visit to the Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Gardens during our Dallas trip.
Since we went in the Fall, the Arboretum was fully decked out in some 90,000 pumpkins! It's nothing short of magical! Along with all of the typical garden and lawn views, an area of the Arboretum is covered, and I mean covered, in thousands upon thousands of pumpkins of every variety and of every size! There are houses made of pumpkins, mazes of hay bales, and even a horse drawn carriage. It's truly a beautiful sight to see! Along with the beautiful pumpkins, while perusing the gardens, we caught a glimpse of a sail boat race in nearby White Rock Lake. That was really something, an unexpected treat!
The entire grounds is is truly a sight to see, and if you're ever in the area, especially in the Fall, you must stop by for a little visit. I must add, when you visit be sure to arrive early, just as they open, or you'll be waiting in a very long line! We arrived just in the nick of time, right at opening, and by the time we left, the line was at least a half a mile long. #notexaggerating We were very glad we made the Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Gardens our first stop of the day, and definitely happy we put this on our itinerary. You'll be happy you did too!
