Dallas this Week

This week I worked in the Dallas area and I got to visit with my brother and BFF, Tiffany. I love it that Tiff and I enjoy the exact same activities… discussing decorating, fashion, & fabric, watching television, doing nothing, and drinking wine. We love to be indoors and when people talk about having kids, we both cringe.

Tiffany worked really hard in the kitchen to prepare us this lovely dinner. Just kidding… it’s take out, another thing we have in common.


I LOVE her kitchen table chairs


Thumb Print Cookies from Snow White Bakery in Abilene, TX. Tiffany's mom was in Abilene, last week and returned with cookies. Tiff and I met at Abilene Christian University. Thumb Print Cookies from Snow White were a favorite! Fall our senior year, we made a pledge deliver us Thumb Print Cookies and Diet Coke. Don't worry we weren't mean, as I pledge I took orders too. :)




Tiffany’s Grandmother gave her this amazing antique sofa. Tiffany just had it recovered. I'm pretty sure, it's the cutest sofa I've ever seen.



Love the back!



Fabrics for throw pillows





~Funny Story~


As Tiffany and I were lounging in the big-comfy chair, browsing Etsy, and drinking wine her husband, B, entered the den with a question. He said, “I have one for y’all...'Two roads diverged in a wood and I took the one less traveled by... and that has made all the difference.' Who said that?”

Tiffany immediately responded with, “Why would you ask us?” We laughed. B left the den. Tiff turned to me and said, “At first I thought he was telling us a riddle.” I said, “At first I thought it was a joke.” We laughed until we cried. Good times! For the record, the quote is from Robert Frost and yes I had to Google it. Tiff and I have other things to worry about like fabric, decorating, and thumb print cookie.

Gotta have us some girl time once in a while!
