TOURIST STYLE: Bar Belmont in the Belmont Hotel, Dallas, TX

I have been so delinquent with posts this week! I am still recovering from this weekend I guess… my mom came in to town to celebrate her 50th birthday and 3 friends surprised her by coming down as well. So needless to say we were busy busy busy! I will have a lot of Dallas tourist posts coming soon! But I found my new FAVORITE bar in Dallas… Bar Belmont in the Belmont Hotel. It has the best view of the Dallas skyline on their gorgeous outdoor bar patio.

The Belmont Hotel is a little historic boutique hotel. Its been around since the 1940s!

ENTERTAINING: Weather The Storm

With the huge storm hitting the east coast this weekend (making it perfect weather to snuggle up and read my blog!) I thought I would dedicate a post to snow days and curling up at home! A perfect weekend to stay warm, light up the ol’ fire place and think up all the ways to redecorate your home!

Here are a few of my favorite winter-y snow day things to do:

YUM. Nothing better than a hot cup of cocoa on a snowy day. Try this crockpot recipe for the easiest recipe around.

INSTAPOST: Largest Honky Tonk in the World!

This past weekend we went to Billy Bob’s, the Largest Honky Tonk in the world! We wore our cowboy boots, saw bull riding, ate real Texas BBQ, listened to live country music, and even two-stepped! Here are a few instagram photos from the weekend.

LOVE LETTERS TO HOME.

If you’re in the Dallas/ Ft. Worth area at any point this place is a MUST SEE! One of the best times in Texas so far! Check out their website and upcoming shows at ¬†WWW.BILLYBOBSTEXAS.COM
