Dallas, Lifestyle

Professional Weekender

I love weekends. I wish I could have weekends every day, on the hour, every hour. I wish they never never never never never had to end.

Alas, that would be the perfect world (and all of my bills would be paid, dishes washed, laundry done, home renovations completed, and Justin Timberlake would be serenading me in my living room). Hey, a lady can dream!

Halloween was low key and fun! I was able to spend a quiet evening with a few of my blog besties and husbands eating good food, drinking, and providing commentary on the horror flick Insidious 2. We even game planned for a group costume for next year (my vote: Little Green Army Men, but that will definitely be vetoed).

Following a late night out, I did what every Dallasite on a Saturday should do following a night of drinking….brunch. Granted this was a planned brunch with a few of my lovely forever friends, but still nonetheless it encompassed what has become my unofficial favorite pastime. It was much needed and we finally were able to try out Oddfellows in Bishop Arts District. The wait was not fun at all since Dallas had a little chill come through and everyone wanted to sit inside – leading to a nearly 2 hour wait just to be seated. 

Oddfellows was good, but I will be the first to say that I’ve had better. I selected the Salmon & Goat Cheese Scramble and on a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 being the best), I would give it a 6. Decent flavor for the flaky salmon, the goat cheese definitely added a nice balance to the dish, but what I’m not even adding into this scale are the herb potato hash (not pictured) I ordered to accompany this meal. OMG, those potatoes were amazing – so good, they deserved their own scale for a 1o out of  10.

Alas, a brunch victory was not in the cards for me because Sunny managed to order the Buffalo Mac & Cheese with a killer Bloody Mary (made with their own mix). You can’t win them all!

Following the meal, we squeezed in a visit to Zoomos Pop-Up Shop (who I recently discovered because they started following me on Instagram). One of the cutest places in Bishop Arts District and my friends know me so well because I scored the most amazing t-shirt with their help. Go and check them out!



This was a perfect end to my weekend and I learned so much. It was a good time to reflect on the people that I have in my life and realized that quality is much better than quantity. I stumbled across this little quote that summed up my life and friendships lately.


Yes. Truth. My friendship has been taken advantage of and I’ve learned that sometimes you need a hurtful moment to slap you back into reality. I don’t need to be friends with everyone and quite frankly, everyone doesn’t need to be friends with me. The people who want to be in my life are there through the good and bad….and invite you out to brunch!

    The shirt suits you all. You don’t really need a lot of friends.
