Rain | Sun

I think it’s a little funny it rained for almost a solid month here. Mostly, because now the sun is shining and life is really starting to feel a bit normal again.

I went through a few really, really rough months. I even went to California to visit some friends to try and get my mind off it for a weekend.

I’m really beginning to find my groove in my neighborhood. I attribute it mostly to Local Press + Brew opening. I was so used to having a coffee shop within walking distance – this really, really cheers me up. It has a walk up window and everything.

Uchi opened in Dallas and my supervisor was kind enough to treat our team to dinner to celebrate making it a year (and some change for me). Sometime little things like that remind you how lucky you are.

Around Dallas: Weekend Coffee

I love coffee shops. Typically I stick to the ones I love in Deep Ellum (Murray Street and Mokah). Since Weekend Coffee isn’t far from my work I thought I would give it a try.

Boy is it cute! In terms of coffee options, it’s pretty basic (which I love – I don’t need a million ingredients in my coffee/latte/mocha). Plus the staff was super friendly without being annoyingly friendly.

I definitely want to go back when I have time to sit/explore Ten Over Six.

Donuts in Deep Ellum

When Casey and I moved to Deep Ellum, I said there needed to be a donut shop. Well, a few weeks ago my dreams came true and Glazed Donut Works opened its doors.

Not only did we get a donut shop, but Glazed is deeply committed to quality. Granted, they tend to sell out because the donuts are so good plus the shop is cute to boot. If you haven’t been, you need to go. Like now.

I was lucky enough to sample a donut before opening day!

Glazed was open just in time to treat Casey to a very sugary birthday breakfast.

I waited in this line on the official grand opening day- how cute is that chalkboard! They converted an old photo studio and the look fits in perfectly with our neighborhood.

Welcome to Deep Ellum, Glazed Donut Works! I will definitely be seeing you often!

Bacon, Eggs & Buzzbrews

Casey and I love being able to walk to so many restaurants. This comes in especially hand after a late night when we don’t want to make breakfast the next morning. One of the many spots to grab a great breakfast in Deep Ellum is Buzzbrews. Granted, they serve things other than just breakfast items, but sometimes you just need bacon.

Of course if you are down at Buzzbrews you need to stop at the American flag mural. That, and mostly Casey just likes taking photos 🙂
