This weekend my momma is coming to town and I am so excited! It has been awhile since we have had a  “girls weekend” filled with good shopping, good food and great wine. Yesterday I said I was a daddy’s girl. Welp, today I am a momma’s girl. Some things never change? Regardless, my momma and I get along well and always have — aside from the b*tchy teen years. Sorry about that, mom. Happens to the best of us. Anyways, I cannot wait to spend the weekend with her. It’s great when she comes it town because it is an excuse to escape “my Dallas” and jump into different “getaway Dallas.” I don’t have the itch to go out to bars or see everyone. I can lay low and just be. I always need a weekend “away” everyone once in a while! A little R&R with my momma is exactly what I need!! Now another positive aspect of momma coming to town: we have very similar taste in clothes so it tends to work out well when we go shopping together. This weekend we might also make a quick stop by Dry Bar for a little refreshing hair-do. And it wouldn’t be fair to have great hair & keep it cooped up inside– so we made reservations at Hattie’s in the Bishop Arts District. I cannot wait to cross this restaurant off my Dallas foodie list!

Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!

“You don’t have to be rich to sparkle,” how perfect does that describe my night tonight?! I may not be high-rollin’ but I can still put on a sparkly dress paired with some fabulous jewels and have a fantastic night! Whatever you’re doing tonight, staying in or going out… have fun! It’s the end of the year and this is the time to celebrate everything that’s happened over the past year — good or bad. Take a break from worrying and just enjoy yourself… and a few cocktails. Doctor’s orders. I’ll be out in Dallas tonight and I can’t wait for my first NYE in the “Big D!” I feel like I am bound to have a good night, right?? Yes, I think so! Cheers to a great 2012 and even better 2013!!

See you next year!! :)

Holiday Party Cheers!

Cheers-01holidaycocktailimage via

Tonight I am going to my first big-girl holiday party! I am so excited! As you can imagine, I have been planning my outfit for weeks. Green pleated dress with a sequin underlay and belted at the waist. I got the cutest Kate Spade earrings (on sale @ the APoT blogger event a few weeks back!) that I think will compliment the dress perfectly. I am trying out the Dry Bar in Dallas for the first time tonight. I figure, why not get all dolled up? After all, the opportunity is rare!

I am very much looking forward to this weekend. Holiday parties with festive cocktails coupled with relaxation and the Chihuly exhibit adds up to a great weekend in my books! With football season coming to an end it means my weekends will finally be spent in Dallas which I could not be more ready for.. finally!

Below are some “skinny” holiday cocktails that I have been dying to create. Cheers!!

Skinny Eggnog
Skinny Pumpkin Spiced Latte
Healthy Hot Toddy
Rosemary Pear Sparkler
Voli Hot Cocoa
Pomegranate Champagne Punch
The Skosmopolitan Cocktail
Simply Simple Gingerbread Martini
Spicy Ginger Vanilla Margarita

Have a great weekend!!
