Limited Time Only!

December 17th, 2013

If you’re one of the people that haven’t ventured across the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge lately, then this is what you’re missing!


Trinity Groves is quickly becoming the hot destination for foodies and those always seeking to try something new.  Phil Romano and his investing team picked the cream of the crop of hundreds that applied to open a concept restaurant for this incubator.  Find an interview about this new venture here.


One of my favorites among the bunch is Kitchen LTO.  It’s a permanent pop-up kitchen that operates for a limited time only and changes on a quarterly basis.  Not only do they have a different chef every quarter, but they also completely change the design of the restaurant, giving young up and coming chefs and interior design talent a great opportunity to showcase their skills!


Sunday I had the honor of sitting at the judge’s table joining many exceptional members of Dallas’ restaurant society at the 2nd Round Chef Tasting Day One at Kitchen LTO.  Each chef still in the running presented a dish that represented a premier selection on the menu that they would build, if chosen, and answered questions from the panel.


I can’t give you much information about the candidates (or I’d have to kill you…never a good option) but I can assure you that we’re in for a treat!  I will tell you that my favorite dish of the day was an oyster pot pie that was packed full of seafood.  Delish!


Thank you, owner and hostess extraordinaire, Casie Caldwell, for choosing me to join you guys on Sunday!  I’m looking forward to hearing the announcement of the next chef and visiting soon for delicious bites!!


My advise?  Get to Trinity Groves soon and check out Kitchen LTO!

Tutu Sweet!

December 12th, 2013

What an amazing example of support and love…

We all deal with life’s challenges in different ways.  I love that this guy chose the gift of laughter to help his wife through her battle.

Jingle Dwell!

December 9th, 2013

“…It is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35)



Imagine “home” meaning little more than a mattress on a cold floor, a sheet tacked up for a curtain and no food in the pantry.  Unfortunately this is reality for far too many families in our own city or town.  You can help change the meaning of “home” for a family this Christmas by making Jingle Dwell, Dwell With Dignity’s online giving tree,  your charity of choice!


For as little as $10 you can provide basic essentials needed in a home for a family that is transitioning from board approved, social services agencies to self-sufficiency.


Start adorning the Jingle Dwell tree here!


Lucky Me!

December 6th, 2013

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!

Letter Perfect

October 22nd, 2013

One of my favorite things is my Jonathan Adler reversible letter pillow!  I chose ‘K’ for Kelley, although I wish I had the whole alphabet!  Some may think they’re a little pricey ($125) for a single pillow, but trust me…they are so worth it!  You’ll never tire of this classic style and will find yourself moving it throughout your house for years to come!



If you’re like me and would love the whole alphabet, or feel the need to spell out a special message…something like, ‘Welcome to Jamaica!  Have a nice day!’, then check out this PB Teen version on sale for $23 for a limited time only!
