It’s freeeeezing here in Dallas and it made me think about my favorite seasonal song, “Baby It’s Cold Outside”! In doing a quick youtube search I found this great version with one of my favorites…Lyle Lovett. With both of us being Aggies, he always makes me feel a bit “kum ba yah” …
I instantly fell in “mad girl crush” with Kat Edmonson! Besides the fact that she’s another Texan, I’m drawn to her coy and elegant tone mixed with a bit of gravel in her voice…. She’s ‘old school’ and I love it!
I’ve been all about “stepping outside of the box” lately and trying new things, so I was thrilled when my good friend, Trey, asked me at the last minute to go to the Sammons Cabaret Series performance last week! Tracy Fulton, the master of ceremonies, has put together a four month series of talented vocalist that are sure to please. The environment is a traditional American Cabaret setting with small cocktail tables and low lighting…AND drinks and snacks come with your ticket!
Gary Floyd topped the bill last week performing the songs of Harry Warren. I was amazed at how many songs I knew…like “You’ll Never Know” (possibly the sweetest song ever!) and “At Last”. The amazingly talented Julie Bonk accompanied him. Julie is well-known for teaching Norah Jones and will mesmerize you on the piano!
I challenge you to step outside of the box and try new things! Life is short and there are so many things on this earth for us to experience. Get as much in as you can before it’s too late!
Dont’ forget about the shopping event of the season this Saturday! The Dallas Flea! You’ll find clothing, jewelry, children’s wear, paper goods, pet collars, vintage decor, live music and mobile food and vintage vendors!

This event gets better and better each time! Will I see you there this Saturday?
