I highly recommend the country dancing lessons at Gilley's on Saturday nights! We went to "Dance with Jim" at 7 and all had a great time. Luckily, we found us some older sweet gentlemen to dance with each of us and help us perfect our Triple Step (that's the step we learned). We stayed to dance for a bit and moved the party on over to Jack's Backyard after that.
I'll take any chance to pull out my boots to wear with a cute dress. My friends and I all vowed to wear boots more. Here are a few dresses to don next time it's Boot-Scootin' time.
I love Amy Butler's bright and bold patterns. She has a new line of bedding made from organic cotton at Bed, Bath, and Beyond that's sure to cover your beds and guest beds very soon. Annie, this one's for you!
I'm thrilled that my friends Greg and Amanda are coming to visit me at the end of August! Since they are staying with me, what better excuse to pull the trigger on the headboard I've been wanting for awhile, the Greenwich Tufted Headboard in Oatmeal. Apparently this was the time to pull the trigger, since I scored free shipping AND a discount. Signed, sealed, shipped to my door, my new queen headboard for $202!
From the first review on Target.com: The headboard itself looks like it came from the most expensive furniture store in town. The microsuede material is luxurious, the detailing is elegant, and even with a super-deep mattress the headboard offers excellent height. I love the richness of the oatmeal color.
This headboard comes in loads of colors. Check it out.
I just picked up the new D Magazine which is full of the Best of Dallas '09 (more on that in a bit.) I love all the D Blogs and just stumbled across this article from January: Eat Out And Save: 59 Cheap Dallas Restaurant Deals from the Feb. '09 issue. This is a great read. Two of my faves, Caravelle and First Chinese Barbeque are on here. I'm ready to go!
And, not to be outdone, here are The Best Summer Cocktails in Dallas. Banana margarita? I'm in! I am thrilled to see the bellinis from Patrizio on the list. And the mojitos at La Cubanita? I think the best in town are at La Duni. Looks like time for a taste test!

AAAD Reader Gina must have known I needed a little pick-me-up/breather this work week. I have so many things bouncing around in my head and I want them all to come to fruition now now now! Here are a few tiddlebits from the awesome "image bookmarking" site, fffound.com. It's a great place to find inspiration and appear to be working, when you're really just spacing out. What?
Lots more on fffound to make you blink, stop, laugh, nod, feel.
