White Party and Apartment Hunting in Big D

Hey kids! Quick post for this little girl today. I have SO many emails to catch up on, blogs to design and work to get done before my 15 day long work trip to Tampa, Florida this Friday! I wanted to share some snippets from my weekend with you guys!

Friday night I went to a white party in downtown Dallas as Brandi's date! Brandi won Helene's giveaway for Dallas Social clubs and was so kind to invite me along! I was thrilled to get to go! I also finally got to meet Michael, Helene's husband! He was so kind, as I assumed he would be! We had dinner, drinks and danced the night away! 

I also tried to figure out my new camera...........



Also I think I found my new apartment! Get this though, I went to put a lease on the until that had a view of the downtown Dallas skyline, and wouldn't you know it, someone put a lease on it about an hour before i got there! Instead, I think I am going to put a lease on a unit overlooking fair park, not as exciting but I'll be able to see the ferris wheel year round! Here are some pictures of my new neighborhood. I'll have a mohawk in no time!  


And what would apartment hunting be without an apartment hunting selfie (and a pic of my giraffes)? Have a great three day week, y'all!

  1. I love the concept of the Social Club white parties, even though I look awful in white. I'm jealous you got to hang with Helene.

    I spent a day in a drunken haze in Deep Ellum many moons ago on a work trip.

  3. Apartment hunting is so stressful! I'm currently in the process as well. I'm glad you finally found a place though! Your new neighborhood looks fun! I'm hoping to head back south, most likely to Dallas next year! Maybe we'll be neighbors haha

  19. Guuuurrrlll... those photog skills are the bees knees! Love me a good white party. You all looked fab!

  20. I remember when Deep Elum was not the place you wanted to be in Dallas. I was a kid then but totally remember sitting in the car at a stoplight and watching this crazy guy with a lime green Mohawk go by and stick is tongue out at us and do the rockstar sign with his hand. I haven't been back to Dallas in ages but I hear that area of town is pretty cool now.

  34. umm sorry but i didn't read any of this because your title contained the phrase "big d" and i'm immature and thought of dirty things first and had to come and comment on that. BYYYYYYYE.

  35. That white party looks awesome! I'm sure they do that in NYC but something tells me it would be a bit shit-showier here...and not in a good way.

  36. A white party? That makes me nervous. I imagine spilling something on myself within 5 minutes of getting there. Your new neighborhood looks awesome.
