Venus Trapped in Mars

Did You Know Sarah Loves Dallas?

Pardon me if I'm a little all over the place today, but I'm really excited because just one work day separates me, CB and a flight to Norfolk, Virginia to spend 6 days at my mom's beach house! Although it is a 6 day long trip, I've managed to only use 3 precious vacation days at work. Please tell me I'm not the only one that gets a thrill out of planning long trips by only using minimal work vacation time?? It makes me feel like some sort of work vacation day sorcerer. 

Ok, yeah that might just be me.

Although CB and I have been to VA Beach together, this will be our first trip when the weather wasn't projected to be 52 degrees and rain. 

(I think that the weather is still calling for rain all weekend, but I'm trying to pretend to be oblivious to this right now...) 

I've got a couple fun little things to share with you guys, so I am going to do my favorite post to write (read: easiest post to write) a lovely little numbered list! 

1. I was featured in this month's issue of D Magazine! Click HERE  for the full interview! 


D Magazine is easily the most popular local Dallas magazine, and I tend to use their facebook page like my entertainment bible. For the very first time, they decided to pick a "subscriber of the month," and they picked me! 



I got to tour their offices, which were so gorgeous. Their office, located right in the heart of downtown, was bright, open and had fantastic downtown views. They had these adorable bikes that anyone could take whenever they just needed a break. BIKES. IN THE OFFICE. WHAT? Jealous - party of one. 

2. The Relish Fan of the Week! 

If you like coming to my blog for Fan Friday, just go and subscribe to The Relish RIGHT NOW. They send an email out every Monday, featuring everything you need to know from the sports world for that week. Following them on their social channels is pretty awesome too, because they post breaking news throughout the week. I'm digging what they're doing, and I have no doubt you will too. 

3. CB Won $500 to Bella and Chloe Shop

If you followed my snaps this weekend, you'll know that I had my first invite to an event for my new Instagram account Dallas Love List. In true CB fashion, he made a B-Line to the raffle ticket sales. One thing you should know about CB is that he buys any and all raffle or lotto tickets he can get his hands on. He rarely wins, but tells me it's not about winning, it's about the thrill of imagining what you'd buy if you did win. 

Well, then they called his name for the GRAND PRIZE. We were a little drunk... FREE WHISKEY... and you guys should have seen us in that shop with $500 burning a hole in our pockets. Neither of us shop at places where $500 gets you 5 things, and I swear we looked like drunk Beverly Hillbillies bopping around that store with excitement. 

LOLZZZ. Losers. 

I got a hat, new sunnies and a vintage ring (show on the band of the watch above) that for some reason reminds me of Veenie. CB got that great watch which is made in Deep Ellum and new brown shades. Safe to say we are BEACH READY thanks to that giveaway.

Also, I'll never make fun of his raffle ticket purchases ever again. 

4. Diet Bet || 30x30x30 update

I joined a diet bet about a month ago, and it ended last night at midnight. I got on the scale to weigh this morning and I was 0.7 pounds away from winning. ZERO POINT SEVEN. ARGHHHHH. ARGH ARGH ARGH. I worked so hard this month, that is frustrating. I have until Thursday at 11:59pm to weigh in though, so fingers crossed I can dehydrate myself down to 0.7 pounds lighter between now and then.  

JK I wouldn't do that..............

I do have to say I am frustrated, I feel like I worked my butt off this past month. 
:( 

I'm stupid excited about this new insta account. You probably picked up on that by now though...

I started it purely for selfish reasons and I'm excited about it purely for selfish reasons. I want free stuff and I want free stuff to come in the form of food, cocktails and events invites. 

So sue me. 

Plus, I'm having a blast doing it. CB and I have started branching out with restaurants and bars, trying a ton of new places in the past few weeks. I set a goal of 1,000 followers before I board the plane to VA Beach tonight. Fingers crossed I get there. 

I would highly recommend you guys start your own instagram account for your city, it's so fun and different -- way less stressful -- than a personal/blog instagram account. When it comes to Dallas Love List, I don't care what anyone else is posting, and I don't find myself comparing my account to anyone else's. See.... fun, right? So go start your own! 


OK THAT'S ALL I GOT. OFF TO THE BEACH WE GO!
Well, after a full workday that is.....
