Scenes from The Weekend



The girlies busy *working* at dinner. Millie insisted on a lime to adorn her drink...just like mama's.

The superstar of the weekend was, by far, the fantastic Fall weather that rolled in Friday afternoon. It was cool (but not too cool) and sunny + a little bit breezy...pretty much perfect. And it afforded us the ability to take part in one of my all-time happiest happy makers: eating outside.

Which we did as much as possible -- with the girlies on Friday at La Duni, again on Sunday morning in our backyard for brunch (which besides Millie falling off the big girl swing twice was pretty glorious) and then once more* for a crazy yummy Autumnal Sunday dinner (pork loin with blueberry compote, roasted potatoes, and sauteed brussel sprouts...) at lovely cousin Erin and boyfriend Ben's new house.

* technically we ate inside at ben and erin's but every single one of their massive sliding glass doors was open, so it felt just like we were outside.



Audrey and her besty Emma practicing their moves after the ballet on Sunday...

The rest of the weekend was pretty much a blur of ballet and football. Seriously there was a lot of both, as we had a full-day of TX/OU madness on Saturday, our normal weekly ballet classes + Audrey had her first Nutcracker rehearsal (she made it!) and we went to see Cinderella with our buddies at The Winspear on Sunday.

Whew...we're a little fried, but did I mention it's in the low 70's outside.

Yea, I'm pretty psyched about that.

what part of town is cousin Erin's fabulous house located? was it built in the fifties? it looks absolutely marvelous.

Joslyn said...

Patti -- it's in far east dallas... it's a 50's house by architect Cliff May. it's fantastic!!

Rachel said...

Yay for Audrey!

Eating outside is my favorite thing too. We pick our restaurants based on the patios.

I live in east Dallas, near Casa Linda. There are a lot of cool houses to be found over here. Mine's a fifties converted duplex, not a Cliff May, but fun nonetheless. I call it our doublewide.

I love the way your girlies look working, so
focused and the way they hold the pen.
Wonderful house, thanks for sharing your weekend.
