Chris' first trip to Texas wouldn't have been completed without a stop at Whataburger...so that's where we began our trip.
We actually received an extra day of Texas fun thanks to the crazy weather in the northeast. We originally planned to arrive in the wee hours of Saturday morning, but a cancelled flight had us in Dallas before noon on Friday. Yeehaw for even more adventures in the Lone Star state.
Dinner at Gloria's, a Latin Tex Mex restaurant, with the McWhorter's was full of lots of laughs and some delicious tacos! And we certainly didn't want to miss dessert - Flaming Honey Banana for two, please!

We headed downtown after the tour for our main event of the weekend - the #sharpduet wedding! Tarra was one of my bridesmaids in October so you know I couldn't have been more excited to celebrate with her and her new hubby, Evan! The ceremony at Perkins Chapel on SMU's campus was perfect for the two of them with lots of personal touches. And the reception was certainly a good time as well.
The next morning, we made our way over to Pecan Lodge for some BBQ goodness in Deep Ellum. I loved this unique area of Dallas. And even though we stood in line for a half hour and the order taker got our order wrong, we STILL loved the BBQ. Good stuff for sure!
After stuffing our faces, we made our way to Dealey Plaza. It was a gorgeous day to roam around the grassy knoll area before our tour began at The Sixth Floor Museum. I had taken this tour before, but I was equally as fascinated with all the history and information that is provided. We spent nearly three hours just taking it all in before making our way to the airport.

We arrived at the airport in plenty of time to savor our Nothing Bundt Cakes goodies. Big thanks to the McWhorter's for suggesting this amazing spot to us. My sweet tooth was in heaven!! We picked up the lemon and carrot cake flavors though the decision was incredibly tough. Both were phenomenal, but lemon was THE best without a doubt!
We are headed back to Dallas for another of my bridesmaid's nuptials.
Do you have any restaurant recommendations for our fall trip?
