Three Days in Dallas

A couple weeks ago I had an awesome little three-day getaway to visit my best friend Katie in Dallas. She works at the Dallas Zoo and I got an fantastic behind-the-scenes tour. And we ate delicious cupcakes from Sprinkles, a famous cupcakery, and visited Dinosaur Valley State Park. It was so fun to hang out my bestie and her adorable dog, Ruby -- neither of whom I get to see often enough!

Here's a picture from my zoo tour! That's me on the left, Katie on the right, and Katie's friend Shannon in the middle with the adorable penguin. It was so downy-soft!


Check out that tongue!

Yum yum! We had a delicious meal of gourmet pizza and this tasty dessert pizza (topped with mascarpone and Nutella among other things) at a place called Cane Rosso.

Sprinkles and its snazzy Cupcake ATM!

We just so happened to visit Sprinkles on its 10th anniversary, and in exchange for waiting in a rather lengthy line we got our cupcakes for free! I got a Cuban Coffee cupcake and it was amazing! Just thinking about that coffee frosting is making my mouth water.

On the last day of my trip we went to Dinosaur Valley State Park in Glen Rose, about an hour and a half southwest of Dallas. The park is home to lots of fossilized dinosaur prints.



The Texas bluebonnets were in bloom and the fields of blue were stunning!

Here's Katie and Ruby.

These pretty reddish-orange flowers are known as Indian paintbrush.

More gorgeous bluebonnets.
