A Visit to the Big D-Quick Weekend

It was such a fun weekend trip!

First stop was the new Hazen Jewelry storefront! Wow. What a beautiful store!

Frances Phillips at Hazen Jewelry

We had a great chat with Frances Phillips! We also made a few purchases They had recently opened up a storefront in Dallas!

Then we drove out to Fin and Feather which is a neat fishing camp that was started in 1800s. It is about 20 minutes from downtown Dallas. It is private but reminded me of Mississippi lakes ..with very cool cottages built around one of the lakes.

Next we played tennis on a public court right in the middle of Highland Park/University Park. It was beautiful court surrounded by lush green trees and bushes!

Dinner was at Mr Messro which is now Doce Mesas! You can come as you are. They have The best guacamole and cerviche! It is apparently also a place to see Troy Aikman .

Saturday we walked the Katy Trail via the SMU campus. SMU was very well laid-out and lush! The Katy Trail a super cool 5 mile trail right in the middle of town. It was very well maintained and easy walking. We stopped at Mashburn and then walked to the Ice House.

We stopped off at

Blue Print and then Neimans on the way to dinner, we ate at Honor Bar. The tip there is to go early! It was delicious but always a line to get in. It’s in a cool shopping area called Highland Park Village .

Next was Central Market. This is similar to Whole Foods and also Trader Joe’s but way more! I could have stayed there hours! I bought some Hawaiian coffee with coconut plus a few other things!

Sunday was the highlight! We attended church and worshipped at The Men of Nehemiah service. It was a very spiritual! It is a very impressive program in Dallas.

I recommend going to Dallas ! It was such a beautiful place!
