After an afternoon with trips to Home Depot, Restoration Hardware and Pottery Barn searching for paint colors, a good nap with the Sixth Sense in the background, we headed to downtown D-town for dinner. Since Lee and Kristen live there, it will become an attractive destination, and an excuse to head to one of my favorite parts of town. Tonight it was the Porch, which was chic, in a downtown Dallas, country-store kind of way. I should have taken pictures–the brick walls, school house lighting, chalkboard on the wall, red-pleather booths, all added to the delicious charm. I started with a cuban sparkler cocktail–basically a combination of a mojito with champagne and raspberries. David picked a bottle of Australian wine (we can’t remember the name), and then we moved to Cocodrillo, which was very, very good for the price. Highly recommend. Dessert was a s’mores sundae–can’t go wrong with that.
Tomorrow, our lives as a married couple will truly begin. I think we are both ready to get back to our regular workouts (for me, a regular run and training for a 10k), and our normal attempts at healthy lifestyles. We have a ton of thank-you notes to write, on top of regular work schedules and travel. It’s gonna be a busy week.
