Dallas Museum of Art

Sarah and I decided to have a girl's night out. She recently was drafted to have a one-year access to the DMA as well as free parking, and if you must know is hard to get free parking in Downtown Dallas, but anyways it was really fun and I had an opportunity to see art in a different way. Let me tell you there was a lot of interested art and statues. My favorite section was the Egypt section. There were so many art to photgraph but I chose to post my favorites and hope that you all enjoy the photos. After the DMA we decided to have dinner at Gourmet Pizza Chicago's , it is a very cozy place with reasonable prices in the heart of Las Colinas right across from the aLoft.

Waxing The City

Had my wax appointment this morning and I was not looking forward to it because what girl looks forward to a wax at least I don't. The girl I went with previously no longer is employed at this location so I tried someone new her name is Melissa and she was awesome! My experience was more than pleasant. I definitely will be going back to her. If you need a good wax for anything from eyebrows, legs to brazilians this is the place to go. They do all the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders from what I was told from my previous waxer so you know this place is great. They have a cute refreshment area and are very professional. Check our their website if your interested appointments can be done over the phone or online 24/7. They are also having a good deal coming up this Fall to get 50% off if you refer or being referred. Check it out and you won't be disappointed.

Lunch Date @Smashburger

Had an awesome time with Sarah yesterday we met up for lunch at Smashburger and some shopping at Ikea. How I love Ikea it is the best. But FYI to anybody that has not been to Smashburger is a must burger joint. I love burgers and definitely will be going back for some more. I ordered their Classic burger, but I think I'll be ordering their BBQ, Bacon & Cheddar burger next time. Their unique fries is what I'm going back for. Yum!

Ringling Bros & Barnum Bailey Circus

I was very happy to know that the circus was in town, but not just any circus but the most famous circus the Ringling Bros & Barnum Bailey Circus. I decided since I've never been to the circus that this will be the perfect time to take my lil angel. He probably will not remember it and I was sure he will get uneasy. That's exactly what happened but either way we had fun.

He sure enjoyed his snowcone and the best part is that I get to use the cup as my coffee cup
