i went to new york city.


niki and corinne take texas: part three.

saturday morning we drove down to austin, ate some good texas bbq, and went to my cousin’s baseball game. it was so great to see my uncle and his family, it had been several years since we were all together. after some family time, we said goodbye and then went on the hunt for friday night lights locations. we were able to find tim riggins’ and coach taylor’s houses and it was awesome. they are super close to each other. totally worth being creepers and taking pictures.

after that we went into austin and stopped at the capitol building. i had never seen it from behind. there is a large park behind it, it is so green and beautiful. then we found a recommended food truck called gourdough’s and it was pretty wonderful. after a long walk along the river, we headed back to dallas. we met valentina at velvet taco for dinner (again) and then headed home.

the next morning i took the to the airport where they flew off to virginia and it was sad. but i am so glad i got to show them around my dallas area before i move.


niki and corinne take texas: part two.

friday we went to breadwinners for brunch and it was, of course, most delicious. then we went to my work so my mom and niki could meet my coworkers and see my little office. from there, we went to the dallas museum of art. i love that place. plus they have a beautiful monet that i love. then we did a little more shopping before going to the bishop arts district.

the bishop arts district is one of my favorite places in dallas. it reminds me of both park city and provo center street. plus it has this pie shop that is so cute and has the best apple pie i have ever had. besides my mom’s of course…. it’s called the emporium and i’m glad i got to share it with my mom and niki.
