Over 4th of July weekend, John and I enjoyed a Dallas staycation. He took two rare days off work, and I tried my best not to work on my manuscript. We crammed lots of simple fun into our staycation—two movies (a 4th of July miracle), grilling with friends and family, shopping, gardening and lots of reading.
Saturday we spent the afternoon wandering around all the cute boutiques in the Bishop Arts District of Dallas.
We stuffed ourselves at Eno’s Pizza. Check out the Pig Smiley pizza. Best pizza name ever. Spicy sausage, ham, cheese and local honey. If you’ve never had honey drizzled on your pizza, you are missing out.
Since John had never driven over the new Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge (designed by Spanish artist, architect and engineer Santiago Calatrava), we made sure to do that. He drove while I took pictures from the sun roof like a tourist. It is truly stunning.
We wasted time in Lost, one of our favorite antique stores located on Riverfront. We only browsed. I’m still patting myself on the back for not buying anything.
Yes, I even passed up this table of Fiesta pieces!
I bought my annual Life is Good t-shirt at Whole Earth, along with my new lake hat:) These summer essentials make me hap-pap-py. Da doo dada da, dee da da dee da da…
How’s your summer going?

P.S. The two movies we saw: Jersey Boys ✯✯✯✯✯ and The Grand Budapest Hotel ✯✯✯✯. Loved them both!
